2 to the 2 to the 22 power

I recently took the pamel (pennsylvania math league test thing) and for one of the questions it said: rearrange the numbers 2 in anyway with mathmatical symbols to get the highest number possible. I though the answer was 2 to the 222 power The answer was 2 to the 2 to the 22 power Is this correct? I thought that you would multiply the powers to get 2 to the 44 power, now have the power to the power and get 2 to the 4194304 power.

2 Years!

Not that anyone cares, but I just realized that I've been a member of Instructables for 2 years now! It's been a while since I've written a completely self-serving post and I just thought this was a personal event worth noting. So.... how long have you all been members? P.S. I haven't been on here too much recently, but I'm liking the new editor. P.P.S. It's easy to do crazy formatting!

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.

Rant numero # 2

Well after seeing the same commercial like 3 times in a row (don't ask, my cable company is dumb as hell) I got a little fed up. These commercials about donating money to save the animals, save the african children that happened because lack of control. Face it people, these people only want your money, why do you think there's so many different commercials and ads from so many different companies/organizations? We'll start with the money thing. They tell you it only costs a dollar a day or some silmilar bullcrap so you can save ONE child. Here's the catch, they usually tell you that 40 cents of each dollar or the such will be sent to africa/said child right? Well that 60 cents they keep probably can be safely said that it adds up to a profit, yes? Sad.... If I want to help a child out in africa, I'll put $20 or however much of their money (Go to a exchange building people!) in an envelope and mail it down to them africans, I'm not going to pay someone 60% of the total donation just to take it down there. That's BS, why are people so screwed up? But hey, some people are probably thinking, why would we help africans right? That's BS eh? Well yes and no. While helping out your fellow humans, it's about the nicest thing you can do and I expect you to do it, there is a point. There is a whole nation, and we're supposed to just lift them off the ground and feed them, clothe them and give them money. Why are there so many people that there isn't enough food, shelter, or said clothing in the first place? Lack of self control obviously and they need to realise that you can't just have 10 kids these days and it's all cool, due to the cost of things these days (or at least that's what the government wants you to think). It wasn't me that made the african make so many kids, why should I donate? There are many looks and points of views that can be taken and I guess it's the fact that everyone looks at things differently in some way that these organizations take advantage of that. I could be wrong, but hell, who wants to argue me?

Japan Day 2

I woke up around 8 or 9 and took a shower. Sarah and Seba had already left, the Czech couple was still around, but they were gone by the time I got out of the bathroom.I got dressed, threw on my backpack since I did not know if I was coming back, and headed over to a bike store I had seen the day before. I wanted to buy a cheap folding bike, so I could ride between the closer cities. I practiced my Japanese on the guy, who was really polite and helpful, and found out that he had two folding bikes. One was used for about 5,600 Yen, but it was pretty crummy, the other was new and very nice, but about 35,000 yen. I had about 23,000 yen left over from the money I exchanged at the airport, but I was wary about making any large purchases before I knew if my credit/debit card worked, so I said sumimasen and left.Wandered around the burbs of Nagoya for a bit before I stopped off in a chain mini-mart to test if I could get cash from an ATM, I couldn't. Took the subway to downtown, got off at the wrong stop, got back on, and ended up in Central Park, right underneath the large TV tower. I was trying to find something cool to do using my lonely planet guide, and eventually decided the robot museum sounded like fun. After wandering around for a good hour looking for it I gave up (I later found out that it went bankrupt and shut down). I was very disappointed, especially since I was wearing my robot shirt, and had a pocketful of robot stickers. After losing all hope of finding the robots, I went into a large mall (mostly because it was air conditioned) and rode the escalators for a bit. That got boring, so I decided to head over to Nagoya Station. During the long walk, I stopped off in every 7/11, Lawsons, Family Mart, and Circle K I could find, but I could not get money from any of the atms in them, which got me kind of worried.Got to the station and took some pictures. Decided to check out Noritake Garden sine it was not too far away. Got to the garden and relaxed for a while, before heading back towards central park. On the way back I walked through a really colorful open air market. Got to central park, and relaxed for a bit. Much relaxing is required when traveling with a extremely heavy backpack, and it is a gabillion degrees out.While sitting in the park, I looked down to see about 20 mosquitoes feasting on my legs. Those bites are damn itchy. Got on the subway and headed back to Changmi's house. Fell asleep.Japan Day 3

BF2 Error at Kit/Spawnpoint Menu

Battlefield 2 - Multiplayer Problem - After the map first loads, the "Select Checkpoint/Kit" menu pops up like normal, but I can not move the mouse cursor and the keyboard buttons do nothing in the game. Pressing Tabs-Lock makes the beep sound as if the Squad menu just popped up, but the screen stays the same (checkpoint/kit) and the mouse cursor stays in the middle of the screen. I can here the battle sounds in the background, and the checkpoint map changes flags as in real time play, but I can not start playing. This problem occurred after the game froze on 2 consecutive attempts, each freeze causing me to hard power-off the computer. After 3 attempts brought me the frozen cursor and keys, I reinstalled BF2 (just the original) and ran a virus scan. After the reinstall of the game, I tried once more to log on to Multiplayer, but it resulted in the same problem. The game has been working great for me for the past few months, and I was playing it already today.
