Different question of the day:

Who uses a Raspberry Pi for anything here? I'm smart with no time on my hands and I'm wondering how hard this would be to turn into a retro-emulation console.

If you have no time on your hands, why are you building a retro emulation console? When will you have time to use it?

It's starter gaming for the kids.

Well, you've convinced me to try to get it up and running again (and I ordered a few cheap USB controllers so avoid the Bluetooth pains).

Going with the standard Retropie setup with Emulation Station. If I can find the appropriate place, I'll try to update. Or I may just come back here leave posts no one will read.

The land in Minecraft is flat, Minecraft simulates the Earth, ergo the Earth is flat.

It's not too difficult. I set one up a few years back using Emulation Station (even made it to disc 2 on FF7 before I burned myself out). It has since crapped out on me but I'm pretty sure it's just a matter of re-imaging the micro SD card. There were some decent step-by-steps out there back then, so I'm sure there are even better options now.

It was a bit tricky getting my PS3 controllers to sync via Bluetooth, but there are also cheap USB-based controllers that might be worth it (once I had a problem syncing a controller to the Pi, and I wasn't able to re-sync it with my PS3...effectively ruining a perfectly good PS3 controller).

Given Pearson's recent performance if they are getting rid of textbooks, it might be time to invest in textbook printing companies...  



Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.

The kid who sits in front and asks questions with one minute left in class.

If you raise your hand at 11:59 a.m. and say the words, “Going back to something you said earlier,” be prepared for everyone in the room to hate you.


You think that's bad, try the same situation at work in a large room with 40 or more people and an "important" speaker, and there's oodles of assholery trying to get some face time as an important, thoughtful question asker.

Okay, that Onion article was pretty spot on,
The Dude Who Pulls Out His Acoustic Guitar At Every Party.
Hahahaha!

Man, that guy really did a great job with This is a Man's World. Always been one of my fave JB songs.

Hey Ant, do ant wars make you sad?
