Compressor Piping

Apparently, you can use PEX tubing instead of piping for air compressors.

Die Hard Rail Roaders

Lay their own track. Saw a piece of non-plastic backed track and wondered where people get the stuff.

Flying

A cheaper way to be a pilot, buy a plane to get your hours in.

Raspberry PI

Had a great USB 720p camera that is compatible with my PI, but could only get 1 frame per five seconds out. So listening to Rossmann and he was rambling on about IP cameras, now I don't care about his level of quality that much as it is just for fun. But I'm going to look into the frame rate I can get. My goal is 1 frame per second without the god damn SD card going read only which only seems to happen in the car.

Older Shows/BBC

Trying to watch a lot of older stuff and it is just so slow, anyway found out it is possible to speed-up Hulu. I speed-up Youtube to 1.25 and even 1.50 for the really slow speakers already.

Chrome has something too. Chrome is my multimedia browser, while Firefox is my text browser, so it is a good fit. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/...

Reskinnable Tubular Car

Makes sense in that you don't have to have the exact car or worry about destroying it. I imagine it makes fantasy cars easier too, but takes the fun out of actually have it built. I wonder if it would make an Automan reboot possible. :-)

Queues Galore

Trying to find something reliable that doesn't cause problems and couldn't remember the name, then I found this site. I use Redis for a project at work since it allows me to make a bunch of simpler programs all work together across machines, rather than I giant one.

Expiring Shows

A Touch of Frost- 26 Days left. The first couple of episodes sucked, but it finally picked-up and I actually want to watch the remaining.

http://www.hulu.com/grid/a-touch-of-frost?video_type=episode

http://www.crackle.com/odyssey-5/ - 27 Days left. Another one that is pretty good for what it is. A reasonable Sci-Fi series from 10 years ago, but with a bit of unnecessary nudity since it was on a premium channel.

Intel Motherboards

As a rule, I only buy AMD and ASUS, but my collection of computers does include 2 Intel Motherboards. Finally, got the aforementioned system to boot. I had a SATA card since the Intel Motherboard doesn't support 2 TB drives. On a hunch I looked through my pile of junk and installed a card I got for a few bucks at Surplus Gizmos. Ubuntu actually installed and completely booted. As a plus, it now shows the drive in the BIOS boot messages.
