Hospitals Begin Data-Mining Patients
It might not happen very often but when I call my son's doctor and leave a message he will call me back at the end of the day every time. It is always him and not his secretary. That is one of the thing I really like about him.
New Approach To Immersion Cooling Powers HPC In a High Rise
Looking at the video the cpu and power supply fans are still attached and spinning. How does this affect the life of the fans as the are pushing around a liquid instead of just air? Do the fans do much as all the components are in the liquid?
Does anyone know more about this?
How Blockbuster Could Have Owned Netflix
This reminds me of an old Monty Python clip where a couple guys are pushing a cart and asking people to bring out their dead. A guy comes out and is carrying a guy on his shoulder and says this guy is dead but the guy on his should replied I am not dead.
New Pope Selected
Does anyone know why they don't go by their real name?

Most people in the USA have duplicate first+last name....if you live in US, put your name here: http://howmanyofme.com/ Only 3 people have my first + last name
Does anyone know of a site like this for other countries? I live in canada and just wanted to check it out.
Just for the heck of it I entered my name into the site above and it came back as 1 or fewer with my first and last name.
Carmack Addresses FPS Creativity Concerns
Most indie games seem to take one approach or the other, either be a clone, or be completely different than anything else (or a clone with a *twist*! that might as well be a clone).
What kind of game do you want that isn't a clone and not something completely different than anything else? What does that leave you?
The Science of Lightsabers
There is an app for that. Lucasfilm released it for the iphone.

Can You Beat a Computer At Rock-Paper-Scissors?
I prefer rock paper scissors lizard spock myself.
The Death of BCC
I wish people would use BCC when sending an email to a bunch of people they don't know. It also helps to not advertise everyone's email address.
A co-worker got an email , I think it was just a joke or something from someone that she knows and it had a lot of people in the to field. Not too long after she received that email she got another mesage from someone else that must have been in the list saying thanks for everyone's email address. So now a spammer got a hold of all these people's active email addresses.
It's also a pain when people forward these type of messages and leave everyone elses addresses that received this message prior.

If anyone is interested here is another video of the same crash but this one shows different angles including what is going on inside the cars and what the drivers are going through.

Dell Says High Linux Netbook Returns a "Non-Issue"
if anyone hasn't noticed, Apple and Microsoft have been playing very nice together since last year.
Can anyone explain to me why MS has been playing nice with Apple but not with Linux? I have never understood why they are doing that but they try so hard to stop Linux adoption. Mac's are the ones putting the bigger dent in their desktop marketshare. You would think they wouldn't be releasing Office and other things on that platform to keep people from switching away and decreasing their markethare even more.
Project OXCART Declassified From Area 51
So it looks like a good old fashion book burning is in order! Unfortunately, it's a website.
How about a good old fashioned slashdoting to take down the sever that the article is on? The server might go up in flames.
Do Video Games Cost Too Much?
Also, the ability to return a game that I do not like.
Isn't that the point of renting games from places like Blockbuster or some other place so you can try them before you buy them? I'm also thinking Blokcbuster had (has?) a policy where if you rent a game and you do like it you can keep the game and pay the rest of the purchase price if you want to buy it.
Firefox Faster In Wine Than Native
Don't bother replying to this guy. He posted the exact same comment in the post-beta windows 7 leak story that was posted.
We get it you don't like linux. Just go away.
