Ha-ha... Who knows why they're doing it. Maybe there are ads on the site, who knows.
Or maybe they forgot to change what circles they were sharing with.

LED Chandeliers That Respond To Sound #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

LED Roundsystem from digital funfair on Vimeo.

LED Roundsystem chandeliers by Gavin Morris, respond to sound with each color representing a different note. via digitalfunfair

The globes themselves are made from styrofoam cups and bowls stuck to- gether with a combination of solvent free adhesives. I read somewhere that you can produce cyanide by melting the foam with the wrong glue, so I guess you have to be a bit careful! There is a history of using styrofoam and even cups to create ‘artworks’ – thanks internet for reminding me how hard it is to do anything original! – there is a page of works here . I made a hole in each cup using a hollow punch, glued them to- gether and then pushed through a Ws2812 pixel through each one, around 80 pixels in each globe (there are a few slightly different shapes)

Each globe has a Raspberry Pi in it with a wi dongle and a usb soundcard. I am running the Satellite CCRMA image – the image is raspbian based with some op- timisations for use of audio as well as including Pure Data and Nodejs, both of which I used for this project. I’ve got mixed feelings about using the Pi for this kind of thing – its amazing that it works but it was a slightly painful development process

I am selling my beloved C-500. Maybe you can get Linux running on it. Have not been able to... :(

It looks like a low-resource system. Have you tried VectorLinux?

Meet Tama – the station master cat who raised over $10 million and helped save a train line
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/04/27/meet-tama-the-station-master-cat-who-raised-over-10-million-and-helped-save-a-train-line/

I already wanted to go to Japan – this makes me want to go even more! Via Spoon & Tamago.

In Kinokawa City (Wakayama, Japan) there’s a peculiar train station manned by Tama, a peculiar station master. And “manned” is certainly not the right word because Tama is a cat. And Kishi Station is perhaps the only station in the world where work has been outsourced to our feline friends.

Sorry for the noob question. I have been a long time Linux user and was ridding my life of OSx and put 15.10 on a Core2 Duo Macbook without issue using USB install.

Had a 4,1 Macbook pro and now I am running into all sorts of issues. I have boiled it down to something with the integrated graphics card but don't have a good solution.
Machine has a brand new 128GB SSD which says is compatible with that MBP.
Ubuntu would get hung up and I figured I would try mint to see if it defaulted to a non graphical interface but it gets stuck at "fb: switching to nouveaufb from EFI VGA"

Again there is no OS on the system. I have tried booting with the kernel line "quiet splash nomodeset --" without luck.

Thanks so much for the help!!

I've had a pretty same issue with EFI+Ati Radeon back in 2013. The only distrib I could fire up was Linux mint. I don't know what is the difference between mint and Ubuntu, but maybe you should give it a try.

FCC says it's legal to hack your router
Router hacking is a geek staple. No computer geek worth his or her salt would consider running vanilla firmware -- the likes of Tomato are where it's at. A little while back, the FCC suggested plans to ban such hacking via open source firmware... or at least that's how it seemed.

Hey guys, I rarely ask questions and usually muddle through things but I am under a horrible time crunch to help someone out with a pretty cool project they are working on. Basically, I am going to be controlling high powered RGB underwater LEDs for a display (using WS2812). The lights are made and I have set up a Raspberry Pi as a web server communicating with an Arduino over serial (that part is all done). I found a pretty sweet jQuery color picker and want to integrate that into the mix and I am getting hung up between the HTML, jQuery, some Java script and the PHP putting it all together. If someone wants to help put it all together in the next few days I can almost assure some awesome swag. Thanks so much guys!

Here's a quick run-down using some pieces of code I've used in the past. Let me know if you have any questions: http://jaceswebdesign.com/rgbcontrol/

"[C]onsider that despite creating a world of terror, darkness, horrifying creatures, death, starvation and more, the same world also contains some of the most fascinating, compelling characters ever written.

What better way to immortalize them than… by creating Disney-style versions of them?"

If you've never imagined Game of Thrones (or a Song of Fire and Ice) as a Disney cartoon, you've got to check this out. From Varys with "little birds" on his shoulder to Jamie Lannister and Brienne of Tarth as Beauty-And-The-Beast, this is simply amazing!
If winter is coming, this epic artwork is the spring thaw.

This is the most amazing airport restaurant. It is staffed by Johnson and Wales students and is rarely full. It is a real gem. Try the Fisherman's deconstructed chowder!
