  • How to Lose 100+ Pounds and Keep it Off For Life

    They taught us that in PhysEd in school in the fifties. We would get sore and then sore again....but the break was because the muscles need healing.

  • Make A Wi-fi Webcam From An Old Android Phone

    You have a 'be nice policy', so now you also need a 'be nice to be able to edit my comment' policy so I could fix a few of my mistakes. :)

    Ref: Step 5 - You may be getting low quality because sophisticated streaming IP Cam software is usually set up to stream at a lower quality so you get motion instead of jerky still shots. The hardware usually can't handle high frame rates or high quality photos. Software engineers know that and have provide what is called a 'sub stream' for viewing the motion. A high speed internet situation and a high quality IP Cam does not usually need to use the low stream but even though your camera video is good the CPU in your phone is a different story.

    You have WiFi so you should be able to use video chat with an auto answer that many have.

    But not both.... they can't both be set up to control the camera at the same time.

    How to Make a Cryptex

    I looked at the five rows of letter strips in the photo before I typed that and saw later it had only four. The statement is correct so far as multiplying 26 X for each roll, including any stationary one if present, but you got me on a technicality. I never intended to count a fixed pointer since it has only the one choice.

    How to Make a Cryptex

    You have to count the fifth one even though it may not turn. It still counts cause it has to be used as a reference for the others.

    Anyone wondering what the odds of opening it on the first try would be? Just multiply 26 X 26 five times to find out there are about 308 million possibilities. It may look easy but it could take a person forever and a day....

  • Wireless Electricity Transmission (Simple things required to be collected from scrap)

    I was a disc jockey for 25 years back in the dark ages and used to conduct tours for groups once in a while when I was around and no on the air. I would take them thru the transmitter room where we had about a inch and a half thick coax running through a copper Frankenstein throw switch built into a wooden box. The point is we had lots and lots of RF flying around that shielded switch and I could hold up a florescent light by the middle a good four feet away and it would flicker and light up steady. Very impressive for everyone....
