FYI

Just weeks before switching on a massive, super-efficient data center in

Concepts, like individuals, have their histories and are just as  incapable
of
withstanding the ravages of time as are individuals.  But in and through all
this
they retain a kind of homesickness  for the scenes of their childhood.
