ID000001 It is a sign (278 comments)

The ability to catch up with technology and protocol is directly proportional to how forward thinking the practice is. You are not going to see a witch doctor with a carefully created and compliance list of potions. Similarly, you are not going to get an HR department to care about technology enough to build a compliance website.

Auction Houses To Be Removed From Diablo III

ID000001 I always thought Auction house is what make Diablo (219 comments)

I always thought Auction house is what make Diablo III relevant and rewarding since the game play focus on being grindy. Now that you can no longer exchange gears for actual money, what is the point? Is the game play itself fun enough?

How Outdated Data Distorts Doctors' Pay

ID000001 Re:So what. Doctors SHOULD be paid more. (336 comments)

> The kind of radiology procedures you talk about are not day-to-day healthcare Radiology procedure is not day to day healthcare? What DO we considers Day to day? mammography is most certainly a routine procedure. Half the population needs it on a yearly bias. > And where they are needed, they can easily be handled by a small, specific IT system, not an all-encompassing IT behemoth. What is the cost benefit of having a small system that only do the routine procedure while the emergency procedure are done on a different system given the whole point of the routine check up is to have something in archive to compare for future reference? And how is a "Small IT System" make any different? What do you even defines as an all-encompassing IT behemoth?

How Outdated Data Distorts Doctors' Pay

ID000001 Re:So what. Doctors SHOULD be paid more. (336 comments)

I would have to say no. One example, Radiology system are critical to patient healthcare. Large amount of diagnostic, specially on life threatening illness or injuries, require the use of Radiology system. The advance in Radiology technology is crucial to the delivery of health and procedure. You can't really flips thousands of images physically for a case, with potentially another thousands of priors study that are required to load and reference. Storing physical photograph media are incredibly expensive compare to storing images digitally in hard drive. IF anything. IT in this area saves the Hospital money. They don't need to hire someone to physically sort and organizes film, don't need someone to bring it to the room. Don't need someone to manages the film and flips them for the radiologist. Don't need to copy them and deliver them off site for backup. Don't need a dedicated and incredibly expensive film printer to bring to the emergency room or give to the out patient for transfer. You can just send them across the WAN, and All they need now is an IT who look after a few SANS with consumer replaceable parts. The HIS is another. It saves the hospital money in much the same manner. Paper trail workflow are no longer needed. You don't need to expose every patient information to all staff in a binder, all they need is press a button and let the actual Doctor with the correct permission to view the data. You also don't need to store those information in paper form. Doctor don't need to waste time reading through all of them when a few keyword will produces history and allergy record or other issues. You don't need to hire people to mail or personal deliver those across campus. In fact. IT made specialized clinic possible due to the ease of moving data. Without them being digital, there are no way you can have specialized clinic that are focused on one thing. The overhead of transferring patient information would be far too great for them to handle being a small clinic. You have to be incredibly out of touch regarding to Healthcare to think IT contribute little. IT is what made modern healthcare possible.

Oracle Sues Google For Infringing Java Patents

ID000001 Re:IMHO... (510 comments)

The reason they are not paying oracle license is because they are not using any Sun's Java implementation. They just use the syntax, not the VM and the complier.

A bit of a wishful thinking here, plus, what you say is just speculation. I'm sure people wish you are right, but there are nothing to discuss when we have no way to confirm such a hypnosis.

Apple Tablet Rumor Wrap Up

ID000001 Re:Apple's strategy (348 comments)

I think using a LED / LCD screen for book reading is going to put a little more strain on the eyes then e-ink display. Which might make it not suitable for a good amount of people. If being doubled as e-reader is the major selling point, this is likely to be too expensive to count. Of course, Apple have a few years to let this go. We will see.

Gran Turismo Gamer Becomes Pro Race Driver

ID000001 Re:correlation is not causation (249 comments)

That is really untrue. Numbers of racer have made improvement in real life racing skill due to playing video games. The one I remember was when GT2 first came out, a couple of pro racer took a shot at it in Laguna Seca. They notices their mistake a little easier due to replay and new preceptive. And made improvement in real life from those video game experience

Can't find the references right now, but I can tell you stimulation will definitely help. Saying they don't do jack shit because they are missing some element from real life is a bit on the ignorance side.

Drupal 6 Social Networking

ID000001 Re:I love Drupal (122 comments)

Drupal have multiple website capability since a while ago. They login to each site and sign up to them individually, but having the login works for all of them is an option. They are intended to be completely separated with their own database, just sharing the same code. However they can communicates if you really need them to. It is on installation, but many websites.

Android Modder Tries To Outmaneuver Google

ID000001 Re:Interesting (152 comments)

This is going too far

by your definition, not only is there no such thing as IP, there are also no such thing as law since law are just "lawmaker scribbing down some common consensus on a piece of paper".

Why don't you just say "IP is not a physical object" instead? So your statement actually, you know, makes sense.

Your problem is that you think all laws are just made up by some entitles with power.

Choosing Better-Quality JPEG Images With Software?

ID000001 Is there a way to find out the compression engine? (291 comments)

Does JPEG header have the compression method listed as well as compression ratio? If not, is there any way to figure out what kinda compresison engine is used base on how an image is constructed?

If so, simply do some testing against some of the most popular compression engine base on the artifact to determines what engine is used, then find out their compression ratio (perhaps a simple files size might work?). Then simply pick the images with the best quality base on engine used and ratio?

If you have been in IT in Radiology, you should know there are no open source PACs, HIS, RIS, ER, etc etc.

Nor are there any opensource dictation system. Good luck getting a Radiologist to type their own report.

Google Buys ReCAPTCHA to Boost Book Scanning Effor

ID000001 (753578) writes "From the Article: ReCAPTCHA is a well-known provider of CAPTCHA technology, which is used to prevent spammers from using computers to automatically register for online services, such as webmail accounts and Web site registrations

What attracted Google to ReCAPTCHA is that the company has linked its core authentication service with efforts to digitize print books and periodicals. The search giant has a massive effort underway in that area for its Google Books and Google News Archive services."
