The Slashdot story was in fact posted yesterday, although the URL changed:

100+ comments so far.  Now I'd appreciate some community help in
moderating the comments thread.  As expected, a lot of people
inadvertently posted misleading comments (jumped to conclusions without
reading), which I and (GM) corrected with further comments.  Can our
corrections be modded up such that the truth is more easily seen? :-)

If anyone is curious, we got 4800+ extra website hits from Slashdot so far.
This would be nothing new for JtR (it gets this much and more daily anyway),
but it is significant for Owl.

Thanks again,
