Submission + - What to do with leftover CO2 Cartridges? Shoot them!

MikeDataLink writes: The Geek Pub has a really neat contraption for what to do with all of those leftover CO2 Cartridges after spending the after noon in your backyard plinking with your BB gun!

Turn them into ammo and blow holes through plywood and cinder blocks! All you need is some PVC pipe and an air compressor. Its a great way to have some fun and recycle some would be trash into something useful!

Submission + - This is the arcade you've been waiting to build

MikeDataLink writes: The Geek Pub's most recent project might be the one you've been waiting to build. It's bartop version of the arcade cabinet built last summer. This version is small and portable, which should mean you can find room for it anywhere in your home and move it out of the way when not needed. It's based on RetroPie, so all you need is a $35 Raspberry Pi 3 to run it.

Submission + - Use Siri to control anything!

MikeDataLink writes: The Geek Pub has a new video up showing off the open-source application HomeBridge which basically allows Siri to control any device by being a "bridge" between HomeKit and those devices. Control Nest, MyQ, HomeSeer, or just about anything else!

Submission + - Site that exposed scam is being attacked

MikeDataLink writes: The Geek Pub posted an article about the woodprix scam, a scam where the scammers have stolen plans from numerous woodworking websites and magazines and are selling them on their site.

Now the scammers are attacking The Geek Pub site with spambots, and posting disinformation all over the web attempting to extort the site owner to delete the information about the scam (in exchange for deleting the derogatory posts on other sites).

Have you ever been attacked by scammers for exposing them? How did you fight back?
