I'm making a couple of programs in Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition, however once you publish it the files are darn hard to distribute. If you move it it won't install correctly and if you ever try uploading 3 files to a webpage asking people to download all of them they're likely to just ignore you. So I would like to be able to mix all those files into one single self-contained .exe file which can be copied or moved as much as the user wants. Can I do it? All help is appreciated.

The video below was awarded Best Illusion of the Year at this year's Vision Sciences Society meeting. I originally saw this posted in Nature News: In a packed concert hall, Kokichi Sugihara wields a pickaxe and mimes a blow to the stage. "I am a miner, and I have a secret," Sugihara says, adjusting his hard hat and headlamp. "I have discovered a new super-magnet." A screen behind Sugihara begins playing a video. A cardboard structure appears, consisting of four ramps ascending to a raised platform. A hand places a wooden ball at the base of a ramp, and it rolls uphill, before stopping on the 'super-magnetized' platform. As the same trick is repeated for the other three ramps, the crowd lets out an "ooh". Thanks to Kiteman, here's the author's own Web site: http://home.mims.meiji.ac.jp/~sugihara/hobby/hobbye.html Image and video from Koichi Sugihara, Meiji University.

I live in the jungle in Thailand, in the morning the electric supply is only 145 volts till 8 am at that voltage many things do not work mainly the water system. During the day the voltage is adequate and things work, in the evening we are back to 145 ish. I want a light panel system so that my wife and I can easily see whether to use the water system or not. So red, yellow and green indicators to show red 145, yellow 170 and green 185 or round about. The display to be constant, I have Fluke meters but they all time out after a while. I can source most electronic components.

Computer modders take prizes in NVIDIA's Speak Visual Contest. The contest was open to computer modders and visual artists, but most of the winners are modders. The grand prize winner blows away the competition and deserves the powerhouse computer that its creator will get. (We met the Austin Modders at Maker Faire Austin - they had some great stuff on display.)Scroll down, all the way down, to see Instructables user whatsisface's entry that won him a couple books.UPDATE: Another Instructables user, nav.sparx, won a BFG GeForce GTX 260 OC MAXCORE graphics card.

Hello, I am currently writing a program that records the mouses position over a 256x192 px box, then spits it out every 67ms in the form of dsgamemaker xds code which can be pasted into the project code, to make a sprite move on the exact same path as the mouse moved during the recording. A problem i am having however is that the timer event i am using to move the cursor representative sprite ( which moves with the D-Pad up down left right), when i begin recording, the sprite moves very very slowly because the frame rate is so very slow. as a separate timer event from the recorder, it moves slow, but when all the code is as one entire timer, it moves at literally 3 pixels per second. however this does not affect the generated sprite cut-scene. Ive read that if i put this timer on a separate thread, that it will run independently from the other timer which will stop the lagging. but the problem is that i cannot find a single example online which shows how to do this, and the ones that do show, don't work. does someone know how i can make the timer run on a different thread? or even a different core for that matter, so it doesnt lagg? Im puzzled as to how other applications can do this, increasing a value one at a time, at such a high rate, when the timer event, will never do that. is there some other way to run looping code like a timer event? Your help would be greatly appreciated. ill post the application soon to show you exactly whats happening also im running VB 2008 express

I'm planning on developing several different USB devices that will be operated by a Visual Basic 6 program I am writing. I want to be able to identify the USB device plugged into the computer the same way a program knows when you have just plugged in a USB drive or webcam. Is there some simple cheap way that I can wire in a circuit that will pass an identification tag so my program can identify which USB device has been connected? There are certain criteria. The parts must be cheaper than a usb flash stick...otherwise I'd just disassemble a flash stick and load a program to it to automatically run telling the usb ID. I'd rather not do this simply because I'd rather not have to take apart several usb flash drives which can get expensive. This eliminates Arduo and other costly circuit boards. The parts when assembled need to be smaller than a usb flash drive. I just want to pass some ID serial number to the usb port that I can than pick up with my program so it knows that device has just been plugged in. Any suggestions?

I have an Arduino uno board, and a robot that can follow, and have obstacle avoidance. My robot is designed for a person at school who has crutches for life, and the robot follows her with her books. I want to create a program with visual studio that automatically uploads each sketch to the board, depend on which button to click on. I already have visual micro for Visual Studio 10, and when I debug it or build it, it just uploads it to the robot. I need it to be a .bat file or a .exe file. If anyone could help me with this, I will be extremely grateful. Any ideas? Below I have a screenshot of what the program plans on doing.

Hey guys, I am about to set out and create Ben Heck's A/V selector. http://www.engadget.com/2007/03/13/how-to-make-a-solid-state-a-v-switcher/ He uses a bus switch, CBT3244A, Digi-Key part # 568-3619-5-ND (out of stock I believe). While I could order a comparable bus switch, I have several lying around from hacking apart a kid's toy. 74hc374. I've looked at the datasheets and, I've never been very adept at understanding them, preferring the lazymans terms. I understand that the original chip has 2 switches (to use for two separate a/v connections, or turning both on for a connection with more pins) while the chip I have has only one switch, allowing up to 8 channels to go through. What I'm confused about is the state of the "on" switch for the one I have, or maybe the clock. From what I understand, they each need to be pulled LOW (connected to ground) in order for their respective inputs to flow through, can the clock, in my case, be ignored? For the arduino tags, I do plan to make this project remote controlled. But I'm a serious beginner in this area. Basically I plan to replicate this project for arduino. http://www.tauntek.com/tinyir2-learning-ir-remote-control-receiver.htm Would there be a point to that? Or would it be simpler to just order the chip by itself already programmed. I think that programmed tinyir2 PIC chip and arduino chips come out around the same price wise. I have the other components lying around already.
