Re: And we....

First they came for children's TV channels,

but I didn't speak out because I wasn't a children's TV channel.

Then they came for film review meta-critics,

but I didn't speak out because I wasn't a film review meta-critic.

etc.

Re: Dubiety...

The days of the week are named after what the medievals believed were the planets, or so I believe. It is more obvious if you use French rather than English.

Monday - Lundi - Moon

Tuesday - Mardi - Mars (Tiw's planet)

Wednesday - Mercredi - Mercury (Woden's planet)

Thursday - Jeudi - Jupiter (Thor's planet)

Friday - Vendredi - Venus (Frige's planet)

Saturday - Samedi - Saturn

Sunday - Dimanche - Sun

Sleep Cycle

Nonsense

Looks like snake oil to me. Having played around a fair bit with the iPhone, I'd be very surprised if it was sensitive enough to detect movement on the bed (unless you thrash around like Linda Blair).

I personally use sleepyti.me (I have no affiliation with the site), which uses a very simple rule to determine when you should be setting your alarm/when you should be going to bed. And it's FREE.

@AC

Presumably the SmartOS container is better at managing IO, resources, etc. Given that MySQL doesn't scale well over multiple CPUs, it doesn't sound that far-fetched.

How scareware scumbags avoid getting flagged by banks

@Tony

== Only a minority – estimated at one in 10 users – of the 2.3 million purchasers of fake antivirus software during the two-year study ever complained. An even smaller percentage tried to initiate a chargeback ==

Presumably if banks began to profile chargeback activity, fraudsters could refund all chargebacks. Question is, do they stop being fraudsters at that point?
