UBASIC/Scripts Important Remarks Edit The scripts posted below were written by CHDK users, and are contributed as is. Please note that prior to 2009 a number of special builds of CHDK were in general release and some used different uBASIC commands and features. With the unification of CHDK into one release trunk, some of these older scripts may not run on current versions of CHDK.

I put some timber feet on the box and sanded them real smooth so it glides easy over the carpet.

Intro Carvey Is A Powerful CNC Machine For The Rest Of Us Robotic CNC machines – cutting systems that use spinning tools to swipe through metal, wood, and plastic – are cool but ugly. Most of them are as big as a fridge and designed to carve out objects in a few minutes but none will sit quietly on your desk and do its business with aplomb and elegance. Now, however, there’s Carvey. Carvey is the Form 1 of CNC. Designed to be a seamless, well-designed tool for designers and makers, you program it by entering a tool path – basically the movements the cutting head will make – and pressing a button.

On Jan. 1, a merger with its rival far-right party, the German People's Union (DVU), went into effect, thereby combining their numbers just in time for a year that will see parliamentary elections in seven of Germany's 16 federal states. In a New Year's speech, Voigt confidently told his supporters that 2011 would be a "small super-election year." "State elections, municipal elections -- Germans will finally get a chance to punish those at the top," Voigt said, looking straight into the camera. "We have a chance.

If you retweeted someone, or has been retweeted, it is possible that your username is one of these tinny points (or maybe a bigger one?). To collect the network data, I used the Gephi Graph Streaming plugin, connected it to a Python web server I made myself. This web server works like a bridge, it connects to the Twitter Streaming API using the statuses/filter service and converts the users and retweets to nodes and edges in a network format that can be read by the Gephi Graph Streaming plugin. Nodes are twitter users, and links appear between the nodes A and B when B retweeted a message of A containing the hashtag #jan25.

Pono Player hands-on: believe the hype It's a true testament to the high-quality audio delivery of the Pono Player that we're able to suggest that it's all that it's cut out to be at a tech convention. We're at Showstoppers during CES 2015 and it's loud - not deafeningly loud, but loud enough that it's not an optimal environment for listening to tunes. This device delivers sound that's next-level. With a pair of Sennheiser Momentum headphones plugged in, this music player brings a depth to music we simply did not expect. Pono Player is a very strange shape - it's more of a long triangular lump than it is a standard "iPod-like" music player.
