    Guest author Robert J. Moore is the CEO of RJMetrics, a provider of business intelligence to online companies.Much of the growth in software-as-a-service companies is being driven by a “land and expand” strategy: Tools first get used by individuals, then by small teams, and so on up the organizational hierarchy. Eventually the company finds itself signing a large-scale deal, all without a competitive process or RFP. Companies like Slack and Dropbox craft their pricing models specifically to encourage this behavior—Slack knew exactly what it was doing when it decided to allow accounts to grow to unlimited users for free, and it was certainly an effective strategy to penetrate my company, RJMetrics. One day, some engineers were using it, then all the engineers, then the rest of the company, then we reached a point of no return and paying for it was pretty much our only option....

    Amazon has opened up a new streamlined sales channel for startups called LaunchPad. If you've got something to sell—a recently Kickstarted invention, say—then LaunchPad lets you put it in front of millions of Amazon customers and distribute it through the e-commerce giant's massive pipeline. Your new product can even get Amazon Prime eligibility too. Sounds like a win-win situation. Amazon gets intriguing new products to sell that aren't widely available elsewhere, while inventors and startups benefit from retail expertise and access to infrastructure they might not otherwise have. That is, if they get accepted. Participants don't just sign up and start selling. There's an application process, one with somewhat vague rules and a couple of stipulations that new product makers should be aware of. Ready To Launch?...
    An anonymous reader writes: A new exhibit at Kennedy Space Center is letting the public see wreckage from the Challenger and Columbia shuttles after keeping it from view for decades. Two pieces of debris from each lost shuttle and personal reminders of the astronauts killed in the flights will be on display. The AP reports: " NASA's intent is to show how the astronauts lived, rather than how they died. As such, there are no pictures in the 'Forever Remembered' exhibit of Challenger breaking apart in the Florida sky nearly 30 years ago or Columbia debris raining down on Texas 12 years ago. Since the tragic re-entry, Columbia's scorched remains have been stashed in off-limits offices at the space center. But NASA had to pry open the underground tomb housing Challenger's pieces — a pair of abandoned missile silos at neighboring Cape Canaveral Air Force Station — to retrieve the section of fuselage now on display." ...

Created as a "social experiment," hitchBOT started its journey in the U.S. in Marblehead, Massachusetts, on July 17 with its thumb raised up and tape wrapped around its head that read "San Francisco or bust." After about two weeks in the U.S., someone in Philadelphia damaged the robot beyond repair. "Sadly, sadly it's come to an end," said Frauke Zeller, one of its co-creators.

Five buildings, including the historic Opera House Hotel, Lincoln Medical Center and the Concourse Plaza mall and movie complex, tested positive for Legionella. Disinfection efforts are ongoing or have already been completed at all five sites. ...

    sciencehabit writes: A simple supplement to a cow's feed could substantially decrease a major source of methane, a planet-warming greenhouse gas, a new study suggests. Each year worldwide, the methane produced by cud-chewing livestock warms Earth's climate by the same amount as 2.1 billion tons of carbon dioxide, a little more than 4% of the greenhouse gas emissions related to human activity. That makes cows tempting targets for methane reduction efforts. In a new study, researchers added the chemical 3-nitrooxypropanol, also known as 3NOP, to the corn-and-alfalfa-based feed of 84 milk-producing Holsteins and monitored their methane production for 12 weeks—the largest and longest such trial of its type in lactating cows, the scientists say. For cows whose feed included 3NOP, methane emissions dropped, on average, by 30%. ...

    During the season of crowded beaches on Cape Cod, photographer David L. Ryan provides a visual respite of the shoreline during an assignment in a fixed-wing Cessna.

Earlier this summer, photographer Suzanne Kreiter traveled back to Cuba, 21 years after her first visit there for The Boston Globe.

    Once again the San Fermin festival is underway in Pamplona, Spain. Dating from the 16th century and known worldwide for the harrowing running of the bulls over the city’s cobbled streets and criticized for its bullfights, the nine-day festival kicked off in a packed city square Monday with people dousing one another with wine and water. It concludes at midnight on July 14 with singing by candlelight. A flaming fake bull known as a "Toro de fuego" runs after revelers during the 2015 San Fermin fiestas in Pamplona, Spain, on July 6. Revelers from around the world turned out to kick off the festival with a messy party in the Pamplona town square, one day before the first of eight days of the running of the bulls.

When my Dad and I were at the Child’s Play golf tournament he saw me have a conversation with Kiko and Dabe about Nightlight. It was before I left for my vacation and I was really struggling to figure out what the monsters in this world would be like. The three of us were bouncing around ideas and my Dad just sat there and listened. We talked about the particular child’s fears informing each monster design. Dabe had the idea of getting real kids to draw monsters and then…...

    The International 5, Dota 2's largest tournament of all time, kicks off this Monday with two matches. With a prize pool of $17.8 million dollars on the line, TI5 will no doubt offer the highest level of eSports entertainment. The six-day tournament is taking place in Seattle. Many teams were invited, but up until this week it had not been decided which teams would take up the wild card slots and have their shot at the $6 million dollar first prize. The first two matches will be broadcast on August 3, with LGD vs Empire at 8:00 p.m. CST, and CDEC vs C9 at 11:00 p.m. CST. The tournament has 16 teams facing off spread between an upper and lower bracket, with placements determined by group stage play.  The event will conclude on August 8, with the winners of the upper bracket and the lower bracket facing off. We will be bringing updates as these matches play out. ...

    Dick jokes are not a part of my mind's default settings, but I can't help but notice a clear allusion to a male member when I see one. Teased in a trailer for an upcoming Pokémon movie this new armless, legless, bulbous headed monster has been spotted atop the accent in the word "Pokémon", fearless and fully erect -- a literal expression of the "Pocket Monster" moniker. Like Munchlax, Victini, and many other "movie debut" characters, this new member of the Pokémon family will probably appear in film long before he pokes his way into a game, but seeing as how Nintendo has supported Splatoon and other recent titles with free content updates, it's possible that we'll see this funny little penis euphemism show up in Pokémon X/Y sometime down the line. I wonder if drawing him on Miiverse results in an auto-ban? ...

    Today at a Final Fantasy Distant Worlds concert in Pittsburgh, composer Arnie Roth stated that "there is a Final Fantasy XII remake underway," adding that it would be coming out "soon." Maybe he meant HD remaster. That sounds more likely than a full remake à la Final Fantasy VII. Square Enix hasn't made any official announcement regarding this, mind you. But the publisher just put out enhanced versions of Final Fantasy X and X-2 for PlayStation systems, so another remaster seems plausible. Actually, it would be more surprising if it didn't happen sooner or later. Also, for what it's worth, Roth made a special note to point out that Final Fantasy XII ...

    Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 is in development, Team Ninja's Yosuke Hayashi announced today at the Dead or Alive festival.

But don't pitch a tent in anticipation just yet unless you live in Asia, as the game is getting released there exclusively, according to Dead or Alive's official Facebook page. Perhaps we are getting a surprise male only version outside of Asian, allowing us to stare at Zack's thick, long, and curved antenna on his shiny costumes while he fondles some balls. Yay!

    [In the heat of the moment, we decided to bring Pixie's blog on MGS up front. Hope you enjoy it. While I'm at it, check out Band of Bloggers, under new management, starting with Hideo Kojima games! ~Strider] [Heads up: I'm spoiling most of the MGS series here. No main series entry is safe.] Solid Snake is said to be the protagonist of the Metal Gear Solid series. It's a notion I've come to question over the years. I first met Snake on the NES with Metal Gear and later on was reintroduced to him on Playstation with Metal Gear Solid. As a kid, Metal Gear captued my imagination for it being so different from other games, as it was a game where hiding and avoiding detection were more essential to success than gunning down every enemy you saw. Even on the NES and MSX, Snake had his trusty card...

    Chances are you're unfamiliar with Astro Port, which is equal parts understandable and unfortunate. Japanese independent studios don't get lavished with attention (something we're trying to change), and Astro Port's wares aren't exactly the flashiest games around.

    The bodies are still being pulled from the flaming wreckage of an 8-car accident after Tennessee teens tried to recreate the hit video game Rocket League. Organized by 16-year-old Bryan Song of Big Sandy, the game took place in an empty lot outside of town that is usually used for backyard wrasslin’, muddin’ and other activities poor white people do when they live in a state as boring as Tennessee. According to witnesses, the match lasted for just a few seconds before all eight cars smashed into one another, sending car parts and bodies flying. “It was awesome, and sad, but mostly awesome,” Song said. “I think there were a lot of things we should have done differently, you know, to prevent all the dying. We should have tried to find a ball as big as the cars instead of using a soccer ball nobody could see. We should have made them wear ...

    GunHo Online is putting some of that Puzzle & Dragons money to good use by remastering one of the best RPGs from the Dreamcast era, Grandia II. An enhanced version of the old classic is on its way to PC later this year, complete with a Japanese voice track and harder difficulty setting. The visuals, of course, have also been cleaned up since the title debuted 15 years ago -- which you can see for yourself in the gallery below with these new screenshots of the upcoming PC release. By modern standards, it doesn't look great, but I imagine it's pretty difficulty to gussy up a Dreamcast game without a huge overhaul. But it seems a tad prettier than a straight port, at least.

    Hey guys, things are obviously getting a little tense here the past couple of days. As someone who's only lurked in the forums every once in a while, I'm only aware of bits and pieces of what's going on right now with everybody.

    With summer half way over, August is ripe for the picking with some top titles being released on all consoles

    The video-games industry has been around for a very long time and throughout the years many titles have been released. Just like everything else, there has to have been a badly, inappropriately named titles. Around the globe you come across badly named products, names and places and video-games are not exempt from this. Obviously, this is not a list to comment on the actual gameplay or quality of the game but just to highlight that maybe the game could have had a better thought out title. Also, these titles are in no particular order, just 10 that stood out for comedic reasons. Lets take a look at a few titles that made me question the developers thinking....

    As gamers, we are always waiting for the the next big reveal. Whether it is the next IP, the next game, or the next generation console. Three years ago, we all knew the next generation consoles (PS4/XBOX ONE) were coming, but we had no details. Then within two months of each other, we got our first details, and we our mouths starting to salivate. We were so excited! We wanted more! We needed more! Then at E3 we got more. Some good (PS4) and some bad (XBOX ONE)....

    I'm in the process of writing a *.d.ts file for express-handlebars. One of the functions takes a config object that looks like this: { extname: '.handlebars', compiled: { '/path/to/template': function () { ... }), precompiled: { '/path/to/template': 'precompiled template string' } } The piece that is bothering me is the object literals on both compiled and precompiled properties. Is it possible to type those object literals in TypeScript so that the compiled object literal only accepts values of type Function, and precompiled only would accept values of type String?...

    I try to make a program in java that's decrypting a text. Example: Input: ABKBFA Output: ABBA Rules: Keep first letter and the last letter jump over some letters dependence of alphabet (A-Z), The Alphabet has values A=1 B=2 C=3... So if the word is "HZBKRYAFEAAAAJ" it will first keep the letter H and because H=8 it will jump 8 steps and land on E. When it lands on E the word is HE but it is not finish . E=5 so 5 steps to jump and it lands on J and the word will be "HEJ". I have not come so far of how to solve this problem. Right now it only saves the last and the fitst public static void main(String[] args) { Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in); String text = sc.nextLine(); char[] alphabet = {'a','b','c','d','e','f','g','h','i','j','k','l','m','n','o','p','q','r','s','t','u','v','w','x','y','z'}; char firstLetter = ...

    I'm trying to figure out why the following code: { unsigned int a = 10; a = ~a; printf("%d\n", a); } a will be 00001010 to begin with, and after NOT opertaion, will transform into 11110101. What happens exactly when one tries to print a as signed integer, that makes the printed result to be -11? I thought i would end up seeing -5 maybe (according to the binary representation), but not -11. I'll be glad to get a clarification on the matter. Thank you!...

    I am working on a program where i have to find if a point lies inside a circle and data for which is given by user. I have prepared my algorithm but i am struggling to quantify the data given by the user to a particular container like list or a dictionary. It has to be in the format like below and is passed via a file as a parameter. Center: (2.12, -3.48); Radius: 17.22; Point: (16.21, -5) I tried this code below from sys import argv file_name = argv[1] fp = open(file_name,'r+') contents = [line.strip('\n') for line in fp] content = [item.split(' ') for item in contents] #content = fp.read().split(';') #commented print (contents, '\n' , content) Output is:- ['Center: (2.12, -3.48); Radius: 17.22; Point: (16.21, -5)'] [['Center:', '(2.12', '-3.48);', 'Radius:', '17.22;', 'Point:', '(16.21,', '-5)'] So, clearly i am nowhere near to get those integer values to solve the problem.

    I'm a Cobol for Z/OS, AS/400, and I'm trying to learn new programming languages to do a few things at home. So I've picked up Python and started giving it a try. But now I'm struck with a problem I can't understand why is happening, I've already researched a lot in many tutorials and in another questions about dictionaries around here, but still I have no idea what I'm doing wrong, any clarification be really appreciated. So, what I'm trying to do is, I go into a page on a server using lxml, and return from it a list of texts, and their corresponding links, after that, I want to create a dictionary with both results(texts as keys and links as values), but things are not going on as I expected. Here is my actual code: from lxml import html import requests page = requests.get('http://myexample.com.br/manga/') tree = html.fromstring(page.text) namelist = tree.xpath('//div[@class="manga_list"]/ul/li/a/text()') linklist = tree.xpath('//div[@class="manga...

    If I have a string S of length n, and a list of tuples (a,b), where a specifies the staring position of the substring of S and b is the length of the substring. To check if any substring overlaps, we can, for example, mark the position in S whenever it's touched. However, I think this will take O(n^2) time if the list of tuples has a size of n (looping the tuple list, then looping S). Is it possible to check if any substring actually overlaps with the other in O(n) time? Edit: For example, S = "abcde". Tuples = [(1,2),(3,3),(4,2)], representing "ab","cde" and "de". I want to the know an overlap is discovered when (4,2) is read. I was thinking it is O(n^2) because you get a tuple every time, then you need to loop through the substring in S to see if any character is marked dirty....

    Did you know weather satellites transmit their weather images over an FM frequency? And now that you know… You can intercept them yourself with a $10 FM radio dongle! American NOAA weather satellites are in a polar orbit around earth, and each one will pass the same point approximately every 12 hours. When it is overhead, the signal is strong enough to receive. After [Matt] found out this tidbit of knowledge, he had to learn how to intercept the images himself. The satellites transmit the images over the 137MHz band, and using a radio tuner USB dongle, you can record …read more...

    [Garrett Greenwood] plays Smash Brothers, and apparently quite seriously. So seriously that he needed to modify his controller with five Neopixels so that it flashed different color animations according to the combo he’s playing on the controller; tailored to match the colors of the moves of his favorite character, naturally. All of this happens with an ATtiny85 as the brains, which we find quite ambitious. Indeed, [Garrett] started out thinking he could simply read each of the inputs from the controller directly into the microcontroller at the heart of the whole thing, but then counted up how many wires that …read more...

    Do you happen to have any 15,000 volt capacitors sitting around? [Ludic Science] didn’t so he did the next best thing. He built some. If you understand the physics behind a capacitor (two parallel conductors separated by a dielectric) you won’t find the build process very surprising. [Ludic] uses transparency film as an insulator and aluminum foil for the conductive plates. Then he wraps them into a tube. He did throw in a few interesting tips about keeping the sheets smooth and how to attach the wires to the foil. The brown paper wrapper reminded us of old caps you …read more...

    If you get tired of charging batteries, you might be interested in [Hackarobot’s] energy harvesting demo. He uses a peltier device (although he’s really using it as a thermocouple which it is). A 1 farad super capacitor stores energy and an LTC3108 ultra low voltage converter with a 1:100 ratio transformer handles the conversion to a useful voltage. The truth is, the amount of energy harvested is probably pretty small–he didn’t really characterize it other than to light an LED. In addition, we wondered if a proper thermocouple would work better (some old Russian radios used thermocouples either in fireplaces …read more...

    The Internet of Things promises real-time monitoring of appliances, HVAC, and just about everything else in the home. One of the biggest technologies behind this is the smart meter, an electrical meter that will tell you how much power you’re sucking down from the grid at any given moment. A meter need not be smart, though, because [jlbrian7]’s entry for the Hackaday Prize does the same thing without an entirely new meter. [jlbrian]’s power monitor is a non-intrusive monitor for electrical systems, allowing anyone to retrofit an electrical meter – or just a single breaker panel – with smart meter …read more...

    Jigsaw puzzles are a fun and interactive way to spend an afternoon or twelve, depending on the piece count and your skill level. It’s exciting to find the pieces you need to complete a section or link two areas together, but if you have poor dexterity, excitement can turn to frustration when you move to pick them up. [thomasgruwez] had the disabled and otherwise fumble-fingered in mind when he created this pick and place jigsaw puzzle aid, which uses suction to pick up and transport puzzle pieces. The suction comes from an aquarium pump running in reverse, a hack we’ve …read more...

    [Jason Dorie] has been hard at work on his two-wheeled, self-balancing skateboard. He calls it the Sideway.

Under the deck is a pair of 24V 280W (about 1/3HP each) scooter motors which are driven by two 32A Sabertooth speed controllers. They’re run off a pair of 3 cell 5Ah LiPos which get him about 40 minutes of use — not …read more...
