I have been trying toy design a stand much like necropolian's "knex safe gameboy holder" , but I have ran into a brick wall because I have the Pelican 3x battery installed, which makes it considerably thicker, about 1/4 of an inch.Please help!

My laptop just died. I want to build a new one. Pelican case style. I don't want to spend a ton of money on the tft touchscreen deals. I just need a display, preferably 800x600 or better display. I really don't want to have to use a TV out to a portable DVD player. As far as not buying a eee or something similar I work in the oil field so this thing will probably see some pretty crappy conditions.

I found a few of these http://www.alliedelec.com/search/productdetail.aspx?sku=70181130 while salvaging pelican cases. They're really expensive, so I imagine they must be useful for something. Any ideas? Brand/Series : 182 Series Configuration : Toroidal Current, Secondary : 10/5 A Dimensions : 2.27"H×5.06"O.D Frequency : 50/60 Hz Length, Lead : 8 " Mounting Type : Panel/Chassis Number of Outlets : 2 Phase : 1 Power, Rating : 300 VA Primary Type : Dual Standards : UL, CSA, CE Termination : Leadwires Type : Power Voltage, Primary : 117/234 VAC Voltage, Secondary : 30/60 VAC Weight : 5.58 lbs.

There's a possibility that in a few months I'll want to have my netbook while living in a tent for a week, which I can't guarantee against leaking or flooding. Thus, the requirement is basically that the netbook remain dry if wherever it is sitting has an inch or so of water on it. I have a water-resistant neoprene sleeve, but it doesn't seal, so it won't help in submersion. I've considered a Pelican 1080, which would work brilliantly but costs $70 or more, and a large Ziploc-type bag, which can hardly be beat for cost but is rather crude and doesn't offer the same level of protection. I suppose I'm looking for options somewhere between the two. The netbook is 10.25" x 7" x 7/8"-1 3/8", but something that would let me fit the power brick in too would be great.

Hi all, I have a client asking for a quote on creating a "time lock safe". It is a 6" x 13" x 15" portable safe (the ref pic they sent looks like a Pelican case). They would like to hand these out to their clients as a "brand-building experience " (or something like that lol). The box unlocks after a month or so and the client gets to keep whatever gift is inside. I have been looking into it and the longest delay I can find on commercial time locks is about 10 days. I imagine this is because the battery could die after that time? Anyway, just wanted to reach out to the community and see if anyone has attempted anything like this or has any suggestions about how to approach the build. I'm currently looking into builds like this: https://www.viralsciencecreativity.com/post/arduino-rfid-solenoid-lock But with the capability to stay activated for several months. Ok, thanks a bunch! Damian

Thursday: AWESOME DAY!Thursday was just AWESOME! So basically, I learned how to use the Laser cutter today, and cut out THE FIRST INSTRUCTABLES BADGE EVER!(pic after post)After, I worked with Noah on Project X a whole little bit more, and we got it working, baby!I'm excited to see this thing go for real! But seriously, I can't tell you what it is, yet...Today was also the first day that I really got used to COREL draw, which enabled me to make most of the templates for everyone's badges, which I think are all pretty awesome. Everyone's got a customized "logo" and their username on the badge, which makes every Instructables badge original and personalized. Unfortunately, I didn't have time today to etch all of the badges, so that'l just have to wait until tomorrow.Later in the afternoon, Star asked me if I wanted to go sailing, to which I responded "What?" After I agreed to spontaneously go sailing with her and Tim, she brought me outside, where I learned that we were fixing up Tim's old outrigger canoe that he tried to sail to Cuba in. Tim, Star, and I were all working on the outrigger; lashing a makeshift trampoline on with bike innertubes... actually, most of the frame was held together with bike innertubes, including the rudder. Everyone was skeptical about us actually launching at all, assuming that we wouldn't launch in the dark of the night. Although, lucky for us, we were all "crazy" enough to launch in the dark. We geared up in fleeces, windbreakers, and life vests and hauled the outrigger out by hand (it was on castings), and launched it right next to Squid Labs. At first, Tim sailed us out of "port" (in the lagoon) and out into the Bay. It was spectacular. The moon, the stars, the SF skyline, it was all beautiful. Tim told us of his experiences on the outrigger while he was sailing back from almost Cuba, and proceeded to teach us more about boats in general. He then let Star take over the rudder and sail, while he lay down on the main hull. I was lying down on the makeshift trampoline, an old stretcher, by the way. We watched the stars over our heads, and, at first, the occasional passing of a brown pelican. Eventually, we came pretty close to "pelican island," a protected breeding ground for the brown pelican. Yet, the night was still young. We continued to listen to Tim speak about sailing, occasionally contributing to the conversation as well. It was all fascinating, not only what he told us, but the fact that the source of his knowledge was primarily himself. The other amusing part of the entire moonlit ride was the fact that Tim built the outrigger from essentially scratch, and most of it was lashed together with innertubes. Simply amazing. Eventually, I was given the opportunity to take control of the beautifully made outrigger canoe, and sailed us back from the bay, back into the lagoon, and back onto land. The whole trip was a once in a lifetime experience, although I hope I do get to go on a similar one soon enough. Thank you so much, Tim, for taking me out onto the bay, and thank you so much Star, for asking me if I wanted to go sailing in the first place. By the way, we got back to Squid at around 10:00, I believe, which was again, pretty late for a workday ;)I packed up my things and Tim/Star drove me home.That was pretty much it for that awesome day. Quite possibly the best day in the duration of this entire Internship.Cheers,-Muffinator

I started working with sketch up about 3 months ago, since then, I've been converting my 2 designs into 3D models. www.conceptships.org/viewtopic.php This the link to Concept Ships.com, where I have my 2D and some of my 3D designs posted. Other link: www.conceptships.org/viewtopic.php . List: -- 1.) Convoy front isometric -- 2.) Convoy close one- General Frigate -- 3.) Convoy close two- Heron II with container -- 4.) Convoy close three- side -- 5.) Convoy rear -- 6.) Heron Front iso (the thing below is the container) -- 7.) Heron Back iso -- 8.) Heron front -- 9.) Transport front iso -- 10.) Transport back iso -- 11.) Transport bottom -- 12.) Transport turret -- 13.) Dropship front -- 14.) Dropship Weaponry -- 15.) Dropship rear -- 16.) Life support pod front -- 17.) Life Support pod back -- 18.) OH SANP!!! Instructables HQ is under attack!!! Ship explainations:: -- CCM-21b "Heron II" - UH-60 of this faction - Can be used as a gunship, APC, fighter - bomber, transport, or ECM/ Support, depending on the module. - The cargo module (below craft) can be load with anything from missles, to bombs, to twin 30mm gating guns (personal favorite). - Carries two (pilot, co-pilot/ gunner). - VTOL - Basically my spin on the Pelican from Halo (hopefully it doesn't get shot down as much) LSPS II "Messiah" (life Support pod) - This is the generic life support pod. Similar to halo, but no re-entry... we all saw how reliable that was. - Holds 6 people (pilot, 5 auxillery) - supports 6 for up to 2.5 weeks. - Has a powerful SOS beacon. - Used by military and civilian. - Launch method: launched from ship by air rushing from the pod's chamber and conventional thrust (Fuel + oxidizer). All ships were designed and 3D- ified by me... google earth was used in the ibles HQ screenshot
