OSNews, Generic OSes As you've undoubtedly noticed, OSNews has been down most of the day. We're back up now, running like we always do. We rarely have this kind of extensive downtime, so in the interest of full disclosure, here's what happened. If you're expecting some sexy story - think again.

There was a time in far off Soviet computing that the chips used to jump out of their sockets.

The sockets were made locally to metric dimensions, while the chips were imported from the US, so 25 to 25.4 ratio eventually made them pop by themselves.
