      • I love how so many people and organizations still insist on using three gears all interconnected as an illustration without realizing that none of the gears can actually be turned like that. It makes a perfect metaphor for the way all of the different Medi-Cal subsystems (don't) work.

        • I had an Occulus Rift on my head for the first time. The resolution is horrible. The motion tracking was good. They tested a method for viewing objects and discovering volumetric data only with the head-mounted display. It worked pretty well but it had some flaws but were inevitable because they had to unify the interface for all sorts of different input devices.

          • What a bummer. I was certainly sure that my Arduino Uno was able to send keyboard commands over the USB port but I was wrong. Only later versions (Due, Leonardo, Micro, Zero) are able to do that.

          • What does "ill-fated" mean in a context of "the journey proved to be ill fated, ( lists of things that went bad ) . It leaves me to believe it is more luck related than fate related... Well unless if you consider things like diarhea to be a fate

            • @adiwan ... I can see that work in eye eyes of gamergaters when talking about Anita Sarkeesian and her visit to the UN. I can also see that working for that time city-hall decided to build a nuclear waste silo next to farmland. But I do not think I can see that work for one of my family-members describing a trip to one of her relatives whom she has a bit of a tough history with ( and, yeah, a hard head probably )

                    • My ears hurt a little playing with the buzzer and arduino. I can play some little tunes with it. Next I'll use the buzzer to signal the detected distance of a ultrasound sensor. The closer the object, the faster it beeps.

                      • Soldering looks so much easier on youtube. I did a decent job connecting header pins for the first time to my arduino in my opinion. To my surprise none of the extra pins I soldered on work. I suspect that the factory used a faulty PCB and all of those aren't even connected. All the recepticles that were already there work though. The arduino isn't broken but not as feature-rich as it could be. Initially those extra pins shouldn't be there as I bought it.

                            • @thelastgherkin ... I got sweaty palms and keep recalling bad Tim B^Uckley side-stories where suddenly a well established caracter is in the future trying to mine space-rocks for a living in the future, or is some crime-fighting badass in a bat-cosplay. Where "bat" is some sort of gaming console, you get the picture. ... However the actual drawing is rather good. HOWEVER, they should have used non-established caracters, now it looks just like they are cashing in on a famous name ( ... sort of like Lunatics Unleashed ? ... ). What is next ? TopCat as a Science Fiction swindler inside of a space station ? ... ... ... Get out of my head Quark, and Odo, and Commander Sisko !
