Journal Journal: Slashdot breaks slashdot again. 4

OK, you've done it again. When I follow a link from the front page to a story, I get the nice usable old style interface. When I comment on an article, then click on the link to the article at the top of the page, I get the screwed up are-you-mad-who-likes-this-manure beta interface.


The link from the front page is:
The link on the page itself is:

Hey, Slashdot, when I'm looking at the page I can see the bleeding title on the page itself, AND in the link, I don't need it in the URL. And why the heck does the URL make a difference?

Journal Journal: Beta Index, begone! 2

Somehow Slashdot turned on the Beta index back on for me, and since I had no idea that it had been turned on I assumed this was more leakage from Beta back to the regular Index.

Good god.

All I can say is, they must be subcontracting to Sirius Cybernetics Corporation. It's appalling. It must never be released.

Journal Journal: It's a Journal 2

This is a journal entry. It's just like any other journal entry, except that it's completely self-referential and pointless. It's here because it's here, and it cherishes a secret ambition of becoming a world-famous blog posting. It's destined to be sadly disappointed, and will commit suicide with patent ink remover and powerful magnets in a lonely hotel room in Poughkeepsie a few days before its forty-second birthday.
