Yikes! This may be the first time I terminate SpinRite @SGgrc - Thoughts anyone?


I went to sleep last night with 3 hours elapsed and 152 remaining... then I wake to 5500+ remaining and 0% complete. I am giving it the day, whilst I am at work, but am not optimistic at this point. The longest I have ever had remaining was in the 300 hour range and that ended up taking just over 72 hours. Think it's worth a shot, to leave it be for a while?

So the end of an era... #brokeniPod touch

So used to not needing a case, since it was only ever used in the van and the house. I never took it anywhere else... but today I was carrying multiple items and dropped it on the concrete.

Lesson... Buy a case!

White Castle offers online ordering but makes you leave couch for pick-up -- Engadget

White Castle offers online ordering but makes you leave couch for pick-up

Do you crave hamburgers but also want to minimize your interaction with fellow human beings? Then your unicorn-riding white knight has arrived, in the form of White Castle's new online ordering service. Thought not quite as handy as Domino's UK-only SMS ordering, the feature is rolling out to all 400 US locations. The website lets you "customize your sack" however you please; it also has a pretty high (or non-existent?) limit on quantities, meaning 1,000,000 Bacon and Cheddar Sliders will set you back $1,190,000. That could be a bug or a feature, depending on how hungry you are. Sadly, no matter how large your order you'll still have to go to the burger joint to pick it up -- delivery is still just a beautiful, beautiful dream. Maybe they can partner with MIT for a print-on-demandservice.

Yes, You Can Get Leprosy From an Armadillo - ScienceNOW

For years, scientists have speculated that armadillos can pass on leprosy to humans, and that they are behind the few dozen cases of the disease that occur in the U.S. every year. Now, they have evidence. A genetic study published today in The New England Journal of Medicine shows that U.S. armadillos and human patients share what seems to be a unique strain of the bacterium that causes leprosy.

Leprosy, also known as Hansen's disease after the physician who first described it, attacks the skin and the nerves. It's a difficult illness to study: The bacteria grows naturally only in people and armadillos, and in experiments will grow on the footpads of genetically engineered mice.

In most places around the world where leprosy shows up, the disease is thought to pass from person to person. But in Central America and parts of the U.S. South and Southwest, armadillos are common, showing up in backyards, under porches, and by the side of the road. And in some places, more than 20% of armadillos are infected with leprosy. "It's always been a curiosity," says Richard Truman, a microbiologist at the National Hansen's Disease Program which is housed at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. Scientists think their low body temperature provides a good environment for Mycobacterium leprae, the leprosy bacteria; in humans, too, M. leprae prefers cooler areas, such as nostrils, fingers, and toes.
