Only PARTIALLY hydrogenated. Damn. These people never do something all the way, do they?

The image below is what happens if you leave a Cheese Puff on a piece of notebook paper overnight. This is because the cheap bastards are only PARTIALLY hydrogenating their vegetable oil.

For those who never bothered to look this up, the big chemical difference between good old fashioned animal fat and vegetable fats (oils) comes down to the number of hydrogen atoms in the molecule. The result of this lower amount of hydrogen atoms ends up being that vegetable fat is a liquid at room temperature while animal fat is a solid at that temperature. When they "Hydrogenate" vegetable oil, they make it more like animal fat.

Aside from being yummy, this also prevents the horrors that you see documented below. Come on guys, get this right! We can't be having Cheese Puff's ruining our paperwork. Oh I know these healthy eating wackos claim that by making it more like animal fat it isn't as healthy for you. Here's the thing....they're not living any longer. They're just so boring to be around that it seems like its longer. I am a human. I have incisors for tearing apart meat because I am by nature an omnivore. We know herbivores eat vegetables and carnivores eat meat. Humans, as omnivores eat everything. This includes Cheese Puffs which are nether animal nor vegetable. They are omnibles.

Thanks to the fantastic work by John Curtis and his team, the node.js integration with Domino is going to be getting a rich security model. What we know is that a user's authorizations will be respected through the node.js application to the Domino server -- including reader names, ACLs, Roles, and so on. The way ......
