Pretty keen, and of possible interest to crafty friends.

Not sure how I missed this. Jim gives a great class, highly recommended. This is a bit different than the technique from the class I took but looks interesting.

So it probably goes without saying that I'm pretty well pissed off at my new computer by now.  The "not properly shut down" means "powered itself off without warning."  And the fact that Alienware isn't saying "OH MY GAWD WE'LL PUT YOUR NEW COMPUTER IN THE MAIL A WEEK AGO" is not improving my general attitude about the situation.

Well, new computer arrived with no warning this morning, and no problems so far... cross your fingers for me.  One VM image is proving difficult to transfer off without the old computer dying, but I'll probably just rebuild it instead since I'm installing stuff all day today anyhow.

If the movie Memento, the book Snow Crash, and the console game Prototype had a baby, it'd be the PC game "Remember Me"... plus the graphics are good.  Top shelf story in an action-y game so far, though I'm just starting into it and I've heard the plot is pretty linear with little replay value.

Whoa. I know two of the three, and I don't know if that's a recommendation or not :).

I don't generally replay games, so I'm OK with lack of replay value.

For those of you who like me have a nice big monitor and don't want to make-believe it's a tablet.

Personally I find a useful litmus test for what to keep or not is, "by the time I expect to use it, would it be cheaper to replace it because I tossed it or have spent my time and energy digging around looking for it or keeping track that I have it?"  How much of your hobby time do you want to spend rummaging around in drawers on the off chance that you might have a three dollar part?  Thanks for all the great MeMo vids Steve, looking forward to the entertainment and ideas for 2015!

I didn't make mine exactly like this, but pretty close....

Machine learning and octopi, what a great combination.

The concept of this game is amazing, and the graphical style is probably going to win some kind of award, but as a cat person who's lost several in too-recent memory I am not emotionally prepared to play a game where your kittens' lives are what's at stake.

Wish we got this much snow every year.  Colorado's getting hammered, I hear -- should be good for NM rivers this summer.

I feel the idiocy of Windows 8 is revealed with the purest clarity in the calculator application.

On my smartphone, with a 1920x1080 resolution screen, I hate the calculator application.  It's impoverished to the point that I lose sympathy for starving children.  It's a four-function nightmare in the same amount of space as my much more functional and far older TI.

And on my new W8.1 desktop computer, it uses THE SAME APPLICATION.  And because it's a metro app it wants to be full screen.  On a 4k monitor.

F--- you, Microsoft.  Whoever thought it was a good idea to install that on my drive as part of a desktop OS should lose his job so you can  hire someone to make a few decent applications.

I agree.  It sucks.  I was able to find the non-full screen calculator hiding in the bizarre application menu, and I put it on my task bar, because it's hard it figure out which one is which.  Annoying for sure.

One done.  Two more just have knobs and sealer left, just need to find the time to wrap them up.

So I took over this lab and it's been a while since it was cleaned.  Lots of stuff wasn't worth saving but here are a couple of real gems.
