PirateCade is an Impressive Feat of Woodworking and Design

Retro Arcade Machine Keeps the Classics

A six month journey of blood sweat and tears is finally over for [David Carver] and what he is left with is nothing short of beautiful. He calls it the PirateCade. We call it the perfect arcade cabinet.

This project is actually [David’s] very first Raspberry Pi project – at least it was, until his Pi crapped out on him. After running into too many problems with it and SD card corruptions, [David] decided against the RetroPie project platform and decided to upgrade to a full-blown PC, using an AtomicFE front-end and the Ultimark Ipac.

The entire cabinet is hand made out of solid wood; he didn’t have access to any fancy CNC routers or laser cutters. We gotta hand it to him, he’s quite the cabinet maker for an electronics guy.

Mavericks/Haswell Kernel Patch for Early Reboot


racerrehabman

One of the big changes for mach_kernel in OS X Mavericks is the relocation of CPU power management into the kernel (for Haswell only). What used to happen in AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext, now happens in the kernel. Since this kernel writes to potentially locked MSRs, this can be a problem for computers where the BIOS cannot be patched, or simply where the owner of the computer does not want to patch the BIOS. But since Apple did not include the code to XCPM (XNU CPU Power Management) in the sources provided for the 10.9 kernel, if you build mach_kernel from sources, the XCPM code and thus the code writing to locked MSRs is not included. I wrote about this initially when I discovered it while trying to get Mavericks running on a Haswell-based HP laptop. See here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/293503-haswell-early-reboot-mavericks-locked-msrs-and-hp-envy-15-j063cl-i7-4700mq/

As mentioned in that post, my reason for building the kernel myself was to…

How to choose the right iOS app for your note taking needs


Penultimate syncs with Evernote and i Love it, also Bamboo Paper is great

Gigaom

There are many different ways you can capture a thought or idea when using your iPhone or iPad. Some apps like Day One behave more like a journal, keeping things in order by date. Other apps like Appigo’s Todo allow you to track your daily tasks by checking items off a list. There are even apps that can help you organize your thoughts like MindNode.

There are so many options available that finding a simple note taking app to suits your needs can be a challenge. The following list highlights apps that distinguish themselves with a certain key feature:

Note App Feature List

Popular choices

Notes – The default notes app that comes standard issue on both iOS and OS X, the Notes app, relies on support from your email provider. But not all email providers support notes as a feature of their email service. Many email providers treat notes as nothing…

So I wanna Try this – – – – – This should be fun


So I wanna Try this - - - - - This should be fun

Has anybody seen any of these?? Its part of the hawkeye initiative. Something about women being offended by some of the absurd poses that female comic characters are drawn in. I think its awesome, might even inspire comic artists to center on the sexiness of the boys. I mean really it would be nice to see our male heroes (and Villains), especially the actually gay ones, looking sexier, and why not take away most of the clothes and leave em barely there. Look here at the AMAZING ass on Hawkeye.

I by far am not a great artist, but have often surprised myself with some of the stuff I’ve come up with. So, i think I’m gonna try a few of these. To my understanding the general theme is Male heroes in the absurd poses of the women(which we all know there are many). But nothing is absolutely concrete. Send me suggestions and I’ll see what i come up with.

Bubblegum Screw “Filthy! Rich! Lolitas!”


Veglam

BubblegumScewFRL London-based glam punk/garage rock’n’roll with a big love for leopard print! Even though they get influenced by British punk rock such as The CLASH (“Tura Satana”, “First Against The Wall”), BUBBLEGUM SCREW seems to be more influenced by the early American punk rock’n’roll scene, “Second Class Citizen” and “Lolita” almost sound like DEAD BOYS songs (Mark Thorn’s vocals really help with that), and the title “Play Some Fucking Stooges” should be clear enough for all of you! Quite a good tribut to Iggy’s band. The ghost of the RAMONES is also wandering around (“I Wanna Fuck You So Much It Hurts Me”) at times.
The production of these 12 songs is raw, but well, in these “over-produced pro-tools” days, I won’t complain about that, especially when it doesn’t affect the quality and energy of the songs (“Glam Rock Doll” or the 60s garage influenced “Uncensor Myself”…)
Unlike many British bands…
