How can one work as a CISSP? Please enlighten us, as it seems you get
God-almighty-like superpowers when you manage to land on a job like
that. Myself, I'm still a "Not a CISSP".

What's wrong with Slashdot today?

Oh my ghod, it's full of jews!!


I don't see what the point is in pulling in the Germans in this
discussion..


(Hint: Before posting to a worldwide list asking what's wrong with a
site,
a few things to check:

0) Wait at least 5-10 minutes to make sure it's not a short-lived
issue that
will be fixed before people have a chance to read your mail. Go have
a beer,
or a cookie, or something else age-appropriate. It will probably be
better by
the time you get back.


The reverse should also apply.
Now, did you wait 5-10 minutes to see if it was really hacked?


1) Ask a friend (preferably in another country, or at least a
different ISP)
whether they see the issue as well.


I work as a CISSP at an ISP. I know how these things works. You're out
of control, man!


2) Describe any steps you've taken to verify the problem isn't at
your end.
For instance, if you're using somebody else's wireless connection,
maybe this
happened to you:

There's no need. As I said, I'm a CISSP.
Now you get back to school, seems as if you still got stuff to learn
about how the Internet works.


3) Bill Joy's Law of Demos: "Never precede a demo with anything more
predictive than 'Watch This!'". When reporting a problem, don't do
that.
Give at least a rough idea of what you are observing - site times
out,
connection refused, connects but no pages returned, all pages have
either
goatse or n3td3v pictures on them, etc...


You've got an attitude problem. I'm sorry, but you need help. 


For the record, it looks fine from here (at least the front page)
