Journal: This is nuts

Journal by Brandybuck

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: Database maintenance

Journal by Brandybuck

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.

At the source of every error which is blamed on the computer you will find at least two human errors, including the error of blaming it on the computer.
