» Breathe Slowly. If you need a visual indicator for mindful breathing this is perfect.     #


» Marp - Markdown Presentation Writer. Write slides (think "PowerPoint") in Markdown and use for a presentation. I love the idea of using just text to write these things...     #


» RINNIG Pinball Simulator. Awesome, I want one.     #


» Making DIY LED Fixtures. Costco has some shop light LED fixtures that regularly go on sale, I'll probably just pick up one or two of those to fill in the dim spots. I do like the idea though.     #

» HART: Homeland Security’s Massive New Database Will Include Face Recognition, DNA, and Peoples’ “Non-Obvious Relationships”. I wish we had some right to privacy in this country.     #

» How to Poop In a RESTOP Bag. They have some of these in Clear Creek Canyon (specifically at Canal Zone) and they have kept the area clean, I think it's a great idea.     #

» Envolysis, a wifi sensor without solder (just wires and a breadboard) to monitor various things.     #


» Hiker Trailers. I like them but I'm still in awe of how much they cost.     #

» lsofgraph. Wow, if I was still doing more sysadmin type work I'd be all over this.     #


» How to Install and Upgrade to a New Kernel on Linux Mint. Had to do this to get the touchpad on my new Thinkpad working correctly (multi-finger gestures and such). Worked great, wonder how long until my Mint install would catch-up to the kernel I need...     #

» A terminal emulator for CygWin. The suggestion for screen didn't work for me (permissions issues), however using git for picocom and just compiling/running works great! In case that page goes away, it's this:

git clone https://github.com/npat-efault/picocom; cd picocom && make

./picocom -b 115200 /dev/ttyS7

» 6 Card Games Every Man Should Know. Time to get learnin'!     #


» Awesome Linux Software. That's quite a list.     #


» Clink, Powerful Bash-style command line editing for cmd.exe. I've lamented the lack of history across cmd sessions for a while now (especially bad on work laptops where you may end up doing command line stuff and never have a record of what you've done...)     #


» Page.REST, an API for scraping websites. Costs $5 a year for access which I think is pretty reasonable.     #


» GnuBee Personal Cloud 2. I like the idea, I wonder how that exposed PCB would handle being in my basement (where it gets dusty...)     #

» Bits to Atoms: The Pi Score Arcade Cabinet. That came out fantastic, I want one!     #


» Street View Treks - El Capitan. That's pretty impressive, you can use Google Street View to "climb" El Cap.     #


» The end of an era: Saying goodbye to search.cpan.org. However it's not the end of searching CPAN, they have an amazing transition plan in place.     #


» The Cleanse (movie). The trailer looks great, I hope it gets wider release.     #


» 27 in 1 Adjustable Electric Soldering Iron Kit. That seems like a great kit for $25...     #
