Dark Side Of The Moon? Answered

I have been taught that we always see the same side of the moon.  The other half is called the dark side of the moon.  Is this dark side really dark, or is it really bright when the moon is a new moon?  I know this is a stupid question, but I just wan't to clarify with so many dark sides.

The Dark Side of Crafting?

I was recently sent this update from UC Berkeley and Indiana University, and thought I would pass it along.  I have never had a brush with the "Dark Side" of crafting they describe here.  Have you? Do you sew clothes, print posters, or shop for craft supplies only to realize your craft has negative effects, e.g., on the consumer or society at-large, morally, socially, and/or legally? Do you see a “dark side” to craft? If so, UC Berkeley and Indiana University researchers conducting a research project on handcraft and computing would love to talk to you. We will conduct interviews by instant message, email, phone, or in person within the next few months. To help us with our research, please email Daniela at daniela@ischool.berkeley.edu, Jeff at jbardzel@indiana.edu, or Shaowen at selu@indiana.edu.   image blatantly stolen from pirateluv which just has so many other cool things on it too.

Three Sided Truth

Global Consciousness Project – Long Term ExperimentI've been watching the GCP for over 4 years. I would like to create a permanent visual installation based on acquired data from the EGG database. The installation will be a tetrahedron, displaying past, present, and the "so-called" probable data. No explanation of what the display portrays. Mysterious as it will be, time and historical data will stir subconscious minds to recognize patterns. I believe this is the perfect device that will develop questions within closed minds and thus in time, answers.Read up on GCP here: Princeton GCPI have a physical design in mind for the installation. I would like to lead the creative task force for creating such a device. I'm wondering if I can find people here that would be interested in helping with the internal electrical and mechanical engineering that will be needed to operate the device. Serious minds needed only. This is a long-term project possibly taking several months to a year to complete. Funding will be provided once the preliminary concept is thoroughly defined. I would like to see that these devices are scattered across the globe and placed in highly visible areas.The domain name ThreeSidedTruth.com has been registered for this project. I hope to find some interested minds.threesidedtruth@gmail.com~ Demannu

New Side-Arm DMTD (name pending)

Well some of you might have heard dsman and I are making a new side arm mainly by combining our side arms and then adding even more features. Some things we (well I) plan on -Stronger and just as reliable as DMS -Small and as comfortable as TDS -Removable magazine -Slide -A new feature I'm working on. Adjustable site for aiming at distances. So yeah we decided to team up because I honestly just got tired of competing with dsman. I have some questions for you though What ammo do you want us to use? We are leaning towards dark greys. Also what other details do you want? Such as what kind of trigger (true obviously) and also do you want it to be detailed like the gun down below or do you want it to be straight forward like the TDS? Give me any other features you want. This gun isn't what we are working on...yet. We might use it as a base. For anyone curious this gun is my newest version of what used to be the D. Falcon from the video comparing our side arms. It was what I was working on to beat both of them. This is mainly for the concept removable magazine I'm working on.

Dutchj's experimental K'nex side-arm

Having finished my rifle and finding myself with nothing to do ( Don't worry, it will still be posted this week ), I thought I'd finally have a go at side-arms. So I built the TDS2, and hated it ( I'm going to get bashed for that, I know it ). I decided to have a look at some others like Oompa-Loompa's unofficial side-arm, and the one Bakenbitz posted a picture of on KI some time ago. Afterwards, I came up with this. This side-arm is powerful because the magazine is at the front and the trigger is at the very back. It's also kept reasonably small because the magazine is inside the handle.It fires grey connectors. It's a bit clumsy, but it is only a first version. I can probably make it a bit smaller and more user friendly if I remake it. Tell me what you think, and as always, constructive criticism is more then welcome

Laptop charges only tipped on side?

Greetings!  I'm in need of some laptop power help. About ten days ago, my 1-year-old HP Pavilion G7-2017 laptop stopped charging when plugged to the AC adapter.  I've googled this issue a bunch and have only come up with wobbly power seats, battery issues, or with people who have finicky adapters that have to be moved to get a charge.  None of these are applicable to my situation.   Currently, my laptop (not the charger) has to be moved or tipped to get a charge from the old AC adapter but runs great on battery power once charged and, if stood on its side, will connect to the power supply without the battery installed.  Moving the laptop breaks the power connection, though, and shuts the computer down if the battery is not in it. In fussing with it, I discovered it would work when either: A) it was tilted totally on its left side (dc connector is on the right side, so cord would then stick out the 'top') B) slight pressure was put on the underside just in front of the battery where the RAM is located.  Finally, it stopped registering the AC adapter with either the orange or white LED and I couldn't get it charged so I did the next logical thing and took the whole thing apart.  I thought because of the nature of how it was charging and finicky it might be a loose connection to the power supply internally.  I took everything in the laptop out and double checked all the connections on power, motherboard, etc -- nothing is amiss.  The power cord slot inside is secure and functioning, RAM is seated correctly, etc.   Put it all back together and still couldn't get it to charge so I took it to Best Buy to borrow an appropriate AC Adapter today.  This is what happened: 1.  With the battery in, I plugged in new power cord while laptop was sitting neatly on the countertop (not tilted) and it immediately registered with an orange LED light at the point of entry for the power connection without having to manipulate or tip the laptop, which is what I had to do with the old adapter, ergo I thought AHA! It MUST be the AC Adapter!  2.  Started it up and got three long beeps.  Checked BIOS records for HP Pavilion G7 2017 and learned it could be hardware related.   3.  Replaced the original 4GB RAM with borrowed Geek Squad matching test RAM and tried to power again. 4.  Success!  New RAM and borrowed adapter did the trick, assumed it must be RAM issue.  5.  Bought replacement 4gb RAM stick, installed, rebooted to double check while it was plugged into borrowed AC Adapter -- everything booted fine.   THEN: 6.  Got home and plugged in my old AC adapter but no orange LED to tell me it was registering.   7.  Tipped laptop on its side and voila!  New RAM plus Old AC Adapter still had to be tilted on its side.  8.  Put old RAM back in and tried again; same result -- old AC adapter only registers in the power connection when the laptop is placed on the left side with cord sticking out the 'top' or when lightly pressed on the underside of the center of the laptop, though this latter is incredibly finicky.   The fact that a borrowed adapter worked fine but this old adapter only works when the laptop is tilted is what keeps me thinking it's AC Adapter itself but could still be a connection issue or other hardware issue.  Am I totally off base?  For what it's worth, I've ordered a new AC adapter to try it out again.   Any thoughts out there?   Thanks! Erica

How should I make a right side wing using only the left side?

I have a little ceramic figurine. IT'S LEFT wing (opposite of one shown) is broken and has been lost. Now, I want to somehow use IT'S RIGHT wing (pictured) to make another left wing for it, through casting, molding, clay baking, using foam or whatever. I don't have access to anything high tech. Basically foam, clay, etc. but no molten metals or anything. Any ideas? I mean, it would seem simple enough to just make a mould with the existing wing and use it as a mold to make a new one, but the wings are obviously mirror images of each other, so not only are they on the opposite side, they're sort of reflected. Here is the wing I have, I need to create the other. Thanks,

Arm tendinitis, arthritis of the elbow....any advice ?

Hi all, I have been struggling lately with two problems:   #1: tendinitis of my lower right arm and wrist #2: arthritis of the right elbow.  The doc believes both are aggravated by overuse of the mouse (actually resting my hand on it an entire work shift, plus the time I spend on line at home).  The first thing I must do, of course, is unlearn the behavior and remove my hand when I am not actually USING the mouse.  This hasn't been very successful so far.  Does anyone have any further suggestion on how to "rest" the arm and still be able to go to work and work a bit at home?  Anything serious will be considered.

How can i convert the side windows in my truck shell to be side doors? More in details...?

I have an Innovation truck shell, it is a discontinued brand (came with my truck when i bought it) so no truck shell people want to work on it (a lot of them seem to have the policy that they won't work on shells they didn't install. My original plan was to find and have installed windoors, then have aluminum water jet cut to either cover or replace the glass if i couldn't just get them premade as metal or fiberglass doors. There was a video from germany that had the installation of what i was looking for, but nothing local, and i couldn't find them to buy doors. i am concerned if i can't find them and go to my secondary plan, to piano hinge and attempt to gas shock my waterjetted pieces and fabricate doors to fit in the frames, will leak and not work well, the frames aren't made for that kind of movement and may fail. i know i will probably have to cut my shell if there aren't indoors that fit my window holes. not sure where to start or go with this, any advice or strategy by  a knowledgeable person appreciated, Thanks!- Subconscionaut
