SKUNKPUNK turns 15!

Ok, This is a bit of a crisis. My oldest son, Skunkpunk, turns 15 today! I turned 37 last week. I'm feeling OLD. I only realized that I was no longer a teenager a couple of years ago, and now I'm having to deal with being a parent of a teen. For me, 15 was a big year. Learning to drive, my first serious girlfriend, etc. I'm not ready to deal with Skunkpunk's teenage-roller-coaster. So anyway, If anyone has any advice for us we could use it. I need advice on how to parent a teen, and he needs advice on how to survive the teen years.

15" Macbook Pro

Hello everyone,          I am in the market for my first laptop. Ive been researching for about two years now and Im ready to make a purchase. My research has lead me to the 15" MacBook Pro. I am very cautious with my money and I want to make sure my hard earned money goes into a good investment. I really like it just from looking at it online. Im a pretty hardcore computer nerd and have taken up the title of the  IT manager of my house. I need a good computer.  From the few people ive talked to Ive only heard good things about the unit. Is there anyone out there, who owns one, tell me its Pros and Cons? It would be greatly appreciated!

how can i make a Wireless LED circuit board ?

I'm working on a project where i need a circuit board with about 15 LED's. But i need to have a switch turn them from a very shot distance, about 3 to 5ft. so i CAN NOT have any wires, and dont want wires. So i already assume a power supply should be mounted on the circuit board, and at the switch. But i don't know what else i need. Is there a tutorial i can find ? Could i get some help ?

what to do with 2 15" LCD monitors with a bad backlight?

The inverters are no good so reparing and selling is out of the question. so is using them, i already have a new one for my desktop and multiple monitors never work out for me. my laptop could possibly have another monitor hooked up to it but i still cant replace the inverters. it would be too expensive to fix either, (one has a bad inverter and the other has a whole bad power board) i can power up one, a Samsung SyncMaster 740N, it has no backlight, and repairing it would cost too much. i can also power up the other one, an Acer AL1706, without using the power board, but a PC power supply. the LCDs are ok as far as i can tell without backlights (ive had them both hooked up to my laptop to test them), so what can i do with these two monitors? i have no clue what to do with them, i need some inspiration. PS: one of my friends suggested i use the acer one, with a LED backlight, in my car in conjunction with a PC, when i get my car, that is.

Car Audio? Answered

First off, this is a question about speakers sound quality loudness and all that stuff, it doesn't really have to do with any math or equations, just experience.  So I want some sub woofers, and after looking around I have determined that there are cheap ones, and very expensive ones.  Now, if I get a fairly affordable 15" (med quality) will it be louder/better than a 12" one that costs $900

DM-15 bolt action sniper

Well, all the great K'nex gunners have snipers(besides oodalumps , but his semi-auto makes up for that :-) ), so I thought i would make one. its nothing really new, nothing innovative. Just that it has a bolt to pull back the ram, that allows for rapid fire. It's could be as powerful as the other snipers but i can't put to much power because i have to pull the ram back with one hand(i am wimpy so you guys will have more power). it has a 9 round mag that could be extended if you wanted. Has a block trigger hooked up to a true trigger. The front is just a make barrel. Bipod folds up and hooks onto the front of the fake barrel. i am sorry that the bolt is hard to see in the gun, it on the right side. only the left side is shown in the first two pics. its in the third pic but is kind of hard to see. it works by having a "door" in the side of the barrel for the bold to travel in and out of. the bolt need tape because the orange connectors would come off instead of pulling back the ram(the ram is the same from the pack sniper). it has just your basic scope on it, nothing to new on that part. yea, i think thats it. instructions are being made.

Possible screen for my Xbox 360? (Good idea?) Another monitor for my PC but I kind want to just use it for widgets like time, RAM usage, calendar and organizer. and extra window space. (good idea?) Other than that, I'm not sure. It's not often I get to do something with a monitor, so I'm at a loss of what to do. Any suggestions would be great.

How to fix a Dell 15" LCD monitor?

I have a Dell 15" TFT LCD monitor (E153FP) which appeared to stop working recently. It flickered for a while and then went black. However, when you look close it is displaying the images but not being lit up. Therefore it must be something to do with the backlights. Also, I took it apart and there seemed to be some black dust on the power circuit board. I can't afford a new monitor and can't really afford to take it to a repair shop. So, the question is does anyone know how to fix this problem? I have little to no experience in circuit board electronics but I reckon I would be able to pick it up with a good walkthrough. Thanks for reading my question and hopefully you can answer it! Harry.

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE MAKE AN INSTRUCTABLE ON THIS

Can someone please make the device discussed below? According to researchers at Cambridge University, EMV (Europay, Mastercard, Visa) users must be even more aware of all charges applied to their accounts than ever before. They claim that there is an integral defect in EMV’s chip-and-PIN validation protocol for debit and credit cards. Subsequently, a machine can be built to alter and obstruct communications between a card and a point-of-sale terminal. The reason for alarm is that the terminal can be tricked into receiving a false PIN verification. Although there has been no record of this happening in the UK as of yet, researchers have created this hacking device in an attempt to illustrate the flaw. They were able to trick  a card reader into validating transactions, without correct  PIN numbers, with certified cards from six issuers including  Barclaycard, Co-operative Bank, Halifax, Bank of Scotland, HSBC and John Lewis. The researchers contend that it does not take a rocket scientist to make such a device. The financial attacker could carry the device in a backpack with wires running down a sleeve, to connect to the stolen valid card and the terminal. Basically the device would override the verify PIN instruction dictated by the terminal, causing it to respond with the 0×9000 PIN verification code that allows the transaction to go through, even though the PIN is incorrect, therefore giving the attacker full access to your money. Although this is a frightening scenario, there are ways for you, the consumer, to protect yourself. Always keep constant watch over your bank statements and look out for possible fraudulent charges. If you happen to lose your card, get in contact with your bank immediately to cancel it.

How can I stop my guitar amplifier from getting severe radio interfearance?

I have a Peavy Vypyr 15 watt combo modeling guitar amplifier. It has severe radio interfearance and picks a spanish radio staion up and is ver clearly and loudly heard through the amp. I need this amp because without it the other two amps cant get as distorted, as loud, as clear, and they cant pickp the midrange that the vypyr puts out. Is there any way I can sheild, or block it from doing this? ***update*** the second picture shows the exact diagram of the splitter involved in the setup

RGB LED Voltage indicator for 15 - 10 volts

I would like to make a one RGB LED DC voltage indicator, 15 – 10 volts in half volt changes.  At first I thought I would use a bunch of zener diodes, but it seems a bit more complicated than that as on my chart how I want the colors indicated.  Any ideas how I can accomplish the circuit?  There are probably new fancy things I could use but am not aware of since it’s been a very long time since I’ve made a circuit.  I am currently just using an analog panel meter.  It would be nice have a colored light indicator.  If it could be done.

12v to 6v voltage regulator at about 15 amps

Hi, i have a 1963 VW bug that is very stock, but the 6v lights just dont work very well (dim at idle, then not too bright at speed) it is very simple to use a later 12v generator and then swap out all the lights, battery, coil and relays and it works great. BUT i have a 6v wiper motor and also a 6v gasoline heater that i will need to keep at 6v (the 12v parts are just not available or too expensive) I have found an article that recommends building a cheap voltage regulator using a 7806, ( 6 volt, 1 amp regulator) and 2 1uF 35v tantalum capacitors, then a NPN transistor which the original poster says is a 2N5881 npn transistor. here is the scematic. the pdf article is attached and the link to the original article is here http://www.studebaker-info.org/tech/6-12V/6-12-6.html  The questions i have 1. what is a 2n5881 been replaced as? i cannot find it at jameco and the original posted doesn't give any specs for it. 2. how would i "pump up" the amps available from 10 to anything else (looking for about 15 amps) thinking that the npn transistor is the key but i am new to this and wouldn't even begin to know where to look. 3. what happens if any item fails? can i put some sort of safety into this so it quits rather than passing any addition voltage through additional info the heater runs at about 85 watts so 85 watts / 6volts = 14.616 amps  the wipers run at much less than that so building 2 of this would work great.  Any ideas? Thanks in advance for any insight to this

Crate GT15R Personal Lead Amp 15 Watts with Reverb

I have a brand new Crate GT15R 15 watt amp for sale, I bought it to use with my cigar box guitar, but have gotten too busy to play much. I've only used it about 5-8 times, it works perfectly.This rugged amplifier combines outstanding features with serious clean and distorted sounds. A Reverb control is provided for greater flexibility. RCA input jacks allow connection of a CD or tape player for playing along with your favorite music, and the Headphones jack lets you practice in private.I am asking for $85I will set up the sale on Ebay, pay with paypal.PM me please.

Login screen overlap, technology page (Google Chrome 15)

Hey all. Just something that has been bugging me for a while now. I waited a few days to see if it would go away, but to no avail. The issue is when I come to the site, I have bookmarked the technology tab, so I usually login there, but every time there is a Radioshack ad that blocks the submit button for the screen. Just me or anyone else?

A PC-less 12"-15" digital picture frame? Anyone?

After reading DOZENS of DIY's explaining how to use an old laptop as a digital picture frame, I'm hoping someone here can provide a solution.I have an old 14" LCD computer monitor that I would just LOVE to turn into a low-cost digital picture frame. But I DON'T have a spare PC, nor do I want to bother with "booting into Windows/Linux/etc" just to use it. If that were the case, I'd just build a PC out of spare parts for $20. I'm looking for an easier (and less bulky) solution.I've seen DIY projects that turn small handheld media players into tiny digital picture frames, but the screen is typically no bigger than 1.5-to-3.5 inches. I can buy a *working* 3.5" DPF for the same price... not that I'd want one... with far less hassle. I'm looking to use the screen I've already got (spare it from ending up in a landfill), not buy something I don't want nor need.Maybe there's a way to connect one of these tiny media players to a bigger screen? Or maybe there's another way to display photos using something other than a PC that I'm unaware of?With all the old LCD monitors going into the trash, it seems a simple "box" that can plug into any old monitor to display photos, might be a very desirable device.Anyone?PS: I'm a "computer tech" of nearly three decades, so I already know the "complexity" of what I'm asking. Thanks.

Can light collide with light? Answered

If two electromagnetic waves intersect, what happens? Is light 'immaterial' or without density, is light weightless? The photograph below is not related to this question in any way.

Cen-Tech Thermometer to PC Hacking

I just got my new $30 Cen-Tech thermometer from Harbor Freight and it's begging to be hacked. I would love to be able to use this thermometer as part of a closed loop system to control a hot plate for soldering purposes. Just inside the battery compartment is a header with four pins. They nicely labeled the pins on the silk screen. I'm probing on "Gnd" and "Tx" pins. I used a MAX232 level shifter to convert the TTL output to RS232 so I could connect to my PC. I then ran the attached simply Python app that dumps the data packets to the console. Each packet has 25 characters and repeats at about 3Hz. My question is, how would one go about decoding the data packets? Some numbers seem constant while other move. I'm hoping the data format is obvious to someone. Note, the reading on the display was around 68.8 degrees F when this data was collected. The readings did jump plus/minus a few tenths while collecting. Any ideas? Thanks, Jim Console Output: 33 15 11 00 3A 07 9B 14 1B 1E 82 FF 15 07 A9 12 F7 01 CA 0B 97 0C 00 00 4A 33 15 11 00 3A 07 9B 14 1B 1E 82 FF 15 07 A9 12 F7 01 CA 0B 97 0C 00 00 4A 33 15 11 00 3A 07 9B 14 1B 1E 82 FF 15 07 A9 12 F7 01 CA 0B 97 0C 00 00 4A 33 15 10 00 3A 07 9B 14 1B 1E 81 FF 15 07 A9 12 F6 01 CA 0B 97 0C 00 00 47 33 15 10 00 3A 07 9B 14 1B 1E 81 FF 15 07 A9 12 F6 01 CA 0B 97 0C 00 00 47 33 15 11 00 3A 07 9B 14 1B 1E 82 FF 15 07 A9 12 F7 01 CA 0B 97 0C 00 00 4A 33 15 11 00 3A 07 9B 14 1B 1E 82 FF 15 07 A9 12 F7 01 CA 0B 97 0C 00 00 4A 33 15 12 00 3A 07 9B 14 1B 1E 84 FF 15 07 A9 12 F8 01 CA 0B 97 0C 00 00 4E 33 15 13 00 3A 07 9B 14 1B 1E 85 FF 15 07 A9 12 F9 01 CA 0B 97 0C 00 00 51 33 15 11 00 3A 07 8F 14 1B 1E 82 FF 15 07 9E 12 F7 01 CA 0B 9C 0C 00 00 38 33 15 11 00 3A 07 8F 14 1B 1E 82 FF 15 07 9E 12 F7 01 CA 0B 9C 0C 00 00 38 33 15 11 00 3A 07 8F 14 1B 1E 82 FF 15 07 9E 12 F7 01 CA 0B 9C 0C 00 00 38 33 15 09 00 51 07 63 17 65 1D 81 FF 2C 07 2D 15 F1 01 00 0C 92 0B 00 00 35 33 15 0B 00 51 07 63 17 65 1D 84 FF 2C 07 2D 15 F3 01 00 0C 92 0B 00 00 3C 33 15 0A 00 51 07 63 17 65 1D 82 FF 2C 07 2D 15 F2 01 00 0C 92 0B 00 00 38 33 15 0A 00 51 07 63 17 65 1D 82 FF 2C 07 2D 15 F2 01 00 0C 92 0B 00 00 38 33 15 0A 00 51 07 63 17 65 1D 82 FF 2C 07 2D 15 F2 01 00 0C 92 0B 00 00 38 33 15 0A 00 51 07 63 17 65 1D 82 FF 2C 07 2D 15 F2 01 00 0C 92 0B 00 00 38 33 15 0A 00 51 07 63 17 65 1D 82 FF 2C 07 2D 15 F2 01 00 0C 92 0B 00 00 38 33 15 0A 00 51 07 63 17 65 1D 82 FF 2C 07 2D 15 F2 01 00 0C 92 0B 00 00 38 33 15 0B 00 51 07 63 17 65 1D 84 FF 2C 07 2D 15 F3 01 00 0C 92 0B 00 00 3C
