"Here comes everybody" spurred my interest after Dries quoted Clay Shirky during his DrupalCon keynote session. I'm hoping to learn whether "Don't plan, co-ordinate." is really the way forward or just an excuse to be lazy ;)
"Operation in progress..." and a whole bunch of "Read timed out" errors is all I get when I try to upgrade my Eclipse installation from 3.4.1 to 3.4.2.
It is also painfully clear that the current update manager (aka the 'new update manager') has problems coping with all these network time-outs. There's no way to cancel the whole update. I'll have to sit through all time-outs (one for each jar) because the update manager dialog is modal.
Because of fluctuations in the gravitational speed of the earth, 2008 will get an extra leap second.
Apparently, leap seconds are inserted approximately every 18 months so I guess the world is not going to end. I still wonder which software breaks (and how it breaks) because of this kind of external changes.
