I was wondering if anyone knew of a homebrew app that could sort music by artist, album, genre, etc. like an ipod can. I can't find it on my own.

Hi, I saw instructions about homebrewing in a book i downloaded and have now lost. The picture shows the essence of it. Is this safe? would it actually concentrate the alcohol? the idea is to keep topping up the mash with sugar and water, using high alcohol tolerance yeast. would distilling the product of this make a safe product? thanks.

Hello all, I am sure this is a silly question for the experienced, but seeing as I'm just starting to really get into this stuff, any help would be appreciated. I am writing to get a bit of consensus to assure myself the a ATX power supply will convert AC power in to DC power out. I would like to save myself the hassle of taking apart a computer if this is not the case. In the event I'm wrong, what does convert AC to DC power? Just to give you an idea of what I need this for, this power supply will be used to run the electrolytic etching process for use with copper in a copper sulfate bath. I'll be using the etch process to etch through copper plates (saves a lot of money compared to ferric chloride) The last question I had is if anyone knows how to discharge any residual energy within the ATX system. I have an instructable on converting the ATX into a power supply, but I feel like I read the residual power in the system can be quite nasty if it shocks you, so I'd like to avoid that. In fact, any suggestions would be welcomed. Thanks! Andrew

I have a wii and I have installed the homebrew channel. I have formatted my USB drive to FAT32 and have use the USB loader to rip my games and play them. I want to use the USB drive to load the "USB Loader" either through homebrew channel or preferably through a channel forwarder. This last part, I have not been able to accomplish. I get errors when I actually load the games this way and the games fail. Please help. I can give more info if you need it.

Short's Brewery has a Peanut Butter and Jelly Beer. My favorite sandwich of all time is the PB&J. And, why not? Beer = Liquid Bread. I'm thinking of making my own. I've been homebrewing for about 5 years now, thanks to this instructable: https://www.instructables.com/id/Make-Beer/ (check it out). Maybe an American Rye with peanut powder and some sort of fruit added. Blackberry? Strawberry? Thoughts? Suggestions? Does this make you say "mmmm" or "blegh!!!"? P.S. Yes, I know Peanut Butter and Jelly is an American idea. Marmite Beer is not appealing to me in the slightest.

I bought a March 809-02 pump on eBay and sadly didn't pay attention to the voltage for it.I got it to transfer hot water in my brewing projects. I have basic skills but I want to be safe about it. If this is a thing best left to a truly qualified electrician, I will do so. Thanks in advance.Sean

Ok, so I have decided to make an EPROM programmer so I can upload NES games to cartridges ( home-brew, not pirated. ) Does anyone know how to do this? I am a novice at coding, and, when it comes down to wiring, I can't really discern which resistor goes here and there and what value it should be, things like that. When I google "arduino eprom writer" All I get is EEPROM writers. I just want to know if someone on instructables has done it, and how.

Hey guys(and maybe girls), i just hacked my brothers psp slim. Now i am used to the phat pap where you install the 1.50 subset to get homebrew to work, but that said only for fat psp. Only some homebrew works on the slim psp, but has major issues. for instance psp revolution has no sound anywhere, and none of the bottom buttons work. I have tried both the 5.00 and 1.50 kernels in the recovery menu. Is there some patch, or homebrew launcher that i dont know about?? should i install the 1.50 kernel addon anyway? firmware is 5.00 M33-6

I've been brewing mead at home for a couple of months now. I started a 1 gallon batch of mint and honey mead about an hour ago and there is no activity going on in it. The yeast looks like it is swimming around but there is no carbonation bubbling to the top. I used dry active yeast which is what I've used for other batches over the past months. Q1: Should I wait until tomorrow and check it? Q2: Should I add another pack of yeast to it? Q3: Referring to Q2, will adding any more yeast to it cause a yeasty brew in the final product?

Hello, So recently I've been really into the whole wii softmodding idea. What I want to do is install the backup channel and I have no idea what needs to be done prior to ensure this goes smoothly. I have system menu 4.2 and installing the homebrew channel wont be a problem. I know I need something called the "truncha bug" to install CIOS but thats all I know. All help is welcome Thanks :)

I was wondering if it would be possible to mod an N64 cartridge to remove the default internal memory for it and allow like an SD card or some other flash drive and be able to run homebrew games and backups... I enjoy playing the N64, i own tons of games for it but it just gets in the way lol I want to be able to backup all my games and consolidate them into a single cartridge if its possible Thanks

I make beer. I make compost. I would like to use the former, to assist the latter. However, as most home-brewers already know, hops are very dangerous to dogs. This made me wonder: If I use the wort that I strain out of my homemade beer, will the hops in the gooey mess still be dangerous to my dogs if they get into the compost days/weeks/months later?

Okay.... So, a couple of days ago, my friend was running around and ran through the cable for my Gamecube controller connected to my Wii, the Wii fell a good 3 feet (just an estimate). And now the Eject Disk Button is jammed a little and every once in a while the Wii completely shuts it self off. Not like pressing the off button, but like pulling the power plug. I can't send it to Nintendo because I have homebrew on it and I don't want to lose it. What can I do?

Among microscopy amateurs there is a long established tradition of grinding lenses and making their own microscopes. ( Antonie van Leeuwenhoek, who is known as the "Father of Microbiology", was a linen-draper by trade with no formal scientific education, yet his skill at making microscopes and his observations won him international recognition.) When it comes to non optical microscopy (electron and scanning probe) the idea of making your own microscope at home is more intimidating. Mostly because of the cost and difficulty of getting parts you'll need. But it seems that this man, John D. Alexander from Gilbert, AZ, found a clever way to build a scanning tunneling microscope using cheap and commonly available parts. Have a look at his site www.geocities.com/spm_stm/Project.html Very interesting. If someone of you will try to build his own microscope, let us know.

MaKey MaKey is an electronic inventor's kit (simple closed connections via USB + music program + fruit = banana piano). More here: http://www.makeymakey.com One problem I've been running into is that it is an additional challenge to rotate quickly between more than one project per MaKey MaKey. The MaKey MaKey has 12 signal pins (female) on the back, pins for ground and 5v outputs, and six pair of alligator clip holes on the board. I've got some ideas on how to make quick connects so that I can freely travel between projects using just a system of male/female connections, where the MaKey MaKey has one type and my projects have the other. Included are some images to get ideas sparking around. If you can post a project detailing one method of a unique quick connect system for MaKey MaKey before the end of February, you're entered. I'll hand out one year of Pro for first place and one 3 month of Pro for second place. I'll choose the winners, but will pay attention to any community feedback. Points don't matter, so points arbitrarily awarded for thriftiness and resourcefulness, creative flair, quality of documentation, and use of MaKey MaKey header pins and other connections. 1st place: 1 year of Pro 2nd place: 3 months of Pro Bonus points for tutorials with resource files and specs that are easily interchangeable between tools, materials, and methods of tech/crafting. Useful formats can include SVG, STL, and others. Here's a couple of projects we got featured that could have really used a quick connect system going on using our laser cutter: Hydrophobic Drum Pad (homepaged, generated 1st place prize for this contest) Music Box (featured, generated 2nd place prize for this contest)

Hi everyone! I have some EEPROMS I would like to burn (27C512, 27C256, 24C256). I have a Parallax Propeller, a Z80, a 6502, and an Arduino Uno to help me make an EEPROM burner. I know that EEPROM burners run $40+ commercially (even on EBAY!), so I would like to try building my own at home. I have an abundant supply of 74XXXX chips at home, as well as a good supply of capacitors and resistors. I don't have a Parallel Port on my computer, but I have a USB port as well as an RS232 to USB converter. I'm running Windows XP and Ubuntu - Lucid Lynx 10.04, so if I need a specific OS to burn these EEPROMS, I have Windows and Linux. I need an EEPROM burner that could erase/burn the 27CXXX EEPROMS/EPROMS/PROMS. I know through using the Propeller that I can write to the 24C256 through the Propeller, but could someone please help me in building a homebrew EEPROM burner?
