  • Actually, to join in the pedantry... "long shot" is a proper phrase.... From "World Wide Words": "A related expression is not by a long shot. However, this is originally a military idiom, based on the difficulty of hitting a target at long ran…
  • Thanks Kickaha - that was EXACTLY what happened - I left Word running during the virus scan, so the removal was incomplete (although of course Virex did not know that). As for Mr. Me - you gotta lighten up dude. "What's really going on"? As thoug…
  • Let me try again (although in re-reading my posts, it seems clear, and Kickaha got it right off)... I have the virus - I know because Virex finds and cleans it from various word docs. Yet with every new document I create, I am re-infected (the ne…
  • Well, I run Virex on the entire drive, and it finds and cleans files of the virus. Running it a second time reveals no viruses. However - if I create a new blank Word document after doing the virus check, and then save it, it is also infected. So…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Placebo I notice that Apple removed the mention of DooM 3 on their iMac Graphics page. They didn't - that reference has for some reason always been on the "design" page, not the graphics page. http://www.apple.c…
  • OK, I know some people hate these types of comparisons, but I did it for my own edification, and decided it was worth sharing. I hopped over to the Dell site, and configured somehting to roughly match the low end iMac. I am sure you could build o…
  • Well, this does not bode well.... http://games.slashdot.org/games/04/0...tid=112&tid=10
  • Just in case anyone out there has this same question....ATT says (both via phone and in-store queries) that this phone on their service wil NOT support logging in to "closed" networks (like my university account) to get popmail. The only solution th…
  • Thanks Thunder....I guess I need to get down to the local store and talk to the folks there. My experience has generally been poor, as far as the store personnel's technical expertise, but I will give it a shot. Thanks F
  • WHAT? His wife had botox?! Well, that settles it then...
  • Fellows, I am really happy to see you say this, but I admit I am a little confused - I thought you were a young-earth creationist? I would have sworn I remembered you talking about meeting Gish (or someone similar) and being active in the creatio…
  • Well, it looks like this will be the last time, as I have finally gotten you down to one complaint about the data... First, read the paper again if you would - much of the study does not involve vertically-averaged T and S measurments. Look at th…
  • Well, I note that the vast majority of your "criticisms" have been rebutted, and you have not even tried to resurrect them here, which is a start. I honestly do not understand your odd indignation at this paper, since you do not seem to have any ver…
  • I think his best path to swimming again has to be via your gastrointestinal tract....
  • Addabox, sadly, most of my patients do not survive. Still, I would be pleased to lend my not-so-healing hands to any sick fishes you happen to have. F
  • Anyone who does not recognize Blue Shift as a troll is not paying attention. The others arguing that side are at least sincere. Fish
  • Now we know they are all "jihadis"? Is this because they are Islamic looking? Do we have any idea what their religious or political affiliations are? (answer - no, because our own government won't tell us ANYTHING). Also, you have a twisted idea…
  • Well, I am at a loss about the toilet paper being left atop the seat, but many cultures poo by squatting over the receptacle (often some elaborated hole in the floor). So that part is unsurprising. Also, I know that in many areas without advanced…
  • You got a reference for that?
  • I am an oceanographer (albeit a biological oceanographer, not PO like the authors of the Nature paper). The stats are both in the paper AND (as is usual in Nature) in the assorted references). The authors explicitly stated how and why they chose …
