New card

I have this new Ati all in wonder card right? And it has two tuners built into it, one is supposed to be for TV which is what I have it hooked up to right now, and the other for FM radio which I haven't tried yet. But is there a good chance that they are both regular tuners and I could use them for dual recording?

Stats cards!

I've just pushed out another release which has a pretty cool new feature, stats cards!  We've collated a bunch of what we think are some interesting stats on members, like their view count, comment count, feature percentage, etc.; and those are now shown on the member's page as a quick overview of their activity on Instructables.  This was inspired by the awesome Top Trumps-style card game created by Jayefuu with gmjhowe, Lithium Rain, Kiteman, Yokozuna, KentsOkay and Lemonie. This release also changes how we serve up images.  This is an under-the-hood change so you should not see any difference, but if you do notice missing images anywhere, PM me or one of the other site admins and let us know. Update: oops, this update broke PDF images!  We'll fix that ASAP. Update: fixed.

business card holder?

I'm in a real estate associated business and am looking for some help in designing and then building a business card holder. The plastic ones that are ubiquitous in office supply stores are expensive and generic. I'm wanting it to consist of wood and basically "slide" together to hold the cards. It must be very simple to construct. Thanks so much.

Upgrading wireless card? Answered

I bought an Atheros wireless-N mini PCI-E card for an HP DV7 series laptop, to replace the Broadcom wireless-G card, however, when installed, I just get a bios error "unsupported network card". I removed it and restarted with the original card and it works fine. I trhen tried installing the card live, and it detected it and installed the software, but then BSOD (my first one for Windows 7 actually), so I swapped back to the original card again. I then installed the card in the secondary bay, live, and it installed the drivers successfully, but when swapped with the original card again (the wires don't reach to the other bay), it failed to boot again. How can I replace the original card?

Tethered SD card

I would like to tether a cheap digital camera. The problem is I don't know which one - I'm watching on ebay for a madly cheap camera (I've seen loads go where they're fine except for a stuck zoom - like 6Mp cameras for about £3 - when every time I've looked at a stuck zoom a bit of twisting and brute force will get it back in to the body - and the project I want it for doesn't need to zoom!). Problem with doing this is that by the time I've found a cheap camera with 2 minutes to go, it tends to take a lot longer to that to figure out whether you can tether it. And even then you're normally limited to the provided software, I'd like to be able to write my own. So - can anyone think of a way to take an old SD card and somehow - I don't know - solder wires to the insides of the contacts maybe - and then somehow get those wires into another old SD card and plug it into the card-reader attached to a PC so that you can read the images without unplugging the "card" from the camera?

Video card questions Answered

I've recently gotten a free PC (a HP Evo D510) which I intend to do some moderate networked gaming on.  My plan was to buy a cheap AGP or PCI graphics card, but I'm unsure what to go with (ATI/nVidia, AGP/PCI). I've only had experience with PCI-E cards so far. From what I've read, AGP is faster than PCI.  I assume this is correct?  Looking at NewEgg, it would seem that AGP ATI cards are ludicrously better than AGP nVidia cards.  Is this the case?  The computer to be upgraded has 2 Gib of RAM and a 2.4 Ghz P4.  I'm anticipating the porcessor to be a bottleneck, along with slow bus speeds.  I suppose my main question here is what GPU should I roll with?  I'd like to spend less that $75, but that's flexible to a certain extent.  Anyways, thanks in advance.

Duplicating a SIM card?

Hi. I have an Iphone 5s with an AT&T SIM card. I will be going to sleep away camp at the end of this month. At camp, they allow you to keep your phones, but the head of the camp takes your SIM card so that you cannot call, text, or use the internet while you are at camp. This is going to be a big problem for me this summer because a lot is going on in my life at the moment, and I really need to keep in touch. I heard that it is possible to duplicate your SIM card. If this is true, I will sneak the duplicate card in. Ideally, I would like to be able to text/imessage, and be able to connect to the internet. I want to keep my same phone number. Additionally, once I leave camp, I would like to put my old SIM card in, as well as on field trip days while I am there (they give your SIM cards back for an hour on trip days.) I feel like this plan could definitely work if I execute it properly. I already have a plan to make sure no body finds out, so that part is settled. However, I read somewhere that switching between SIM cards can really screw up your phone. And b.) I heard that doing this is illegal and that doing this means AT&T will shut my phone service off permanently. I don't wan that to happen. If someone could answer my questions or tell me how to go about doing this, that would be great. Thx

How to make a RFID bracelet for a travel card (Oyster card)?

Im trying to make a bracelet which incorporates my London Oyster Card (RFID travel card) so i can just swipe my wrist and not faff about with wallets or pockets etc but I am having a few issues. The basic design is going to be simple and effective. I will have a length of regular guage wire around the wrist, secured by a single wire connector/ terminal block (see photo). It will prob be a earth wire, as it is a fancy colour. The RFID will be placed inside the plastic connector and hot glued end end to secure it and keep out the elements. The RFID's aeriel wire will be inside the earth wire heatshrink, it will be a loop of wire and can be as thick as it needs to be. I keep having problems though, I cant get the chip out of the card in one piece. I have been using nail varnish remover but with mixed results.   When/if I do get the RFID chip out of the card, i will need to solder a new aerial and I am unsure about the process. Does the length/gauge of wire matter for the function of the RFID? im thinking about its frequency. Will it need to be ceramic covered wire to avoid shorts? Has anyone put a contactless travel card into other things? Or has any experience dealing with this sort of area? I would very much appreciate any help or advice.

End Zone card game (a great card game I made up)

END ZONE The Card Game End Zone is a fun card game using strategy while choosing a way to win. Here's one of the most interesting facts about End Zone: Only one deck is needed to play. Each deck must have exactly 100 cards. At the bottom is the Blackout card, or End Zone card. The blackout card has no picture. Each deck must have one blackout card. Each blackout card is placed at the bottom of the deck and must be shown to each player before being placed there. The whole point of the game is to get your opponent to draw the blackout card. But there is a catch. At no time can you look through the deck to see where the blackout card is. Any cards that were played are sent to the bottom of the deck at the end of the controller's turn unless stated otherwise. This is where strategy comes in. You will have to remember how many cards were already played in order to make an accurate guess where the blackout card is. Here are the basic steps to playing. 1.Each player draws three cards a the beginning of the game. Because there is only one deck, you would have to synchronize between draws meaning that you would draw a card, then your opponent would draw a card, then you would draw your second card, and so on. This only makes it fair. When it is your turn: 1.Draw one cards. 2.You must play one card. You are allowed to activate a card during the first turn. 3.Discard two cards `to the bottom of the deck. 4.End turn. When it is your opponents turn: 1.Opponent draws two cards. 2.If you have a card that has a lightning bolt in the top corner, you can play it after your opponent draws. 3.Opponent makes move. Once again, cards with a lightning bolt can be played. 4.Opponent discards two cards. 5.Opponent ends turn.

How do I bypass a card-reader type security system?

I'm trying to find a way to bypass the security system in my building, a simple card-reader setup. Really more a prank than not.  My boss has been watching my card and logging the times it's accessed, I want to show him that he can't trust the card.  Nothing nefarious, just proof that I can be around and not have to access my card.  If it helps, the security company is Datawatch.

Replace sounds on greeting card sound module

Hello, I recently purchased this item from ebay. It's a "30s Light Sensor Record Device Module Music Box Sound Chip For Greeting Card" It comes with a pre-recorded happy birthday song. Now I want to change that song and I am pretty sure it can be done somehow, because I can see some connections available, except I am not sure what they mean and how to use them. The seller responded that there is no documentation and if I want certain sounds I have to send them the files and they will record them for me before shipping... which is ridiculous... I want to be able to change the songs when I please. The connections marked on the board say: TG1 TG2 TG3 GND VDD PW1 and PW2 Any suggestion could help.
