I am seeking a good rental place to buy in Brampton, Ontario Canada. I think it is a good business to rent out your property and collect money for your further needs. Any idea or suggestion will be appreciated.

I'm planning on setting up a simple home security system for my home. I was thinking of using Wireless IP webcams, placed in strategic locations, monitored by software with a motion sensing function. I would tweak the sensitivity and add null zones as needed. I would probably only use two or three cameras to start out, and have the software save ten or twenty seconds of video when the motion sensor was triggered. EASY. Once I have the motion sensing bugs worked out, I'd like for the software to email/text message me. I think most of the security programs for webcams out there can do this. I've had good experiences with one program that also let you run an image server so you can view current images through the internet. The TRICKY part is how I would like to set up the network of wireless IP webcams. What I was hoping to do is have one machine that was dedicated to running the cameras. My goal was to use my two wireless routers so that I could have two seperate networks, one for the cameras, and one for all the other devices (laptops, desktops, game systems, printers). My question is, do I connect the router for the cameras to the computer that will run the security software, or do I plug that router into the router for the other devices? I've never worked with two of these small LinkSYS routers at the same time, so I'm not sure if I should be trying to create some sort of network bridge, or if I would maybe connect the camera router and camera computer via the WAN port of the router, since all of the camera images would be displayed on a image/web server running on that computer, accessed from the internet via the other router. Also, I've never worked with wireless IP webcams, so if there is any sort of quirck that I should know about that your average instructables user couldn't figure out, any help or advice with that would be much appreciated as well. Thanx Tony P.S. Eventually, I'd like to add in a strobe that would blink and a siren that would sound for a short time. I think I could figure this part out with "Pico Servers" and some relays.

Any ideas on how to use the space creatively. The open space is between the drawing room and the living room. In the pictures below I have captured this space from different angles just to give you some perspective. At this point I don't have the actual dimension of the space but can provide if required.

It is very irritating to be looking at anything on the home page and have the page jump back upward every time the pictures at the top switch from one to another. It makes it difficult to browse through the recent submissions or anything at the bottom of the page.

Well, the last home page change wasn't quite as successful as we'd hoped. We heard people saying that they didn't like the moving pictures, and wanted the titles visible, without having to hover. So I've just pushed out some modifications that change those things. We hope the current version is better!

Just pushed out a newly skinned site. The layouts are a bit cleaner and nicer (and there's another Robot hiding in the footer!). In the continuing search to surface the best projects and make them as easy as possible to find, we've also redesigned the home page a bit, including adding a Project of the Day. There's also a note from the Editors, which we'll update frequently as updates occur! Several bugfixes are out as well, most importantly the fixes for comments with images, and the Paypal button which sometimes was not pushable in Firefox.

Available pluses home gas generators: * Rate per se gas generator compared with the price affordable euro GASOLINE. * The price of fuel is lower than that of the generator on diesel or gasoline. Available Cons: * Gas ââis considered the most volatile than diesel or gasoline. * Appeal from the gas and the installation of equipment for gas processing requests for special and separate permission. Our legislation prohibited the installation of systems and gas processing equipment in the absence of a suitable plan or agreement. * Most of all, on our market, there are gas generators made in China. * Gas ââgenerators are made on the basis of a gasoline engine, the method of adjustment of fuel injection system and fuel carburation. In accordance with this resource from the generator corresponds to the resource gasoline engine. * Later, the acquisition of the gas generator of small capacity, the buyer is faced with a specific limitation on work: a maximum of 6 hours per day. The resource identified by the manufacturers of gas generators, with the first glance quite broad. However, do not understand the root cause of its increase. On average, the share of gasoline engine, out of which gas engines, floats in the range up to 2000 HOURS. This common resource for the euro generator. Imagine the Chinese gasoline engine, the resource is constant. Next, suppose that the resource oposlya changing gasoline engine to natural gas will not decrease. (Our real change of cars with fuel gas indicates a reduction of the resource engine, which originally was made for 1-octane gasoline, well, and subsequently applied for another). 1 of firms offering gas generators, a guarantee in 2000, machine hours, or one year, although with the limitation, at least 6 hours per day. The appointment of such a generator is not clear. As a source of constant power, he will not do, as backup - as well as the first blackout since most 6 hours (which happens often) determines the total loss of warranty. It is reasonable to imagine that the buyer, which turned off the light of day, will not sits all day in the absence of light, zhdya coming the next day. In general, in fact, a similar limitation on the work looks pretty amazing: It seems as clear that the miniature generator with cooling air is not able to operate around the clock. While that still causes inconvenience to cool the generator, for example, for 1 hour, and then resume his work? In solid power installed thermal disconnector, which simply will not allow too much power to warm up, and therefore, the decision on mode of operation.

What happened to the Instructable Home Page...? It is showing very old pages and links to competitions already closed. On top of the Featured list there is an Instructable captioned as "The most Eco-Friendly lampshade! by sathyanaarayanan". The link does not exist.

I recently posted an instructable but I don't think anyone saw it. I didn't even see it appear. The problem is that the home page for instructables.com shows Featured and Popular. I thought the most recent used to appear on the home page. Am I wrong about this? To get to the most recent ones, i have to create the following link: https://www.instructables.com/tag/type:id/?sort=RECENTIt seems like new instructables don't get noticed easily. If I am wrong, tell me what I need to do.

Hi creative people, I am in need of a bit expert knowledge or good ideas. This is my attempt to make my first homeproject and instructible as I see this idea as being a fun and cool project to use the space I have in my apartment. I have two bed lofts (I'm not sure this is the correct word for it though), my project is about connecting the two lofts so it is one piece together as well as making a way to get up there. I will write the instructible when I have finished the project with a little help (hopefully before the end of may) My problem: I have attached two pictures, the first picture shows the two bed lofts with beams connecting them together, I want to cut a big piece of wood to lay on over the beams filling all the space from the furthest end of the picture to the third closest beam to the camera. Between the second and third closest beams I'm going to build a ladder for easy access (I thought about making a climbing wall as that could be fun and very different). In the second picture you can see the beams, there is a small distance aproximately ranging from 4,5-7 cm from the beam to the top of the metal. I want it to level with the two sides, the big problem here is that one side of the beam is 4,5 cm from beam to the top and the other 7. The difference in distance is different for most beams. Is there any way /materail/idea I can use to make it level while still having approximately 1,9 cm space left? I added a bad paint picture for reference (black is support, red is the board/slab of wood to lie on) I hope you can help as I'm kinda of stuck on this detail to make the project perfect. Regards Droqles

Hi everybody, i want to build a home trainer which connects to my computer in that way, that video will only be played when i do some exercise. my idea: - attach bike dynamo to home trainer bike - make connection to old external computer keyboard - fiddle with the software so video is played when a button is "pressed" (or activated by exercise), if the button is not pressed, the video will pause. the last point seems to be really tricky - any ideas? any alternative ideas from anyone? i do not want some on/off switch because then you could simply do two strokes on the bike and sit back and relax to watch the movie. i want a solution where only when straddling the video will play. cheers, stefan

I'm thinking about using PFCs (power factor correction capacitors) for my whole house. Has anyone here done it? I currently use PFCs on my neon sign transformer (an d it works), but I have a question. Why wouldn't one capacitor effect my whole house? or does it and it's just because it's a tiny cap (only about 20uF) that the results are negilagble? Also, what stops it from just affecting my house to the whole power grid? thankyou EDIT: I just read somewhere that the power company for residential homes charges the same whether you use PFCs or not, they just somehow mesure the real power... Is that true?

So I was wondering if it had already snowed in your town and if so how much? I live in Belgium, Limburg, Bilzen and our whole country is getting huge snowfall like I have only seen once in my short 20 year life. At home we have about 10 cm of snow lying and more is still falling out of the sky... Heathrow in the UK has apperantly shut down and many UK people are stuck in our airports (Zaventem, etc) now and problems with transportation are rising in my country and neighbouring ones. So how's the situation with you guys? Enclosed a picture of my backyard at around 2 in the afternoon.

The directions were great. Except, now that I got my air pump going and everything else, there is a smell coming from it. It smells like garbage. Also, when the bubbles come up to the surface there's a bunch of bubbles left at the surface...it looks like a bubble bath. The first time this happen with the smell I just got another air stone. So, now I have two in the container. I emptied the old water and solution, cleaned the container and add more water with fertilizer. This worked great, but then two weeks later it was time for me to put fresh water again and now it's doing the same thing with the garbage smell. Please give me some ideas on how to get rid of this.

I've been trying to gather information to build a welder for a special application. The use is for welding the commutator tabs and magnet wire that passes over them for small DC motors. While there are specialized and often automated welders made for this purpose, they are both large and very expensive and really intended for industrial users. I have been able to get small bits of information as to how others have done this, but it's been difficult to get the whole project laid out (there is apparently some "secrecy" involved here!?). The materials being welded (soldering isn't a preferable way to make this connection...these motors run hot and very fast) are the brass commutator tabs (approximately .030" thick material about .060" wide formed as a "U") and the copper magnet wire used to wind the poles that then passes over each brass tab...from #23 awg to #28awg. From what I've been able to gather, people have done this on a "homebrew" basis using 6V automotive battery chargers/starters that can deliver around 30 amps or more. I have very little knowledge of electronics and none at all about welding and circuit design, but am looking for information on how I might proceed after sourcing the charger/starter. I'm guessing that the "negative" cable would be adapted to use as a clamp at the commutator and would also double as a heat sink to prevent damaging the commutator and that the "positive" cable would somehow be adapted to hold some sort of fine rod that would touch each com tab to complete the welds. -Maybe a footswitch could or should be used to start/stop the weld? -Is the positive cable simply used to hold a rod for the "spot weld"?, or are there other pieces that need to be added? To my mind, it would seem that simply touching the positive to the commutator tab to make the weld and complete the circuit would simply trip a breaker at the panel or any protection device on the charger(dead short!?). -Any other information or thoughts? Thank you in advance -john

Lately I've been looking into home water purification; and I was hoping I could get some community support, and ideas :) So far in my online research, I have found that active carbon works well as a filter. So, I was thinking I could sew some between two pieces of fabric, and then put it at the bottom of a pvc pipe, thus letting the water go through it; From there, I got the idea of making a wooden box, which will be just about (1 ft x 1 ft) all the way around. I'd also line the inside with a plastic sheet, like those found in a home pond. I think that would make a good housing for the filtering equipment; I'm still working out the details on the actual purification of the water; I have a basic understanding of it, though if you have some insight, please do share :) Also, if active carbon would be a good solution, where would be a good place to find it; I live in the Glendale, Arizona area, so somewhere around here, if you could.

muddywaters asked a question seeking cheap, possibly DIY, home building. There are lots of great answers to that post; some of the most interesting mentioning prefab and shipping container structures. I recently had reason to read Phoenix, AZ's main newspaper, which had an article entitled “Rehabbing PreFab”, discussing a local project at Taliesin West architecture school. Students are exploring the PreFabricated homes, with Modern architecture styling. Definitely a new take on PreFab. Exciting work, particularly the shipping container mod-mods. Doing a quick search turns up the website busyboo which has many articles regarding contemporary exploration of highly artistic PreFab units. The price of these designs is quite different from traditional prefab homes, partly a reflection of the limited market and partly the cache styling. What do y'all think? Borrowing design ideas from these MODpreFAB companies, perhaps a DIY opportunity! $$$ Only fools buy retail $$ wholesale $ Those who can, DIY! The Arizona Republic article mentions the following companies experimenting with MODpreFAB: (Reproduced from print edition) ASUL: Phoenix AZ company that sells kits for onsite assembly (~$100/sq ft.) asul.us Hive Modular: Minneapolis, MN company rpoducing affordable modern homes. hivemodular.com Kithaus: California company offering small, connectable components ($25,000+ / 100 sq ft) kithaus.com LivingHomes: California developer (~$230 / sq ft) livinghomes.net Marmol Radziner: Los Angeles, CA company builds in factory with most appliances installed, then breaks apart sections for shipping (~$200 - $300 / sq ft) marmolradzinerprefab.com Method Homes: Seattle, WA company offering energy efficient prefabs (~$160+ / sq ft) methodhomes.net mkDesigns: Based on Instructables member!

What parts do you like, and which parts need work? Feedback is greatly appreciated, especially from the admins. However, "This sucks because I don't like it" is not an acceptable comment.

Hey Everyone! We had some down time earlier to release some awesome stuff, a new explore page, a new instructable page and a new homepage. We also did some site wide code changes to make things look more consistent and make it easier to make changes in the future. To prepare for this we've been processing all of our images (over 2 million!) to be of higher quality and to be new sizes for layouts as always, if you see any bugs post them in the forums. if you like the changes, desserts can be sent to the 82 2nd st office.
