    Here's some pretty useless trivia...

    I live near the West Island region of Montreal, and while walking on the Dorval lakeshore with @teitan, something caught my attention. I've seen that long bridge on the left of the picture all my life, but where is it actually?

    After looking at Google Maps, I am pretty confident that what we are looking at here is the Beauharnois generating station, a hydroelectricity station in southwestern Quebec. Likely due to the amount of electricity required to run hundreds of servers, and due to its proximity with Montreal (more workers) OVH (J&H's host) sits in the industrial district right next to said station. So, this means J&H is in the general direction of this photo.

    And since OVH is located in Quebec, you can be sure that J&H runs with hydroelectricity! This means renewable energy, thus good for the environment. J&H has not produced any carbon dioxide through its electricity use. That's fun.

    Yeah. Enjoy this stupid little photo:)
