Prepaid phone hacks?

Ok guys (and all you female hacks out there) I've got a question that I need help answering. Does anyone know if it would be possible to completely wipe a phones programming to be able to install an operating system on it ? The phone that I'm working with is a virgin mobile prepaid Super slice that got washed in the washing machine and is unable to be reactivated( trust me I've tried everything!) I would probably have to find a pretty darn small operating system, because I know that even damn small linux is too large and won't work. The phone is completely intact and all of the features work (including the camera ) it's just that I can't activate it so it's prety much useless unless I can turn it into some kind of micro-small-computer of some sorts. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. and just so you have a bit of info, the phone I believe has somewhere in the neighborhood of 1/4 of a megabyte of memory and an unknown amount of ram. Thanks in advance for any replies.

Slicing a hockey puck into discs (vulcanized rubber)

I need to slice a hockey puck (1” thick by 3” diameter) into very thin discs (1/16” to 1/32” thick). This can be done... the NHL sells 1/4” puck coasters (see photo). Thinking about a mandolin design where the puck is mounted and the blade moves with my hand in a sled device. Puck rubber is very hard to slice. Thinking of Japanese angled blades (‘7’ shape rather than the American ‘V’ shape). Looked into ice auger blades (for blade thickness and stability). Just about de-gloved my hand with large box-cutter blades (bent as well when cutting the rubber). Any ideas? Raincock@ualberta.ca

Obtaining helical slices from a 3D model

Hey guys, I've begun to work on a volumetric display for a school project like the one in the link at the bottom of this post but I can't figure out a good way to obtain helical slices of the 3D model which I intend to project. I could do it manually by subtracting the "negative" of the helical screen from my model in Solidworks and then take a screen shot, but this would be pretty time intensive since I would need 360 shots(360 2D images from below the model with the screen negative rotated one degree each time). Is there any program out there or add-on for solidworks which could automate this process? Or even a functionality in solidworks that I haven't thought of? Would appreciate any advice you have on this subject. Link To Helical Volumetric Display Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihZ_mJ04U3c

Software for slicing 3d model into layers for printing, cutting and assembly from card, layer by layer

I've been looking for software to slice up some 3d models I've made in 3ds max, and i know there are Pepakura model unfolders but the shapes are quite curved and a pepakura model wouldn't shape up right. So I'm looking for software that can cut a 3d model into variable layer height for printing on card and assembling like a 3d sculpture ( see Darth Vader - http://www.flickr.com/photos/ciberdoc/3895118480/ ). Any ideas?

Topic by Pink_wolf   |  last reply


cardboard 3d models

First, you'd have to be very careful not to cut yourself (a leather glove to hold the piece helps). If you print the pieces for a cardboard model, instead of cutting, it'll look better if the pieces are sliced. These are the steps that I take: 1. After printing the models, I cut the pieces leaving 1/8 to 1/4 white space along the edges. 2 I use 12/24 pack cardboard from soft drinks (the cardboard from hot pockets works also, but its harder to cut) 3. use a glue stick to transfer the pieces to your cardboard and roll any round object to remove any bubbles. 4. when dry use a pair of scissors to cut the pieces. 5. lay the template face down on your material and use a pen to trace the outline. if using cardboard, use a box cutter blade and slice the parts out, slicing to the line of adjacent pieces. For slots, cut the width thru the cardboard, and slice the required length. Use an exact-o knife to cut the ends, flip over and trim. I've built over a dozen models and my three grandchildren love them.

Shortcut issues on iPod Touch

I'm using new iPod Touch to browse the site (yay, Kitewife!), and I've discovered that the "shortcuts" tab doesn't work properly.  As soon as I tap the tab, the drop-down menu appears, but before I can select an option, the page jumps directly to the page for customising that same drop-down menu. This isn't a bug, as such, but it does reduce the functionality of the site on mobile devices, a that's a huge slice of the audience these days, on quite probably a disproportionate slice of the "first visitor" market.

Bacon problem (too dry)? Answered

I have had some trouble cooking bacon. When I bought thick sliced bacon, my roommate stored it in the freezer (I think this was the problem?). The next day I had to moved it down to the normal side, took like 3 days to become pliable. However, when I try to cook it, it become so dry but I don't know why. Here's what I did, I left the slices on the pan (without heat) for 10 mins, then I cooked on medium heat, flipped till they became golden brown, then I pick them up by chopstick and leave it in my dish. First the bacon still have a little grease on it, so it's glossy; but a few moment later, it turn bone dry, no grease, no gloss, no nothing. Can anyone tell what my error was? I'm still new to bacon so sorry. PS: I wasn't able to take any picture cause my roommate ate them all because he was too hungry....

How to Break Solder Tabs On Ni-Cad Battery Pack

So, in a fit of optimism I decided to rebuild a Ryobi One 18v battery pack for my drill. The task seems rather straight forward except that I can't gracefully remove the soldered tabs on top of the batteries that actually make the circuit and connect to the wires.  In the past, I would have removed something like these tabs by either holding the soldering iron to them to melt the solder, slicing the solder with a razor or a combination of the two. These tabs, however, are seriously attached. They won't pry or slice off and the metal of the tab begins to melt before the solder does if I try the iron. I think anymore heat will damage the battery themselves.  Now, it's been a while since I did any electronics work but after a couple of tries I remembered which end of the soldering iron to pickup. I don't think I missed anything. It just seems like these tabs aren't attached with run of the mill solder.  Has anyone had this problem (and found a solution) or am I just missing something blindingly obvious?

does someone want to make a tobacco shredder?

Hi Guys, one of my new hobbies is going to be growing tobacco, I know how to grow and cure it but what I need is a decent method to shred it. I can slice it with a knife but the strands turn out too big for hand rolling, there are commercial products around which can shred tobacco but the best around for the home grower which doesnt cost the earth only cuts to about 1.5mm now what I need is 0.5mm. I was thinking of was to combine 2 ideas, this one which seems to be based on the old victorian tobacco shredders http://www.howtogrowtobacco.com/forum/cpg14x/albums/userpics/10155/normal_b_processequipcutter.JPG with this one, which uses a nice method of keeping the tobacco compressed and moviing it slowly with out chopping your fingers off. http://lh5.ggpht.com/_2A4aHZ23tp4/S5P-L7KOxaI/AAAAAAAABnA/KqWk0ZoLf90/s640/loaded%20shredder%201%202010_03050006.JPG the above used a handle which turns a theaded spindle which pushs the block along by a fraction, you then use a knife to take a slice off the end. now there is an automated one someone made in new zealand which looks awesome, this also uses a thread but they have put a ratchet spanner on the spindle so it automatically moves it along. So does anyone fancy this as a project? it would have to be easy to make, made from materials which are easy to come by for normal people, it must be cheap and it must be able to produce a really fine cut at least 0.5mm good enough for hand rolling tobacco.
