miller701 Re:not irrational (384 comments)

Not entirely true, caught early enough and given proper hydration, ebola has a much less devastating death rate.

Ebola Does Not Require an "Ebola Czar," Nor Calling Up the National Guard

miller701 Re:Having a Surgeon General would help (384 comments)

Carmona is a Democrat, just because he worked for Bush 43 doesn't make him partisan.

From the arguments he made on CSPAN Murthy's not ready at this time.

HP Is Planning To Split Into Two Separate Businesses, Sources Say

miller701 Re:Hp rack rails (118 comments)

I prefer them to the Dell style rails where you have to drop the servers in to the extended rails vertically (the server remains horizontal).

Got it? Got it? Oops, CRASH!!

  It hasn't been a problem yet, but every time we set one up, it's really nerve wracking.

Report: Microsoft To Buy Minecraft Studio For $2bn+

miller701 This is fun .. (368 comments)

I saw this headline last night and my son (Minecraft fan). He said "Wow, so Google is buying Minecraft?"
"No, not Google, Microsoft"
"Well, who are they?"

We've been an Apple/Mac house since before he was born, so I guess I'm going to have to put in terms he'll understand

Radioactive Wild Boars Still Roaming the Forests of Germany

miller701 Prevailing winds? (212 comments)

Wouldn't the prevailing winds (west to east as far as I know) in Saxony have inhibited the drift of radiation from Chernobyl? Dresden for example is over 700 miles East of Chernobyl.

GM Names and Fires Engineers Involved In Faulty Ignition Switch

miller701 Re:My favorite part... (307 comments)

This has been my viewpoint, it (defects/#cars sold) must be staggeringly low. That said, I would guess there must also be a lot of non-reported incidents too. Hopefully, big corporations have statisticians/data mining to look into that sort of thing.

When I heard I heard the engineer/designer changed the device without changing the part number (part#12253-1, part#12253a, etc), I said to myself that it's very unlikely the non-changing part number was mandated from above. It sounds like someone covering his/her butt.

Some Users Find Swype Keyboard App Makes 4000+ Location Requests Per Day

miller701 Bad Design? (191 comments)

Why doesn't the OS keep track it it's moving of not (all those wonderful sensors) and then have the app ask the OS for the location? If it's sitting on my desk, it shouldn't need to check it's location every 24 seconds.

I think you're missing a big point. In Darmok their language doesn't even have a concept for "You" or "are"
