While at the symposium I walked by Clayton Cramer who was discussing a piece of government software he had been privy to the workings of. The word "glitch" was used, along with several others which made the crash of the Hindenburg sound like a bumpy landing at DIA. Maybe I'll find out what it was. If so I'll update this post.
Meantime Drudge is using the word "glitch" in reference to a nationwide shutdown of the EBT card system. Seems they were running a routine test on it and the software flunked. Big time. Strip clubs, liquor stores and used car lots everywhere report crashing sales. Oh the humanity.
