Go is still the best game online. I play at KGS and IGS. (KGS has better tools, IGS is easier to find an (apropriate) opponent on short notice.)
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Most forage grasses (such as Tifton 85) produce prussic acid (HCN) in the young plants and new shoots.
The level of prussic acid reduces as the plants mature, but the reducion of prussic acid levels is much less during drought conditions.
When establishing a forage plot, it is comon practice to apply the selective broadleaf killing herbicide 2,4-D. A side effect of 2,4-D application is an increase in prussic acid levels 3 hours and 6 hours after application.
The combination of drought conditions and 2,4-D application, as well as early grazing on this plot are likely to be the culprit here.
In terms that the slashdot crowd can understand: Operator Error and Not Reading the Documentation are likely to be the cause.
And yes, I am an Agricultural Worker.
(Also, I know how to google for facts before I post.)

Public commentary, news releases, statements in interviews, response to inquiry, etc. are verifiable and not difficult to find or obtain.
It is possible that some have been listed erroneously, by either good or ill intentioned persons.
Without some method of including evidence the usefulness and value of this list is questionable.
This Wikipedia entry is rather helpful.
Even though the Justice Department dropped it's case against Dan Bernstein, he has not reposted the cryptography resources he once made available on his site.
If anyone happens to know if those pages were ever mirrored and are still available, I'd greatly appreciate a link.
EDIT: I would prefer to find them on a non-US site.
Who's going to HOPE?
The National Security Archive is one of the truest examples of how the internet has the potential to change American society and the nature of the citizens involvement in government. Unlike many other conspiracy sites, the National Security archive consists mainly of documents that originated with the guilty parties themselves.
Some nice examples of what kind of collections that are housed there are:
