This is the birthday cake made by Wedding Cakes By Nicole featuring Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, Tetris and Frogger scenes on each side, and Pong on the top. And if you think I wouldn’t peel all those characters off and eat them you are incorrect. Dead incorrect. If you were a computer game you ‘d be blinking GAME OVER right now.
Dimity asked me to create a cake for her Fiance, Stephen, who adores “old-fashioned” video game.
I created a 3 tier square cake, with each of the sides representing a preferred retro platform game. Topped off with a game off Pong, with the score showing Stephen’s “30″ years. The board had a joystick, buttons and coin slot.
Man, I would have gotten rid of to have that birthday cake. Hell, I would have pushed someone down the stairs to have ANY cake. And choked somebody for a single pal to even keep in mind my birthday. Do you even understand which month it is? \* waving knife \* TELL ME WHICH MONTH IT IS. \* journeys and falls on knife \* I simply … desired … a shock celebration.
Hit the jump for shots from all around.
An amazing cut from an early 90s instructional video. Warning: you may never use a typewriter again.

The Raspberry Pi microcomputer has already put more than a million Pis in the hands of makers, tinkerers, parents and kids in its first year on sale. Which is an impressive feat for a device that’s designed to get more people dabbling in electronics and thinking about how software works. The Pi Foundation actually wanted to create a device that U.K. kids could cut their coding teeth on. But here’s a sign of how much more potential Pi has, above and beyond its original mission: Pis are being used to power a secondary school computing lab in rural Cameroon.
In a guest post on the Pi Foundation’s blog, a volunteer from a Belgian group that raised the funds to build and equip the school writes how they took 30 Pis out to Cameroon in their suitcase and used them to create a computing lab — along with screens, keyboards and mice bought locally. This Pi-powered computing class is itself powered by an on-site generator since the school is not connected to the public power network.
The school in question — Saint Marcellin Comprehensive College — is located in a small village called Binshua, close to Nkambe in the Northwest region of Cameroon. At present the Pis are being used for teaching the children how to use office productivity software but the aim is to get the kids coding too, in time:
All of the systems run on the Raspbian image from December, with LibreOffice and CUPS installed. The Pis are currently used to teach the children the basics of working with an Office suite. But we made sure that we gave the teacher a little introduction (and a good book) on programming in Scratch. So, now we are hoping that this will get Scratch introduced in the school curriculum as well.
The school’s lab doesn’t currently have an Internet connection but that’s something the Belgian group is working to change too.
The computers are all connected in a network. The central point of the network is a router that’s ready to be connected to a WAN modem. We hope to be able to provide a connection to the internet in the near future, which would certainly bring a small revolution into this rural area. Even without an internet connection, we believe that we created an advanced computer lab in this underdeveloped area. Giving the children in the area a chance to work their way to a better future. And that is our motivation.
It isn’t a stretch to say this small, low cost, low power microcomputer has the potential to provide a first computing experience for many more people in developing countries. The Pi hardware is cheaper than most mobile phones, let alone most smartphones — the other device touted as the likely first computing experience for the “next billions”. And it’s a lot cheaper than another Linux-based low cost computing project: the one laptop per child’s XO laptop (albeit, the price of the peripherals needs to be factored it).
In the following video, a teacher at the school is shown introducing the Pi to the class, and even though she mentions Microsoft’s Windows OS the reference is not likely to put smiles on many faces in Redmond: ”This small box is not working with Windows operating system… It works with another type of operating system. It’s Linux. It’s also very popular — and it’s for free.”

Question by John S: What can I do to better increase my chances at getting into an Ivy League school?
These are the classes I am taking next year as a sophomore.
I feel like I am just mediocre… My ec’s are: math team, HOSA, key, track, cross country, volunteer at mosi, and robotics team. How do my chances look if I score a 2200+ on my SAT’s?
Answer by Zarathustra
You’ll need a 3.8+ GPA (preferably a 4.0) and a top 5% ranking. With that, your extracurriculars, and a 2200, you have a decent chance. Volunteering and a stellar essay always help too. Since Ivy Leagues have such low acceptance rates, it’s always a crapshoot. They reject thousands of valedictorians each year.

Science proves it.
Most research about Facebook these days paints a picture of a depressing place where people who don’t really know you make you feel bad about yourself. But a new study confirms that it's actually very useful for its most basic, homespun purpose: helping young people keep in touch with their high school friends.
Researcher Kevin Johnston and his coauthors surveyed 572 college students in South Africa about their Facebook use and their “social capital,” which is defined basically as the benefits they get from relationships with people. The researchers measured the students' social capital by asking questions like how much they felt a part of their college's community and how comfortable they'd be asking a high school acquaintance for a favor.
Heavy Facebook use, they found, was associated with several kinds of social capital, but the most significant correlation was with “maintained” social capital — essentially, the benefits of staying close with your existing friends from home. In addition to being able to ask for favors, students who used Facebook a lot were more likely to say they could find out about job opportunities or events in another town from high school friends or acquaintances.
Thinking of old friends in terms of “capital” may seem a bit cold, but of course these friendships have intrinsic value too. Johnston and his coauthors mention research on “friendsickness,” or “the anguish caused by loss of contact with friends.” Facebook may be able to mitigate this feeling, even when friends are far apart physically.
Previous research has backed up the importance of high school friends on Facebook. Researchers at Michigan State University, for example, found that undergrads thought high school friends made up the main “audience” of their Facebook profiles — 97% said these friends would see their profiles, while only about 15% said strangers would see them.
Of course, the idea that Facebook is useful for keeping up with childhood friends isn't news to anyone who's used to getting status updates from their former lab partner ten times a day. Still, its worthwhile to remember that the network isn't just a place where people make new, “virtual” (often understood as “fake”) friends, but also a place where they keep up with their oldest real-life friends. And that act of keeping up can have both emotional and practical benefits.
Who do you think looks at your Facebook profile?
Above are college students' responses to this question. Close to 100% of students said their high school friends saw their profiles, while a much smaller percentage thought strangers would look at it.
