Props to the first person who draws a DIP socket. I'll draw the front side bus.
 

Circuit Scribe is a rollerball pen that writes with conductive silver ink. It makes creating circuits as easy as doodling.

SWEET!!

Of course, it will then be another 394 years before it's available on Netflix...but the clock can't start until it's been run on the Beeb.

There must be some dust in the air. Or someone's cutting onions.

And, because I'm a new dad and I can't help myself, I took a bunch of pictures of Elodie propped up on the Boppy for some "tummy time" (apparently, since They started recommending infants be laid on their backs to sleep, there's been an epidemic of babies with flat spots on the back of their heads - so now They recommend giving babies as much "tummy time" as possible to help ameliorate Flat Head).

This almost makes me want one of my own.  Your recent post re: bottle rotation cured me.
However, that is definitely a most excellent nose. Unusually defined for a wee one.

I feel like someone doesn't completely understand the connection between breast pumps and food for the baby.

On the other hand, I imagine eggnog would fatten baby up right quick.

Per +Catie Cherwin, now that it's the season, her body has automatically switched to producing eggnog instead of milk.

And she's a nurse, so she knows whereof she speaks.

This is pretty cool, if you've ever had to work with or think about color spaces before. And if you haven't, it's pretty cool because it will make you think about what a complicated problem color turns out to be.

The Adobe user account database that was hacked has been released online - which is useful, actually (the leaking, not the hacking), since it means Lastpass can tell you if your email is in there:

https://lastpass.com/adobe/

Note that I trust Lastpass, but you don't need to if you want to use the tool; it only asks for your email address.
LastPass is an online password manager and form filler that makes web browsing easier and more secure.

And now Chrome on my MBP has decided to stop listening to multi-touch - such as, you know, two-finger scrolling - on the trackpad every few minutes. I have to restart Chrome to get it back.

This is untenable.

Edit: hrm. It appears to happen if I try to use a swipe navigate back. This makes it avoidable, but still unworkable. Anyone know if there was a Chrome update recently?

Guess it's time to see if Firefox still looks like ass on a retina screen.

This is a question for those of you who either have an infant/baby right now, or recently have:

At any given time, how many baby bottles did you have "in rotation"? AFAICT, parenting consists mostly of wielding a variety of bottle, nipple, and vent pipe brushes against an assortment of bottles, nipples, and venting assemblies. I had always imagined parenting to involve things like holding a baby, talking in soothing tones to a baby, gently bouncing a baby on one's knee, und so weiter. But no, parenting turns out to be - pretty much exclusively - doing dishes.

I suspect I do not have sufficient baby bottles to meet our needs, but I also don't want to go bonkers and spend our 401(k) on skids of bottles.

So, since some of you have done this recently or are doing it right now, what's your bottle strategy: how many, how do you wash them, etc.

Vielen dank.

Matt, when we started giving both Alexa and Olivia formula we would purchase the ready to use bottles of formula and reuse the bottles.  Then all you need to do is purchase extra nipples.

In news only tangentially related to baby: impact drivers are awesome.

The topmost bracket supporting the banister along the stairs to the second floor snapped in half a couple days before we went to the hospital for the birth. Since the banister was only held up by three brackets, this materially reduced its functionality.

When I went in to pick up replacement brackets, I also talked myself into getting an impact driver, since I had a lot of screws to drive to put the banister back up. This was a somewhat guilty rationalization, since I knew I could use my drill just as well.

WRONG

I could not use my drill as well as the impact driver. It's absolutely no contest. It works so well, in fact, that I don't even mind it being cordless.

Even with the impact driver, though, one of the screws on the new topmost bracket (of four; three didn't feel like providing enough support to me) was a stubborn bastard. Even after widening the pilot hole (supposed to be 3/32", I upped it to 7/64"), I rounded the hell out of the screw without actually getting it flush to the bracket.

(I should mention, here, how much I loathe the series of events that led to Philips being standard)

Spax to the rescue - what a difference a head type not specifically designed to rotate the bit back out of the screw makes.

Anyway: impact driver - aces. Philips head - crap. Spax - brilliant.
