It's up. Visit, which is powered by Apache, PHP, and MySQL. I spent a fair amount of today getting the MySQL servers ready for it.

When they're done with the 9/11 hoopla, why not suggest that someone use that domain as a "remember when it was cool". You could have a low-bandwidth version of the site there, with only 10% of screen real-estate committed to ads instead of 70-80% like some pages, there could be no pop-ups, no flash, no java animation, and almost all text.

At least that's what I was expecting to find when I read the URL. ;-)

gosh guys... don't you think that's a little harsh? I mean ... why are you taking out your frustrations so pointedly on Jeremy?

He's nice enough to share his lessons from working at yahoo with us, and you have to be assholes to him, about things which he probably has little control over?

nice.. really nice guys.

Well, Derek is an ex-Yahoo who loves throwing stones at his former employer. And Dan (who I know from college) just like to be an ass. He's good at it. In fact, he prides himself on it. :-)

Heh. I forgive you John. I forget sometimes that other people read this thing. I will often say things to Z that appear rude or insensitive. I'm not really being that way, it's just how we talk to each other. Z's one of my dearest friends, and one of the few people on Earth with whom I have no complaints.

I used to, but then he got that TiBook and began to see some things my way. :)
