Hi Everyone.   As you know, we've been busy adding new locations to our Atlas of Scientific Achievement above. We're now up to ~120 data points tracking everything from the invention of the first transistor to the formulation of the Big Bang theory. From the invention of the laser to the discovery of the earliest hominids in East Africa. It's been amazing watching the history of human discovery come alive before our very eyes, and we're thrilled to see that you're also getting into it, and ...
The Raspberry Pi has been a huge phenomenon in the maker scene, spawning a wide range of accessories, add-ons and even specialised 'Hats'. One of the most underappreciated peripherals would have to be the small Raspberry Pi camera board. At first look it might seem to be the same as any cheap USB camera, but its functionality is far beyond that. The special 15 pin ribbon cable the camera board uses enables it to interface directly with the graphics processor on a Raspberry Pi. This allows it to ...

Hello forum,   being totally new to the Raspberry world, I hope to get a few comments and answers to my (maybe crazy) thoughts about using a Raspberry farm instead of Intel i7 systems to serve as a crawling and parsing system.   Application background: I have developed my own crawling  (internally using wget) and very specialized parsing software. The goal is to permanently crawl and parse a couple of 10 million websites websites for special purposes (very different from normal ...
  My dog Penny is one of the best. She has the two critical commands of ‘come’ and ‘stay’ down pat so well that I can go for a run with her off-leash here in Denver. She’s gentle with our newborn baby, and she doesn’t destroy things. Her only issue is that she goes BONKERS for food. My wife and I have done a great job training it out of her when we’re around so we no longer have to worry about a cheese board sitting on the low coffee table, but ...
