Submission + - Could Oral Sex Cure Skin Cancer?

shaitand writes: Previously my wife had a small spot of skin cancer removed. About a year later the spot returned. Rather than taking her back to the kooks in white coats I put her on a protein diet. I had previously read that females who engaged in oral sex and swallowed had greater disease and cancer resistance. So I began administering salted protein doses orally twice daily. Within three months the spot was completely gone and it has never returned. Could this really have been the cure?

Should we all make this sacrifice for the benefit of our significant others?

Submission + - Porting to var'aq?

spaceyhackerlady writes: "Our Marketing manager has had the brainwave that we should be more aggressive with our competition, so he decided that we should adopt Klingon culture around the office, effective April 1. This includes porting our systems to Var'aq, the official Klingon programming language. Something to do with killing (or at least maiming) the competition, he says.

Has anybody ever done this with a mainly Java-based system? Any good migration tools out there?


Operating Systems

Submission + - It's the stack, stupid!

AlexGr writes: "Jeff Gould (Information Week) March 13, 2007 The server operating system wars never seem to slow down. Last week it was Red Hat's turn with the announcement of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (REHL5), which incorporates the Xen open source hypervisor. Naturally there's also the endless market speculation about the final feature set and likely arrival date of Windows Server 2007 (aka Longhorn). And then there's Solaris, which with its nice value-add features like DTrace and its new status as open source software is making something of a comeback, it seems. http://informationweek.com/software/linuxexperts/b log/archives/2007/03/its_the_stack_s.html"
