Google boss concerned about privacy??

One coolest pieces of technology in the hands of independent Makers is the UAV; students and hobbyists can exceed military spec for drones and quadrocopters for a fraction of the cost.  So it concerns me when Eric Schmidt, head of the company that put millions of people's homes online without asking, and has been fined in several countries for harvesting personal data via wifi, trys to influence American policy makers, invoking the demon called Terrorists Might, so that the use of UAVs is restricted on thd grounds of "protecting privacy". What say you, Makers? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-22134898 Image of Eric Schmidtvfrom AP via BBC site.

Boss DS1 pedal not working anymore, any solutions?

I bought a DS1 not so long ago and the battery had died. I didn't want to go to buy a new one so I decided stupidly to connect a 12V plug that I had lying around. It was working fine for a minute until I started to notice a burning smell. The pedal stopped working altogether and now I'm left without the pedal I use most, and don't have the money for a new one. I don't know wether to throw it out completely or try and fix it if it's just a small component that needs replaced. If i put a battery in the light comes on, sound still goes through, but no distortion. Any ideas on what I should do?  Cheers in advance

In an interview, the boss trying to negotiate with your expected salary, what will you do?

I find it quite hard in dealing the salary with boss whenever its come to  an interview session. I am facing this problem not because of I set my expected salary high. It is because I know my self well, I am kind of person that  not firm enough in my point sometime. (sincerely thought that) and I am kind of soft hearted person. and I am very easy to deal with everything. I am an illustrator cum graphic designer. My working experience (2 yrs). I set my expected salary wise, where i though i really deserve that price. -based of my qualification and working experience. But when come to interview, the boss usually likes to negotiate my expected salary. They will try to make it lower than my expected price. Even though I try to fight it back in the first stage, but eventually I give up. If I decided to work for that job, I may end up feeling unsatisfying to my monthly salary.  Upon of all this problem I have facing.... Anyone have any suggestion for me to stand strong on my point? or any solution for me? I need to know, so that next time when I come to interview I can have ready and make sure I satisfy my salary.  thx :]

Is it safe to power a 9V 4mA device (Boss DS-1 pedal) with a 9V 850mA adapter? Answered

I'm not sure how mA works. The recommended manufacturer's adapter outputs 500mA and a different one I found around the house has 850. The specs for the pedal (http://www.roland.com/products/en/DS-1/specs.html) say it only draws 4mA, so I think I'm safe but I'd like to confirm before I try.

Volunteer : Need Help : English language : Past and Present tenses

Hi !The use of English past and present tenses are not that intuitive ......... and I find them quite limiting and rigid ........Let's say I need to write a story. Traditionally, that's the past tense that is used :Bob entered the office of Mister P, his boss.The old man was looking seriously angry. He was red like a tomato."Sit down Bob ! We have to talk !", he yelled, moving nervously some files on his desk.Bob sat down and was smiling politely, with the hope that his boss was going to calm down a little.But showing his beautiful teeth did not had the expected effect :"Why are you smiling at me like that ?!, yelled the old man.Bob jumped on his seat. Like by magics, the fear changed his smile into a giant contracture.etc ..."Is the use of past tense correct ?Now, let's say I need to tell the same story, but using Present tense, like if it was happening in real time :Bob enters the office of Mister P, his boss.The old man is looking seriously angry. He is red like a tomato."Sit down Bob ! We have to talk !", he yells, moving nervously some files on his desk.Bob sits down and smiles politely, with the hope that his boss is going to calm down a little.But showing his beautiful teeth don't have the expected effect :"Why are you smiling at me like that ?!, yells the old man.Bob jumps on his seat. Like by magics, the fear changed his smile into a giant contracture.etc ..."My natural reflex is to use present simple (like I'd do in my language). But present simple is described as a tense for generalities .......How do you tell a story in present tense ? Do you make heavy use of present continuous (which is not really beautiful) ???Thanks for your help =o)

Jewelry tools for sale

My boss recently purchased all the tools from a jewelry shop that was going out of business and subsequently has a lot of tools that he is parting with. While these are primarily jewelry tools many of them are perfect for prop building. He has some nice workbenches, casting equipment, benchtop laser welder, a large polishing station, plating rectifier, rolling mills, benchtop lathe, flexshaft motors/handpieces, microscopes, engraving tools and all kinds of small hand tools. There's too much to list here- I have a complete listing of everything with photos and pricing. Some of this equipment is pretty big/heavy so local pickup would be preferred (Boulder, Colorado) but he said he'll ship equipment if need be. After downloading and viewing the list if there are any questions just message me and I'll try to answer them as best as possible or have my boss email you. Thanks!

Question about converting a 9v Battery Gadget to AA's.

Hi. I have a Boss DS-2 distortion pedal, but my problem is, it drains the 9 volt batteries like a semi-trailer. So I basically wanted to convert it to AA batteries. Technically speaking, I'll need 6 AA's to make 9volts, but 9 volt batteries have a different current don't they, or will that not matter in this application. I'd also like to insert an on/off switch because it drives me crazy that the only way to remove it, is by pulling out the 'input' cord (guitar to pedal). Please respond if you know the answer.

Wondering what I can do with this hollow cathode tube...

I've got this hollow cathode tube from a spectra aa machine (used for metals analysis). It was supposedly still working - my old boss at the lab I worked at found it and considered tossing it out as they no longer had that AA machine (they had upgraded to an ICP/MS), but knows I collect interesting looking things. Am I right to assume that cathode tubes are quite dissimilar to the variety of tubes used in vintage amps and of no use in that regard? Does anyone know what sort of power I'd be looking for to even get this thing to light up? On the plug at the end of its cable, they posts are labeled A through F, then H, J, and K.
