LOST FANS

This forum is all about LOST, if you don't know what LOST is, it's a TV show! Now, it is not just any TV show but it happens to be the best TV show ever made. I know it's a little off topic for this site but I really do not care seeing as how many people like LOST. If you want to start watching LOST and have never seen an episode before...or maybe you have seen an episode or two...or maybe you missed an episode...they can all be found at www.abc.com just click FULL EPISODES at the top of the page and when the new screen comes up look to the left and click the season you want to watch and the episode!

Lost In Space

The brothers finished setting up, grabbed their head-sets, twiddled the knobs on their portable receivers, hit the record button and listened."Come in" "come in" "come in" "Listen! Come in!" "Talk to me!" "I am hot! I am hot!" "Come in!" "What? Forty-five?" "What? Fifty? Yes." "Yes, yes, breathing." "Oxygen, oxygen!" "I am hot. This is this dangerous?"The brothers looked nervously at one another. They only fully understood the Russian later when their sister translated for them, but the desperation in the woman’s voice was clear. Its an extremely interesting read about Russia's missing cosmonauts...LINK

Lost in translation

This is just plain funny. http://tashian.com/multibabel/This website basically takes any inputted english phrase and translates it back and forth through 5 languages using babelfish. The results are often peculiar, if not downright stupid.Some examples:I'm a little tea pot, short and stout.translates toThey are a small POTENTIOMETER, short circuits and a beer of malzes of the tea.a cookie is just a cookie, but fig newtons are fruit and cake.translates tobiskuit has expert of biskuit, but Newton von Fig is fruit and hardens.When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that's amore.translates toIf the moon fixes its eye like a great vector of Fleischpie of the vector of Pizzapie, is the lover.And my personal favourite so far:I think therefore I amtranslates to:Task that is therefore

Lost Foam?

Hi guys, I've been messing about with lost foam aluminium casting here in the UK. I've tried packing expanded polystyrene, and Jablite but they seem really difficult to get a good finish on the foam patterns. I want to be able to machine them, or use them in a basic foam lathe. I know that in the States they have a denser finer grained insulation material (blue and pink in colour). These both seem to be better for obtaining surface finish. I've tried to Google the stuff over here but it seems to be silly prices. Does anyone have any links to UK sites that sell a similar product? I was wondering if the harder stuff that you saw up and stick between the rafters for loft conversions would work as this seems a much denser fine grain foam to me. Any ideas or advice would be appreciated.

Mr.Common sense lost

No common sense these days, eh? London Times Obituary of the late Mr. Common Sense 'Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: Knowing when to come in out of the rain; why the early bird gets the worm; Life isn't always fair; and maybe it was my fault. Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge). His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition. Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an Elastoplast to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion. Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims. Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault. Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement. Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason. He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, I Want It Now, Someone Else Is To Blame, and I'm A Victim. Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.

Lost item finder?

Is there some instructable for this? Basically, just a penny sized sticker that can be placed on any item. If lost, then a device could easily scan for them (5 feet radius range, maybe) I've searched for systems like this, but they're all expensive.  It should be pretty simple, maybe passive RFID tags, and some kind of device that detects if it is closer or farther. I've checked on reader, but any cheap ones are in the $160 range and 3 inch distance. Long distance ones are like 500 and above. Except readers aren't really necessary. There isn't really any information that needs to be read. Just a way to tell if the signal is closer. Something like that could probably made in the $20 range but i wouldn't know I'm asking cause I lost the memory card for my camera (case and all). It was sitting on a desk, then it wasn't. It had some vacation photos that i hadn't transfered to PC yet. It was a grueling search, and I couldn't find it.  At some point in our lives, everyone needs something like that. Losing something important sucks, expensive or not.

Competitor's lost touch?

So I've known this for awhile and to be honest it doesn't bother me to badly but my Zip series is much more popular than my Competitor series. The first Zip has more views than my first Competitor which has been out for months, but I do realize the philosophy out with the old, in with the new so I could see the original Competitor collecting dust, after all, it doesn't even have a mag lock! Anyway the main reason I'm starting this forum topic is to find out what you like about the Zip series. Has it been the concepts I have been applying in each pump action model? Was it the styling, which was more spontaneous and sci-fi? Maybe it was a hidden preference for the ergonomics of pump action. The truth is, I don't know and I want you knexer's to tell me what you like or dislike about my Zips and Competitors. Using this information I will be able to build a better Competitor or maybe just refocus on building Zip4.

The Lost Ring ARG

We just sat in on our friend Jane McGonigal's SXSW talk on how life could be far more awesome and rewarding were it organized more like alternate reality games, and were lucky enough to get a peek into her new game, The Lost Ring.The concept is pretty neat: Ariadne woke up blindfolded in a corn maze outside of Johannesburg with no memory, Olympic-calibur athletic skills, and a tattoo bearing the words "trovu la ringon perditan" -- Esperanto for "find the lost ring." She sets out to find what is happening to her, and discovers others with similar stories.There's already a wiki, and the game will almost certainly spawn offshoot projects all over the net and physical world.Background info:The Lost Ring is a global alternate reality adventure created in partnership between McDonald's, AKQA and Jane McGonigal. Designed in collaboration with the IOC, The Lost Ring invites players from across the globe to join forces online and in the real world, as they investigate forgotten mysteries and urban legends of the ancient games. The Lost Ring recognizes McDonald's historic sponsorship of the Olympic Games, and brings the spirit of the Games to people around the world.It started a week ago and should run for around 6 months. Go check it out, and join up!

Gamings Lost Gems

There are many games out there that have seemed to escape the public eye and has slipped under a sea of top-tier titles and remain unknown to many unfortunate gamers out there.

Advice on lost wax casting

I am looking at the cheapest way to begin casting pewter with the lost wax casting or with creating rtv silicone molds and it looks like dental wax is generally the same as jeweller's wax. I would like to know if this product looks suitable for carving for lost wax casting: http://dentala2z.co.uk/PRE10379/en I would of course melt it to make blocks to carve from. It looks like it would do the job, carving wax seems to be really expensive in whatever form. Im also looking at using silicone and corn starch. thank you

HTML formatting lost on Instructable

I use html to format my list of parts into a table, like this page.  Recently the formatting was somehow lost on this page which is a bummer because it took a while to create the html.  The page was fine for at least a year.  I don't know exactly when the html was lost but I suspect it happened a few weeks ago (October 12th) when I edited a different page on the same instructable.  It's possible that I edited the Instructable while my Pro membership was expired.  I definitely did not edit the page with the html formatting. OS: Linux Ubuntu 14.10 Browser: Chromium 37.0.2062.120 Is there any chance of reverting that page (or even the Instructable) back to a date before the HTML was stripped out?

Career paths. I'm lost.

Hi, I'm lost, and I was wondering if you could help me. I feel stuck in life, and I've decided that I'm going to put my life into action with as much vigor as possible.  I've decided to start with finances and education.  I've got the finances part figured out, but I have no idea on education.   I'm twenty years old.  I went to a technical college for Information Technology and Communications Systems, and I left after a year because I was no longer interested, I don't believe I was prepared to take the educational leap (I hindered myself), and I left for a relationship. I don't want to make that mistake again.  Being a maker, what types of possibilities are out there for career paths?  What type of education should I pursue?  How do I make sure that what seems like a great choice doesn't turn out to be a passing fad like my past venture?   I feel as if I've wasted too much time.  I haven't been in high school for three years, and I have nothing to show for it.  I need to get this going as soon as possible.
