I have a problem with bugs. I think there's a hole in my screen, but I can't find any new ones to patch. Anyways, I keep having these small bugs, and now and then even a big, brown, flying beetle thing. I heard that hairspray will kill them in mid-flight, but I don't have hairspray. Anything that I can use instead? Also, it needs to be safe to spray in a bedroom.

A new report shows that bunk beds may be pretty dangerous things that can lead to broken toes, bloody noses, ceiling fan entanglement (!), falls, strangulation and more fun things. Thinking back on my own experience growing up on the top bunk as a kid and in school dorms, I think I can claim about three of those injuries. But it was fun and sometimes we combined the injuries like the time I pushed a kid off the top of a bunk (an accident, I swear) and as he was falling off he chucked a plastic squirt gun and nailed me in the forehead making me bleed all over the place.He landed on a cushion and I proudly went to the hospital. Good times.Well, here at Instructables HQ we have our own bunkbeds for interns and visitors and so far there have been no accidents. But, as this study from Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio seems to say, it's only a matter of time before we add to the 36,000 reported injuries a year. Link

Some amusing video of folks from the Sci-Fi network mildly abusing a Pleo. (This is the next toy from the people who brought you the Furby.)It's amazingly easy to kill off the little dinosaur, really. Thankfully you can always reboot.My favorite part was probably Stuart P. Bentley's comment:I can't believe you guys work for the Sci-Fi Channel and passed up the opportunity to choke a robot dinosaur while saying "IF THIS IS A CONSULAR SHIP, WHERE IS THE AMBASSADOR?"

I'm looking for a device that would allow me to be able to cut connections to my ISP with a hard switch (located in a network closet of my home). The switch would be one in which I can control form one of the PCs located on my home network. My current setup is a DSL modem/router to a network switch with 24 ports ran throughout my home. I have three PCs on the network, two printers, and a couple of NAS. I would like to have a switch that cuts the connection between my DSL modem and my ISP. The switch would be access from any PC on the network. The "internet kill switch" would connect to one of the ports of the network switch so that it could continue to be access from the network even when the ISP connection is disconnected. Has anyone came across anything like this.

Question by Bert99 8 years ago | last reply 8 years ago
I am fully aware of the legal consequences of property damage and in no way do I endorse it. I am curious however about the technology behind the attack method of the USB KIller http://www.usbkill.com. On their product page there is a picture of the device without it's cover and it appears to be mostly an array of capacitors. My current guess is that when plugged into the target device the capacitors are charged and once the array reaches a certain voltage it is shorted across the data terminals. I was wondering if anyone had bought one and could confirm this or if anyone had any alternative ideas about its operation.

I was watching the first part of Generation Kill, its about a group of marines during OIF 1, and I was getting all into it and I noticed an error, a Major error. Well just look at the picture. Normally for a vehicle to go, the engine has to be RUNNING. Tactical vehicles have switches to start them. You have off, run, and start. He has the engine off, but yet the vehicle is making noise and its going down the road. Now i know the vehicle is being pulled by a trailer, and the engine is "off" because if it was "on" it would be a crap load louder and everyone would have to scream at each other just to talk, but come on guys at least rig the knob so that it points up right when driving. What movie errors have you noticed that made you upset?

Houston, we have bug zappers! No really, just this time with lasers! I was surfing through Hack-a-Day, and I came across this. These devices identify a mosquito by the frequency of its beating wings. Once identified, the device aims a laser and destroys the little blood sucker. That seems simple enough, so: Do you think that this could be accomplished by a DIY for under $100? think about, we may have a really useful Instructable on our hands.

I've heard it a million times "It's the amps that kill". But what if we are talking about electronics? Would something that is 1.5 volts at an amp affect an electronic device? What if I had something at 10 kV, but virtually no current, like a piezoelectric ignitor? (Maybe both of these examples would, I'm not sure, but which is more likely?) Just wondering if someone can tell me whether it is mainly the volts or amps that fry electronics. And also how this happens. Does the high voltage short circuit things? Or is it the current that would overheat the small little circuits inside? I'm thinking that both are possible, but I'd like to know which is more likely to kill electronics, voltage or amperage?

I know instructables pays the bills with targeted ads. That's cool, and useful. No problems there. The problem is putting a 5 minute video in the ads. That gets downloaded when I look at an Instructable. I'm on a satellite link, and my bandwidth costs me quite a bit. If I'm going to have to pay to download a video to look at an Instructable, I either won't look at it, or I'll install ad blocking software. If I want to look at videos I'll go to Vimeo, or YouTube. Don't let poor choice in ads drive away the users.

My indoor Mint garden has aphids!!! I pulled 10 -20 off (all I could find) but I'm sure there are more! Also, I am worried that Ladybugs would die because it is a small plant (pot is 6x18 inches) and indoors. Furthermore, it is winter and freezes so the mint will die outside. How can I kill the aphids but still be able to use the mint?

I'm trying to help with my gf's mom with her property and specifically tree work right now, so yay... im learning lol. Anyway, the problem I'm having is with one of the eucalyptus trees. It seems to be dying and I want to find a way to save the tree. It may have something to do with this beetle i found in the tree. There are TONS of them. Considering there are a few eucalyptus trees on the property and this is the only one dying, and i think the only one with the beetles, it seems it seems they may be the cause. So is it the beetle? Do they kill these trees? How do I get rid of them if I need to? NOTE: There are 2 types of eucalyptus trees on the property. I'd never seen the one with the round leaves before, but its definitely a eucalyptus. In the pic i guesstimated on the varieties of eucalyptus.

ODDBALL birds are surprising British experts by using smouldering cigarette to kill parasites on their wings.The rooks are swooping on to the tracks at a Devon railway station and placing their wings over the smoke to fumigate them.Commuter Jeff Jones said told Britain's The Telegraph: "I noticed the rooks because they are not usually found in towns. They were generally flapping about when a chap flicked a cigarette butt on to the track."It was still all right and one of the rooks swooped down and picked up the butt with its beak. It then flew around and landed on the platform, dancing around with this smoking cigarette in its beak."It looked quite comical. But then it dropped the butt on the platform and pulled its wings over it, collecting the smoke. It seemed as if it were using the smoke to rid itself of perhaps ants or something similar."Five minutes later another rook, or perhaps the same one, swooped in when another cigarette was flicked away and repeated the whole thing."Royal Society for the Protection of Birds spokesman Richard Archer said the birds must have learned cigarettes can be used to kill parasites."You have to be careful attributing behaviour but it would seem fumigation is the most likely conclusion. Rooks are very intelligent," he said.It's crow week on Instructables! Post as many forum topics about crows as you can! Main image from [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rook_(bird) Wikipedia].

I got a 400watt power supply from from ebay to replace the 305watt PSU in my Dell Optiplex GX280..... I connected a new power supply incorrectly to the main motherboard connection. Plugged in the 20 pin into the right side of MB 24 pin connector (forced it in!), when I should have plugged it into the the left side, then add the additional 4 pin next to the 20 pin. (the 400watt power supply is compatible with both 24 and 20 pin motherboard connections, of which I did not know at first). After I made this error, I turned on PC---and nothing works, other than yellow AUX light on mobo and fan works on graphics card. So, I re-installed the original PSU of 305 watts, and again---nothing works, no PSU fan, no CPU fan running. So the question is : Did I fry the mobo with everything else connected (RAM, HDD, CPU, etc.)...Or have I only killed the motherboard ITSELF?...I need to know whether to buy a new motherboard (Dell OH7276)...or just buy a new PC altogether.

To craft a gadget that shoots mosquitoes with laser, there is the need to know the enemy's vulnerability. The most needed is the mosquito vulnerability to laser shooting. What wattage of laser is sufficient? The configuration I think is, attracting mosquitoes with some infrared light (or, multivibrator), then shooting with laser. I might shoot with a continuous laser (after infrared path is broken, surely), but zip-zip-zip sort of (threshold activated shooting) is sensible, too.I stated this previously @ yahoo answers, but no (serious) answer wa there.See the question there, http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090505022002AAnd31eFor a full, energy-harvesting mosquito-shooting gadget, a previous question might be related, too.
