Frac - 3D Tetris

A random conversation reminded me of a computer game I played in the early 90's: Frac (3D Tetris). I fired up the browser version and I was surprised that my fingers remembered how to manipulate the pieces. Good times.

Funny Machine Learning Outcomes

A great list...
Including such instance classics:
"In an artificial life simulation where survival required energy but giving birth had no energy cost, one species evolved a sedentary lifestyle that consisted mostly of mating in order to produce new children which could be eaten (or used as mates to produce more edible children)."
"A  robotic arm trained to slide a block to a target position on a table achieves the goal by moving the table itself."

Lord British is a robot!

Lifehacker does a "How I Work" series and asks people about their hacks, battle stations, tools, etc. They recently interviewed Richard Garriott aka Lord British. I had not thought about Ultima in a long time. And it was interesting to read about his use of a tele-presence robot.

Ham Licenses

It's been a year since I posted an update on the Ham licenses chart.

Up: Extra, General, Tech, and Total
This is a high water mark for all three classes and overall licenses. Total was 748,136 at the end of 2017.

Down: Advanced and Novice
Advanced and Novice will only go down since no new licenses are being issued for these classes.
