The Core Dump

A strong conviction that something must be done is the parent of many bad measures

[By Nic Lindh on Tuesday, 12 July 2005]

Oy, vey

If you’ve visited the site during the last day or so, you either got some kind of error or timeout, or saw this:

Oh, The Humanity

Things were not so super great for a while, there.

But the site is up again, and running the latest version of Ruby on Rails and the latest Subversion trunk of Typo.

Behind the scenes, a huge morality play about being a little too far out on the bleeding edge which I’m too wiped to relay right now.

Suffice it to say that whenever you’re really tired in front of the computer and the little voice in your head starts saying things like, “Mohaha. Teh leetness,” you should go to bed. Immediately. Just put the mouse down and go to bed.
