Yep, I went to place an order while it was down. I noticed it was down, hit Slashdot to see if this was news or my local network, saw nothing, did a little work and then hit it 30 minutes later to place my order. Some orders will be permanently lost but that is normal for any business over the course of doing business.

"Demands for college degrees and IT certifications and the ability to get IT security clearances should not be a priority in hiring,.. Forget education..." - Schwartau

While we are at it why don't we remove the same criteria from becoming a doctor, lawyer, or engineer. Not a good idea? I didn't think so either.

I have to say that I see no reason to use wireless networks when a much faster and more reliable hard wired network is an option. I'm not saying they should not have wireless available, just that classroom computers (any non mobile device really) should be hard wired.

Bethesda Criticized Over Buggy Releases 397

SSDNINJA writes "This editorial discusses the habit of Bethesda Softworks to release broken and buggy games with plans to just fix the problems later. Following a trend of similar issues coming up in their games, the author begs gamers to stop supporting buggy games and to spread the idea that games should be finished and quality controlled before release – not weeks after."

The iPhone app has a 1.5 star rating. It hasn't been updated in quite some time and doesn't work on [my] iPhone 3gs. It does seem to work fine on [my] iPhone 3g and [friends] iPhone 4g. It did work on the iPhone 3gs before the last update to the app though, so it is something they broke. The problem is that the video and audio is out of sync and unwatchable.
