By far, the most popular DIY project for the Raspberry Pi is to use it as a retro game console. So, with the release of the Raspberry Pi 3 a lot of people are curious how it performs in comparison to older models. Adafruit did a live stream showing just that. Adafruit's video is just a stream with a base setup of Retropie, so some of the glitches they run into are likely things that you could troubleshoot around. Regardless, the video does a good job of showing how the emulators look and perform on the new Raspberry Pi 3. If you don't feel like watching the video, the basics are pretty straightforward: NES, Game Boy, SNES, Genesis, Gameboy Advance, Nintendo 64 and Playstation all work great. They had decent luck with some PSP games, but had some sound glitches along the way. They also had trouble with emulation on Saturn games and Dreamcast games (which could just be a control setup problem), and couldn't get Nintendo DS or Sega CD games to load at all. If you head over to YouTube, they have included time codes to jump to specific parts in the video for each console if you're curious about how one system looks.

I hate flying. I hate the cramped seats, I hate the food and I hate the hurry-up-and-wait mentality of airports. Imagine my delight then after spending 33-hours trapped on a Cathay Pacific flight from New York to Hong Kong thanks to bad weather and the bad Chinese government. Welcome to the flight from hell.
We're five episodes into the latest instalment of the Star Trek television canon. Despite some weirdness about the Klingons appearance and the way they speak, I think Star Trek. Discovery has the potential to be the best Star Trek series put to air. Some, perhaps many, will disagree but after just five episodes, I've seen enough to make me think this could take the franchise into places Gene Roddenberry never went before.
