In total, f our production models will be orange and one will be grey. McLaren test driver Kenny Bräck drove the car up the hill this weekend. He will also drive it around the Nürburgring to tweak the final set-up of the production versions. Lanzante decided to undertake the conversion work following demand from customers who have bought the track-only version of the P1 GTR from the factory. More than 40 £1.98 million P1 GTRs were sold, with the cars being offered to existing P1 road car owners only. The track car has a kerb weight of 1440kg, giving it around 685bhp per tonne. Neither the McLaren factory nor its MSO division has been directly involved but McLaren is believed to have given the project its blessing. "I wouldn't do anything to damage our relationship with McLaren, which we've built up over 20 years through our work on the F1," said Lanzante boss Dean Lanzante.

Alan Martin 3 min 9 sec ago Facebook Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg finally has that Harvard diploma he missed out on when he instead decided to work on a rival to MySpace, Bebo and Friendster back in 2004. All in all, it was a decision that probably paid off. He now sits fourth in the Forbes rich list , and Facebook seems to be doing pretty well for itself – which is more than can be said for MySpace, Bebo and Friendster. But Zuckerberg didnt just pop by to pick up his degree and then head back to the office. Instead he stuck around long enough to give the commencement address to this year’s set of graduates. “If I get through this speech, it’ll be the first time I actually finish something at Harvard,” he began. See related Facebook Spaces is an awkward reminder of how far VR is from the mainstream Mark Zuckerberg writes manifesto on the future of Facebook He used his speech to discuss ideas he’s backed before, most prominently the need to consider a universal basic income in a world where automation is going to change the world of work beyond all recognition .

It used to be hot air soldering gear was exotic, but not anymore. There are plenty of relatively inexpensive choices. Many of these appear to be the same despite having different brand names and model numbers. One that is common and inexpensive is the 858D. These run about $50. [Gabse] has one and decided to upgrade it using some open source controller hardware and software. There wasn't a complete guide, so he created one himself . According to the original GitHub page, the controller will work with the Youyue-858D and any clones. However, there are others like the Atten 858D that use a different controller. In addition, there have been several variants. [Gabse's] guide is for the latest version. Information on other versions and brands might be on this discussion board thread . The new controller and firmware offer better temperature regulation, a safety feature that prevents the handpiece from heating up if power is applied when the handpiece is not docked, fan fault detection, a cold air mode, a sleep mode, and more.

Kodi 17 Krypton hasn't been out for that long, but already attention has been turned to the next release, version 18. This time around, the XBMC Foundation has not let the community vote for a codename. Instead, the team decided that there could be only one choice, Leia. Named in honour of Carrie Fisher, who passed away in 2016, the XBMC Foundation announced via a blog post that it "thought there could not be a more fitting tribute than to name a version of Kodi after one of the most butt-kicking princesses in cinematic history". It's a fine choice in our opinion, and even more fitting given that the 25 May 2017 marked the 40th anniversary of Star Wars: A New Hope. It's early days for Kodi 18 Leia, but stay tuned over the coming months for all the latest news about the media player's new features. Kodi 18 Leia release date Kodi 18 Leia has only just entered beta, with no official release date on the horizon.

[Andreas Spiess] picked up a few inexpensive radar sensors. He decided to compare the devices and test them andlucky for ushe collected his results in a video you can see below. The questions he wanted to answer were: Are they 3.3 V-compatible? How much current do they draw? How long to they show a detection? How far away can they detect the motion of a typical adult? What is the angle of detection? Can they see through certain materials? Can the devices coexist with other devices in the same area? What about WiFi networks? Good list of questions, and if you want to know the answers, you should watch the video. The devices he examines are the RCWL-0512, HW-MS03, WB3-12, XYC-WB-D1, and the HFS-DC06. The RCWL module is the least expensive, and we found several places selling them for anywhere from fifty cents to a dollar each. The most expensive modulethe HFS-DC06is about $5.

Also, any game that lets you be a luchador in a leopard mask, a mohawked cybernetic brute, or a martial artist grizzly bear is always worth your time. Fact. We found not just one, but two excellent strategy titles from developer Double Fine on Xbox Game Pass' starting lineup, so we decided "hey, why not have them share a slot?" In Massive Chalice, you take on the role of an immortal leader ruling a kingdom by making decisions both long and short term, as well as commanding forces as they repel an encroaching mystical scourge. In Iron Bridage (formerly known as Trenched) you play a pilot of a mobile trench a sort of old-timey bipedal mech in an alternate post-WWI history as you square off against hordes of mechanical monsters. With Massive Chalice being more about turn-based strategy and Iron Brigade a shooter/tower defense hybrid, players looking for a nice blend of genres in their strategy gaming can't go wrong with these two titles.

Lobo’s opposition to Obamacare centers on its medical-device tax, which was was added to subsidize the cost of expanding coverage and was projected to net $27 billion for that purpose. Medical-device makers were singled out because they would benefit from expanded insurance coverage. The tax was suspended for two years at the end of 2015 and would be repealed entirely by the AHCA “The tax, really, is a job killer. It’s an innovation killer,” Lobo told CNBC on Dec. 9, 2016. “Congress decided to suspend it. It had bipartisan support just for suspension for a two-year period but we look forward to, with the new administration, a full repeal.””* Read more here: https://medium.com/theyoungturks/med-tech-giants-case-for-repealing-obamacare-at-odds-with-its-financial-filings-da7f5a27a507 Hosts: Cenk Uygur Cast: Cenk Uygur *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

SOT, Protester (French): "I came here because what is happening in the USA is also happening here in Belgium: racism, xenophobia, discrimination and sexism are arriving, and it is symbolised not only by Trump but also in Europe by Marine Le Pen and Francken, and people like that. And therefore I would like to tell you, the people who think like that, that you are not welcome here and we will fight so that your ideas don't win here." SOT, Protester (French): "I am demonstrating against the politics of war, anti-feminist policies, sexism, negation of the problem of climate change, the military supremacy of the western world, the position of military policy of the US and Europe, [INAUDIBLE], it is very global situation.

The Game of Thrones team is sounding off on President Donald Trump. Author George R.R. Martin and star Kit Harington slam the Commander-in-Chief in the latest issue of Esquire , which has a cover story on the Jon Snow actor. I think Joffrey is now the king in America, Martin said (referring to Thrones infamously sadistic and immature former ruler). And hes grown up just as petulant and irrational as he was when he was 13 in the books. While Harington said: I believe in experts Mr. Donald Trump I wouldnt call him President, Ill call him Mister. I think this man at the head of your country is a con artist. Yet Harington wasnt too impressed by famous liberal activist and fellow actor Sean Penn either, noting he found it annoying when the star decided to get involved in the Falklands: I was like, It has nothing to do with you, Sean Penn.
