    Cool Anyone know this guy? Sounds like he'd fit right in around here...

    Discovered this little gem on Reddit a few days ago. I think I've seen a few of his earlier videos posted here, but I think they were posted by others. Sure would be cool if he was a member here though...

    Anyone know him personally?

    suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness.

    Thumbs up Well what do you know? He *is* a member!

    Bingo! That's the video I was thinking of. Though it seems I remembered incorrectly. It was in fact posted by Marcan himself. I guess since he's only posted twice I just assumed someone else had posted the video. (oops!)

    Sure would be nice to hear more about this project of his though. (Or better yet, get him to a LEM...)

    Its somewhat open, but you would need to compile the code and build the hardware.
    In other words, its not a finished .exe file for non programmers.

    A better way of saying it is "free source code"

    How do I put this?
    Its something programmers do intentionally or otherwise when they want to restrict access to some thing to a small community. Or perhaps force some one else to see beauty in their work. If you want it, you must learn to understand it and make it work on your own.

    Hi Steve,

    I really do not think this is intentional, more the result of people functioning at a higher level.
