I'm going to be building one of these, with a rewrite of the code to implement additional features.

This is a basic electromagnetic emitter that causes read-heads to register card-swipes, even from a (short) distance.

Anyone interested in joining me on this?

That's an interesting device. Not a particularly high count of components, nor expensive ones. It appears the foundation is sound and the implementation good.

I'm up to my eyeballs in projects, otherwise I'd consider playing with this idea too.

Story
Tagline
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. (Ephesians 6:12)
Introduction
Life Principles
  • Impossible is nothing.
    Any goal is attainable.
    Futility does not exist.

  • Go hard or go home.
    All limits are illusory and self-imposed.
    Anything worth doing is worth overdoing.

  • Never fear the fall.
    Men are absolutely powerless to cause me harm.
    I will not permit myself to be held back.

  • Have no shame.
    I will do what I feel is right without regard to social stigma.
    I will not concern myself with what others think.

  • Solve problems.
    I am either a part of the problem or a part of the solution.
    I will strive in every act to be a part of the solution.
Bragging rights
I was going to tackle my procrastination problem last weekend, but I never got around to it.

Me and a friend stopped in yesterday for lunch. I ordered iced tea, the house-special Gourmet Cheeseburger, and a side of mashed potatoes. The tea was instant mix, and they even mixed the powder and water in plain sight behind the bar. The Cheeseburger arrived without cheese and had to be sent back to have it added. The mashed potatoes were so poorly prepared that pockets of still-dry instant-potato flakes were present throughout. The gravy was very institutional tasting. There is nothing Gourmet about Gourmet Kitchen. EDIT: I've since gone back to this location, and things were much improved. I've now been there several times, and it appears that my first experience was an isolated incident, and I now love this place.

I passed this place hundreds of times, and only just last week stopped in. I've been missing out all this time. I've been there three times this week (I'm hooked). This is the single best BBQ place I've ever been to. They have a salad bar stocked with all homemade stuff (soup, coleslaw, macaroni salad, etc), and their menu items are near perfection. Their all-you-can-eat special is by far the best deal around, as you can just keep ordering meats and sides, 3 sides per order. Their cornbread is the best I've ever had, and the garlic bread is damn close. Highly recommend.

I saw this place just driving by, and stopped on a whim. I was extremely impressed with the decor and quality of food, and even more shocked when I got the bill. This place is the single best value-for-dollar of any buffet I have ever been to, including casino buffets in Las Vegas. While I have been to better buffets, mostly at casinos, this is so cheap (for what you get) that I have to rate it excellent. I do not understand how they are able to profit offering such quality foods at the price they do. Highly recommend.

I ordered iced coffee, a double cheeseburger, and 'Brooklyn' spaghetti. After waiting over 15 minutes for the coffee, I spoke up and received it shortly afterwards. An apology was offered, stating that the delay was caused by it needing to be brewed fresh, which I suspect was a lie to cover her mistake. Despite being a featured item on the menus and signage, the waitress was somehow unaware that the iced coffee included free refills. The coffee was good, but not as good as iced coffee from places like McDonald's. It was 'fluffy,' as if blended too much, but otherwise fair. I am not sure if it was worth the $2.69 price, even with the refills. The double cheeseburger was one of the best I have ever had, despite it coming with pickles, after I specifically ordered it without. The burger was large and delicious, worth the $8.99 price. The 'Brooklyn' spaghetti was fair. The amount of pasta included was less than I expected for the price, and the quality was similar to what you would find at an elementary school cafeteria. The meatballs had a distinct institutional taste, and the garlic toast pieces where small, barely warm, and nearly burnt. The pasta was not worth the $8.59 price. I would rate this place lower than I did, but this is a truck stop catering to a captive audience, so these things are to be expected.

I've been to this hotel several times, about once every 1-2 years for a long time. In the past, it was always my favorite place in Pittsburgh. The indoor waterfall, excellent breakfast buffet, and outdoor hottub made this place a must for anytime I was in the area. This time it was different. Since my last visit, the price went up from $120/night to $230/night, nearly doubled. When I phoned the hotel to ask about this huge price hike, I was told that the entire hotel had recently been remodeled. With heightened expectations, I decided to book anyway, despite the high price. Not only did I not notice any remodeling of any kind, the place was much worse than I remembered. The heater in my room worked very poorly and was still blowing cool air even when cranked up to 78 degrees. This was reported to the front desk, and no apparent effort was made to correct it. After my 2-day stay, it was only starting to feel comfortable, after leaving it cranked the whole time. There were what appeared chocolate (or maybe even blood) stains on my bed sheets, and on one of the lamp shades. Several pieces of breakfast cereal were under the desk, against the wall, proving lousy housekeeping standards. Three of the electrical outlets in the room (the ones built into the lamps) were so worn out, they were practically useless. Trying to charge my cellphone and laptop was a futile effort, because you had to keep wiggling the plug to get it to work, only to have it stop working a few minutes later. Of the two telephones in the room, one of them was completely nonfunctional. In the recreation area, the water temperature in the pool was a bit on the chilly side, but, more importantly, there was a significant snow and ice buildup around the outdoor hottub. In the past, this was always swiftly addressed, but this time no one seemed to care. The free buffet was also disappointing, at least compared to last time. The eggs were cold, the french toast was hard, and the plates where not all clean. One of the plates was even cracked, exposing a sharp edge. This review may seem to be me just complaining about things, and, this is true to an extent. If this was a cheap roadside motel, I would understand, but I spent over $530 on a 2 day stay, and, at this price, I was seriously disappointed. Next time I am in Pittsburgh, I will be staying somewhere else.

Stopped in a half-hour before closing, and the owner did a very through job shaving my head. One of the best barber buzzes I've ever had. After the haircut, we ended up chatting until close. Seems like a very nice, honest guy. The world needs more down-to-earth people, especially small business owners.

I showed up at 9am wanting a room, 6 hours before their check-in time. Not only did the manager offer me a room early, giving me a 26-hour rental at no extra charge, but he woke up housekeeping to ready the room for me immediately. The room itself was clean, and even had a microwave oven and mini refrigerator, two things you do not often get at this price. The hot water was fire, even for someone like me who loves super-hot showers. I am not sure why the other reviews are so negative, at this price what do you expect? This is not Caesar's Palace, but at the price, is certainly worth it.
