2/18    What happened to wall?
        \_ Died a natural death?
        \_ phase 1: soda got hacked, politburo disabled EVERYONE's account,
           most people didn't bother going through the procedure to get turned
           back on.
           phase 2:  vp didnt figure out how to keep soda successfully mounting
           NFS storage until recently, so a lot of people had trouble logging
           over the last few months.  I'm shocked i can log in now !
           kind of sucks, but i guess all things end.
           \_ recently? it's still dying.
                \_ as i write this, it is currently dead.
        \_ what do you suppose the end game for soda is?   just turn
           it into a forum on something like yahoogroups?   motd become a
           google wave doc?
           \_ The end game is it will be thrown into E&S, with all the disks,
              and put into a box and shelved in a giant warehouse in emeryville
              as the camera pans out and harrison ford goes "Fools."
              \_ Lol that explains the countdown timer.
              \_ Wrong. Soda is already gone. This is a VM. Didn't you know?

2/18    Why is there now Firefox 3.5.8 when there was already 3.6 a month ago?
        \_ Why is there Windows XP SP3 when there was already Vista?
           Generally companies manage patches for at least two levels of
           product.  -tom
           \_ I see.  So Fx 3.6 is more like a new version than an update to
              3.5.x.  --- OP
              \_ 3.6 is not an automatic update from 3.5, at least yet, so
                 they're both being maintained.  -tom
