All of those can be done with a guy spending two seconds typing in the name of new beers when they come in.

Also, St Augustine's in Vancouver does the whole live update menu thing and has for years. They have it over the bar and on screens over the urinals in the bathroom. I'm assuming they have flow meters or some other type of instrumentation set up.


Looks like they turned over a hell of a lot of kegs recently for whatever reason.

+ - Satochi Nakamoto's email address is compromised->

ASDFnz (472824) writes "Satochi Nakamoto, much revered and currently missing inventor of bitcoin seems to have had his email address compromised by an unknown agent.

You may or not remember, Satochi exclusively used one email address when he was active in the bitcoin community, If you have a look at the original bitcoin whitepaper you will find it there at the top just under the title. He also usually signed his correspondence with his PGP signature.

Earlier today, the head administrator of Bitcointalk Theymos received an email from Satochi’s email address that appeared to originate form GMX’s servers and made a post on the bitcointalk forums saying that he had received an email from the address without Satochi's PGP Signature.

Later developments have the unknown agent posting to other Satochi accounts."

So you think appointing a woman to a political position... hurts equal opportunity for women?

You seem to be working on the assumption that a lesbian inherently can't be a reasonable choice without taking PR into account.

Why don't you think this person's proved herself and in what scenario would you think that the political appointment of a lesbian isn't primarily for PR reasons?

Neat, I'm also in Canada and when I had head trauma they observed me and because it looked at least somewhat risky I got a CT scan within a half hour of walking into the hospital. Then when I started showing additional symptoms and the CT was reviewed I got an MRI, also within a very short period of time. The bleed ended up stopping itself.

In the year after that I had another MRI because of some continuing symptoms, in that cases there wasn't an emergency so I had to wait a while, and that's fair enough. Yeah, it's possible something horrible had happened again, but it was unlikely.

While it's certainly possible that your exchange was some horrible problem with the medical system, it's more likely that this:

"That sounds like an emergency, can't we get bumped up the line?" "No, the system does not view this an emergency."

was the doctor telling you he didn't think it was critical enough to escalate. Yeah, there is a system in place, but if a doctor actually has a reason to push for something due to a possible emergency he can do it. If you've had a concussion and it's been a little while and you're not symptomatic it's pretty darn likely that you don't have a bleed. It's not standard practice to perform imaging unless there are certain indicators:
