Bob Eichler's Home Page edit / delete

Fairly high overlap with my interests: classic game hardware, detailed reviews of prog rock albums and shows, Frank Zappa references on MST3K. Pity about the obnoxious Javascript malware injected by the hosting provider!

Kit Rae: Guitars and Gear edit / delete

Lots of guitar-related stuff, but particularly interesting for the detailed history of the Big Muff Pi fuzz pedals -- with discussion of all the different models, circuit differences, etc. -- and Tangerine Dream's film score for "The Keep". A substantial time sink.

μWWVB: A Tiny WWVB Station · cat /var/log/life edit / delete

"μWWVB is a watch stand that automatically sets the time on atomic wristwatches where regular WWVB signal isn’t available. The system acquires the correct time via GPS and sets radio-controlled clocks by emulating the amplitude-modulated WWVB time signal." Awesome!

Geopolitical Hedging as a Service | Jon Bruner edit / delete

"It’s possible to force [Google Maps and MS maps] to display the map corresponding to a particular country, though, and I’ve done that here in order to compare the maps that they serve to different constituencies."
