This is my last post before the Slashcott tomorrow.

I have been an active and paying member of Slashdot for the better part of 15 years. I am already mourning its demise, as I view it is on its deathbed in terminal condition.

Slashdot is the abusive husband, it's users, the battered wife.

Slashdot says, "We're listening, we're listening."

Archaeologists announced Friday that they have discovered human footprints in England that are between 800,000 and 1 million years old — the most ancient found outside Africa, and the earliest evidence of human life in northern Europe.

A team from the British Museum, London's Natural History Museum and Queen Mary college at the University of London uncovered imprints from up to five individuals in ancient estuary mud at Happisburgh on the country's eastern coast."

This reminds me too much of FastMail's UI disaster of October 31st 2012 :(
