    Christ, now Youtube has an outage on the user video console. And for YEARS people have been complaining that their subscribers aren't getting notified of new video uploads, and the viewer counts never match from console to below the video itself.

    This reminds me of how AOL failed. They got rid of the picture uploads, then turned their profile system over to Bebo (which they later admitted was a mistake), then the software just hung and hung and 50% of the time you couldn't get your Inbox to open. People rarely chat in their chat rooms anymore which was the core of AOL back in the day.

    Why can't these tech companies get their shit together. Seriously. Who's sitting at the helm?

    Haha, this is true. Since I live on the "east coast" maybe I'll run to the Midwest and start tweeting about how I've never seen corn or grain fields before icon_rolleyes.gif

    DOS attacks require a fleet of otherwise-idle infected machines on high-speed connections around the world in order to be almost impossible to block on an individual IP basis. More people need to ditch pre-Win7 OS, subscribe to reliable antivirus, and not leave their PCs fully active when they aren't sitting in front of them. (insert obligatory mac snark comment here)

    Ah hell, who cares.

    lolz it's so funny because the nature of the tectonic plates makes Earthquakes felt farther away therefore the same measured quake will have more widespread damage. So that makes it news. Not to mention Earthquakes are rare on the East Coast and happen daily on the West Coast. So that makes the event very rare. But no one understands the concept of plate tectonics or really care about where geologically events are rare especially self-centered Californians.
