2600 Hacker Quarterly and Make Magazine

20 June 2005 No Comment

The other day in Borders I came across Make magazine, targetted at the engineer, this magazine describes all sorts of things which the average person would dismiss as silly but which I would view as generally cool. Examples are: How to build a light-seeking robot from an old mouse, install Linux on your iPod and how to recycle rubber.

I should also mention the other more established magazine which really paved the way for Make and that is 2600 – the hacker quarterly. This is basically a small-jam-in-your-pocket quarterly which details similar stuff like how to hack a vending machine, Hunting Wifi Leeches and Magnetic Stripe Reading . Great stuff.

And finally a problem: How do you start a fire with a can of coke (or any beverage) and a bar of chocolate?
Answer tomorrow.
