"Can I have 2 feet of coax, atmega32, a pair of SMC connectors, some whole wheat bread flour and some olive oil?" - Hackers steal data using pitta bread http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-33229424
Secret encryption keys can be stolen using a cheap gadget so small it could be concealed inside some pitta bread.

Started a netted laundry bag today (while on the bus). #40 hemp, 1" mesh. In the last few rows I switched from plain netting to diamond. Hopefully the occasional larger openings from the diamond pattern will not cost me any socks.

Nice work!

(Put the socks in first -- the rest will hold them in)

Is it just me or does it happen to others as well? 'Cus every time someone says "deploy" and "solar sail" together I hear "makeshift".
 
Success...after a series of worrisome setbacks and silences! The Planetary Society's LightSail deploys its Solar Sails in space! Something that should have been done at the very dawn of the Space Era, almost a lifetime ago… developing useful, reliable, deployable light sails (or “solar sails”) to send small craft cheaply across the community of planets.

Support the worthy efforts of The Planetary Society and Bill Nye to keep our eyes on space:

Now I love the "Alternate Official Video" video of "The Lazy Song" by Bruno Mars with Leonard Nimoy, but somewhere between STTOS going off the air and the creation of YouTube I spent time immersed in Deaf Culture. The folks at D-Pan (Deaf Professional Arts Network) are trying to hit 50K views with their recently released video of "The Lazy Song" and it is just a blast! Please watch it!

+Gavin M.​, sorry I missed your comment weeks back. The 3D printer version is an attempt to make a printable version of my leather desktop chorder. So, cardboard should work fine. There are images from the construction of that device at http://chorder.cs.vassar.edu/spiffchorder/2010-03-leather

Trekkies rejoice! You can now buy a working Star Trek Communicator. #TheGadgetShow   
Beam me up, Scotty. Someone has made a proper working Star Trek Communicator, and it's actually available to buy! It's an exact replica of the communicating device that Captain Kirk and the Enterprise crew used to speak to Scotty in the original series. Just like the real thing, it flips open ...

Why did it take so long to do this?!?  Couldn't my old flip phone have at least beeped when I opened it up?  It feels like this missed its commercial window, but it's still cool.

Mostly because we just saw this W.P.A. statue at the San Rafael High School, but also because it's 'fathers' day, so to tie it in I offer you "Louis Pasteur, the Father of Immunology?" By Kendall A. Smith
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3342039/ to accompany the pictures of the cool statue.

Great News! Among the things Philae was supposed to enable was the measuring of radio absorption by the body of the comet as signals from Rosetta go through it so as to make a tomographic impression of the interior. I'm glad this still has a chance of happening.

Thank you for posting this recording of his voice. I just came from the first U.S. showing of the restored silent film he did. See it when you can, you will not be disappointed. It was wonderful.

I hate that I missed it. 
Doug Engelbart's famous demo is being reborn in suitably dramatic form: avant garde opera.

My favorate early chorder is one I learned of on my first visit to the Computer History Museam in Mountain View (http://www.computerhistory.org/). Here is the patent filed in 1960 https://www.google.com/patents/US3022878, I don't know how early it was in use.
