Deleted messages?

How come when I delete a message (for instance, just to clean up my orangeboard area) it doesn't actually delete the comment- instead it just hides the comment behind something that says it's been deleted, but it's still there cluttering up my orangeboard? This also seems to happen in the instructables themselves. If I make an error in a comment, delete it and then re-write it correctly - there I am with my message, and another one below it saying it's been deleted or removed etc. Why don't these things just go away when we delete them?

A .psd error message?

I have a .psd file that is getting this error message "Could not complete your request because it is not a valid Photoshop document." This is the first time this has happened on my Ps, CS6...and I've looked elsewhere to get some help. And I was just working on this file a while ago, so I'm not sure what went wrong. It is located on one of my USB Flash Drives, and I have heard that certain USBs tend to cause these things....yet this is the first its happened. How to do recovery for photoshop?

A message to iRobot contestants

Well..the deadline is coming soon. I know I had a lot of fun building my robot, and i'm sure you had fun too. I know i've got some really tough competition out there, and I just wanted to wish you all luck. Even if I don't win at all I know that I'll be walking away with a lot learned (and a create =] ). I think each of the projects entered in this contest really do deserve a prize.Micah

Arduino messaging system

Hi everybody, Not long ago I had an idea about a messaging system based on a simple client-server architecture. Nothing new so far, but my idea was to optimize any exchanged message or sentence for a 4x20 LCD display, so that an arduino client could be easily coded. In fact, I liked the idea so much, that I already wrote a server prototype, as well as the arduino client. I gave this project the name "C0ldWater". The client is based on an arduino board, which uses an ethernet shield for internet connectivity, a 4x20 lines LCD display as an output device and a ps/2 keyboard for user input. I also bought a VPS, on which I run the server and a blog. You can reach it at and you will find all information and instructions to build such a device, as well as all code to be downloaded. So why am I posting here? Easy question, so here's my easy answer: because I already went through a first sort of alpha testing on my own, but I still need some help from anyone who's interested in this project, to get some feedback about his/her personal user experience in order to understand what sort of modifications I eventually need to implement. Nothing difficult or boring, just connect to the service and use it as a normal user: register, read, send, forward, delete or list messages and so on. I'd like to receive any suggestion, criticism or just your first impressions about the project. For those interested, but without the required hardware, I also wrote a simple linux client that can be downloaded from my site. It just creates two threads, one for receiving and one for sending data. Anyway, if you're still stacked with the win OS, you can download "netcat" and use that to connect to c0ldwater: "nc c0ldwater 8889" or "nc 8889". Thanks in advance to all of you! Cheers

CorelDraw 9 Error message? Answered

I'm working with CorelDraw 9. I've been working on something for two months, it is 987Kb. Just when I was finishing the project, the file became corrupt. It upens up to 40% and then I receive the message "Error Reading myfile.cdr file". I tried importing it to a new cdr, it gets 74% done and then gives me the error message. When I click on accept, I receive an error message that says that it cannot import an empty document. I can see it in the preview box, though. I need a Corel programmer that could maybe open the file code and repair the problem. Can you help me?

How would you make a direct link from a phone to an iPod through the TRS jacks to record ringtones? Answered

Hello! This is my first post on this site so I hope it will be a good one! I have both a Samsung Messager and an iPod Touch 4th Gen (I'm not too sure if versions matter in this or not). The phone has a 3.5 mm TRS headphone jack with both three and four conductor capabilities and my iPod has the same. Now, this is the conundrum I am in: My phone has the capabilities to record sound one of two ways, through the built in mic or through the headset (which also has a mic). However, when I do the recording sounds garbled, static-like, and all around horrible. Would there be a way to make a direct link from my iPod to my phone through the TRS jacks? I was thinking that if I did this then the digital sound quality would be much better. Then I could play my iPod, turn on the recording feature on my phone, and easily record the songs as they play. Then I could use those recordings as ringtones. If at all possible I would not like to take apart my phone or iPod but I don't care about the headsets, I have plenty. I have experience in soldering and a bit in cicuitry. Thanks in advance!
