Mystery Signal Could Be Dark Matter Hint In ISS Detector
Anyone who uses "phenomena" in the singular just can't be trusted.
Researchers Print Electronic Memory On Paper
50 micron dot + 25 micron separation = 75 microns per bit, not 100.

Ask Slashdot: What Do You Consider Elegant Code?
Maybe a bit longer that you want, but the UNIX 6th Edition source code, as presented in John Lions' commentary book is excellent reading. Clean, functional code with some well-documented "wow" moments.

How Engineers and Scientists Cluster In the U.S.
The obvious conclusion is that people tend to cluster around scientists and engineers - they follow us wherever we go. Fear our Pied Piper powers!

That D&D weapon always had us curious.
Julian Assange Pans WikiLeaks Movie
On one flight I had the misfortune to watch the atrocious remake of The Italian Job. Paramount spent a significant amount of that film bashing Napster and Shawn Fanning.
Bloggers Put Scientific Method To the Test
Drug companies often find that biological science from academia cannot be reproduced (or is much less robust than indicated. Amgen and Bayer have both published on this topic, and when they called the researchers to ask why, they were told that the bettter results had been picked for the publication. Reuters article
NASA Prepares Probes For Suicide Mission
Plus they are doing it at the behest of their evil human overlords, so this is MURDER, rather than "suicide". ...but "NASA murders their worker [robots]" probably isn't the kind of headline they'd like.
Ask Slashdot: What Books Have Had a Significant Impact On Your Life?
Promoted "only" four times in 12 years?! Yikes! In my industry (biotech) that would be extremely rare. I am jealous.

Matt Groening Reveals Springfield Is In His Home State of Oregon
In one of the episodes, which featured a biography of the family, they are described explicitly as a north Kentucky family. As evidence you'll see Shelbyville, KY http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=Shelbyville,+KY just north of Springfield http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=Springfield,+KY and there's even a place called Simpsonville http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=Simpsonville,+KY just west of Shelbyville. I have no idea why they want to change their story now.
Alan Moore on V For Vendetta and the Rise of Anonymous
Every time I look at him he reminds me of the creepy Burger King king mascot. Hmm.. I see that Burger King actually retired him at about the same time Occupy started. Coincidence? I don't think so.
Ubisoft Has Windows-Style Hardware-Based DRM For Games
Not bullshit. I had a Dell/Alienware PC with WinXP suffer motherboard failure. I replaced the board with the OEM version (almost identical format). No other hardware was changed. A call to Microsoft resulted in them telling me (politely) that a motherboard switch wasn't allowed. If you search their website there's actually an early illustration for the product (re)activation process where they use a motherboard replacement as an example. When I pointed this out to the telephone support people I was told that this was "out of date" and not official policy. Please buy a copy of Vista...

The only reason for the discrepancy is that you have been using the wrong kind of cables. You need to use these instead:

Woman Develops Peanut Allergy After Lung Transplant
Most immunosuppressant drugs block cell-mediated immunity, and so attempt to prevent cytotoxic T-cell killing of the donor lung tissue. Unfortunately the lung tissue will also contain a large number of the donor's immune cells (mast cells, macrophages and any eosinophils that are in the tissues). It is acute triggering of these cells, and release of bronchoconstricing mediators, that results in anaphylaxis. These are relatively long lived cells so the graft-mediated peanut sensitivity will take a long time to decline.
Immunosuppressants *should* block Graft-versus-Host reactions as those are primarily cell-mediated.
For taking notes by hand, I prefer ...
Hence, whiteboards, paper towels, cardboard boxes and the lab gloves I am wearing see common use as writing substrates for taking notes. My favourite method is writing on the benchtop (probably melamine resin) with a soft pencil. When in the office I am a big fan of wide-ruled yellow writing pads. Since I am the only one who uses them around here I find them easy to spot when things get cluttered. For lecture notes, a 5 x 7 spiral bound (with a BIG spiral on the long edge dammit) notebook with a firm cover. Blue pens. My handwriting has deteriorated so now it resembles my EEG, so I endorse other postings recommending fountain pens for legibility to others. I am very pleased how much better biro-like pens have become over the last three decades (currently I am a VelocityGel addict).
