Super Fast Cars and Future Trucks

Say what! The new Tesla roadster will be able to go 0 to 60 in 1.9 seconds. First thing I want to know is how long is that battery going to last? Is that just a ride to the grocery store and back. Needless to say that sounds like a lot of fun. So it Seems that Mr. Elon musk didn’t end the day with just that. He also decided to bring us some brand new fancy 18 wheelers. That look something straight out of blade runner. What a wild world we are living in.

Forgot password to your MySQL database

I have done this a couple of times in the past. With all the passwords that we have to remember it’s sometimes hard to keep up with all of them.

New Pi-Top

So you may be wondering what in the world is the pi-top? A pi-top is a small laptop that has a raspberry pi as the mainboard. The small little bored is the whole brain of the machine. The pi-top is a housing unit to keep the raspberry pi. It adds the functionality of a keyboard and a monitor like a laptop. The new model supplies a battery as well. Meaning that you can use it like a real laptop. One of the coolest features of the pi-top is the ability to access the pi board itself so you can access the IO. So you can get really inventive. The last version was a little lackluster. It was still very awesome idea. I look forward to seeing some reviews on it. I might have to get one for myself.
