This week, the planets are in alignement, a free logo maker, a tribute to David Bowie, and a tire slashing monk. The list is after the break

Lumpy’s Links for 2015.12.27

Lumpy’s Links for 2015.12.27

I hope you all had a great holiday. I will be rather sparse between now and the first of the year. Enjoy the last link list of 2015!

Here they are:

  • Ludicrous – This week’s was a no-brainer. A shoplifer is thwarted by exploding cookie dough.
  • Useful – I found this post abouthow to clean a computer keyboard. I think most of us could benefit from this.
  • Music – Want to lay down some beats? Check out the The HTML-909 Rhythm Composer! (Kudos to Never Enough Notes for sharing it on Facebook.)
  • Photo – You will likely need to zoom in a bit to see it but check out this red sprite captured by NASA from the ISS.
  • Yours (Something from the web’s social networks) – This week I went with a tweet from @ScienceChannel, they call it the doorway to Hell which has currently been open for 40 years!
  • Science – Light is the fastest thing in the universe. It travels about 100 times faster than electricity and can circle the globe in 0.1 seconds. I would be wonderful if electronics could use light. Scientist have developed a CMOS chip that can process both light and electricity.

The New York Times Has an Interactive Map of Saturn’s Moons

I find space exploration fascinating.  I came across this via a post at Gizmodo.  The video is a great way to spend about ten minutes learning about Saturn and some of it’s moons.

Much Happening in Space this Christmas

An Asteroid and a Full Moon

full moon photoMost of my readers are aware that I love space exploration and astronomy.  This year’s Christmas is going to be rather “spacey”.

First off, on Christmas Eve, an asteroid will pass rather close to Earth.  Fear not, however, scientists are assuring us that the space rock will not cause earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

And Christmas Night, the sky will have a full moon.  The last time there was a full moon on Christmas was in 1977.

Lumpy’s Links for 2015.12.08

Yup, I am late again. Sorry, but the non-cyber world has me way too busy. It will slow down soon though.

Nonetheless, here they are:

  • Ludicrous – Check out the latest adventure of Bud Weisser
  • Useful – I was actually having a hard time with this one this week. Until I went to my To Do list. Check out Workflowy
  • Music – I knew it was going to be the one the instant I saw it. The Libertarian version of Star Wars. Watch it after the break below.
  • Photo – While this one is a bit dated, it is still worth a post.  Check out this pulse from a black hole.
  • Yours (Something tweeted to me or emailed)- I hit on this one in #blaster channel on the Geekshed IRC Network, the top animals of 2015.
  • Science – This week my pick is a nifty Anaptar Calendar. This calendar lets you explore the solar system all 366 days of 2016.
