Supposedly holding the Guinness World Record for largest 3d printed object is this thing?
http://jalopnik.com/check-out-the-worlds-largest-3d-printed-object-1786461195

"... 1,650 pounds, 17.5 feet long, 5.5 feet wide, and 1.5 feet tall ... "

Pretty sure +Andrey Rudenko has printed bigger.
The Oak Ridge National Laboratory is charged with applying science and engineering for the U.S. Department Of Energy. That work includes transportation research, and as of last month, making the biggest-ever 3-D printed thing.

Yeah...I guess buildings aren't "objects" (e.g., one wouldn't normally consider moving them around).

Just a small update for Space Nerds In Space.  Main new thing is a space tow truck service for when you run out of gas. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KO6T3UXozI

This is an amazingly interesting and crazy attack. Even if your operating system is secure, so what?

Attack was successful in tests against Debian and Ubuntu

I'll forgive the vertical format because the dude had to shove his phone inside his guitar to make this neat little video that makes good use of rolling shutter artifacts.

This isn't mine, and I don't know how it works, but it looks pretty cool.

It seems to be a shader for procedural gas giants with some kind of velocity field for vortices and bands. Not sure how he doesn't end up with a mixed up mess eventually. Maybe it's multiple layers alpha blended and the layers never really mix, except visually. The color palette seems limited.

Hiked up Buzzard's Roost trail in Big Basin state park yesterday. Pretty steep at the end.

Back in November of 2015, the magazine "Linux Voice" mentioned my game Space Nerds In Space in issue #20.   And after a period of time, they release PDFs of their magazine under CC BY-SA 3.0 license.  So here is the little blurb they wrote, below.

Here's the entire November 2015 issue of the magazine: https://www.linuxvoice.com/download-linux-voice-issue-20/
Here's the license: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/
I believe the copyright is "(c) 2015 Linux Voice".

Thanks to +Mikey D for letting me know about this.

Traded in my 2001 Toyota Celica GTS for a new Subaru BRZ.  Kind of sad to see the Celica go after 16 years.  I'm a little surprised that the BRZ's driving position seems higher than the Celica's.  I thought it might be lower, but it doesn't feel lower.  The clutch on the BRZ is a lot lighter than the Celica's too -- I guess it must just have more leverage, though it doesn't feel like a longer travel.  Gear shift is nice, shorter throws than the Celica, and very notchy, but the shift knob feels a little light and plasticky compared to the Celica's.  Celica's leather seats were nicer too.  Still getting used to it, but so far, it's nice.  The red paint is very close to the Celica's as well.

Thinking about replacing my 2001 Celica GTS, and I think this guy has just about sold me on the Toyobaru twins.  He does a phenomenal job of reviewing the car, not your typical youtuber.

Story
Introduction
Disclaimer: The opinions I express here on google+ are my own, may change over time, and are not the opinions of my employer (whether my employer's opinions are coincident with what I express here or not.)

I'm a computer programmer by trade.  I work on a couple drivers in the linux kernel, and also have a few projects on sourceforge (and a few on github )

I'm also into art, and do a little painting, and music, I play electric guitar though not as well as I'd like. 

Oh, I've built a cyclekart.  I've also been bitten by the 3d printing bug, and have made a few things.

I have a blog called Scary Reasoner, which is about various things, but notably, it's about atheism and religion, but other than that it is much the same as what I post on google+.  

Currently for fun I've been building on a multiplayer networked 3D starship simulator game I'm calling Space Nerds In Space in C, no network libraries (well, glibc), no 3D graphics libraries (well, gtk), without even *fonts*, all from scratch, just for the hell of it.

Can't recommend this place. Ordered hot and sour soup and thai red curry chicken. The soup looked fine, was slightly hot, slightly sour, but *extremely* salty, with pretty much no other flavors present, or they were entirely masked by the salt. The curry sauce was very thin and watery, and not very spicy at all. There was something a little strange about the chicken I couldn't immediately put my finger on. It was kind of chunks, but kind of flaked apart almost like fish, and kind of too salty. Then it hit me what it was... I think they used *canned chicken*! Or if not, they somehow managed to make the chicken into a close approximation of canned chicken. Surprisingly terrible. Martin Yan should come down there and either straighten them out or close them down, because they aren't helping his reputation *at all*.
