    NASA published the following media advisory moments ago: NASA will make an announcement about the agency's first mission to fly directly into our sun's atmosphere during an event at 11 a.m. EDT Wednesday, May 31, from the University of Chicago's William Eckhardt Research Center Auditorium. The event will air live on NASA Television and the agency's website. The mission, Solar Probe Plus, is scheduled to launch in the summer of 2018. Placed in orbit within four million miles of the sun's surface, and facing heat and radiation unlike any spacecraft in history, the spacecraft will explore the sun's outer atmosphere and make critical observations that will answer decades-old questions about the physics of how stars work. The resulting data will improve forecasts of major space weather events that impact life on Earth, as well as satellites and astronauts in space. ...

    An anonymous reader shares an article: The music-streaming service Tidal is saying goodbye to yet another CEO. Jefffrey Toig, who became the company's CEO in December 2015, is leaving the company. This would make him the third CEO leaving Tidal after two years, following the departure of Andy Chen and Peter Tonstad. In a statement to CNET, Tidal said that it will announce a new CEO in the coming weeks. The Jay-Z-owned music service has relied heavily on star power and album exclusives, but its bet doesn't seem to be making any splashes. On top of that, the company was accused in January of lying about its 3-million subscriber-base. They were accused of creating fake accounts. ...

    An anonymous reader writes: Millennials aren't buying homes in the same numbers as previous and older generations, but it's not because they don't want to. The vast majority of millennials do indeed aim to buy someday, or would even like to now if they could. Unfortunately, the numbers don't look good. New data from Apartment List shows that, although 80 percent of millennials would like to purchase real estate, very few are in a good position to buy, largely because they have nothing saved. According to the report, '68 percent of millennials said they have saved less than $1,000 for a down payment. Almost half, or 44 percent, of millennials said they have not saved anything for a down payment.' ...

    The number of workers in the so-called gig economy will grow substantially in the coming years, according to a study by Intuit and Emergent Research. By 2021, the study finds, 9.2 million people are going to be working the frontline jobs at companies like Uber and Lyft. That number is projected to be 4.8 million this year. From a report: The rise in on-demand workers has been fueled largely by startups like Uber, TaskRabbit and Airbnb. It has also helped companies like Intuit, which makes tax software QuickBooks and TurboTax. The company's stock surged to an all-time high yesterday thanks to the gig economy. For context, there are currently more gig workers than people employed in the entire information sector (which includes publishing, telecommunication and data processing jobs) and IT services combined, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    RadioShack, an almost 100-year-old American chain of wireless and electronics stores, had a hell of ride at retail. The cradle of building your own electronics at home, and an early participant in the PC revolution, is finally facing the end after a long, slow death at the hands of consumer disinterest, a dysfunctional marriage with Sprint. From a report: Tons of electronics stores have shuttered over the past decade, but few are as tragic as RadioShack, which filed for bankruptcy in 2015, appeared to be rescued by Sprint in agreement to co-share the stores, then got kicked to the curb and had to file for a second bankruptcy this past March. The new agreement means hundreds of RadioShack shops will officially close down and be replaced by Sprint stores, fizzling out dreams of the Maker movement. So while this is an end to another chapter of our American electronics retail culture, we do have to wonder: how are the folks at RadioShack doing? They have been selling the leftover stocks of...

    You may remember Disney's boss revealing that hackers had threatened to leak one of the studio's new films unless it paid a ransom. Bob Iger didn't name the film, but it was thought to be "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales." But now Iger says: "To our knowledge we were not hacked." From a report: Disney chairman-CEO Bob Iger confirmed Thursday that a hacker claiming to have stolen an upcoming Disney movie and demanding a ransom didn't appear to have the goods. "To our knowledge we were not hacked," Iger told Yahoo Finance. "We had a threat of a hack of a movie being stolen. We decided to take it seriously but not react in the manner in which the person who was threatening us had required." Iger continued, "We don't believe that it was real and nothing has happened." On May 15, as first reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Iger told ABC employees at a town hall meeting in New York that someone claiming to have stolen an upcoming movie would release the film on the internet...

    Dustin Volz, reporting for Reuters: Facebook, Amazon and more than two dozen other U.S. technology companies pressed Congress on Friday to make changes to a broad internet surveillance law, saying they were necessary to improve privacy protections and increase government transparency. The request marks the first significant public effort by Silicon Valley to wade into what is expected to be a contentious debate later the year over the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, parts of which will expire on Dec. 31 unless Congress reauthorizes them. Of particular concern to the technology industry and privacy advocates is Section 702, which allows U.S. intelligence agencies to vacuum up vast amounts of communications from foreigners but also incidentally collects some data belonging to Americans that can be searched by analysts without a warrant. ...

    Windows 7 and 8.1 (and also Windows Vista) have a bug that is reminiscent of Windows 98 age, when a certain specially crafted filename could make the operating system crash (think of file:///c:/con/con). From an ArsTechnica report: The new bug, which fortunately doesn't appear to afflict Windows 10, uses another special filename. This time around, the special filename of choice is $MFT. $MFT is the name given to one of the special metadata files that are used by Windows' NTFS filesystem. The file exists in the root directory of each NTFS volume, but the NTFS driver handles it in special ways, and it's hidden from view and inaccessible to most software. Attempts to open the file are normally blocked, but in a move reminiscent of the Windows 9x flaw, if the filename is used as if it were a directory name -- for example, trying to open the file c:\$MFT\123 -- then the NTFS driver takes out a lock on the file and never releases it. Every subsequent operation sits around waiting for the loc...

    Responding to Firefox marketing head Eric Petitt's blog post from earlier this week, Andreas Gal, former chief technology officer of Mozilla (who spent seven years at the company) offers his insights. Citing latest market share figures, Gal says "it's safe to say that Chrome is eating the browser market, and everyone else except Safari is getting obliterated." From his blog post (edited and condensed for length): With a CEO transition about 3 years ago there was a major strategic shift at Mozilla to re-focus efforts on Firefox and thus the Desktop. Prior to 2014 Mozilla heavily invested in building a Mobile OS to compete with Android: Firefox OS. I started the Firefox OS project and brought it to scale. While we made quite a splash and sold several million devices, in the end we were a bit too late and we didn't manage to catch up with Android's explosive growth. Mozilla's strategic rationale for building Firefox OS was often misunderstood. Mozilla's founding mission was to build the W...

    Reader BrianFagioli writes: After searching for Opera in the Apple App Store, I noticed something odd -- none of the company's iOS browsers (Opera Mini and Opera Coast) had been updated in 2017. Since we are almost halfway through the year, I decided to ask Opera what was up. Shockingly, the company told me that it no longer has a team working on iOS. An Opera employee by the name of 'Rosi' sent me a tweet this morning, making the revelation. While the desktop version of the browser is still in development, the company has chosen to abandon its efforts on iOS. To show just how bad it is, the Opera Mini browser hasn't been updated in almost a year. Opera Coast was updated in December of 2016, however -- almost six months ago. ...

    Just a heads up: I took down the gunshow facebook page and will delete the gunshow twitter since I got no use for em anymore once Gunshow ceases to update at the end of the year. I feel like not a lot of people are realizing this is for true or just don't read this blog down here. OH WELL...

    Tycho: You might like the podcast for this one when it comes out; the true origin of the strip is divergent from its terrifying new form. We are going to be a doing a new show on the Twitch stream.  The scam I have historically tried to pull in my life as a person who makes and does things is to try and work it so someone pays me to do something I would have made or done for free.  I probably shouldn’t say that outloud, but since the contract is already signed I think we’re in the clear. Penny Arcade Plays: Warmachine is a four player tournament we’ll be streaming…...

    New Comic: Finale

    Tycho: People seem to like what we’re doing with the PAX shows.  We have a lot of very unique experience bottled up here at Penny Arcade, earned over almost twenty years of planning and executing cons, and as our partner ReedPOP founds or finds cool conventions around the globe they’ve asked us to share some of that hard-won knowledge with local teams.  Wherever we can be a help to these shows, we will - and honestly, sometimes that’s going to mean standing back and trusting that team’s local approach.  Check out the launch site for more info about the first…...

    Gabe: Making a tabletop game is a lot of work you guys. Thankfully I am surrounded by some ridiculously talented folks at Lone Shark and Penny Arcade. Kiko has been working on finalizing the layout for our cards and they are looking really cool. For a long time our cards have gotten the job done, but now it’s time to turn this stuff: Into something I’m proud to put in a box. Here’s a sneak peek at some of the work Kiko has been doing: While Kiko hammers out the graphic design I still have lots to illustrate. Specifically I am working on our Judges right now. If you’ve…...

    Tycho: I was very, very late to the game on Destiny.  As someone whose primary axis of engagement with Bungie was via their lore, please act surprised, Destiny as a launch experience was missing the nanoscale furrows that would give me entre.  Or, it sort of was. Things definitely happen in the game, but they occur in a kind of dream logic which might have been caused by any number of things.  As the anchor for a “ten year game,” you don’t really want to paint yourself into a corner too early.  There was also significant creative turmoil at the time that caused…...

    New Comic: Cape Town

    Tycho: I haven’t had a chance to play The Surge yet, so I don’t 100% know what’s going on with it.  Gabriel doesn’t seem to like it, so I assume that means it’s great. Being like Dark Souls without being Dark Souls is, to my mind, an argument for whatever it is.  Bloodborne, made by the same fucking crew, proves it better than anybody: there’s a hard, shiny marble at the center of this loop and narrative experience that is a basecamp for other expressions of it.  Nioh proves out some concepts related to ARPG loot grinds and technical gameplay that I…...

    Gabe: I picked up The Surge not really knowing what to expect. I heard it had some cool combat mechanics and figured it was worth a try. It only took a few minutes of playing to realize it was Bloodborne but you can chop off body parts. Honestly that probably would have been enough for me if it didn’t look so stupid. Bloodborne is a game that oozes character and style and I think that’s why I was able to get so into it. On the other hand, The Surge reminds me of and 80’s cartoon. I am serious! Here’s the main guy from The Surge. I think his name is Bob Surge. And here are the…...

    New Comic: Chirurgery

    Tycho: Something I’ve never been able to understand is how you could forget what it’s like to be young.  I haven’t, but I have a weird memory where if I remember something I experience it and generally shudder or make a sound.  God only knows; maybe not forgetting it is itself evidence of some spiritual malnourishment.  It could also be empathy!  That’s another thing it could be. The types of content I’ve seen produced about Fidget Spinners, ranging from them being representations of Illuminati tampering with the youth to existential treatises on the…...

    Sometime this fall, UFO Interactive Games will be bringing Raiden V to PS4 and PC (via Steam) as Raiden V: Director's Cut. In an effort to entice fans to double dip (or sweeten the deal for people who don't own an Xbox One), Director's Cut will include a bunch of new features that probably won't amount to much, but definitely make the game sound bigger and better. For starters, cooperative play is now included. How that wasn't included in the original Raiden V is beyond me. That seems like a very basic thing that every shmup has, but I guess that is now a "new" feature. It looks like we're also getting full narration for the storyline, full 1080p support, three new ships, a "Cheer" attack (something to do with secondary weapons) and something called the "Tri View" HUD, which lets you look at your ship, command center and real-time status updates all at once. ...

    If you thought key, sword, and trash Pokemon mean GameFreak has exhausted all possibilities for new monsters, rest assured: good artists can always come up with more.

You may also find it more convenient to view the pictures on Robertson's site. Read more......

    It’s been nearly 14 years since audiences were first treated to Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow. At the time, Roger Ebert said that Depp’s “performance is original in its every atom. There has never been a pirate, or for that matter a human being, like this in any other movie.” Four films later, and this much is still true. Depp’s performance as Sparrow is unique in the catalog of all things movie and he still brings some of what made this character so unique and essential to the franchise to the table, err, deck. Fourteen years is plenty of time for an entirely new audience to have been born, and to those uninitiated to the Pirates franchise, they may find Depp’s performance, the corresponding over-the-top action sequences, and now iconic scoring to be nearly as enjoyable as audie...

    For the debut episode of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, the studio amusingly settled on the title Tangled Up in Blue. That song-based trend continues with episode two, Under Pressure, which is now set for a June 6 release on PC, Mac, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, iOS, and Android. The second episode promises to dig into Rocket Raccoon's past, hence that key art up there, and there's also talk of the Guardians getting "help from dubious old friends and unwilling new allies." Are any of you playing this yet? I briefly considered it after seeing and really enjoying Vol. 2, but then I tumbled into a rabbit hole of weird Yondu images that...

    You probably don't think about GTA V all that often anymore, but literally tens of thousands of people are thinking about (or playing) GTA Online daily. There's a reason the base game is so massively successful years down the line -- because folks want to jump into the online world of crime and mess around in a giant sandbox with a vibrant community. It's been on the front page of Twitch or whereabouts for years now, and as of next month there's a new update coming that'll get some more eyes on it. It adds in the gunrunning mechanic, which adds hatches into the game with "sprawling underground headquarters for sale, ready to be stocked with new military-grad vehicles and weapons." As is typical of the game it's free DLC in the form of an update, and GTA Online is supported by microtransactions for currency. If you aren't sold on GTA Online, or at least the idea that anything interesting can happen in it, a number of rolepla...

    Let's not beat around the bush: I like PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. I like it quite a lot. In fact, I feel a little bit of gratitude towards it, or more accurately, towards Bluehole and Brendan "PlayerUnknown" Greene for coming up with it. Why? It is, in short, the game that helped me realize what I want from the burgeoning survival genre right now.But to get at why it had to be this game, and not any number of its similar competitors, I'll need to tell you about the first two times I played a different game, a game called DayZ. Read more......

    While Final Fantasy XII's gambit system (read: ability to assign AI tasks with provisos) wasn't perfect, it was ahead of its time, especially for a console RPG. Obnoxious marketing speak aside in the trailer, it does a decent job of explaining what the gambit system actually is, which a Dtoid commenter recently called "a tinkerer's dream." In tandem with the job system that lets you swap between 12 classes (and the more open International Edition enhancement), you can also program parameters for your AI, with percentages and specific types of skills. It's probably the best part of the game, and I'm looking forward to seeing how fondly I remember the rest next month. In the meantime I was able to mess around with an early preview version and the new fast-forward feature. ...

    Disgaea 5 Complete is a Switch port of the original PS4 game, with all of its relatively pricey DLC included. This the first Disgaea game to hit a Nintendo console since Disgaea DS in 2008, giving Nintendo loyalists plenty of reason to be hungry for the unique blend of sacrilegious storytelling and turn-based action that the series is known for. Being the home to Fire Emblem, arguably the most popular Strategy JRPG series in the world right now, also helps to make Nintendo consoles particularly fertile ground for something like Disgaea. That's probably why game has already ...

    Since it first hit app stores earlier this week, I have been inundated with requests for information about how best to enjoy Pokémon: Magikarp Jump. I can barely go a minute on my Twitter feed without somebody asking me “What’s the best strategy for raising my Magikarp?” or “Should I focus on food or training?” or “CJ, you’re so hot, will you put a baby in me?” It can get tiring trying to answer each and every question individually, so I thought I’d whip up a quick guide for having fun with Magikarp Jump. Step 1: Press & hold the Pokémon: Magikarp Jump app icon until you are able to grab it. ...

    Square Enix CEO Yosuke Matsuda has some bad news for people expecting a surprise 2017 first chapter release of Final Fantasy VII Remake -- a slide during a fiscal year presentation has revealed that it's expected "within the next three years or so." Marvel also mentions its Marvel IP project (which I totally forgot they had) as something on the horizon. While I could probably wait 20 more years for Kingdom Hearts III (all of the algebraic spinoffs and sequels are a pretty good way to pass the time), I'm extremely anxious to see how Final Fantasy VII plays out. People are already divided over the episodic treatment, and if they take a year or more to drop each episode, that would be a pretty crazy sight to behold. It's also perhaps the most brazen use of nostalgia yet, and Capcom has been giving Square a run for its money....

    A few days back, I discovered a new Docker feature — multi-stage builds. The multi-stage build feature helps you create thin Docker images by making it possible to divide the image building process into multiple stages. Artifacts produced in one stage can be reused by another stage. This is very beneficial for languages like Java as multiple steps are required to build the Docker image. The main advantage of the multi-stage build feature is that it can help you create smaller size images. This feature is not yet available in stable versions of Docker. It will become available in Docker 17.05. To use this feature, you have to use the edge version of Docker CE. To build a Docker image for a Java application, you first need to build the Java project. Java build process needs a JDK and a build tool like Maven, Gradle, or Ant. Once a Java binary artifact is produced, you can package the binary in a Docker image. For running a...

    A few years ago, Red Hat introduced OpenShift, which provides a Platform as a Service (PaaS). There are a number of flavors of OpenShift from Origin, an open-source community project, to a fully managed online service. OpenShift allows developers to focus on incremental application changes while not having to administer the infrastructure. OpenShift provides a continuous integration framework where it slurps your GitHub repo into a docker container with the proper language engine and lets Kubernetes orchestrate the deployment of the container pods to various host nodes. That being said, NuoDB is not an application that can be deployed via the OpenShift web console but can be deployed as part of the PaaS. In this blog, I’ll walk you through standing up your own OpenShift Origin cluster on Centos and pull...

We will look at what it is, its main advantages, statistics, and success stories. What Is ElasticSearch? ElasticSearch is an open-source, broadly distributable, readily scalable, enterprise-grade search engine based on Lucene and released under the terms of the Apache License. It is Java-based and designed to operate in real-time. It can search and index document files in diverse formats. It was designed to be used in distributed environments by providing flexibility and scalability. Now, ElasticSearch is the most popular enterprise search engine followed by Apache Solr, also based on Lucene....

    ASP.NET Core 2 comes with Razor Pages that allow developers to build simple web applications with less overhead compared to MVC. The emphasis is on the word “simple” as Razor Pages doesn’t come with patterns suitable for bigger and more complex applications. For this, we have MVC that is flexible enough to build applications that will grow over years. This blog post uses a simple shoutbox application to illustrate how to build applications using Razor Pages.

    WannaCry Ransomware-the global cyber-attack has been in the limelight since 12th May 2017. This virus has overblown organizations in 150 countries. Though the attack was decelerated after a gap of 24 hours of devastation, its effect has not completely vanished. Before we dive into the details of the attack, let’s understand what ransomware and WannaCry is. Ransomware Basics Yes, it is. RANSOMWARE means asking ransom in the form of Bitcoin (cryptocurrency) for accessing your own data in your system. Ransomware is a kind of spiteful virus which attacks a computer or a system, encrypts its data, and blocks access to it. Hackers demand a ransom to give you back your access to the encrypted data....

    We’ve all seen the course offerings out there: “Learn jQuery in Ten Days”; “40 Hours to SQL Proficiency”; “Web Dev Bootcamp — From Beginner to Expert”; and on and on. Many of these courses — quite a few of them offered exclusively online — not only give big promises but guarantee to increase your knowledge base and skill level at a fraction of the cost you’d expect. So, what is the real value of these crash courses in development and, more importantly, do they actually make you more hirable and grow your earning potential? Unfortunately, the short answer to these questions is: “it depends.” We know, that seems like a non-answer answer. But, bear with us while we explain. At Exadel, we believe in hiring people who have a passion for technology. In our years of experience, we have discovered that it is these people — the folks who live, eat and breathe tech — that make the most productive, the most innovative, and the most insightful employees....

    The Internet of Things is a powerful, transformative force and cornerstone for digital businesses taking advantage of the convergence of the physical and digital worlds. Predictions about the proliferation of connected things vary from 20 to 50 billion devices by 2020, depending on which analyst firm you ask. While even conservative predictions are mind-boggling, we should keep in mind that IoT ultimately is not about ‘things’. It’s about making sense of the sensor data in order to deliver new services and experiences. ...

    I'm currently using Python to search through a .config file and look for an integer in a line such as "locationId="225". It replaces the integer such as 225 with another number of my choosing.

Example: locationID="" So if the original locationId is missing an integer, I still want to replace it with my new integer.

    I'm currently studying the C++ language from the book "C++ Without Fear, 3rd Edition". And at some point the writer introduced the cmath library. and he made a program for discovering the prime number. I didn't quite understand the program. So, if any one understood it. Can you please help me. #include"stdafx" #include <iostream> #include <cmath> using namespace std; int main() { int n = 0; // Number to test for prime-ness int i = 2; // Loop counter bool is_prime = true; // Boolean flag... // Assume true for now. // Get a number from the keyboard. cout << "Enter a number and press ENTER: "; cin >> n; // Test for prime by checking for divisibility // by all whole numbers from 2 to sqrt(n). while (i <= sqrt(n)) { if (n % i == 0) { // If i divides n, is_prime = false; // n is not prime. } ++i; // Add 1 to i. } // Print results if (is_prime) { cout << "Number is prime." << endl; } else { cout << "Number is not prime." <&l...

    I have a link with CSS transitions: HTML <a href="#" class="spin circle" id="link">Hover</a> CSS .circle::before, .circle::after { box-sizing: inherit; content: ''; position: absolute; width: 100%; height: 100%; } .spin:hover { color: #0eb7da; } .spin::before, .spin::after { top: 0; left: 0; } .spin::before { border: 2px solid transparent; } .spin:hover::before { border-top-color: #0eb7da; border-right-color: #0eb7da; border-bottom-color: #0eb7da; -webkit-transition: border-top-color 0.15s linear, border-right-color 0.15s linear 0.1s, border-bottom-color 0.15s linear 0.2s; transition: border-top-color 0.15s linear, border-right-color 0.15s linear 0.1s, border-bottom-color 0.15s linear 0.2s; } .spin::after { border: 0 solid transparent; } .spin:hover::after { border-top: 2px solid #0eb7da; border-left-width: 2px; border-right-width: 2px; -webkit-transform: rotate(270deg); tr...

    For some of you the title might seem familiar, as [Patrick Van Oosterwijck] LiFePO4wered/Pi project is a quite successful Hackaday.io project. Now he’s designing from scratch the plus version to fill in some gaps and solve some of the challenges that affected the initial project. So what exactly is LiFePO4wered/Pi+ and what can it do? In a nutshell, it’s a smart UPS for the Raspberry Pi. The standard version allows a Model A+ and Pi Zero to run on battery for over 2 hours, and the B+, B2 and B3 to run for at least an hour (it maybe less, …read more...

    If you are a watcher of the world of drones, or multirotors, you may have a fixed idea of what one of these aircraft looks like in your mind. There will be a central pod containing batteries and avionics, with a set of arms radiating from it, each of which will have a motor and a propeller on its end. You are almost certainly picturing a four-rotor design, such as the extremely popular DJI Phantom series of craft. Of course, four-rotor designs are just one of many possible configurations of a multirotor. You will commonly see octocopters, but sometimes we’ve …read more...

    The original Nintendo Entertainment System is affectionately called “the toaster” due to the way the cartridge is inserted. [MrBananaHump] decided to take things a bit literally and installed a NES inside an actual toaster. This isn’t [MrBananaHump’s] design, the Nintoaster comes to us from [vomitsaw], who also built the SuperNintoaster. Since [vomitsaw] was kind enough to document his original build, [MrBananaHump] was able to build upon it. The target toaster for this build was a plastic Sunbeam model found at a thrift store for $5. [MrBananaHump] gutted the toaster and cleaned out years of toast crumbs. The Nintendo mainboard would …read more...

    A car is a rolling pile of hundreds of microcontrollers these days — just ask any greybeard mechanic and he’ll start his “carburetor” rant. All of these systems and sub-systems need to talk to each other in an electrically hostile environment, and it’s not an exaggeration to say that miscommunication, or even delayed communication, can have serious consequences. In-car networking is serious business. Mass production of cars makes many of the relevant transceiver ICs cheap for the non-automotive hardware hacker. So why don’t we see more hacker projects that leverage this tremendous resource base? The backbone of a car’s network …read more...

    At the Bay Area Maker Faire last weekend, Intel was showing off a couple of sexy newcomers in the Single Board Computer (SBC) market. It’s easy to get trapped into thinking that SBCs are all about simple boards with a double-digit price tag like the Raspberry Pi. How can you compete with a $35 computer that has a huge market share and a gigantic community? You compete by appealing to a crowd not satisfied with these entry-level SBCs, and for that Intel appears to be targeting a much higher-end audience that needs computer vision along with the speed and horsepower …read more...

    [Andrew] wanted a digital readout (DRO) for his mini lathe and mini mill, but found that buying even one DRO cost as much as either of his machines. The solution? You guessed it, he built his own for cheap, using inexpensive digital calipers purchased off eBay. The DRO he created features a touch screen with a menu system running on an LPCXpresso, while smaller OLED screens serve as labels for the 7-segment displays to the right. The DRO switches back and forth between the lathe and mill, and while the software isn’t done, [Andrew] hopes to be able to transfer …read more...

    It used to be hot air soldering gear was exotic, but not anymore. There are plenty of relatively inexpensive choices. Many of these appear to be the same despite having different brand names and model numbers. One that is common and inexpensive is the 858D. These run about $50. [Gabse] has one and decided to upgrade it using some open source controller hardware and software. There wasn’t a complete guide, so he created one himself. According to the original GitHub page, the controller will work with the Youyue-858D and any clones. However, there are others like the Atten 858D that …read more...

    Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception is a great example of what polish can do for a fifteen year old series. The result? A very engaging take on the TRPG genre.

    Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar is simple average, based on the general perspective. Though it has several decent entertainment, it fails to fully grasp the potential of its characters or concept through the equivalent of 26 normal-length episodes, so whether it would be worth your time or not, it can be tricky to say. After using many new ideas along with characters introduced in the first episode the series stagnates for an longer period of time, remaining in the same setting and repeating a similar gags again and again....

    Maybe you will think that Heavy Object is another mecha anime with cliche character. However, I think you have to try it once if you think that way. This show brings different atmosphere of mecha genre. Its not only about huge robot vs robot, but you can see another battle between human vs human, and flesh-and-blood vs un-scratch huge machine called Object....
