I Name My Servers After:
I ran a DNA synthesis lab for years. Had 4 computers hooked up to oligo synthesizers. I named them Adenine, Cytosine, Guanine, Thymine. My boss hated it, could never figure out which one was which, even tho they had a huge letter written on the front of each one.
All the other ones were functional. HPLC for the HPLC machine, etc.
The Pirate Party of Canada Is Official
Another Canadian political party siphoning off left-leaning voters.
Hey! I consider myself a small-c conservative, but I mostly support the ideas of the pirate party. Don't think they're just a bunch of lefties. Freedom isn't factional. I think the problem is we don't separate people's political/economic views from their social views. I believe that socialism belongs in..well... society. People should take care of each other, because they want to, because they think it's right, or whatever. But government should be more conservative. And I think there are many more like me.
I'm really tired of this right vs left thing, and whether an idea or policy is right wing or left wing.
You can believe in social socialism and political conservatism and economic liberalism without being inconsistent.
A real conservative would believe in staying the hell out of the whole copyright mess anyways. And a real socialist would believe in legislating everything. So how did this get turned around?
I just wish there was a conservative party to vote for that wasn't socially conservative.
NASA WISE Satellite Blasts Into Space
um, I hope that isn't what it's supposed to do, because if it's an active IR system, it's gonna be waiting billions of years to get a return signal.
I think what you mean is it'll be detecting the IR that is already out there.
Of Encrypted Hard Drives and "Evil Maids"
The best security is to pick an obscure poison. Take it in small doses until you're immune. Coat the keyboard with it. Better yet, get a keyboard that automatically dispenses the poison.
Evil maid now equals dead maid.
My only problem is, now that the maid is dead, who's gonna hide the body?
Piston-Powered Nuclear Fusion
Wow, you're too bitter to be a Canadian by birth, and you didn't apologize once. So..er.. where you from originally?
New Pattern Found In Prime Numbers
The ending of a number in binary indicates its oddness. 2 (0b10) is the only prime that ends in zero in binary.
which would make it very odd indeed.
Pirate Bay Trial Ends In Jail Sentences
Search in google "filetype:torrent Wolverine" and see what it gets you.
why would I do that? I already got it weeks ago off the Pirate Bay.
Rare Venomous Mammal Filmed
It can inject passing prey with a venom-loaded bite
this nocturnal, insect-eating animal
must be pretty small teeth to be able to inject insects with a poison.
Software Quality In a Non-Software Company?
If you are in the bio tech field then all of your processes need to conform to ISO13485. T
This is for medical devices. There is lots of biotech that is outside this area. I work designing DNA synthesizers, and they are not covered by this at all. There are ISO standards they may want to meet, but this may not be one of them.
