  • Shotgun shells – might be doable – but I wouldn’t…..

  • It’s a new age….Ivory towers have become expensive and they have to walk among the normal folk now…

  • Woo hoo…RobertC just autographed my redbox!!….and I almost got to touch his beard…..[pause]

  • the ‘ell is wrong with you guys???….I’d much rather look at the young lady in today’s video!!!

    …was gonna make a bad joke about ‘beards’, but I’ll keep that one to myself….

  • Jeremy: What a funny noise it’s making!

    Caractacus: It’s talking to us–all engines talk!

    Jemima: What’s it saying? It’s saying Chitty chitty, chitty chitty, chitty chitty, chitty chitty, chitty chitty, (Bang - Bang) Bang Bang! chitty chitty Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Chitty Bang Bang Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Chitty Bang Bang Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Chitty Bang Bang Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Oh you pretty Chitty Bang Bang, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang We love you.

  • ya know….you promised me this ORKO outfit would make me an instant chic magnet with the cosplay crowd…but I dont see a single female here, so……

  • Primarily this one: PiTFT - Assembled 480x320 3.5" TFT+Touchscreen for Raspberry Pi PRODUCT ID: 2097

    (which is new, even though I thought they had 3.2in one as well which is what I’m currently looking for (they 2.8 but that’s just too small).

  • Just because I’m lazy…can someone point what would be the difference between these screens and similar ones sold by Adafruit? They seem to be pretty similar except when it comes to the price.

  • Technically it may be a failure, but you learn so much in the process…may be good topic for the Hack-A-Day Fail of the week (may not be very helpful cuz most of those bowels are eternally stuck in the TIGHT position )…

  • My 4 year old grand son, loves to walk around and talk to things…he has a tremendous imagination, That being said, I’d love to create a hate, etc. that when it wears it it will detect where he is and randomly have things TALK to HIM!.

    IE, he likes to talk to m=himself in the mirror, wouldn’t it be great if the mirror talked back? or the TV? or his Iron Man toy?

    I’d probably use NFC to detect things and have the lily pad play a different file based on the NFC tag.
