In making a guitar pick-up, do the wire that is winded around the bobbin need to be insulated? or they don't have to be? Answered

I am trying to make a guitar pick-up. At the moment, I couldn't get my hands on a 48 gauge wire so I just used a 20 gauge wire from the dollar store and I don't think its insulated (I just want to try it out first and see if it works, its the first one I'm making anyway _ ). So my question is does the wire need to be insulated or not?

I give up..... Ok, you inspired me to finish it....so no complaints about it's appearance.... ;-)

I really do now. I have tried to recover a blunder done on a large wooden egg I was going to enter into the Egg contest (pyrograph + ), but I have ruined it beyond repair. The pyrography portions take so long to do on a curved surface....I don't think I have the patience to get another and retry. This is a bit depressing really. Maybe I should go back to just doing electronics and leave the pretty things to those with an eye for it. *sigh*I added the "finished" pictures to the end......

120 GB Xbox 360 Drive, but no high-speed internet. What to do with it?

I got an Xbox 360 Elite for Christmas. It comes with a big-ass 120 GB hard drive, and it already has some demos and videos that came with it, but you can't copy music, videos, etc. onto the drive from USB devices, and I don't have high-speed internet, so I can't download anything onto it. What can I put on it from local sources, then? I mean actually putting stuff onto it, not streaming stuff from my PC.

Get rid of the SIGN UP pop-up

Nowadays many sites do this very horrible thing that is really annoying to the point I just want to throw my monitor out the window or beat the crap out of my monitor with my keyboard over and over. When you go to a site, like this one, you are reading the article, instructable, watching a video (or whatever), and few seconds to 2 mins later, the screen dims and a pop-up comes out saying "do you want to sign up?" Other sites might say "do you want to subscribe?" "Click "like" if you like this article" This is one of those things that's really fking annoying. If people want to sign up, they can click on it in the top right corner. The sheer amount of sites that do this, that forces you to read their pop-up, making you close it everytime. The only thing I am interested in is the instructable/artcle I was currently reading... This site would be decent if you removed it.

How is the site set up? Is it based on how old or new an instructable is? Is it based on likes or views?

I just recently discovered this site, and so far I love it. I'm trying to go through the different tutorials. However, I've noticed that some are repeated, don't show up where they were previously, etc.

Whats up with haterz?

Haterz. Stupid, stupid, haterz. What is up with them? I mean, lets take a random example, a few days ago I posted the TR18 (with KILLERK's permission) and it rose up to 4.02* within a few days. Now I checked that a few hours ago, and it was still as 4.02*, and then about 10 mins later, it had gone straight down to 3.85* because some stupid hater gave it 0.5* for no reason whatsoever! Anyway, I just decided that I would share that with you, thanks!

use a landline telephone, speakers, a mic, and a computer to go online with dial-up

Would it be possible to use a landline telephone, a computer with speakers and a microphone, and a software program to connect to the internet with dial-up? there are multiple free dial-up numbers available, so if I called with the phone, and used the computer to emulate an analog modem and listen to the response with the microphone, would I be able to get online? if so, does anything like this already exist?

App messing up and Adverts

It's been a while since I used this app. The number 1 reason is because the app messes up a lot and there have been no attempts to fix it. For some reason they decideded to make it so you have to sign in every time you use the app even if it was just 10 min ago. The problem is that you can't sign in from your app. It switches to the web browser to sign in and when you click facebook or sign in half the time it doesn't switch back to the app and the other half it just doesn't sign in. I started using the app again and here it is 2 years later and they still have not fixed the problem. Now I notice that it has advertisements in the middle of people's posts thanks for eating up my data. If these problems are not fixed I won't be using this again

I want to make this lamp, please help!

WARNING: Mechanically inexperienced Newbie post below. Your patience is appreciated. :)Some of you may have seen this lamp online somewhere:http://www.hulgerisation.com/?page_id=60I'd like to try and make a lamp that works like this. As mentioned above, my experience is virtually non-existent when it comes to taking machines apart and hacking into them, but I possess a decent amount of common sense, and I'm pretty handy when it comes to tools. I'd like this to be my first project of this type. It seems simple enough: take a lamp base, a clock spring and a dynamo flashlight aaaand.... then what? Okay, so maybe it's not so simple. But to some of you, I'm sure it's probably a piece of cake, right? So if you've got the time and would like to explain how to do this, I'd truly appreciate your help.I found this instructable to be informative, https://www.instructables.com/id/The-Wind-up-Headboard-Reading-Light/but ultimately, it's not what I'm looking for. The key is the key for me with this lamp. It is visually appealing to me. Secondly, I would like lighting component to be that of a standard lamp- incandescent or CFL. If anyone has some kindly advice to offer, I would truly appreciate it. Thank you for reading!

Cheap eye glitter sealant?

I love wearing glitter on my eyes but hate it when it starts flaking off. Eyeshadows with shimmers and glitter particles are too subtle for the look I'm trying to achieve. Vaseline is too gloopy and so the glitter never stays in place and MAC's EZR is far too expensive for me. Topshop did a glitter sealant a few years ago but I've never seen it since. Anybody seen it in the shops lately? Does anybody have any other suggestions of how to keep eye glitter in place?
