No, it is not a PARASITE
Caenorhabditis elegans, including the Australian strains, are free-living non-parasitic roundworms.

May be the museum should show a realistic waxwork of an engineer oiling
the IBM machinery at the Auschwitz concentration camp.
IBM's German branch, the Deutsche Hollerith Maschinen Gesellshaft, was deeply involved in the running of the Nazi bureaucracy consuming 1500 million punch cards a year.
Read "IBM and the holocaust" by Edwin Black.
Every demolisher knows there is always a hidden screw under the label, because the warranty is void if you remove or damage the label.
BTW I always use a blunt Stanley knife to open the box. It is safer and more effective than a screwdriver.
See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iiyGVvA6KfU if you want to see blood.
It is a widespread misconception that C# and .NET is a Microsoft® thing.
These are ECMA-International standards (ECMA-334 C# Language Specification and ECMA-335 Common Language Infrastructure).
Due to this we have mono-project.com and xamarin.com (love it).
Ms is, as you might imagine, one of the currently twelve voting members of ECMA-International.
Short distance 400G bps Ethernet may be useful for CERN, the Square Kilometer Array or have a roll as the backbone of a supercomputer. 'Normal' hardware cannot feed a connection like this.
In broadcast facilities underground tunnels with hundreds of parallel optical fibers are used. There is nothing wrong with that.
I bought my HP-25 in august 1975, the year it was launched (pun not intended).
The HP-25 was the first affordable programable calculator with floating point and scientific display, trigoniometric functions in degrees, radians and grads, statistical functions and much more.
Never returned the Service Card. Still going strong with new Ni-Cd cells.
@:obHib 'The big card companies, M/C, Visa etc. had absolutely no trouble screwing WikiLeaks by not allowing them to be paid.'
At the height of this so called screwing of WikiLeaks my state owned Dutch bank had no problem whatsoever handling my humble contibution to WikiLeaks.
The simple business model of One.com allows you to create a virtually unlimited number of CloudDrives with single or double encryption at the drop of a hat for an extremely low flat fee.
The only negative comment I can make about One.com is that the Earth spins clockwise in their promo-video.
http://validator.w3.org/#validate_by_uri finds errors and flags warnings in a large fraction of webpages. Browsers have now 'learned' to handle almost all of them gracefully. Most errors have nothing to do with targeting specific browsers, but are the result of sloppy programming.
Even many homepages of HTML code generators like quackit.com contain errors (in this case 197 Errors, 89 warnings).
Mine is the one with valid-html40.png in the pocket.
There is an alternative explanation for the Mpemba effect.
The thermal conductivity of water ice is two orders of magnitude smaller than that of a typical metal. So if the hot sample is capable of melting a frost layer on the cooling surface of even a few hundred microns (which is almost always there) and the cold sample remains isolated by a frost layer, the result may be the Mpemba effect.

In the mean time the hot issue in the broadcast world is HEVC a.k.a. ITU-T H.265
or MPEG-H Part 2 (ISO/IEC 23008-2). See: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/04/11/feature_wtf_is_h265_hevc/
and/or google "H.265-HEVC-Overview.pdf".
This codec will supersede H.264 in a few years time, just like H.264 superseded MPEG-2.
Ah, a steampunk VDU. That is the Machina Cryptologica of Athanasius Kircher S.J., described in his book Magnes, sive arte magnetica (The Magnet or the Magnetic Art), Cologne 1643.
See "Athanasius Kircher, The Last Man Who Knew Everything" by Paula Findlen (ed.), Figure 11.1.
Building TrueCrypt from the tarball TrueCrypt_7.1a_Source.tar.gz comes with several requirements inter alia:
RSA Security Inc. PKCS #11 Cryptographic Token Interface (Cryptoki) 2.20 header files (available at ftp://ftp.rsasecurity.com/pub/pkcs/pkcs-11/v2-20).
An audit should take this into account. BTW FTP is blocked by my firewall by default.
The BCC apparently has 106 40+ year old videotapes labeled "Dr Who".
If they can find equipment to run the tapes - The Center for Art and Media in Karlsruhe may be a good start -, the tapes may well turn out to be unplayable and/or disintegrate at the first attempt to digitise them.
Conservation of magnetic tape is a serious problem. According to Sarah Everts
(New Scientist, 24 Aug 2013) some 200 million hours of culturally valuable audiovisual content is in danger of disappearing entirely.
May be we should equate digitising analog videotapes with baking Babylonian clay
tablets by accidental fire which conserved them for millennia.
