Comment wtf slashdot? (Score 0) 138

I don't really care about this post, but at home I get the old slashdot and at work I get the new (fucked up) slashdot. I don't know why. I have been a slashdot subscriber for a long time, nearly since slashdot started (my user id is 3000, I can't seem to see it anymore since they don't want me or anyone to know anymore). I still like the old slashdot better than the new. Why the fuck does the new management have to fuck things up? They had a good thing going here, why fuck it up?

Yes, we know; before long half the people waiting to board airliners will be bulked out to double their normal width. Meanwhile, Timothy managed to jam an amazing amount of stuff into his new hoodie. Or jacket, as he prefers to call it.

I realize this might be unsettling for Slashdot users used to living in the past. Sorry for that.

Submission Godaddy ssh access down over 24 hours!->

Godaddy is actively blocking posts to the community forum about this issue. Methinks perhaps all the competent techs are on vacation on the holiday weekend leaving paying customers screwed!

Submission Dice ads cause 100% CPU usage!

dbryson writes: Dice ads cause 100% CPU usage and both Slashdot and Digg don't notice! Doesn't matter what browser! Are they running ad blockers on their own site and don't know???? Luckily, I have a dual core processor and have an extra core available to do something besides run the Dice ad!

Never trust an operating system.
