You've reached CYNICISM PERSONIFIED. We were once a weblog devoted to "news filtered through the cold, hard light of cynicism...," but lately we have neglected this noble goal and the blog has fallen into disrepair. To help fight the spam that had taken over the comments section, I have blocked access to the main blog. Perhaps it will return in the future.
Meanwhile, if you want to read the archives (still filled with spambot posts), you can do so at http://andre.facadecomputer.com/mt/archives/.
