Journal donutz's Journal: Slashdot's competitor in overloading websites....

I saw what looked to be an interesting article on Google News this morning:

Alien Textures 'Weird Stuff'
Astrobiology Magazine - 2 hours ago
Nearby where the Spirit rover is now surveying, one of the most unusual formations has geologists scratching their heads for a good terrestrial analogy.

First time I tried to access it, I got no response. Now an hour later, I'm getting this:

mysql://astronaut:@localhost/astrobio failed to connectCan't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock' (2)

We all knew about the "Slashdot Effect", I guess now that effect has competition -- the Google News Effect.

The best way to avoid responsibility is to say, "I've got responsibilities."
