"I have lists of hundreds of albums I cannot find anywhere"

I guess you have tried Soulseek? There is a linux (nicotine) and an OS X client (ssX) availible. I have found it to be the best place by far to look for obscure music. You might have to give the search some time though (days) since the user who has the music you want has to be online for it to show up.

And Gemm is a good, although sometimes a bit expensive, place to find second hand Lps and Cds.

You are half correct. As I understand it: Healthy people under normal circumstances regulate their breathing based on CO2 since CO2 will rise well before significant decrease in O2. People with COPD instead regulate based on O2. They are insensitive to CO2 from having had high amounts in their blood for a long time. This is why you have to be careful giving them oxygen since it might downregulate their breathing and cause CO2 poisoning.

Surprises in Microsoft Vista's EULA 385

androthi writes "Scott Granneman takes a look at some surprises in Microsoft Vista's EULA that limit what security professionals and others can do with the new operating system. You want to post benchmarking results? Well, Microsoft may now have a say in it. Vista's EULA no longer shows up on Microsoft's software licensing page, but does still exist — also take note of Windows DRM deciding what you can and can not listen to, and Defender deciding and removing what it considers spyware automatically (by default)."

Mass Extinctions from Global Warming? 348

uncleO writes "The current issue of Scientific American has an interesting article, Impact from the Deep, about the possible causes for the five major global extinctions. It contends that only the most recent one was caused by a 'dinosaur killer' asteroid impact. Evidence suggests that the others were caused by 'great bubbles of toxic H2S gas erupting into the atmosphere' from the oceans due to anoxia." From the article: "The so-called thermal extinction at the end of the Paleocene began when atmospheric CO2 was just under 1,000 parts per million (ppm). At the end of the Triassic, CO2 was just above 1,000 ppm. Today with CO2 around 385 ppm...climbing at an annual rate of 2 ppm...to 3 ppm, levels could approach 900 ppm by the end of the next century."

The upgrade costs $25 for current subscribers and includes the ability to transfer to desktop PCs as well. To recap, you can now transfer your TiVo shows to your laptop, desktop, and portable, as well as burn them to DVD. Time for me to subscribe to HBO."

Cadef writes "According to a story on CNet News.com, Nicholas Negroponte says that Linux has gotten too fat, and will have to be slimmed down before it will be practical for the $100 laptop project. From the article: 'Suddenly it's like a very fat person [who] uses most of the energy to move the fat. And Linux is no exception. Linux has gotten fat, too.'"
