There was a study done about this, (multiple ones, double blind studies, etc) that showed no corrolation between wi-fi signals and the ill feeling. only thing that changed was an LED on a wireless router in the room with them.

It showed that for the vast majority of "sufferers" it was entirely psychosomatic. I'm not sure how people would treat that. I suppose you could give them "pills" to help deal with it. where the pills are sugar pills. I'm pretty sure the placebo effect would work wonders on these patients, since they already have the nocebo effect of wifi causing them illness.

I saw total recall,I know what we need to do. All we have to do is re-ignite the alien fusion reactor in Mars' core which will within about 30 seconds, turn the core molten, restore the magnetic field and produce a breathable atmosphere. It'll even be fast enough that if you get thrown out onto the surface, you will struggle to breath for about 30 seconds, your eyes will bulge out of your head, but as the pressure equalizes you'll be ok, and you'll have saved everyone on Mars from the grip of an evil corporation.

Comment Re:Do you like DVDs that crap out on that one scen (Score 1) 367

I liked PC Gamer's review of Extreme Paint Brawl (lowest score ever at the time mainly due to the fact that the game wasn't fun and was buggy as hell). That was a game that was so buggy as to be unplayable. a few glitches, crashes etc that are common in modern games, I can over look them as I know they'll be fixed. Another problem with reviews is that the game they get to play, isn't the same game you buy on day one. It's pre-release, so it has MORE bugs. What is the point of saying the game sucks because of this one bug that is at the beginning of the game blah blah blah... focus on that bug, but if that bug isn't in the final release, you look petty as a writer.

The problem with VESA mountable PCs for this usage, most times you want to mount the monitors on the wall. you can't if you're using the mounting holes to hold a PC... better to use video extenders from a server room/wiring closet with old repurposed laptops. or small NUC like computers driving multiple monitors. from far away.

One thing that has been a major point is in the the Transgender/Drag community. Legal name changes take time and Transgendered people have to jump through hoops to get their name and gender changed legally. And in the case of the drag community, those names tend to be stage names.
