If i am a teacher can i get a free pro account -- jakes1999
Question by jakes1999 | last reply
OK, I am in the market for my first laptop. My family has been on a Gateway running Windows XP Home Edition since 2002. I have two siblings and a mother who is a pre-k teacher (uses this computer 24/7 for lesson plans). I hardly get anytime on this thing. I am looking at a 15" MacBook Pro. I am very cautious with my money and with college around the corner, I want a computer that will last. If anyone who happens to own one could tell me the pros and cons of the unit it would be greatly appreciated. Another question: does anyone know anything about an early 2010 MacBook Pro release? If so would waiting for the next update be worth the wait?

Hi. I currently have pro mambership but it will run out in July. Someone else is going to be buying me a pro membership in a couple of days. Will the one he is buying me automatically take over or do I have to activate it manually when my current one runs out. Also does my autorenew setting have anything to do with it. If I have to activate it manually when mine runs out is there any way of making sure it is legit before I activate it. Any explanation would be apreciated. Thanks

Hello everyone, I am in the market for my first laptop. Ive been researching for about two years now and Im ready to make a purchase. My research has lead me to the 15" MacBook Pro. I am very cautious with my money and I want to make sure my hard earned money goes into a good investment. I really like it just from looking at it online. Im a pretty hardcore computer nerd and have taken up the title of the IT manager of my house. I need a good computer. From the few people ive talked to Ive only heard good things about the unit. Is there anyone out there, who owns one, tell me its Pros and Cons? It would be greatly appreciated!

Also are there any alternative methods of payment besides PayPal? I know some people have been sending checks directly to Instructables. I just want to know if those are my only options.

I recently won a years free membership and I activated it, and came back 8 hours later. Has the instructables layout changed naturally or is it different for pros? The new tabs are labelled; Create, explore, contests and more. Can you help?

I am getting an old macbook pro in the mail soon and am going to have to pretty much tear it down completely to repair it. I have seen a few guides on anodizing aluminum, and was wondering if maybe, possibly I would be able to anodize my macbook to a different color! Would this require de-anodizing the aluminum? (the model is a late 08 macbook, so I dont know if that is a powder coated one). It would be awesome If I could color it a nice matte black (my preferred color) Has anyone attempted doing something like this before? I have some scrap brushed aluminum to practice on.. would that work? I know this could be easily accomplished with a black case... but I kind of want to go a bit further than that...

Hello! Right now the best practice to hunt pokemon is to just walk and if the phone vibrates, you look. Thant means you have to hold the phone in hand. I had an idea for a DIY, but no way to execute it. Idea is simple: -motor vibrator from old phone -Arduino -BT module -battery Turn all above into a braclet for your hand I owuld need an app or something that, whenever phone vibrates, it would send a command over bluetooth to arduino to vibrate. It would need to check for phone vibrate command as the app doesnt give a notification or annything. Is the ambition too high ? Is this harder to execute than i tought ?

I have a problem and the people on Instructables are so smart I am hoping someone can advise me. A year ago I used my Macbook Pro in my kitchen and happened to leave it on the kitchen table over night. I never did this before. We had a huge storm that night and my roof leaked. I had it repaired following Hurricane Ike and it had been fine but then something happened (I got it fixed - kind of like locking the gate after the cows get out) and that one night was the only time I ever left my computer there or had a roof leak that was pretty bad and covered my entire table with water. When I saw my table and computer I thought I would fall out! I picked up the computer and water ran out of it! I didn't know then to take the battery out and let it dry out completely and I don't know if it would have worked anyway. I whined for a day or two and then bought a new Macbook Pro. Now I can get it to power up and it seems like it is working but there is no display. First I wonder is there a way to get that computer to work again.....Second - Is there a way to recover my videos and pictures even if that computer never works again so I can have the pictures of my best friend who recently passed away and have the pictures and videos of the wildlife I love to photograph? I am a principal so I take a lot of pictures and videos at school and make videos for students and staff. Previously I was the assistant principal and my best friend was my principal and I have a lot of video and pictures of all the fun stuff we used to do just on off time or at school. My best friend and principal ended up with a brain tumor and passed away a few months ago. She was young and vibrant and larger than life. The staff I inherited from her would love to see some of our videos and pictures from the days when she was healthy and our principal. It really bothers me that I can't get my videos and pictures for both reasons, the loss of the videos that would remind me and my staff of fun times with my friend at school and because of the animal videos I feel I have lost that I would love to be able to see and use again.I spend my free time making videos and doing animal photography. I have 10 game cameras set up on my property in East Texas and I love to watch the animals. All of my previous pictures, video, etc....is on that hard drive. I removed it and I can save to it but I can not open up the picture and videos on it. The new Macbook has updated software and I have not been able to open up iPhoto, IMovie, or IDVD and get my my pictures and videos from it. I really wish I could get those images and videos back. I now have that hard drive in a hard case to be used as an external hard drive. If you read all of this, Thank you! If you have any helpful ideas I would love to hear them. If you have any interest in the type of videos I make feel free to visit my Youtube channel at FoxysMyGirl@youtube.com Foxy was my first great dane and I was crazy in love with that dog hence the username! Thank you! Amy

I wanted a pro account. But it only let me sign up for a free account. I cant figure out how to upgrade. when I try it just takes me back to the same sign-up page. So I sign in...and have to start over looking for a way to get a pro account. When I think I've found the right link....I end up back at the sign-up page.... again. Am I just too stupid to be allowed into the club? Follow up: The link finally worked for me. I don't know what I did different this time. Thank you all for your help!! :)

So I just ordered this cable https://www.sparkfun.com/products/12977 to use with this Arduino board https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11113 and I think it may be the wrong cord because it says it's specifically for Raspberry Pi and something about resetting the Arduino won't work. So my question is, am I right for thinking that this is the wrong cable, or is there a way to make this work?

Or is it just my imagination. If you look at the "home" page and subsequent pages almost ALL of the posted instructables are by pros now. Am I one of the few non-pros left or is the some bonus and pros go to the head of the line now? Just asking?

I really need help, i just bought a HTC touch pro 2(second hand) and it can't send messages, I'm assuming that's cause it's an AT&T U.S. phone that was unlocked when bought. I live in Cambodia (S.E Asia), and I really need help, how can I get text messaging to work again? I'm fine if I don't get it back, and i just was just wondering if I were to put android on it, would it restore the texting feature? I NEED URGENT HELP!

I've successfully implemented Door Unlock system described in this tutorial. At first I used Arduino Uno and RFID RC522 Reader and MG90S Micro servo. When I used Arduino Uno with Arduino Pro Micro for arduino ATmega32U4 5V/16MHz, the RFID reader stops wirking after pluging the servo. Since Arduino Pro Micro have only 5v output, I used resistors to downgrade 5v to 3v in order to poser the RFID reader. I used same output 'vcc' to select 5v for the servo and 3v converted to the reader. The problem is that each component woks perfectly independent each other, however, when I place them together they stop working.
