Wow the CMOS on my decade old SLR won't do this without a lot of noise and I'm not that good but this is neat
 
Milky Way Timelapse from +Cory Schmitz

I'm working on an episode of the Guide to Space where we talk about our perspective of the Milky Way. +Cory Schmitz was generous enough to provide a few pictures and timelapses of the Milky Way, which we'll be incorporating into the episode.

But I thought I'd share an amazing clip.

Well, enough of my fun with electronics, I just picked up a new educational toy for my daughters.  If you have not see littlebits check out www.littlebits.cc.  If you look to get something here is a discount code below that helps me and you get more littlebits for the little ones.

Dude you are a very cool dude (but I already knew that). My uncle bought me a chemistry set and a microscope when I was 10. He was a veterinarian but its the same thing sharing a cool toy that provides a learning skill is a gift that gives forever

I am super stoked about all the changes in the micro-controller space.  Look at this new raspberry-pi in sim style - and all those GPIO headers:

Look at this cool shrunk arduino:

more projects for the weekend..  I really really need that 3d printer now!!!
From humble beginnings, the Raspberry Pi platform has grown and matured: the software is now full-featured and stable, and is still constantly improving thanks to the continuing hard work of our heroic community of volunteers; as well as targeted injections of funding to solve some specific ...

This was a fun project from adafruit using their Trinket based on Atmel ATtiny85, that they use in their wearable electronics section.  I wanted more sensor data around the house on the cheap before I go all out with the Bluetooth LE and/or CC3000 on an UNO.  Using the Trinket made total sense to me to warm up the family to more crazy jumper wires and displays laying around the house.  One downside is that uncommon guests look at you a little weird and ask questions probing if your into making other things that go boom.  These have been running like soldiers slightly sensitive to current issues (like when the high speed blender kicks on the same circuit).  Nice thing about these over the PI and Beaglebone is its just a simple micro-controller and no fsck is needed if power is an issue.  time to shop for some CC3000 and Bluetooth LE hardware now and a few more UNOs.

I really enjoy how much this crew loves noise makers, cyber punk and sharing knowledge in a fun way.

Nope, just using OpenBSD with pf and dhcp and bind.. I don't think I'm doing much else with it.  Just a basic setup.
