Andy Baio: “More than anything, this strikes me as a special kind of discrimination against amateur creators on the Internet.”

It looks like Feedburner started doing some weird stuff with their users’ RSS enclosures, re-using the same filename over and over again.  I haven’t had a chance to look at it closely yet, but I think it’s going to break a lot of people.

Your CD has been gently taken from our CD Baby shelves with sterilized contamination-free gloves and placed onto a satin pillow.

A team of 50 employees inspected your CD and polished it to make sure it was in the best possible condition before mailing.

Our packing specialist from Japan lit a candle and a hush fell over the crowd as he put your CD into the finest gold-lined box that money can buy.

We all had a wonderful celebration afterwards and the whole party marched down the street to the post office where the entire town of Portland waved ‘Bon Voyage!’ to your package, on its way to you, in our private CD Baby jet on this day, Wednesday, March 1st.

Oh, pshaw, you probably say that to everyone who makes a purchase. 😉 The purchase in question? Redland by Anita Suhanin.

Matt Mullenweg on WordPress scalability: “With monolithic structures you hit a wall based on your hardware. In MU users are divided and can be partitioned easily, for example on WordPress.com we have the users partitioned between 4096 databases, which allows you to scale very cheaply and efficiently to hundreds of thousands and even millions of users and extremely high levels of traffic.”  Interesting.
