More Images not showing in edited instructable on Chrome

I have edited an existing instructable have uploaded extra images to step 7. The first 3 images show OK and there is an icon labeled "8 more images"when I click on it the wait symbol appears and the images never load.This seems to be a problem on my Chrome browser.Other browsers show the images but won't display them in the slideshow. The only one that seems to work on all parts is MS Edge.If you go to step 5 which has existing images and click on the icon for 6 more images they all load.

How can i make a 5 watt adapter from 120v AC power switch.

I'm making a fixture for a tablet and I want to make a charging adapter that I can attach to the (hot/neutral) screws on the back of a receptacle that will have a USB Mini-b (5-pin) on the other end. What do I need to go between the two? I've thought about breaking a wall wart apart and modifying it, but would rather learn to make one. Thanks! -John

How to switch 12VDC 1.5 amps and 0.3 amps

Hi :)I have to switch some fans on and off electrically but I don't really know how to do it.. I wanted to use MOSFET but is it a good idea ? If yes, which models ? I already worked with relays but it seems to be an "overkilled" solution for this application :p As writen in the title, one will be used with 1.5amps and the other with 0.3amps (12VDC both).Thanks :)

There is no way to submit such a question other than as a general forum topic mixed in with everything else.3. There is no way to separate "answered" topics from others,4. Everything is sorted by recent - If I want to see if my "topic" was answered I have to scroll through many many topics to find it.5. although there is a small box above to identify this as a question - Not many will see it, what does it do, in principle it looks useful.

Can an old smartphone be repurposed?

Hello and my heartiest greetings to all reading this,I have this old Nokia Lumia 540 and was wondering whether I could replace the OS with something like the Raspbian to use it with python and utilize all the cool stuff already there in the phone. Is that sort of thing possible?I am totally new to this stuff and hence have no idea about any of it. Please help me out.Cheers. :)
