What really sucks is that he's a top rated allergist in the area and just informed me about tolerance

But like I said earlier, I just avoid nuts except peanuts... but even then it's rare that I have anything nutty. I even order Thai food with no nuts just for safety.

Sunflower seeds though, nom all day.

In terms of allergen tolerance... anything from mold spore, pollen, cat dandruff... I try to take in as much as possible. Blow my nose, drink water and get over it

Jimmy Carter made it very difficult for many Americans to live, and he was just a peanut farmer. Peanuts must be pretty insidious.

If there was a common food ingredient/supplement/additive that could kill my child I would not wish to rely upon the judgement of the child. I would endeavor, post haste, to desensitize them for their protection as Master Perez's parents did.

I spent the last few years building up an immunity to iocane powder. And cats.

At least we can all agree that nobody here is allergic to putting hairy nuts in thier mouth.

In an unrelated ironic twist of fate, my son has no allergies but does not like chocolate. He will eat everything else. Loves raw oysters. He's 3 and a half.

No kids but a friend of mine has two. At their school the kids with peanut allergies have to sit at a separate table. One father is home schooling now because he showed up at a school event and they were serving food which had peanuts in it. Everything was clearly labeled and highlighted if it had them in it.

So I built a new HTPC and decided to repurpose the old HTPC as a NAS server. I've got it up and running with Win10 with a shared disk that I've got mapped on my other computers so they can use it for system backups. I also have an FTP server running so that my Foscam webcam can upload to it.

What other cool things can I do with it? Seems like I should find some other interesting uses for it, if it's going to sit there sucking up electricity 24 hours a day.

Load Peerblock and the VPN service of your choosing, and have a dedicated torrent box.

Run a copy of WildCat! BBS on it, with a telnet -> modem emulator, and host a round of Global War.

Make your services available to SETI@home.

Host the world's largest single collection of pictures of ducks wearing hats.

Install a real server OS on it like Linux.

For what purpose? I'm not hosting a public web page, or storing a medical records database.

"A vaguely defined monolithic entity, which is shrouded in a veil of secrecy and may or may not appear to be part government and part corporation, exploits a small number of individuals, some of whom may or may not be clones / replicants / other engineered humanoids, using a cleverly devised series of lies and manipulation, in order to provide a high standard of living for the masses, who may or may not actually be enslaved without their knowing it."
- Pretty much every good sci-fi film of the past 35 years.

It struck me when I watched "Oblivion" last night. Very good movie, which I recommend.

But then I realized that the underlying plot concept was the same as Moon. And The Matrix. And Aliens. And Blade Runner. And Battlestar Galactica. And Minority Report. And The Island. And Cube Zero. (edit: and Portal.)

Not a criticism; all good movies. Just an observation.

Can't recall that I've watched it. I will rectify that.

Oh, and add Portal to my list as well. GLaDOS lies to test subjects, who may or may not be clones of former employees, in order to exploit and manipulate them into doing science for the benefit of the people who are still alive, who may or may not actually be alive.

True enough. And also an excellent film, though not really sci-fi in the popular sense; no aliens, no fictional technology, etc. More of a pure drama which happens to be set against a technological background. eg: it portrays events which are plausible in the present-day, rather than being futuristic or other-worldly. (Yes, technically Mars is an "other world," but you know what I mean.)

Falls into much the same category as 2001. Very intellectual, and conflict arises from circumstances and from within, with no external antagonist.


So, revise my above to read "90% of all good sci-fi..."
