So a Pi cluster is kinda silly (I suppose if you're looking for cheap development environment for working on highly parallel computations...maybe), but much respect for the engineering that went into this.
 
The Raspberry Pi has inspired many a hacker to take the inexpensive (~$35) microcomputer to the enterprise level. From bitcoin miners to clusters, the Raspberry Pi has found itself at the heart of many large-scale projects. On hackaday.io [Dave] served up…

Very impressive, though calling this a model is kind of a stretch.
 
One of my favorite parts of this job is seeing what people do with 3D printing technology, not for money or as a job, but rather just because they can. Over the

Oh the memories. For some reason the ship descriptions have been on my mind lately, and sure enough somebody had them up on YouTube.

This is all I could think of when I was watching Age of Ultron, glad I wasn't the only one.

Flea Market Gimbal!

Saw this bag labeled "Brushless Motor" at a flea market for $10, turns out it was (most of) a 2-axis Basecam gimbal! It's just missing the motor for one axis and some of the mounting hardware.

I was actually looking for just a pitch gimbal so I can look down while flying, and I should be able to print an appropriate mounting plate to go from the single motor to a camera mount pretty easily.

Definitely a good buy, should do just what I need. Assuming the controller isn't dead anyway...

It's permanent, but I don't know that it equates into me getting much more done than if I was forced to pack it up daily.

I plan on be selling the older PrintrBot soon though, so that should clear up some space.

Oculus Rift drops Mac and Linux, targets Windows PCs only

What with the very long delay getting to market, the required horsepower to run it, and now the announcement that they will only concentrate on Windows OS, the attraction of Oculus Rift is really waning for me. I'm rather hoping there will be suitable compatible alternatives to make use - probably cheaper and more widely supported.  VR itself should (must) have broader support than just for Oculus Rift otherwise it too won't really take off. There is a tremendous potential for VR and Google Cardboard also demonstrated how simple it could be.
While a certain portion of the cross-platform population has been lusting after the migraine-inducing charms of the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, the audience will be narrower ...

Introduction
My interests are pretty widespread and difficult to narrow down into the scope of an introduction.

I suppose a good start would be to say that I am an avid supporter of open source software and spend most of my free time working on various hardware and software projects which you can read about on my site: DigiFAIL

While I don't consider myself a programmer, I have written a few tools which others have found useful which are released under the GPL. Similarly I don't know that I would call myself a writer, but I have been published a number of times in publications such as 2600, so I suppose that I must be.

Been going to China Palace for over a decade, and it has always been a pleasure. This is some of the best Chinese food I've ever had, not just for the area, but in general. Specialties like their cheese wonton appetizer are a must have. The decor doesn't exactly impress, but it's certainly a real restaurant, not some takeout place with plastic booths. Whenever I'm in the area, I can't leave until I've stopped in at China Palace.

Love the decor at Dublin, even if it is somewhat forced. Its crowded and loud, but that's the way a pub is supposed to be. Food is excellent, and service has always been great. Highly recommended.

Captain Paul's has a great family feel, and you can tell Paul clearly cares about his customers and his business. The resturant is dedicated to military, police, and emergency service personel; and it shows, from the decor to the themed sandwiches and dogs. Between the food, service, and dedication to hard working men and women all over the country, Captain Paul's is an establishment I will happily frequent.

Love the feel at the Wicket, but truth be told, some of the food isn't that great. Stick with soups, burgers, sandwiches, etc. Their attempts at more exotic dishes are hit or miss. Service is good as long as the place isn't too busy, but go on a holiday or when some special is in place, and you could end up with quite a wait.

I have been to most of the Chinese take-out restaurants in the area, and I've been consistently impressed with Good Taste. They are always very fast and accurate with your order, and the food is much better than similarly priced establishments. Highly recommended.

The food at the Chowder Hut is pretty good, nothing to get excited about but won't let you down either. biggest problem we had was the service, waiting 20 minutes for a cheeseburger is likely to put anyone in a bad mood.
