Pen Testing Raspberry Pi style.
The Raspberry Pi is a surprisingly useful tool to test the strength of your network. To add another tool to your network testing kit, Warberry Pi is a self-contained set of scripts that run automatically when you plug your Raspberry Pi into a ethernet port....

Wait… I don’t think that's right. Hold on.

Ah yes...

Farmbot is an open-source CNC machine that allows you to plant and grow produce USING a robot with ease.

Farmbot can deposit seeds via a drag and drop web-based platform. It’ll even water them when required and hunt out weeds, ensuring your crop stays in tip top condition, ready for the picking.
FarmBot: humanity’s first open-source CNC farming robot, designed to put the power of polycrop farming into the smallest of spaces and powered by a Pi 3.

THE ORIGINAL 11 SPICES SECRET RECIPE?
(As published in The Chicago Tribune)

Prep: 30 minutes

Soak: 20-30 minutes

Cook: 15-18 minutes

Makes: 4 servings

2 cups all-purpose flour

2/3 tablespoon salt

1/2 tablespoon dried thyme leaves

1/2 tablespoon dried basil leaves

1/3 tablespoon dried oregano leaves

1 tablespoon celery salt

1 tablespoon ground black pepper

1 tablespoon dried mustard

4 tablespoons paprika

2 tablespoons garlic salt

1 tablespoon ground ginger

3 tablespoons ground white pepper

1 cup buttermilk

1 egg, beaten

1 chicken, cut up, the breast pieces cut in half for more even frying

Expeller-pressed canola oil

1 Mix the flour in a bowl with all the herbs and spices; set aside.

2 Mix the buttermilk and egg together in a separate bowl until combined. Soak the chicken in the buttermilk mixture at room temperature, 20-30 minutes.

3 Remove chicken from the buttermilk, allowing excess to drip off. Dip the chicken pieces in the herb-spice-flour mixture to coat all sides, shaking off excess. Allow to sit on a rack over a baking sheet, 20 minutes.

4 Meanwhile, heat about 3 inches of the oil in a large Dutch oven (or similar heavy pot with high sides) over medium-high heat to 350 degrees. (Use a deep-frying thermometer to check the temperature.) When temperature is reached, lower the heat to medium to maintain it at 350. Fry 3 or 4 pieces at a time, being careful not to crowd the pot. Fry until medium golden brown, turning once, 15-18 minutes. Transfer chicken pieces to a baking sheet covered with paper towels. Allow the oil to return to temperature before adding more chicken. Repeat with remaining chicken.


HE’S had us lickin’ our fingers for years but is the secret finally out to Colonel Harland Sanders’ tasty blend of 11 herbs and spices?

Great tutorial on getting electric motors working with a Raspberry Pi.

It's based on a Raspberry Pi Model A+ so some alterations might be needed, and it might be interesting to get this working in perl, but the wiring diagrams and explanation look excellent.
In this tutorial I will show you how to connect some motors to your Raspberry Pi. Doing so will allow your Raspberry Pi to interact in the real world, making it possible to build a robot, turn on...

Just attended a function - Whiskey Tasting - but the toilets were clean and the staff were friendly and professional. Can't ask for much more when you're at a function.

Service was excellent. The restaurant served a great buffet breakfast, and the coffee was great. The room itself was nice, but the heater/cooler was very loud (65db) and the room, while clean and well presented, was a little dated. There's excellent connectivity in the room with all sorts of AV connections including HDMI and also a network cable. We got free Wi-Fi, but I'm not sure that comes with every room.

Ruggedly beautiful landscape with a wide variation in terrain. The camp ground has everything you need (including flushing toilets and hot showers) along with the usual fire pits and rain water tanks. bring firewood as collection in the park is not allowed. There are a number of beautiful walks in the area, or just get up early and watch the sun rise, or climb the western ridge and watch the sun set. The local ranger is very friendly and loves a good coffee.
