Hi I am wondering if anyone has an idea on how to change the thermostat on a "store bought" pipe warmer. The kind you would wrap around your outdoor pipes to keep them from freezing in the winter. They are set fairly low, around 70f I believe and I would like it to put out a constant 100f or so , to about 150f or so. Thanks, GA

If you noticed the slideshow project index uses a grid of big thumbnails to let you view the projects. you can use this for regular instructables too! try these links:https://www.instructables.com/tag/type:id/?layout=imageshttps://www.instructables.com/tag/type:id/?sort=RECENT&layout;=imagesthe secret is the 'layout=images' bit, appending that to any of the 'explore' url's will show it in the new format.

Off the Hook link

Hi there, My uncle has a fierce case of tinnitus, and sometimes he can't hear the telephone ringing. He can talk on the phone alright, the ringing just messes with the perceptions of sounds usually associated with home phones ringing. So, he has a few phones hooked up around the house so he can try and hear the phone when it rings. its just a bunch of barely-functioning rotaries. Have you ever seen that scene in bicentenial man where the clockmaker and his wife are talking in the kitchen when the hour comes and all the clocks start chiming. A cacophony of alarm. That is kind of like how it is at my uncle's when somone calls. I would like to set up a visual alarm system for when somone calls. So, he has a few fairly loud rotary phones laying around. I'm sure he wouldn't mind if I took one apart along with one of his lamps. I just need to know where to screw, unscrew, solder, and smile. Thanks!!

Is anyone else out there over the whole, turn on the computer "Oh. More viruses, delete, delete, delete" thing? It's getting old... Really old...My computer is stuffed, there are so many pop-ups yours won't get through anyway, It is so slow now I can't go to your sites and if I have to hear the "gummi bear" song one more time, I'll smash the computer which = no pop-ups at all!!!You know what would REALLY SHOCK ME ??Turning on my PC and actually have it work for a change... Instead of HaCkIn' PC's and damaging them, why not use your powers for good 'ole surprise factor... remember those days?? before profitiering arose.Why not let's say...Hack-in > Fix everything > delete all my viruses and set up a impenetrable firewall for me...Now that would make me remember your attack, instead of just deleting your infection like every other one.....I had been thinking about that for a while....Until last week when I received a new virus...After some analysis, it was found to be a simple crash virus for Internet explorer...Much to my amazement this little file crashes IE, resulting in all my annoying pop-ups from IE (I use Opera) having their window closed as soon as they open.... LoL!!!This is great!! No more pop-ups!!Thank you Mr or MrS HaCkEr for fixing my computer... You rock!!Anyone else had a weird or offbeat experience from a hack attack..?

I am replacing an old mp3 rechgargeable battery rated 3.7 volts with another one that is also "rated" 3.7 BUT when measured with the Vmeter the little bugger gives an output of 4.2, (too high) is there anyway we could add a led or some resistors to lower the voltage without draining the battery when the device is off? Thanks for any suggestions Cheers!

So I replaced the cheap power supply on my Compaq so I could upgrade my video card. Anyways I'm left over with this 200W PSU and I have no use for it. I opened it up and I see components galore and a 80 MM fan. There is also a bridge rectifier and, some really big transformers, and two giant blue capacitors @ 200v, 470uF. Do I have to remove the PCB to discharge the caps before I start salvaging or is there a better spot. The Chinese that made it also made use of a lot of white hot glue. And the soldering on the PCB just looks plain bad. You guys have any thoughts of what I could do with it? Besides the lab powersupply instructable?

Software security issues are often obvious to a second pair of eyes. I just posted the PHP scripts for my personal contact homepage as an instructable:Simple PHP personal contact homepage (web3.0!)Can you hack it? Preferably a copy on your local machine and not on my actual server... I deleted all my administration files and classes prior to making this post, just in case.I have two primary concerns:1. General PHP injection attacks. Proper handling and escaping of form data.2. The admin interface has a sessions based authentication mechanism. Login is compared to a MD5 hash of the password, then a session is created with an MD5 hash of the user's IP address. Each subsequent page load compares the authenticated session IP with the user's IP address (again, an MD5 of both). The goal is to prevent remote session stealing related flaws by tying the session to an (unknown...) IP address. Obviously if you have access to the local machine this is all moot, but there is little I can do about that. If an intruder were to get around the session authentication, they would be able to upload files just about anywhere on my server using the admin upload interface. This is a bit of a concern...I think in light of this, I'm going to add an option to limit the web admin interface to one IP address. My IP is fairly static, and if it changes, simply upload a new config file by ftp.

Ok, so 2 days ago, I was looking for the highest rated Instructable, and it was the 'Useless Machine', with around 4.8 stars. Today, iIooked at the highest rated Instructable, and all of a sudden, there are arounsd 10 instructables with exactly 5*, with few ratings (around 35). The same happened in the Knex section, the 2 highest rated things are exactly 5*, even though I know peoople who rated them 4.5* (me being one of them), the 'Striker' has around 25 ratings- how is this possible? Is this legitimate, or is it a bug? or a hack? I don't know but I want answers!

Hi all, as an astute long-time reader of people's projects, I found some great ones to repurpose and reuse otherwise not-so-pretty, salvaged or thrift-store bought furniture. However, as I slowly gained confidence in my abilities and availability of products, I sustained my third treatment against bedbugs in less than a year. Nothing unusual in my town where the epidemics is out of control, but surely a time-waster and great source of tension between tenants and landlords. For those who have been lucky not to harbour this pesky little parasite, a treatment involves pulling every furniture from the walls, dismantling every piece that can, turning them upside-down, removing wall outlet plates, placing dirty laundry nearing the bed at the center of the room, waiting for the CPO to spray everything, leave a mess of a (inefficient) white powder everywhere, going outside the home for at least 12 hours, going back, pack everything and go to the laundry, come back and re-assemble the furniture. This is extremely time-consuming, but I got a hint from the CPO that could potentially save hours of work. Bedbugs don't fly or jump, and cannot climb on metal or plastic. Conversely, they are especially fond of wood to live and sticks their eggs on. Incidentally, wood is the most common material to make low-end Ikea furniture. Question is, considering current North American bedbug invasion, why is there no more bedbugs treatment friendly hacks, or at least a word of caution against getting anything used or of unknown origin? That would be as responsible thing to discourage the practice, as we already do about wearing safety googles when using a power tool. And second, why aren't there more hacks and projects with that in mind? As Tim Anderson wrote, most people have more time than money on their hands. Well, I have neither of those (nor a vehicle), and thus cannot participate at that time.

I'm thinking about persuading my new employer to start a hackerspace or makerspace. As an aside, do you think the two terms mean different things, or are they interchangeable? If they are different, what is that difference? If they mean the same thing, which is the better term? Why?

So, I would assume that everybody has heard of this. I thought it would be a good idea to come here and provide links for this, as well as this. The first is a list of some major companies/websites and whether or not they were affected, as well as whether or not you should change your password. The second is a site checker to see if a site has been fixed.

Just ran across this blog post by someone who has altered his sewing machine for significantly improved performance, and several modes of operation. I particularly love the mode where the needle follows the pedal, up, or down. You basically make one stitch at at time each time you press the foot pedal. Want!
