  • Maker's 46 finally hits town.

    12/18/2014 8:48:52 AM PST · by jstaff · 72 replies
    Maker's 46 bourbon, from the Maker's Mark people, finally hit the local market. Not earth shaking news, I know, but if anyone is a fan of good bourbon this has to be on the list. It's 94 proof but sips like half that, neat, and at room temperature. And, no, I don't have any financial interest, just wanted to share some good news with my buds.

    The Daily Mail ^ | 12/17/2014 | Jay Narain
    A teenager who was bullied by online trolls posted a heartbreaking video on YouTube before killing himself, an inquest heard. Adam Smith, 19, who had learning difficulties, was bombarded with spiteful remarks and accused of plagiarism over a short story he put on a website. In response to the vicious bullying, he posted a video on YouTube entitled ‘I’m sorry’ where he apologised for any misunderstanding. But he was lambasted again by cruel users, who mocked him saying his speech problems were so bad it made them laugh. Days later he was seen crying as he walked to a railway...

    Heads up: there are fake Nikon D800E DSLRs floating around. That’s according to Nikon Europe, which posted a notice “regarding fraudulent Nikon D800E digital SLR.” Apparently some unscrupulous folk are taking the D800, replacing its outer shell with the D800E cover, and selling the fake cameras through online auction sites (presumably eBay).

    Cult of Mac ^ | December 11, 2014 | Luke Dormehl
    The world’s largest brick? Photo: Trucktrend In addition to Apple devices, noted security expert and The Mac Hacker’s Handbook co-author Charlie Miller has carried out some fascinating (and potentially terrifying) research into hacking vehicles. Last year, alongside fellow hacker Chris Valasek, Miller demonstrated that it is possible to hijack the steering and brakes of a Ford Escape and Toyota Prius using only a laptop connected to the car. Having done that, he has now moved onto exploring vulnerabilities in other vehicles — including his new 2014 Cherokee jeep. All that research comes at a high price, however, since Miller recently...

I've got a ? for the Freepers who like to cook and entertain: What do you take to an office party, where the only warm-up options are microwave and sterno-steam-tray? My crew favors my chicken and dumplings, which work out very well warmed up in a crock pot. But I've done it for years, and it's a little labor-intensive for me this year. I want to do something different, and my other best dishes are 'crusty' things - chicken pot...

    Summary: Yes, you still can trick Microsoft into giving you security updates for Windows XP. No, it's not a good idea. You are not protected. Perhaps the most popular story I've written for ZDNet was the one explaining how you can hack the registry in Windows XP and trick Windows Update into continuing to send you security updates. The basis of it is that Microsoft has an embedded variant of Windows XP and support doesn't end on that until April 2016. The hack makes XP look like the embedded version. I have maintained a Hyper-V VM on a Windows 8.1...

    The National Rifle Association is promising supporters it will carry on the fight against Initiative 594, using its “philosophically supportive majority” in the Washington Legislature when it convenes in January. “We are already discussing legislative remedies to the most onerous provisions,” the NRA said in a letter to supporters. The Gun Lobby’s big gun defends the effort it made in opposing I-594, which requires criminal background checks for those purchasing firearms at gun shows and over the Internet. It blames billionaires the measure’s landslide passage. “Please bear in mind that, in our fight to defeat I-594, NRA faced unprecedented spending...

    Hobbyist Patrick Priebe has created a terrifyingly awesome laser watch that will burn through objects from afar The Apple Watch is already obsolete and it isn't even in the shops yet. The reason is simple – it doesn't contain a laser that can actually burn stuff. If that's what you're looking for in a smartwatch, forget about Apple and look towards the work of hobbyist Patrick Priebe. He's knocked together what he describes as the "Bond-inspired laser watch" and it might well consign the Apple Watch to the bin of history. That's because this isn't just some laser pointer that...

Today, with more than 45 years of handgunning behind me (yeah, I'm old, but I started early, too) I realize that you actually can cover this topic in a fairly short article. The reason is found in the classic statement of Ray Chapman, the first world champion of the combat pistol....

It is the so far most complicated wristwatch of the eminent family-owned watchmaking company and decidedly one of the world's most elaborate wristwatches. This is due not only to the number of complications involved but also to the horological degrees of complexity, two of which have been added to the annals of watchmaking for the first time. Moreover, the Grandmaster Chime is the first double-face wristwatch presented by Patek Philippe that can be worn with either...

From World War Z to Zombieland to Warm Bodies, our society obviously finds something intensely fascinating about zombies, to the point where it is perhaps the most identifiable facet of today's mass media. But why? Why do zombies, of all things, capture our imagination...

    When a man shooting a .500 Smith & Wesson pistol for the first time took aim at a target and fired, he wasn’t expecting the target to strike back, but it did. The result was a very quick and comical exit to the right once someone yelled at him to “Watch out. Move, move!” And move he did! The incident happened earlier this month while a group of guys were enjoying a night out together with food and a campfire, and a little target practice. “My brother, who is featured in the video, was shooting a .500 for the first...

The long-awaited companion carbine to KeltecÂ’s 22WMR pistol is finally nearing public release. Sensitive to the charges of releasing only trivial numbers of new products, Keltec is preparing to ship several thousand CMR30s late this year. The carbine was originally introduced as RMR30, but the name was changed because of TrijiconÂ’s opposition (they manufacture a small red dot sight called RMR). CMR30 ships with a...

It’s quite easy to pull off and doesn’t require too much time or money. This idea is by Mike Warren, who regularly posts crazy project ideas to his Instructables account. The basic ingredients of the prank are a print of your face, a large glass jar (free of designs on the surface), and some food coloring. There’s one step that will take a bit of know-how: creating the print itself. You’ll need to photograph your head from three sides: left, head-on,...
