Am I the only one who though of the Lexx after reading this?

My son was diagnosed with it in Kindergarten and at age 11 he is finally coming around to being able to not embarrass himself too much in social situations, though he still has a lot of work to do in dealing with social norms, like dealing with things that make him upset...however like others have said above I consider it an advantage to him since his cognitive abilities in most everything are 2-3 grade levels above normal due to the way he views and processes information, especially stuff that is nothing but facts or manipulations thereof (e.g. math)
On a total side note, watching him grow up and how he deals with things, I definitely had Asperger's growing up, based in recollection I would guess about halfway through high school I finally got somewhat comfortable with social things but wasn't fully comfortable (that is still debatable) until my mid-20s.
Would love to see some slow-mo pics of this, but I think we need more than 5000fps to see it:
Bingo...they are forbidden to using cloud services from competitors...I'm sure once IBM joins the cloud service provider party, that will be allowed.
The TCO is fairly high since Linux Admins tend to command a much higher salary, generally don't crossover as much (I know plenty of Windows guys that do all around IT and fewer Linux guys that know Windows....far-fewer)
Really? I've found it the complete opposite in my 12+ years of being a sysadmin...the people who started off from a linux background are generally good at being jacks of all trades, but the ones who started off from a Windows background aren't quite as well rounded. While I primarily do linux/unix work, my resume is also heavy into Windows stuff, so much that I went to a job interview once where the CIO/linux architect and his windows guru grilled me up and down on the stuff listed on my resume and at the end the Windows guy commented that I could probably do his job better than he could...then the CIO mentioned that they didn't really have an opening, they just wanted to interview this guy who had an "obviously bullshit resume" and were surprised that it wasn't BS...still didn't get me a job offer though (small company).
The contractor currently working for me now is a massive exception, I was originally leery about his linux skill set since he came from a strong Windows environment with very little linux before coming to work for us, but his troubleshooting skills are godly impressive and there hasn't been anything he hasn't been able to figure out yet.
YES! I got decent mid-range BluRay player for the family at Christmas and that is exactly my experience. Have put exactly 3 BluRay discs into it, 1 wouldn't even play the movie after sitting through that whole mess of preview stuff (yet the DVD that came in the box was playing in less than 30 seconds), and the other 2 while looking very nice (Rio was AWESOME in video and audio quality) took about 10 minutes to even get the movie playing due to all of the various screen loads.
I just use the BR player now to watch DVDs, listen to CDs, and stream Netflix.
Totally turned off by BR.
These are not private emails, these are the emails from her official account from when she was Governor...if she was stupid enough to conduct personal correspondence using that account, well sucks to be her...
On a trip in Korea I remember seeing a new hotel being built in between another pair of 10 story buildings...the artists rendition posted in front of the site showed it sitting in an open green field with no other buildings around it...in reality, 2/3rds of the building wasn't visible at all from the street.

Or as the local radio station pointed out this morning...just go to someone's mailbox, pull out all of their outgoing mail and use their codes on your letters.
