comment How do I fix input lag on my new HDTV
70ms is less than 1/10 of one second. The OP said he is experiencing about half a second of input lag, which would be 500ms. There must be more to this.

comment What are the objective arguments against immunizations for infants and children?
@James, you are absolutely correct to say that people generally have a poor grasp of risk; consider the fear of flying, for example. I agree with the consensus that with few exceptions, vaccination is a net positive. However, I also believe that when we heap scorn on people who ask questions or express concerns, it's like pouring gasoline on a fire. Questions and concerns need to be addressed, not ignored. I would like to point out that staunch anti-vax people hate on Robert Sears with just as much vitriol as many staunch pro-vax people do. Why? He doesn't share their opinion exactly.

comment What is the likely meaning of this character sequence? A&#C
After reading your question, I decided to check and see if # and & appear in valid data, and sure enough, they appear as abbreviations for "number" and "and", respectively. I think that perhaps I'm being baffled by a simple typo by a user.

comment What are the objective arguments against immunizations for infants and children?
@luispedro, I agree that vaccination is a big net plus for public health, but to say that there are no objective arguments against vaccination, as if there is no objective risk, is bunk. All medical therapies carry risk; even aspirin can cause fatal reactions in some patients. I fear that asserting that vaccines have no risk (which is what your answer seems to imply) will drive people to listen to the anti-vaccine crowd.

comment Reading in a local csv file in javascript?
I also wrote a short beginner's guide to Javascript that you might find useful: danielsadventure.info/Javascript/Javascript.html. In it, I point out some of the differences between Javascript and other languages.

I would further suggest that when you look up these methods, search for the Mozilla Developer Network (MDN) reference. W3Schools is popular, but know for some inaccurate information. Search Google for Javascript [methodname] MDN. Also, please be sure to up-vote the answers you find helpful.

A million times what @PeteT said. This 4000 character limit really bit me a few years ago.
