IF I WERE IN CHARGE OF THE NETWORKS

The phrase sour grapes doe snot refer to jealousy or envy. Nor is it related to being a sore loser. It deals with rationalization of failure to attain a desired end. In the original fable by Aesop, "The Fox and the Grapes," whent he fox realizes he cannot leap high enough to reach the grapes, he rationalizes that even if he had gotten them, they would probably have been sour anyway. Rationalization. That's all sour grapes means. It doesn't deal with jealousy or sore losing. Yeah, I know, you say, "Well, many people are using it that way, so the meaning is changing." And I say, "Well many people are really fuckin' stupid too shall we just adapt all their standards?"

I work at an online computer magazine and today's feature is about the
"history of data storage" -
http://www.networkworld.com/news/2007/061507-storage-history.html?ts0hb=&story=historage

Check out the original first data storage mechanism we have on the
list! Punch Cards to control Textile Looms! :) Now this is a bit out of period for the SCA, but if you look at period card weaving it uses the same principles.

No I did not give them the idea... LOL
