Buried at 45 degrees...

As I type, Sir Jimmy Saville is lying in "state" in a golden* coffin in a Leeds hotel. According to his wishes, he will be buried at an angle of 45 in Scarborough, "so that he see the sea". What odd burial wishes do you have? Mine are simple - a cardboard box under an oak or horse-chestnut sapling. BBC Story. Just in case you don't know who Sir Jimmy was. *Golden, but not gold.

Presidential Weirdness

Proving the only thing weirder then presidents are presidential candidates:Dennis Kucinich admitted during a debate that he witnessed and communicated with a UFO. Bill Richardson (Governor of New Mexico) then called for the federal government to "come clean" on UFOs.In vaguely related history, Jimmy Carter was attacked by a swamp rabbit.

Can I tweak, jimmy, hack or reconfigure my Echo Indigo sound card to sound better than it does now?

but I don't know if I'm getting to use all of it's potential. Is there any way to reconfigure, hack, or tweak this thing for my laptop? I mean I thought, from all the good reviews I read, that I'd have the epitome of good, strong bassy sound, but the sound I get is actually weaker than the DFX plugin I installed months after, at one quarter of the price! How do I use all this card's features to their fullest extent? I mean, I listen to a lot of Lounge, downtempo and drum/bass on an XP, so maybe I'm expecting too much, from this laptop card, I don't know. So, please if there's a way to use this thing to full capacity, either by adjusting something on the card or my laptop, let me know! Thanks, Carlton

Which New Zealand coins are best for hammering?

I live in Auckland, New Zealand. This in itself is awesome, but the only problem is that most Instructables like this or this call for American currency, and I seem to be running out of it. My options are to go to America again, or to find an NZ alternative. Obviously the latter is cheaper, so I was wondering which of our coins to use. Anyone?

Looking to pay someone to build one for me immediately. I am very serious about this. I have seen others who have built such a device, but none worthy for sale as of yet.

Power supply for ZVS driver?

I just built a beefed up ZVS driver to handle a large continuous current, however, I now lack a power supply that will allow me to reach its full potential. The biggest thing aside from my variac that I have is two xbox power supplies in series (24V 29A). I would like something around 40-50V with at least 5A. I could rewire a mot which would take a very long time and weigh a lot so if anyone has any schematics or pointers on how to make one electronically it would be much appreciated!

70-100V powered ZVS?

So I was playing around with my ZVS driver and I turned up the variac to 40V, getting roughly 100kV and boom the flyback caught on fire and my ZVS driver fried. So I want to build a new one that could handle around 70-100V input. I know that for higher inputs some component values need to be changed but for voltages that high, I do not know exactly what would need to be changed. I was thinking of using two STY34NB50 MOTFET's, but wasn't sure if they were the right kind.

information being deleted from unpublished instuctable

I am working on a new instructable and I'm almost near the end, each of the steps has a lot of information on it, some that I put up a few moths ago, and all the text from random steps is being deleted. I allowed two people to collaborate on it and Iv'e never had this problem before, I also edited it on two different computers at the same time earlier today which is the same time I noticed this. When I was on he other computer editing an entire step was gone, I assumed it was just the computer because it was DELL and when I got home it was back but other steps were deleted.

iPhone app For Making an Instructable

An idea I have is for an app, for iPhone or Android or both, which is used to make an Instructable. This would mean using the built-in phone camera to take the necessary photos, in order, for each step of the Instructable. Then the user would be able to add text, photo tags, and other things included in the Instructable-making process, without having to transfer their photos to a computer and upload them to Instructables. They would simply upload the finished product directly to the site. I would make this myself, but my knowledge of the required software is very basic. I might be able to do it, as long as I had some help, and information on the formatting used on this site i.e colors, logos, basic layout, etc

A way to step up 30uV-300uV to 1mV+?

So I'm working at a TV repair shop but really we fix and work on almost anything electronic. In this situation we have a NEUROSIGN 100 which is used to tell the surgeon when he's near the nerve, but he needs the voltage spike to be recorded on paper when he touches the nerve. The problem is that the machine only gives out around 30uV-300uV as he is working and the electronic ghraph we have only startes recording at 1mV. We need a way to step up that voltage coming out the machine so that ghraph will record it. We tried a small audio amplifier but that didn't work at all so we're back to the drawing board.
