..Sort of. Chi fan is a generic term for eating. Although you can have 'chi' as its own verb and you can eat lots of things. chi wu fan le mei you? = did you eat lunch ni you mei you chi fan? = did you eat? ni you mei you chi mi fan = did you eat rice Slightly different. Remember that in chinese if you want to be proper, you need to use two character phrases, one character "words" can be ambiguous.

Submission + - Quicktime + Vista = BSOD!

Question Guy writes:
Apple Quicktime is causing a troubling problem which doesn't seem to be addressed by any of the major software & hardware manufacturers involved. On Toshiba machines, such as the Protege Tablet M400s, opening a locally stored quicktime .MOV on a machine with Windows Vista will cause instant BSOD. All other video functions seem to be working in other video playback types (even streaming .MOVs work), and there is little or no 'buzz' on the internet which might push any of the parties to play nice together. (Microsoft for Vista, Intel for the GMA945 chipset, Toshiba for their custom software for tablet functionality, or Apple for Quicktime)

Submission + - Wifi Health Danger

Zaffle writes: "Britain and New Zealand's top health-protection watchdog wants the wireless networks, which emits radiation, to be full investigated because of the concern for students' health. Several European provincial governments have already taken action to ban, or limit, Wi-Fi use in the classroom.

Recent research has linked radiation from mobiles to cancer and brain damage. And many studies have found disturbing symptoms in people near masts.

Professor Olle Johansson, of Sweden's Karolinska Institute, who is concerned about the spread of Wi-Fi, says "thousands" of articles in scientific literature demonstrate "adverse health effects" from Wi-Fi.

"Do we not know enough already to say, 'stop'?"

For the past 16 months, the provincial government of Salzburg in Austria has been advising schools not to install Wi-Fi, and is considering a ban."

Black Hole Cluster Spawns Massive Cloud 74

Shifty Jim writes in with an article at reporting that a cluster of galaxies harboring black holes may be the source of a massive cloud millions of light years across. Quoting: "A giant cloud of superheated gas 6 million light years wide might be formed by the collective sigh of several supermassive black holes, scientists say. The plasma cloud... might be the source of mysterious cosmic rays that permeate our universe... The plasma cloud is located about 300 million light years away near the Coma Cluster and is spread across a vast region of space thought to contain several galaxies with supermassive black holes... embedded at their centers."
