LJ Crash of '05! Bah! Back in my day, we had the Great UCD Server Meltdown of '96! I was THERE, ya whippersnappers! It was violent! Bloody! We had an entire student body ready to riot in the streets! In the snow... well, mud! Uphill, both ways! You never SEEN a perpetual uphill riot! We were without EMAIL for days! Pah, you young snots don't know suffering!

Actually, I was in the server room when it went down. Watching an entire university's server group freak out and systematically cannibalize and rend themselves to death WAS pretty cool, in a psychotic-geek kind of way.
