At the University of Washington Bothell, professor Tyler Folsom is working to make sure bicycles are included in the movement toward self-driving vehicles.
This post is a bit of a moan so please forgive me. I love the Raspberry Pi and have been using it for a variety of projects. The one project I want to build still completely eludes me. Combining a Pi with the official touchscreen, a storage drive and a battery. There are some projects with print your own instructions but most projects don’t go the whole way:
The OSMC PiDrive lets you take your Raspberry Pi and media collection with you on the go. This stylish, compact case keeps your media center tidy while maintaining access to all important connectivity. It’s not bad on the eyes either. This is a unique collaboration between OSMC and WDLabs.
Great – but how about the touchscreen and battery please?
Organize your cables and neatly integrate a Raspberry Pi with mass storage* inside a sleek, modular bundle with the WD PiDrive Enclosure. The WD PiDrive Enclosure is ideal for home or work DIY projects like building a Linux® PC, NAS server, an HDMI-enabled personal media player, or even a surveillance server.
And again – looks good but no battery and screen!
So please if anyone knows of something that combines the above please let me know or alternatively I’ll use elastic bands.
On many occasions we don’t need to use the mouse and that is true of many programmes. So here is a few I have used whilst using Twitter and YouTube. These are not exhaustive and I am sure there are loads more elsewhere. This is just to get you going.
Play/pause = Space (this sometimes also moves the page down!)
Full screen = f
Mute sound = m
You can also use the play, forward, rewind buttons on your keyboard!
Whenever you use sudo on Ubuntu, the terminal will ask you to enter your user password.
That’s fine. We’re all used to that. It’s a great security measure.
But here’s the rub: the terminal doesn’t offer any sort of visual feedback as you type in your password. This confuses and confounds new users, who are often left uncertain as to whether they’ve entered anything at all!

Let’s say you need to free up some space on Ubuntu — how do you go about it?
Unlike Windows, with its built-in defrag and disk clean-up tools, Ubuntu doesn’t make it immediately obvious how you go about trying to free up space.
What do you do once you’ve emptied the trash, and deleted those .ISO downloads? How do you recover more space?
We’re going to show you 5 super simple (and in some cases blindingly obvious if easily forgotten) steps you can take to get back those GBs, materialise more MBs, and clean out the stale KBs.
Whenever you need more space — and heck, even if you don’t — here are 5 simple ways to free up disk space on Ubuntu.

I love the Lifehacker site and when it comes out with such simple tips as this, I like it even more…
Weave zip ties around a group of cables to keep them organized and neat.
In the video above, ChrisFix shows how to make spark plug looms out of zip ties. When woven together like this, the zip ties bundle the wires together—while also keeping them distinct and separate.
You could do this with thick cables such as adapter plugs, too.
