Creating patches

I see we can upload our own patches to send to other people. What makes a "patch"? What are the size and format limits? Are there any style guidelines (the current patches all have a square border with rounded corners).

Creating Database

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.

Time money and creating

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.

"Ferropaper" created for microelectronics

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

Creating and Registering a Trademark

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.

creating a bluetooth dongle...?

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.

Waiting for my iRobot Create ...

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.

Creating a handheld Emp device

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 ?
