Archduke Ferdinand has been assassinated. Sleeper cells awaken. Our time is nigh! (metblogs) (and also read this at Techcrunch.)

If this goes all the way to its potential peak, when does the "real world" have to start worrying about how much of our life is dependent to the internet? Also, why would a publicly owned company decide to specifically poke at these people?

Edit: YES I get about 97% of my news from Twitter. Thx.

Apparently the block was lifted before you posted this (centralgadget.com)*. Of course, that bit hasn't seemed to make it to Twitter yet.

*if I get my time zones correct

Well, there goes MY week. I made all that guacamole for NOTHING? Maybe another black Ivy League prof can get arrested, please.

For the record, I'm still too scared to even go to /b/

AT&T is claiming that there was a DDoS attack originating from one of 4chan IPs, and, hence, the reason for the block. [Ars Technica]

All I know is that, starting Friday, AT&T service has sucked-diddley-ucked - with dropped calls, text message failures, and a slew of other issues that have really made it difficult to use their service. I don't know if this was related or not, but things were particularly awful yesterday. I couldn't make a call out to save my life (not literally), and my girlfriend had four text messages arrive all at once - two of which were several hours old.




We all have ways of coping. I use sex and awesomeness.

Regarding Geek Squad - I've heard horror stories, but my experience was a-ok. A few months ago (there's a thread somewhere, but I'm lazy), my power supply went on me.
