Some recent piping repairs.  Too small of a plate heat exchanger can lead to some horrible short cycling issues in the boiler.

Hang on. I get the EFF's argument here, but ignoring the fact that App Ops was never a consumer-facing feature and from Day 1 was hidden shouldn't be ignored. Doesn't matter how much we think it should be an actual thing — the simple fact is it wasn't.

I do believe selective permissions is a thing that should be discussed, however, and probably be a real option. (I also think it'll be a nightmare for normal users, who barely understand permissions in the first place. A good bit of that is still because they're so poorly explained in Android in the first place.)

But being this indignant over something that none of us was really supposed to see or use in the first place being taken away is just silly.

A gene mutation for excessive alcohol drinking found.

Researchers have discovered a gene that regulates alcohol consumption and when faulty can cause excessive drinking. They have also identified the mechanism underlying this phenomenon.
The study showed that normal mice show no interest in alcohol and drink little or no alcohol when offered a free choice between a bottle of water and a bottle of diluted alcohol.

However, mice with a genetic mutation to the gene Gabrb1 overwhelmingly preferred drinking alcohol over water, choosing to consume almost 85% of their daily fluid as drinks containing alcohol - about the strength of wine. 

The consortium of researchers from five UK universities – Newcastle University, Imperial College London,  Sussex University, University College London and University of Dundee – and the MRC Mammalian Genetics Unit at Harwell, funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC), Wellcome Trust and ERAB, publish their findings today in Nature Communications.

The fall colors were late to change throughout Colorado this year. This stand of aspens still had a variety of colored leaves by the time snow fell. You can read more at
