can you get injuries from elliptical trainers?

A recent conversation advised (possibly anecdotal) info that elliptical trainers can create foot numbness (it happens to me too) and lead to hip problems. This is the first time I have heard of the potential for 'hip problems' - does anyone else know anything about it? Is it a myth? I am a nearly 40 mum keen to get back on my trainer...

Computer makers using standard parts?

Do any of the large computer makers like Dell or HP use standard parts for any of their desktop lines? I'm looking for a new computer, but would rather not purchase one that still uses proprietary parts like power supplies and mother boards.

Do-not-call legalities?

Several years ago, I asked a telemarketer to be placed on their "Do not call list." The telemarketer hung up on me before I could ask for a copy of their do-not-call policy, but I did not receive any calls for several years. Now they are calling again incessantly. I have not answered any of their calls. Are they in violation of the FCC's telemarketing laws, since I have technically asked to be put on their company-specific do not call list?

Linguistic study of math/physics equation "language"

I was thinking the other day about "all Greek to me!" as I was reading a physics book w/equations (using the Greek symbols) And equations are a sort of language, of course. So I wondered if there's some sort of linguist who's ever looked at the grammar or syntax of math/physics equations and tried to derive, whatever the hell it is linguists derive! Does this sound like something anyone has heard of? If so, have any links?
