rednuhter Re:Wait... (356 comments)

Books and even DVDs cannot be "do-not-rent" if you BUY them. It's the "first sale doctrine" -- you bought it, it's yours! You can lend, rent and sell them, at your hearts will.
In what country/ies ?

UC Berkeley Offering Starcraft Course

rednuhter Re:Starcraft theory... (148 comments)

In tetris, you often have to make complex decisions: getting single lines quickly or more lines later on.

Should you create a 'bad' line (piece does not fit)(to fill in later) or make future shapes less likey to fit.

Interesting uses for a USB LED screen?

rednuhter what make and model are you referring to ? (1 comments)

what make and model are you referring to ? I would be interested to know the cost and availability.

rednuhter (516649) writes "Nature online is reporting scientists have used drugs to selectively remove one memory while unaffecting another. Musical tones were played to the rats and at the same time the subjects were given a mild electric shock. Half the study group were given the drug (not approved for use in humans) and then the experiment was repeated with a new tone. The following day the rats that had not been given the treatment were afraid of both tones while the treated half were only afraid of the second tone, the memory of fear of the first had been erased."
