Involuntary Eye Movement May Provide Definitive Diagnosis of ADHD

robsku Re: inb4 (200 comments)

It's because such tests are costly and unconvient for diagnosing when (proper even) diagnosis can cheap and easily proven via neuropsychiatrics. Also diagnose this way might diagnose multiple other possible diagnosis. The neurophysical reasons
were found in testing difference between "normal" and ADHD people, it's not necessarily fit for diagnosing ADHD.

Windows 8.1 Update Crippling PCs With BSOD, Microsoft Suggests You Roll Back

robsku Re: For some it was just a plain black screen (304 comments)

I can haz games fine on linux too - especially as there's a well knows FOSS software to provide Windows API for, and run large set of Windows applications. Sure, I can't get every/any game to work, but I consider myself a hardcore gamer and yet don' need to have all of them. There's way more good games that work on it for me to ever play all of them. And I've run linux almost extensively since 02 - when I switched I first thought I'd keep windows as dual boot for games, but after 2 weeks in linhx I never went back.

Linux has worked fine for most peoples needs on desktop for ages. I dont see much additional benefit for it from android, which is really for mobile devices, or Chrome OS, which is mostly good for lightweight netbooks.

People just need to get over whatever it is keeping them for believing it don't work on desktops. Please, no quoting ones special needs cases as rebbutals.

Involuntary Eye Movement May Provide Definitive Diagnosis of ADHD

robsku Re:I would be very interested... (200 comments)

That was a joke - hell, I even put a smiley there for morons and simpletons to get it right, but such efforts are often futile as we all know. English is not my native language but I've never had ADHD related problems in learning it - as said, it was a flaming obvious joke.

You can reply but don't expect an answer after this. I've no desire to argue with anti-vaccination, AGW denialism promoting useless science ignorant masses of morons.

Involuntary Eye Movement May Provide Definitive Diagnosis of ADHD

robsku Re:I would be very interested... (200 comments)

This post, unlike the ones just simply in denial of the whole AD(H)D existing at all, is hardly something I would disagree with :) You make very good points and present them clearly and politely (more so than I'm capable at times).

Also, I am concerned of misdiagnosis and over subscribing of stimulants (especially for children) that is rampant in some countries (USA being one such place as far as I've come to understand). It's not only damaging to those who are being misdiagnosed but in the long run it may well damage AD(H)D people who find themselves not being able to get treatment easily...

...which is often the case where I live. It's not easy to get an AH(H)D diagnosis and stimulant treatment here in Finland. While we have, generally speaking, a quite good public healthcare system here, I know from my own experience and from what I've heard of other adult AD(H)D people and parents of AD(H)D children, it can sometimes be a real fight to even get you in waiting line to be tested for AD(H)D. I fought from 2003 to 2006 to get there and got diagnosed in 2007 (at age of 27). Still I do think it's better this way than if it were "too easy" to get diagnosis (I'm referring to misdiagnosis problem) - but there's always room for improvement :)

Google Brings Chrome OS User Management To Chrome

robsku Re:Just stop already (68 comments)

You're suggesting VIRTUAL MACHINES as solution for his problems!? Talk about using dynamite to catch a couple of fishes... And the person you're replying to, he needs to learn reading - TFA is about Chrome OS, not Chrome The Browser running in Windows or whatever other OS. Both of you are stupid.

Involuntary Eye Movement May Provide Definitive Diagnosis of ADHD

robsku Re:100 percent bullshit (200 comments)

There is no "massive change" in percentage of people with ADD/ADHD though, it just was previously not understood. I can sympathesize with you though as you come from diseased culture where over- and mis- diagnosing AD(H)D is the norm (wtf is that shit about "pat close attention..." about? That has nothing to do with methods of diagnosing ADD or ADHD in civilized societies) and adults that are lazy fsck's who do happily accept drugs as substitute for parenting to escape their responsibilities. Sad as it is, your diseased culture (and I make no claims that I live in perfect one) doesn't mean ADD and ADHD are fake diseased - they are very well known and studied. It used to be that people with (real) AD(H)D were diagnosed with MBD, a very general and broad diagnose which covered many back then not understood medical conditions - yet the percentage of people diagnosed with MBD was way way way lower than the percent diagnosed with ADD/ADHD *IN USA* today. The rest of the world is different though.

Also, AD(H)D is not just "kid thing" - I was diagnosed with ADHD at age of 26 (and year 2006).
