When we post new content on MAKE, we love hearing from our readers. Whether the comments be informative, insightful, or funny, here are our favorites from the past week, from Makezine, our Facebook page, Google+ Community, and Twitter.
In the article Building a Better Egg, robbomills commented:
I won’t be happy until I can crack an egg open and bacon falls out.
In the piece Deek’s Lollipop Fort of Death, chuck remarks:
I just found myself in the shower singing ‘Lollipop Fort of Death’. Thanks a lot for the earworm, Deek! Now I have to listen to ‘Loving You’ by Minnie Riperton to flush it out, but then that gets stuck and I’ll have to play ‘Walking on Sunshine’ and on and on in a vicious circle. Then wintertime rolls around and the gorillas simply freeze to death.
On MAKE’s Twitter page, we got a nice shout-out from Whole Foods:
On MAKE’s Google+ Community, maker Shawn Brezny posted:
Picked up a display for my Raspberry Pi via ebay for $49 and it arrived this weekend. Its the Motorola Atrix 4g laptop dock, which is now discontinued but makes a great Raspberry Pi mod for using it as a display/keyboard/mouse. Just need appropriate USB and HDMI cables/adapters, and power supply. Will let you know what I find and post back here. Inspiration from Adafruit youtube video: Raspberry Pi Laptop with Atrix 4G Dock
In the article How To: Brew Sake, chuck responded with:
The rice and water are essential. Use the best water you can find. Don’t scrimp on the rice, either. Koji can be found at health food stores. Ask your local brewer’s supply for proper yeast, but don’t be afraid to experiment. Some of the best yeast I ever used was from the bulk section at a health food store I used to frequent. It tasted better than most of the specialty brewers yeast I tried at a fraction of the cost. After you get a palatable batch try running it through a simple wok and ice reflux still to produce Soju. Keep in mind that any distillation of alcohol for human consumption is technically illegal, so don’t go crazy, but it is a good skill to have. I don’t think the feds are going to break down your door for a few pints of 60 proof hooch.
