San Jose-based, free blog-hosting and software company, JournalSpace.com has unceremoniously closed up shop and gone out of business. JournalSpace.com was not a victim of the economic downturn, however; the company's sudden failure was a direct result of sabotage by "a disgruntled member" of the company that hosted JournalSpace's site. The now sparse JournalSpace blog provides a rather personal view into the circumstances that led to the company's failure:"... yes, I was a huge idiot, first and foremost.It was the guy handling the IT (and, yes, the same guy who I caught stealing from the company, and who did a slash-and-burn on some servers on his way out) who made the choice to rely on RAID...

A few members of the crew here at HotHardware have had experience selling or servicing PCs for large retail chains at one time or another, and each one of us can tell a handful of stories about clients that didn't take our advice with regard to power protection and ultimately paid the price. It never ceased to amaze us how someone could drop upwards of three thousand dollars on a high-end PC only to scoff at the $50 surge protector recommendation. "No thanks", they'd say, "The $5 power strip will do." And inevitably some of them would be back in the shop a few days, weeks, or even months later because their system's got "hit" during the... Read more...
