Clueless reporting, or yet another example of how people just don't grok the Internet.
The Japanese ringtone market and the joys of cartels.
People watching for fun and profit. My favorite quote -
"If the programming world has a wall, the Perl folks will figure out a way of getting more graffiti on it than anyone else with a more interesting design and possibly on one line."
The Coral Content Distribution Network, a nice way to deal with slashdotting. Even though it seems to be acting up a bit in the past 15 minutes (the price of fame, I'm sure) I'm already using it to deflect the (still ongoing) Kittydotting, and have also deflected incoming referrers from Slashdot (just in case):
"/^http:\/\/([a-z]+\.|)slashdot.org/" => "http://the.taoofmac.com.nyud.net:8090" . $_SERVER["REQUEST_URI"]
Update: A word of warning: Coral seems to have trouble with redirects, so make sure you don't redirect requests coming through it in the first place (check HTTP_VIA for CoralWebPrx), otherwise it will start nesting the hostname and come out with stuff like hostname.nuyd.net.0.hostname.nyud.net:8090.
