Retina Implant Company Seeks FDA Trial Approval

frank_carmody As someone with RP... (46 comments)

As someone with RP I welcome this news. As someone that keeps tabs on treatment developments, I imagine that these implants are '10 years away' from being available to me.

Oracle cans commercial OpenOffice

frank_carmody I ditched OO for Google Docs... (2 comments)

As a result of the fallout, I moved to the cloud. The plan was to wait for the dust to settle, for LibreOffice to get accepted into most of the mainstream distros and for the bugs to be ironed out.

But having used Google Docs exclusively for quite a while now, I honestly don't think I'll be switching back to OO/LO. Google Docs does everything I need. I'd encourage people to take a good look at it and perhaps use it exclusively for a while to see if you're missing anything from the 'real' applications.

Rivals Mock Microsoft's 'Native HTML5' Claims

frank_carmody Who are they trying to fool? (211 comments)

When they say stuff like this, what's the point?

Consumers don't know what html5 is and even if they did they wouldn't care. And developers, etc. know what they're saying is lies. So it's a lose-lose type of comment.

I back up personal files...

frank_carmody Re:Nothing is that important... (266 comments)

I'm completely with you, although it took me years to realize what you say is the correct way to think about this problem. Nonetheless, I put my 'cannot lose' stuff into the ol' Dropbox and that's it. Half-yearly I distribute my music library to a a few select locations around the globe. But to be honest, I would be upset for perhaps 30 minutes if it all disappeared.

Apple Asks Security Experts To Examine OS X Lion

frank_carmody rsync (417 comments)

Not specifically security related but does anyone have any idea what version of rsync has shown up in the beta? The version that ships with 10.6 is rather outdated so it'd be great if this (pretty important) tool were brought in line with where rsync is now.

The Animal World Has Its Junkies, Too

frank_carmody Terence McKenna spoke a lot about this (250 comments)

Have a listen to his 'Search for the Original Tree of Knowledge' (tape 4 from memory) for a very nice exposition of the Santa Claus/psychedelic reindeer juxtaposition (e.g. red & white Amanita mushrooms that live under Xmas trees, toy-making elves, Lappland, flying reindeer).
