Re: Does that include returned/failed units
...please, Its called the pulsing blue dickpunch of sadness.

Hahaha, you said 'ask siri'.
Re: p < 0.05 ???
Stop with the stats fit and have a little think about what you are saying...
If I wanna do an experiment with say, mice for example, and in each treatment group there are 6 VERY expensive genetically modified animals that I have carefully age, sex and <insert other controllable variable> matched to reduce variablity, AFTER spending years generating that fragile/genetically complex mutated mouse line, I get a significant (P<0.05, or even <0.0027) difference in an already super expensive experiment (tens of thousands of pounds), you will immediately think it shit because of that significance value. Funding bodies are not made of money and most scientists do very well at getting good results with the minimum of expenditure.
To cut a rant short PHYSICS /= BIOCHEMISTRY
And before you annoy me any more, Biochemistry is a 'REAL' science. Just like physics is. Remember that next time you get all hot and bothered when reading a medical paper and need to stick another pill down your neck to stem the heart palpitations it gave you.
On my equally small sample of OCZ drives, 4 out of 5 have failed. To be fair tho, they were all replaced without any fuss but thats not the issue.
Re: I'd like to see any indication that these are 'thought' about 'food'...
Erm it has been peer reviewed.
People are slightly missing the point with this - the importance of this is that you can visualise in real time the calcium influx of neurones and thus their activity to an exogenous stimuli. It's kind of irrelevant what the stimulus is (and im pretty sure that is a paramecium) but I agree the headline that we can now tell what this fish is thinking is rubbish
Please read the source article before spouting rubbish.
It says "Though most of the animals at the center were unharmed, the center staff could not rescue the animals in one of the facilities, despite hours of work amid the flooding that started at the institute on Monday night"
Its not like they all sat around watching 10 years of work go down the pan. If you want to be furious, be furious at yourself for not reading / thinking before venting a strong opinion.
Liquid nitrogen cell banks dont need eleccy. They keep cells at -196 for as long as their liquid nitrogen lasts (which in a modern cell bank is weeks without a top up).
If they didnt freeze a stock of embryos then they are idiots. You dont risk 10 years of mouse work without backing it up with liquid nitrogen stock as mice can keel over for one reason or another without a hurricane... Im pretty sure this number of mice is nothing compared to the billions of wild mice that perished (although of course they had a chance of escape).
If they had a sustained power outage then they have DEFINITELY lost antibodys and very expensive chemical reagents too. If they have lost these too then they are double fools as like the above posters say; they had enough warning.
what if I have no cash
... and was the actual inventor of the technology who was just defending my IP?
Liquid nitrogen is very cheap (few £ for tens of litres) so to give a stable overclock a go would still be dirt cheap from a LN2 point of view. ie once the chip is down to temp, it doesnt take a huge amount of LN2 to keep it there...
Also, I suspect the hand is there in the vid to prevent small splashes ending up on parts of the mobo that don't want cooling and thus also prevent erroneous cooled parts getting condensation on which is another big problem at these temps. The temp differnce between your hand and a drop of LN2 is so high that when it touches it immediately boils off and you barely even notice. More than that and you know all about it as it burns you with prolonged contact....
