no one could figure out Mbone or 6bone so maybe the progression:

 

Mbone ->6Bone->Stupidbone

Miles and I are on a mission to bring back Gopher.

Ig, any interest? Is there going to be a UCG Gopher site? :)

BTW : The advantage of Gopher - Imagine the bandwidth savings!! :)

I suppose I could write a "GopherCit" client. :)

Now that I think about it, Gopher protocol would have been the perfect way to deploy low-bandwidth, small-screen applications to mobile phones.

This is why I'm pushing for LoGophOOx -

1. Part LOGO
2. Part Gopher
3. Part Unix
... in an object-oriented fashion.

This is pretty cool:

Someone created a 'secret knock' door mechanism to unlock a door when it hears the secret knock.

Now that's some geek action there.

Perfect for clubs.. or just someone who forgets their keys a lot.

The only bad thing is if your neighbors hear that without you knowing. But how would they know that you have the knock detector?

Definately someting to look into.

I know they did that with port knocking, I guess somebody actually built the real thing.
I wonder which came first...

And now for the "vintage technology moment of the day."

http://matrixsynth.blogspot.com/2009/03/1979-remco-soundfx-machine-9v-toy.html

The classic (1979) Remco "Sound FX Machine."

I had one of these. We must have spent hundreds of hours screwing around with this thing. I added a line-out jack to mine so I wouldn't have to be limited to the two inch speaker.

It was based on the Texas Instruments SN76477 chip. A few years later I bought one of those chips (back when Radio Shack was still useful for that kind of thing) and built a better quality unit. That was fun.

Okay, foiled by Palm again.
Picked up a bluetooth headset. $20 at target.
Pairs up OK, I can use it for phone calls, but that's not why i bought
it.
Can't fucking listen to music through it. That's all I want to do.

Anyone know of any tricks (preferably free) to get this to work? I've
tried a utility called "Freedom" that supposedly lets you do this, but
that only switched between speaker/handset/wired headset.

A little Googling turns up a lot of hits for something called "Softick Audio Gateway" which appears to do what you want.

seems as if the US software patent might find a sudden end?

in re Bilski? What were their findings?

as far as I got heise here, they are starting to argue about how thoughts or "solutions" can be patenteable (like a modus operandi how to best do speed-dating) which obviously is the nature of most software patents.
