Comment: Keyboards for writing (Score 1) 147

I do a lot of writing, fiction and non. About a year ago I got a Rosewill keyboard with the Cherry Brown switches and love it. Once had a Toshiba notebook that had a great keybd but other than that everything I'd used for years was the flat, no-feel, lowest-common-denominator cheap ass junk that everyone seems to put up with. I never seemed to find anything at the local computer stores (Micro Center etc) that was worth a damn either. But the Rosewill seems pretty damn nice. I can pound it mercilessly all day.

My only concern at this point is key legend wear. It seems that the "s" key is not as legible as it was when new. By comparison my old Dell kbd's legends were almost completely gone except for Q, Z, X, W and a few others. There's a process called double-shot molding where the legends go all the way thru the thickness of the key, otherwise they're like painted on, and can wear off.

+ - Former CEO Fiorina announces bid for White House->

Submitted by seven of five
seven of five writes: "Former Hewlett-Packard Co Chief Executive Carly Fiorina announced on Monday she is running for president, becoming the only woman in the pack of Republican candidates for the White House in 2016.

Once one of the most powerful women in the American corporate world, Fiorina announced her bid on ABC News' "Good Morning America" show.

"Yes, I am running for president. I think I'm the best person for the job because I understand how the economy actually works. I understand the world, who's in it, how the world works," she said.

Fiorina registers near the bottom of polls of the dozen or so Republican hopefuls and has never held public office.

But she has already attracted warm receptions at events in the early voting state of Iowa where she is positioning herself as a conservative, pro-business Republican highly critical of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

Fiorina was forced by HP to resign in 2005 as the tech company struggled to digest Compaq after a $19 billion merger."

Cue all HP employees, current and former, who have nothing but love for Carly F.

Actually, the science for cryonic preservation is advancing. Don't forget, there are thousands of people walking around today who, as embryos, were frozen in LN2 for years. Although there have been no successful resuscitations for frozen mature individuals to date, you really can't prove it can't happen. There's nothing in physics that says therapies can't be developed to repair cells (they don't burst, they dry out). There's just nothing in medicine yet for it.
