Library managment system

Hi everyone! In Bosnia & Herzegovina every library still uses old way of managment (paper cards etc). It's kinda sad, because everywhere in schools and city libraries should be computer programs that works as a database and book managment, but they are pretty expensive. I was thinking about making simple program for that use and donate it to schools in my country. I know little bit about programming in C#, I am looking for someone to help me with this project.

CPU Thermal Management?

Hi all. First of all, I am running a Pentium 4 530 at 3.0Ghz. The temperature at FULL load is about 60-70 degreese CELCIUS. The cooler us a .. Rocketfish Universal CPU Cooler.. (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Rocketfish%26%23153%3B+-+Universal+CPU+Cooler/9462609.p?id=1218108988702&skuId;=9462609) I dont know the code so i gave you a loink to it. I plan to upgrade to a Corsaire H50 to overclock. But first, I want to get my temps with this heatsink under control. I think it's the thermal compound... It's not applied very well..

Music Managment Soloution ?

Hello Ok, i have a problem. My iTunes library has 1200 songs in it, not a massive number i know, But the thing is all this music is spread over so many genres and many time periods. Personally i think the way we view music is appalling, iTunes looks like a spreadsheet, my playlists are alphabetical and i cant reorganise them. Its a very boring system and for a creative person its almost impossible to find, group and remember what i like and what i want to listen to. Anyway i cant change that. So my problem is as i have grown up I've been through a number of phases. I used to like rock then heavy metal, briefly pop, then rock and now for the last two years I've been very big on electronic. I love everything about this genre and its grown massively since i have grown up. Now I only like a few of the old rock songs. Its really annoying trying to navigate this library, since all my music is mixed up. ACTUAL QUESTION Do i go through my library and keep all my favorite songs, deleting everything else ? or... Do I keep all the music I don't listen to and invest alot of time into constantly managing the playlists, and never use shuffle ? BONUS QUESTION How do you manage your music, and do you listen to one genre or multiple ? Hopefully soon someone will design a visual, personal way of listening to music, because i'm not an accountant, and my music isn't financial data...

Please Allow Me to (Re)Introduce Myself

Greetings Folks! My name is Randy and I am a "new" member of the Community Management staff. For those of you who have been around a while, you may remember me from my time as serving as the first Community Manager of this website starting in 2007, or from my role as the Technology Editor in 2010, or even as the founder of the Instructables Design Studio back in 2013.  Albeit a lot has changed in my life since I last spent some time hanging out here in the forums - I completed grad school... moved to NYC... decided to get married... - my enthusiasm for this website has not.  I'm super-excited to be back in the role of community manager and more actively participating on the site.  I look forward to getting know everybody new, and catching up with those of you who have also been around forever (lookin' at you Kiteman and Caitlinsdad!) Please let me know if you have any questions or feedback for me.

Managed networking switch question? Answered

I am on the CCNA networking track at my local college, so a friend gave me a managed switch he was about to recycle so that I could play around with it and learn equipment that wasn't Cisco.  He said that a few ports were bad, but other than that the switch was fine.  When I power it on, the self-check light starts blinking, along with the red fault light.  I assume that is because of the bad port(s).  It does not output anything at all to putty... even during boot.  I've tried pressing the clear button and the reset button, but nothing changes. The switch is a HP Procurve 2424M.  Does anyone have a suggestion of something else I could try? Thanks!

managing tags in image library

While writing an instructable I was uploading picture using the new uploader (is it still new if it's older than 6 months?). Before clicking upload I used the tag files as and input my info. I have found 2 issues with this style of upload. I'd like some feedback. 1) I see the benefit of tagging uploaded photos and the aid in searching. But, is there any plans to offer a folder based system to he image library? Not all the files I upload to this site are relevant enough to include in the tagging section. As far as I've tested, not tagging a file results in the file only being viewable in the 'All' category. If you upload more than 50 pictures you'll be searching for a while to find it again later. I've been using an ad hoc method of using underscores to keep files organized. (ex. of tags: _discussion, _forums, etc. And for hyphenated or 2-word projects, tagging jello_brains or joining words like jellobrains). This is really so the drop-down menu isn't cluttered with all kinds of one-off keywords. Is if there is a folder-based system to use/search our library that isn't reliant on keywords. Which made me think of something else. 2) After re-uploading the photos again with the underscores in the right places (for my own sanity of keeping things where I can find them). I tried deleting the now-redundant files under the old tags. I successfully deleted the files under the tags, but couldn't remove the tag. I had not started writing the instructable yet or identified any keywords anywhere else outside of the upload editor. Is there a method to remove redundant or erroneously-named tags to files? Is there a way to add additional tags to a file after it has been uploaded?

Setup Cable Management. Convert to Wireless.

A while ago, I dropped my laptop and shattered the screen. Because it was less expensive to just buy an external monitor, I removed the entire upper half of my laptop and am using the external monitor. The problem is that this leads to a really clunky setup since I have to connect all of my wires to the laptop base which I'm using as a keyboard. My idea is to instead connect all of the cables to a hub I'd build into my desk, and that hub would transmit the signal wirelessly to wireless converter dongles in my laptop's USB ports. Any ideas on how to make this work? Is it even possible? I couldn't find any female Bluetooth adapters. Any advice would be appreciated

Scholarship idea - Automated Store Inventory Manager

The objective of my project would be to use the Create platform as a mobile platform to help manage inventory in a store like Walmart. The concept would be based on RFID. A reader would be mounted on the robot and it will detect passive tags on the products stacked in the shelves. The mobile platform would autonomously wander around the store after hours, collect and collate data and generate a reorder report at the end of its run, which would in turn be transmitted via RF to a PC. Implementation would be carried out such that it could be ported to a real world scenario. Also, it would ensure that all the stacks have been visited during its run.

Has anyone managed to run BOCHS on a PSP SLIM?

The PSP Port of bochs was apparently ported for 1.50 Firmware, and no other, Making incompatible with the modern 5XX Custom Firmware. Does anyone here have experience on this and have you gotten bochs to run and at least got past the BIOS loading part? The reason i am forced to use bochs is because it supports All os'es out there, According to my tests, bochs Should be able to Allocate up to 41.2 MB of RAM on a PSP SLIM, but i can't get bochs to start on my PSP. When i start it it gives me the traditional error(that means that it is only for firmware 1.50) So i installed LEDA It stands for something, supposedly it allows you to run most 1.50 firmware apps on 3++ Firmware. Now it starts, It slowly fades out, like perfect And then after a few seconds it exits, no error, what i suspect being wrong is a configuration file.

How should I manage 8 computers for a small business? Answered

My father's store has eight computers at the moment and management has been a bit, well, annoying. (I'm his IT guy at this point.) When the store only had 3 computer, managing them was as simple as scheduling defrags and virus scans, periodically fixing hardware issues and network problems, and reinstalling XP every few years. They had LogMeIn, which was nice, and helped get the computers back and running quickly. A few years later wiith eight computers, though, It's just too much. The biggest problem I'm facing now is the lack of automation among the different computers software-wise, especially when downloading new software. When installing AVG, I have to do it eight times. Updating LogMeIn? EIGHT FRIGGIN TIMES! I noticed that my entire town's school system's computer' system's IT people's method to manage their thousands of computers was a great approach, (don't mind the apostrophe's,) and I hope to try to apply similar management methods to the store. The thing that I'd really like to do is to have all of the computers, essentially,  be identical. This means, for example, that all user accounts work on all computers, and the hard drives' contents would be identical, other than specific drivers for the different computers. So, where do I start? (I wouldn't mind doing some light programing for that, or, em, scripting would be the term, actually.) I assume I need a server of some sort, probably a logon/PXE/FTP windows server, right? Or would it be simpler if I do the whole thing using Linux? Do I need a specialty program? Should an actual IT guy be hired at this point? Please help.

I think it could be done by combining a magnetic sensor (do you even get them?) with a vibrating device and placing the resulting component into a glove.

I know hardly anything about electronics but I am a quick learner and if you explain well I will remember.

Hard drive won't mount?

So, I've had a toshiba 2.5" SATA 250 GB internal HD for a while now. I got it from an old toshiba laptop. I finally got an enclosure for it, and I plugged it in. windows made the sound it makes when you plug something in, and in device manager the usb port said a usb mass storage device was plugged in, but it didn't show up in my computer, nor did it show up in disk management. I searched the net for hours trying to find the problem, reading about how you might need to assign it a letter in disk management, and other more "grim" outlooks on how it might be dead. I listened to it closely, and heard it making very VERY soft ticking noises at a regular rate. I immediately thought the worst, and came to the conclusion that it was dead. The next day, I decided to take it into school with me, as my teacher was pretty smart when it came to computers, and maybe she could provide the tiniest shred of hope. She asked me to plug it into one of the school's desktops. I plugged it in and...it began running like normal. It showed up  on my computer, and showed the correct disk size, as well as a document I'd put on there long ago. I couldn't believe it!  When I got home, I plugged it into my computer, but surprisingly encountered the same problem. I decided to do a bit of experimenting, and I started plugging it into various computers we had around the house, and lined up all the facts I had: It didn't work on my laptop. (runs windows 7 home premium) It DID work on my mom's laptop. (also runs windows 7 home premium) It didn't work on my old desktop. (runs windows xp home edition, but I don't trust it. It's been acting very weird lately) It DID work on my school's desktop. (runs windows 7 enterprise) It DID work on my sister's laptop. (runs windows 7 home premium) I was stumped, to say the least. Can any of you tell me WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON?!?!?! The strongest lead I have is that it might not be working correctly on my computer because the usb ports can't provide enough power to mount it. But if my laptop can't mount it, why should my mom's or my sisters be able to? Please provide any other theories you may think are plausible too!

In Instructables.com, it would be wonderful if when adding a new instructable to one of our existing collections, our list of collections was displayed sorted by alphabetical order into the sub-menu list used for the choice of the proper collection. Similarly, it would be awesome if the collections was displayed as a list sorted by alphabetical order, when managing our collections in the "Settings" menu. In advance, thank you to the web management team for such great and useful improvements.
