  • Awesome idea! I used rice, and used a Gatorade "like" bottle with the large top opening, so I am able to put the top back on, and if needed cover the top with the rice (or corn!).The danger here is what if I forget about it? Would be like finding that $20 in your winter coat 8 months later! lol

  • Nice! Storage is my current gig, so always interested in ideas about NAS. I will take a look at your sync idea, and I may look into a Mint or similar OS on an old PC to better handle the throughput bottleneck. That said back to Raspberry Pi build: What made you decide on the 1TB drive(s) vs. something larger? I guess what I am asking is was that a budget or on-hand limitation, or more to do with limitations on the build?

  • Definitely awesome, and no further add-ons needed! Do you have a ball park figure on what this cost you in the end?

  • Nice! Gave me some ideas...Trying it soon; but with some mods. I am using dark garden hoses for the piping. I intend to use PVC instead of wood to mount (zip-tie) the hose(s). There are 4-way fittings that will allow me to mount 3 100' hoses along a 10' piece of PVC Pipe, using a similar "cross" pattern..I will be mounting on my roof (2-story) for maximum heating. I am going to try using 'thermo-siphoning' to move the water. Since it is a garden hose, I will prime it with my water hose, and see what happens! I have a pump if that fails...I will take pics as I go, and if successful, create an Instructable!

  • I know there are other Instructables on similar Solar ideas (and I'm slowly reading through many of them), but how would something like this fare in the N.E. (US) during Winter? The output measured maxed out your thermometer, so I wasn't sure if that number may be higher... or if similar results would be achievable.

  • Awesome!!! I am SO doing this! Tired of repairing the cheap "fiber board" dresser that does not stand up to a rough 12 YO Boy. I don't have a kreg tool, I have a knock-off sold by Harbor Freight. I intend on using your idea with the screws as well. Great job!

  • Very nice. What was the final overall length of your cable on this project? Did you note how much (if any) power loss was experienced because of its length?

  • Hello, how can this be applied to eliminate the "pulsing" or "flickering" of LED lighting on a motor vehicle (12V DC), caused by the pulse electrical signals sent to the LED's? I have 0 (zero) knowledge of these topics, but need to make modifications to accommodate LED driving lights added to a motorcycle. The lights flicker or strobe at anything higher than idle speed. I am told this will shorten the lifespan of the LED's, and I would prefer to fix the problem rather than replace the lights at frequent intervals. Thank You.

  • NYT1 commented on seamster's instructable Build a floating deck

    Very nice work... I am right with you on the OCD thing. I have one question that wasn't brought up, even though you mentioned you are not in an area where frost causes upheaval issues: Why a floating deck vs. anchoring it to the ground? My guess was cost, but thought I'd ask. Thanks!
