Odd timing, given the recent mis-pressing sent out from Asus (as I first saw on slashdot).

This seems like more of a complete pressing botch-up, versus the Asus CD which contained the proper software plus confidential and personal software along with an illegal keygen software hack. It'd be interesting to know if the pressing plant did just mis-label the CDs, or if there was some additional pressing mis-hap.

Due to a similar mix-up at a wholly different facility, every Ubuntu CD with a serial number ending in '7' is made of pure, unadulterated cocaine.

I thought this was about Narco Billiards, and the well known fact that it is a whole hell of a lot more fun to play pool when you're high.

But, whatever.

Meanwhile, a group of Mexicans is wondering why their musical hero seems to have embraced the underground circuit-bending glitch noise scene

Honestly, when I first saw this, I thought Narco bollards...

The incident follows another strange occurrence involving Cisco two weeks ago, when lower case ts temporarily disappeared from the networking giant's homepage.

I think this is probably a disgruntled Cisco employee, possibly even a little Cisco Fight Club, acting out small and humorous passive-aggressive attacks against the company. I look forward to the next caper - routers which are locked onto the IP of Boohbah Zone.

Ha, me too! I was looking forward to knocking over vehicle barriers to see if they're filled with sweet sweet candy.
