    I mean that those actual glasses probably dont exist, or if they do, I bet they do not work as seemlessly/well as the clip.

    For anyone interested in the copters they are pretty easy to build from parts yourself with the added bonus of if it breaks you know exactly how to fix it.

    just finished the first stage of building my own tricopter. Got it hovering inside yesterday, its pretty stable but managed to wander into the kitchen and get taken out by the fridge. Should be able to get its first outside flight tomorrow then after learning how to fly it the next stage is GoPro and video transmitter

    There's already quite a few options around along those lines, most companies just buy cheap Chinese boxes and rebrand them. The only one I'd really touch is an AC Ryan Veolo:

    I am using a Raspberry Pi with Raspbian as the OS, and stream media from my server via Samba, and have hdmi out... and also can do some basic web browsing. All very secure too.

    Thanks to research done by Google we run our server room at an ambient temperature of 28-29 degrees Celsius.

    19-24 is about right. The only reason you'd run higher would be to reduce the energy consumption of your air conditioning, and IIRC that's one of the main reasons why Google suggested people move toward raising the temperature. We run our Christchurch datacentre at 21 (and 35% humidity), alarming at 24. Last week I worked at a client datacentre that used containment pods like this:



    ... was pretty interesting, but quite awkward since we were working on one side of the pod whilst another group of guys were working on the opposite. They were set at 22-23.

    We chose to run at a higher temperature to cut our cooling costs by nearly $1000 a month. We have been running at a 28-29 for 6 months now and haven't had any failures (we run IBM, Cisco and D-Link gear).

    From memory Googles research showed that when they raised the temperature they didn't notice a discernible increase in hardware failure.

    Re: NZHondas F%@#ing Sweet Gadget Thread

    Well if one of you guys could let our datacentre guys know that'd be grand, thanks. I spent 30 hours straight in the machine room at one of ours early last year (fml) and I swear it was about 16 degrees in there.

    [edit] Appears we're running around 23 degrees now. Much nicer. [/edit]

    bUMP!

    This is the best thread I could think of for this. Thoughts on this - San Francisco 49ers new stadium: Levi’s Stadium Is the Most High-Tech Sports Venue Yet - TIME

    It sounds mighty impressive, though IMO kinda ridiculous, but also probably quite well suited for the game that is NFL.
