BSODly errors trying to read Linus Torvalds

The Borg Trying to follow a link to Linus Torvalds' railing against subversion, the irony of getting this error heightens the humor:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005'

[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Transaction (Process ID 134) was deadlocked on lock resources with another process and has been chosen as the deadlock victim. Rerun the transaction.

/efytimes/lefthome.asp, line 193 
Sure, database problems happen regardless of the enabling technology, Microsoft is not unique to this. However, I seem to run into completely fubarred application degradation like this (essentially a BSOD on the web) far more often with ASP and .Net based sites than those enabled by other technologies. Of course, any site architected to require a database transaction to serve a content page (without any user data transaction) is a firing offense any place I'll ever work.
