Lust in space: Russians lose control of gecko sex satellite

Russian scientists are attempting to re-establish control of a satellite in which a team of geckos may be copulating as part of a study into the effects of weightlessness on lizard mating.

On Thursday, the team behind the research confirmed that the vessel was not responding to commands, potentially leaving the reptiles to their out-of-this-world sexual intercourse while video footage continues to beam down to Earth.

Research satellite Foton-M4 was launched into space on July 19. The geckos are among several species on board — including insects and flora — that are part of a series of biology experiments by Russia’s Institute of Medico-Biological Problems on the effects of weightlessness on mating.

But a glitch has resulted in the scientists losing control of the satellite’s engine, Russian space firm Progress confirmed to the nation’s Interfax news agency on Thursday.

Progress is busily working to re-establish a connection with the operating system — currently on autopilot — before all hope is lost.

The scientists said they are still able to watch video footage of the mating geckos and observe how an absence of gravity affects their sexual behavior.

There was no immediate word from the scientists behind the experiment on Thursday as to whether the geckos had successfully copulated as Foton-M4 hurtled through space.

Indesign Scripting?

We have a client that wants to produce individual PDF infographics for their employees salary & benefits packages. They want it to be an ice cream with for example the cone representing salary, group income protection, life insurance and the scoops representing health insurance and pension etc.

They have 200 fucking employees.

I know you can do scripting in Indesign but further than that I have no clue at all how this might be done.

Can anyone recommend any tutorials, insights or another way to do something like this?

Any help greatly appreciated.

dying anonymity

this round-up of the HOPE conference (for hackers) breaks down the Snowden address and some other stuff.

http://motherboard.vice.com/read…

I found this interesting:
"“I’m not a fan of Edward Snowden,” Steve Rambam, a private investigator who works in finding lost people and fugitives, told the crowd at a panel that evening. “But if you’re worried about the federal government... they outsource their privacy invasion to private companies.”

He showed slide after slide of the privacy invasions practiced by private companies like Google (“Google does whatever the hell it wants. It is an avaricious, rapacious, capitalist company of the kind that hasn’t existed since the beginning of the railroad.”) and Facebook (“Facebook doesn’t like you. Facebook doesn’t care about you. Facebook has contempt for you.”).

“If you’re upset about NSA metadata,” Rambam said, “you should be insane about Google, Facebook, and Twitter.” He kept emphasizing that most of the data about each of us in the world is there because we have volunteered it."

Effing Magic Mouse!

Is there anyway to turn down the sensitivity on this pice of crap?! Working in InDesign and just simply scrolling takes the mouse on a magical journey all over the entire document at times.

So annoying!

Creep of the Day

Four elementary school girls in San Clemente have found dolls crafted to look like just like them left in front of their family homes.

The Orange County Sheriff's Department is investigating the disturbing discoveries, two of which are shown.

external HD with SSD Thunderbolt

I'm looking to upgrade my external HD setup for AE / FCPX work, so I can run a scratchdisk / live projects direct with fastest speeds possible.

In an ideal world I'd get a Drobo Mini and 4 512gb SSD drives, but that's gonna cost megabucks.

Does anyone have any other suggestions?

Canon G16

Anyone in here own this camera?
How do you like it? Is the viewfinder good? I heard you seen the lense a bit when full zoomed. Is it tough enough to be carried arround a lot? Can you post some shots you took?

Mass media dont really talk about it, but this is the largest Ebola infestation of history right now in Afrika. If it spread out, it could kill the 1/3 of World population.

QBNTCE-2014

The "C" stands for collage.

I started a thread about sparking creativity and the things people do to step away from the computer that they sit at all day every day.

cbass99 showed me some of the collages he had done for fun. The thought came to put together a collage exchange. This is where you come in. Myself, cbass99 and lvl_13 have all been sharing some ideas about how this can all happen. If you are interested in participating let me know and we will start the list. Let's use this thread to hash out all the details as well.

Just using this as a great way to do something fun that you don't have to overthink. Plus it connects all us QBN'ers just a little bit more.
