+The Mars Society was running a student Mars rover competition in Manchester today; they had entrants from all over (I chatted to some from Canada and Poland) Lots of Pi's in evidence on the chassis (The Canadian one had a stack fo them) - I think the rules were that they were limited to one Wifi channel which gave some of them a challenge with video, especially in the centre of Manchester with lots of wifi traffic. They also wouldn't have the challenge of trees or getting across a water feature to the mars sand pit.

Looks like +Vladimir Pantelic has scared STM into producing DIP boards; http://www.eetimes.com/document.asp?doc_id=1330094 (Digikey are listing them at £7.49 each)
STMicroelectronics has introduced a development ecosystem for its latest low-power, high-performance STM32L4 microcontrollers and expanded the series with five product lines comprising a range of package and memory-density options.

Just eating a piece here right now! I quite like it, and it's impossible to binge on the stuff and not advisable to eat it quickly. The perfect sweet for someone with no will power, like me.

It's fun when you trip over the same function 3 times in a month after having never looked at it before.  I've worked on this code base for ~2.5 years and never looked at this corner; then ~1 month ago some one asks me about an assert in it; then last week someone hits the same assert in a completely different case; then today someone asks me about the same code.
This code hasn't changed in 5 years.

migration/savevm.c:620: vmstate_register_with_alias_id: Assertion `!se->compat || se->instance_id == 0' failed   - you get it when two devices (unexpectedly) end up with the same name in the migration code .

I'd thought cnt's were all funky research for transistor replacements, but looks like there are closer, simpler applications they're already being used in.
A second wave of CNT consolidation is likely because some key markets are expected to take off faster than others and the rewards are not prone to be spread evenly.

There's this fence I walk past every few days which seems to host a really great mix of insects; I don't know why it's got such a variety here - the route takes me past quite a bit of greenery but this short (10-20m?) length has most of the cute insects.

yes because they just can't see what you're trying to take a picture of - so what's special about a fence?

The Allen Institute has a series of videos from a conference it's just put up; just watched this one so far - very good on the state of neural prosthetics for dealing with broken spines etc
