Which messenger program is the best?

All the messenger programs seem to have one thing or another defunct. Is there one that is universal that doesn't have so many bugs and still offers the most popular features of a messenger program?

Re-design messenger bag strap so that it doesn't slide or bunch at the loop

Hi all, I have a Clive messenger bag that is perfect for my carrying and commuting needs, except for the strap. The material of the strap is pretty flimsy, not the tough woven type as found on timbuk2 or Chrome messenger bags. If the bag is too heavy (with books, etc) the strap slides so that it's too long. The strap is sewn into the bag on one side, and on the other side, the strap goes through a small (maybe 5 mm diameter) metal rectangular loop. The strap always bunches and the loop hangs vertically so that the tab connected to the bag and the bag strap are all bunched. Does anyone have any ideas on how to re-sew or replace the strap and/or loop so that the strap doesn't bunch or slide? Thanks

So I purchased the messenger for the 360 pad, but I'm unable to use it as the keyboard. Are there any programs or steps I could take to use the 360 pad and messenger combo on my PC to browse the net, chat, play games etc. in place of keyboard and mouse? Thanks in advance.

is there anything duct tape won't stick to? Answered

I'm planning to make a satchel bag out of duct tape and i've pretty much figured out the mechanics on how to make it. however, for my initial plan to work out, i'm gonna need a sheet of SOMETHING that duct tape doesn't stick to, or at least, doesn't stick to as well. i'm planning to lay on the strips of duct tape on THAT and then move on from there. so, any ideas? wax paper (like the yellow stuff used as backing for stickers)? paper rubbed with oil? a certain type of cloth? WET cloth (haha)? a certain type of plastic?  thanks in advance!

YaY! I figured it out!This is a really simple message that is secure on how to get msn and facebook, and gtalk and a bunch of other chat machines to work on the brand new nintendo dsi. Without voiding the warranty, of course.1: Get the opera browser on dsi, if you haven't yet.2: Go to http://m.ebuddy.com on your dsi.3:Sign in (you can sign onto msn, then at the bottom of the next screen there is a button that says add more networks (or something like that)4: Now you can use all your accounts!but that takes time. I suggest creating an e-buddy ID so you only need one username and password.YAY!So far, this is the only guide I have found on the web. Has anyone else found any other ways?

Solar Panel Messenger Bag : Current help?

I found a super cheap solar charger at goodwill and couldn't pass it up. ($2 for this thing!)  It's supposed to charge car batteries through the OBD2/EOBD plug. http://www.amazon.co.uk/ICP-06002IC10-Solar-Trickle-Charger/dp/B003IVD77Q It's rated 240mA @ 18V, 4.3W What I was wondering was, if I just lobbed off just the end of the connector to have the DC wires, and left the voltage regulator, could it power a laptop?  Through the laptop's own AC!!!!! adapter?  I recently discovered that the NES was an AC device that did fine on DC power but it's kind of a different story when it's a macbook. Or instead of through the standard adapter, straight to the laptop power port itself?  Probably after making another small current regulator to get the right voltage.  The adapter accepts AC 1.5A 100-240V 50/60Hz as input and outputs +16.5V DC 3.65A Or possibly lob off the voltage regulator on the solar panel and seeing what I can max out at?  I'm open to a lot of suggestions.  Evidently it has some sort of protection circuit to prevent overcharging the battery so I dunno if that would help or hurt this endeavor.  But having an integrated toteable power supply would be pretty neat, always charging my macbook.  Or even my DS lite or GBA SP.

Cat Food Bag Recycle?

Any new ideas for this cat food bag? It's too big for a wallet, and making a purse or messenger bag out of it just seems... redundant. I mean, it's already a bag, right? But my brain isn't coming up with anything else more creative. Its really too cool to throw away though. It's wonderfully shiny and colorful on the outside, and it appears to actually be woven together of some sort of tyvek material. It looks like it would survive a lot of abuse. I've got basic sewing skills, and whatever materials that I don't have around the house I can pick up from Lowes, Walmart or Joanns. :-)

"New " old material for experimentation.

This video is about Nitinol memory metal engines that are basically Stirling heat engines and work on a very low temperature difference. I first say this material while watching a video on the founder of 'The Venus Project'. He had small spring that he would stretch out of shape and the heat it - it would come back to its original form and shape. I thought it was neat but didn't see the potential of the material. This video is from a 1970 CNN broadcast  - when CNN was news instead of a propaganda machine. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7GfYlRakZ6Y The material is available on the web somewhere as others have purchased it since I showed them the video. At this point in time I am more of an information messenger and unable to partake in experimentation. So have at it guys and gals. God Bless

How to rip data from a phone?

So my phone is now rather broken, im using a backup as a large portion of the touchscreen is no longer responsive, so my issue is that there are large amounts of data i would prefer not to lose on the phone in various apps and things that would not be saved to the sd card for instance the messenging service Kik, i have a lot of messages i would prefer not to lose  ive always thought when i wouldnt have an issue with a root going bad , for instance when i would have a replacement phone on hand, then i would root it and get the data off it so my issue comes down to is it possible to root a phone, retrieve the data WITHOUT needing the fully functioning touchscreen? for instance all through the computer  the phone's model is the T-Mobile MyTouch Q (without slide out keyboard)

help with dyeing painter's canvas with diluted textile paint (before making a bag with it)? Answered

Hi! bit of a noob here :) i'm planning to make a messenger bag out of some painter's canvas, and i would like to dye the canvas grey before i begin. i'm wary of using powdered dyes and stuff like that so i did a little research and found out that diluted textile paint would work nicely. what are your thoughts on this? and do you have any other tips regarding the process? (like, how to manage the shrinkage, what tools i should use, what things i should avoid, etc.) i don't really need it to look super slick or anything (i think it would look interesting if the dye job is uneven) and i might try and wax the canvas afterwards. thank you in advance for your input if you do reply :)

Light(ish) and non flexible.

I am toying with the idea of putting together a non flexible notebook case. I really liked the look of my Timbuk2 sleeve and other sleeves out there, but they always leave out adequate support to prevent flex when in a messenger bag. I am pretty sure that being flexed across my back while cycling with a good amount of weight pressing on it killed the motherboard (twice!) on my old notebook and would like to avoid it again. I need some materials suggestions though. I need a non-flexible material to act as plates to be sewn into the outside covering of the case. Ceramic plate would be ideal, but the things that I have found are anti-ballistic and ridiculously expensive. Plate steel would work but it is heavy. Anyone out there with experience with plate steel or aluminum that can tell me how thin I can go without flex, or maybe some advice on materials that I haven't thought of?

Instructable's robot not sending me notifications?

For the past week, I have not been receiving notifications for questions I have asked, or comments on my instructables. They do seem to appear in the orange board, and I have checked my settings for email notifications twice on different computers to verify it is not just me. I have also noticed that my recent replies to people are not answered or replied back to. Although it is difficult to tell since people to don't usually reply back anyway. So if you plan to reply, and I'll keep an eye out for any notifications and keep the page refreshed, and hopefully reply within the same day, maybe then you (the community who answered) can come back and verify if they did not receive the reply? I wonder if the same issue occurs with PM messengers, Not sure. Also how do I submit a bug report? [EDIT:] Posted bug report here, as well as other minor bugs with the commenting system.

Solar storage help

Hello! I'm new to the forums, but I've read many instructables. I'm looking to create a solar-charging messenger bag. I decided on a powerfilm flexible solar cell that is 7.2v 200mA. Amazon has them for slightly above $50. I originally wanted to use a xtreme mac Incharge portable to store the power,(PLEASE CORRECT ME IF I AM WRONG) but I think that may take too much to convert it from 120v in to 7.2v in. The benefit of this item is that it has two 1w usb output charging terminals. That means faster charging.  The second idea is to send the solar energy to four AA Energizer rechargeable (1.2v 2500mAh) NiMH batteries. The benefit of using AA batteries is they can be used for other things and that they can be easily replaced after running through charging cycles(I don't know the life cycle of rechargeable batteries anymore). Any assistance offered would be greatly appreciated. I have the bag, will be ordering the solar cell later this week, found the incharge portable at a thrift store, and always have plenty of batteries and wires. Thanks!

Damn you service pack three!

Well I finally gave in to the little pop-up box in the corner of the screen and installed Xp service pack three and it messed me about something shocking... A list of issues: - The quazi-vista theme I was running wet itself completely, now replaced with Zune theme - Firefox three got very upset and now has a mint theme because it had a bog standard theme that looked similar - The startup screen (login bit) and the login screen for password protection on knocking off screensaver is going mad, both do work but have some bizarre half breed theme on the go - The computer ticked and banged for ages - Multiple other weird ones - Oh startup programs decided to appear, suddenly I was inundated by FF, messenger, skype, media player and photoshop all opening on startup rather than just wireless G-utility... The odd three are on my taskbar list, some connection... Skype, I have no clue. Before the restart everything worked really oddly, I caught on that it was time because it refused me the ability to install programs and generally messed around. On the upside I hit a couple of sites and the combination of a less heavyweight theme and a ram optimiser majigger have got the computer running faster, now I'm just clawing back all my old settings. Slowly.
