    It's super flaky. They must be scrambling to get ready this next hour and a half.

    Ah man, felix9 led me astray! Tongue Out  I thought the keynote was at 7am because of that old stream.  It's not until 9am PDT.  Perplexed

  • What site is the build conference being streamed at

    @spivonious:  That is the wrong URL.  If you restart the stream, it says, "June 28th", and it's for Office 365.  Expressionless 

    EDIT:  In addition if you just fast forward to 1hr:20mins in, you'll see the press conference for Office 365.

  • Channel 9 Build

    @CKurt: Yeah, I've had 3 503s this morning.  Hopefully they'll be able to handle the traffic.  Isn't C9 running on Azure?

  • 503 service not found errors

    I've seen 3 503 service not found errors on Channel9 this morning ... must be all the extra activity in anticipation of //BUILD?

    Nice Ian. Smiley  I don't have a Windows Phone yet. 

  • Scientists prove Global Warming caused by the sun, not humans.

    @cbae:  I don't know. Smiley  I'm really busy at work, and I don't really have time to try to clarify/expand/correct myself right now.  Plus, I should just stick to what I know ... "stay on target".

    Yes, you did. You attacked my doctors/leeches example by stating it would be revisionist to say that "use of leeches by 19th century doctors wasn't as prevalent as we think it was today".

    No I didn't.  You're reading everything through your own filter and revising my comment.  I said, "Yes, but writing today that use of leeches by 19th century doctors wasn't as prevalent as we think it was today, isquite possibly revisionist - although perhaps most doctors were against leeches being used in medicine, I have no idea."  There's a big difference. I certainly never attacked; I'm just saying I don't believe everything I read, and that's the summation of it all.  The rest is just making conversation.

  • Scientists prove Global Warming caused by the sun, not humans.

    @cbae:  I didn't miss your point.  I just don't take someone's word for it, especially since it goes against my memory.  I would have to look at all the research history to know, and I don't plan on doing that today.  I don't use past mistakes as proof that current research is wrong, but I do consider past mistakes a warning that we have to be more vigilant.

  • Scientists prove Global Warming caused by the sun, not humans.

    @cbae: Yes, but writing today that use of leeches by 19th century doctors wasn't as prevalent as we think it was today, is quite possibly revisionist - although perhaps most doctors were against leeches being used in medicine, I have no idea.  (However, leeches is a bad example because they have some valuable use, even today, to clean wounds and encourage blood clotting.  We just found other ways of doing the same kind of thing.  Blood letting would be a better example; although there is possible reasons why it would help some cases, in almost all cases it's a terrible idea.)

    All I know for sure without literally going through papers from the 70s, is that "another ice age is coming" was a common belief and debated as widely as global warming in the public sphere.

  • Scientists prove Global Warming caused by the sun, not humans.

    @cbae:  That's not a myth.  When I was a kid, it was all about the "next ice age is coming" and "acid rain will kill all life".  Perhaps it was a myth in terms of the overall, real, scientific consensus of the time, but it was certainly played up in the media and believed by most everyone.

    After reading the article I can't help but think this is rewriting history.  In 20 years they will be saying scientific consensus did not support global warming; it supported "climate change".
