Computer Help?

Though I do program and will take the certification exam in a few days, I need some technical help.  I drew a picture in charcoal and though I don't have it any more, I do have a picture of it on a digital camera.  How do I upload the picture to my computer? (My computer is an Apple MacBook)

Computers?

Has anyone had any experience with Linux We are getting interested but dont know just how to get started. We understand you can run two systems but would like to format a hard drive and try Linux on an older machine. Would appreciate which kernel to down load. We would like to use it for Email, web browsing, word processing, and pictures. Any comments would be appreciated. Ross

Notes in pictures...

I am about to submit an instructable and would like to add notes to my pictures but it never saves the note. Everything seems to work fine (I can draw the box and add the note) until I hit save.  When I hit save the dial indicator just spins and nothing happens.  I can walk away from my computer for 20 minues and when I get back it will still be spinning trying to save the note. I thought it might be my connection from home, but I have since tried it on my computer at work with the same result. Has anyone else had this problem? Thanks in advance.

Inserting a picture into an instructable in progress make it freeze

I've written quite  few instructables and I'd never run into this problem. Whenever I uploaded a certain picture into my latest instructable, the whole thing would freeze. I couldn't delete the picture, save the work in progress, create or delete steps or do anything! I thought my file must be corrupt and recreated the photo but I continued to have the same problem regardless of what browser I was using (Firefox or Safari). I can't delete the uploaded pictures from my library either because they are "in use" by unfinished instructables I can't change, publish or delete. Finally I tried to change the file name of my picture. It's original name was quite long, so I changed it to muff.jpeg. This solution worked! But I still had to recreate a new instructable from scratch. Even if this is just a parameter which all users need to be aware of when uploading their files I think it could be improved on the website end... it should not be possible to upload pictures unless their filenames are compatible with the site. Now I've no idea how I'll get rid of those useless draft instructables, and the photos with the bad file names in my library....

Picture Bug

When I try to click on a photo after the first people provide to show the steps, it continues to show the first photo and none of the ones I click. It's almost like a broken link but it has to do with a setting on my computer and have tried to fix it but can't figure it out. I'm running a windows 7 machine and Firefox 9.0.1.

Pictures On Firefox

It seems I cannot change the pictures on Instructables. I am running windows xp pro Service pack 3 on a fairly powerful Machine. I am running Firefox 9.0.1 with the latest versions of all major plugins (flash, java, wmp, vlc, etc...). However when I go onto any instructable, it seems I cannot change the pictures by clicking on the thumbnails... Tried it on about 50 different instructables, all have the same problem, tried everything i could think of to fix (disabling all extensions, restarting browser, restarting computer) EDIT: Seems only to affect Firefox, other browsers are working fine...

building a picture frame?

Have an older Toshiba 2595 lap top (don't even remember how I acquired it, blame that one on the “Old Timers Disease” that I have). I am going to build a Digital Picture Frame from it. When I acquired it there was no battery or power supply with it. While doing some repair work on a similar computer for a friend, I did power it up with his battery and installed Windows 98 SE on the hard drive, so I know the unit works. The HD is only a 6 Gig, but is big enough to hold a couple of hundred pictures and the software program “Slideshow” to rotate them. What I need to know is, will this work on the power supply only. Do I need to do anything with the battery connections? There are 10 pins where the battery went into the computer and I don’t have any idea of which ones did what. Does anyone know what rating of power supply is required for this unit. Could I use a generic power supply instead of having to purchase the exact one for this unit? Of course you know there will be another upcoming “instructable” of how to build a Digital Picture Frame. I will try and make mine a bit more entertaining and perhaps include some new idea about how to do this type of thing.   Thanks Larystoy

Pictures SLOOOW to download?

OK. Here's the thing. I have Webshot pictures. I have all others from various sources stored in 'My Pictures'. I use my desktop as a 'picture gallery', changing the pic everyday. BUT Webshots dominates, and if my pic is not from its source-it changes the desktop pic to the last Webshots pic that was there. That is problem no 1. I don't want to lose their pics, but I who love to lose them! Easier said than done... any tips on that?? Now: the main question: I know that My Pics are capable of downloading fairly instantly. They used to/then they slowed again-(I had some sort of a minor comp glitch),-and bang!, they came back to speed/slow again/...glitch (computer froze,-not for long, then OK)-they were at speed again! That was this week. This time I watched the sequence: I defragged??? Slow again. Taking about 1min 30 for the pictures to download (upload??). (Webshots are unaffected). On a scale of 1-10 computer capability, I would be about a 6. But I have tried. I am ASDL2. I have Avast. I suspected Avast was scanning every picture. I went to 'exclusions' and excluded 'images'.....I think. I did click on My Pics for exclusion. No dice. Still slow. This is problem no 2. This is lengthy, but I don't know any other way,-and some of the Tech'sites are waaaay over my little grey head. Any help would be appreciated.

There is this bug when people tag outside of the picture and you cant see the other pictures. I guess you can reproduce the bug. All I did to get the bug is go on the instructable. I usually refresh and just dont go on the picture. Before the bug I browse on instructables. My computer is a windows 7 computer.

Automatic changing picture?

I recently bought a mini pc for $60 on amazon. It is quad core @1.6Ghz and runs Android 4.2 (But I'll put in an XUbuntu sd card for it to boot off of). I want to use a 7" photo frame I have as a monitor for this tiny computer. I don't think it is possible at all (At least in what I will be willing to do). The only way I can think of using it as the monitor is having the mini pc stream new images to a modded sd card so that the image it streams will change 10 times a second (For example). The photo viewer will then read the same image, but, the image will be changing. This looks like a long shot. Some problems I am thinking of occurring are so: 1) Getting a modded SD card that attaches to another SD card or USB 2) Having the photo frame reread the photo as it changes 3) The refresh rate of the screen (Thinking it is maybe 5-15 FPS). Any solutions? There is no USB port on the frame btw. My photo frame model: SP70EWB

Startup file to copy a picture

I have a school tablet that was forced upon us by my school. The IT department at my school insists that the computers stay 'uniform' by having the same background for desktop and log on etc. As the mischief making students that we are, we quickly tracked down the destination file and replaced the image with one of our own. But the IT found a way to stop this by changing the file back every few times we boot. So I was wondering if I could get some help with the coding for copying a file on boot. All help is appreciated.

SO far I got:Get some tophats and take some rich pictures (this ones just for me and my friends, injokes and such)Men in Black When I first sported my suit at a party, two girls (yes cute!) came up to me while I was listening to songs on my ipod, and they said: you look like an FBI agent or something. One pair of sunglasses later, as well as remembering one of my favorite instructables, this idea was born. I gotta make the guns now...Billy the puppet, from Saw. I have the suit, and now I gotta make the mask. I also got a little girl bicycle (dont ask why...)Tuxedo+Guy Fawkes mask+cape+hat=awesome ( I KNOW HE DOESNT WEAR A SUIT! I KNOW!

Lost photos in Adobe Photoshop Elements 6?

Even though these pictures appear in the photo catalog they have question marks in the corner and none of these pictures can be accessed, printed or copied etc., so technically have been lost. They cover a number of events, friends, family, years and trips taken. It is devastating. I think someone that  has a good deal of Photoshop knowledge might know what I have done besides not learning how to properly use Adobe Photoshop Elements 6.

can anyone help build a basic computer?

The fact is pictures use 24 bits. It is not simple to use available microprocessors to make a computer at home. Way too many pins Well I think that a z80 microprocessor and two 8 bit presettable counters could deliver a picture with 24 bits. Did anyone really ask for microsoft? What task would you work on? Example number one 1)  computer division : this is binary number division with check in the loop  that you just drew up. The microprocessor only has about 125 commands that you write down.  A command can be as simple as jump to line 0000 0000 0000 0000 . this can be a simple loop that has to be done or the chip is scrapped.  The number 2)  Is there a picture chip like the commodore 64 has?  Find one. An easy chip.   3) Are there any monitors left?  Did any one ask for those  sounds microsoft has ? Most people should have figured out apple computers earlier.

Computers Used to Heat Conservatory

Waste Heat to Be Used by Conservatory ------------------------- Heat generated by the Univ. of Notre Dame’s high-performance computing department is being used to heat a local greenhouse. The department has placed a containerized data center next to the Ella Morris and Muessel-Ellison Botanical Conservatories and Potawatomi Greenhouse in South Bend, Ind. The waste heat generated by working servers is piped into the greenhouse where it is used to keep succulents and other desert plants warm. CleanTechnica.com reports the university is expected to lower its equipment cooling costs by $100,000. The city will save $70,000 it spends to heat the conservatory. The use of the waste heat is part of the Botanical Society of South Bend’s plan to help make the greenhouses self-sufficient due to budget cuts. ------------------------------ Pretty smart.
