Comment: Stanford Hospital nearly killed me (Score 1) 350

Stanford Hospital nearly killed me: I received cyberknife surgery from them. A few months later, I was in severe pain, not understanding what was wrong. Over the phone, they prescribed me decadron, without addressing the great pain I was in. That medicine, coupled with severe pain, almost killed me. I have lost all respect for them.

You know, it really seems relevant, because it's parallel computing. It's interesting how you describe it as "combining thread pools with queues of closures". Kudos to you. Unfortunately, my score was (1) and your score was (2) so now this part of the thread is buried so deep down that nobody will ever read it.

The Playstation 3 is a great machine -- I'm just not thrilled that they do not yet have backward compatibility with Playstation 2 games. Honestly, I want to play Shadow of the Colossus on the Playstation 3 with the new emulation technology http://kotaku.com/5304117/sony-patents-method-to-emulate-ps2-on-ps3 that will probably improve the straining frame rates in the game. If they were really serious about the new machine, they would adopt something similar to Grand Central Dispatch http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mac_OS_X_v10.6#Grand_Central_Dispatch then they would get SO much more support from developers.
