Changed my opinion. See #Fritzing: Sucks, But the Only Game in Town. #Arduino  
I must retract my wildly enthusiastic report on Fritzing. It's very buggy. The only alternative I have found, Autodesk's 123Circuit is not soup yet.

ONC's pushing the pipe dream of computed consent will diminish executive attention and funds allocated to easing consent issues in the near term.

It's interesting that you mention the VA. The VAP (Veteran Authorization & Preferences) system does just what you mention and you are correct it is on a simplified level (i.e. yes or no to consent). The eHealth Exchange system also leverages written authorizations as well to derive a consent decision. Scaling this upwards will be quite a difficult task as they are using it with just a handful of partners and in a very simplified manner.

This is my first blog post since retirement. It is about a do-it-yourself health project based on recent research that suggests that sedentary people (like me) can get health benefits simply by getting out of the chair for 5 minutes once an hour. I have built a prototype reminder gadget.

+Bob Sheff "I was considering a mod to the router to turn off inet access then I would have to walk out to the router (in other room) maybe re-boot" 

If I were to cut off Internet for the family so I could get more exercise I wouldn't need to worry about dying of a chronic disease :-)

You did get me thinking, though. It would be nice to have a gadget that turned off the cable modem and the router and powered them up in sequence. There are "shields" (add-on boards) for the Arduino to manage controlling mains power. Hmmm. I'll bet with a week's effort I could save a minute once every two or three months. Sounds like a hobby project to me.

How does this work without a commutator? Does it slow down and eventually stop in a fixed position relative to the field of the permanent magnet?

Dutch NL Architects’ newest bridge is part of their proposal to connect Hong Kong with the mainland of China. The bridge’s dynamic twisted form is a great resolution to the differencesin driving styles, namely that in Hong Kong, people drive on the left side of the road and in the mainland China, they drive on the right side.

I have insufficient reputation points to comment on the questions on Area51, but let me at least make a general comment here. The strength of most Stack Exchange sites is a strictly enforced culture mitigating against debates on opinion and the "banter" that wastes readers' time with little added information. Were I able to comment on Area51 I would have flagged numerous questions as calling for opinion or implying pleasure in flame wars.

In my adult life I have cycled through 150-pound weight swings. Like most such folks have tried many diets. My primary care provider suggested the 5:2 diet first popularized by Michael Mosley in the BBC documentary Eat, Fast and Live Longer and recently discussed on NPR.

A picture is worth 1000 words, but often harder to make than that many words. Fritzing makes it easy.
Fun with the Arduino is enhanced by free open source software. The Fritzing app is an outstanding example.

Here's a 20% discount to smugmug. The very nice "power user" level (which
is what I use) is $60/year, pre-discount. I get it for $50 year via
grandfathering. With the 20% discount, it would be about the same as what
i pay.

(No pressure. Do what you want, of course!)

I think in this case correlation has to imply causality!
