Google Code Python Videos
Google doesn't provide direct download links, but download managers like JDownloader (I use this one) will decrypt the links and give you a selection of videos to download from these YouTube links. The Google page for learning Python is pretty good. I have, however, downloaded the pages and made a PDF for them for offline viewing. I am away from home and have a very slow internet connection, so offline viewing is usually my only option.

Help Trevor build a Raspberry Pi Computer lab in Maun, Botswana.
Trevor is a US Peace Corps Volunteer who is busy building a Raspberry Pi
Computer lab in Maun, Botswana: his project page is here: We are really excited to see more projects like this getting underway: widening access to computers in the developing world was a big part of our thinking when we started designing the Pi.

Had a chance to swing by the grand opening of the +Tesla Motors Palo Alto showroom and take a peek at one of the Model X prototypes #throughglass.

For the record, I attempted to talk them into letting me pre-order a hypothetical future self driving Tesla, but was turned down. :p

WATCH: Grasshopper soars to its highest height to date - 744 m (2441 ft) into the Texas sky.

This was the last scheduled test for the Grasshopper rig; next up will be low altitude tests of the Falcon 9 Reusable (F9R) development vehicle in Texas followed by high altitude testing in New Mexico.
