software bug in military robot injures 14

I like collecting stories of horrendous software bugs, but this one is a bit scarier than most:

March of the terminators: But what happens when robot warriors turn their guns on us? | Mail Online: "Another 14 are seriously injured. The report will later blame the bloodbath on a 'software glitch'."

Picture flow is free Coverflow QT widget. It looks beautiful.

My favorite thing about Delphi development was the vast array of off the shelf components (widgets in QT parlance) you could download/buy. I'm hoping QT starts to gain that same momentum.

I spent way too long one night trying to convert a bunch of videos from a friend's Flip camera into something my old video editing software could deal with.

Badaboomit is supposed to do stuff like that automagically, and take advantage of my Nvidia GPU to speed up the process.
