comment Does cloudflare know the decrypted content when using a https connection?
It's important to note that even with strict SSL, you'll never know if CloudFlare is compromised unless somebody illegally leaks it. If they are compromised, they can read everything.

comment How do servers with redundant power supplies balance consumption?
Fair enough, but given that most PSUs operate most efficiently nearest their rated loads, why would you ever want balanced? Running at <50% is going to nuke efficiency and I've never seen anything to suggest PSUs' wear-rates depend on their load. They're going to wear near the same rate whatever. I can't see a good reason for it in a redundancy setup. (Sorry if that sounds accusatory; this is really just a curiosity, it's a good answer without it).

Why would you ever not use High Efficiency mode? What advantages does balanced give?

comment How can I prevent accidentally jacking with a production database?
@Lilienthal It was a metaphor for high security theatre but you could emulate that cheaply attacking USB sticks to each developer and then having your automation check for at least two of their serial numbers when running dangerous things. In bigger teams you could then log to see who is interfering with production and hold the right people responsible when it all goes wrong.
