40% of the flu, all the immunity goodness

by crivers In reply to t3h bl0g

<P>So, if we use 40% of the usual dosage, insert it in another part of the body, we can have some flu immunity.  You mean, the flu epidemic requires math?!</P><br /><P><A href="http://www.nature.com/news/2004/041101/full/041101-13.html">http://www.nature.com/news/2004/041101/full/041101-13.html</A></P><br /><P>I say, eat your veggies and wash your hands.</P><p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://t3h.blogspot.com/2004/11/40-of-flu-all-immunity-goodness.html">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

Spin Some Corn

<A href="http://slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=04/11/05/0024206">New Blu-ray Disc to be Made of Corn</A> <br />
<P>aws910 writes "I've often thrown away a CD and wondered how long it will take to biodegrade. Pioneer has developed a blu-ray disc that is made of corn. If this disc is widely used, it may be the only easily biodegradable computer part/accessory (with the exception of pizza). Now I wonder what would happen to one of those new discs if you put one in the microwave for 5 seconds." While the idea of a corn disc isn't new, it's the first Blu-ray version of it.</P>

Corporate latency

<P>Normally I'm for the "littler guy" in David vs Goliath battles, but this is clearly a case of too little too late.  If Novell had a good application suite that didn't suck the life out of the machines its installed on, we'd go for it.  WordPerfect isn't perfect.  I'll give Novell kudos however for taking on SuSe and Ximian.  Nice moves there.</P><FONT size=2><br /><P><BR><STRONG>Novell Sues Microsoft Over WordPerfect</STRONG> <br /><BLOCKQUOTE><br /><P>From: Computerworld_Daily@Computerworld.com <BR>Sent: Friday, November 12, 2004 5:11 PM </P><br /><P>Novell has filed an antitrust lawsuit against Microsoft, accusing it of<BR>unfairly eliminating competition for office productivity applications<BR>at the time Novell owned the WordPerfect and Quattro Pro applications.</P><FONT size=2><br /><P></FONT><A href="U><FONT">http://www.computerworld.com/newsletter/0,4902,97483,00.html?nlid=PM"><U><FONT color=#0000ff size=2>http://www.computerworld.com/newsletter/0,4902,97483,00.html?nlid=PM</U></FONT></A></P></BLOCKQUOTE></FONT><p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://t3h.blogspot.com/2004/11/corporate-latency.html">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

A friendly kiss

by crivers In reply to t3h bl0g

<P>Kissing is probably one of the most misunderstood of human activities.  (much like the emotion of love)  Kissing means different things in different cultures.  It's also different in various work areas.  I kiss my children, which is different than the kiss I give my wife, or my mother.  Some men or women kiss men or women on the cheek.  </P><br /><P>Today, CNN.com posted the following image on their home page today:</P><br /><P><IMG alt="Courtesy CNN.com" src="/P><br">http://i.a.cnn.net/cnn/2004/ALLPOLITICS/11/17/education.secretary/top.bush.choice.2.ap.jpg"></P><br /><P>It's a picture of President Bush giving a friendly kiss to a woman he's been friends with for a long time and just appointed her to a high standing position in his cabinet.  This is sure to get the liberals all over his marriage.  I'll be the first to post it and the first to say it... stupid 4 year scandal.</P><br /><P>I hate politics.</P><br /><P> [Listening to: WoW 2001 - Blue Disc - dc Talk / Red Letters - <A href="http://search.windowsmedia.com/search/mgsearch.aspx?srch=Various Artists">Various Artists</A> (06:04)]</P><p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://t3h.blogspot.com/2004/11/friendly-kiss.html">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>

The art of being content

by crivers In reply to t3h bl0g

<P>We live in a world (or is it this country?) where MORE is expected - sometimes required - and never seems to be enough.  More money, more legroom, more education, more time.  Somehow we've lost the ability to think that what we want isn't always what we need and to be happy with what we have.  I'm guilty of this at times and it's one of my hardest struggles in life.</P><br /><P>I continually try to remind myself of these truths : </P><br /><UL><br /><LI>needs aren't the same as wants</LI><br /><LI>more of whatever we're after isn't always the solution to a problem or need</LI><br /><LI>God provides for our needs</LI></UL><br /><P>My life has been a full color illustration of God's providence.  Having been raised in various places across the United States - sometimes in need, and sometimes having plenty - I am blessed to know both sides of the picture.  There are many in this world who are on one end only, having never seen prosperity nor understanding the humility found in the desparation of addressing needs.  Thanks be to God for allowing me to have the experiences i've had and the knowledge I have to understand the lessons of contentment.</P><br /><P>Contentment is an art.  God, help us to devote our lives to making this art praise you.</P><br /><P> </P><p><div class="blogdisclaim"><a href="http://t3h.blogspot.com/2004/11/art-of-being-content.html">This post originally appeared on an external website</a></div>
