spun's Journal: Slashcode Follies 6

Journal by spun

The codemonkeys of Slashdot have obviously been pounding randomly on their keyboards recently. Here's a thought, if you are going to hire monkeys to maintain your code, you should at least test it before deploying it to your live servers. This hasn't been Rob Malda's personal blog for years, it's a fricken' business. Do you Slashdot employees like your jobs? Do you want them to continue to exist? If so, perhaps you should start treating this like a business and not like a hobby. Quit breaking things.

Slashcode Follies

  • There have been more than a couple around here in the past month or two. You need to be more specific...

    And perhaps less offensive to monkeys, while you're at it.
    • Monkeys, they get a bad rap (rep?). :-)

      Does /. actually make any money anyway? I've always gotten the impression it ran on a shoestring budget. The general rate at which it develops new features (shall we say, glacial) seems to confirm that it's just 2 devs and a monkey. Oops, did it again there.

        Well, since pudge is on the payroll, does he fill a monkey slot AND a dev slot, or just the former?

        (Sigh, and I stumble upon a bug in attempting to post a reply to a JE talking about bugs.)
