Step 1. Find acorn.Step 2. Plant acorn.Step 3. Wait awhile.

• BRILLIANT! I will be making this. My only concern would be if something went wrong with the lights the acryllic lens is epoxied in place. No way to fix it without damage. Maybe I can solve that.

• https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9xbJ3enqLnAHex is a base-16 numbering system. People use base-10 because we have 10 fingers. In base 10 there are ten symbols: 0, 1, 2.....9. When you get to 9 you run out of room so you put a 1 in the tens place. Repeat this process until 99. Add a hundreds place, etc.In hex there are 16 symbols: 0, 1, 2,....9, a, b, c, d, e, fa = 10, b = 11, and so on until f = 15. So when you get to 15 (f) you move over to the sixteens place. So "10" in hex actually equals 16. a0 equals 160 (the a is worth ten, but it is in the sixteen spot). a1 = 161, a2 = 162,......FF = 255Why do this? Hex is a better way to represent binary, a base-2 system. It only uses 0 and 1. So 10 in binary equals two. 11 = 3. 100 = 4. Computers & electronics work by turning bits...

Hex is a better way to represent binary, a base-2 system. It only uses 0 and 1. So 10 in binary equals two. 11 = 3. 100 = 4. Computers & electronics work by turning bits (transistors) on (1) or off (0). If you've ever seen a computer crash it spits out stuff like 0xffa0dfff. These are memory addresses FF is 255. In binary it would be written as 11111111. This is an 8-bit address. FFFFFFFF is a 32-bit address. Imagine trying to read a string of 32 ones & zeroes.

• They were made differently back then. That's one of the reasons they are more valuable. The other being thicker casts had to be made. New cast iron has thinner sides.
