what to do

Christmas is coming up, yay!!! On the 6th I ordered some shutter shades from My brother is a Kanye West fan. It has been over 2 weeks (almost 3 weeks on christmas) and they still havn't shown up. If they don't come, what do I tell my brother? I'm not too worried, because the thought was there, ordering something 3 weeks before christmas is good i think.

what to do with usb?

So I tried to make one of those flash drive case mods where you stick it into an enter key on a keyboard, but I found that the flash drive I used (which I'd found in a computer at my school) doesnt work. The whole thing was all sticky and stuff when I removed it from the casing, so I just threw it away. But I kept the metal USB connecor at the end. Does anyone have any ideas as to a cool project I can do with this thing? I'll post the one I do on this site.

Do Amps matter?!?

Ok, I need a charger for my motorolla two way radios. I have the dock, only need a DC power supply. on one of them it states "18Volts DC +/- 20%, 15.3 watts" .Lets say I get 18VDC 1amp power supply, that's 18W,it means it's an overkill? or 15V 2Amps? As I understand, usually amps don't matter, as the item draws as much as it needs, but since it is a charger.. Cheers for the teh help!

How to deal with spam on instructables?

Guys, if you see spam, anywhere on the site, please do not reply to it, even if you are just saying "spam". Adding comments actually slows down the removal of the spam, so just flag it and move on. If it is really offensive spam, or it needs quickly removing for some other reason, then email, or send a PM to any members of the staff or the Community Team who seem to be online at the time. If you're running on UK/Europe times, that will likely be me.

What do you do with old computer cases?

I have several old computers. I can recycle most of the disks, power supplies, floppies, motherboards, etc. But eventually, things die. This leaves me with a box. In some of the older ones this is solid steel. Others are a mix of steel and plastic. The boxes are not air tight or water tight. They have holes in odd places. It's criminal to dump them in a land fill. What do do? It would be nice to make something beautiful or useful out of them.

What do you want in an arduino?

Inspired by the Illuminato Arduino clone (can't really say clone because it's so much better!) really wants me to create my own Arduino clone. I've been thinking of making a clone for the Arduino Mega, but it'd need so feature that the original Arduino can't offer (like the boarduino is breadboard compatible, Sanguino has way more pins, Illuminato is the most beautiful PCB I've ever seen and has a lot of I/O's). So, I'm asking you guys! What features would you want in an arduino? If this "new" arduino is so much better than any other existing one I'll make kits (if the majority is through hole) for people to buy (no more than 40 dollars, probably, the 65 dollar price tag is a real turn off for the Mega) or just assembled if the majority is smd. Also instructable :P
