Pro membership billing confusing

I'm considering upgrading to a Pro membership. However, the chart for upgrades makes NO sense, that I can see: Monthly - billed annually is $1.95 - x 12 = $23.40 Quarterly - is what $3.99? is that the QUARTERLY payment? x 4 = $15.96 2 year - billed once - $39.99 - best deal - I don't see it? What is the quarterly payment? Monthly? (that doesn't make sense). MJM

Natural electronics

Ive been making tons of projects lately and i keep asking myself the same question. What is going on in those little components i solder on. Say i was to take resistors, capacitors, transistors microchips etc... and snap them in two, what would I see? What is it that allows people to program microchips, Is it essentially typing code and sending it into a natural resource? What allow wire to carry information? Does anyone else ask themselves these mind boggling questions? Or better yet does anyone have answer?

Sorting confusion...

Confused Crocodile

I'm a confused crocodile...I wanted to compete in the 3d money clip challenge and will still design something for it :) . After numerous times of trying to make the software work it just didn't so I'm going to try to use some other CADs that I have. With that being said here lies my confusion about this contest.The prize(s) for the 3d money clip contest is a $100.00 credit for five winners. I went to the website and there's a membership fee and if you aren't a member then the cost of services is higher. Plus, there's an hourly charge for the services and I'm basically confused as to the benefit of a $100.00 voucher/credit. Would that be enough to make a 3d print of the 3d model for the winners of the contest?

I am making some iron oxide using the method with the 9 volt and nail in saltwater. Im a little confused however in all the thermite instuctables it says that the wire that bubbles the most is the positve wire. When i connect the (what the battery says) is positive to the nails and insert the negative into the water it seems like more bubbles are kinda comming off the stripped negative wire. The water is turning a little green(update-its not to green anymore) There is brown stuff floating at the top of the water.which doesnt burn my skin and smells like metal. I am using copper wire.

Confused about LED drivers and current. thats the driver im using and i want to have 6 1 watt LEDs attached to it. I finally found a 30volt power supply but it puts out 1 amp. from what i understand i cant put that much current through the driver. i was reading around though and it looks like maybe the driver is only going to pull what it needs from that amp. I dont want to blow my driver and i dont want to blow the LED. i would probably just try it out anyway but am still waiting for the parts to come in the mail...
