Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
But wasn't this the argument about Hawaii, that it wasn't really a state when Obama was born there, but his mother was a US citizen, etc, etc.
The issue with Obama as it has been stated is that his mother was 18 at his birth and had not lived for five years in the US after she turned 18. So If your mother was under 19 you can't be president. For me, that fucking bogus. An obvious bug, written into the US constitution.
Saves the day again.

Until recently I worked for a company which supplied industrial grade computers, including tablets. All the tablets we supplied ran windows. Google need to push hard to break into that market segment and developing a product like this is a good place to start.
Another overblown cure. The amyloid plaques are associated with permanent damage (ie. actual neuron loss), so you won't cure anyone by removing all of the plaques. You'd have to regrow neurons, and only certain portions of the brain can do that - even if you did, you'd still have to relearn and get new memories.
That might be a good thing. We do that all the time and memories lost from the last are not necessarily a bad thing. If you can restore function and record new memories, that would be a huge improvement.
Thats what backups are for.
Working in Korea once I needed to install a package with apt-get but the file came down empty. I asked around and it turns out that to download anything on the corporate network you had to install this active-x component which looks to see if a storage device is connected to USB. If a device is connected the download still won't work, but you can still make a local copy of the file, plug in the USB key, and copy the file that way, which is what we did on a windows box.
Half measures all over the place.
I have seen this with radar processing chains where different component slew the time at different rates, mostly because of differences in the OS and the time synchronisation software. If one part of the chain suddenly steps its time by a second, downstream components reject its messages.
I thought it was a collapsed lava tube. The lunar surface is pretty heavily pounded so hollow tubes are fairly unlikely, at least accessible ones.
All these parts are centrally tracked. Alarms would go off at Boeing.
Maybe they caught fire.
