Just so many things I could say about this… you really mean to tell me a group of people sat around a table (or beers) and decided this was a good idea?
 
10-Engine Electric GL-10 Plane Prototype Takes Off | NASA Langley
May 1, 2015: A team at NASA's Langley Research Center is developing a concept of a battery-powered plane that has 10 engines and can take off like a helicopter and fly efficiently like an aircraft. The prototype, called Greased Lightning or GL-10, is currently in the design and testing phase. The initial thought was to develop a 20-foot wingspan (6.1 meters) aircraft powered by hybrid diesel/electric engines, but the team started with smaller versions for testing, built by rapid prototyping.

During a recent spring day the engineers took the GL-10 to test its wings at a military base about two hours away from NASA Langley. The remotely piloted plane has a 10-foot wingspan (3.05 meters), eight electric motors on the wings, two electric motors on the tail and weighs a maximum of 62 pounds (28.1 kilograms) at take off. This photograph captures the GL-10 prototype taking off in hover mode like a helicopter.

Client site hacked with italy-languishes.php. Heard of it?

Just spent hours with a client trying to track down problem with WordPress site. A file called italy-languishes.php is in the root, along with a malformed odd php file, and the .htaccess has been completely rewritten. Can't find any information on this hack and not willing to plunge in without knowing what I'm doing. With no info, we'll call in the big guns in the morning, but thought someone out there might be familiar with this.

Torn - Two Minds of Joy

Fantastic to see books trending on g+. The love of literacy is expanding not dying. Love it.

Also joy at seeing great thoughts and feelings going out around the world to the Nepalese and others impacted by this horrific disaster. We are indeed a global village.

Let's start rewriting our own book and act like one.
