This Week I Learned - Week #152

This Week I Learned -

* For Azure Virtual Machine instances in an availability set, there will be at least a 30-minute interval between each VM in an availability set (if they are in different update domains). Maintenance is scheduled to only impact one region at a single time in each regional pair. This enables you to deploy VMs across those regions to reduce the impact of the maintenance - Azure Maintenance notification

* Great idea - Six Chix is a collaborative comic strip series drawn by six female cartoonists who rotate the drawing duties through the week based on a fixed schedule. Five months after the strip was launched, the six women met each other for the first time on May 27, 2000 at the National Cartoonists Society Reubens Dinner in New York. Six Chix was the brain child of the late Jay Kennedy who in 2000, when Six Chix was launched, was the editor-in-chief of King Features

* Only in India - Vijay Mallya, a Member of the Rajya Sabha (2002–2008, 2010 – present) or the upper house of the Parliament of India has been declared a ‘wilful defaulter’ by State Bank of India, a public sector bank (of which Government of India holds around 58.59% equity shares) for defaults on nearly Rs.7,000 crore loans to his long-grounded Kingfisher Airlines.  IDBI (as on 31 March 2014, Government of India held 76.72% shares in IDBI Bank) extended loans to Mallya's Kingfisher & has ended up with bad debts of Rs 700 crore. Bank of India (government-owned since nationalisation in 1969) gave over Rs 300 crore after being pledged office stationary like boarding pass printers & folding chairs.
