Tab Clearing

A little lighter than the last post.

Are you into comics or comic-themed movies like Iron Man 3, the Avengers, Superman?  (We went to see Iron Man 3 last weekend and thought it was a lot of fun).  An excellent resource is Bleeding Cool. Loaded with great art, along with news on all those movies or shows and even graphic novels (paper?  how quaint...)  I didn't know there's apparently going to be a TV universe from Marvel this fall, a new show called Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  Trailer here

And speaking of comics, or cartoons, this one sure seemed to summarize how well our leaders in Washington take responsibility when things aren't going so well.

Ever wanted to really know how a GPS receiver works?  I mean at the deepest levels?  A friend sent me this link to a home made GPS receiver project.  A little homebrew radio section, a Raspberry Pi single board computer, a Spartan 3 FPGA evaluation kit and a whole lot of experimenting.  In a time when most people have a GPS on their phone, you might wonder why anyone would want to do this.  Clearly, you don't know about The Knack.
