| Tech Board|| Any Arduino Programmers? - MaroonWhite on 6/12/14 at 7:36 pm|
So I've been working on some projects involving Arduinos and Raspberry Pi's. Anyone else on the tech board working on anything interesting?
This Arduino circuit tracks the current, minimum, and maximum air temperatures using two DS18B20 temperature sensors (it's been on since last February, so t...

I finally got around to watching [link=(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DjqR6OucBc)]Restrepo[/link] on Netflix. Very good documentary about the Afghan War in the Korangal Valley.
This is one of those documentaries where there is no narration (although it has occasional subtitles), yet is very ef...

I'm planning on taking it to the range tomorrow. I can't wait to try it out.

Has anyone heard of/watched this series? I was randomly watching PBS shows on Roku and came across [link=(http://video.pbs.org/program/future-states/episodes/)]FutureStates[/link]
I watched 5 or 6 of them (they're only about 25 minutes in length) and they are actually pretty interesting. The ep...

I finished Season 1 (all 3 episodes :nana:) on Netflix this weekend and was thoroughly impressed.
I'm a big fan of Doyle's Holmes character and never thought any actor could come close to Jeremy Brett's portrayal in the Granada Television series. I think Benedict Cumberbatch comes close....

Admittedly, there is nothing they've recorded or has been bootlegged that is obscure at this point.
Post what you think the casual fan may not have heard before.

Hi Infidelity was obviously a business decision that paid off well for them...but before that they were really putting out some great rock music.

I never see this group mentioned on this forum but I that think their music is amazing.
This short-lived band may have rivaled U2's success in the 80's had it not been for Ian Curtis's premature death.

I was at Academy today and picked up a box of .22LR Birdshot. I had never heard of these before and was wondering if anyone on the OB has ever shot this round.
Apparently they're really only good for killing medium to large sized bugs. :rotflmao:
