Today a made a 3D printed key for my Mini just to prove it could be done.  I was talking with a locksmith that was at my work today and was talking with him about how 3D printing technology would change his profession.  I told him I could take a photo of a key and print a replacement using the photo as reference.  He said it was impossible.  Sounds like a challenge to me.  Thirty two minutes later.

Another on in the theme of "great low-level software hacks".

This sentence is the best:
  The sax instruction is a mix of sta and stx; it tries to write the contents of both A and X to memory, and due to the NMOS process used to manufacture the 6502, zeroes are stronger than ones, so bus contentions resolve into bitwise-and operations.

Relying on the processor manufacturing method to create custom op codes and then exploit them in very useful ways is amazing stuff.

I hate the way they're teasing us with this, but if - I repeat, IF - they've discovered the nature of dark matter, this will make the discovery of the Higgs look very small and boring.  So I can't resist talking about it.

The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer is the thing that looks like a fat white can sitting on the space station here.   In its first 18 months of operation, it's detected almost 8 billion electrons and their antiparticles - positrons - shooting through space.  If dark matter is made of weakly interacting massive particles, they may occasionally collide and turn into electron-positron pairs.  For a long time, Sam Ting - who won the Nobel prize for discovering the charmed quark - has wanted to look for these and learn more about dark matter.  He proposed the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer in 1995, and with the help of at least 500 other people the current version was delivered to the International Space Station on May 19, 2011.  They plan to release a paper on their results quite soon.

They aren't saying what they've seen!  But here's what Sam Ting has said:

"It will not be a minor paper."

and:

"We've waited 18 years to write this paper, and we're now making the final check.  I would imagine in two or three weeks, we should be able to make an announcement.  We have six analysis groups to analyse the same results. Physicists as you know - everybody has their own interpretations, and we're now making sure everyone agrees with each other. And this is pretty much done now."

So, stay tuned.  The BBC has a good article:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-21495800

and so does Space.com:
