Real World Stuff writes: "A total eclipse of the Moon occurs during the night of Wednesday, February 20/21, 2008. The entire event is visible from South America and most of North America (on Feb. 20) as well as Western Europe, Africa, and western Asia (on Feb. 21). During a total lunar eclipse, the Moon's disk can take on a dramatically colorful appearance from bright orange to blood red to dark brown and (rarely) very dark gray."

By implementing FireHose, Slashdot.org allows for users to vote, or "digg", articles for promotion to publishing on the web site. Beta implementation of the kludge process introduces new coloring scheme, and more user input. Slashdot.org clings to the original roots of Robert Malda, and refuses to fall prey to the style over substance offerings of other collaborative web sites. With a site that can count life span in decades, it is refreshing to see a breath of fresh, albeit halitosic, air into the venerable Slashdot.org."
