Yep. We're to the point where the factors that limit realism are knowledge/understanding of the materials and lights of the artist (or rather their knowledge of how to tell their renderer of choice about this stuff). We've got the computing power to make unbiased photon mapping / path-tracing practical these days, and the physics behind everything are understood well enough to fool the eye.

From my understanding, HFCS does something to inhibit ghrelin's function, so your gut doesn't tell your brain you're not hungry anymore until you've eaten/drank a lot more.

In other words, if you're consuming the same stuff as someone else but yours has HFCS instead of sugar, you're going to want a significantly larger amount of it before satiation.

Your real problem is that you don't have a homogenous environment. If everything you managed was rhel, you'd have a much easier time of it.

We have the same problem at work. Everyone is fine on the rhel boxes. But when the opensuse stuff comes around, good luck. When one of the solaris 10 machines acts up (we are stuck with that version for reasons outside of our control) there's only one other person than myself who has any kind of an idea.

To err is human -- to blame it on a computer is even more so.
