Vitamin D and Tooth Decay

Here's an article that adds to the miracle of vitamin D. I have linked previously to the text about importance of vitamin D in prevention of Winter flu/cold (here). Now I've found an article on Science Blog that writes about clinical trials confirming that vitamin D helps prevent caries / tooth decay.
This vitamin mostly appears by magic in your skin, under the influence of exposure to the Sun.

Goodbye Windows XP

My parents' place, until today a home to Windows XP for the last nn years, has been facelifted. While the hardware is pretty much the same, the software cover is brand new. Instead of unsupported operating system, an old Athlon 2 now runs latest Fedora 18 Linux pretty happily. The system is much more responsive despite 2.5MB/s disk throughput. This was quite an overkill under XP. I haven't used this PC in years and only now I see how painfully slow it was to use. After all, it's been about 10 years. The interesting part is that the hardware (dual-core CPU with 2GB RAM and 100GB of painfully slow disk drive) is pretty OK for Internet browsing, and audio/video calls. But it still feels slower than a dual-core Samsung Galaxy S2 phone.
Another kid on the block is an iPhone 3GS. Currently used as a remote handset and a messaging client with Google+, Vtok, and Skype.
The era of Linux has begun at my old home. I'm really keen to see how it will work out for typical household use with my parents as users.

Internet TV & Documentaries

The time has come when we can choose our own viewing content. There is so much of it available on the Internet that we can watch what we want, when we want it. The TV channels are getting next to obsolete. Here is a few sources of content I use...
Documentary films:
  • Top Documentary Films (link)
  • Journeyman (link)
  • Top Documentaries (link)
  • Documentary Addict (link)
  • TED (link)
  • (link)
  • PBS (link)
  • InfoWars (link)
  • University of California TV (link)
  • Documentary Heaven (link)
  • Documentary Log (link)
  • Watch Documentary (link)
  • World Mysteries (link)
  • Cosmos Documentaries (link)
  • DocMasters (link), A.A.
Note that some of the sites above simply link to documentary films freely available on the Internet and therefore have a lot of the same contents.

Food documentaries:

Recently I installed the Castles of Europe theme for Windows and was impressed by the images, wondering about the locations of the castles.

The two posts that list the image locations are here and here.

In relation to that, Wikipedia contains a page with the list of castles in Austria (here) and Bosnia and Herzegovina (here).

One of the most impressive castles is Hochosterwitz Castle (link). Here is its location on the map (link).
