Here are some of our favorite Facebook statuses to come out of this morning’s clusterfuck:
Birmingham Small Arms Company:
Facebook seems to think that BSA stands for Birmingham Small Arms Co., a now defunct major motorcycle, firearm, and machine production conglomerate in the UK. I guess their algorithm for determining this works better for topics like Christmas or Jeremy Lin.
Hall of Fame:
Hate on the Gateway featuring Apache Tomcat and the upstream server:
Quoth the BCA:
NOTICE: WE WILL BE HOLDING OFF SALES UNTIL TOMORROW, SO PLEASE GO BACK TO BED. BROWN MARKETPLACE APPEARS TO BE DOWN. BSA IS ATTEMPTING TO RESOLVE THE PROBLEM WITH TOUCHNET, THE COMPANY THAT SUPPLIES THE SITE, BUT WE HAVEN’T HEARD ANY GOOD NEWS YET. WE CROSS EVERY ONE OF OUR FINGERS THAT THE PROBLEM WILL BE FIXED BY THEN AND ARE SO SO SORRY.
We will honor tickets that made it through (there were about 40), but don’t think it’s fair to honor tickets that only made it partially through, as we cannot account for every student this happened to. As always, send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Those 40 people must feel like they just won the lottery.
