Now there's a good idea. What every tortoise needs.
It's truly incredible what 3D printing is doing, not only for human beings, but for the animal kingdom as well. Every month here at 3DPrint.com we cover num

So New Mexico has another museum. And one to visit. Good to know.
On this day in history, 1954, the Sonic Wind No. 1 rocket sled was tested on rails for the first time in Alamogordo, New Mexico. Six rockets produced 27,000 pounds of thrust. Air Force Lt. Col. John Stapp rode the rocket sled at Holloman ...

I posted about a used Nook Simple Touch because its Android based and almost easy to root. Which is why I'm still trying to find one of the dratted things. However I will accept a used Kindle 3 device. So how many of the members here recall where to find a used one of them for sale in local stores?

Can someone within this group of ours point me towards a used electronic devices store that happens to have a Nook Simple Touch available? While trying to get a recalcitrant design to work that probably won't be connected to anything running Android I had a flash of insight.

And remembered that the thing runs it inside, and I do have something that can be configured to act as an I/O platform for the Android family.

What else can go wrong here?
When vandals sliced a fiber-optic cable in the Arizona desert last month, they did more than time-warp thousands of people back to an era before computers, credit cards or even phones. They exposed a glaring vulnerability in the nation's Internet infrastructure: no backup systems in many places ...

How many of us here recognize that scene?
On this day in history, 1970, Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) introduced the PDP-11 minicomputer. The series of 16-bit minicomputers were sold by DEC from 1970 well into the 1990s. Due to its additional general-purpose registers ...

However if we are indeed including mechanical computers, then the one Babbage was working on and came extremely close to finishing predates it by about one-hundred years. In fact rumors abound that he did build a prototype of both "engines". And this year marks the Centennial of NACA the advisory agency that predated NASA. There's a scene in the historical pages who who show a an individual running a contraption who worked similar to the things from Babbage.

Would everyone I know in the US please sign. And those of you I don't. Especially since the NFL does not want to believe that each Superbowl game demolishes its host city because nothing that goes on there helps it. Look what happened when it was in NJ, despite the fact that the NY teams were not in it, the fun was here, the games were there. And mass transit broke down.
I just took action to demand that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell testify before Congress to justify the NFL’s tax-exempt status. I think you should, too.
