Cell Transplant Allows Paralyzed Man To Walk

Barsteward Re:NOT UK BUT POLAND (161 comments)

Here is a precise of the links:

Prof Geoff Raisman, of UCL, has spent his career pursuing the dream of spinal cord regeneration. Nearly 30 years ago he showed that nerve cells in the lining of the nose constantly renew themselves. In animal studies, he demonstrated that paralysis in rats could be reversed by a transplant of specialist cells known as olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs).
Dr Pawel Tabakow heads the Polish team of scientists in Wroclaw responsible for making the leap from animal research to humans. As a medical student, he had been inspired by Prof Raisman's work.

Cell Transplant Allows Paralyzed Man To Walk

Barsteward Re:I'm still waiting... (161 comments)

oh jeez, is that the best put down you can think of? its been done millions of times, try something original. in the mean time, stick your fetid cock in a vice and tighten it up as much as it can go, i'm sure "I kan read" will tighten it for you

Cell Transplant Allows Paralyzed Man To Walk

Barsteward Re:I'm still waiting... (161 comments)

Embryonic stem cells are derived from embryos that develop from eggs that have been fertilized in vitro—in an in vitro fertilization clinic (i.e. in a laboratory)—and then donated for research purposes with informed consent of the donors. They are not derived from eggs fertilized in a woman's body. I've love to see that embryo develop into life in a dish when its mixed with mouse cells.

"Or that there are no known bugs to fix and haven't been in ages" - is that a hope? try google "bugs in sysvinit"

My "desktop works faster" is not just about systemd, it can be any bit of software/config that makes it faster (as long as it doesn't break)

Debian's Systemd Adoption Inspires Threat of Fork

Barsteward Re:A rather empty threat (549 comments)

that means, as explained previously, that all bugs in SysVinit components are fixed in different distributions so there is no longer one definitive SysVinit version. I can't see that as being a good idea or acceptable.

Barsteward Re:Too late (549 comments)

not sure about that. most of the crap seems to be due with political issues with the developers. anyway most software has bugs at some point or another, its a fact of software life.

Debian's Systemd Adoption Inspires Threat of Fork

Barsteward Re:UNIX Philosophy (549 comments)

"mainly because of the binary log files" - i believe there is a config option to forward log message to rsyslog - here's a cut from an Arch discussion

"This changelog says that:
* journald will no longer forward all local data to another running syslog daemon. This change has been made because rsyslog (which appears to be the most commonly used syslog implementation these days) no longer makes use of this, and instead pulls the data out of the journal on its own. Since forwarding the messages to a non-existent syslog server is more expensive than we assumed we have now turned this off. If you run a syslog server that is not a recent rsyslog version, you have to turn this option on again (ForwardToSyslog= in journald.conf)."

Does this help with your problem with the binary log issue?
