Raspberrypi Retropi 4 player arcade machine, based off instructables 4-Player-Pedestal-Arcade-Cabinet-for-MAME by "severdhed"

quote [ I had always wanted one of these as a kid and I was like "Hey, can't I make one?" it took forever and it was expensive (I don't know the final tally but way cheaper than buying a completed one) and every time I see it I can't believe I made the flip'n thing. ]

This is kind of an update of mt January 23rd 2017 Retro Pi Two Player Arcade Table

This is a 4 player version. I realized I don't think I posted this project on here.

Enjoy!

Edit: SP if you're still lurking, I did indeed clean the garage.

Ethereum Is Coding's New Wild West | Backchannel

quote [ Ethereum is more than just digital cash. It's also a decentralized computing platform—and developers are all over it. ]

Code is run publicly, but users are pseudonymous. It’s like Amazon Web Services, except instead of Amazon as the seller and users as the buyer, users can play either role. No individual controls the system. That makes Ethereum something genuinely new—something unprecedented.

Will It Sous Vide?: The Head of a Pig

quote [ Hello, and welcome to a very special edition of Will It Sous Vide?, the column where I usually make whatever you want me to with my immersion circulator. Not only are we finally cooking a long-requested dish—porchetta di testa—but we, as you can see, have video. ]

Sous vide pig head. This girl made me chuckle too.

2 tablespoons of Kosher salt
Freshly ground pepper (Just grind it right over the face so there’s pepper all over.)
A lot of garlic (I used six cloves.)
3 or 4 sprigs of fresh rosemary
Red pepper flakes to taste (A teaspoon or two is good.)
The zest of one large lemon
1 pig face.

Biohackers Encoded Malware in a Strand of DNA

quote [ a group of researchers from the University of Washington has shown for the first time that it’s possible to encode malicious software into physical strands of DNA, so that when a gene sequencer analyzes it the resulting data becomes a program that corrupts gene-sequencing software and takes control of the underlying computer. ]

It's not practical, but it is clever.

Google DeepMind AI Declares Galactic War on StarCraft

quote [ A bot that beat StarCraft would be much more impressive than mastering the board game Go.

Google’s DeepMind is taking on the multiplayer space-war videogame StarCraft II. ]

Perhaps only the Koreans can protect us from the upcoming AI onslaught.

Feinstein to Critics: ‘I Consider Myself a Liberal’

quote [ But there’s no denying that the energy in the Democratic Party is currently with the far left, as evidenced by the single-payer advocates who gave Feinstein so much trouble at a town hall meeting in April. For all her accomplishments, Feinstein’s claim that she’s a liberal is not entirely accurate. ]

Interesting conversation.

Death of a F***ing Salesman

quote [ A few years ago in New York, Al Pacino starred in a revival of David Mamet’s Glengarry Glen Ross, and the casting was poignant: In 1992, a much younger and more vigorous Pacino had played the role of hotshot salesman Ricky Roma in the film adaptation of the play; in the Broadway revival, a 72-year-old Pacino played the broken-down has-been Shelley Levene.


Glengarry Glen Ross is the Macbeth of real estate, full of great, blistering lines and soliloquies so liberally peppered with profanity that the original cast had nicknamed the show “Death of a F***ing Salesman.” But a few of those attending the New York revival left disappointed ... ]
