Some more Enchanted City pics

The Newtons Third Law vehicle was powered by Pulsed jet engines. The fuel was moonshine.

Great stuff yesterday at the Enchanted City. The added Maker Faire really added a great element with power tool racing, robots, and other activities.

Here are some pics. (Shame on Troy Record for not editing the collection)

I may have found a new show.
 
Don't think the #SJW-Taliban 'reporter' realizes that the target market isn't the millennials, but Stephen Fry's generation and younger, but older than the millennials.

Even more high-larious: those 'reporter' fuckers didn't realize that they ARE supposed to be the target of ridicule, so as to introduce their lunacy, to those who may not be familiar with it, in a comedy format... because no sane person should take the #SJW-Taliban feeeeeelz cuntardary of the millennials, seriously, other than with serious disdain.

xD
A millennial member of a focus group has angrily objected to the contents of a television programme because it portrayed millennials as coddled, easily offended and thin-skinned. The feedback for CBS’ new comedy series The Great Indoors was recounted by its executive producer Mike Gibbons at a Television Critics Association panel this week and, in further vindication, outraged a millennial member of the press.

For those of you who defended the retarded idea that anyone, including government (particularly them) should hold master keys to encrypted data.

The keys allow hackers to unlock Windows devices, including tablets and phones.

Oh my Gorsh this is a friend of mine doing this and she and her company is so damn close to funding this project!

Please share this! Surely you know some people who are into kayaking. Even if you don't get a kayak, maybe just share and send them a few bucks?

PAKAYAK goes everywhere, stores anywhere. Carry it on your back, take it in your car. Paddle it like a traditional hard-shell kayak.

Question: do you need to gain another country's citizenship before you drop yours?

If you do not, what are the ramifications? I suppose a green card or work visa is needed. But what about travel, how would that work? How did it become that the passport system is the only system?

KIDS CAN PROGRAM!

Here are some easy ways your kids can explore programming. Do you know of others?

(1) Blockly is a web­-based graphical programming environment. The new extension, Blockly Games, aims to engage and introduce programming to kids and those new to programming. Blockly Games is a series of educational games that teach programming. It is designed for children who have not had prior experience with computer programming. By the end of these games, players are ready to use conventional text-based languages.
https://blockly-games.appspot.com

(2) Program robots with a tablet.https://www.play-i.com. Pre-built robots with sensors kids can program to do many things.

(3) And from +Robert Hirsch​:

http://littlebits.cc/about
Snap together hardware bits that can be made into a variety of things and programmed.

http://myatoms.com/your-atoms/sets/
Similar, perhaps less flexible, with fewer parts, but has iphone/android interface possible.

http://www.tynker.com/
Plain old coding for kids; no hardware.

http://scratch.mit.edu/the foundation for Tynker; it contains the software for programming but not the courses as much.

https://code.google.com/p/blockly/
Another Scratch derivative.

http://www.lego.com/en-us/mindstorms/products/ev3/31313-mindstorms-ev3/ its lego, it can be programmed from a computer with a graphical language.

Graphical languages are good for getting kids to think procedurally. Once they have that, then they can try out something like:

Arduino (hardware supported by a community of developers)
Kahn academy (to learn a variety of webcentric languages)

Or the bazillion programming courses at Udemy
Games for tomorrow's programmers.

Today I learned that due to the sale of the building I will be forced to pay most of Tom Cotton's salary. Or perhaps a drone to go bomb some brown people. Or the salary of two IRS auditors.

Government is so awesome.

Introduction
Look at that ugly mug in the picture. Now for some of you, you may have to imagine some hair on  that head. For others of you, you may have to imagine the tongue on the inside of the mouth. And for some others still, you may be more used to t-shirt, shorts and sandals instead of a tux.

I recently played Dr. Katastroff in Queen Mabs Enchanted City in Troy New York. I spent a bazzilion years at RPI getting a PhD. I spent two years making creatures for movies in the 90's, woking on movies such as Hook, Radio Flyer, and Operation Dumbo Drop.

Mark was excellent settling us down in his show room and explaining the ins and outs of buying a hot tub, featuresets, and so forth. Delivery was tricky. He had to use a forklift attachment to his backhoe, driver the backhoe around sharp corners and along paths barely wide enough and then he had to raise the hot tub, nine feet in the air, over a parapet. He did it flawlessly with no damage to anything. He was in and out in less than an hour. There is a reason these guys get high ratings.
