Looking for a switch, with return to center, like the knob on an RC car remote.

Hello - I am looking for a switch to control volume. Essentially I am looking for a switch like the kind used on RC Cars to control left/right movement. Its the kind of rotary knob that goes two directions with some sort of spring that makes it return to center as off. Anybody know where I can find one? Thanks, -Joe

Cool Tool - Basic Stamp Logic Analyzer

A month or so ago Parallax had their basic stamp logic analyzer on sale for $30, so I picked it up. Its a slick little tool . It is handy to use when testing your wiring and software. If you have a BS2 and see it on sale again over at Parallax check it out. The only downside is the software is windows only, so mac geeks like myself will have to use a VM. -Joe

Stylish birdfeeders - art and function

I came across these stylish birdfeeders via Notcot. Abstract, architecturally minimalist, functional... ... copyable. These are welded and painted steel, and presented as "affordable" (although I think it's a bit cheeky to call a bird table "Cheepie" and then charge $125...) - if you need a new bird feeder, have a look at Joe Papendick's Etsy shop.  If nothing else, you'll get inspriation...

Could a file cabinet be insulated from fire with, say, a fire blanket? Saving money and weight?

File cabinets are increasingly needed by the average Joe in this information age. And fire safe file cabinets are a great protection for hard copy. But they are so expensive and heavy. A 4 drawer will cost at least $1000 and weigh at least 500lbs. I was wondering if anyone has tackled this question.
