Ultra-Violence Through the Ages

Can anyone recommend a good historical examination of literary and performed works throughout all of human history that stood out from their contemporaries for containing exceptionally violent/disturbing imagery, even for their own time? (more 'recent' examples being Titus Andronicus, the various Penny Dreadfuls, de Sade, Milton, etc) [more inside]

Dog nail trimming options: EXTREME edition

So. Our dog will not let anyone trim her nails. The groomer can't do it, the vet can't do it, and we can't do it. Her reaction is so extreme that she's seriously a danger to herself, and as a result, she only has her nails clipped when she's under sedation for something else (teeth cleaning, for one). Looking at this older Ask Me post, I'm considering trying a Dremel, once we've talked to the Vet (time for another dental cleaning). Is there anything newer, or further advice that fearful-dog owners can add? [more inside]

All my base stations belong to someone else

Lately when I turn on my Mac, it detects an Airport Extreme base station. I don't know where the station is; I don't have one and I don't know the password to the one being detected. The Airport Extreme is chosen instead of my home network for internet access, and even when I manually cancel it and choose my own network, I sometimes lose connectivity as the computer returns to the Airport Extreme as a default connection. Lately, this is also happening with a PC and a Kindle, making it hard on all devices to choose my home network and keep it as a default.

Weird Wireless

Apple Airport WDS network with two devices: a Extreme base and a relay Express. My Powerbook connects ok. My PCs connect to the Extreme base fine. They can also SEE the Express relay, but they can't connect to it. I think the base and relay have identical configurations so I don't know why. [more inside]

Examples of Adaptation of Farming to Extreme Climates

I'm looking for historical accounts and analysis of the adaptation of farming to extreme climates. A few weeks ago I spent a relaxed Sunday afternoon learning about early settlement, farming, and society in Iceland. Fascinating stuff! I now have the opportunity to research the adaptation/failure of farming in extreme climates for a term paper. [more inside]

Food safety for canned goods and extreme temperatures

Is well-canned food that has sat around in extreme temperatures safe? I recently bought some canned goods, let them sit in the back seat of my car in 100+ degree temperatures, and when I went to pick them out, they were painfully hot to the touch. Would this alter their safety for consumption?

Airport configuration problem

I can't configure my Airport Extreme. I've been having trouble with my Airport Extreme holding a DSL connection - so attempted to change configuration but couldn't access it (says there was an error in reading configuration). I've reset the Airport (holding the reset button for five seconds) and can see the airport with the Apple assigned name. I use the password "public" but still get the same error message. Can't get at the configuration page with either the airport setup or Airport utility software. [more inside]

Was This Dodgeball?

The number one movie last week was a comedy about dodgeball that has a lot of people my age waxing nostalgic about elementary school. There also seems to be a new televised Extreme Dodgeball "league". There's just one problem: None of these people are playing or talking about the game I remember as "dodgeball" from my childhood.
