Hackaday Links

MAKE:Blog has posted photos from their Make Faire at Euro OSCON. Have a look and you’ll see my co-conspirator Fabienne and regular commenter [Markie]. I know [led] was planning on attending. Did anyone else get a chance to go?

We were included in PC Mag’s Top 101 Web Sites under the category Computing – Experts. From the text it sounds like someone actually reads the site, which makes me even happier. [DigitalDame]

    someone stole the cvs cam trick and used it for school… is this good or bad? :/

    yeah, supposed to be original, wish my highschool would have something like this.

  2. i once destroyed a burned copy of radiohead’s ‘the bends’ i had lying around with an electric fly swatter. touching the cd to the swatter generated a spark, launching a tiny piece of hot foil stuff flying across the room to land in the carpet, where it was a bitch to vacuum out the next morning.

  3. The make fair was pretty good. The hubby and I went down to the Dam at about 8. You can tell from the pictures that most of the projects have been featured on the make blog or in the magazine. Our fat mugs make an appearance in _at least_ one of the pictures on the site :)

    The coolest parts were 1) getting a free copy of make (great for reading on the metro), and 2) seeing the e-paper reader in ‘real life’. The latter was the highlight for me. Oh yeah, free booze.

  4. Thank you for linking to my summer experiment: grng.

    Also, I have recently fixed the symlink issue in the tar file. A fresh new tarball should be uploaded so that people can use the code again. Thank you everyone that pointed out that issue.
