I bought a couple relay modules for the Arduino to Borg together more of my house.  The first objective will be for the Incubator to drive the sprinklers with the Cron and Arduino service.  Also, I'll be looking into a web interface so my wife can manually override the sprinkler system.

Standards can be a powerful thing.  Standards in software can create quicker development, more extensible applications, and more robust systems.   This is when the standards and the entity which controls the standards is effective.

Examples when "standards" don't work out, J2EE. This is an example of an overly complex, design by committee anti-pattern.   

But, I thought this looked interesting.

trying a different Haar classifier .. there seems to be serval pre-made ones face, eye, full body, profile, mcs eye pair, upper-body, lower-body...  Makes me wonder about creating new classifiers...

Alright Alessandruino is probably going to be me with TLD+ script for MRL.   But, I saw something which looked really cool and it looks like a "happy monkey" tutorial !
