Ebola Has Made It To the United States

Grow Old Timber Re:Fristy Pawst! (68 comments)

"healthcare infrastructure" you are talking about non-stop commercials for Viagra and lipitor and $1000s a month programs for who knows what?. Some healthcare. Since when does taking care of ones self mean watching needless commercials? NEVER. Get up of your diabetic ass and move around some. Ebola was here last month when they isolated the virus from the "volunteers" for U.S. pharma and corps to profit from remember? .

IBM Solar Concentrator Can Produce12kW/day, Clean Water, and AC

Grow Old Timber Re:were not running out of oil yet BUT (268 comments)

The cost of fossil fuel will go higher due to secret trade agreements not to disclose who is actually buying the oil @ $100.00 plus a barrel Twice the cost of what the analysts say it should be. We can figure out where the biggest drain on the economy is. And what wars are the oil companies helping to fight? I say let's try any new energy system even if the petroleum CEOs don't like it.

US Strikes ISIL Targets In Syria

Grow Old Timber Re:I'll just let my sig do the talking (475 comments)

DoD jobs are good money gone bad. . We should understand these Air attacks are for getting the oil fields BACK in our glorious oil companies hands. Ever notice how the real agenda gets shoved under the rug? When the government says "destroying the terrorists source of revenue" Guess what that is? Damn idiots will argue about everything else but the truth. IF the oil companies want "their oil back" let 'em hire a bunch of veterans like Blackwater did, that are capable of kicking some jihadii ass. Oh wait maybe they are the "advisers" nevermind...

Massive Study Searching For Genes Behind Intelligence Finds Little

Grow Old Timber It's survival of the smartest fast foward eons. (269 comments)

Where did the Neanderthal go? Absorbed. How did our brains evolve over apes? Dietary change from our migration no doubt. Hell maybe the sun altered some DNA passed down through the ages. Let's hope it doesn't reverse the trend. We haven't seen everything the sun is capable of. yet.

Comcast Using JavaScript Injection To Serve Ads On Public Wi-Fi Hotspots

Grow Old Timber Re:Terms and Conditions (230 comments)

And AFAIK the article I read about the free wi-fi is ONLY for other comcast users that have similar devices enabled in their home spaces. Not everyone gets to use the Comcast "free" WiFi. Comcast put it this way to encourage customers to become part of their WiFi system. "Where ever you go you can get free WiFi from other Comcast user participants" (A paraphrase). Like one guy here said use your own router DON"T LEASE. please...

New US Airstrikes In Iraq Intended to Protect Important Dam

Grow Old Timber Re:US policy: first arm them then bomb (215 comments)

All this talk of "dams' is really about the other energy, OIL. Notice there is NO mention of the oil supply being threatened? The crude supply "we" discovered? That brought about the "Sunni Awakening" When we let them know the tribal leaders could receive profits (or not) That is what got them on "our side" initially. Not the "surge" as the right wingers claimed. Watch how little is mentioned of the Oil supply we fought the war for (our beloved oil execs) The news will be filled with attacks defending just all the other energy sources. SAD SAD SAD and obvious as hell.

Old Doesn't Have To Mean Ugly: Squeezing Better Graphics From Classic Consoles

Grow Old Timber A Win98SE console ROCKS! (167 comments)

Was anxious to use all those cracked programs from the 90s. Rigged up a Win98 machine and what a blast from the past! Sure the drivers can be a pain to hunt down but everything works like it used to. Simple Fast and Free with all the stuff I kept on file. Audio editors MIDI editors, wav recorders etc. The hardest part was finding equip (CPUs and chipsets) that work in the 98 realm.

FCC Warned Not To Take Actions a Republican-Led FCC Would Dislike

Grow Old Timber Re:By that logic... (338 comments)

Don't do anything that will upset the stock price of the telco internet companies. We know how much they are wringing out of us MONTHLY. Pay no attention to the ads on TV about passing legislation limiting FREE TV. It's just the telco companies saying they don't want to have to pay a fee for content they are using.. I say let the bastards pay for free TV. We know how much they are making EVERY FUCKING MONTH!

Buckyballs and Diamonoids used to create molecular diodes

Grow Old Timber Grow Old Timber writes  |  about three weeks ago

Grow Old Timber (1071718) writes "Scientists working at the Stanford Institute for Materials and Energy Sciences (SIMES) claim to have created a molecule-sized electronic component just a few nanometers long that conducts electricity in only the one direction. In essence, a rectifier diode, but one so small that it may one day help replace much bulkier diodes and other semiconductors found on today's integrated circuits to produce incredibly compact, super-fast electronic devices."

Will Microsoft deliver service pack 4 for XP before the deadline?

Grow Old Timber Grow Old Timber writes  |  about 7 months ago

Grow Old Timber (1071718) writes "Would they go through the expense to do a final service pack before the end of the the support date in an effort to keep the systems around and from switching to another OS, like Linux?
If they are going to offer some sort of paid support, wouldn't it be smart to get as many people on board before? The reason I ask is; I am tried of the endless updates Win7 has to go through every time I log on and off. XP just works better. Until Win9 makes a debut..."
