In the three weeks since I inherited the admin position at my office, the sternest warning I ever got from ClamAV was from log messages saying I had an outdated version but "DON'T PANIC." So, I think to myself, it says don't panic, so don't panic--we're going to be building a new mail server in a few months anyway, so why worry? It's not like good open-source developers would ever pull a b.s. Microsoft move like intentionally throwing a kill switch on old versions of their software.

Yeah, caveat emptor, you get what you pay for, etc. I know.

Bad Driving May Have Genetic Basis 449

Serenissima writes "Bad drivers may in part have their genes to blame, suggests a new study by UC Irvine neuroscientists. People with a particular gene variant performed more than 20 percent worse on a driving test than people without it — and a follow-up test a few days later yielded similar results. About 30 percent of Americans have the variant. 'These people make more errors from the get-go, and they forget more of what they learned after time away,' said Dr. Steven Cramer, neurology associate professor and senior author of the study published recently in the journal Cerebral Cortex."

Intergalactic Race Shows That Einstein Still Rules 227

Ponca City, We love you writes "The NY Times reports that after a journey of 7.3 billion light-years, a race between gamma rays ranging from 31 billion electron volts to 10,000 electron volts, a factor of more than a million, in a burst from an exploding star, have arrived within nine-tenths of a second of each other. A detector on NASA’s Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope confirmed Einstein’s proclamation in his 1905 theory of relativity that the speed of light is constant and independent of its color, energy, direction or how you yourself are moving. Some theorists had suggested that space on very small scales has a granular structure that would speed some light waves faster than others — in short, that relativity could break down on the smallest scales. Until now such quantum gravity theories have been untestable because ordinarily you would have to see details as small as the so-called Planck length, which is vastly smaller than an atom — to test these theories in order to discern the bumpiness of space."

With all the fancy scientists in the world, why can't they just once build a nuclear balm?
