Team Hack-A-Day is now ranked #620 and climbing. Shouldn’t you be folding?
Music Thing has a couple cool videos featuring live looping. If you want a little history try Bassline Baseline, the story of the 303. It starts off slow, but is pretty interesting. [via Screenhead]
Screenhead also has the very humorous Massachusetts Turnpike hacking.
[John Tokash] has been poking around under the Micro’s faceplate. It has a 5V connection, but he hasn’t been able to get a reading. Nintendo is known for novel feedback systems so I’m guessing they’ll be releasing games that come with special faceplates that light up at appropriate times.
I wish I had seen OpenSourceCMS when set up my first website. It lets you test drive default installs of different CMS. [via Download Squad]

re: turnpike hacking
yeah, they tell you that you have to slow down to 10-15 miles an hour to go through with the ‘epass’ type systems. in florida we have sunpass, which is an rfid system built by transcore…i’ve been through one of those stations about at 50 miles an hour and it read just fine. if you travel on the turnpike and try to go through the sunpass only lanes at 15 miles and hour you’ll get hit.
Since when is making computer parts out of paper cool?
With that being said, try my paper-craft floppy drive. If you make it with 110 lb. stock it is just about as useful as a real floppy drive!
