    @mcdemarco @johngordon for aged patients, those likely to be on a number of medications already, the protocol for anesthesia may be part of the problem: they go without food and drink prior to going under and thus are off their meds. a confounding effect.

      @ronaltzer46 Ron, I pass these posts on to others who might want a better job...keep up the good work [opportunities]!

        @bazbt3 interesting. When we ask "what could possibly go wrong?" the physical possibilities are mostly what I too would have come to mind, the engineer's perspective. "who could possibly have it in for this [project, proposal, group,...] is paranoia.

          @mcdemarco The tenacity of the smart posters on ADN is leaving no regrets about renewing. The expectations of the most optimistic investors may not have been met but I get all I need here...and now you provide a recipe to get more. Thanks.

            @rabryst we are not sufficiently evolved...but the behavior described may continue weeding out the stupidity.

              @minego as would any parent. best of luck!

                @rabryst just me, maybe you. it wasn't the best example, though I can imagine it is possible...involves thresholding analog information to see it as digital...noisy to be sure but we digital folk have ways to deal with noise.

                  @minego pushing out good hopes for a happier diagnosis.

                    @sdn I have not yet understood Cerf's concern here. You could store pictures on 8-track if you had to and if enough customers had them [not encrypted] in any media or the cloud, economic incentive exists to provide conversion. Cloud fails if net is down.

                      @larand OK Larry, that sounds good. I do sometimes find I can not drag a tune to the burn list from some sources in WMP…whose walled garden is more restrictive: APPL or MSFT?

                          @joanna or hemorrhoid , er android devices...those force you to shift to numeric screen when texting a comma. I get stressed over looking even more illiterate than I already am but texting is about FAST communications ...

                            @mcdemarco ;) yeah, not so much juice there.

                              @larand just now I am hating my ultracheap hemi-droid phone..why oh why put a huge "call" button on a part of the texting UI that virtually guarantees accidental phone calls? [and other similar gripes about UI idiocy. should I consider windows phones?

                                @hrpanjwani @konrad @clarkgoble @duerig @johngordon @oluseyi @gtwilson @gaelicwizard some of us old leftists in the US even had doubts about “”desert Storm” which now seems a model use of our military might compared to what follies followed it.

                                  @johngordon ah, the grim game of time management triage. curse of the polymath and poor ADD basket cases like myself. also, grateful to see blogging and RSS tools even mildly resurgent.

                                    @johngordon a competitor. We were late getting 1st round funding and by the time we had a 1.0 editor to sell, they had a company for MS to buy. [I was employee #6 at Trellix]

                                      @johngordon yeah but I find I have much sympathy for “buying HPQ and MSFT is a bet against real progress” idea…HPQ has buried some neat patents bought up with CPQ, MSFT buying Vermeer sunk other promising HTML editors…I went down in those ships.
