Make PCBs at home with magazine paper and your laser printer
this is brilliant. perfect photo-etching, at high speed. the author claims to be able to fab a PCB in an hour, which is pretty awesome. nice use of surface mounting to avoid spending ages drilling holes, too.

Making things in a post-industrial society | Britain's lonely high-flier | The Economist
there are so many amazing quotes in here:

"their big engines, of almost six tonnes, are worth their weight in silver—and that the average car is worth its weight in hamburger"

"Each blade is grown from a single crystal of alloy for strength and then coated with tough ceramics."

The Devel!: git svn rebase - could not detach HEAD
just got this error - for exactly the same cause. if a file appears in a subversion commit that you already have in your git working directory, git-svn rebase will fail. note: "git checkout git-svn" was what I needed to get the human-readable error though, not "git checkout refs/remotes/trunk".

Early Retirement: Where to Live?
so true; being a property owner is boring! "If you can rent anything decent, try to avoid buying property. Think about the most interesting people you know. Chances are, most of them are renters. People who rent talk about the books that they've read, the trips that they've taken, the skills that they are learning, the friends whose company they are enjoying. Property owners complain about the local politicians, the high rate of property tax, the difficulty of finding competent tradespeople, the high value of their own (very likely crummy) house or condo, and what kinds of furniture and kitchen appliances they are contemplating buying. Property owners are boring. The most boring parts of a property owner's personality are those which relate to his or her ownership of real estate. "

Overcoming Bias: Lawful Creativity
Eliezer Yudkowsky is amazing. I almost filed his blog as "tl;dr" due to the high posting frequency, but every other post is a philosophical *mindbomb*. Highly recommended is his "AI box experiment" (especially for Terminator fans).
