woops

hurr raidzone

Today: Reiserfs craps out on fileserver trying to free previously freed objects, and kupdated tries to deref a null pointer and oopses. Userland stops, but instead of halting, kernel continues to run other threads, including nfsd, which was apparently completely unaware that anything was amiss.

Writing to a filesystem which has already given up for the day should probably be considered harmful, I think.

Someone somewhere probably thinks that continuing to run after an oops in kupdated is a feature.

lazyweb ACTIVATE

I recall once encountering a website which acted as a repository of usernames and passwords for websites that require registration such as newspapers. I can't seem to find it now. Does anyone remember where it is?

I don't mean majcher's NYT registration generator, and I'm not looking for any specific website's username and password, just for this one site that acted as a registration clearinghouse.

Because "website" and "registration" and "username" and "password" and "database" aren't very unique search terms, Google is giving me nothing but web development tutorials.

Help, lazyweb, help!
