"Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive. Then go and do that, because what the world needs is people who are alive." This is one of the most profound quotes I've ever read.  I'd love to know who the author is. Any ideas?

Daylight Savings Time

Don't forget everyone, daylight savings time starts tonight so be sure to "Spring Back" your clocks 1 hour at 2am tonight. And additionally because last year was a leap year when your clock reaches 2am for a second time, spring back an additional hour. If you live in the southern hemisphere the directions should be reversed ie. spring back 2 hours at 1 am. Europeons, please substitute 100 minutes for one hour to account for the metric conversion.

It said "cool wash"!

Who'd a thunk it?Climate change is making sheep shrink!Cold weather tends to select for larger-bodied mammals - polar bears, mammoths, walruses etc. Larger, stringer individuals are more likely to survive long enough to reproduce. The same is true for wild sheep.A new report in Science shows that Scotland's warming climate has allowed smaller-bodied, shorter-legged sheep to survive - a 5% change in only 22 years.The trend seems to be continuing, "But it's too early to say if, in 100 years, we will have chihuahuas herding pocket-sized sheep."

How to read an arduino shied schematic to replicate said shield? Answered

One of my many projects I have going requires an arduino and wave shield. I have a wave shield from adafruit already, along with an uno, and I have already done what I wanted.  However, price is an issue. I would like to make a board that has both a bare-bone arduino and a wave shield. Adafruit has the schematic for the wave shied, but I have a very limited understanding of what it is I'm looking at. I understand (or think so at least) that the MOSI would go to pin 11 on the arduino (using this). Goes without saying that I would also take all other pins with matching names and pair them up, Thanks in advance!

Girfriend says she wants to keep her options open?

We have been dating over one month and I see here twice a week. . Tuesday after she cooked me dinner and while she was rubbing my back and watching tv, she said there is something I want to get out in the open. She said she wants to keep her options open. I said did I do something to offend you? She said no. She said she has a lot of fun with me and the sex is fantastic. She said I didn't freak her out in the bedroom or anything. Some nights we do it twice and then in the morning. Last week she gave me a pair of her panties she had just wore. Before she droped the bomb, we were making out and getting worked up , then she said she just started her period. When we first dated she was towards the end of her period and we had sex. Then she said she is cramping. It probably has been about a month since her last one. We also talked about what was going on this weekend. She said she has plans friday with a girlfriend and they are going to check out some art. I asked for sat and she said yes. I asked her if there is sombody else and she said no. She went to her counselor the night she threw out the options statemant. Could the counselor have influenced her? I took her some concerts tickets that I got for free. When I left she said I know I really pulled the blanket out from under you so you might want to take the tickets. This announcement was such a shock to me. She told me she is co-dependent and last weekend she was able to spend fri home alone. She got divorced last year after ten years and says she talks to him twice a week. He was an alchoholic. Then she dated a guy for about a year then me. Between that guy and me was two weeks. She acutually pursued me. She found out my email from one of our friends. I'm thinking if she came after me, she was single. She keeps telling me it's nothing I did. She also mentioned that I'm Liberal or conservative or something like that. We never talk about politics. Is she wanting somebody who is more political? She called me a few days ago to see if we were still on for sat. She said she is calling because she thought I was mad at her. I said I wasn't. I feel like its going to a little awkward tonight. I'm afraid to have a talk with her when we get together tonight. What should I do? I don't want to be her 2nd option.

I am still curious....and wanting to know the best methods of acquisition of said kits...

I am curious, not so much for my own self (after all, I am nearing my mid fifties) but because a youngster that I am mentoring likes this kind of thing, is there any way to get a decent "collection" of parts together without spending half a fortune? She prefers robotics, dinosaurs, and human anatomy to other subjects, but loves to build just about anything.  And since erector sets and lego mindstorms sets (she's a bit advanced for an 8 year old) are so expensive, and she does have a small K'nex set started, I figured we could "build" on that one, if it can be done at a reasonable price.   Sadly for me, "reasonable" is much less than the average idea of reasonable. When I was younger, I got an erector set that could build literally hundreds of different "contraptions" for about $20-$30 and now I see on line a "discounted" "contraptions" set that can be used to build 6 different things for about the same price.....not really comparable in any way.  Tinkertoys are not really that "useful" for "creating" things as far as I could see (had those as a child also and the one I am helping doesn't care for them either). She also has a set of lincoln logs, but bores of them quickly as her imagination has not yet had a chance to "kick in" :-) I know I asked a similar question recently (in the general forums) that was a bit more broader in perspective, so I thought I would narrow it down and get some input from you all. Thank you in advance !

No one else was hurt. The shooting began near a fountain in front of the UT Tower — the site of one of the nation's deadliest shooting rampages more than four decades ago, when a gunman ascended the clock tower and fired down on dozens of people. Within hours of Tuesday's gunfire, the school issued an all-clear notice, but the university remained closed, and the area around the library was still considered a crime scene. "Our campus is safe," school President Bill Powers said. Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo expected the school to be "completely open and back to normal" by Wednesday morning. Authorities identified the gunman as 19-year-old Colton Tooley, a sophomore math major. His parents did not immediately respond to a message left by The Associated Press. The 50,000-student university had been on lockdown while officers with bomb-sniffing dogs carried out a building-by-building manhunt. After the gunfire, authorities searched for a possible second shooter, but they eventually concluded the gunman acted alone. Confusion about the number of suspects arose because shots were fired in multiple locations, and officers received varying descriptions from witnesses, campus police Chief Robert Dahlstrom said. Before reaching the library, the gunman apparently walked for several blocks wearing a mask and dark clothing and carrying an automatic weapon, witnesses said. Construction worker Ruben Cordoba said he was installing a fence on the roof of a three-story building near the library when he looked down and made eye contact with the suspect. "I saw in his eyes he didn't care," Cordoba said. The gunman continued down the street, firing three shots toward a campus church, then changed direction and fired three more times into the air, Cordoba said. A garbage truck driver leaped out of his vehicle and ran away, as did a woman carrying two babies, the construction worker said. "I'm not scared, but I was scared for the people around me," Cordoba said. Randall Wilhite, an adjunct law professor, said he was driving to class when he saw "students start scrambling behind wastebaskets, trees and monuments," and then a young man carrying an assault rifle sprinting along the street. "He was running right in front of me ... and he shot what I thought were three more shots ... not at me. In my direction, but not at me," Wilhite said. The professor said the gunman had the opportunity to shoot several people, but he did not. Police said it was unclear whether the gunman was targeting anyone with the AK-47. Oscar Trevino, whose daughter works on campus, said she told him she was walking to work near the library when she heard two shots behind her. She started to run and fell down. She said she later heard another shot. "She's freaking out. I'm trying to calm her down. I've just been telling her I love her and relax, everything's fine," Trevino said. Acevedo said officers were able to track the gunman's movements with the help of students who "kept pointing in the right direction." The police chief said he believes the gunman ran into the library as officers closed in on him, then shot himself in the head on the sixth floor. Police did not fire any shots, Acevedo said. Powers credited the school's crisis-management plan and social networking for quickly warning students, faculty and staff. The university's text messaging system reaches more than 43,000 people, he said. Laura Leskoven, a graduate student from Waco, said she was in a media management class when she received a text message from the university saying there was an armed person near the library. For the next 3 1/2 hours, Leskoven and about 30 of her classmates sat in a locked conference room trying to keep tab on events through Twitter, blogs and text messages. "We were kind of shocked," Leskoven said. "Our professor said, 'Well, we need to get upstairs' because we were on the first floor of the building." Student Joshua Barajas said he usually is in the library in the mornings but was delayed Tuesday when he made a rare stop for coffee. "These little mundane decisions could save your life. If I hadn't stopped for coffee — and I never stop for coffee because it's $4 — I could have been in that building," Barajas said. "It's creepy. I don't even want to think about it." On Aug. 1, 1966, Charles Whitman went to the 28th floor observation deck at the UT clock tower in the middle of campus and began shooting at people below. He killed 16 people and wounded nearly three dozen before police killed him about 90 minutes after the siege began. ___ Associated Press writers April Castro and Jim Vertuno in Austin, Ramit Plushnick-Masti in Houston, and Diana Heidgerd in Dallas contributed to this report.
