Pretty cool stuff. 
 
Wow. This is one of the most amazing things I have seen in a while. It is SO fast, and leaves smooth (whole) objects instead of many layers of thin filaments. Absolutely stunning.

Great find, I can imagine this evolving into a full-color process. Reshared from the OP.

DRAM security flaw and exploit.
 
This is crazy stuff. I'd recommend anyone who cares about security of their systems to read this.

I don't know, ECC is a good thing, but not immune to rowhammer as such, from what I can understand. It takes a hell of a lot more tries, but it's just down to CPU time. Hackers can afford to be patient. You would need some sort of protection above just the bit layer, more than ECC offers anyway.

Address-space randomization sounds like it may very well make it near impossible to use the exploit. What other ways of protection are possible? Striped memory? Ways to detect suspicious writing to memory?

Just meta data + the whole enchilada?

+Martin Andersson 'defining the contours of the enchilada'. What a nice turn of phrase. Edit to add: Meaning that I am so very, very, going to steal it.

Evolution
Cool, my computer just got something to do with its idle cycles for the rest of the day.
 
This is way more fun than seems reasonable. This program uses a simple genetic algorithm to evolve random two-wheeled shapes into cars over generations. From what I can see it is based purely on random mutation* of parameters where the one with the best performing "phenotype" is preserved and copied to the next generation.

Anyway, try running it in a background tab for a few hours.

* Some genetic algorithms go further than this by also "cross breeding" the best performers (ie by making a hybrid parameter set using bits of each parent). Presumably, you can get better designs faster this way because you can explore the solution space without necessarily getting trapped in nearby but sub-optimal solutions.

+Maximilian Montserrat​​ thanks, I rarely use Java but I'd be interested to take a peek anyways. Honestly the algorithms used here were much simpler than I expected, yet most likely enough for my purpose. Without going into details, I suspect my main problem is going to be to measure the success of each individual without human inspection.

Zoetrope Sculptures



'These are 3-D printed sculptures designed to animate when spun under a strobe light. The placement of the appendages is determined by the same method nature uses in pinecones and sunflowers. The rotation speed is synchronized to the strobe so that one flash occurs every time the sculpture turns 137.5º—the golden angle. If you count the number of spirals on any of these sculptures you will find that they are always Fibonacci numbers.'

http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2015/01/fascinating-3d-printed-fibonacci-zoetrope-sculptures/
These 3d-printed zoetrope sculptures were designed by John Edmark, and they only animate when filmed under a strobe light or with the help of a camera with an extremely short shutter speed. He shares about the project: These are 3-D printed sculptures designed to animate when spun under a s

The short video clip in the linked article is way more compelling than might be suggested by the headline / short description. 'Magically lifelike' might do it more justice. Thanks for posting.

Wait what?

I tried to get the monkey off my back, but there was no weaseling out of this.

You've almost certainly seen this crop up in your Twitter feed more than once.

I hope this gets sorted soon

To anyone with ADD/ADHD planning to visit Japan. You are going to have to manage without your Ritalin and Adderall, there are potentially very serious results from bringing or sending any form of stimulants into the country. Japanese prison is not a place you will want to visit.

Japanese police officers arrested Carrie Russell on suspicion of smuggling amphetamines after finding Adderall in a shipment of household goods she sent from South Korea.

+Greg Metcalfe​, the article is lacking a bit on details. I wonder for instance if the contents was clearly and correctly marked on the customs declaration. If it was, I sort of think customs is overreacting, if not, it is still relatively easy to imagine this being a result of carelessness, or forgetfulness.
I'm more surprised that the physician mother didn't think twice to ship it.

Not too shabby for 56 cat drawings.
 
We just made Kickstarter history.  Exploding Kittens is the first campaign to cross the 200,000 backer mark.

Billboard Crash

Well that's the official explanation anyways, as it was difficult to get away with the weather balloon story this time ;).

This took me a lot longer to get than it should have.
I'll blame it on being a bit stunned by the 1299NOK price for an Oslo-Bankok flight.

Finally 'got' it after coincidentally enlarging image size in my browser. Did that to better view an xkcd image being re-shared here on G+, about Internet addiction and Star Wars. Seeing the city names made all the difference on this post.
