(PS: This is me :-) )I might be older than dirt but those memories are the best part of my life.'Senility Prayer'...God grant me...The senility to forget the people I never liked;The good fortune to run into the ones that I do,And the eyesight to tell the difference.''Hey Dad,' one of my kids asked the other day, 'What was your favorite fast food when you were growing up ? ' 'We didn't have fast food when I was growing up,' I informed him. 'All the food was slow.''C'mon, seriously. Where did you eat ?''It was a place called 'at home, I explained. 'Grandma cooked every day and when Grandpa got home from work, we sat down together at the dining room table, and if I didn't like what she put on my plate I was allowed to sit there until I did like it.'By this time, the kid was laughing so hard I was afraid he was going to suffer serious internal damage, so I didn't tell him the part about how I had to have permission to leave the table. But here are some other things I would have told him about my childhood if I figured his system could have handled it:Some parents NEVER owned their own house (my Dad did, it cost him $14,000 for a 3 bedroom rancher), wore Levis , set foot on a golf course, traveled out of the country or had a credit card. In their later years they had something called a revolving charge card. The card was good only at Sears Roebuck. Or maybe it was Sears AND Roebuck. Either way, there is no Roebuck anymore. Maybe he died.My parents never drove me to soccer practice. I had a bicycle that weighed probably 50 pounds, and only had one speed, (slow). We didn't have a television in our house until I was 8. It was, of course, black and white, but they bought a piece of colored plastic to cover the screen. The top third was blue, like the sky, and the bottom third was green, like grass. The middle third was red. It was perfect for programs that had scenes of fire trucks riding across someone's lawn on a sunny day. Some people had a lens taped to the front of the TV to make the picture look larger. I was 14 before I tasted my first pizza, it was called 'pizza pie.' When I bit into it, I burned the roof of my mouth and the cheese slid off, swung down, plastered itself against my chin and burned that, too. It's still the best pizza I ever had.We didn't have a car until I was 9. Before that, the only car in our family was my grandfather's Ford. He called it a 'machine.' It started by pushing a button on the dashboard. I never had a telephone in my room. The only phone in the house was in the living room and it was on a party line. Before you could dial, you had to listen and make sure some people you didn't know weren't already using the line.Pizzas were not delivered to our home. But milk was.All newspapers were delivered by boys and all boys delivered newspapers. I delivered a newspaper, six days a week. It cost 7 cents a paper, of which I got to keep 2 cents. I had to get up at 4 AM every morning.. On Saturday, I had to collect the 42 cents from my customers. My favorite customers were the ones who gave me 50 cents and told me to keep the change. My least favorite customers were the ones who seemed to never be home on collection day.Movie stars kissed with their mouths shut. At least, they did in the movies. Touching someone else's tongue with yours was called French kissing and they didn't do that in movies. I don't know what they did in French movies. French movies were dirty and we weren't allowed to see them.Growing up isn't what it used to be, is it ?MEMORIES from a friend:My Dad is cleaning out my grandmother's house (she died in December) and he brought me an old Royal Crown Cola bottle. In the bottle top was a stopper with a bunch of holes in it. I knew immediately what it was, but my daughter had no idea. She thought they had tried to make it a salt shaker or something. I knew it as the bottle that sat on the end of the ironing board to 'sprinkle' clothes with because we didn't have steam irons. Man, I am old.

Hey again, I finished my first project recently and was looking to expand on the design. It's an EMF detector (https://www.instructables.com/community/First-project-completednow-lets-expand-it/) and it's working great. Now, I want to add memory and a USB charger to turn it into an self-contained EMF data logger. The project looks easy enough, but I have a question that I wasn't able to find answers for. Here's the question: Can the memory installed on the data logging shield be accessed through the Arduino USB port? On my cell phone, whenever I plug the USB into my laptop, it connects as a drive. I'd like to do the same thing with the EMF data logger. Or will I just have to remove the SD card every time I want to extract data from it? Thanks LorienD

DIMM 400 is obsolete, so it not easily available in strips of 1G or higher. But 512 MB of DIMM 400 is almost the same price as a more modern memory strip of 2G! Since the pin-out is the same, I was wandering if the more recent kind, like DIMM 800 would still work, but perhaps at a slower rate. If I would try, would it just not work, or would it fry (or fry the motherboard)?

Yet another benefit of getting an adequate amount of sleep: a more accurate memory. According to researchers in Europe, a lack of sleep increases the likelihood of forming false memories. However, there are two ways of avoiding this: test subjects who caught up on their sleep debt had a similar level of false memories as those who had not been sleep deprived at all. Or, you can try the classic morning method: drink coffee.They took two more groups of volunteers, deprived them of sleep, and then gave them either caffeine or a placebo in the morning, one hour before their memories were tested. The group given caffeine had 10% fewer false memories than those who did not receive any, an effect McCabe describes as "quite striking."Despite their recent closures, Starbucks must be very excited to hear this news.Take a look at the full sleep/memory article from naturenews. How much sleep are you getting each night?

I have a new test I would like to perform. this test involves puting at least three night vision camera's in a package and ship it to my house and then back to my work place. I would like to have the video camera record as long as possilbe and store the information so it can be down loaded and viewed after the shipping. I already have 6 30-LED infrared night vision CCtv wireless security cameras. I think one will run for about 8 hours if I have an 12v square battery. the camera has an RCA jack (yellow). so I would need a memory device that would link up to this and store the 8 hour time frame with no sound of course. I would also like to have it in a digital fromate if possible. My classes are keeping me jumping and work is hurried as well. I will keep working on this but if any of you have alternates ideals or somthing that will work with I got, I will be gratful to hear it. thank you. oh ya work is paying for parts so cost of this is not an issue for me at this point.

I have recently bought an expensive new ram card for my laptop. I bought it to add to what was on my laptop. But, I can only use the second card (since my laptop has two ram slots), even though the computer has recognized the new card, it won't let me use it. Here's what it says in system properties: Installed memory (RAM): 10.0 GB (1.74 GB usable) I just can't figure it out. I even looked to see if my computer had set a limit by going to the start menu, typing 'msconfig' and seeing if any limits were set, and I could not see any. UPDATE: I believe I need to check one of the ram slots because I switched the slots that the cards were in today and when I turned the computer back on the new ram card was able to be used but the old, smaller one was not. I think it is just needing to be cleaned/inspected. If that is the case, this question will be deleted. If not I will update it again if a new problem arises. Thanks for your help!

Hey all. I was wondering if there was any way to pull values (such as Ammo Count, Health, etc) from a video game to use with an Arduino board. I'm not interested in modifying them, only pulling the values. I know various keyboards can do things similar to this, but I havent had any luck finding a specific model or resource to tell me how it works. Anyone have any ideas or resources? For example, I was thinking of an LED readout of my current weapon's ammunition in a Call of Duty game, or a Shift Light for a driving simulator I own. Thanks!

I am wondering of there is a method for revitalizing old camcorder batteries which refuse to charge. I know that certain camcorder battery chargers used to come with a "refresh" button. However, the chargers that came with my batteries lack this feature. I believe that most of the batteries are Ni-Cd's. However, one of them is lead-acid. The lead-acid battery is from a VERY old camera, one in which you placed the camera on your shoulder, and slung a VHS VCR from the other. When you were done recording, you would then take the VCR and plug it into the a matching TV tuner. This would charge the battery. Any ideas that would help me get some charge into these batteries would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi there, I've got this idea for adding a small motor to a USB thumb drive, for decorative purposes, but I have some concerns. I'm considering adding a very small motor such as this one: secure.precisionmicrodrives.com/product_info.php but I'm weary about the effects of having a motor drawing from the same power as the memory stick. Might this cause problems during read/write sessions? Also, I'm not the most electrically savvy person, so I just wanted a second opinion on whether the 5V from the USB (and 100mA?) should be enough to run the motor. (In my case, torque and speed are not huge issues) I've also noticed that the motor is listed as requiring 3V, and I'm sure since this is such a small and delicate motor, it would probably be damaged by the 5V supply. Could anybody help me with the circuit elements that would allow for safely operating the motor?

Memory is truly the most precious and valuable gift we possess. Love, contentment, spirituality are all up there in the top 10, but without the memory of these things, they cannot be appreciated. As I was taking an enjoyable stroll down memory lane this morning, thoughts of my childhood BFF came to mind... which lead me to this topic. I thought would be a great brain exercise and a fun discussion for us foodies. ;-) So what's the first thing you ever made? (Mud pies don't count. ;-) My first almost-solo (no bossy mom!) was a Cheese Souffle. I remember my bff had a duck... and the duck laid eggs... lots of them! We found a mouth-watering Cheese souffle in some illustrated cookbook and the plan was hatched. ;-) Like good little 11 yo girls, we waited for her mom to go to work before commandeering the kitchen. Our creation wasn't nearly as beautiful as this one. I recall being quite disappointed as I watched the whole thing droop miserably when it came out of the oven. lol... souffle FAIL, if there ever was one... but ya gotta start somewhere! ;-D So what was your first cooking project?

A Finnish computer programmer who lost one of his fingers in a motorcycle accident has made himself a prosthetic replacement with a USB drive attached.Jerry Jalava uses the 2GB memory stick, accessed by peeling back the "nail", to store photos, movies and programmes.The finger is not permanently attached to his hand, so it can be easily left plugged into a computer when in use.Mr Jalava says he is already thinking about upgrading the finger to include more storage and wireless technology."I'm planning to use another prosthetic as a shell for the next version, which will have removable fingertip and RFID tag," he wrote on his blog, ProtoBlogr.net.Half of Mr Jalava's left ring finger had to be amputated last summer after he crashed into a deer while riding his motorbike near Helsinki.He says he was inspired to create the unique storage device when doctors treating him joked that he should have a USB "finger drive" after finding out that he was a software developer. More is apparently available on the inventor's blog, but it keeps timing out for me.BBC story
