The MATRIX (of life)
This award winning fantastic 3D animation, from XVIVO/Harvard, shows a journey through the microscopic world of a cell, illustrating mechanisms that allow a white blood cell to sense its surroundings and respond to an external stimulus.

There is a real downside to working with a walking desk that the industry hasn't fully acknowledged. 

When you aren't sitting down, the cat cannot jump up onto your lap and lie there enjoying her human heat-source.  So instead, said cat will jump up on the desk and try to annoy you into picking her up by covering the monitor or batting at the cursor on the screen.

This makes the merge window "interesting". At least I haven't bought into the touch-screen crazy - another "improvment" to technology that people clearly didn't think all the way through wrt cat ownership.

Bringing Star Trek to life: LCARS home automation with Arduino and Raspberry Pi
http://adafru.it/b100872

This LCARS home automation from YouTube user boltszmann138 a trekkies dream come true!

…I came to the conclusion that QT works fine for me. There are two programms running:

First, there is “ha_interface” on the raspberry which on the one hand connects to the arduino via usb and provides a tcp server for clients on the other hand. Clients can request sensor values by sending “request:sensortype:sensorid” over a simple QTcpSocket. If the arduino sends an interrupt (for example: reed contact 1 is now open), ha_interface sends a broadcast message like “broadcast:reed1:opened” to all connected clients. Parsing of these commands can easily be done via the QString::split(“:”) function. The biggest problem was: I dont want the clients to poll for the reed contact state, since they change very seldom. On the other hand, I didnt want to miss that event. So I had to find a way how recognize an interrupt (by emitting a signal) in the serial usb connection. This gave me the answer: http://www.webalice.it/fede.tft/seria… (part 5) and http://fedetft.wordpress.com/2010/04/… . Several connected clients can talk to each other via the interface and share for example their local “red alert on” or “system locked” bool variables.

Apparently homeopathy can't cure ignorance.
One of my pet peeves (and yes, I've got a lot of them) is how my grocery store that carries high-quality groceries also is all crazy about homeopathy. Apparently there s a sad overlap between "I like my foods not overly processed" and "I am a big moron when it comes to medicine".

Guys, Homeopathy is a scam. And when even the manufacturers know that and try to make their products actually do something by adding real medicine into it, you have to ask yourself just how stupid you have to be to believe these jokers/scammers.
