Delphi Gem of the day: putting "reintroduce" on a destructor.

    destructor Destroy(); reintroduce; overload;

In our case all we got was a memory leak because the rest of the inheritance chain didn't override the destructor.

That is good.

I have my new bike lights from http://seesense.co/ (sorry about the autoplay bullshit on that site), and they seem to work. So the first thing to do, obviously, is leave them in a bucket of water for a couple of hours and see if they still work afterwards (I did actually put them on my bike yesterday and they also work there. But I'm too lazy to go for a ride in the rain).

Got my 8x16 LED boards from http://rgb-123.com this week, and given how bright they are I wondered how visible it would be in direct sunlight. In this video there's slight shade on the right hand side of the board just to show that the thing is working. 

To the naked eye it's much more visible than this, but the camera isn't showing it or the colour too well. I don't think it'll be good for 'read at a glance' signs, but as a light display it's eye-catching enough. Fully on it draws about 3A at 5V.

Interesting. But not too useful, he basically says swallowing air causes burps and some farts, digestion causes farts - especially smelly farts.

and video of a slightly out of focus UFO flying around inside the house.

Used the DSLR, should probably have used the phone to get more depth of field.

Interesting info about tax and income in Oz for 2011-2012 from the Guardian: Median income for full time workers is $46,900. Earning $80,000 puts you in the top 20% of all income earners, $100,000 gets you into the top 12%, $150,000 into the top 5% and $180,000 has you in the top 3%. And yes, the wealthy pay most of the tax. The top 20%, for example, pay about 61% of all tax, but they also earn about 45% of all income.

Which is lower than I thought.

for those that haven't joined this particular bandwagon yet, this kickstarter geek game looks worth while (and I'm a backer)

While I remember, here's the firmware for my http://www.hexbright.com/ light. Has "on but flicks" mode for bike headlight, next press turns it off if it's been on for a few seconds. Because I don't like having to cycle through all the modes to get it to turn off. Open Source FTW!

Following the Abbott lead and "whatever you did, we shall undo" made explicit. I'm amused at the same time as I am horrified.

Spent a day listening to someone whine that they have a lot of great ideas but no-one ever sticks around to help them implement the ideas. They were doing this while one of us built the water filter they'd been talking about. Apparently without ever seeing the connection.

I gave in and bought a cheap quadcopter based on "which one has the most hits on eBay" on the theory that that way I could get parts easily. Cost $50 in the local RC shop post-xmas sale which is slightly better than eBay , it's tiny and flight time is only ~5 minutes. Which I initially thought would suck, but it turns out to match my attention span fairly nicely.

And for $50 I didn't expect much, "6 axis gyro stabilised" or not. So no great disappointment there. It's controllable, 5-6 flights and I'm starting to get the hang of it. I can sometimes even take off, hover, and land, without losing control. Sometimes. And indoor only, with the fan off.

But the 90 minute charge time is starting to bother me, so I think when I buy a replacement surround for it I'll get another battery or two. 

Link is to the manufacturers blurb on a shop site because I couldn't find their site, not a suggestion.

Followup: ~20 flights in and I've discovered the performance is much better with the polystyrene surround off, but the blades are obviously more vulnerable. So it's back on after I wrecked one blade and damaged another. Still haven't takern it outside but intend to on the weekend.
