L.A. Wants to End Master and Slave Equipment

I’ve got a project to get out the door before 8:00PM tonight and then I’ve got to pack and head to Chattanooga to be with family for Thanksgiving so I don’t have time for comments on this now but I do want to note it here for a possible later rant. L.A. wants it’s vendors to stop using the terms “Master” and “Slave” to identify equipment.

The request — which has some suppliers furious and others busy re-labeling components — came after an unidentified worker spotted a videotape machine carrying devices labeled “master” and “slave” and filed a discrimination complaint with the county’s Office of Affirmative Action Compliance.

Some folks are just too easily offended.
