figured it was time to do something with this profile. now it's my goal to find a way to use physics to work around law enforcement. two birds with one stone and all that jazz

does anyone know where to find a cheap microcontroller and maybe some servos? i'm looking to build a small robot for shits this year. built two before in college, but only had to scour the electronics room for the parts i needed. my first instinct is picking up an arduino board, but am thinking that'll be a lot more expensive that what i'll actually need (a basic, C-programmable board)

No problem. I'm glad it helps.

sorry about that last post, people. i had no idea there was so much god stuff at the bottom of it. just thought it was mathematical sequences and patterns (thanks to +Martyn Haigh for pointing out there was more to it than just numbers) . not saying there's anything wrong with the god stuff. you can believe whatever you want to believe. i'm just never going to push it on anyone, ever. especially since i'm agnostic, but that's besides the point. apologies if i offended anyone. i'm going to be checking what i reshare a lot more closely now, that's for sure

Rich Thoma originally shared:
 
Romney Space Policy

Today, it was revealed that former NASA Administrator Mike Griffin is member of the Romney Space Policy Advisory Group.
This is the same NASA Administrator who was the chief architect of an unaffordable and unsustainable plan to return humans to the Moon that would have cost about $200 Billion.

We can only assume that Gov. Romney did not know who Mike Griffin is or what he did as NASA Administrator when he asked Griffin to serve in his group of space policy leaders.
At the time of its cancellation, the Augustine Committee, a national committee composed of military, civilian and commercial space leaders, concluded that Mike Griffin's strategy would only work if NASA received a $3 Billion per year budget increase to $22 Billion.
This would result in a total cost that was almost $200 Billion.

"Confronted with Mike Griffin's plan to return to the Moon, Mitt Romney would have fired Griffin and rightly so," said Will Watson, Executive Director of the Space Frontier Foundation.

This is the new update for my app. Keep in mind that the user guide is set up for the update, so some features you see won't exist on the app until the update is released
empty projects originally shared:
 
A new update has been submitted for Maintain My Car. This release will add quite a number of new features and a better flow for the UI. Look for it in a week or less. Also, a user guide has been created to help understand how the application works. This can be found at the link below
The majority of important details about this application and how to navigate it are found in the subpages. Use them to find what you are searching for. If there is something that is not present, pleas...

My newest universal iOS app just went on sale and is available for an intro price of $0.99. I started writing this one so I could stop searching through my records to see what was due to be inspected or replaced. That soon escalated to a full-grown application for keeping track of all your records, inspections, oil changes, part numbers, etc. I know for a fact I'll be using this non-stop for my own personal use.

Spread the word if you'd like. I would more than appreciate the publicity

Whether you lean right and hate business regulation, lean left and hate censorship, or lean neither way but hate useless legislation, PROTECT-IP is a bill everyone should oppose. I encourage you to head over to Fight For the Future and contact congress.

time to vent:
why in the world do assholes decide to rate my apps for no other purpose than to badmouth something they clearly never actually used? if there were actual details about something they didn't like or they found an annoying crash or something, that'd be fine. but some vague description about things that don't even exist in the app, or completely contradict the app's strongpoints (which other users praise)....i just don't get it.

it's gotten to the point where i've stopped caring as much when the trolls hit it. but shit, some people are just dicks. screwing with the hard work of a lone, indie dev, just for the sake of screwing with them....that's just wrong.

vent time over

thanks +Arvind Gautam , i've definitely been trying to use what i can from reviews to change and better the app as needed. the next update (which should pass through review any day now) should fix some of that confusion. i really do appreciate the 52 cents, though. and i agree, those math majors are definitely something else, haha. but i'm glad i can impress with my physics degrees.

have a happy new year, everyone. maybe this coming year i'll start using g+ more often. i know i'm terrible at posting anything so far.

on that note, if anyone has me in a circle and wants to stay updated on my ramblings, you're best bet is to find me on twitter under the name _slev. or if you want to keep tabs on the apps i've written, consider adding +empty projects to your circle. i use that as my company page and post notes about where my apps are headed, be it updates, new apps, etc.

i'm getting so tired of Google touting that Android is "open". for anyone not willing to look into verifying their claim, it sounds great and makes for one hell of a marketing venture. but it's.....well, just not true. personally, i have no problems with Android or any OS for that matter. everyone has their own preferences, so if your device does what you need, that's ALL that matters. but i do have issues when a company, any company, drastically distorts facts

fair enough. I do love that it's more available as a source code than other platforms. I think google did a GREAT job in that respect. but that doesn't change the fact that it's only 23% open sourced. I just feel like they're throwing terms out without specifying what it truly means
