I just renewed my ACM membership online. Slowly. R e a l l y s l o w l y.
How a simple business web site can get by with 10 second response time for a fixed transaction is beyond me. Even the site you're reading, hosted on a 1998 era 350 MHz Pentium II, has faster response time when posting updates to this blog or the Summerhill Kitten Farm. (Those are the slowest operations I demand of it.) And I'm upgrading the machine before the end of the year.
Maybe I should donate the PII to the ACM when I retire it so they can do an upgrade?
