Knex Gun Force Standard

The problem is that almost no one has enough room inside to shoot a knex gun unless it's a total peice of ....you get the point. But, by going outside there are many other vaiables that effect how far a gun can shoot (eg. Wind direction/ speed, trees and other obstruction, etc.) Also power as in "can shoot through can" or "through 3 sheets of hard cardboard" can also be misconstrude in the way that range from the can is a main factor, point blank range is not always the most powerful range, often 1-3 inches away has exponentially higher power. What needs to happen is a tool be built (out of K'nex, what else?) that is not only easy to use but impossible to mess up, it should be able to give 100% accurate reading for all types of guns from the weakest to the most powerful. Also in terms of different types of ammo, rod size shouldn't matter( thats what she said) the only thing that should matter in terms of ammo is whether it is deer slug, rod, sligshot/ catapult rod(a rod with something the can grab the elastic), or other and specify what that is.Range is all to often streched beyond reality by saying it can shoot 200 yards, when really it might be able to shoot 50 yards tops when pointed strait but 200 yards if it is pointed strait at the sky. We need to bulid a target that you shoot from maybe 5 feet away and something mesures force, be it cardboard, or cans, or plywood, maybe even something that leaves a dent in it and you can mesure the depth of the dent to tell you how much force (eg. 1/2"=1, 1"=2, 1 1/2"=3, etc.)Also one last idea if you would prefer to stick to range outside, is that you divide the range in feet, by the number of cardboard sheets(or other medium)the gun can shoot trough at point blank range (say it shoots 63 feet, and through 4 sheets of thick, corrugated cardboard the equation would be F= 63/4= 15.75, so your force rating would be 15.75)These are only some ideas to get all of you thinking about a standard in K'nex gun power.-TheXenk

Computer not playing sound? Answered

Whenever I play music out of my computer, a thing keeps popping up called Realtek HD Manager saying that I've plugged something into the microphone socket! I've checked both of them (Front and back) and nothing is in them! So I disabled by going: Start > Run > 'msconfing' > Startup, then disabling it. It told me to restart my computer for the changes to work, and when I booted it up again it had no sound, so I turned it back on and rebooted the computer and it still dosen't work! And yes, I have checked all the obvious things like if the sound's muted. Thansk, Flannel UK

Negative Ion Generators

I've been reading up on negative ion generators, and I was going to get one (they're only 12.95), but I was skeptical on safety. 15kv (!) going through my body does NOT sound safe. Yeah, it's probably low current, but 15kv...is alot. How is it on pain? Could it...kill me? I don't know about you, but I only have one life, and its goin good right now, so I don't really want to get rid of it.Does anyone have experience ith these? Yes, I know about the one instructable about rigging it with your doorbell,, but even they mentioned -and I quote- "...a pretty nasty shock...", so what exactly am I dealing with? ...be specific...be specific...Oh, and I was thinking of the 12vdc one. Also, will it jump (the spark), to ANY grounded metal thing?

Forum Help

I have joined several forums recently, and was wondering about the "tricks of the trade". How do I upload pictures? Videos? How about links? And what about quoting people? How does that work? Bold, italicized, and underlined words? I'd appreciate it if anyone could help.

Filter OUT a keyword

Ok, I know you can limit your viewing to a particular keyword, but how would you go about filtering out that keyword? For instance, I don't get the whole knex obsession around here, I don't own any knex, and I never intend to... so I don't want to dig through 40 guns, knives, swords, cellphone holders, etc. just to find something interesting.

And saw this kool samsung 256gb solid state drive, its suppost to be the smallest, fastest, and largest space SSD, thats pretty kool, but, $4k is a little steep for me. especially if it costs more than 2 of my new laptops.
