+Fr. Robert Ballecer, SJ I've been seeing where some are looking to make a Raspberry Pi reachable via the internet.

Is there a practical way of safely setting up the Pi so it doesn't become a beach head into their network? Or maybe a Beagle-board?

Can we pick ourselves? I may not be as qualified as some others since I didn't go to an Ivy league school. There haven't been any sex, drug, or drinking scandals in my past or future. My stance is be ready to act, but don't be hasty. The UN is nice but they don't control us. The right to bears arms isn't about hunting nor is it limited to guns. The Federal Government should stop tracking marriages of any kind and treat all citizens as equals.

You can.  Can you convince anyone else that you're the best person of all people in the US to be the President?

+Veronica Belmont I installed the Direct-YouTube-Downloader on a friends XP Home computer and it had its search and home pages hijacked by the Babylon Toolbar. I uninstalled it but that didn't remove it from IE8 or Firefox13. I had to manually remove it from IE and needed to do a direct edit of the user settings files for Ff. I would NOT recommend software that includes such nasty software. Oh and I did install it on my Win& system without incident though I wasn't using the same security software and had better control of the install.

I do recommend YTD YouTubeDownloader - free.  It akes no attempt at installing toolbars and it will also do playlists, file conversion, and download in selected format or highest possible. My one caveat with it is DO NOT go to the supported sites link since it has several likely porn sites in the list.

I noticed you didn't cover how to identify the anode from the cathode on the LEDs. It would be a real bummer for someone to put it together, without reading the instructions, and have them all in backwards.

Then indeed that was my bad. Thanks for mentioning it. I see that it's in my show notes, but I'll mention the errata in episode 64. :)
