  • Riecoin and OS X
    The Riecoin website (http://riecoin.org) suggests that Mac binary works for OS X. Unfortunately it doesn't appear to work on either OS X 10.9 Mavericks or 10.10 Yosemite: if you double click the Riecoin-Qt.app in the disk image, OS X complains that it "may be damaged or incomplete." The trick is to...

  • Electric Razor: Construction
    So I kind of never made a post on the machining and construction of the rest of the scooter (other than the motor), even though it came (chronologically) before the motor testing. Instead of making a bunch of separate posts, I am just going to dump it all here in one post. The scooter body […]...
