All I care about is whether or not they've fixed jerky playback with the default settings. There's some loop filter you have to disable if you want smooth playback of x264 video - I don't know whether it's because the loop filter takes place after read-ahead caching, or what, but it's a pain.

tennis balls on the bottom.
Isn't that a deleted scene from Fifty Shades of Grey?
Actually that may not have been "on"...
Is it really so very, very hard to just leave things alone?
If you keep playing with it, it'll fall off.
Wow, that was a fun game Slashdot, but I finally found the hidden "Post" button.
Green text on a very slightly darker green background? Genius!

parents of babies who seem likely to develop a peanut allergy
How does one identify a baby who "seems" likely to develop a peanut allergy?
Because there were no planes blocking out the sunlight. Duh!
Our government is EXPLICITLY forbidden from doing so.
Is the government also explicitly forbidden from permitting itself to do things differently in the future?
