hackaday links

yuk logo

Make joke aobut Mr. Yuk; get a free logo from [mrdelayer]. [led_scorched] also thought it was a good idea.

Here is a good howto on OSX86 [via everywhere]

Japanese door that barely opens, check the video

MAKE:Blog‘s reverse case mod reminded me of this pic [jamie moffett] had sent in a while back

The DIrtY MIRT is definitely illegal now. I have all the parts, but I don’t even want to do the proof of concept anymore.

Build your own poodle [tim]

That’s all I’ve got for links; seriously start submitting.

    I think hackaday has really absorbed a good portion of the hackish links available on the WWW.

    If I find good stuff, I submit.

    Good luck hackaday, live long.

    where are the $100 laptops? did i just miss them or are they not posted as of yet?

  3. mr. yuky says:
  4. mrdelayer says:

    that door is neat. i want one.

  5. Mental says:

    yea since its a federal crime now the dirty mirt probably isnt such a good idea, seeing how the control center for all stoplights and everything is notified every time a light is pre-empted. if you dont want to make it anymore you could send the parts over my way. id pay shipping, haha

  6. H8tred says:

    Hah, I was messing with the original logo in photoshop, and then I got bored and went to sleep. I’m no hacker, I’m a slacker…

  7. mental says:

    oh yea did anybody ever come up with the parts list from mouser for the mirt

  8. ajp2116 says:

    Some of the links are working properly, they just redirect me back to hackaday.com Someone should check that out.

    Is anyone else having the same problem as me or am I just not looking in the right place?

  9. ajp2116 says:

    I take it back, I’m very sorry about that, I was just looking in the wrong place, I retract my previous statement.

  10. kowkiller says:

    the poodle thing is kick a$$. i couldn’t stop laughing. my brother’s got a greyhound. i bet i could give it a poodle look too.

  11. chris says:

    that mr.yuk logo looks like crap compared to the good old skull. changing the logo, would be like destroying hackaday.com all together… think of the children…

  12. CaptSnuffy says:

    extra hd and nothing to do today…

    i’m going to install OSX

    i’ll have Windows, Mac, AND Linux (Fedora) on the same machine!


  13. CaptSnuffy says:

    note: looks like i cant install osx

    my humble athlon xp doesn’t have SSE2 and apparently you need it

  14. omegakidd says:

    So where can I find detailed information on how they made this work? Is it still using vmware for any kind of emulation? I just don’t understand how this can run on an x86.

  15. carpespasm says:

    apple’s just re-compiled the os to run nativly on any x86 with sse2, though you need sse3 to run non-native mac programs through rossetta. it’s no different than debian being run on 12 different platforms.

  16. As a side note to everyone reading the “turn a pc into a bookshelf” article – depending on where you live, taking items that are in the trash (or being thrown out) can be constituted as stealing. In Colorado, all of the stuff in trash cans are considered property of the trash company. Keep the great links coming!

  17. The town I’m gonna go to college at is known throughout the state as a dumpster-diver paradise. (Well, I’m excited.):D

  18. mrdelayer says:

    jared harleytha: around here (that is, in texas), if it’s out on the curb, in a dumpster, or in a trashcan, you’re allowed to take it; it’s no longer anyone’s property (until someone comes along and grabs it, that is)

  19. mental says:

    seriously, does anybody know the parts list for the mirt for mouser.com . if anybody knows it let me know at dcwaffles@gmail.com thanks

  20. Steve Worcester says:

    Trash talking: Portland’s Mayor, Police Chief and DA get there trash picked and published. http://www.wweek.com/story.php?story=3485

    Oh man the Poodle suit is a hoot! They need to work out one for Pit Bulls quick.

  21. Clueless Wonder says:

    A mouser parts list?

    If you are so stupid that you can’t look up parts on mouser.com yourself then go to the Police station and turn yourself in now.

    You would obviously just get caught instantly, you big dope. Save everyone the trouble.

  22. Cerebron says:

    I didn’t see how the federal government can regulate state traffic on state roads, so I looked it up –


    It looks like it’s only illegal to use it in a way that would affect interstate commerce (weak argument) or to sell it in interstate commerce. (good case)

    “The term `unauthorized use’ does not apply to use of a traffic signal preemption transmitter for classroom or instructional purposes.’.”

    The federal government makes a *very* weak case regarding interstate commerce here, and I think it wouldn’t stand up in court at all.

    The arguments in the article “Maniacs going 80mph with an endless string of green lights! Ambulances crashing and exploding! OMG!” are also disgustingly weak and fear-mongering. Bah. I say build it and screw them.
