A 300-year-old "magic" shoe found in the wall of England's University of Cambridge might have been used to protect the master of the college from evil spirits, Cambridge News reports. The single shoe, belonging to the left foot, was found in the wall of what is now the Senior Common Room at St. John's College while crews were installing cables. "Given its location, it is very likely that it was there to play a protective role for the master of th...

Airport screening agents confiscated a plastic handgun produced with a 3-D printer from a man's carry-on luggage last week at a Nevada airport in what a federal official said Wednesday might have been the first discovery of its kind in the U.S.

The guy with the Nikon back for the Pi is back.  Not quite as good a deal, but I bought in again anyway.  This is much less ambitious goal.

In addition to protecting your raspberry pi it gives you the possibility to take photos with an old analog camera SLR or rangefinder.

Nice demo of an analog computer today. the first oscilloscope has a circle which is being generated by one section of the analog computer, and is brought out for illustration on that scope.
On another scope you will see the ball bouncing with gravity decay (it peters out and roles by the time it is across the display.
Another part of the analog computer is generating the horizontal (right to left sweep) the vertical (being bounced in the air, the petering out) and a delay which is subtle at the start or right side when the ball reappears.
Pretty complicated and nice stuff. All of this sort of technology can have other independent inputs to the analog computer which changes any of this. The rate of the ball going up to start with, how high it goes, how fast the bounce displays, and how fast it is moving.
Think this sort of thing applied to say a missile or such, this is the technology that was used, and sometimes is still used, though it is not uncommon for this to all be digitally simulated to work just like this system does.

Very nice if off the track spot. Not many places which are so much the same as when original owners had them are still around. They did do original soda fountain drinks as well, have not been for a few years, and knowing the soda biz, the syrup has changed to where it may just not be the same to bother with. However for a small diner, it is a great location, and if you want an experience similar to what you would have had a long time ago, it is worth going for that alone.

Don't know how good their practice is, but their sign and entrance appears in the episode "False Hearted Judges" of Law and Order, Criminal Intent, 2005 at about 12 minutes into the show(as measured w/o ads). Just after one judge is shot, scene. One of the ways I located the shooting location.
