Just been checking out the 'Tubes again and I've just watched Mike's (Of Mikeselectricstuff fame ) latest post, showing what's happened

to all his playing around with Ipod Nano displays. Looks like they have been integrated into an art installation at Weil Cornell Medical College.

Obviously more than just Mike worked on it but it's nice to see what you can do on your own in the shed if you try hard enough!!


Congrats Mike!



Video from Hirsch and Mann showing their work on the wall

Found this nice little video on the TED channel of da 'Tube.  Raffaello D'Andrea demonstrating the abilities of

Quadracopters balancing,carrying,catching & throwing both as individuals and as an organised unit.

Eventually he lets the magic slip when he shows the host of operators and computer systems driving the

Whirling Dervishes.

I was reminded by a member of our local LUG (Thanks Stuart) that IANA is now allocating the last set of IPV4 address blocks.


This is as good a time as ever to jump ship to IPv6 problem is that many are just not confident with v6  technology !!


As a bit of a helping hand I'm providing here a quick link to GOGO6's Youtube Channel which has many good training  videos


Looks like the big push is out with multiple News sources releasing the specs to the Nvidia Jetson TK1.

It certainly looks like a beast but at a significant price point of $192 but at least it has a SATA port

and a Kepler core(Same as in the Titan video card) for each of those Dollars !!
