Top 10 Things You Can Upgrade with a Little Electronics Hacking it is a skill to do a good solder joint, it comes with LOTS of practice. so most people who rarely do it will ever get good at it. Bingo. Of course, part of the issue is having a soldering iron at the right temp with a properly tinned tip. Newbies aren't using soldering stations but a cheap iron they got at rat shack (You have questions? We have deer-in-the-headlights... erm... answers!). I don't expect to ever master tricky stuff like smts or even multilayer pcbs so I'm not much better then a newbie, anyway - and I totally suck at sweating pipe joints. Ah, well... SMT is actually a bit better than through-hole once you get the hang of it.

History of Potter Art Metal Studios Potter Art Metal Studios... a look back in no particular order. Local Talent Wrought with possibilities by Rita Cook (social contributor) Polish-American metal artist and designer Izabela Wojcik, 31, says she finds inspiration for her work just about anywhere. Wojcik works for Potter Art Metal Studios in Dallas, designing custom pieces such as chandeliers, gazebos and even staircases, and doing everything except twisting the metal. "I don't specifically do the metal work, because I would break my arms doing what the guys do here," she says. She has cultivated her knowledge of metals, taking into consideration not only the beauty of a piece, but also its functionality. She starts with paper and pencil and sometimes uses a computer. The Potter studios did the metalwork on many historic homes in the Lakewood neighborhood, as well as light fixtures at Fair Park and White Rock Lake, among other Dallas landmarks. She's currently working on a pine-tree interior railing to be made from wrought iron.
DIY Your Own Voice Controlled Lights Two quick things: There is a thriving knockoff market for Arduino boards and shields on eBay (a nano clone is less than $10) and many are pretty good quality. For a lot of my single purpose projects, I've started using Arduinos to program ATTiny chips rather than dedicating a dev board - works for more projects that I expected and the dedicated cost is ~$2 for the chip + whatever components you need. A single AVR shield can be used as a central command and could communicate to your projects all over the house, (you'd probably need zigbee or some form of network access on your projects). I haven't messed with the AVR, but I'd bet you could rig multiple inputs from all over the house and it'd serve as part of the master brain. those are great tips! Yes, many of the clones are close to 100% compatible with the brand name Arduinos although they often don't have as robust voltage regulators. Here's the page on programming ATTiny's with an arduino:
Netflix Secret Codes Search One of the biggest Netflix complaints is that you spend more time browsing than you do watching. Netflix curates its homepage based on your preference but sometimes you just want to dive into a movie genre of your own accord. Below, we’ve got the Netflix ID Bible where we list all of the Netflix category codes or as they’re sometimes referred to, the Netflix secret codes! How this works is you grab the URL from the Netflix search page: The new URL for Netflix Genres is Simply insert the number of the specific category you want to view.

Refinish Hardwood Floors in One Day Step 1: Buy special refinishing kit 1 of 1 Refinishing kit and other tools Restore your floor with a recoating kit and the other items shown above. The total bill for this project is about $100. If the finish on your wood floor is worn and lightly scratched, you can make it look like new without the labor, mess and expense of sanding off the finish. Professional floor refinishers have used this “chemical etching” process for years, and now there's a system designed for the floor-finishing novice. Is This System Right for Your Floor? This process will make some floors look absolutely perfect. Normal wear and shallow scratches in the finish only (not the wood) are no problem; they'll disappear under the new coat of finish. Step 2: Clear the floor and clean the room 1 of 2 Photo 1: Clean the floor Clear the floor of furniture and clean the room thoroughly to minimize dust. 2 of 2 Photo 2: Prep the room Plug heating ducts with old towels, close windows and turn off fans to limit dust. 1 of 3 2 of 3
Build Your Own Electronically Powered Self-Watering Plant System For those that want an off-the-shelf option I bought one of these and I love it for the most part: The reservoir is 6.6 gal so it is huge which is a good and bad thing. Also it is gravity based so somehow you have to manage to lift the 6.6 gal box above all your plants. I ended up using a wood TV tray on top of my plant table and it worked great. Might seem like a lot of negatives, but this has saved me so much time since I bought it about 6 months ago before a 2 week vacation.
Free, Cheap, and Affordable Travel Resources Affordable Travel Everyone should be able to travel. We don’t all have budgets for an around-the-world ticket, or 4 months in Japan, but if you’re willing to sacrifice immediacy, you can still experience great adventures. All you need is time, and if you’re not making any of that, that’s really nobody’s problem but your own. The internet caters beautifully to this idea, providing us with avenues to connect with our peers, share knowledge and rooms, cars and workspaces. Below I’ve outlined some of my personal go-to services for affordable accommodation and transportation. • Secret Flying can find you a $200 ticket out of the country (almost any country). • With HitchPlanet, you can get across the country (Canada or USA) for around $200. Free Travel Now, anyone truly can travel, regardless of budget. This category requires a few more sacrifices, but if you want to travel, and you can find the time, you really can do it for free.

Canada Tax GST HST PST Canadian Duty Custom Import Fees When you are in Canada, and buy from USA, such as here on ebay.com, and have a purchased item to ship to Canada, you may incur additional charges specific to your Province. Not all items will have duty, taxes, and fees applied. In fact, some items may not be charged at all regardless of value. But you could be charged, and the amount is not always known in advance. If you have received a notice of a charge, or have been charged, and you disagree with the charges you have options after delivery. The most important thing to remember is that an eBay seller does not know if you will be charge, or how much.

Hack Your Door to Lock and Unlock via Text Message @hahn: I don't know about all that. With the right safeguards in place, I think this would be secure enough for my tastes: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Believe it or not, I'd feel a bit more secure with this system (with some tweaks) than a traditional lock-and-key system for the same reason I feel better about having extraneous cards in my wallet: If my phone (or overstuffed wallet) is missing, I'm going to know it.
