Hello Mad Scientist,

I hope my project is one that interests you. Please have a look and tell me if you can do it or tell me (with details and pics would be wonderful) how to do it. I have been trying to figure it out for a while, but unsuccessfully.

Also, I have question for you. I have an old Audiovox 8200 cell phone, that operates on cdma, and in Canada, we are no longer able to use these phones with Telus. However, is there a way I can use this little phone as a backup to my regular cell phone? I want to use is as like a headset that you plug into your phone would work; so that I can answer calls on this little phone when I am working outside, etc. so as not to lose or ruin my good cell phone. I tried adapting a micro usb cable to have a microphone speaker headset 3.5mm jack adapter at one end and the micro phone adapter at the other, but it did not work. If this is even remotely possible, I would love it to be Bluetooth even.

Well, I look forward to any kind of response you can give me.

Hope you have a great and interesting day,

an oragami flower to offer to nice people. might wind up making them all day.

Since I learned about the Gray-Hoverman antenna and some "fractal" versions I've wondered if an old pen plotter could be finagled to use a conductive pen and then draw antennas on paper or vinyl.

I need a Telephone Incoming Call Sorter (T.I.C.S.) circuit to send unwanted calls into a 'trash can': ALL 900 numbers, "unknown name-unknown number" or otherwise unidentified numbers, plus any numbers I send into this trash can's database. The numbers sent there get the "Dee-Do-DEE; We're sorry, this is no longer a working number" message. (that's available off the internet, plus it tells the robo-dialers to skip this number for a year or so.). Stage 2 is like a standard digital message recorder so I can listen to them later to return the call or send it to the 'Trash Can'. Stage 3 is for friends and family, and is the 1st time my home phone actually rings. If a gadget like this is out there on the 'net, I haven't found it. It'd be SO good to have my phone back.

how about a red hood helmet?

I was wondering and I am not sure if I am asking this question in the right place or not If you could maybe show us how to make the Brotherhood of Steel power armor from Fallout 3. I have been looking for blueprints and videos on how to do it but I just can't seem to find anything I have no idea if i am looking in the wrong places or not would be much appreciated if you could concider it or direct me to a place that has done it all ready thanks.

Sorry for the previous misunderstanding.
A nice Instructable about a highly precise, digital temp measuring system with a range of -100 to +1100°C would be nice to have :)
Maybe even with replaceable sensors to give more accuracy in different temp ranges.

Thanks for the idea, Downunder35m. Will consider making that.

I'm not talking about ideas for the website, I'm talking about ideas for creating an Instructable. Thanks anyway!
