Herein you will find either the definitive documentation on an HBase topic as of its standing when the referenced HBase version shipped, or it will point to the location in Javadoc or JIRA where the pertinent information can be found. The source for this guide can be found in the _src/main/asciidoc directory of the HBase source.

Your cluster’s operation can hiccup because of any of a myriad set of reasons from bugs in HBase itself through misconfigurations — misconfiguration of HBase but also operating system misconfigurations — through to hardware problems whether it be a bug in your network card drivers or an underprovisioned RAM bus (to mention two recent examples of hardware issues that manifested as "HBase is slow").

You will also need to do a recalibration if up to this your computing has been bound to a single box.

Here is one good starting point: Fallacies of Distributed Computing.

The Sims: Hot Date is the third expansion pack released for the strategic life-simulation computer game The Sims developed by Maxis and published by Electronic Arts.

It was released on November 14, 2001 with overall positive reviews thanks to the addition of a downtown area outside the neighborhood, which became the set up for upcoming expansions packs in which new areas were added; it also served as the inspiration for later games including The Sims 2: Nightlife and The Sims 3: Late Night.

In addition to many new items for households, the new downtown area is Hot Date's most significant new addition to The Sims.

Sims can now use their telephones to call a taxi that takes them to downtown Sim City, which is composed of lots such as shopping centers, recreation areas, restaurants, or nightclubs.

While a Sim is on a date, the Sim can be controlled, but not actually give orders to its date.

Downtown features lots of brand-new, downtown-only items, like food vendors, clothing stores, picnic areas, and duck ponds that Sim couples can use to keep themselves busy, and a few new items, like the restaurant booth seat, that'll let them get to know each other better.
