That's great that you eliminated processed food. Try to get your total cholesterol under 150. This page mentions the Framingham Study, which showed that "only patients with cholesterol levels of less than 150 milligrams per deciliter (mg/dl) achieve the lowest coronary artery disease risk. In the first 50 years of the Framingham study, only five subjects with cholesterol levels of less than 150 mg/dl developed coronary artery disease. Rural residents in the developing areas of Asia, Africa, and Latin America typically have total-cholesterol levels of about 125-140, and they do not develop coronary artery disease."

If you want to prevent heart disease, stop eating saturted fat and cholesterol and stick with a low-fat whole-plant-based diet. This knowledge is not new; this stuff has been known for almost a hundred years now, yet we're still spending money dancing around the fact that eating animals and their byproducts leads to heart disease.
Oh, you mean the International scientific community's attempt to redefine the Kilogram? It's called the "dildo" but they are having trouble all agreeing on the proper pronunciation. So for now they're continuing to measure up against this dildo-shaped hunk of alloy that apparently gains weight over the years and every so often has to be rubbed off ceremoniously by a skilled handler with a strap of leather dipped in alcohol.

Sounds like "anonymity on the Internet has to go away" for his business model to work. Blech.
DRM, that's the kicker. Talk about HTML5 all we want--fact is, there still ain't a standard video type. I can see MS continuing to pull all sorts of nasty lock-in strategies even with open standards.
Roku's nice and all, but they did a couple of things that really turned me off: First, they make it a mandatory to sign up an online account with them on-line in order to just use the device. Yet another account, sigh. I do not understand why I need to do this if the only thing I am using my Roku player for is streaming from my Netflix account. Next, they required collecting my credit card info as part of signing up with their online account. The credit card info gets used for purchasing content through the Roku device. But I had no intention of using it for anything besides Netflix. And there's no way to get around it, which is why I called them and forced them to give me access without any credit card info. This is ridiculous. Everyone these days seems to want the maximum information they can collect on you. I'm considering returning this device in favor of another one that's not so intrusive as to demand my credit card info right off the bat and track what I watch through yet another online account.
I agree with you. This is what I had meant to convey.. perhaps these attacks are already too entrenched in their systems for them to continue with any modicum of confidence.
