My perspective on the IPCC e-mail flap and Obama’s upcoming trip to Copenhagen

Here’s a link to a BBC page that puts the recent flap over IPCC e-mails in perspective.

It’s certainly not a clear-cut case, but politics will make it seem so -- in both directions.

It makes me think of Mark Fuhrman in the O. J. Simpson case.

Duration of cytokinesis does not vary in first embryonic divisions

Cytokinesis is accomplished by constriction of a cortical contractile ring (green), which completes cell division to generate the two daughter cells. Despite the reduction in cell size during successive divisions, cytokinesis completes in the same amount of time, as the four C. elegans embryos shown in 1-4 divide synchronous. Carvalho et al. Cell, Volume 137, Issue 5, 926-937, 29 May 2009. www.cell.com

How to Fix Bricked G1G1 XO Laptops Automatically

I've been getting increasing numbers of requests from donors in the first OLPC Give 1 Get 1, many of whom are just getting around to opening their XOs, to have their laptops repaired.

Wanted: a XO heartbeat

As is now widely known, due to a manufacturing glitch the first few batches of OLPC XO-1s that were shipped to consumers had a faulty motherboard battery holder. This alone wouldn't be a problem, if only two other things hadn't happened at the same time:

The XO-1s were shipped with Open Firmware's security enabled. This caused them to have the same anti-theft protection as laptops deployed in the third world, without any of the benefits of a remote killswitch or trackingThe XO-1s had a version of OFW which would fail to boot when the clock was below a certain value

The above two issues combined with the manufacturing fault was a recipe for disaster. Owners who discovered this in the first 30 days were able to get a RMA and a working laptop, but OLPC lacked the resources to support those outside of this minimal warranty.
