If you find yourself melting a little in the heat, chances are you have all the ingredients needed to build your own face-tracking fan.
Today’s downpour notwithstanding, the UK has just experienced its hottest September day since 1911. Here at Pi Towers, we were acutely aware of this. The office roared with the noise from sixty-odd CPU fans at full tilt. The air conditioning conked out. And things got especially bad when we realised that it was buy-one-get-one-free day at the local …

Anyone know if this service works? Or has used this service? (honey)???
If you think you’re already getting the best prices, you’ll be surprised.

Yup. Main reason I just don't bother with Apple anything. Overpriced and old. I think the allure of MacOS X and iOS is getting to be the only thing they have going for them.

Want to learn OpenStack basics? Here's the free--yes, free--class for you.
OpenStack is a great open-source cloud. It has broad industry support. Indeed, it's hard to find a major technology company that doesn't back OpenStack. There's only one little thing wrong with it: It's a nightmare to pick up and deploy. I go to major cloud and open-source conferences a lot.

That's racist.

Sorry, couldn't help myself 😋
 
Many Mexicans are calling for the border wall to keep out Guatemalans, Salvadorans and Hondurans fleeing violence in their own countries.

Literally, after months of jerking around with my PiTop, I finally think its running correctly. Started with the SD card being hosed. Once I figured that out, I came to a battery usage issue that I think got remedied. Either way I am going to claim victory, Baghdad Bob style.

All in all, its a cool toy. But holy ^&*^&^ &^^& #^#$*$) ! The amount of screwing around to get this thing functional... The one trouble ticket (the SD card issue, yeah kinda a noobish to pi's question regarding the no card VGA test screen) took two weeks to get resolved, and I see from last night when I logged in, that it was closed 97 days ago.

I see how some people can use this as their daily driver. Light usage is not bad at all on it. And the battery (when it works for people) lasts forever it seems (12-14 hrs of real usage). The keyboard and trackpad are janky though. Havent had a chance to play with a USB or Bluetooth keyboard yet, but the USB mouse is far better than the trackpad. Strange thing is that they are both USB bus entities. Those not familiar with the design, the PiTop is a laptop RaspberryPi (2 or 3) where there is a board that handles the battery, screen, touchpad, and keyboard and takes the HDMI from the PI and sends it to the LCD. There is a USB cable,HDMI cable and the GPIO cable that are connected up to both this board and the Pi. Weird eh?

I am also looking into what this is actually ideal for. Sofar at the same price, my ASUS Flip chromebook is more usable and not janky, although somewhat less battery life (around 9-10 hrs).

But this is cool nonetheless. I am thinking this is going to be the f-off end table laptop. I can have the charger back there and have it plugged in for when needed. Since the bootup is stupid fast, its about as useful in that situation as a chromebook, but running full Linux (X2go rocks on here).

And on the SBC note, +Joe C. Hecht and +DoorToDoorGeek both have excellent podcasts that they individually do. If you are not aware, you are now. No excuses :P and go follow them, as there is useful data dissemenated daily from each of them.

I have in the box a few other SBCs I haven't toyed wit yet. Got a BananaPi Pro, and an Odroid. I think there are uses for them :D Thinking that the BPP is destined to replace my Netgear router's routing function and curse that proprietary beast into being an AP. That said, I am not certain what I want to run on it. There is no RHEL for it, so that means looking into SuSE flavors or OpenBSD (other crutches that have served me oh so well when RHEL is not an option).

I love Recalbox, it's a great system for real retro gaming as opposed to hipster pixels. #Retrogaming

The best men's groomers I have had the pleasure of patronizing. And the only in town that hasn't butchered my beard. I find the pricing quite fair, service excellent, and a rather flexible appointment system.

Quite a pleasant place, although it gets crowded fast with how much they have managed to pack in that storefront. When I say alot, there is ALOT of variety, including seasonal stuff. If you can think of it its there. The one negative truly is get 5 people in there and its a crowded zoo. As for the candy quality, I personally only had some of my purchases, the bulk (literally) was for a few friends, which never complained about it, rather asked where I got the volumes/oddball find each time. Their chocolate bars are great, and of course its hard to jack up a gummy worm, or milkballs.

Very nice shop, with talented staff. Although, I generally have my firearm choices made prior to stopping in, they have helped nudge me from time to time. Great indoor range. Shot pistol and rifle here.

I went for their 4th of July special, and was very pleased. They have a vast selection of locomotives and cars to view, including some very old equipment. The staff is rather knowledgeable and well versed on the what, why, and history of all the equipment.

Great group of people. Called and got great service, promptly showed up to tow my vehicle away. Definitely recommend, and will use (God forbid) in the future.

Great attraction for kids. Has a roller coaster, boat ride, archery, cork shooter fun, slingshot shooting, merry go round, a kiddie train, a live action show, and pony rides. The museum was pretty thorough too. For $15, I can't complain one bit. Very nice staff that did a great job acting too.
