Religion

Feb 2013 Baby's Death Renews Debate Over a Circumcision Ritual, about orthodox jews in New York. After a nice dinner I brought this up with my friend Seldon who thought it was an urban legend and that is why I put the link here. We agreed that it is likely not a problem with the normal jews in New York.

May 2013 Here is a registry edit to save and run which might turn off spyware installation when updating Java on Windows. Is discussed at superuser.

So as long as the checkbox fools enough users to install anyway I expect the spyware disabling feature to be kept.
