Jogging and twittering do not mix, British man proves

According to this article on upi.com, a man in Bristol, England had an accident on his morning jog to work. You see, 23 year old James Coleman was running to work and posting a tweet on his Blackberry when he hit a large branch. He is now the laughingstock of the office.
Moral of this story: don't be a twit.


Ok Cupid is down :(

Oh noes! My new favorite website, Ok Cupid, is down. While I am unable to verify why, despite an extensive search of Teh Internets, the wikipedia entry states that the site went down at midnight on May 29, 2009. I don't know what time zone Ok Cupid is based in, so I don't know what that means for me in terms of when the site actually crashed.

Edit: ok, so when I checked at 10:46 Pacific time, the following message was on ok cupid:


We thought it would be cool to get a cat for the office, but we needed a litter box, and there wasn't really room in the bathroom, so we put it next to these servers in the back, and everything would have been fine, but the A/C repair guy was allergic and the cat reacts badly to loud noises and there were all these wires hanging back there and a bunch of surprisingly flammable packing material...

Erik thought it would be JUST AWESOME to put a paperclip on the end of a rubber band and shoot it at Vinay's eye, and it would have just been Erik and Vinay's problem except Vinay had a cup of coffee and was standing over James, who was fixing our router at the time...

Anyway, we'll have things back up soon. Sorry for the inconvenience.

That explains it. Spilled coffee and a cat related fire. Carry on.
