What Advice For a Single Parent As Server Admin?

dd-wrt will do it. A trusting relationship will too. Although, it may be a good way to catalyze production of tech savy kids. They will figure out how to get around it. :D

Scientists Discover Proteins Controlling Evolution

bcn17 This doesn't go against evolution at all (436 comments)

This doesn't go against evolution at all. It simply means that a system has evolved that checks for errors in a very conserved process (the electron transport chain) because if it wasn't conserved then the species would be less fit (less offspring) and die out. It's important to note that evolution is a change in allele frequencies of a population. So this electron transport problem control system is not actively changing allele frequencies. It is simply accounting for problems that arise and letting the organism be fit when it might otherwise not because of some sort of deleterious mutation.
