This is a grey topic, but also close to a comedy bit. Basically what happened is a group uncovered the magic HD-DVD number, that unlocks all HD-DVDs. That in itself isn’t groundbreaking news, but the blogging and web community lighting up on digg for temporarily removing all submissions about it was.
Rudd-O posted a 17 page epic event documenting the strain his server took on “HD-DVD Night”. Topping it all off with being /. which forced him to manage the site by the minute.
The story hasn’t lost steam either, in fact I am sure it is only the beginning.. only time will tell. I leave you with this note:
