Some People Shouldn't Be Allowed to Program

I refer specifically to whoever programmed the A/C units installed in a certain (not to be named) colocation facility. They were programmed to reboot once a month, at at 23:59 on the last day of the month, and restart at 00:00 on the first of the month. Last night, February 28th, at 23:59, they shut down, and today, February 29th, leap day, they did not restart at 00:00. We can only assume they would have restarted tomorrow, March 1, at 00:00.

Wrong Movie Title

Newsweek's cover this week is John McCain vs. the right wingers who hate him:

(That's the best image I could find on their web site.)

The text is "There Will Be Blood", with the subtitle "Why the right hates John McCain".

I do wonder if the Newsweek cover editor thought of using "No Country For Old Men" instead.

I'd like this to be the year of "No Presidency for Old White Men", myself.
