U.S. Election Day In Progress: What's Been Your Experience?

HebrewToYou Re:CA - took ten minutes to vote (821 comments)

Congrats and well done. I had a similar experience in southern California. My polling place was in my building, one floor below me. I went down around 11 AM and was back in my apartment by 11:05 AM. It helped that I had filled my sample ballot out with my researched selections beforehand.

Android Fork Brings Froyo To 12 Smartphones

HebrewToYou Re:On the myTouch 3g (HTC) Slide (193 comments)

The T-Mobile myTouch 3G Slide is known as the HTC Espresso. I've been running CM6 on mine for weeks now using the nightly builds produced by their build-bot. There are a few outstanding issues on the device that may give you pause, however:

1. Bluetooth audio is nonfunctional for phone calls
2. Wifi connectivity issues arise in certain circumstances
3. The "FN" and "CAPS" lights on the hardware keyboard do not light up when their respective buttons are pressed

Other than that, though, the software is rock solid. I'm even running an overclocked kernel on my Slide, bumping the max processor speed from 600 MHz to 844 MHz without any loss of stability.

What SciFi Should Get the Reboot Treatment Next?

HebrewToYou The Tripods (922 comments)

...although supposedly a movie is in development, slated for a 2012 release. I think a series/mini-series might be a better fit for the subject matter.

The Limits To Skepticism

HebrewToYou It would only be fair... (1093 comments)

...to link to Willis Eschenbach's response in the summary. It appears that The Economist didn't even bother to contact Eschenbach before publishing this article by an apparently unnamed author. That isn't exactly what I would consider high-quality journalism.

Scientists Step Down After CRU Hack Fallout

HebrewToYou Re:Fraud (874 comments)

Climate-gate.org simply appears to be a repository for the leaked documents. I don't believe they've opined on the subject. That's been left to others.

Scientists Step Down After CRU Hack Fallout

HebrewToYou Re:Fraud (874 comments)

Evidence cited by realclimate.org should no longer be considered admissible in this debate. The contributors at that site are not to be trusted. Click the link; read the correspondence of theirs that was leaked. They are not interested in science but rather pushing an agenda.

HebrewToYou Re:Hockey guy? (874 comments)

Realclimate.org is an unreliable source considering their correspondence was included among the leaked emails. Just sayin'...

Scientists Step Down After CRU Hack Fallout

HebrewToYou Re:Fraud (874 comments)

Very few people dispute that the Earth is in a warming period due to recovery from the Little Ice Age. That's not the issue.

One issue is that the proxy data was manipulated in such a way that makes current temperatures appear to be warmer than at any other point in historical times. Another issue is that certain proxies, such as the Tiljander series, were used incorrectly. A third issue is that certain treemometers appear to have been cherry-picked over others in order to provide results that were more sought after. I suggest you research the work done by Steve McIntyre at his blog. New content is being added to this mirror.

HebrewToYou Re:Fraud (874 comments)

Citing realclimate.org doesn't help your cause. Several contributors to that site have been implicated in the leaked emails.

With regards to the content of your post, the data was most certainly manipulated. Have you not taken the time to discover the coding travesty documented in the HARRY_READ_ME file that was leaked along with the emails? Here are a couple good links to start with.

1Mb Broadband Access Becomes Legal Right In Finland

HebrewToYou Re:This is crazy (875 comments)

That allows people to vote with their feet should they not agree with policy they firmly disagree with.

Substitute "disapprove of" with "disagree with" in the above. I need to work on my proofreading...

1Mb Broadband Access Becomes Legal Right In Finland

HebrewToYou Re:This is crazy (875 comments)

Some folks believe that the Federal government is incapable of properly "reforming" health care / health insurance in this country. I would much prefer that each state attempt to tackle reform on their own, much like Massachusetts has done. That allows people to vote with their feet should they not agree with policy they firmly disagree with.

Personally, I think a lot of good would come from simply allowing insurance companies to sell policies across state lines and from common sense tort reform.
