Why Women Have No Time For Wikipedia

Actually it hurt my eyes. All of that bold type and close line spacing makes it unreadable.

13-Year-Old Finds Fungus Deadly To AIDS Patients Growing On Trees

oldmac31310 Re:13 year old (134 comments)

So the trees are deadly, not the fungus? Hmm...interesting twist to the story. Why not: aids patients find deadly trees growing on 13-year-old. That would be something of a scientic marvel.

Would Scottish Independence Mean the End of UK's Nuclear Arsenal?

oldmac31310 Re:Does it really matter ? (375 comments)

Why have you omitted Israel from your list of nuclear powers? And why have you included Iran which does not as yet possess such weapons?

Would Scottish Independence Mean the End of UK's Nuclear Arsenal?

oldmac31310 Re:Actually, it does ! (375 comments)

I don't know why you have been modded as flamebait. I applaud Scotland's will to be free. As an Irish guy living in the US, I'm cheering you on. If the Scots want to be nuke free - move them to England. The problem is they have been sweeping the issue under the carpet and have no contingency plan for relocating the arsenal. The implication being that they really do not believe that Scottish independence will happen. I dearly hope they are mistaken and get a nice surprise on September.

Google Receives Takedown Request Every 8 Milliseconds

oldmac31310 Re:Faulty logic (155 comments)

Well, with GoDaddy's reputation, I would never use them. Not suggesting that you waste money at all. Free hosting could allow you to maintain the relevant documentation of the issue without any need to pay the villains!

Google Receives Takedown Request Every 8 Milliseconds

oldmac31310 Re:Faulty logic (155 comments)

But to me it seems reasonable to maintain documentation of an issue - even if it is resolved - with the intent that they don't do the same thing to someone else. But, OK, your call of course. Just curious.

oldmac31310 Re:Shall we play a game? (274 comments)

I am rather unsophisticated and tend to like old crap, so I might just like it! I also like how years later a lot of films say so much more about the time they were made than was obvious at time of release. Even if they weren't even trying to 'say' anything.

oldmac31310 Re:Let us redefine "progress" (108 comments)

Mmm. This has been possible for many years. Pre-fabricated houses, buildings etc. There is no need for a printer. Just pour the damn parts into moulds. Now where's my buggy whip and red flag?

Why did you take the site down? Am I misunderstanding this? Did you voluntarily capitulate? If they were doing something wrong and you were bringing it to light, then why take it down?

nope. OS X on a 26" iMac screen, Chrome. Just looks like that. The bold type in the teal bar is the culprit. In fact all instances of the letter i look like l.

Judging by the IMDB entry it has to be a crap film, yet, I am intrigued and will try to find it. Thanks for the tip.

oldmac31310 No board games? (274 comments)

I recently made a board game with my kids. The actual making of the game, the design, concepts etc. were as much fun (perhaps more so) than actually play testing the game. Another unintended consequence of doing this as an amateur is finding out as we played, how ridiculous some of the ideas turned out to be. As it is self made it can be revised constantly so all of the bugs can theoretically be ironed out. But being a board game most of the game play is left to the throw of the die and probably wouldn't interest most people on here. Great fun though.

Psyco Ex blog takedown

oldmac31310 oldmac31310 writes  |  about 3 years ago

oldmac31310 (1845668) writes "Surely it is wrong that this judge ordered the removal of the site. It is interesting that Morelli so easily complied. But don't be bamboozled by the negative bias of the NBC video and all of the other smoke and hidden mirrors. This site http://www.thepsychoexwife.com/ (now a legal fund link) was doing some good work particularly in the form of the forum (still up) for both men and women — and indeed children (think of the children). What is troubling is that though the blog was run anonymously, we know the names of the people involved. Why? The media? Of interest I hope to /. readers. This blog should stand. Judge Gibbons, eat dirt."
