Slashdot doesn't know good stories...

even if it bit them in the butt. First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR! Anyhow, I was browsing through Google News and stumbled upon this article and thought it was worthy a Slashdot submission, as opposed to just my blog :). The bottom of the article mentioned an expedition team from Johns Hopkins going to Egypt and posting their work to a blog with digital pics on their website. That's some cool stuff right? I mean how often do you get daily news of an archaeological site (at an ancient temple in Luxor, Egypt no less). Well, my track record at slashdot has been poor. I've had 13 submissions rejected and only 3 accepted (if anyone out there has better numbers, either way, please let me know. I'd like to know if I'm an average guy or just someone who has no eye for catchy news).
