I like to joke that the two things that will survive a nuclear apocalypse are cockroaches and Cher. I might have to add the Lincoln MKT to that list, too.Despite being technically replaced by the upcoming Lincoln Aviator, the Lincoln MKT will continue to live in the near-term, Automotive News reports, citing an interview with Robert Parker, Lincoln's marketing manager. The MKT will be used for fleet sales -- think livery vehicles, rentals, that sort of thing.So why wouldn't Lincoln be keen to get its flashy new SUV in as many places as possible, as quickly as possible?

Cheap single board computers can be bought at any neighborhood RadioShack or Maplin. 3D printers sell fully assembled and ready to run for less than $200. Even the humble CNC mill has come down the price curve, though as you might expect at the low end things can get pretty rough. Like a cheap 3D printer, a cheap mill tends to be missing some basic features you’d expect any reasonable machine to have. If you get your hands on one of these little wonders, [Shahada Abubakar] has a pair of great blog posts on the basic set of upgrades you’ll probably want to perform right out of the box.
