+ - Paypal's at it again->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Paypal seems to be up to their old tricks again, and limiting legitimate accounts once the owners start trying to withdraw their money. Under the guise of "a suspicious withdrawal or deposit", on the 25th of last month they decided to limit the account of indie game dev Notch(Of Minecraft and Wurm fame), preventing him from withdrawing his over 600,000 euros. This comes at a crucial point in the titles development, after recently being in talks with huge studios such as Valve and Bungie, and attempting to get office space and hire an entire team to help work on the game."

grrlscientist writes "While many natural history museum study skin collections have specimens that are more than 100 years old, most museum tissue collections are very recent — in fact, many were initiated during the 1980s. Due to the perishable nature of tissues, they are expensive to maintain and must be carefully managed and continually replenished. Unfortunately, funding shortages and other considerations have made it more difficult for museums to collect animals as often as they did in the past. Therefore, tissues from both wild and captive animals are limited, particularly those from rare and difficult-to-collect animals, such as lories."

ocean_soul writes "Last week the free and open access repository for scientific (mainly physics but also math, computer sciences...) papers arXiv got past 500,000 different papers, not counting older versions of the same article. Especially for physicists, it is the number-one resource for the latest scientific results. Most researchers publish their papers on arXiv before they are published in a 'normal' journal. A famous example is Grisha Perelman, who published his award-winning paper exclusively on arXiv."

I'd rather just believe that it's done by little elves running around.
