Slashdotty and loving it

slashdot is one of my favorite sites - excellent karma, geek babes (I wish;) ) and always-late news by CmdrTaco, CowboyNeal & their cohorts. What netizen could resist?

The goatse folks are unmentionable, yet they are very very good at getting FP, or First Post, and sites were being slashdotted before they were instalanched,
which is a strange thing indeed.

I almost constantly have mod-points, am meta-moderating, but have not so far, been able to get a single story published on Slashdot, only to see the same stories show up a day, week or month later.

Of course, one might call an obsession with a techno-geek-proto-socialist-uber-snooty website somewhat dotty, but there are dottier things out there:

The new site, Distinct Dottiness v.02, now contains general Harry Potter information, rather than simply Luna Lovegood stuff,
This site's content is accessible to any browser or Internet device.
However, the design may appear odd if viewed in a graphical browser
My front page is coming to a close, so please make sure you have your arms and legs inside the browser at all times. Below you'll find some memberships and Webrings, and then this ride is pretty much over. But never fear. If you can't find your way back to the top of this page, there're links down there too, 'cause I'm nice (and kind of redundant).

Look what you've gotten yourself into now
