Pretty terrible news. John Peel was an excellent radio DJ, with an obvious passion for music. He was utterly hapless at putting the records on at the right speed, and it was all part of the charm of his show. I always kept meaning to listen to his R1 show more often, and now I don't get the chance.
so, is the whole blogs.sun.com thing a place for employees to vent their inevitable frustrations, but in a place where absolutely no one will ever see them and thus they can't cause any damage whatever?

Roller seems to be a bit of a PITA. There's no trivial way to preview a post, for one. You have to save a draft, then "Edit" the draft, then post it properly. Seems rather a silly way of doing things.
Micah: the date/time bug has long since been fixed (it's bug 4852615). And I'm afraid that Mozilla is no less crash-prone on Linux than it is on Solaris (believe me...).
