I have heard of it....my prof in the Judaism class mentioned. I know it was referenced in an episode of Law & Order:Criminal Intent....I am such a nerd....that episode last night was sick and twisted.

I will have to check it out, see if I can find a course online.

I notice no one has ignored me yet...so what's up; is the feature not working? has everyone just not figured out how to use it yet? or am I slipping? I really thought I was being extra offensive lately, but apparently to no avail.

Perhaps people have just built up an immunity to you. Try being sickly-sweet for a while and confuse their immune system the way a retro-virus does.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Hmmm, I might be tempted to take you up on the offer; however, I observe that you have yet to be ignored as well. Only people you've managed to piss off thus far are the mods...and I dont suspect that we can increase our iggy points from them. ;D

So far matthew is the only person who has an ignore...and I'm not quite willing to go to that extreme. ;)

If I were to ignore you could I take the ignore off? 

I would do it just for fun.  And to see how it worked.   ;) ;D

Plus the fact that I don't particularly care what you say... :P  ;D

Not entirely certain how the ignore function works, can't say I've tried it yet...I'm not about to use it and give someone else a head start over me ;D

Get ready to be ignored! 

Either its too early in the morning for you, or its too early for me.  Because I did not understand your sentence...? 

What did you mean to say?  It was definately a little confusing...?  why would it be a bad thing for someone to get ahead of you, if you don't want to use the function? 

You're making no sense man!!!  haha.

I just did it. 

All it does is not allow me to read your posts/doesn't show your posts to me. 

Instead of print in the box it says "this person is being ignored" or "you have ignored this person"  something like that. 

You can just unignore the person if you want.

LOL...what I mean is that if I ignore someone else, they they will be ignored by more people than I am. I dont want to personally ignore others, but I dont mind being ignored by other people. Being ignored by large numbers of people would just tell me that I'm doing my job and being extra offensive. Plus, if someone ignores me, it places me in a tactically superior position, I can respond to their posts but they will not retaliate.

So when you ignored me, did my posts still show up under the 'recent posts' section of the front page?

Oh, you were quite well ignored for the 2 seconds that I did it - no indication of recent posts, no username on the online section....

The annoying thing was that, after I hit the ignore (and after I hit the un-ignore) the page refreshed to the 1st page of the thread.... 126 pages ago.

Yah I had the same thing happen to me, on both points. 

It said that you posted, just not WHAT you posted...which I find very interesting. 

But yah, bringing you back to the first page...VERY annoying.  Much more than you running your mouth.   ;) :P  (comments directed at GiC...although Cleveland.... ;D)

An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

I think, though, after this last week, that "ignore" is the nickname of this thread!  :D

And now, for something completely different:


Trials for 'bionic' eye implants
By Jonathan Fildes
Science and technology reporter, BBC News, San Francisco

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/6368089.stm

A bionic eye implant that could help restore the sight of millions of blind people could be available to patients within two years.

US researchers have been given the go-ahead to implant the prototype device in 50 to 75 patients.

The Argus II system uses a spectacle-mounted camera to feed visual information to electrodes in the eye.

Patients who tested less-advanced versions of the retinal implant were able to see light, shapes and movement.

"What we are trying to do is take real-time images from a camera and convert them into tiny electrical pulses that would jump-start the otherwise blind eye and allow patients to see," said Professor Mark Humayun, from the University of Southern California.

Retinal implants are able to partially restore the vision of people with particular forms of blindness caused by diseases such as macular degeneration or retinitis pigmentosa.

About 1.5 million people worldwide have retinitis pigmentosa, and one in 10 people over the age of 55 have age-related macular degeneration.

Both diseases cause the retinal cells which process light at the back of the eye to gradually die.

The new devices work by implanting an array of tiny electrodes into the back of the retina.

A camera is used to capture pictures, and a processing unit, about the size of a small handheld computer and worn on a belt, converts the visual information into electrical signals.

These are then sent back to the glasses and wirelessly on to a receiver just under the surface of the front of the eye, which in turn feeds them to the electrodes at the rear.

The whole process happens in real time.



Growing dots

First-generation, low-resolution devices have already been fitted to six patients.

"The longest device has been in for five years," said Professor Humayun.

"It's amazing, even with 16 pixels, or electrodes, how much our first six subjects have been able to do."

Terry Byland, 58, from California was fitted with an implant in 2004 after going blind with retinitis pigmentosa in 1993.

"At the beginning, it was like seeing assembled dots - now it's much more than that," he said.

"When I am walking along the street I can avoid low-hanging branches - I can see the edges of the branches."

Mr Byland is also able to make out other shapes.

"I can't recognise faces, but I can see them like a dark shadow," he said.

1: Camera on glasses views image
2: Signals are sent to hand-held device
3: Processed information is sent back to glasses and wirelessly transmitted to receiver under surface of eye
4: Receiver sends information to electrodes in retinal implant
5: Electrodes stimulate retina to send information to brain

Brain change

The new implant has a higher resolution than the earlier devices, with 60 electrodes.

It is also a lot smaller, about one square millimetre, which reduces the amount of surgery that needs to be done to implant the device.

The technology has now been given the go-ahead by the US Food and Drug Administration to be used in an exploratory patient trial.

This will take place at five centres across America over two years, with 50-75 patients aged over 50.

If successful, the device could be commercialised soon after, costing around $30,000 (£15,000). Other devices could then be developed with higher resolution or a wider field of view, said Professor Humayun.

Future work includes studying the effects the implants have on the brain.

"We are actually studying what happens to the visual cortex over time," said Professor Humayun.

The research was presented at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) annual meeting in San Francisco, US.

Its so funny to watch the "new guys" frantically write down every word he says. 

Ah the poor souls....they don't know any better. 

One time I asked him a question in class and his response was "based on what you've heard me say in the class, what would you answer?"  I almost retorted with "well...since you've said basically nothing for the last month, i'm still not sure how to answer the question" but I didn't....maybe next time though... ;)

I always "got" what he said... But then again I was always a fan of abstract theology.

Well, are you familiar with "The Pirates of Penzance"?  Having Feb 29 as a birthday is an important plot point.  I recommend the movie of it with Kevin Kline as the Pirate King, he's a blast to watch and does the physical comedy quite well, I think

I'm sorry if he's offended your sensibilities by not offering a truly random number generator.

Of course, I'm sure that a random-number generator offends your sensibilities, since it is a tool which uses pure and abstract math to actually produce something...

For my 4,000th post, something new:

Quote from: William Shakespeare
R&J Act V Scene III:
the Prince is speaking
See, what a scourge is laid upon your hate,
That heaven finds means to kill your joys with love.
And I for winking at your discords too
Have lost a brace of kinsmen: all are punish'd.
