Moira sprawled out on the couchThere wasn’t really that much exciting going on on Tuesday. There was an accident or something on I-10. This made me about 20 minutes late for work. At least nothing really important had happened in those 20 minutes. Work was relatively ordinary, except that someone accidentally unplugged the secondary NIC on an important box.

I also got a really badly mangled request. Someone who isn’t very computer literate said, “Can you take this document and turn it into a URL?” A URL is a relatively short text string with a protocol identifier in it, like http://example.org/path/to/document.php . They meant “Can you take this document and turn it into a web page?”. What they meant was relatively easy to do. I just wonder how people manage to mangle relatively simple things like that in this day and age.
