Why go to Oxford even you can chase swans at the University of Lincoln?!

The University of Lincoln has a different take on advertising than many other unis.

Slightly odd that they don't market that video louder on their YouTube page. In any case, it's beautiful.

How to shoot video of a hamburger assembling in mid air (using arduinos, servos, relays, a high speed camera, testing and much creativity).

Hurrah! NIST has seen the light, and in its new password policy recommendations, usability and human users are finally getting the attention! No more mandatory password expiry times or characters replace with numbers or symbols, but actual security enhancing steps!
 
NIST has seen the light. Long passwords good. Rules bad. Frequent changes bad. Reminders bad. Complex requirements bad.
A lot of password rules are there simply “because we’ve always done it that way.” NIST aims to fix that, and here’s how.

Trump incites stochastic terrorism, suggests Clinton and/or Supreme Court judges should be shot.

Ha ha, sorry that's not funny.

Donald Trump engaged in so-called stochastic terrorism with his remarks about "Second Amendment people" and Hillary Clinton.

If it's before the election, it's for the party to decide (technically, the DNC); if it's after, it's the vice president who takes the lead. The party/convention can either choose the current veep candidate or somebody else, like Bernie.

This bog is bigger on the inside. On the outside, it looks like a Type 40 TARDIS. Neat.

#drwho #toilet
At The Way Station in Brooklyn, the doors to the Doctor's TARDIS open to reveal the bar's restroom, where guests can spend a little timey-wimey.

The grill may not be the most sophisticated, but somehow there's always firewood and it's free to use (that is, it's paid with my taxpayer money, you're welcome!). Also, there are a couple of benches and enough of trashcans -- which you should use, of course!

This place looks like a disaster but is a jewel. This goes for part of the crew as well 😉. There isn't a day so bad, that the Pablo or Carbo pasta can't make good again! Or if you're not into heavy duty pasta, have the salmon soup (clear or milky). Eat outside if its a warm day to her the feeling that Helsinki really is a part of Europe!

Levant is a pearl of Helsinki. The mezes are fresh and tasty, the crew friendly and enthusiastic! The place is rather small and gets easily crowded at lunch time, but you'll probably get a table while you wait for your food to get made.

The ice cream is fantastic but the service is glacial.

Even if you're visiting Helsinki for just a few days, you should get out of the hustle and grind and go to Noux (Nuuksio) national park. This is the real southern Finnish nature with trees, lakes, swamps, animals and no warning signs. There are places where you can grill food you bring with you; firewood is provided at no cost (note that making fire is only allowed at these designated places -- you don't want to burn down our national park, right?). During the weekends, you'll probably cube across scouts from the capital region, who live this place as their own. Good shoes are recommended, and mosquito repellant during the late summer and autumn months!

El Greco has great food, a relaxed yet rather stylish atmosphere, and great personnel. It's fancy enough for taking our your date or customer for lunch, but in no way a splurge. The tzaziki is great and the souvlaki i had for dinner last night was excellent! When even moderately crowded, the service slows down considerably. Go there to enjoy, not to hurry!

Went there for a coffee and walked out having had a carrot & orange juice with ginger, an utmost delectable bacon and avocado sandwich, a carrot cake, and a coffee -- with a huge smile. I will most certainly return to De Overkant next time i'm in the Hague for more of that, and to say hi to the excellent gentleman who recommended me that set.
