Zerg demo - spawned for each web request: "
300 sec is how long it takes to launch a Linux instance to availability on Amazon EC2.
50 sec is the time between power on and the lock screen for an Android phone.
4.1 sec ago is when we received your request. Within this time we managed to create a new Xen instance, boot it, and run the application that rendered the page you are viewing. By the time you are done reading this, the instance will be gone."

HIDUINO: Your Arduino is Now A MIDI Interface

HIDUINO: Your Arduino is Now A MIDI Interface: "[Dimitri Diakopoulos] dropped into our tip line to let us know his HIDUINO project. The HIDUINO is a set of firmware for the ATmega8u2 used in the new revisions of the Arduino  (Uno, and Mega2560 for example).  Once the HIDUINO is loaded your Arduino can show up as any HID compliant device you wish, no extra drivers necessary. This means that using this firmware, music software such as Max, Ableton, Reaktor etc can read and write MIDI directly to/from the Arduino. Currently the project is for direct USB-MIDI communication but could be altered to act as a variety of HID devices."

How do you completely delete projects in Xcode? - Stack Overflow

How do you completely delete projects in Xcode? - Stack Overflow: "For Xcode 4, you can go to the Organizer by clicking the button at the top right, and then you'll see your projects. Right click the one you want to remove, and choose "Remove from Organizer..." This will remove all the associated data. I don't know if this is an option in previous versions of Xcode."

A Most Peculiar Test Drive | Blog | Tesla Motors

A Most Peculiar Test Drive | Blog | Tesla Motors: "Cruise control was never set to 54 mph as claimed in the article, nor did he limp along at 45 mph. Broder in fact drove at speeds from 65 mph to 81 mph for a majority of the trip and at an average cabin temperature setting of 72 F.
At the point in time that he claims to have turned the temperature down, he in fact turned the temperature up to 74 F."
