This expansion of the Fastcase HeinOnline partnership that was announced last year brings secondary legal materials to researchers using Fastcase’s primary materials. Fastcase will offer its subscribers with suggested results from HeinOnline resources that compliment the primary resources found. Researchers need a separate subscription to HeinOnline to view the HO articles.

Overall this service will be a boon for Fastcase subscribers and make the service more valuable to legal researchers both in practice and in academia.

EpicEditor Is An Embedded Markdown Eidotr in JavaScript

EpicEditor is an embeddable JavaScript Markdown editor with split fullscreen editing, live previewing, automatic draft saving, offline support, and more. For developers, it offers a robust API, can be easily themed, and allows you to swap out the bundled Markdown parser with anything you throw at it.

via EpicEditor – An embeddable JavaScript Markdown editor.

A nice editor that you can embed in your project. Out of the box it supports Markdown but it is extensible so you can add or create parsers for other formats. It’s an open source project you can fork on Github.

Yes, Markdown is pretty neat but for academic and legal writing it lacks features like footnotes or endnotes. AsciiDoc is a better choice.Powered by Hackadelic Sliding Notes 1.6.5

Turn Your Raspberry Pi Into An FM Radio Transmitter

This simple hack turns your Raspberry Pi into a powerful FM transmitter! It has enough range to cover your home, DIY drive-in movie, a high school ball game, or even a bike parade (depending on the stragglers).
PiFM software not only boldly enhances the capability of your Pi, but does so with nothing more than a single length of wire. This hack starts with the absolute minimum you need to run a Raspberry Pi — an SD card, a power source, and the board itself — and adds one piece of wire. It’s the coolest Pi device we’ve ever seen with so few materials.

This looks like something interesting to try. Please note that running an unlicensed FM transmitter over a certain power level is against the law.

Yes, this is my law degree talking. The FCC has a nice page on low power radio stations that you may want to take a look at.Powered by Hackadelic Sliding Notes 1.6.5
