This story was originally published in 2014. We're resurfacing it today because, well, it's a Bank Holiday and we thought you'd enjoy a geeky blast from the Internet past. A few days ago, my wife messaged me a photo from a thrift shop with the question, "You want?" The picture was of a box of software still in shrinkwrapSPRY Inc.'s Internet in a Box for Windows 95. The answer was an obvious "OMG YES." I reviewed Internet in a Box back in 1993 when it was first released as an early adopter of independent local Internet dialup (using David Troy's Toad.Net ). I spent endless hours connected with the software and my very first laptop PC, pulling down Hubble Telescope images from the Space Telescope Science Institute's Gopher server and raging at Usenet posts. Just the sight of the logo caused a wave of nostalgia to wash over me. It was a simpler time, a somewhat less user-friendly time. CompuServe was still a thing. Read 11 remaining paragraphs | Comments

RPV away, off the stern of the USS Iowa in 1987. (credit: US Navy photo) Today is Memorial Day in the US, and we wanted to recognize the Ars readers and staff who've served by resurfacing another military memory from our resident Navy man, Sean Gallagher. Sean served aboard the USS Iowa , and here he recalls how he contributed to drone warfare with chocolate chip cookies (seriously). This piece originally ran in May 2015. Two weeks ago, I made a pilgrimage to the Port of Los Angeles to visit the ship that played a central part in setting me on the path that put me where I am today—the battleship USS Iowa . And as I walked toward the Big Stick at its new home in San Pedro, a ship's boat sitting on the pier alongside her triggered a recollection of one of the most memorable episodes in my tour aboard Iowa: a night in late September of 1987 when I left my somewhat minor mark on the history of drone warfare with a box of chocolate chip cookies.

Memorial day is supposed to be the day Americans come together to pay respect to the people who've died while serving the countryor, if you're Ivanka Trump, make popsicles. On Sunday, the Ivanka Trump brand posted a painfully tone deaf tweet just in time for the holiday.

The first thing you see is a three-screen film by Kogonada, Way of Ozu. It shows interiors from the famous film director's work, precise scenes of domestic life in elegant lightweight grid-like spaces, which are increasingly filled with consumer goods as the films move into colour. These traditional interiors were re-classified by Japanese architects and writers as proto-modernist, modular, fixed around a complex play of interior/exterior, and made up of replaceable parts. "Katsura is Mondrianesque!" says Yashuhiro Ishimoto in his photo-book on the titular wooden 17th century palace, with its contributions by Walter Gropius and Kenzo Tange. The first houses we see are in the Katsura vein, wooden, modern, cubic and raised from the ground in country settings. A telling caption on most of them tells the visitor that they've already been demolished.

Enlarge / RiME is often a peaceful game, but it has a few harrowing moments. (credit: Tequila Works) I have had one of the most gorgeous Memorial Day weekends that I can recall, replete with beautiful, exotic memories. Some are dotted with endless coastlines and remarkable rock formations. Others are covered by bizarre memorials to an unnamed past, all scorched by the sun and set into contrast by raging thunderstorms. Each has contained its fair share of sky-burning sunsets, foliage-lined cavern glades, and wild animals. Roughly every 15 minutes, I have stopped, marveled, and taken a photo. Now that my trip is complete, I have a scrapbook of my experiences. It's among my favorites of the past few years. This has been my experience with the video game RiME , which launched a few days ago on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PCs. I got behind on other work ahead of the Memorial Day weekend and figured I'd play this cute, "narrative puzzle-platformer" in a few hours, then write some impressions before I clocked out for the holiday.

Finally, as to what to put in your banner, we like to follow a few basic rules: Use a high-resolution image. A pixelated or blurry banner doesn't exactly signal that there's high-quality video to follow. Keep it on-brand. While your channel art doesn't have to be a carbon copy of your logo or tagline, it should incorporate visual elements that you want associated with your brand, like certain colors, fonts, or keywords. Your banner should represent what your company does in a timely fashion. For example, if you run a bakery and you're gearing up for summer, an eye-catching banner might be a high-res photo of a brightly-colored work surface covered with flour and a rolling pin, along with accompanying text like, "April showers bring May flours." How to Make a YouTube Banner That's just great, Amanda," you might be thinking about these tips. "But where the heck am I supposed to get these beautiful design assets?" Well, you're in luck -- it turns out that there are dozens of free resources for creating a great YouTube banner.

It may seem hard to believe from this photo, but the driver of this vehicle walked away unscathed after it ended up on its roof in an accident in Delabole. Not only did the car land the wrong way up, but it narrowly missed plunging into a house and almost getting wedged between a bay window and a porch. Debris including broken glass and foliage were strewn across the road as a result. The incident, which only involved the one car, happened at around 8.50pm on Sunday night on the A395 near...

And cooperation in the pursuit of knowledge can hopefully lead to cooperation in the pursuit of peace. Commencement Address at Yale University June 11, 1962 Yale University. Photo: Getty I am particularly glad to become a Yale man because as I think about my troubles, I find that a lot of them come from other Yale men. Among businessmen I have had a minor disagreement with Roger Blough of the law school class of 1931, and I have had some complaints from my friend Henry Ford of the class of 1940. In journalism I seem to have a difference with John Hay Whitney, of the class of 1926—and sometimes I also displease Henry Luce of the class of 1920, not to mention also William F. Buckley, Jr. of the class of 1950. I even have some trouble with my Yale advisers. I get along with them, but I am not always sure how they get along with each other… For the great enemy of truth is very often not the liedeliberate, contrived and dishonest—but the mythpersistent, persuasive, and unrealistic.

Nothing to see hare. Just an adorable animal having a cheeky cigarette break. An image of a hare scuttling across the road at Dublin Airport while puffing away on what looks like a cigarette has amused and amazed Twitter users in equal measure. A photo taken by Louise Acheson was shared with a glorious pun-filled caption. "In things I never expect, a hare with a cigarette in its mouth just ran past me at @DublinAirport" tweeted Acheson. "Duty free? # cigharette # nothingtodeclhare ." In things I never expect, a hare with a cigarette in its mouth just ran past me @DublinAirport !
