top Average latency to Slashdot.org?
This was fun! Starting with my little router here in Tampa, the signal bounces to Washington DC, New Jersey, Atlanta, back up to Virginia, across to California. back to New York, before finally landing in Slashdot's native Illinois. Either that, or my IP geolocator is lying to me about the California piece. Ping times don't seem to increase enough to make it all plausible.

top Ask Slashdot: What Distros Have You Used, In What Order?
1. Debian Rex (cover disk on some computer magazine looong ago -- it was a single floppy)
2. Other early Debian releases, downloaded to Zip disks at college computer lab 3. More Debian, Slink onwards, from burned ISO images 4. Knoppix for a while, then back to 5. Debian Sarge, Etch, Lenny. Still use Squeeze on one virtual Rackspace server. But main squeeze now is, 6. Ubuntu, "current" release since Feisty Fawn.
Yeah, they're all flavors of Debian at heart. I don't really do

Take that thought just a bit further to arrive at this even starker conclusion: The associations seem to assume that everyone wants every last little bit of their content -- it's just that some are willing to pay for it and others aren't.
