End Zone card game (a great card game I made up)

END ZONE The Card Game End Zone is a fun card game using strategy while choosing a way to win. Here's one of the most interesting facts about End Zone: Only one deck is needed to play. Each deck must have exactly 100 cards. At the bottom is the Blackout card, or End Zone card. The blackout card has no picture. Each deck must have one blackout card. Each blackout card is placed at the bottom of the deck and must be shown to each player before being placed there. The whole point of the game is to get your opponent to draw the blackout card. But there is a catch. At no time can you look through the deck to see where the blackout card is. Any cards that were played are sent to the bottom of the deck at the end of the controller's turn unless stated otherwise. This is where strategy comes in. You will have to remember how many cards were already played in order to make an accurate guess where the blackout card is. Here are the basic steps to playing. 1.Each player draws three cards a the beginning of the game. Because there is only one deck, you would have to synchronize between draws meaning that you would draw a card, then your opponent would draw a card, then you would draw your second card, and so on. This only makes it fair. When it is your turn: 1.Draw one cards. 2.You must play one card. You are allowed to activate a card during the first turn. 3.Discard two cards `to the bottom of the deck. 4.End turn. When it is your opponents turn: 1.Opponent draws two cards. 2.If you have a card that has a lightning bolt in the top corner, you can play it after your opponent draws. 3.Opponent makes move. Once again, cards with a lightning bolt can be played. 4.Opponent discards two cards. 5.Opponent ends turn.

How do I bypass a card-reader type security system?

I'm trying to find a way to bypass the security system in my building, a simple card-reader setup. Really more a prank than not.  My boss has been watching my card and logging the times it's accessed, I want to show him that he can't trust the card.  Nothing nefarious, just proof that I can be around and not have to access my card.  If it helps, the security company is Datawatch.

Is a NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GSO Video Card compatible with a ATI Radeon X1200 graphic adaptor?

I purchased the NVIDIA card and installed it and the setup wizard is telling me that my graphic adaptor is incompatible and will not install the software. I tried downloading the NVIDIA Driver 182.08 from www.NVIDIA.com but that will not get past the setup either. It says that it cant locate any drivers that are compatible with my hardware. What can i do to make it work? Or did i just waste $130 on a Video Card that wont work with my PC?

The video card in my Toshiba laptop died. If I can get another one, what are the odds I can install it myself?

Toshiba Tecra, in use about six months when the picture went.  I've been told putting a new piece on a laptop motherboard is next to impossible, but I've fixed a lot of things that couldn't be fixed, so I'm skeptical.  It's been in pieces in my den for 3 or 4 years.  Is there a workaround for video output, like use the card from another machine?

Replace sounds on greeting card sound module

Hello, I recently purchased this item from ebay. It's a "30s Light Sensor Record Device Module Music Box Sound Chip For Greeting Card" It comes with a pre-recorded happy birthday song. Now I want to change that song and I am pretty sure it can be done somehow, because I can see some connections available, except I am not sure what they mean and how to use them. The seller responded that there is no documentation and if I want certain sounds I have to send them the files and they will record them for me before shipping... which is ridiculous... I want to be able to change the songs when I please. The connections marked on the board say: TG1 TG2 TG3 GND VDD PW1 and PW2 Any suggestion could help.

Thank you 4 the Halloween Greeting Card!

Hi all! I want to end my procastination of thanking you for the unexpected Halloween Greeting Card that arrived some days before Halloween. I am having a very busy schedule, so I only remember that I should publish something the day that I return for a while to the site. But, I know that for many people, receiving this greeting card is going to encourage them a lot to collaborate with the site. And even to post an instructable. Since, the card reminds you that you are important, and that there is a community that cares for you. I appreciate the good work that this administration is doing. How could someone achieve this level of contience? Is there an instructable to learn how to get there? Thank you, very much! (And sorry for the delay, but the greeting card arrived on time, even to this country, Argentina, in South America) Alberto love

Did everyone else earn an Instructables Halloween card? Answered

I got a vague and generic email saying I have earned a Halloween card from Instructables. Then it asked for my name and mailing address. It this some sort of marketing gimmick so that Instructables can sell my information to a bunch of scam artists and the publisher's clearing house? Or is Instructables secretly working with the FBI to turn in people who have submitted Instructables that adversely affect the economy and/or domestic security? Or am I just really paranoid? Cuz I really think I earned a Halloween card. :)

Can I tweak, jimmy, hack or reconfigure my Echo Indigo sound card to sound better than it does now?

but I don't know if I'm getting to use all of it's potential. Is there any way to reconfigure, hack, or tweak this thing for my laptop? I mean I thought, from all the good reviews I read, that I'd have the epitome of good, strong bassy sound, but the sound I get is actually weaker than the DFX plugin I installed months after, at one quarter of the price! How do I use all this card's features to their fullest extent? I mean, I listen to a lot of Lounge, downtempo and drum/bass on an XP, so maybe I'm expecting too much, from this laptop card, I don't know. So, please if there's a way to use this thing to full capacity, either by adjusting something on the card or my laptop, let me know! Thanks, Carlton

a laptop sound card upgrade? Answered

Hear me out before you think about commenting. Ive got my LG R405 here, and i really like it, i added line out to it and use my sub with it. its all good, but some songs (whether the sub is plugged in or not) make my sound card cut out. (IE it'll make some white noise then stop producing sound) i have to skip the song before my sound will come back online. I was wondering what could i do to fix this? im guessing its something with the capacitors, being SMD caps, they might not be able to let the sound control chip handle the big changes in sound frequencies or something, im not too sure. dont try and tell me its impossible to resolve this issue. it is not a software problem, it is a hardware problem. i need to upgrade something, be it the capacitors, or maybe the amount of current supplied to the sound driver chip. if its capacitors, where should i be upgrading them? on the outputs or the input voltage?
