Geek Comrades: You Have Nothing To Lose But Your Sitemeter

I know we have slightly more important, slightly more screwed up things in the world, but if you want to see some high quality rants this afternoon go to Google, type in "Sitemeter" and click on the "Blogs" selection. It's a blog geek rant-fest the likes of which we haven't seen since Microsoft Vista came out (or any day since the introduction of Real Player 3, 4, 5, 6, 7,8, 9, 10, ad infinitum).

You see Sitemeter did the dreaded "upgrade" this weekend. As a Sitemeter geek myself who has been trying to access things while grading papers today....I must say I agree with every hyper-geeky expletive you will find. Unimaginably awful "upgrade". So bad Sitemeter has already given up and is moving accounts back to the "old" system.

So while we blogger types might not be able to Smash the State, Eat the Rich or write a decently constructed sentence, we have been able to thwart the evil "updating" of Sitemeter. For now. But who knows what updating evil lurks in the hearts of programmers...
