This comment reminded me of an internal talk I attended at Bell
Labs.  It had the single most powerful slide I've ever seen in a
talk.  It was a talk about internal networking, and the slide looked
like your standard network diagram -- lots of circles with lots of
lines connecting them.  The computation centers were networked.
UUCP was on there, and datakit.

But dead in the middle of the slide was a circle that had absolutely
no connections with anything.  Of course, somebody asked about, and
was told "Oh.  That's the networking department..."

As I recall, said department ceased to exist about a month later...

 AT&T seemed pretty clueless about networking.

Якщо у наступні дні у вас у DW'шній Reading Page з'явиться 1225 дописів 5-3х річної давнини від yours truly, ви не дивуйтеся, ггг.
Я вирішив імпортувати їх сюди, а Г+ згодом закрити. Роблю я це via xml-rpc, де у LJ.XMLRPC.postevent є аргумент props.opt_backdated (всіляких дивних параметрів там взагалі дохуя), який начебто регулює, чи з'явиться допис на the Reading Page. Чи працює opt_backdated насправді, я гадки не маю, тому якщо ваш DW зламається на кілька днів, то буде моя провина.
