This will never happen. The whole idea behind having such wacky computer based systems is to provide a sense of out of control to voters while giving control to to who has the big bucks. Remember government is not made for or from us. we just think it does. If a voting machine "borks" then there is plausible deniability. A chance for a recount, a way to skew the numbers to the benefit of those in charge. Simply put attempting to make a better system only pushes those who can manipulate that system out. So those who can manipulate a system will never allow something that makes it better. You know the old adage: "What's in it for me?" Ask a politician to make a fairer and more robust voting system and he/she will ask you "What's in it for me?"

An anonymous reader writes "The PlayStation Network down again — opps only for maintenance, from 5:00 PM PT – 6:00 PM PT. Sony posted this:

During this time you may:
* Not be able to access the PlayStation®Store
* Have difficulty signing in to the PlayStation®Network
* Not be able to play online games
* See a maintenance page when attempting to access the PlayStation®Network

Note: When you log into the PlayStation Network, a message may appear which states, “the PlayStation Network has been suspended”. This does not mean that your account has been suspended; it simply means the PlayStation Network has been taken offline. Please wait until the maintenance window has passed before attempting to connect to the PlayStation Network again. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.”

There is nothing to worry folks! Just a maintenance glitch!
