Humor The heartland turned vicious this week when an Oklahoma town threatened to call in the FBI because its web site was hacked by Linux maker Cent OS. Problem is CentOS didn't hack Tuttle's web site at all. The city's hosting provider had simply botched a web server. This tale kicked off yesterday when Tuttle's city manager Jerry Taylor fired off an angry message to the CentOS staff. Taylor had popped onto the city's web site and found the standard Apache server configuration boilerplate that appears with a new web server installation. Taylor seemed to confuse this with a potential hack attack on the bustling town's IT infrastructure.

So...when do the "I wuz hax0red by CentOS, and all I got was this lousy apache placeholder" t-shirts arrive?

You have to admit that Jerry Taylor has done well for himself though - being semi-litterate, and an obvious oaf, he's still landed himself a city gig. If only more of us could realize our potential this same way.
