Hi All, To be honest, I don't know if my inquiry fits within this forum, but I really had no idea where to post what I need. I am currently interning at a non-profit nature center which relies heavily on volunteers. As art of my internship, my supervisor would like several databases created. I don't know what program would work best for my needs and I was hoping somebody could give me a few ideas for what I need to create. Here is what she would like: 1. A volunteer database that is searchable by the training and expertise each volunteer has received. Let's say for instance, that we are having an insect program and only those who have been trained for the program can volunteer. I need to be able to search a keyword or from a drop down menu individuals who have received this training. A spreadsheet would suffice, but some individuals have so many training sessions that it would get a bit long. We also have over a hundred volunteers. 2. A teacher database that shows the grades and classes each teacher in our system teaches. We have school groups come out, and if their is a fourth grade program, there is no reason to contact every other grade teacher. 3. This is the really challenging one. We have rental programs, and all users must complete rental information which includes name, contact information, type of rental, and emergency contact. I would like to go paperless with this and if somebody rents more than once they have to fill in the information every time. I would like to be able to search their name and have all of their information come up, then input their rental type and time, which would give me a list of how many rentals we have had per day/week/year and how much money we have made. As I said, I could just make a spreadsheet for the first two but I would like something a bit more sophisticated. If I was not clear about anything, please let me know.

Many of the instructables I submit are related to farming issues and solutions. Usually I choose Outdoors or Gardening as the category to assign it to but I wish there was a farming category. Farming is bigger than gardening and a faint subset of Outdoors. Can we create a Farming category?

I am new to intractable. I am inspired by the community. I found it because I had made a creation and I wanted an outlet the share it. For me creating is one of the most satisfying experiences. Most other things only get in the way. I always wish I had unlimited resources and enough free time to create to my heart’s desire. Today I had a realization that made me feel much better about all of life’s other obligations. It is the problems in daily life that inspire me to create. My most recent creation that I shared was a tool box I made for work. Only because I have work bogging me down did I need this creation. I am now very happy with the box. I wish I had more time and money to create but if I did I am afraid I may not have the desire to create.

Researchers at Purdue have impregnated paper with iron particles, creating "ferropaper." ------------------------------------------ Researchers at Purdue University have created a magnetic "ferropaper" that might be used to make low-cost "micromotors" for surgical instruments, tiny tweezers to study cells and miniature speakers. The material is made by impregnating ordinary paper -- even newsprint -- with a mixture of mineral oil and "magnetic nanoparticles" of iron oxide. The nanoparticle-laden paper can then be moved using a magnetic field. ------------------------------------------ The article later mentions that "newspaper and soft tissue paper are especially suitable." This sounds to me like a startlingly simple DIY project that could create some fun kinetic sculpture, if nothing else. Via ScienceDaily

Does anyone know and understand the process of creating a trademark? As best as I can gather creating a trademark is as easy as putting TM after what ever you would like trademarked. However, if you wish to register your trademark so you can have the R behind it that is where the line starts to blur and become a little more fuzzy. There are some fairly expensive fees as well as quite of bit of research that you first must do or face losing your $300+ fees. So if anyone has had anything registered with the Us Copyright and Trademark office please share your experience.

Here's an idea - an Instructable about how Instructables.com came to be Made by the Instructables Staff in their spare time. The first step would be the original idea. Then how some of the staff came to be a part of Instructables, how scripting started, how Instructables has changed and so on..... Oh Oh! And how the Instructables Robot came to be!!!!

Hi there! We want to produce an stl of a heelbone from DICOM files to print and use in an operation. The edible Chocolate Brain was the inspiration to use Invesalius - meshlab I already know so this seemed like a good option. there are, however, limited manuals in english and infos to figure out certain steps in the Program ... like creating the surface for the stl - the mask has already been taken care of and everything else looks right, just this one step isn't yielding the expected result. a link of the document in question to look at - https://www.dropbox.com/s/3oinuz5goz15mws/Fersenbein.inv3 I would appreciate any help a great deal. thank you & snowy regards from Vienna, Eva Tucek

Hello forums, I was wondering if anybody knew of a program that could do the following via USB. I have pet chickens that need feeding multiple times a day. I wanted to make a USB device that I could plug into my computer, and when I push a button in the program, it activates the USB port which is connected to my feeder. I don't need any help with making the feeder, it's just being able to run it on demand. Thanks in advance.

ive been waiting for my dongle i ordered from dealextreme.com for far to long and i am a very impatient man. ive set out to make a dongle, or try until it finally gets here. ive considered many options but its looking like this will be the most promising. my friend gave me a slightly damaged ipod touch (2nd gen?), which i found out has a broadcom bluetooth chip in it. i ripped up the ipod, found the chip, and the datasheet. ive messed with some circuitry before, but i am lost on this. im actually pretty novice with this sort of thing, but ive experimented and learned a lot on my own. i am eager to learn. my goal is to make this into a usb bluetooth adapter. i have all the ipod parts (may need some?), usb cables are abundant, and i have a soldering gun and i am able to use it. could someone please help guide me in the right direction? i am sorry if this doesnt belong here.. this is my first post here, but ive been enjoying the site for a while now. i am a big do it yourself kind of guy and will most definitely be uploading some of my ideas when i get around to it.

Log Entry 0001: I just purchased a Create and a BAM (but not received it yet). The plan is to use my Windows XP laptop as a bluetooth-tethered brain and write a C++ application that creates a virtual map of any room in which the Create finds itself; I'm not sure what the challenges are yet - I'm guessing there will be some latency in getting real-time information from the robot via the BAM module ... Step 1: read manuals on Bluthooth protocol, the Create command set; design the "brain" (a multi-threaded GUI windows app )... - Cheers.

You can read all about the contest here, but the group forums are going to be the place where you can submit your ideas for hacking the iRobot Create. Instructables will be judging the entries, and the top 15 ideas will win Creates. You only get to keep them though if you actually post an entry into the contest, so please keep your ideas realistic.

I am an origami enthusiast in some of my spare time, and I have several of my own designs brewing. Does anyone know of any software that can help in the process of creating the step-by-step instructions so that they look nice and elegant? Alternatively, are there any programmers that would like to team up on this project and create one? I have some experience programming and have some other ideas up in my noodle if anyone is interested.

Has anyone been able to create medium sized nonexplosive EMP generator? i recently purchased 4 oil capacitors each rated around 5.5KVDC and 32uF, from what i have learned, in order to create an EMP generator, you would need a to feed it a large amount of power in to a heavy gauge magnetic coil. I believe my caps could do the trick. I will be charging them with a ZVS driver coupled to a self wound ferrite transformer, then rectified. As for discharging i' will probably use a mechanical spark gap. I am hoping to create something like the shock pulse generators in amazing1.com, does my setup look feasible ?

I want to create, frame, and wall mount a simple screen which automatically refreshes via wifi every day with a new image taken offline. I envision a small screen on my wall that will automatically update with the new astronomy picture of the day (http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/astropix.html) or the wikipedia featured picture or whatever I want. It will showcase better artwork than anything I can buy and the image will never get old because it will always be changing. I have no idea how to go about creating this and really hope someone can help.
