Talend.com offers Talend Open Studio - a great free software product for flow-based visual programming, based on Eclipse.
I used it for projects for 5 years and was amazed, how easy to make complex data transformation by dragging and dropping components and links.
A result is a java (or Perl) program, which can run standalone.
The program is a visual data flow, easy to modify and understand even for non-programmers.
I really appreciate Talend team effort and recommend this product for all, who need data transformations.

Okay.

I needed to go to the hospital, but the car wouldn't drive because it said I had a broken brake light
I missed my flight and lost my job, because the broken brake light detector was faulty
My car drove itself to the repair shop, and got a ticket for a broken brake light on the way
My car drove itself to the repair shop while I was indoors, and I came out to drive to the hospital and had no car

And, if you overrided that (by using manual handle logged by special insurance sealed registrator) and then on your way
near red light your car would have been rear-ended by a heavy truck, leaving you paraplegic, would you be happier?

Militarizing Your Backyard With Python and AI 112

mikejuk writes "Kurt Grandis took some cutting edge and open source AI tools, Python, an Arduino and a SuperSoaker and built the (almost) perfect squirrel hosing machine. The project involved Open Computer Vision (OpenCV), an a SVM learning procedure that he trained to tell the difference between a squirrel and a non-squirrel. After 'perfecting' the classifier the hardware came next — a SuperSoaker Mark I was used as the 'water cannon.' A pair of servos were used to aim the gun and a third to pull the trigger."

How To Sneak In To a Security Conference 189

jfruh writes "You'd think that, of all events, security conferences would have tight security. But one anonymous human pen tester managed to sneak into the RSA conference without credentials, using tried and true techniques like waving a badge from another conference at security guards and slipping in through exits."

To understand a program you must become both the machine and the program.
