Read .Net breakdown: More to come?.
Microsoft blames DNS for the problem (not its .NET infrastructure), but to take 5 days to fix a DNS resolution problem is unheard of.
Actually a 5 day DNS resolve is quite probable if there was a messup in the TTL (time to live) declaration.
Perhaps we should rename this site to TheServerSide.com - Your Anti-.Net Community. :} Surely there's more J2EE content to post/discuss.
These posts provide ample laughter. They hint at the ineffectiveness of those "millions of dollars", supposedly spent on .net's implementation. Perhaps, the money was spent on marketing ? Just a suggestion.
I suspect articles will be even more humorous when .net hits the production lines in February.
