Podcast: Play in new window | Download I have domains from Network Solutions, GoDaddy, and Register.com, but there are many other registrars — some of which must be better than these. Network Solutions is too expensive and difficult to work with, GoDaddy is annoying and greedy, while Register.com may be great but I don’t have a good comparison.
Beesource.com is currently compiling the best practices and start-up wisdom from the Beesource beekeeping community ! We’ll develop this information into a concise, easy-to-read article and post it here in the near future. If you’d like to join the discussion with wisdom of your own, the Beekeeping forum is located here .

This is what you need: 1 Ikea RIBBA shadow box - $10 98 white LEDs - $7-10 (buy in bulk on ebay) 98 1KOhm resistors - $3 1 Arduino (or an ATMega168/ATMega328 and extra hardware - 5V regulator, crystal, etc) - $7 (for standalone chip and extra hardware) or $30 for arduino USB board 3 ULN2003A Driver ICs - $1.89 at Digikey 3 HCF4094 shift registers - $1.44 at Digikey 1 Barrel-plug connector - $0.38 at Digikey 2 Buttons - scavenged from old electronics 1 6V or 7V DC wall wart - scavenged from old electronics, or ~$4 online 1 sheet colored paper (used for a hint of color around the border) 1 9" square piece of cardboard (used to hold LEDs in place) 1 cereal box (cut up to make light baffles - see step 3) 1 black garbage bag 2 printed transparencies (see attached pdf on step 2) - $1 1 protoboard for microcontroller, driver ICs, etc. - $5 Total cost: around $44 (using standalone ATMega168) or $67 (if you buy a full Arduino) optionally a breadboard is useful for prototyping the circuit
This is a Part Three of a collection of the columns I wrote for Intellectual Capital during the all too brief years that publication existed. Published by Pete DuPont (former Governor of Delaware), it was a splendid collection of ideas and thoughts. It was also a victim of the dot bust. These are presented more or less in the order they were written. The final as it appeared in Intellectual Capital was somewhat different: the editor, Bob Kolasky, managed to make them shorter, and, I hate to admit it, better.
joey Happy new year! I am excited about all the sex I will maybe have this year. And the friendly hugs. But those are better experienced in the moment, where I think sex anticipation is pretty great all on its own even before the actual sex.
Union troops plan to attack Manassas tomorrow, according to reports from the frontlines. Forces are now encamped just outside of Fairfax and Centreville, Virginia, about three miles North of Manassas, where all columns have gathered in preparation of tomorrow’s attack. The day was spent planning the attack and gathering reconnaissance information – troops were given the day to rest and prepare before marching on the Confederates. Thursday’s Battle at Blackburn’s Ford near Manassas, called “ the first engagement in eastern Virginia of any importance ” by the New York Times , appears to have resulted in a slight victory for the Confederates, although not a decisive one.
This is our version of the classic fairy tale “The Troll Under The Bridge . I wrote this in response to a lot of social justice issues that were bouncing around our city that year – none of which, alas, have been resolved to anyone’s satisfaction or needs – and was also inspired by my readings of (and brief correspondence with) Prof. Jack Zipes . This story seemed to be a good mix between a classic folktale that advised for and supported a local xenophobia to ensure the safety of townsfolk when confronted by unknown individuals who seemed all too ready to prey on the unsuspecting – and some of the uncomfortable realities we seem to have trouble addressing in our current day to day lives.
