In a few weeks, I'll be moving to a new team at work which incurs a new desk on a different floor.  I'm not going to be in a south-facing window anymore :( but I don't want to leave the grapefruit trees that I've been nurturing from my breakfast with my intern 6 years ago.

So, a Microview, some high wattage RGB LEDs, an RTC module and some power should help me supplement other light sources with some color temperature controlled lighting for my photosynthesizing friends.  I've build these kind of grow-lights before but not at this wattage or with an RTC.  I hope that this works out.

Solar Bike Helmet v3.0b - now has a 1W solar panel, optional USB charging for cloudy days, a replaceable LiPo battery, a headlight that I expect to be useful as a reading light on the road, a wide angle rear EL light, and Jay Garrick wings!

This is the guy who beat you up in high school, trashed your bicycle for laughs and that you saw kick a homeless person in the street as an adult.

and... he was an officer of the court who committed white collar crime as an ongoing practice.

A thug.
Mr. Grimm, a Republican from Staten Island, resigned from Congress after he pleaded guilty in December to one count of tax fraud, a felony.

There is one suitable punishment; even a person like this has something that brings him joy. I would find such a thing and take it away from him.
 
What a disgusting human being. 
Walter J Palmer, a dentist from the state of Minnesota, is thought to have travelled to Zimbabwe and allegedly paid £35,000 ($55,000) to kill Cecil the Lion.

Put me in a room with the person who did this.
 
This just makes me sick!

Zimbabwean authorities hunt Spaniard accused of killing Cecil the lion: European allegedly paid €50,000 for chance to kill tourist attraction, who was found headless after being shot with a bow and arrow and tracked for 40 hours.

Lotta the bluetooth here

Eric Shaw's profile photo
 
Sadly, bluetooth and 2.4GHz Wifi use the same spectrum.  With the locations of the dips there I am fairly certain you are mostly looking at WiFi, not bluetooth, with the exceptions of the 2 spikes at ~2426 and 2480 MHz.  The 3 hills on the graph are the WiFi channels 1, 6, and 11, 1 and 11 get used because they are the min and max allowed in North America, 6 gets used as the midpoint between those 2, and the only channel far enough from the other 2 to avoid interference.

The spike at ~2480 may be someone who hacked their router to use channel 14 approved for Japan.

They don't open when they say. I could've made some tea at home, but I assumed you were running a business. Epic fail folks.

The Tea Lattes have as much body as coffee, finally! The staff is amazing, they remembered me and my "usual" after a couple of visits. The wide variety of seating has places for you to read a chapter or people watch. What could be better? Open earlier so that I can go there more :)

After a year of being the first customer of the day, having a cup of tea, tipping relatively well and dealing with occasional beginning-of-shift startup issues I was told today that "notebooks and tablets are only allowed downstairs" I asked if this was new and was told that it's "since last wednesday, there's a sign behind the register." Well, so much for customer service. You've lost me and I suspect many other loyal regulars to whom you've just said "s**** you" Good luck.
