Speed and heat have been no issue at all.

Being a software exporter, I was concerned by this post, so I went and read the material. Not all of it, but fairly large swathes of it. I'm actually a little bit disappointed that Slashdot would greenlight the original submission when the abstract is so sensational and misleading.
But the question is : What to do now? Should I tell the hotel? Should I just do nothing? Should I book in for treatment because I'm being paranoid?"
Having an uber fat pipe is not really what most people need. Having a nice low latency (eg below 10ms) is what will really enable realtime thin client apps, cloud based n-tier apps (where part of the business logic layer is on the client), MOBAs and MMOs. I don't want Gigabit because I pump huge volumes of data (about 50Gb per month), I want Gigabit because I hit my latency wall several times every day.
Anyway, here's a simple drink we invented for those who really love the sting of a hot chilli:
Jalapaccini (pronounced Hal-a-pa-chee-nee)
1 nip of vodka
1 nip of dry vermouth
1 piece of your favourite chilli (not the full chilli, just a piece about the size of an olive)
Its just like a dry martini - but hot!
In the first 5 minutes, the sting isn't fully released into the fluid, but after 20 minutes, its at about 70%. If you make up a little bottle of the stuff and leave it in the fridge overnight, all the flavour is released from the chilli, and you can throw the chilli away - though you might want to keep it for decoration. I tend not to cool it though, as its best served at room temperature.
The other is the 'enhancements only changelog' - or what we colloquially refer to as 'the readme'. It only contains feature enhancements or significant bug fixes.
I'm astonished at the posts in this thread that have been modded up, but just don't get this point. This is about the only one I've seen so far that is truly insightful. The NSA's dragnetting is why we can't have good things. It will progressively push all other countries to legislate that information on their citizens must be hosted inside their borders. And Brazil's approach is the right one. They won't go after their citizens, or the big bad NSA. They'll just go after the businesses themselves. For companies like Google, this will be an inconvenience, but for any small company wanting to do international business on the internet, their options just evaporated. Here's hoping that they'll get some international law in place to declare the NSAs actions illegal - and some decent penalties applied at a 'per capita' rate.
Check out this site. It has some really good material and references about the science behind this stuff.
You might also find this interview with one of the key scientists interesting.
I don't profess to be a climate change guru, but this stuff looks reasonably legit to me.
We have special testing programs that are targeted at protecting patient safety.
We also have insurance up the wazoo (a technical term). Our PI Insurance covers us for several millions of dollars per claim, and hundreds of millions for class actions. It is our single biggest insurance expense for the entire organisation.
I'm happy to say that in 18 years, we've never made a claim against it, and we've never been notified of any negative consequence on any patients.
Yes, yes... its got a bajillion plotholes, some of which you could drive an interstellar mothership through, but the eye candy is good, its got some laughs, and its kiddiesafe. I wouldn't call it terrible... just cheesy. Like Independence Day...
Who remembers products like ICS, and the early CD-writer plug ins for Explorer?
They're still around, and as good as ever.
This one provides a Start button for Windows 8. Its very cute...
The problem is, if this is the most significant/compelling difference between Windows 7 and Windows 8(.1), why would anyone buy it? Microsoft's obsession with rationalising their product set down to one-size-fits-all will ultimately result in them losing all markets instead of simply continuing to dominate one. We all knew that Bill Gates departure from the M$ helm would result in its downfall. Its just painful to watch someone die of cancer.
