LastPass has a nice tool for determining which passwords you should change in response to the Heartbleed exploit, and when. You can go to Tools, Security Check to check it out. If you don't use LastPass this is one more reason to look into it.

The mealworm colony we keep to supplement our chickens' diets. It's exactly as wiggly and gross as it looks here.

It has. There are tons of larvae in the bedding, though, so the whole thing just sort of writhes all the time.

I just found this when looking for a way to sync +Jeanene Burke's Google Calender with my iPhone. It's a Google page that lets you select calendars to sync with your Apple device.

Midnight is just going to be too late for me tonight. I saw the eclipse starting, and at 10 past 11 the moon has a clear bite taken out of it, but I can't stay up for the full Monty.

You can use http://www.timeanddate.com to find local viewing info for tonight's lunar Eclipse. I wish it was a little earlier so I could keep the boy awake with good conscious!

No, I couldn't stay up. It was up to about 20% when I gave up, so it was still pretty cool.

Opening the petals on the Apache Point Observatory's telescope (or maybe taking aim at Alderaan...)

First time he was tall enough to do Autopia at Disneyland solo. I'm happy and worried about how much he loved that taste of freedom!

Bouyant air turbine for producing electricity in remote areas. Probably not something I could get zoned for in the suburbs.
 
World's Highest Wind Turbine Will Hover Above Alaska

Altaeros Energies will launch its high-altitude floating wind turbine south of Fairbanks. With the wind turbine, power price an be reduced to $0.18 per kilowatt-hour, which is about half the price of off-grid electricity in Alaska.

Altaeros’ Buoyant Airborne Turbine (BAT) is an inflatable, helium-filled ring floating at a height of 300 meters. It can be deployed in under 24 hours, because it does not require cranes or underground foundations.

BAT has a power capacity of 30 kilowatts and will create enough energy to power about 12 homes. Its primary aim is to serve far-flung villages, military bases, mines, or disaster zones.

The +CMS Experiment has shared a very interesting article from the Guardian regarding the uncertain mass of the Higgs Boson (Insert joke about being uncertain of your own mass here)
 
How wide is a Higgs?

In accord with Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle, short-lived particles have uncertain mass. So the Higgs boson, which gives mass to other particles, is uncertain about its own mass. New results from the +CMS Experiment at +CERN's LHC have started to tell us how uncertain!
