Your Username

How did y'all go about coming up with your username? There are (quite) a few out here that just confuse me. Also, if it isn't too much trouble, could y'all give a rebus or some way so we know how to pronounce your names (zachninme)? I got mine from back in 6th grade - my nickname was "Double Stuffed Oreo" (because I am a bit hefty), but everyone who doesn't know me just calls me "Redneck", so I combined the two. I've been using it ever since. So, how about y'all?

Your Art!

I desided I would provide a space for fellow artists in the Instructables community to display, comment on, and discuss their art freely. If you have a website or an art instructable that you want to share, you can post a link to it here. Feel free to post images of your work or discuss about supplies, techniques, etc. This forum is completely open to your art. I had an idea from SacTownSue. You can post your art here, or join this group, creat a topic, and post your art as that topic. This will be much more organised.my website

Your IMO?

I need some opinions and quick before my isp closes for today at 6. After finally being fed up with my modem disconnecting 3 times in a row whilst having my smoke/coffee this morning I finally called my isp up, said my router log says that I'm getting repetive ppp modem signals because the modem keeps disconnecting. Techy said come in and swap your modem in for one of these new ones they apparently just started distributing last week because they're starting up a digital TV service in early 2008 (modem has a 4 port ethernet switch in it for the tv set top boxes). I digress... previous history is that since I've had their service which was supposed to be 3mb (and when I saw the pamplet in the office today it's 5mb now for my service, sweet) but I only see like 1.5mb, sometimes 2mb as seen in the speedtest on their own server: Test starting... Average throughput: 1444 kilobits/sec Total Time: 26128 milliseconds Done. Test starting... Average throughput: 1455 kilobits/sec Total Time: 25932 milliseconds Done. Test starting... Average throughput: 1486 kilobits/sec Total Time: 25386 milliseconds Done. Test starting... Average throughput: 1555 kilobits/sec Total Time: 12135 milliseconds Done. Test starting... Average throughput: 1341 kilobits/sec Total Time: 14065 milliseconds Done. Test starting... Average throughput: 1114 kilobits/sec Total Time: 16929 milliseconds Done. That's only a few of them, I ran like 20 tests just to be sure there were no flukes (I ran off server sites and it was pretty much the same or slower). I had a tech guy come one time when I still had my P2 desktop going and it was doing the same thing (2 years ago?) I showed him on my computer, then he connected his laptop to my modem and on his screen it read 3000mbit/s perfectly (does that ever ever happen?). I think it was setup to do that on his computer or something. Anyways, I'm tired of this shit, new modem isn't making any differences. I was having a problem with it disconnecting, but I haven't had it hooked up long enough to find out if it's still a problem. The nice (and pretty) lady at the desk told me to call back "anytime" if it doesn't work lol. So I'm just sitting here, I still have the test window open on my laptop, should I call them up and complain some more or just forget it and get even more depressed about it?

Donate Your RV

Hello Guys, Donating a recreational vehicle to charity helps an organization and can result in a tax benefit for you, the donor. The Internal Revenue Service allows taxpayers a deduction for donating vehicles, including RVs, to certain charities. Special rules, however, apply to these donations and can affect the amount of your deduction. Find a charity that is qualified to receive tax-deductible donations and that accepts RV donations. Many charities, including churches, youth clubs and homeless shelters, seek vehicle donations, either for their own use or for resale. Thanks a lot! Tim Boon http://www.carsforprostatecancer.org/

How to amplify your acoustic guitar for under $10

Amplifying an acoustic guitar method 1 If you have a musical birthday card or whatever at home, remove the audio unit its the 1" or so round disc usually white with a small brass ring around the edge, handle carefully as they are not to strong., keep the wires on it by snipping at the opposite end, it will make things easier later, If you don't have one, buy a $1 musical card of any discription and proceed as above. Next wherever you are comfortable with it, drill a 1/4" hole to accommodate a 1/4 Mono jack socket Next solder two wires to the jack socket one to live tag and one to shield use two different colour wires and id the earth one, say if its black make a note of that(earth tag) make them about 6" long, fit socket into hole by putting your hand with socket into the sound hole and into the hole made to take the jack socket, screw the nut on socket end to make firm bring the wires out of the sound hole, fix the earth wire to the wire that goes to the outer ring on the disc (Solder (Best) or twist and tape connect the other wire to the remaining wire from jack socket.put some blue tak on the outside of the disc the opposite side to where the wires are attached put your hand in the sound hole and press the disc to the underbody a position about central under the bridge, you can experiment for best position for you. PS attach the disc with the small hole in center and white plastic area facing upwards under bridge, or wherever you like it best.....Plug into your amp adjust according to your liking and away you go. Method 2 As above except dont drill a hole rather place the jack socket via blue tak or velcro to the top of the guitar by the edge towards the rear of guitar, where the wires exit the sound hole blue tak them the the underbody to keep neat and out of the way.
