Sadly, the coffee shop near my train station is hooked up to the same supply.

Yes, of course a nurse at an individual surgery could be bribed. Or a student doing work experience etc.
But they would only have access to the locally held records, and the blackmailer/other would have to know which surgery to start at.
If someone with access to the spine was blackmailed/bribed or otherwise persuaded to share their access, *all* records would be compromised, audited or not.
Hi there Montgomery,
"This so-called paradox was beaten to death years ago by Herbert Winful. If the Germans would bother to keep up with the field, they'd know that neither their observation is new, nor their explanation."
Yep, that'll be the paper I linked to in the story.
@ John Donovan: No, you can't, because of the June 1953 ruling in the subcommittee meeting on Causality and the Bakerloo Line. It was Sir. John Moffat who made the final decision that faster than light travel in Mornington Crescent would ultimately collapse the whole tube network, as all the staff would take the day off to visit their great grandchildren. Sorry.
It was cutting edge at the time, but basic text book stuff now. I skimmed some of the papers, but not all. Four of the papers were in French (which I am afraid I don't speak). I didn't have time to read the others in detail.
But from what I did see, they were testing how effective various different materials were as moderators, for instance. They were really doing the leg work of figuring out how to build something that could sustain a reaction for long enough to be useful as a power source without going BANG in a really unhelpful, and frankly messy, way.
I'm hoping the Royal Soc will put them online at some point.
