US turns wikileaks into fiasco. Terrorism is dropped.

Yup – instead of just having been embarrassed and pointing out that every country makes the same kind of internal assessments, that these have to be brutally honest internally in order to be effective and then getting on with it, the US is flipping. H Clinton, the mad spying control freak, is now claiming it’s […]

Partial reversal of aging achieved in mice

“When we flipped the telomerase switch on and looked a month later, the brains had largely returned to normal,” said DePinho. More newborn nerve cells were observed, and the fatty myelin sheaths around nerve cells — which had become thinned in the aged animals — increased in diameter. In addition, the increase in telomerase revitalized […]

How Google and MS load so quickly: they cheat on slow start

Basically they’re violating RFC-3390. You’re supposed to check the speed the receiver can handle before sending another packet, and then up your speed if it’s good, or stabilise if it isn’t. What they do is instead of waiting for the return packet confirming or denying the uprate in speed is good (initial window / IW), […]

This is why you need courts to make decisions – taken down with no recourse to law.

Why is this strange? Well, torrent-finder doesn’t host any torrents, or contain a database with the location of torrents – it doesn’t even show any torrents: it shows torrent finding sites in iframes (ie outside of its own site).

Clinical trials at Glasgow Royal Infirmary have shown that the HINS-light Environmental Decontamination System provides significantly greater reductions of bacterial pathogens in the hospital environment than can be achieved by cleaning and disinfection alone, […]

Marijn Ornstein, the manager of security policy at Schiphol airport in Amsterdam, said: “If you look at all the recent terrorist incidents, the bombs were detected because of human intelligence not because of screening … If even […]

Tory councillor arrested over Twitter stoning post

AND if Ireland isn’t crazy enough, England is just as mad – on the same day! Gareth Compton tweeted this: “Can someone please stone Yasmin Alibhai-Brown to death? I shan’t tell Amnesty if you don’t. It would be a blessing, really” And got arrested. For inciting violence. People, what is wrong with the world?! Yasmin […]

How To Directly Tether Your Camera To An iPad

One of the problems of an Ipad is that it doesn’t have a filesystem, which means you can’t copy files directly to it from your camera, so you still need the laptop.
