Rant

A reason to hate Tuttle, OK

Tuttle what?

Yeah, I'd never heard of the place either, but the city manager's total lack of a clue is going to earn the town a black mark in the minds of IT workers everywhere.

Short version- this guy doesn't seem to know the difference between an OS, a web server, and spyware, and as a result threatened to sic the FBI on Linux maker CentOS for "hacking" the city's web site. The story is funnier than it sounds, as well as more aggravating.

Here's a transcript of the e-mail conversation between the bonehead in question and CentOS's lead developer. You can't write comedy this good. :-)
