Caller: "No i'm not! I'm looking at a big fish!"
Me: "That IS your desktop!"
Caller: "Oke... thank you... bye..."

I'm so tired...

Oke, 2 out of 4. Today's item was accepted and posted on the front page. As I suspected (yeah Sherlock?) it's more the human factor (read: editor of the day) then anything that decides if the stuff makes the frontpage. Go figure... who would have thought... ;)

I can seem to figure out why slashdot accepts and rejects stories. In the FAQ it gives a number of reasons, and that should be the end of that. I guess it's just the human factor that decides if the story is meant for the public. But it's a shame there is no short explanation why stories are rejected.

Can't put my finger on it. Will post more on that subject when i've got some spare time. Until then: Apple to the core!
