From circa news:
The state's Dept. of Health said the water supply is safe to drink but cautioned against getting water in the nose, which how the amoeba reaches the brain.
Reported by BBC News in US employee ‘outsourced job to China’:
The employee, an “inoffensive and quiet” but talented man versed in several programming languages, “spent less than one fifth of his six-figure salary for a Chinese firm to do his job for him”, Mr Valentine said.
Sounds great, but I’m too lazy to do even this.
Welcome to the new home of the world’s most popular canopener bridge. Since 2008 I have recorded dozens of trucks challenging the low-down meanest train trestle in America.

Amazon just closed her account and wiped her Kindle. Without notice. Without explanation.
I’ve been lazy lately about stripping DRM out of books we buy and sticking them in our archive. I think I’ll try to do better.
Perhaps, at least, the books weren’t wiped? Kindle user claims Amazon deleted whole library without explanation (See the “updates” section.)
I’m sure there are a lot of details we don’t know about this yet. It’ll probably be one of those stories that starts out with an explosion and ends up being a non-event when the full story comes out.
If you can read this without laughing out loud I question your sense of humor: The Fart That (Almost) Altered My Destiny.

Now a magnet in each fingertip, maybe I can see doing that…
This weeks Forbes cover story is all about the company I work for and our CEO, Neal Patterson. Nifty. (I’m not sure how long that link will work.)
I’ve been with Cerner for nearly 20 years (even through the infamous parking lot memo talked about in the article) and I love it. I feel that we’re working on things that are actually useful for humanity, and that’s refreshing.
Towards the end of the article you’ll see this:
A new type of patient record is quickly and automatically searchable, even if the data go back decades.

If this is true, I’m pretty thrilled: MAD for the iPad
That will mean I’ll be able to never find the time to read it on my iPad, instead of never finding the time to read the print copies I get in the mail.
It’s very MAD-like to release on April Fool’s Day. Or maybe it’s a great MAD joke.
