Leafs tickets are seen as an investment to hold, not a conditional payment on success.
The Leaf team is an incredibly valuable sport property that is basically destroyed every year by the media that keep them incredibly valuable.
How? The players are given exalted status based on next to nothing on an achievement scale. People get excited about 5 game winning streaks. There’s so much micro-analysis that no one looks at what is required to actually get league, and playoff results.
I decided a long time ago, after the NHL went to massive TV timeouts and an extra playoff round, and silly shootouts (that affected the standings!) that I couldn’t follow the Leafs all the time anymore. The NHL is a very frustrating league; unclear in its approach to what is quite a simple game, determined to create rules designed to alter conduct that is shamelessly encouraged by its marketers.
This year, after Randy Carlyle exited, the Leafs were ran into the ground, to get a high draft pick. Why is this a good way to operate in the world’s major hockey league? Incentivizing a poor season record makes me very disinterested in a game that has markedly deteriorated through bad stewardship over the decades.
There will be no extra playoff revenue this year. The figures might look a bit bad this year. They still will never lose money. Toronto people love their team, and quality does not matter. Why is this? The early 70s teams were worse than this year. The 80s teams were worse than this year’s team. Everyone still came to see them, and read about them, and watched the TV sports. The asinine coverage in newspapers, websites and the blogosphere, of meaningless practices and irrelevant melodrama, is now just so much clickbait. It’s out of proportion to anything else in the NHL. The issue is not that fans pay to see the Leafs play. It’s that they pay to view those websites, and read those newpapers, watch and listen to those shows, podcasts, and the sports radio circus. It’s something everyone has in common, and Toronto will always be this way about the Leafs.
Unconditional interest, no matter what happens. Since even the mundane process of not winning is so intensely interesting, and profitable for so many media outlets, and for the team itself, the outcome of games becomes incidental. It’s something that might affect the value of your investment in Leaf tickets. As long as something is happening, it’s automatically fascinating. Unless you actually decide you’re not interested, and start following something else.

Often we call services internally, whether it is a mail gateway or a web service. In production, if high availability is a requirement, we want to create a virtual ip for the service and add two or more physical servers as listeners.
I usually use layer 7 service pools when network load is low, and the overhead of going through the stack to get to the layer 7 headers is acceptable. For SSL offloading it is essential. Note that I don’t use the load balancer to do the redirect; I like to use nginx for that. Often, conditions will arise (force secure for this url) that are easier to manage with nginx, and I like the flexibility of being able to use the nginx feature set for customer requests.
However, on a Barracuda, the only way to create an internal load balancer pool is to use “TCP Proxy” service type, not “Layer 4 – TCP”. Does not seem to be documented anywhere, but this is the only way it works.
Assuming you are running at least version 3.6 firmware, you can create the Service Name, and give it an IP and Real Servers, and expose the Virtual IP to the LAN.

When you get “JavaScript runtime is out of memory; server shutting down instance” errors in your FMS logs, and your app won’t stay loaded, and none of your clients can connect, you need to increase the amount of memory available to the script engine.
In the docs for FMS 4.0, the JSEngine tag is “deprecated”. This means that when your app runs out of the default 1024K, and you try to crank it up to 51200, it’s actually not changing anything. In FMS4.0, you have to change the xml tag, in Application.xml, to ScriptEngine, increase the setting, and restart fms, to fix this.

Use this vcl_fetch to add a custom Expires header to objects. This example adds one day (86400 seconds).

sub vcl_fetch {
set beresp.grace = 4h;
set beresp.ttl = 300s;
C{
#include
static char timebuf[30];
char *format = {“%a, %d %b %Y %H:%M:%S GMT”};
struct tm timestruct;
time_t now;
time(&now);
now+=86400;
gmtime_r(&now, &timestruct);
strftime(timebuf, 30, format, &timestruct);
VRT_SetHdr(sp, HDR_BERESP, “\010Expires:”, timebuf, vrt_magic_string_end);
}C

return(deliver);
}
