  • Yet another mac bites the dust on use.perl. I realize I don't have any hard numbers, but it sure *feels* like a lot of people have hardware problems with them. It's been enough to scare me away, anyway.

      When a mac works flawlessly for yet another day, it is not an exceptional event. That's why you don't hear posts like "my Dell laptop running gentoo has been up for 47 days!", either

      When a mac you have used for 2-4 years gives up the ghost, it's remarkable because it is so long in the tooth. When a mac you have used for 0-2 years gets hardware problems, it's remarkable because they have a reputation for lasting so very long.
