Ultimate Frisbee Lite.

Ultimate Frisbee rules run to twenty pages, so I came up with this for my classes. I thought I'd share it, but I couldn't see the point in posting an Instructable when my school's rules require written permission from every parent involved before pictures of kids go online, so I just took advantage of Rachel fixing the topic-posting bug. Indoor Ultimate Frisbee Lite (“Indoor Lite”) 1. The play's the thing: all players and observers must keep to The Spirit Of The Game. Teams shoukd self-referee. If any dispute requires a decision by a bystander or observer, that decision is binding. 2. The game may be played with and disc agreed upon by both team captains. 3. Teams of up to 8, with a maximum of 5 players on the field. 4. The game continues for either an agreed length of time, or to an agreed score (for example, “first to five”). 5. Before play, team captains agree the end zones and playing field, and choose ends to defend. An indoor game has no “out of bounds”, and play continues as normal if the disc bounces off walls, ceiling or fixtures in the room. 6. When the opposing team gains possession of the disc, it is called a turnover. 7. Ultimate is non-contact sport – intentional obstruction of, or contact with another player will result in a turnover. If a turnover is the result of a rule-break, the disc is handed to the nearest opposing player. 8. At the start of play, each team gathers in their end zone. One captain throws the disc towards the opposing team. Nobody may enter the playing field until the disc passes the half-way mark. 9. A point is scored when the disc is caught in (or above) the opposing team's end zone. 10. After a point is scored, all players return to their own end-zone, and the player who caught the disc to score the point throws the disc to re-start the game. 11. A player in possession of the disc may not move, but may pivot on one foot. “Travelling” results in a turnover. 12. The player in possession of the disc must throw the disc within five seconds – any near-by player may count to five out loud. Holding the disc past five seconds is a turnover. 13. If the disc hits the ground, possession passes to whichever team did not touch it last – if team A throws it and nobody catches it, team B gain possession. If team A throw the disc, team B block its flight and it then hits the ground, then team A regains possession. If team A throw the disc, but team B catch the disc in the air, team B gains possession and play continues. 14. If two players catch the disc, whoever caught it first gains possession. If two players catch the disc simultaneously, a single round of rock, paper, scissors determines possession. 15. Unlimited substitutions may be made after any point is scored. House Rules. Because Indoor Lite can be played in a wide range of venues, typically school gyms or halls, some “house rules” may be developed, such as “if the disc goes through the basket ball hoop, that's a point as well” or “if the disc falls behind the vaulting horse, possession turns over and everybody goes back to their ends to start play again”. Before play begins, any new or visiting players must be made aware of the house rules. I also blogged this.

What repair does my ds lite need? The problem is with the bottom screen when playing any puzzle solving game Answered

The screen rolls so it shows the top of the page along the bottom at the same time (like an old tv when the vertical hold goes) The words jump till you can't read them and the screen goes a greenish color. This started as an occasional problem but always corrected its self but it is now constant. I can still play the likes of Lara Croft with only the odd bit of trouble which sorts its self.

Nintendo DS Lite Not Working

So, I have had my Nintendo DS Lite for a few years and used to play it a lot until 2011-2012. I finally decided to start playing it again a few days ago when it stopped working. I know it isn't dead because I charged it completely before trying to use it. When I turn it on, the green light turns on but the screen remains black. Also, the screen has turned on once or twice but it's currently not working.

LED Lite String Question?

So I have these cool LED Xmas lite strings which have 20 LEDs and run off of 3xAA batteries. Within the battery pack, where the power switch is, is a single resistor, 5.1 ohms (green / brown / gold / gold). I want to splice on another length of 20 LEDs to the existing set but would like to run all 40 off of the original 3xAA battery configuration. Do I just divide the resistor rating in half since I doubled the load (work being done) ? The project needs to conserve space, which is why I'm not using both battery packs.

Nintendo DS lite - bottom screen shows only top half (bottom half mirrors top half).

However, touch items on bottom half (that I can't see) still work, e.g., settings. Recalibrating touch screen does nothing. Do I need a new touch screen, LCD screen or both? Or can I fix this another way?

just a thought... (ds projector)

Just a thought i had when i saw all of these led projectors on here. and then i saw a ds sitting on the table then i though, what if there was a such a thing as a ndsl projector?! how i believe it would be contructed, at  least the case anyways, would be to detach the top screen from the bottom. then to use the screen as you would any other in a diy projector, keeping in mind that it has to stay connected to the ds. then build half a ds arcade stand for the ds, and build the rest of the projector. would this be plausible? or would it be impossible?

Da-lite Silver-lite manual projector screen: Repair help!

So today I totally scored at Goodwill with not one but TWO projector screens!  One is your typical matte white but the other is a silver screen by Da-lite!  (well, both are da-lite) And I was DALITEd (see what I did there?) to find them so cheaply!  So purchased them I did.  But getting home I discovered the silver screen projector (the case a beautiful teal color!) had some rips.  Luckily not across the main viewing portion but along the rails that A-roll it up and B-keep it from going into the case.  I managed to fix the tears along B but A I'm aware has some sort of tension spring dohickey that is only kept wound by the end caps!  And to fix that tear I'll definitely have to completely disassemble the thing.  (to fix the tears I've used a combination of hand sewing and shoe-goo on the underside, since it repairs vinyl.) I can't quite find a repair/replace/fix guide that even comes close.  I was hoping to come across a guide replacing the material at least but that was a no-go.  Closest thing I found was to carefully take off the ends and with the screen rolled up screw back one end (left) and wind the rod back with the other (right) before screwing it back in.  Guide didn't really specify my model though or even go into detail about the specific tension mechanism, so I'm doubtful at best on wanting to try it out. (and heaven forbid lose a finger!)  Not to mention mine pulls up instead of pulls down, so orientation seems like a toss up. Anyone have any suggestions for a DIY approach to this?
