    Comments about oreilly Make: Technology on Your Time Volume 33:

    It's Make! I think Make is one of the greatest, if not the greatest magazine available worldwide.
    I think that this is a really cool number of Make. As it usually happens to me, the part I like the most i the "Projects part", in which I always find awesome ideas.

    The article I liked the most is "Growing the Ghost" by Gabriel Nagmay. This article speaks about the growing of the Bhut Jolokia, one of the world most powerful chili flavor. I really liked it since I really like peppers and the author gave me a lot of ideas and tips on how to feed the peppers properly.

    Another article I really enjoyed, even if I'm not interested in building it is "The Counting Box" by Nathan Pryor. I really liked how he created a such nice object with such a great User eXperience.

    I also really enjoyed the "Made on Earth" column and more specifically the "Sing with the Wind" part. I think that the artwork described in this part (the Aelus Acustic Wind Pavilion) is incredible. The artist has been able to add the audio part to the artwork. I think this is good but not amazing, by itself. The thing that makes this artwork amazing is the fact that uses NO energy at all to produce the sounds.

    I would definitely suggest this Make issue to my friends :).

    Comments about oreilly Make: Technology on Your Time Volume 33:

    I received this magazine from O'Reilly Blogger review program and it is my first time reading the Make-magazine.
    Actually only American magazines which I've read have been Scientific Americans, so the style of the magazine was a bit weird to me. I assume that the amount of adverts was normal for this kind of magazine, it was quite high when compared to amount of adverts in Finnish magazine. I was bit confused with the first advert, which was quite hard to tell apart from an article, unfortunately this kind of stuff is getting popular also in Finland.
    The magazine itself was extremely enjoyable and had lots of substance. The articles ranged from programming to making your own welding rods and how to grow peppers. There was also many interesting short reviews of tools for DIY. The magazine was extremely funny and my fiance spent a while giggling after reading the magazine and wants to buy kit for banana piano. There was projects and tips for almost any level of DIY skills.
    Only real issue with the magazine was a poor resolution on some images. But in any case I'm now tempted on buying older issues of the magazine :)
