Experilous: Procedural Planet Generation
For the past two and a half weeks, I’ve been working on a procedural planet generator. This weekend I finally polished it up enough to talk myself into putting it online. You can check it out here. (It’s heavy on the JavaScript, so I recommend Chrome. Firefox and IE are slower, but manage. I haven’t tried any other browser yet. Also, I’ve never yet delved into supporting touch controls, so it’s pretty much keyboard only. Sorry mobile users.)

A lot of different steps go into generating the planet, utilizing a variety of algorithms and techniques. They’re not perfect, and some of them are in fact quite finicky, requiring a lot of cautious tweaking of parameters and behaviors. Some of them are bad enough to make me cringe. But they work. At least well enough to make some pretty pictures, and some planets with enough variety that they might be a half decent foundation for some strategy mechanics. So in case anyone might be able to glean some useful ideas from my work, allow me to delve into some of the details (and include tons of colorful pictures along the way).

R2D2 Budgie - YouTube
Favorited a video on YouTube! We taught Bluey the budgie how to do R2-D2 and now he drives us crazy! He has two other budgies in his cage, and I think he's driving them crazy too! Bluey was our first budgie and our seven-year old daughter hand-raised him. He has always been a curious bird, he was really intrigued by our voices and the cockatoos we have in our garden - he even copied the noise the crested pigeons make when they take off. We played R2D2 sounds off Youtube to him four or five times and a few days later our daughter came running in saying he was doing R2D2. We were blown away that he picked it up so quickly! The other budgies in his cage started copying him but could only manage a few seconds at a time. Bluey also loves making lazer sounds, the R2D2 scream sound, kissing sounds, and he whispers English jibberish we can only make out a few words.

Building a CustoMac: Buyer's Guide October 2014
The CustoMac Mini "Deluxe" is a no-compromise build featuring a Z97 mini-ITX motherboard and a quad-core Haswell CPU. The BitFenix Phenom is a unique way of thinking about a mini-ITX system, as it's not exactly small. It's about the size of a mATX case, making room for multiple hard drives, and a full sized graphics card. The Z97 motherboard is also capable of overclocking if you use a "K" CPU, and there is even room for a water cooler for the CPU. Please note that the motherboard's Intel mini-PCIe card includes both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth but only the bluetooth features are available under OS X. If you don't use the PCIe slot, we recommend the TP-Link PCIe card below for native Wi-Fi support. If you’re interested in replacing the mini-PCIe card, check out this list of card suggestions.

Top 9 Struggles New Managers Face But You Don’t Have To
Shared article from Feedly via The Next Web
Elli Bishop is the community manager for BusinessBee, a place for business owners and executives to discover and compare various business service providers. This article originally appeared on the 15Five blog. Do you remember when you were first hired as a manager or were promoted from within? Perhaps you founded your first company and had to lead and support a staff for the first time. Just thinking back to those days might make some queasy. Transitioning to a management role can be a bumpy ride, and many new managers struggle with the same issues — miscommunication, delegating vs doing, and reporting up...

Cold Brew Your Own Cheaper and Better Tasting Coffee Liqueur
Shared article from Feedly via Lifehacker

Infuse liquor with coffee and you'll get a strong coffee brew with a big kick. Instead of brewing the coffee hot and combining it with the alcohol, try a lazier cold brew method for a smoother, sweeter coffee liqueur.

Depending on the alcohol and coffee you use, you could also save money on your homemade coffee liqueur—and you'll also be able to control the quantity and quality of the brew. WonderHowTo steeped half a cup of coffee in two cups of ice-cold vodka overnight and afterwards added vanilla and sugar for a Kahlua-like drink (although, yes, Kahlua is typically a rum-based drink). They also used Scotch whiskey as the coffee steeping liquid.

The results? Pretty damn good. Both the coffee-and-vodka and coffee-and-Scotch brews were smooth with no hint of acidity. Best of all, both tasted like coffee—real honest-to-goodness coffee, but with a massive, for-adults-only kick.

And because the steeping process was so long, I could taste different notes of fruits, nuts, and spice in the coffee, all of which were amped up by the alcohol. Once I added agave and vanilla to the vodka version, I proclaimed it the best homemade Kahlua I'd ever produced.

Cold brewing coffee might be the better method to go with this, because it cuts the acidity of the coffee.

Check out WonderHowTo's article for more details and tips.

Watch 2001: A Space Odyssey As a 60-Second Cartoon
Shared article from Feedly via Gizmodo

2001: A Space Odyssey earns the term "epic" more than almost any other movie. The two-hour-and-forty-one-minute cinema classic is an absolute must-watch. But if you don't have that kind of time, Speedrun just very loosely condensed the plot down to a mere 60 seconds.

An RV Converted into a Spaceship Simulator
Shared article from Feedly via Hackaday

Hackerspaces always breed innovative projects. The outlandish ideas that come out of these areas typically push the boundaries of what is possible. This giant spaceship simulator is no exception, which is normally housed at the London Hackspace.

It was created by a team of DIY hackers that wanted an immersive experience that didn’t involve virtual reality goggles. Instead, they chose more of a holodeck-type game that literally would shake the people inside the sci-fi styled caravan as they traveled through virtual space fighting aliens along the way.
