Foolish Pekopons Edition
- Gawr Gura refers to her membership list as membershrimps. Does Pekora refer to her followers as pekopons?
On the downside her voice is not exactly, um, melodic. On the upside she's a lunatic.
- The Seeed Grove Beginners Kit contains everything you need to get started with Arduino. (Tom's Hardware)
An Arduino Uno with (counts) seventeen headers, plus six I/O devices including a 1" OLED display.
The article doesn't mention pricing but it's $19.90 on the Seeed store which seems very reasonable for what you get.
That board might look fragile and easy to break, but that's because it is. It's designed so that when you're ready for a real project you can snap off the individual little boards to make them, um, individual little boards.
- Telepath is a new social network designed by people who think 1984 is a cookbook. (Tech Crunch)
In closed beta they have two full time thought police already.
- JuliaMono is a monospaced font for scientific computing. (JuliaMono)
Most notably, it has over ten thousand Unicode characters. Perfect for implementing your next Roguelike.
Wonder if it has PETSCII.
Update: Probably. Looks like all the PETSCII characters have a Unicode equivalent. (Style64)
- The world's smallest office suite. (Serge)
Four lines of code. And a current web browser.
- Rocketmail! (Vice)
The Pentagon is contracting SpaceX to develop a platform capable of delivering cargoes anywhere in the world within an hour.
Finally we're getting the 21st century we deserve.
- A bot posted the best answers on Reddit for a week. (KMeme)
People suspected it right away, though it did post some cool stuff before unmasking the Illuminati and having its plug pulled.
Yui, Get the Flammenwerfer Video of the Day
Yelp announced on Thursday it is auditioning for class-action lawsuits. Why it is doing this, no-one was entirely clear, but alcohol was probably involved.
Or getting started on a Dwarf Fortress clone.

Vertical alignment of Julia Mono isn't terribly consistent (slash and backslash aren't even the same), although it's mostly subtle; the width difference between tilde and hyphen is surprisingly large, though. I give it a C+; points off for some inconsistent character weights and defaulting to a dotted zero. :-)

I'm looking for a good OpenType font to use to create the bitmap fonts for my emulator, and I want one that's rich in symbols and has full support for European languages (including Greek and Cyrillic).
I just looked at Iosveka and that's quite good, but is missing some symbols I want. Of course, I could use it for text and take the missing symbols from JuliaMono.
