Matching impedance from ear out to line on soundcard?

I'm transferring old audio cassettes from an old cd-deck without line-out, so I have to use the ear-out for the signals to my soundcard's line-in connection. I am educated in electronics as Raidio Offiser, but that was in 1976. I'm also a hamraidio-operator since 1980 so I have made many transformers with toroids, building transmitters. Well that is a long time ago so it would be nice to taking up the hobby with building electronic devices again. I am from Norway and we don't have a lot of companies like Radio Schack. I don't now any now. In 1980 it was lot of dealers, but after Internet came, all uses that to communicate. Best regards from Thor Andersen Drammen Norway. thor.3043@getmail.no

restoring ovalia egg chair

I am trying to restore an original thor larsen ovalia egg chair for my game room.  i have stripped out all of the old worn out fabric from the interior down to the bare rough fiberglass.  i'm trying to adhere fabric to this rough fiberglass using spray adhesives with little success so far.  i have tried using 3m super 77 adhesive and also misty foam and fabric adhesive.  my test piece of fabric pulled off easily after letting the adhesive set up for over 24 hours.  i'm wondering if anyone has some ideas on this process of adhering fabric to fiberglass that i may be missing.  i've looked for info on restoring a piece like this one and have come up short so far.  so any info or ideas of things to try would be welcome. thanks!

poor thumbnail quality

It seems like thumbnail quality is a lot worse than it could be.  it makes it a lot harder to appreciate the project listings, also these thumbnails show up on the front page of the site which doesn't seem to reflect well on the quality of the site and project. i took a look at some of these and the original photos that are perfectly good and sharp at full size are yielding blurry thumbnails.  i played with some sharpening options in imagemagick.  it seems like the site does get better image compression from the blurry thumbnails, but i think it goes to far!  as an example look at this project: https://www.instructables.com/id/The-Mighty-Thor-Costume/ the quality of the lead full size image is just fine.  the 75x75 thumbnail is 1.3k but the quality is really poor (see attached).  i re-thumbnailed  used a basic unsharp mask (should be available in any image processing package), and i get a far better image (also attached).  the new one is 2.5k - but really i think it is worth it.

Halloween Easy Costumes Winners

First of all - congratulations to all the finalists! Our Halloween Easy Costumes finalists shared some absolutely fantastic costumes! Here at Instructables we are always impressed with how the simplest of materials can be turned into the most amazing Halloween costumes. Not only were our finalists super creative and resourceful, their costumes were well documents and could easily be recreated on a small budget and with very little time. We loved reading all the tips and tricks for getting a costume just right, substituting materials and customization. Picking winners was challenging, but we know you'll be just as impressed as we are with them! And so, without further ado... FIRST PRIZE Composer Busts by davidandora. This costume is not only incredibly easy to do, but it's an original concept and looks fantastic. Another fun attribute is that it looks even better when grouped together, so this costume is perfect for you and your friends! SECOND PRIZE (alphabetical order) HAWKEYE. by Mr.Sanchez How to make a Thor Costume by The Rambler Minecraft Steve Costume by pjkumpon pjkumpon's Minecraft Steve Costume was one of the best we've got on Instructables - looks amazing and the finishing touches like adding velcro to keep the head on straight or adding foam for comfort truly made it a top notch costume! Hawkeye and Thor used hot glue and craft foam in fabulous and inventive ways - both costumes are definite proof that those two materials can make great costume armor. THIRD PRIZE (alphabetical order) Duct Tape TMNT Shredder Costume for $8.11 by imamathguy Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader (Kid-friendly) by eric3dee Make an award-winning costume in one night with packing tape and newspaper by morganlemae Mr. Fredrickson from UP - Halloween costume, 8mo+ by T_Albrecht YOSHI HOODIE by jtrask1 Our third prize winners really shined when it came to using household and ready made materials! Mr. Fredickson's PVC pipe walker was perfect - and we loved the idea of adding extra weight to it to help with stability. And the sweater vest and bow tie were too cute! Shredder's cardboard and duct tape armor came together quick and was ingenious - the duct tape is a great substitute for metal. The Yoshi Hoodies were a great project - we loved how the author took a simple piece of clothing and was able to make a cute costume that looked great and was easy to wear out trick or treating! morganlemae's tree costume shows the potential of packing tape in costume making - I can't wait to see if it spawns more packing tape costumes. And last but not least, the creative use of materials like ace bandages and a milk jug for the Luke Skywalker and Vader costume was really impressive - not to mention the absolutely adorable photos! Congratulations to all that entered! It was so much fun reviewing all the entries. Our Halloween contests make us realize we truly have the most creative and expressive community on the internet. You are all amazing - thank you for sharing with us. :D
