Wow. End of an era? Admittedly I stopped reading /. at least five years ago.

I have a sub 1000 Slashdot user number. It was my first site I visited every morning. When a story I submitted made it to the front page I high fived everyone in my university computer lab. To be that young again!

To be fair, at least this double isn't from 3 months ago, and will actually be deleted in a few minutes, as soon as a mod sees it.

I just want to say that making a double post about Cdr Taco resigning is the most appropriate tribute imaginable.

What's funny is that the double has three times as many comments as the original.
