How to send a gift to another kid in school without actually giving it to them? Answered

OK. So I have a box, a little bigger than a piece of paper. I want to give said box to somebody in 6th period on the last day of school. I have 5th period with said somebody, and they are usually pretty much last out of class. I want to give this box to them, but not actually be there, and I want it to be the end of the day. My original idea was to stuff it in their band locker... But... We won't be using those for the rest of the year. Then I thought, what if I was to beat said somebody out of class, run to their sixth period, and tell the teacher they left it in another class, all in time to make it out without them seeing me? I would probably have a timeframe of less than a minute to talk to this teacher, but I don't know... That would be cutting it pretty close, and what if they were the first out of the class then? Then I would be screwed. I may be able to convince a teacher to help me out, like maybe hold said somebody back on the last day to give me more time. I don't know. Any ideas?

Glowforge - Anyone got their laser delivered?

I was playing with the tought of getting one of these fance Glowforge lasers on day... So I was watching their Kickstarter campaign and some related forums for the development and what's happening. Right now it seems Glowforge overestimated their capabilities in several areas. Supporters from the first days are still waiting for their machines, those few claiming that they already got one complain about ongoing issues and a lack of support. Since they also sponsored a contest here not so long ago I was wondering if anyone actually got their machines delivered and would be able to provide some first hand feedback?

An engineer in Cornwall delivered his baby son after watching an instructional video on YouTube.Marc Stephens watched the videos as a precaution when his wife Jo started to feel some discomfort.Four hours later, his wife went into labour and started giving birth before an ambulance could arrive at their home in Redruth.

How to configure LM317T to deliver 5 amps?

Hi guys, I'm new to the site. I wonder if someone could help me resolve my problem. Well, I'm trying to build a Laptop AC Adapter, but I can't get these components right now: -A Transformer -A voltage regulator other than LM317T and I have no experience with other ICs. So I'm using a DC to DC converter. The input power supply is a Z12 Lexmark printer AC adapter. It gives a DC output current of 830mA under 30 volts (actually it's 37.5 volts, I've checked this with my multimeter). However, the output I would like to get is 4-5 amps under 19.5 volts. I would like to mention that I've already given it a try. But the output current I've got wasn't enough to feed the laptop. I've used an LM317T and adjusted the voltage with a 6.6k resistor and a 47k potentiometer down to 19.5 volts. If there is a way to boost up the current with a joulethief or using a set of transistors or parallels LM317Ts, please tell me. Also, I hope that you give me the part number of all the components to match up with the LM317T because I must use this type of regulator. Thanks for your help and please consider my situation.

Raspberry pi Portable: One battery for screen and rasp? How?

I'm trying to make a Portable Raspberry with an old laptop screen. My doubt is if I should rearrange the battery to deliver ~5V to the raspberry and use a boost converter (XL6009E1) to deliver ~9V to the LCD driver, or if I should make the battery pack deliver between 9 and 12V, and power the LCD driver directly, and use the boost converter to step down the voltage to the raspberry. Thanks Guys ;)

Electricity over IP

This is not really a new concept (first published in 2002), but one to mull over :-) Electricity over IP (EoIP, pronounced "yoyp") is a proposed scheme for delivering electric power via IP (Internet protocol). EoIP was developed to eliminate the unnecessary redundancy inherent in maintaining separate distribution networks for electricity and the Internet. The technology could be especially beneficial in remote areas with Internet kiosks but without electricity.The architecture for delivering EoIP is known as MPLampS (Mostly Pointless Lamp Switching). Electricity is digitized and encapsulated in discrete packets. According to the IETF's marketing segment, "MPLampS has the potential to dramatically lower the price, ease the distribution and usage, and improve the manageability of delivering electricity." Electricity over IPThe IETF Network Working Group described EoIP in RFC 3251, published on April 1, 2002. April 1 is also sometimes known as "April Fools' Day."

Small, Secret script or utility to force or track a "delivered"or "read" response for an email recipient.

Good day! I am SO fed up for bad service and people that clam they "have not received your email enquiry, instruction etc" i am looking for some pointers to write a script, utility using some common event handler that will run automatically when a remote user (recipient) receives, scroll past or preferably mark a message as unread and deliberately saying "no" to a request for a delivery or read receipt message to be send back to me (sender address). It is just dishonest and I hate it with all my being. I have a little basic programming  knowledge in C++ and can help myself in most things, maybe even VB. I just need some pointers how to go about, what and how to use a remote event on the target computer or even better track the mail from server to server and maybe give the most recent "status" to show as prove if someone pulls scumbag on me again. Please, please, please... Deon  :)

Can an SD card port provide USB power?

I have a device that's designed to get its power from a USB port, but where it mounts there is no port available.  However, there is a fullsize SD card slot.  From what I can tell it *appears* I could rig up an adapter that delivers power to the device through that card slot, but am I reading this correctly?  And more importantly, would this deliver as much power as a USB port? Thanks!

Build a camcorder battery, cheap. Or a power plug for an existing battery pack, like a cordless drill.

I need a battery, hacked or built, that delivers between 12-15v, for a camcorder that uses 18W then running. The longer the battery delivers the power, the better. Big thing? The battery has to be cheap - I'm putting the kit together on NO money - and easy. My electronics skills are limited to soldering wires on speakers and phone plugs. Did I mention, the battery should be cheap? I mean, really cheap? Oh, and suggestions can include jury-rigging a plug for a power-tool battery that I can then wire into a cable terminating in a 4-pin XLR power plug. As long as everything is free or cheap. Yeah, I know. It ain't easy being a movie maker. Potentially. Ideas can be sent to gwnwrite@mts.net.

How can I make a solar charger for extended battery/capacitor life?

I want to build a solar charger that could keep a rechargeable, say, CR2032 battery always trickle charged without damaging anything. I want to make this circuit as simple as possible. I want to just hook up a solar panel, with an operating voltage of 3V that delivers 1mA, to a rechargeable CR2032 that was in-use. Assuming the solar cell was delivering power for 12 hours in the day, would what could go wrong? I'm sure there could be some danger, but I don't know enough. Do I need a charge regulator? Can I charge the cell and also consume power from it? If it's forgotten about for a year, will the battery explode? Can this be done with a capacitor? Can I keep trickle charging a capacitor that is attached to say a heat sensor which uses very little power?
