It’s Random Attack Day, kittens! Why does China hate Github? Why does the Ukraine hate Rutgers? Why do Anons hate Anons? Bloggers jailed! Protesters kettled!
Of our several-day involuntary hiatus from the interwebs we shall not speak, except to say #BlameTheFeds. In all honestly, it’s probably really Linksys’ fault, but let’s #BlameTheFeds anyway. It’s sort of the default around here. Some people blame the full moon, some say it’s Mercury in retrograde, but for us, it’s #BlameTheFeds. Or Sabu. That would work, too. We still haven’t dropped that bombshell on him, have we? Stay tuned, kittens. We can’t hold on to info this hot forever!
