Journal Journal: This is nuts

Two recent story titles on Slashdot:

Washington Bans Chemicals; Industry Freaks
Microsoft's 'Men in Black' Kill Florida Open Standards Legislation

Why do I continue reading Slashdot? Why do I put up with this juvenile content? Maybe it's time to think of retirement.

Journal Journal: Database maintenance

Slashdot posting has been down for two hours now. Attempts to post are greeted with the rude message, "Database maintenance is currently taking place.". Two hours to do database maintenance? Give me a break!

p.s. They're still managing to put stories up on the front page though. Go figure.

p.p.s. I checked back, and posting is still down after four hours.

What this country needs is a dime that will buy a good five-cent bagel.
