IOL: Cloning pioneer 'admitted faking stem cells'

check: http://breakingnews.iol.ie/news/story.asp?j=71031608&p=7yx3y9yx and http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/4532128.stm

.... really makes me wonder how do we believe scientific results appearing in reputed journals like Science!!

its also painful to know that many are more interested in publicity than real science to help in prosperity of human society.

i hope every one of us have some positives to learn from such incidences, be candid in what we do and accept mistakes if done; before someone points a fingure at u :)

GDS as a Version Control System

the caching ability of GDS (goodle desktop search) can be effectively used to a VCS, and this is what is exactly done by this plugin. no need for any expensive solutions!

a simple jvm launcher

ever wanted to have more memory available with jvm, but didn't want to write platform dependent shell script or .bat files? here is a sampler, it spawns a new vm with more memory from the class file, which can be packed as a jar (you need jdk 1.5 for this code):

import javax.swing.*;

public class Hello {
public static void main(String [] args) {
if (args.length == 0) {
try {
System.out.println("I now have : " + Runtime.getRuntime().maxMemory());
Process p = new ProcessBuilder("java", "-Xmx256m", "Hello", "memory").start();
} catch(Exception e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}
} else {
JFrame f = new JFrame("Hi! I have more memory!: " + Runtime.getRuntime().maxMemory());
f.setVisible(true);
} // end if
}
}

break: A Comparison of Solaris, Linux, and FreeBSD Kernels at OpenSolaris.org

A Comparison of Solaris, Linux, and FreeBSD Kernels at OpenSolaris.org: " and debugging tools are critical to get a correct understanding of system behavior. Yes, you can read the source code, but I maintain that you can easily misread the code. Having tools available to test your hypothesis about how the code works is invaluable. In this respect, I see Solaris with kmdb, mdb, and DTrace as a clear winner. I have been 'reverse engineering' Solaris for years. I find that I can usually answer a question by using the tools faster than I can answer the same question by reading source code. With Linux, I don't have as much choice for this. FreeBSD allows use of gdb on kernel crash dumps. gdb can set breakpoints, single step, and examine and modify data and "
