Oh wow. Yet another reason to prefer "vanilla" Linux kernels over the vendor's own hacked-up version. Not only will it be much newer, but the chances of it doing spectacularly stupid things like this is greatly reduced.
There's been a lot of buzz about a root exploit in Linux 3.4 kernel for Allwinner H3/H83T SoCs found by linux-sunxi & armbian developers in the last few days. Since the kernel for H3 / H83T is stuck to 3.4, and not always updated on the vast majority of hardware platforms, it's quite likely ...

+Thorsten Johannvorderbrueggen​: There's a fine line between debugging code and a cyber vulnerability. Should never debug using blatant crack code like that.

Holy moly, so much work just to make a little tray. But the videography and editing is so good!

Such a shame he sounds like a presenter from Gardening Australia...

I watched this video the other day, the quality and intricacy of his work is mesmerising. The videography and editing is outstanding, to the point where all of these 7-12 minute videos just fly by. I have now watched all of his videos and I am keen for the next video to be uploaded..

Here's another server-class ARM board and surprisingly it isn't ARMv8. I'm sure it'll still be pricey though.

The article includes a charbax video, with the usual issues. Skip to around 1:30 to hear him talk to a Linaro guy about how they're planning to use the board.
Huawei D01 specifications: Processor. HiSilicon SoC with16 x ARM Cortex-A15 CPU Core @ max. 1.5GHz (up to 84000 DMIPS); Support for CPU configuration as AMP/SMP; Configurable Big or Little endian. Default: Little endian. System Memory – 2x 64bit DDR3 DRAM Dual Inline Memory up to 1600 MHz, ...

Looks like an ideal replacement to regulate servers.

On the same automotive/GLBT issue, there's a business in Lewiston, Idaho called 'The Tranny Shack.' 

They fix transmissions, and have since the 1970s.

No, they don't think their name is funny.

Here's a short time-lapse video of clouds this afternoon taken from my balcony. I had to stop shooting and bring the gear inside because the clouds started doing what clouds often do - produce rain.

This is again made with photos every 15 seconds, but the clouds are moving by very quickly. In future I should set the interval a little shorter when there's stormy conditions.

I haz a new camera! It's a Pentax LX.

Why it'd better be great:

Specs:

It looks like I'll have to get a set of "Super Pro A" connectors for my Op/Tech Envy strap. I have a set of the "B" connectors for my Pentacon Six, but they slip off the LX's lugs. The P6 is a little too heavy for the Envy strap, so I might get a Pro strap at the same time.

I'm also suddenly interested in getting a TTL flash...

Dang You write like me!
Far as in "I haz a new camera" not saying it's a bad thing!.—but moving on!, yeah it would be better too have heavier strap or a pro-strap,for those types of cameras!.
Actually the "Pentax" cameras and the "Nikon" cameras are very reliable!,
Well in my opinion anyways!.
Well good luck finding, in what You're looking for!. :)

My Cubietruck got a bit of an upgrade today with a  16GB Sandisk Extreme Pro microSD card. I've been running it on an old 8GB class 8 card for the last 5 months and hoped this would give it a good speed increase.

Well the Bonnie++ benchmark did show a speedup, but not by much. And hdparm reports a "buffered disk read" speed of only 21 MB/s, far short of the claimed ~95 MB/s on the packet. I'm thinking the MMC driver isn't properly detecting and setting up the right speed. Time to dive into the source code...

There's a nice car yard down on the highway that's lit up at night with powerful lights. I've previously shot some of the cars after rain with fast film (Delta 3200). So last month, after rain at night, I headed down with a tripod and much slower film.

The Doctor Who episode 'Blink' was on ABC 2 this evening. After it I did a search for 'weeping angels' on YouTube and found this yogscast about a Minecraft mod. I've watched a few of their other videos before and they're very entertaining. This one is a bit short and mostly involves them freaking out at the angels. Enjoy.

A documentary about Rolls-Royce jet engines. Fascinating stuff.

It's split into four parts, so be sure to find them in the list of suggested videos.

Oh great, we're getting full-body scanners at our airports too. But unlike the U.S., we won't be given the option of a grope to avoid a dose of radiation.

As if I need any more reason to dislike flying.
