    When the server is down for maintenance, replacement of vacuum tubes, belts, worn parts and lubrication of gears and bearings, it is possible to use those old mod points as ball bearings in the server's machinery.

    Wait a minute, I thought you flipped them inside out and built web pages out of them.

      That would be a better option than letting unused mod points drain into our oceans.

        Within the North Pacific Gyre, there is a smaller, lesser known, SoylentNews mod point gyre. And speaking of gyres:

        Turning and turning in the widening gyre
        The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
        Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
        Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
        The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
        The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
        The best lack all conviction, while the worst
        Are full of passionate intensity.

        By some Irish poet.

          Only on SoylentNews would someone troll mod Keats. We all know who it was, the same idiot asking for advice on "Euro" cinema, not knowing the difference between "movies" and cinema, in the first place. "The worst, are full of passionate intensity."

    Oh, FFS, Danny, stop spreading disinformation. The servers have no balls, bearing or otherwise! They are all eunuchs!

      Linux is very similar to eunuchs, but does not have any actual eunuchs code. It isn't "genetically" eunuchs. See SCO vs IBM which began March 6, 2003 and is about to reach its 20th anniversary. The litigation has picked up steam again and moved back to New York court.
