Every time Comcast increases my bill, I drop a feature that costs the same amount. They're getting perilously close to the point where that feature will be "TV".
An open message to Comcast execs: be absolutely sure you're ready to make customers decide between your content and Netflix. I bet you'd be surprised how often the response won't be what you'd hope.
in my neighbourhood, those "unseen areas" tend to be my garden, where i grow my food. i keep my cats leashed when they're outside and i wish everyone else would have the same courtesy. there was a woman on the news earlier this summer complaining that whenever she let her cat out it came home with a patch of fur shaved off. she couldn't seem to wrap her head around the idea that this would stop happening if she stopped letting her cat roam free around town.

...which is probably hanging off the same switch as a backed-up NAS, where they could probably mount \\copserver\evidence as the P: (for Perpetrator) drive and be done with it.
And it's not a big deal for a young healthy person to get it...
In particularly nasty flus, a young healthy immune system is more likely to trigger a cytokine storm, a potentially lethal situation. Little kids, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems are more likely to survive the really bad influenzas than your average otherwise healthy person.
Web browser makers are incentivised to make everyone use HTML5, regardless of whether it's a better fit than Flash or not.
It's always a better fit than Flash, because Flash isn't available on an enormous portion of web clients (e.g. no one on non-jailbroken iOS has it).
Too much RAM is dangerous because without ECC the risk of corruption becomes very high.
That's unlikely to be true. You'll increase the chance of getting an unstable but, but decrease the chance of that bit affecting any given piece of information you care about.
Except the filter doesn't catch the polonium and to a lesser extent radioactive lead that is in tobacco. C Everett Koop warned us about that since the late 1980s or early 1990s. Coal pollution also pumps out radioactive particles (uranium and thorium), but those don't emit alpha rays anywhere near as quickly as polonium.
Yeah, I'd say us VM users are definitely more RAM pigs than most. I run a linux VM isolated from my internal network that handles all my external servers (i.e. web server, ssh, etc). My web site gets hit by Chinese hackers every day, so that gives me the peace of mind that they can pretty much do nothing except vandalize the server (which is easily fixed from a VM snapshot, but I do need to find how they breached the server, which has thankfully only happened once).
