MrTrick Zelda: Ocarina of Time (585 comments)

Plays well enough with an Xbox360 controller. (In fact, they are fantastic for most console emulation) Don't even bother trying to play N64 games with a Playstation controller, blecch.

Study Claims Cellphones Implicated In Bee Loss

MrTrick Re:Wait, what? - The next step (542 comments)

The next step is to run more tests with more hives, and more test groups (with - as suggested elsewhere in the discussion - graduated exposure levels)
Not to run around like a headless chook claiming the preliminary test actually means anything.

1. Do limited unscientific test.
2. Profit!
3. ???

MrTrick Re:Silly question - Couchdb (45 comments)

Try couchdb if you want to select ranges.

Its keys are stored in a heap, so selecting ranges of values is a core use case.
The view system also uses the same mechanism, so by having a cached view you can emit any key you like per record, and grab individual or ranges of values.

Nifty. :-)

Low-Cost Board Runs Linux, Google Apps

MrTrick "dev board" ? (152 comments)

This is just a motherboard, with a C7 processor already attached to it. No memory, no non-volatile storage...

According to TFA, it "comes with gOS", but gOS doesn't sit anywhere on this 'dev board', it has to be installed onto a regular hard drive just like a normal computer.

Bad article. It's not a dev board, it's an entirely normal mobo. The ONLY thing about it that is even remotely special is that there are linux drivers for all its components.

If it were a dev board I'd want at least some attached flash storage, and some interesting pin headers.
