Trying to play a few of my BluRays with DTS-HD 6.1 Master Audio.  Looks like they try to get transcoded in the server but fail with the following errors.  Any fixes or workarounds for this?

[aac @ 0xb221640] Unsupported number of channels: 7

Error while opening encoder for output stream #0:1 - maybe incorrect parameters such as bit_rate, rate, width or height

These researchers made a camera so fast it captured a light pulse in flight!  Ramesh's closing statement: "We should stop obsessing about the megapixels in cameras and start focusing on the next dimension in imaging. It's about time."

The government needs a warrant to read your physical mail, but not your e-mail.  I'm not sure why we need anything beyond the 4th amendment to prohibit this, but apparently we do.  Tell them we deserve better.

Just met a guy in the airport who worked for the company that makes the millimeter-wave full body scanners.  His opinion? "You couldn't pay me to get in those things."

According to him, initial tests on safety were "inconclusive", and subsequent tests haven't been much better.  With most health effects likely years away "inconclusive" seems about as bad as you could hope for at this point.

Additionally, he mentioned that the company had a reputation for shoddy quality.  In plain language, that means the amount of radiation you get blasted with is poorly controlled -- maybe it's the intended amount, or maybe it's much more.

I have objected to those machines on privacy grounds since they were introduced.  They are ineffective and routinely fail to detect threats (see link) -- in fact, they fail to detect things the metal detector would!  I certainly won't be going through these machines any time soon.

Stand up for your rights, your health, and your safety.  Opt-out.

Wow, that ripoff didn't take too long.  Wonder how the "story" compares.
