Technically, it shouldn’t have affected anything, but in reality, it did

Nice. This could be my new motto. BART installed a backup software system on a Wednesday night to resolve problems with the main system. The backup and main system together crashed a network switch, which brought the transit system to a halt. Commuters were stranded for two hours.
But, yeah. All that pointless garbage project managers do? This is why.

Right on, brother. Not that I'd want to *be* a PM, though.

FYI, everything in your entries comes through RSS perfect, except one thing: the links that you embed in your entry titles are somehow removed from the syndicated versions of your entries... Links in the entry itself seem to work just fine, however.

It's not like you follow the links, anyway. But, thanks for the feedback.
