Cuadrilla drilling company in UK has admitted publicly the link between fracking and earthquakes. The said this in 2011

"It is highly probable that the hydraulic fracturing of Cuadrilla's Preese Hall-1 well did trigger a number of minor seismic events

This, according to a Reuters report here: http://www.reuters.com/article...

Other articles have reported various studies connecting fracking in Oklahoma with the new earthquakes flurries there and elsewhere in the US. Like Ohio: .http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/11/ohio-earthquakes-fracking_n_5136110.html

I just checked and you're right about the kernel being in the 2-series, 2.2.x. Thanks for that; apparently it wasn't the change to the 2-series kernel that caused the incompatibilites, but to the 2.4- versions from 2.2.

I was right about the libraries, though.

IIRC Debian 3 was released about the same time as RH 7, which makes using anything Corel doubtful.

You've got mix of incompatible requirements here. IIRC Corel's support for L:inux ended with the introduction of libc6 and kernels in the 2.0 series. These linux binaries will not run on Debian-3, which had both. I know, I tried to keep WordPerfect for Linux going on RH-6.2 till about the time Debian-3 was introduced but it became a losing proposition.

Worse still, source code for Linux-kernel series 1.x will not usually compile on later kernels which require an incompatible libc.

YMMV

|(T)he US is particularly keen on boosting cross-border data flow, which would allow uninhibited exchange of personal and financial data.|

Perhaps the traffic between nodes will give the NSA some useful information about people's transactions to "Keep us safe." Or the US IRS about offshore deposits?

This flies in the face of current theory, which says infants flush "excess" synapses and children continue to do so on a lesser scale for years. See

Huttenlocher P. Neural Plasticity: The Effects of the Environment on the Development of the Cerebral Cortex. Harvard University Press; 2002.

Or any decent Google search will support this.

Unless a lchemical ink can be shown in the chemistry resultant from the anaesthesia which might cause the synapses to morph, it will be very hard to "prove" this hypothesis.

Correlation does not prove causation.

If I want your opinion, I'll ask you to fill out the necessary form.
