Bunny sent me this video of landing a
rover on Mars. She liked it because the rover reminded her of Wall-E (one
of her favorite films). It's also strikes me as silly that NASA would seriously consider covering the rover with
beach balls and have to bounce to a landing.
Then again, considering what it takes
to land on Mars, maybe it wasn't such a silly idea after all.
The Cotton Candy
Computer (link via Wlofie) is an interesting computer in
that it's a USB sized
computer. Granted, it's a bit more expensive than the Raspberry Pi but the form factor is
way smaller and could make (possibly) a decent environment for
developing Android applications.

You have my permission to link freely to any entry here. Go
ahead, I won't bite. I promise.
The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: https://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
