A varróiskolám történetében én voltam a harmadik férfi, aki jelentkezett a varrótanfolyamra: az előző kettő is programozó volt. Így már jobban belegondolva talán nem is annyira váratlan fordulat az új hobbim.
Mindennapjaim során teljesen normális és magától értetődő, hogy ha valamit kényelmetlen használni vagy nem pont úgy működik, ahogy szeretném, akkor írok hozzá egy scriptet, hogy...View more »
A Cirrus in Texas suffered an engine failure causing the pilot to deploy the plane’s captive parachute, which floats the entire plane down to the ground. Despite coming down in what appears to be a fairly populated area there were no injuries and the plane even looks to be in decent shape. (No idea what kind of internal stresses the chutes cause though). This makes over 150 people who have...View more »
In 2014, Randy and Kristy Pitchford found that they needed a personal assistant to help manage their busy lives. He was the CEO of Borderlands maker Gearbox Software, she the owner of the Dallas-area gaming-themed cafe Nerdvana. They hired John Wright Martin, who worked for the couple for two years. In 2016, they parted ways. Now, the Pitchfords say that Martin embezzled millions of dollars...View more »

In New York state, black women are four times more likely to die during childbirth than white women. In order to combat this deeply alarming trend, the state’s health department is piloting a program that will expand Medicaid coverage to cover doula services.

I understand that the NES Classic is meant to feel as authentic as possible, but really, I’d be okay breaking the illusion to use a wireless controller. 8Bitdo makes a wireless controller designed just for the NES Classic , with the same nightmarishly pointy rectangular design, and it’s just $22 on Amazon today. It even includes Turbo A and B buttons, if you’re a dirty cheater.
I’m a sucker for anything that takes text data and turns it into something visual. This week I came across Location History Visualizer, a tool that creates a heat map using your Google Location History.
To create your own, you’ll have to first download your location history from Google. You do that by going to Google Takeout. All your Google data is toggled on by default, so first select...View more »
Oh jeez it’s been nearly a month since I did one of these… oops.
Anyways, I recently purchased the full OST for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and man it’s fantastic. I wish Nintendo would release more of their game OSTs onto itunes so that I wouldn’t have to use unsavory means to get their games’ songs on my iphone.
What are some game OSTs you love and would love to be able to purchase on itunes?
Now...View more »
The minimalist habit tracker habitctl runs in the command line. (If you don’t know what the command line is , this is not the tool for you.) As such, it’s one of the simplest habit trackers you can use, while still being more sophisticated than a text file (which was developer Sebastian Morr’s previous habit-tracking method).
The command line isn't just for...View more »
Lynn Redden, the superintendent of the Onalaska Independent School District in Onalaska, Texas, was caught being racist online when he commented “When you need precision decision making you can’t count on a black quarterback,” on a Facebook post about the Houston Texans’ Week 2 loss to the Titans.
Redden was upset about Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson ending the game with an ill-advised...View more »

Tumblr has mysteriously vanished from Apple’s App Store, and it’s not clear why.
The issue was first reported Friday by tech blog PiunikaWeb, which pointed to user reports that the app wasn’t working and noted that some users were “not able to turn off Safe Mode.” As of Sunday, the app was still nowhere to be found in the iOS store. Per PiunikaWeb:

The BMW E30 M3 is great and all, but if you want a racy German touring car from that era that really wows the crowd, what you need is a Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5 16V Evo II . But it doesn’t just look good, it sounds absolutely incredible as well. And I don’t mean “it sounds good for a four-cylinder,” it sounds wild FULL...View more »
