> about 94% of pregnancy cases handled by PP end in abortions.

humanrebar, stop lying[1].

In another comment, you praised sceptics and expressed interest in promoting understanding and finding compromise, yet you post lies and cite bogus sources to support your lies. Shameful.

I can buy that the 95% number is overstating things. But please focus on my original point; it's disingenuous to imply that abortion is not at the core of Planned Parenthood's mission. Even the fact-checking article (a little light on new facts, but I can understand its point) you posted says:

"Not all of Planned Parenthood approximately 700 clinics offer prenatal services because prenatal care is not Planned Parenthood's focus."

That's the point behind the number. If even simple prenatal care (vitamins, education, referrals) were part of the focus of Planned Parenthood, they would be tracked and we would see them in the metrics. Even the PoliFact article doesn't address the underlying point... that abortion is a (if not 'the') core part of Planned Parenthood's mission.

Cloud66 was hacked in May 2013[1][2] and shortly afterwards, they scrubbed all references to the attack from their site. Pathetic.

They're not the first to get hacked, but covering it up is definitely concerning.


What I like most about Magit is staging, unstaging, and reverting hunks.


Since you're a huge note-taking nerd, I assume you evaluated Org-mode. What didn't you like about it?


I have a personal wiki powered by Org-mode[1] that includes several thousand documents containing the notes I've taken. I keep all the documents open all the time, and I use Ido[2] to access any document in under two seconds. A high-speed note-taking solution like this is necessary for me because I refer to and take notes up to hundreds of times per day. When I last evaluated note-taking solutions (2012?), no solution was both fast and feature-rich like Org-mode.

One example of a feature that Org-mode has that the other solutions I evaluated didn't was support for plain text spreadsheets[3]. This feature is very helpful to me because many of my notes include small sets of tabular data that I strongly prefer to include directly in my wiki documents rather than in a separate Excel or LibreOffice spreadsheet.

What is the directory structure you use for managing all of your org files?

I've been converting my note taking to Org-mode over the past few months and am still trying to find the ideal directory/file layout to put things in.


Do you have a recommendation for editing your notes on mobile devices?


> GOP health care policy strongly favors small business owners.

Most small business owners that I know would prefer single-payer health care to avoid the distraction of employer-sponsored coverage. Also, the people I've known who have expressed interest in quitting their jobs to start their own business cite health care as one of the main reasons for why they've been unwilling to pull the trigger, and this is especially true for those who have children. But the people I know may not represent the majority of small business owners.


I agree with you, and have been tooting the horn about health care and entrepreneurship on HN for years, but most American small business owners hate the employee mandate and don't favor single-payer.

No, bozarking deleted his account in January 2010.


To the people recommending white noise, be careful. I developed tinnitus from listening to white noise. Now whenever I hear white noise, including fans, etc., there is a high-pitched ringing in my left ear. Not fun.


Wuala hasn't updated their social accounts or blog since January, and recent comments by Wuala's users seem to be mostly negative. Does Wuala have a future?


That i cannot answer. Late last year they killed the free service and gave everyone time to either move their data or become a paying customer. They had a "whatever plan you pay for we'll double the storage" offer on. I only use it mostly for moving files between the 3 main OSes and some document storage. I found that I was quite happy with the free service so why not pay and continue using it?

They must have had their reasons for stopping the free service, probably financial, so what happens now I don't know. How many free customers converted to paid?

I mentioned Wuala mainly because they claim to take seriously security of your data and because it works well on OS X, Win & Linux.
