Perhaps a quick question, but I'm starting to wonder why my instructable shows up with 0 views. I do know that I've gotten more than that, what with the comments posted on... Is there some kind of algorithm that decides whether or not something is a view? Thanks if you actually answer :P

Infinity divided by 0?

Does infinity divided by zero theoretically equal any number other than 0 or infinity? I heard something about ohm's law applied to a circuit with an ideal voltage source (which is only theoretically possible) and having the terminals shorted out and at 0 ohms, resulting in the current going up to infinity?

I need help on configuring marlin on my arduino mega 2560 ramps 1.4 for a da vinci 2.0 printer

Hi Guy's I am new at this game and in plane words "I have no clue what I'm doing wring" I bought a Da Vinci 2.0 Duo and after a few weeks the problems started. After searching the internet on solutions I discovered that I can rip out the original board of the printer and replace it with Arduino mega 2560 ramps 1.4. I did that and got some info on what the sketch should look like on Youtube but I am struggling to get the printer fully functioned. This project is a little more than what I thought it would be. I tested the boards but they seem ok, again, Youtube help here but now I am at a loss. I mannaged to get the stepper motors to work but I am struggling with the famouse endstops and how to home the axis's. If you think I am way less than a beginner you are right. These things make my head spin. Is there any one that can share his marlin sketch configuration, that is working, with me. I am tired of this now and just want the printer to work. Any help will be much appreciated Many thanks

Instructable has been published for over a day and has 0 views

My pokeball earring instructable has been published for about a day now, but there seems to be 0 views. I know someone must have viewed it, because I shared it with friends, and it was accepted into the Game.Life 2 challenge. A few minutes after I published the instructable, I tried to view said instructable but it said "Instructables is down temporarily" or something to that effect. I waited about five minutes, and came back to see that it was back up again. Everything was working again. This might be an irrelevant detail, howevever. Also the layout is a bit messed up. It might be a problem on my end since I'm using an outdated browser on my school's computer. Check attached image. I'm not sure if this has been addressed already or not, but I wanted to get this out there with the hopes that someone else might have the same problem. Best Regards, ~ Tomcat94

Running USB 3.0 extension next to AC line

I have an HTPC hooked up to the entertainment center.  I have a 5ft rubber "wire-hider" that I'm running an extension cord to a coffee table with a hidden power strip so people can plug in their laptops, etc. I bought a 5m/"15 ft" usb 3.0 extension cable and ran it next to the cord in the wire-hider, then connected usb 3.0 powered hub to the cable.  PC struggles to connect devices, and drops them intermittently. My 1st guess was EMI, so I unplug the extension and no problems. My question, can anyone suggest a source for shielded USB 3.0 extension cable OR can I use Shielded Cat6 to run USB 3.0 signals?  Besides wireless or buying a second wire-hider, do you have any other suggestions?

A quick RAID question!

I want to have a larger amount of space on my server and also be able to keep all my music and whatnot together. I currently have a 160gb drive in this pc that is full to the brim with music (oh that will be fun finding places for it all). And I have a 160 in the server with random backup files and whatnot, what I'd like to do is set it up with RAID 0, so I have around 320gb of space all together. I was wondering though what anyone thought of doing this if it was very safe if one of the drives fail, I realize I'd loose all the data on the one drive, but would it be possible to recover the data on other other drive still? Also, these aren't sata drives, so I'll have to use window's built in RAID controller thingy. Perhaps I should just pull out a bunch of old hard drives and rig them up to one of my test mobo's and try it with that first? Can you raid USB and ide drives together?

Ethernet to USB 3.0?

I was looking around this afternoon and found the wonderful 'PCI Express X16 to USB 3.0 adapter' which got me thinking, This could be an awesome way to add a better graphics card to a small computer e.g. a laptop or preferably a Raspberry Pi. Now i know that the Pi doesn't have any USB 3.0 ports but it does have Ethernet (which from past experience is quite a lot faster than USB 2.0) My question to you is this: Is it possible to get a USB 3.0 to Ethernet adapter so that we can have USB 3.0 ports on a Raspberry Pi, and if so would the Pi be fast enough to run an external graphics card connected through a PCI Express to USB 3.0 adapter?

Broken USB 2.0

Is it possible to fix a USB 2.0 that has become loose in it's case.  It  attaches to a Cooler Master Laptop cooler.  But since my cat hit it with his head it is now loose in its socket and will not power my Cooler Master.  It only has the 1 USB that plugs into my Laptop and runs from the battery or power cord of the Laptop or if the Laptop is  plugged into a power outlet.  I bought a new and different Cooler for my Laptop but I find I don't think it cools as well as my old Cooler Master. I have tried Cooler Master company itself and they were of no help. Can someone here help me with this problem.  I will try and explain how it is connected to the Cooler Master itself. The USB 2.0 has a long cord  that splits into two different wires.  Like a Y set up. One leg of the Y goes to 1 fan and the other Y goes to the second fan.  So both fans are connected to the Y with the USB 2.0 at the end of the Y that plugs into my USB port on my Laptop.  So with out the USB the Cooler Master will not work. I hope I explained it all right.  Can someone PLEASE help me fix this.  I do not like the new fan.   I want my Cooler Master back. I would appreciate any help you could give me. Thank You.............Glenda D

I even changed the ATmega from the 8A it came with to a ATm328 w/ bootloader and blink sketch already installed on  my Arduino as well.

How to build a 0-36v, 0-10a, Regulated, AC/DC Power Supply? Answered

I'm looking for how to make a variable regulated power supply for DC electronics. I have wall warts and single range transformers for lots of different items ranging from battery chargers to toys to LED lights and am looking to combine them all down into one unit. I need to be able to adjust the voltage from ad little as 1.2v @ 200ma all the way up to 36v @ 10amps. I would normally take the easy way out and buy a power supply online that would handle it, but I am strapped for cash and this is more a luxury then a necessity. If possible I would like to be able to use LCD/LED panel meters that are powered by the input along with fine and coarse controls, along with dual outputs. Something along the lines of the Mastech HY5005E-2 that's pictured below. Maybe convert a cheap PC power supply with a digital multimeter? I can solder and work a basic circuit but I haven't done anything this complicated as yet.  I would appreciate any help offered. Thanks!

2 projects, 2 questions. help? Answered

Hi everybody i have 2 new projects i am working on, and i had some questions about them: 1-wirelessly (bluetooth) controlled LED So this is more or less a starter project, i just got a new laptop with bluetoth and i want to experiment, i figured being able to turn an led on and off via bluetooth would be a good start. 2-Webcam that fits in a PCMCIA slot filler card I think that this project has a better chance of actually being finished than the one above... along with my new laptop, i got one that had a broken screen, it also had a built in webcam. (acer travelmate 5530, the bottom will be used in some other project) I removed the webcam and later i had the thought that maybe it was thin enough to fit in a pcmcia slot. almost. the question here is if i sanded down the plastic parts on the top of the lens (not the lens itself, there is a bit of plastic that bevels around the lens) to the point where it would be thin enough, could someone help me find a pinout of the webcam? all i know is that its usb 2.0, but the connector has 5 wires, 2 of them are ground, but the data + and - and vcc are unknown, the wire colors are different than a normal usb color code. I cannot upload pictures quite yet but i will as soon as i can.

Wii - Play Backup Games without modchip -- System Menu V 4.0 ?

Please note: I am beginner at this. Ok, here is what I have done: 1. I have upgraded my System Menu to version 4.0 using the update option from the Wii2. Following this instructable: https://www.instructables.com/id/S9RV0FWFN4H8OED/ I have installed cIOS36 Rev7. This means that I have also installed Homebrew Channel (using Bannerbomb exploit ). 3. Following the same instructable I have got to the point where I got the Error ret-2011 which a lot of other people (with System Menu 4.0) got: " tried to install the 04-BackupLauncher0.3g+_249-NeoRame.rar like instructed below.I get a installing ticket...ERROR! (ret = -2011)"4. After that everything went down the drain. I have tried to follow this instructable: https://www.instructables.com/id/SQHX9S3FUNOXOKE/ with both versions (offline and online), but I kept getting the -2011 error. 5. I have tried to follow other tutorials out there but I did not get any further because of different errors. Now I do not know what version of cIOS or other files I have installed on my Wii.I have tried to update again my System Menu 4.0 in case I have messed up anything but my Wii says that I already have the latest version installed. So my questions are: 1. How do I know what version of the Files I have and whether I have messed up my System Menu ? And how do I get back to the original System Menu 4.0 of the files? 2. Since the aim of this entire thing is to play backup games, how do I fix this and how do I get my Wii to play the backup games, from backup DVDs (I've seen that it might be possible to play them from USB devices, I am not interested in that right now). Also, I do not want to install any other homebrew applications (like DVD players or video players).3. If in the process I have to downgrade my System Menu, what are the exact steps to do that? Thank you very much for your help and I hope someone will be able to help me make things work !If you think you can help but you need more information, please comment on my question and I will provide as much information as I can

Arduino Coding Question: How do I blink one LED 8 times and then another LED 8 times then repeat?

I'm using two 4017 decade counters to count to 16 and I figure two Arduino outputs would be a good way to go. I want one 4017 to receive 9 pulses then and then wait while the other 4017 receives 9 pulses. (one pulse is a holding position) For the moment I'm just trying to blink one LED 9 times and then another 9 times to represent two separate clock outputs. Here is a diagram: pin 13    1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 1, pin 12    0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0, Start      ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ then loop. This is for multiplexing a 16x16 led screen so I don't think I should use the  delay(1000);  command. Each counter needs 9 pulses with the last pulse to the first counter happening simultaneously with the first pulse to the second counter. And similarly the first counter getting its first pulse at the same time as the second counter gets its 9th pulse. Get it?

Making it more powerful?

Hi,  I have brought a sphero 2.0 which for those who don't know it a robotic ball about the size of a baseball. I decided to try and make a car for it out of knex although I will only be able to make it go backwards and forwards. I built a frame thing with a small wheel in the middle of it and sphero sits on top. The axle that the wheel is on has a gear which then connects to the drive wheel axles on the back using another gear. This works fine when in the air but when on the ground it's too heavy for sphero to power it. I've tried putting bigger gears on the front and vice versa, i've also tried using a pulley but it just isn't budging at all.  Say if I was using the standard knex motors how would I go about making it produce more power?

A couple of the tutorials use the following arrays... http://code.google.com/p/lolshield/downloads/list I spent a couple hours trying to help out a friend and could not dumb the code down to address individual LEDs using the understood matrix below... uint16_t BitMap[][9] PROGMEM = { {1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0}, {3, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0}, {7, 3, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0}, {15, 7, 3, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0}, {31, 15, 7, 3, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0}, {63, 31, 15, 7, 3, 1, 0, 0, 0}, {127, 63, 31, 15, 7, 3, 1, 0, 0}, {255, 127, 63, 31, 15, 7, 3, 1, 0}, later in the code they use the following to 'fetch' the lines... for(line = 0; line < 9; line++)       {         data = pgm_read_word_near (&BitMap;[frame][line]);   // fetch data from program memory When I try to hi-jack the above line and use my 'own' numbers: data = pgm_read_word_near (&BitMap;[frame[1][3]);... it does not function.. I'm just trying to call out individual LEDs in response to external sensors and turn them ON and OFF with delays and such... any help breaking down this code? I understand the matrix but can't seem to call it out... thanks! HERE is the sample code: #include   //This is in the Arduino library int blinkdelay = 75; //This basically controls brightness. Lower is dimmer int runspeed = 20;   //smaller = faster int pin13 =13; int pin12 =12; int pin11 =11; int pin10 =10; int pin09 =9; int pin08 =8; int pin07 =7; int pin06 =6; int pin05 =5; int pin04 =4;
