Indiscriminate License Plate Scanning

Indiscriminate License Plate Scanning

Earlier today I was doing some work just outside our office door in the parking lot. This scruffy-looking white econobox with peeling paint on its bumpers drove by, with four of these boxes (which my coworkers and I quickly deduced to be licence plate scanners) mounted to its trunk deck, pointing out to the rows of cars along either side. It cruised in and out of the lanes of the parking lot...

Roleplaying Game

Roleplaying Game

After the kobolds have been slain, an eerie quiet falls on the entire dungeon. Rogue searches for traps and finds a large door that opens upwards. Paladin lifts the door, and behind it sits a 1991 Miata, with worn suspension but otherwise mechanically sound. Meanwhile, Wizard notices a hidden chest in a dark corner, and Paladin forces it open with his longsword. Inside is five thousand...

Dream Report: Go Electric Edition

Dream Report: Go Electric Edition

Last night I dreamed I was standing outside a car dealer, counseling all the people going inside to avoid anything with an internal combustion engine, since they were going to be obsolete in 3 years. I had this 3-ring binder with all kinds of charts and graphs showing the efficiency and cost of electric energy storage and motors, and the projected maintenance costs vs. number of moving parts,...

PSA: Oculus Rift S buyers may be selling their old Rifts now

PSA: Oculus Rift S buyers may be selling their old Rifts now

An “early adopter” friend of mine just got a new Rift S, and he let me borrow his Rift to see if I’m interested because he wants to sell it.

Last night I got the Rift set up with Project Cars and my Logitech G27 wheel & shifter, and it was flippin’ amazing. The added situational awareness and immersive feel is inestimable.

Even though the new price is a little steep at $400, it’s a steal at...

Saw my first Hellcat in the wild this morning

Saw my first Hellcat in the wild this morning

In "Sublime Green Pearl Coat" like this image from Dodge's web configurator. Interesting that there are no special graphics, war paint, hockey stick bars, strobe stripes, etc. even available as options for the Hellcat. It is what it is.

Approaching it from the side as it waited to turn from a parking lot into the street I was driving on, I didn't even think, "Hellcat," only, "bright green...
