Pack Your Suitcase as Efficiently as a Flight Attendant This is actually a great set of packing tips - I've been doing it unintentionally for years, especially since if you're traveling for a week or less and you're going either alone or with one person, checking luggage these days is probably a bad idea. Carry on only, baby. Snag a nicely sized (but that will still fit in the overhead without taking up the whole damned thing) bag, pack what you need in it and learn what to leave behind (and what you can easily get when you get to your destination) and you'll never pay baggage fees or have to wait at a baggage claim carousel or worry that your luggage will be lost again. Personally, I try to pack as little as possible when it comes to the bulkier, heavier things like shoes: if I can get by with the pair I'll wear on the flight only, I won't even bother packing shoes.

Top 10 Photography Hacks "Magic Lantern turns Canon DSLRs with video capabilities into near-professional video cameras." No, it does not. It's nice to have the lenses and the ability, but a single sensor Video camera is very far from a pro video camera. DSLR's are great for the slow motion no moving shots, if you need to get artsey with your 55mm prime, they are great! if you need to videotape a car race, news event, sports event, they completely suck. It's a great example of why a single sensor is not used in professional or even prosumer video cameras. Top 10 Photography Hacks
Hack Attack: Burn almost any video file to a playable DVD by Adam Pash Click to viewPutting any old video file - like the DivX/Xvid-encoded videos you've downloaded with BitTorrent - onto a DVD to play on your TV can be a daunting task.

Hack Attack: Turn your $60 router into a $600 router Of all the great DIY projects at this year's Maker Faire, the one project that really caught my eye involved converting a regular old $60 router into a powerful, highly configurable $600 router. The router has an interesting history, but all you really need to know is that the special sauce lies in embedding Linux in your router. I found this project especially attractive because: 1) It's easy, and 2) it's totally free. So when I got the chance, I dove into converting my own router. After a relatively simple firmware upgrade, you can boost your wireless signal, prioritize what programs get your precious bandwidth, and do lots of other simple or potentially much more complicated things to improve your computing experience. Today I'm going to walk you through upgrading your router's firmware to the powerful open source DD-WRT firmware. Hack Attack: Turn your $60 router into a $600 router
Use Clear Nail Polish to Keep Metal Cans from Rusting Shaving cream, cooking spray, and other products in metal cans can often rust and leave marks on your counters. You can fix this with a dab of clear nail polish. Redditor russell_m explains: Paint the bottom ring of your shaving cream cans with clear nail polish and they won't leave rust rings in your bathroom. This actually works on all sorts of things.
Swedish Fire Log In this particular case some small twigs were also added to the kindling which turned out to be a mistake as they blocked the vertical air flow needed to ensure good ignition. After a slightly discouraging start these twigs were removed from the cuts and with just bark the result was much better. The original idea behind the fire log is to create a controllable fire which can be lit on snow as the base does not heat up and can be packed into the snow to keep the log vertical. Once the fire is burning well, a billy can, kettle or skillet can be placed directly on the top for cooking or heating.
Remove LCD image burn-in My 5-year old ViewSonic monitor showed severe image persistence — especially the 1-pixel black border at the bottom of Windows software title bars. (I run all programs maximized, so that black border appears at the same spot all day long.) Worse: occasionally, power settings would fail to turn the screen off after inactivity, leaving the bar statically displayed overnight. After 5 years of this, the dim ghost of that border was a constant companion. I fixed it within days!
by Mark and Angel Self-reliance is a vital key to living a healthy, productive life. To be self-reliant one must master a basic set of skills, more or less making them a jack of all trades. Contrary to what you may have learned in school, a jack of all trades is far more equipped to deal with life than a specialized master of only one. 50 Things Everyone Should Know - StumbleUpon
