"Dyeing" to know?

I was wondering if any one has some good ideas to help me with an annoying problem if it can be helped. I like to on occasion get used jeans like pants est and colour them using the ready to dye from a box. I pour the contents in to a large pot, add water, add an article of clothing and simmer for an hour or more. Then I rinse it under cold water and dry. After I wear the thing, it comes time for it to get washed, I notice a lot of colour bleeds out in to the water again. It doesn’t seem to change the intensity of the colour job but I was wondering if there’s a way of making the colour bleed less when I wash my article of clothing. Am I missing something? Should I do a salt bath after I dye the clothing? Just that the instructions say it has every thing in the powder. Suggestions appreciated. Thanks.

How do mosquitoes know where is the entrance of my house located?

Extremely low density of mosquitoes around the walls and windows(netted), but extremely high density near the door, like as if they knew which way the door opens and it is the door and waiting like vampires at dusk to come in suck the blood. Just tell me how do they know where my most frequently used entrance is.

Kiteman knows a secret!

Instructables is going back into the publishing business! OK, so it's not much of a secret, what with a bunch of people getting emails about their projects going into them, but individual comments are building into a bigger picture: Instructables is following up The Book with a bunch of eBooks - a BIG bunch of eBooks. I don't know the titles, yet, but there are going to be... (counts on fingers, runs out) more than several (in aPub format, maybe Kindle too?).  Did you get an email?  Are you going to be in one of them? If you find out a theme or title, add a comment. Can we work out what they all are before The Powers That Be let us know officially? Oh, and get this - at least some of the several will be free for pro members to download!  Now there's even more of a reason to post a cool project that could get freatured - a helping of free pro-ness would come with a side-order of eBookiness! (K'NEX?  Surely not?) Yes!  They're on the Kindle!

Anyone know what this is?

I just got hooked up with digital tv today, and www.wegener.com/PRODUCTS/STREAMING_MEDIA_DECODERS/SMD_515.php these are what they gave me for set top boxes. Little IPTV streaming boxes. I noticed there was a spare led labeled HD on the front, and upon further inspection, I found a ide connector and a power connector for a 3.5 inch hard disk. Normally my isp would want me to rent a different receiver for PVR functions, and additionally a lot more per reciever. This box can use a hard drive, but when I put one in, nothing happens when I plug it back in. Now apparently, from what I've read, my isp might have installed their own firmware onto the boxes, but I do not think that is the case, the menus look like the one's I've seen online. I expected for there to be an extra option pop up in the menu when I powered it on with a hard drive installed, but that was not the case... is it the format? I have a 40 gig in there (for a tester) formatted as fat32. What am I doing wrong here?? Oh yeah, and theres a screenshot I got off my tuner card, it only shows this "boot" screen when you unplug the power and plug it back in, otherwise when you switch it off, it seems to go into a "Soft-off" mode, and the hard disk I noticed also continues to spin after it's been turned off... I don't like that :S Anyways, I can't find anything online, so much as a quick reference manual on wegener's website, but it didn't provide anything useful, it vaguely mentioned the recording function, but nothing of installing a hard disk or setting it up. I assume there should be SOME kind of menu/setup I can get into to setup the hard drive/view more options other than the audio format and some other minor options I can currently see like menu appearance. I'm super fascinated to see if I can get a hard drive actually functioning on here, like the remote even has a record button on it, so obviously it was meant to be a pvr, just they expect you to pay them out the nose for them to put one in for you.

Anyone know what this resistor is? Answered

I am working on the eye controller board of the hexapod robot and it has some resistors on it. The parts list calls for 12 220 Ohm resistors but, based on the photos, there are more that what it shows in the text. The 12 near the top of the board I know are the 220 Ohm ones, but I do not know what the others are. The 2 vertical ones near the bottom I believe are 20 Ohm and the horizontal one closest to the bottom 220 Ohm. The 2 located underneath the 28-pin sockets are half-covered by the plastic. Does anyone have a suggestion on the value of these resistors? I included a picture of the board from the instructable page and circled the resistors in question.
