There are several tutorials on youtube on how to do overtone (also called throat) singing. She doesn't cover it, because probably there's enough of it already.

"Throat singing" involves operating the vocal cords while inhaling. This lady, Anna-Maria Hefele, at least, is NOT doing that.

Yet another reason not to use biometrics to unlock devices.

Sorry, this is off-topic but I haven't found the proper place...

"I'm sorry, your QUESTION must be in the form of A QUESTION! -- What husbands would say if they only had the guts #31"

My wife simply asks the WRONG question: "Do you want to (whatever chore or other disagreeable thing)". My reply: No, I don't WANT to (whatever), but if you ask me nicely, I will"

I've been saying this for 22 years now. That qualifies me as insane, correct?

A fucking C.

Humans have too many privacy rights as it is.

Who said humans have ANY privacy rights. AfC The only privacy rights humans have are the ones we barely give lip service to.

Groups like ISIS happen because we're more concerned about doing all of our daily tasks in secret rather than being safe.

Groups like ISIS, and Governments in general, happen because of the inate human desire to be able to tell fellow human beings what to do, and how to think, and how to act. And make it stick. AfC

5.- G.O.D.

"Greenbacks On Demand" - I tried to find a good "G" word for this. Better than "Green Stuff" at least. That could have gotten weirdly ugly!

"Gold On Demand" - Good. The way things probably should be. But, in this context (humorous), seems kind of out-of-place.

"Gnote on Demand" - What we probably will end up with, sigh. Fuck lot better than "Inote", IMHO.

Normally we use only one in a project but a thought came to me: what if I take a couple of them and put those in a cluster? I started soldering and the result is 4 Arduinos connected to each other via an I2C bus and all directed by a Raspberry Pi. Together these 4 Arduinos calculate the Mandelbrot fractal, directed by the Raspberry Pi (it divides/schedules the work between the Arduinos). On my website you'll find a demonstration, schematics and all source code. In theory a cluster of at least 120 Arduinos could be setup. Electrical power is the limit!"
