    I was looking into the Ultimate Spider-Man series having seen the new game *drool* and hit the dotcomics page where you can read the first three issues online.

    And I got this.
    Marvel.com just got hacked. DOH.

    I'd bet on the next issue of Spider-Man involving Peter Parker beating the crap out of a bunch of hackers.

    Mutant cyborg hackers from an alternate universe, of course. Such is the way with comics when they pass issue #100. When the author can't think of anything new, then we get villans from an alternate universe. :p

    I really should submit this to Slashdot...I might actually get an article posted, and get MR some publicity.

    It might be a good idea to /. MR though. I like actually being able to load the page :D

    Sorry for my ignorance. :eek:

    I just assumed that it (Apache) would have been safer on Mac than on Linux...

    ...*hides in shame under desk*....

    Funny for you perhaps. I have now been relegated to being forced to type this post under my desk while cowering in shame. ;) :)
