It looks like some clever chap as build a fully functioning four bit adder inside an unmodded Cities: Skylines. The best part of this simulated circuit is that it’s partly powered by simulated in-game poo.

Northern Lights at York Minster
I had a good but long weekend. Saturday was, of course, filled with watching England’s hard-fought victory against New Zealand in the Rugby World Cup. Beer was drunk (to excess!) and a good time was has by all.
Sunday was a little more highbrow; I popped up to York and spent a very enjoyable 30 minutes watching two showings of Northern Lights at York Minster – a fantastic laser, lights, and audio installation in York Minster’s Nave. I thoroughly recommend it and would suggest that you either see one of the few remaining shows of this season or jump in early when it (hopefully!) returns next year.
Here’s a short documentary I found about it:
The Power of Telemetry
The online backup company Backblaze – of which I am a reasonably satisfied long-term customer – makes statistics about the hard drives they use public. A chap called Ryan Smith took this telemetry and, with a little data wrangling and some educated guesses, worked out large parts of their business model – including important elements of their asset replacement cycle.
Telemetry is creepy. Turn it off.
Oh Zippy… you naughty, naughty Dalek!
Dalek Zippy is always an amusing little watch on a lazy Sunday morning.
This is kinda cool; the rather agriculturally-named BacklinkShitter datamines the Common Crawl dataset to find out who links back to your site.
This should show the links to Chrisrcook.com and this should show the links to this page!
