It's been a long time since I made something, somehow I felt motivated enough to build again. Hope you enjoy this FULLY RECOLORABLE piece of cake as much as I do.

I managed to make this without making the code way too huge, the whole thing you can see on the picture is around 700kb, without the rails it's a bit less, 630kb.

 

Now it's time for some alien crazyness!

 

Now the formalities...:) :

The Fusil Automatique Léger ("Light Automatic Rifle") or FAL is a self-loading, selective fire battle rifle produced by the Belgian armaments manufacturer Fabrique Nationale de Herstal (FN). During the Cold War it was adopted by many North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) countries, with the notable exception of the United States. It is one of the most widely used rifles in history, having been used by more than 90 countries.

The FAL was predominantly chambered for the 7.62×51mm NATO round, and because of its prevalence and widespread use among the armed forces of many NATO countries during the Cold War it was nicknamed "The right arm of the Free World".

A British Commonwealth derivative of the FN FAL has been produced under licence as the L1A1 Self-Loading Rifle.

 

Cartridge -7.62×51mm NATO

Action - Gas-operated, tilting breechblock

Rate of fire - 600–700 rounds/min

T-shirt for the Wikipedia campaign.

 

Many people tend to view Wikipedia as an unreliable source of information because anyone can edit entries on the website.

 

Our concept was to present an everyday person as an "expert" on a specific subject in order to show that whether the information comes from a university professor or from an avid gamer, it is still reliable.

 

Each piece shows a straight view of each persona and a mind map of their thought process. We felt this approach humanizes the experience of Wikipedia.

 

The campaign consists of three magazine ads, two posters, one t-shirt, one direct mailer, and a tv-spot (not shown).

 

Our tag reads: "I [edit] wikipedia"

 

The brackets around the word "edit" are a reference to the brackets around the edit links on the actual wikipedia site.

Collaboration...maybe to be more accurate needs a few people disagreeing. I originally drew this because I'm trying to get involved in the Wikipedia Educator Project, which has many blog posts worth of challenges. I've removed the nc so that it may be used in Wikipedia itself.

I love Wikipedia, because it is devoted to the future.

Overview of the academic studies applying data visualization in Wikipedia analysis by Martina Cecchi

Ever wonder how Wikipedia maintains such a high degree of quality material on any given subject? They have an army of unpaid content curators. They also have you.

 

The all-volunteer team of curators is constantly checking new submissions to ensure they meet the rules that Wikipedia established that were designed to prevent self-promotion, that articles only reference reliable sources, and establish levels of 'notability' for things that get their own article. Those that don’t meet the guidelines, they remove.

I was surprised to come upon this magnificent flower in my own backyard as it was almost completely obscured by the overgrowth of other plants. In the process of identifying it, I got involved in opening an account on Wikipedia in order to edit a page containing confusing statements. It has been a fun process of discovery overall.

Écoeurée du manque de respect (et d'action) pour la Nature de la part des politiciens et du deni d'encore tant de personnes face au changement climatique. Arretez donc de voter pour les partis traditionnels, extrémistes ou les beaux parleurs ... 😡😖

 

Stop voting for those who do not respect and protect Nature. Start acting for Nature in every day life ... 😥😱

 

Arrabbiata perché i politici non fanno niente per la Natura e ancora tanta gente non vuole accorgersi dei cambiamenti climatici. 😡😖. Anche TU e tutti noi possiamo fare piccole azioni per salvaguardare la Natura, allora ... dai, dai !!!

Eric Litvin presents the Wikipedia picture of the day on November 25, 2016: Topiary (practice of clipping the foliage and twigs of trees and shrub to develop and maintain defined shapes) gardener (or artist?) working a cypress in the cemetery of Tulcán, located in the city of Tulcán, capital of the Carchi Province, north of Ecuador. The cemetery, of a surface of 8 hectares (20 acres), was founded in 1932 to replace the former on that was damaged in the 1923 earthquake. José María Azael Franco Guerrero was back in 1936 in charge of the city parks and started topiary works in the Tulcán cemetery. In the meanwhile the cemetery park has become internationally popular in the art of topiary and was renamed in 2007 to cemetery Azael Franco to honour his work. ift.tt/2glp5Ss
