Hi David,

"The Eight Fallacies of Distributed Computing" from around 1994 pretty
much sums it up:

http://blogs.oracle.com/jag/resource/Fallacies.html

I recently saw this:

http://code.google.com/status/appengine/detail/datastore/2011/12/06#ae-trust-detail-datastore-put-error_rate

in a 12/06 email from a dev crying that Google Apps Engine datastore was
down. BTW, that's not to run down Google particularly, just an indication
of what can happen and you can't do anything about it.

Oh, and Happy New Year, everyone!

I agree with "network devices in between" as the cause.

This is the biggest problem with communication programs ... so much can
happen between point a and point b ... and none of it is detectable by the
applications in question.
