Trying not to be history. 12VDC 500ma power supply to 12VDC 300ma computer fan

I have a project in mind which would utilize a 12VDC 300ma computer fan. I would like to use an old peripheral wall plug style power supply. I have one rated at 12V 500ma which I think would work fine.  Problem: How do I determine +/- if I cut the male plug off of the power supply without shorting out my apartment building or spending the weekend in intensive care? The cord is marked along one lead with a gray "dash".

Movie Cliché: Hidden Wall Safe

So I am actually a bit surprised that there is no instructable on how to make a hidden wall safe. More or less I am wanting to build a hidden shelf area akin to that of a hidden wall safe. IE: you have a picture on the wall that moves in some way to reveal the hidden space behind it. Just wondering why no one has done it before? So 100 points to who can guess what my next project is :-P

How could I build a mask that can breath out fog?

I am wondering if there is a way to make a mask with some sort of built in 'fog machine' of sorts. A way that I can breath out a fog like vapor from the mouth of the mask that is safe to breath in. I intend on making the mouth of the mask able to open and close by attaching the bottom jaw to my jaw to allow it to open when my mouth opens and close when it closes. I already fairly certain that dry-ice is entirely out of the equation as breathing in the vapors produced can be harmful.

Knex Safe (TGKTR2 Entry)

Alright! This is my safe. And a safe safe it is too! Me and a few other people noticed the irony of a knex safe, because you could just take it apart. Not so with this one! I made it with stupidly thick and Hard-to-take-apart walls, so as you would really need to work to get it open. The only piece you could break off are the pistons coming out the side, but then you've ruined the mech, and it wont work at all. However, there is a snag. The actual pin that goes into the door could not be finished on time. Everything else is here though, and I hope to get it finished up very soon. Sorry about that! The deadline sneaked up on me... So thats prettymuch it! Hope you like it. I have a video of the mechanism, but its not uploading. I should have one up tomorrow. EDIT: For all you folks bugging me to post (you know who you are...), let me give you the scoop. I am currently building a new safe. It should be stronger than the last, smaller, and cleaner. Please be patient, I will post when I can, bugging me about it wont make the time go any quicker. Thank you.

safe skin dyes

What is the safest way to dye your skin a different color (temporarily or permanently) without poisoning yourself, and/or getting sick from it? I've stained my fingers with slightly-poisonous malachite, but never got sick from it. in fact, my entire left arm got covered in it, and I felt fine. I never inhaled any, seeing as that's where it's mostly poisonous. so, basically, I just need to know what compounds are safe to apply to skin, and not get poisoned. I need the following 2 colors: Green and Black.

How to make a mummy costume

Hi, I am a public school teacher in the Atlanta area.  I am desperately seeking sites where my students can download free images.  squirrelnet directed me to your site for a toilet paper mummy.  However, I cannot use your great pictures there because there is a man on a motorcycle with his middle finger raised.  Is there any portion of your site where I can direct my students to a "safe zone?"  I don't think that picture, although cute for the adult crowd, is really necessary.  The other photos are spectacular.  Here we are, just public school teachers, trying to get a little help.  Don't condemn me for being "fussy."  I am the least fussy person you could meet, but keeping my job means finding safe stuff on the internet for my students.  And remember, most of you owe your jobs to a set of caring teachers.

Warning to all Safari users.....

Pwn2Own hacker: Apple Safari is 'easy pickings'Charlie Miller, the security researcher who won last year's Pwn2Own hacker contest, is predicting that Apple's Safari browser will be the easiest target this year.In a note posted on the popular Daily Dave mailing list, Miller describes Safari as "easy pickin's" and forecasts that at least four zero-day Safari flaws will be used during the contest at CanSecWest later this month...Safari: hacked by 4 different people. Easy pickin's as usual.Android: hacked by 1 person. Not too tough but no one owns one.IE8, Firefox: Survive unscathed. The bugs to exploit equation is too hard for $5k.iPhone, Symbian: Survive due to non-executable heap.Blackberry, Windows Mobile, Chrome: I don't know enough to say anything intelligent. That said, they're probably hard/obscure and so survive.Last year, Miller exploited a Safari flaw to hijack a fully patched MacBook Pro machine. He is also known for launching successful attacks against Apple's iPhone and Google's Android platform.Safari predicted to be the easiest target this year...

knex bank style safe

This is my new knex safe. it is called a bank styled because it looks like one and has an extreemly thick back wall made up of 5 layers of knex. yes i did just say 5 layers!!! however it does have some bad points, i made the mechinism to big and almost stops the door opening sou you have to push or pull it to get it open .second  it only has 16 combinations. third the door is easy to take of its hinges. fourth it has little room inside as the mechinism takes up a hell of alot of room.if you want instructions you can either heve istructions for this or saw the ride.

I just want to know if GoFundMe is safe? Is there any frauds that I should be aware of? I know your project will not be seen unless you share the link but I don't mind. I wanted to use Kickstarter but it's only in the US and you need to give a reward. Indiegogo can be used for charity causes but they Take $25 off the final amount for users out of the US. GoFundMe takes 0.30 Cents per donations so it might not be too good? Please let me know what you think. :)

Airsoft Megastore not safe?

When I open Airsoft megastore.com on google chrome, put something into my cart, then hit checkout, Chrome says the site is not safe to input valuable or personal information to. This got me thinking as to why it wouldnt be safe. No security protection against hackers? Or has it been hacked and if I input my credit card info will they be able to steal my info? I just dont want anyone getting ahold of my credit card info and buying stuff... Is ASM a trustworthy site, and Chrome just has a glitch or something that is causing the site to be deemed 'unsafe'? Or is it all a scam? This dillema has stopped me from buying a gun during their black Friday Doorbuster Deals, which was a great deal. Oh well better safe than sorry I guess. Thanks

How to heat a tent- safely?

While I am a a hands-on person, that mostly extends to art and sculpture rather than engineering. Therefore, I thought I ought to bring this question to people with a little bit more knowhow in that area. See, with the cold winter months coming on camping is becoming a little more arduous. More to the point, heating a tent safely is a real problem. I don't trust gas powered heaters....but there's not a whole lot of alternatives out there. So I was wondering if anyone here could think of a way to safely heat a tent for a prolonged period of time. Preferably without gas, electricity, or risk of fire.

electric gun......... Safe? + airsoft

Could you make a coil gun, instead of shooting bolts it shoots a nail. The tip of the nail is dulled. When you fire the nail accelerates to a really fast speed, hit's an airsoft pellet, the pellet goes flying, the nail head gets stuck by a mechanism (barrier). would this be safe, or be a really really bad idea and the pellet won't get that fast. Just asking cause i've always wanted to make some sort of cool electronic gizmo shaped like a gun that does cool stuff, like a coil gun, or maybe makes stuff glow or something, I dunno, something cool ;)

Food safe pump

Hi everyone! I'm working on a halloween costume where I want to have a container of liquid on my back, a hose from said container running down my left arm and a way todispense the liquid through the hose. Right now the dispensing is the problem. Would a windshield washer pump be reasonably safe to use for something that is going to be consumed? I'd buy a new unused one of course. If that's not a good idea, what would be? I've experimented with a can of compressed air to push the drink out but was not fully satisfied with the result.

Is burning enamel safe?

I know one of the easiest ways to rid the magnet wire of its enamel is by burning it with a butane-lighter. Does this release any toxic fumes, however? I work with magnet wire a lot, and am, quite frankly, tired of stripping it with an Xacto. I'd most likely be burning it outside, so it wouldn't be that bad, I suppose.

Is that a fair (generally) statement? I am started to question some of the things I find and read at wiki-im-pedia

Instructables not family safe any more

I was disappointed to see the repeating ad for the AXE Undie Run. I was browsing through Instructables with my 10 year old son and the ad kept appearing at the top of the page. I actually DO care what goes into my child's mind.This is not the kind of content I want my son being exposed to yet. Come on? Women taking their clothes off? Headlines that say "Sexy"? What does this have to do with instructables? This just does not fit in with the otherwise wholesome, educational nature of the site. This means I cannot trust the content on this website to be safe for my kids any longer. If you cannot maintain higher standards than that, then I am forced to boycott this website for my family's viewing.
