Stardate 44429.6. Today we will be heading into the deep realms of logging... Wait not this is Log Captains not Captains Log.

We will even cover the algorithm of algorithms Paxos and how it works.Be not afraid of the algorithms for they will shed their secrets when tennis balls are applied! Yellow tennis balls!
