Everyone is rushing to Spreadfirefox.com today to participate in a possibly record-setting waste of server-side bandwidth by downloading millions of copies of the same file at the same time, and guess what: The server is down. Isn't there some kind of technology that is supposed to help with problems like these? Can't remember the name right now ...

In any event, this seems to be a good occasion to note that the Mozilla-based open source media player Songbird officially reached version 0.6 this weekend. Songbird founder Rob Lord told this blog a while ago that he thinks his little player will eventually be more disruptive than Firefox. Granted, Songbird might never set a Guinness World Record, but at least you can download it right away.
