jkrise's Journal: Strange behaviour of Slashdot

Journal by jkrise

Ever since an article on "Windows User Experiments with Linux for 10 days" was put up, Slashdot has been behaving very strangely indeed. Initially, I was unable to post anything on any topic.... the past 4 topics appear as if there are NO REPLIES for the past few hours...

After I changed my browser that doesn't contain my id profile, I'm able to see the page, but the moment I log in and try to post, I get vague errors like Internal Server Error, Get a New Form and Try Again... very puzzling.

It's been a few months since I started posting actively until last coupla' weeks, and I remember encountering similar problems with the site back then. Looks like Slashcode is highly flexible and the admins can play around a lot and do so without lot of people noticing or compaining. Either that, or the site appears different for paid subscribers, freeloaders and unlogged users. Crazy...

It is easier to write an incorrect program than understand a correct one.

Working...
