Close-up of previous photo showing track officials and course workers debating what to do with Carlos, who continued to just lay there bleeding from his severe cuts and a double skull fracture. Dave Nicholas, who took the photo, thinks the officials thought that Carlos was dead so there was no rush to tend to his wounds. Photo courtesy of Dave Nicholas



Finally they got Carlos on a gurney and off the track. In this photo we see the course workers were also moving the wrecked car out of the way as the race continued. A nurse attended to Carlos’s injuries. He survived this incident to race again. Photo courtesy of Dave Nicholas

This child here has no running water or food. She has no toys to play with but a rock she found down the street that she kicks around.
With just one picture a day you will make this child happy.

40% sure this will be my next project, with a LS/turbo/4L80e swap. I can probably get most of the way there for what I can sell my subaru for. 7 series' do not hold their value. 5mt Turbo subaru's do.

This is the clock which I have sitting on a shelf in my office:

I agree completely.

It's just something I designed about ten years ago out of boredom. I'm the original hipster of binary clocks (was building them before they were on ThinkGeek.)

It does not contain a microprocessor or a crystal- it's all discrete logic which takes the incoming 60Hz AC power signal, rectifies it down into a clock, and then drives a pair of 4 bit counters (74LS193) configured as a single 8 bit counter. Each counter pair goes into a dual 4 input NAND gate (74LS20) which determines when the appropriate count has been reached (60 in the case of minutes and seconds, and either 12 or 24 for the hours) which then clears the counters and passes one clock pulse down to the next section.

The LEDs didn't come out well in crappy cell-phone pic, but they're easy to read IRL.

On the plus side, it keeps my binary sight-reading ability sharp, which believe it or not is still a relevant skill.




When I was in college, a friend of mine (a ME) built a lot of really esoteric clocks completely out of wood (gears and all). They were friggin' massive- 4 to 6 feet in diameter- and it kind of started an informal competition.

I keep wanting to build a liquid clock, driven by the steady dripping of water from a single orifice into a series of weighted containers which tip over and fill one another. I've got a basic plan for it in my head, but haven't quite figured out some logistical details.

Actually, what I *really* want to do is to build a clock powered entirely by white mice. It would be a habitat with gates that open and close to allow the mice to enter different areas at different times, with the position and quantity of mice in the various sections of the clock representing the time. Exercise wheels at various locations would generate tiny amounts of electricity, which would be used to drive a control processor and also charge a capacitor bank that would operate the gates. The only downside is that this would require me to feed / care for / clean up after a large number of mice, which is not something that appeals to me.

So, enlighten us. What time is that displaying?

How much would it cost to build one (minus case)?


edit: what do the switches do? For setting the time?
