Joybubbles Whistler[edit] As a five-year old, Engressia discovered he could dial phone numbers by clicking the hang-up switch (“tapping”), and at the age of 7 he accidentally discovered that whistling at certain frequencies could activate phone switches.[4] A student at the University of South Florida in the late 1960s, he was given the nickname “Whistler” due to his ability to place free long distance phone calls by whistling, with his mouth, the proper tones. After a Canadian operator reported him for selling such calls for $1 at the university, he was suspended and fined $25 but soon reinstated;[4] he later graduated in philosophy and moved to Tennessee. According to FBI records, the phone company SBT&T first noticed his phreaking activities in summer 1968, and an employee of the Florida Bell Telephone Company illegally monitored Engressia’s telephone conversations and divulged them to the FBI.[4] Joybubbles[edit]

Augmented Reality with #Processing - Tutorial by Amnon Owed All of the visuals in the above video were created using NyArtoolkit for Processing. NyARToolkit is an augmented reality toolkit built with 100% pure Java. It is derived from ARToolkit-2.72.1. Like Processing itself it’s open source and free! In this tutorial you will learn how to use it to place computer generated imagery correctly onto real world footage. Secrets of the Little Blue Box Why this is the authoritative edition As published in the October 1971 issue of Esquire Magazine. by Ron Rosenbaum How to Build a Robot Tutorials - Society of Robots Computer Vision vs Machine Vision Computer vision and machine vision differ in how images are created and processed. Computer vision is done with everyday real world video and photography. Machine vision is done in oversimplified situations as to significantly increase reliability while decreasing cost of equipment and complexity of algorithms. As such, machine vision is used for robots in factories, while computer vision is more appropriate for robots that operate in human environments.

Responsive 3D Panel Layout A responsive layout experiment where we arrange panels in a grid-like structure and transition the elements with 3D effects.

The Original Hacker's Dictionary [This file, jargon.txt, was maintained on MIT-AI for many years, before being published by Guy Steele and others as the Hacker's Dictionary. Many years after the original book went out of print, Eric Raymond picked it up, updated it and republished it as the New Hacker's Dictionary. Unfortunately, in the process, he essentially destroyed what held it together, in various ways: first, by changing its emphasis from Lisp-based to UNIX-based (blithely ignoring the distinctly anti-UNIX aspects of the LISP culture celebrated in the original); second, by watering down what was otherwise the fairly undiluted record of a single cultural group through this kind of mixing; and third, by adding in all sorts of terms which are "jargon" only in the sense that they're technical. This page, however, is pretty much the original, snarfed from MIT-AI around 1988. -- jpd.] Verb doubling: a standard construction is to double a verb and use i as a comment on what the implied subject does.

8 Responsive jQuery Slider Plugins Whether you’re already a pro at creating responsive web sites or your just learning what it’s all about, it’s good to have some scripts handy that you can easily integrate into your site. We all know how popular image and content sliders are now, and for good reason. So we decided to round up some jQuery slider plugins that are already responsive – meaning they will adapt to the size of their container. Flexslider FlexSlider is an awesome, fully responsive jQuery slider plugin. Stanford Javascript Crypto Library The Stanford Javascript Crypto Library (hosted here on GitHub) is a project by the Stanford Computer Security Lab to build a secure, powerful, fast, small, easy-to-use, cross-browser library for cryptography in Javascript. SJCL is easy to use: simply run sjcl.encrypt("password", "data") to encrypt data, or sjcl.decrypt("password", "encrypted-data") to decrypt it. For users with more complex security requirements, there is a much more powerful API, described in the documentation and illustrated in this demo page.
