Holy Gebus look at that: It’s FRIDAY!

So fast. And where I am: it’s hot!

Let’s get going…

Pizza Hut Training Video 1988

“***I was the single camera operator for this instructional video series from 1987-88, that was produced in a Chicagoland area, industrial test kitchen for Pizza Hut/PepsiCo.. Original recording on 3/4 inch U-Matic videotape.”

This is gold.

We made all 78 Breath of the Wild recipes in one day

As in: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

“Link needs to eat in order to gain hearts, but are his recipes any good? Brian David Gilbert teams up with Eater’s Adam Moussa to discover which of Breath of the Wild’s 78 recipes are tasty and how many hearts they should actually restore.”

Note: nearly 32 minutes, but entertaining. Yikes!

The World’s Most Popular Algorithm: SHA 256 and Bitcoin

“No one on Earth knows how to reverse the SHA-256 hash function. Yet it’s really easy to compute one-way. You could make billions of dollars if you solved this mathematics problem.”

Welll….. “billions” of dollars if you knew how to make bitcoin liquid. Still!

Let’s wait four more years and see if Quantum computing has any effect on this.

The Problem Solving of Filmmaking

“A short video expanding on something I talk about on the Shazam commentary track (Shazam is now available on digital and if you buy the iTunes version you get a commentary track along with the other extras).”

Created by David F. Sandberg.

And there we go!

Thanks for playing along at home everybody.

See you in a week.
