I just set this up and it works fine but I get some juice where I shouldn't. I haven't tried plugging to the grid yet, but when I switch on the batteries I read something like 1 volt in the red&black wires that I'm supposed to plug to the grid. If I touch the red wire with my finger I can feel a tiny bit of current, although I'm isolated from the ground. What is this faggotry ? All the connections are made with electrical tape which is kind of lame, but there's no short circuit as far as I can tell.

Plz halp

You shouldn't be touching anything you tie into the grid anytime soon.

I need to create a software using Structured systems analysis and design method (SSADM), what class of software recommend me to create in one month?.

i have knowledge in Python and SQL

SSADM sucks, use RUP

usually these kinds of exercises involve some sort of host-client type of thing, involving many interfaces and modules, so I suggest you make a website or something, such as a simple social media platform or shopping site.

JS front end, Python back end, and SQL database.

I'm not familiar with the SSADM model unfortunately, and I don't know what sort of scope you're looking at for the project. I'm going to guess small to medium since it's for a class.

Maybe a media organiser, e.g. search by tag, mime type (with wildcard e.g. video/* for all videos in the database), keep a list of folders (spec'd...

Any knappers on here? I'm trying to find the best commercially available tile to practice knapping with. There are all sorts of porcelain and ceramic tile available but most of them lack the fractious qualities of real stone. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Also, knapping general?

Hey /diy/, I do not know where the hell post this so I'll do here.
This is my new room and is so depressing to be in such a small space, so I need your help to give me some recommendations on how to decorate or things or put things away.

Computer in closet, bed to the right of the door so you have the lamp to read under, and ffs get that shelf somewhere not in front of a window.

Additional ideas include shag carpeting, disco ball, purple lightbulbs and tasteful nude art on the wall.
>>
The first glaring mistake is the cubby in front of the window. Get that moved somewhere else.

If the scene outside the window is decent, then put your workspace there if possible. Facing out a window while working increases productivity and mood.

Secondly, plants. Plants not only clean the air and regulate humidity, but they benefit mood.

Thirdly. You have a lot of unused space. Without a dimensioned layout, its hard to tell. But can your single bed fit against the entrance wall and closet wall? With the desk against the window youll have significantly more open space that isn't constrained by use items. In the open space put a bean bag chair or small comfortable chair to relax in.

So last weekend a pretty bad hail storm came through and damaged all my family's cars. Insurance came through and now my father wants to repaint my car with me (my first car, and he wants me to be a jack of all trades).
Currently my car is silver, pic semi related. We discussed painting it a better color, such as black or some other dark color. However, he said that there are limits on how much difference in colors the old paint and new paint can be. He sent me to figure out how different we can paint my car now, but I've searched Google and can't find anything...

Yes. My father and I will be doing as much of the work as we can ourselves. He's painted his truck before, so he knows how to do it and has all the tools, we just need to know more about how much we can change the color

Guys I need help, I'm getting my dream job interview but haven't worked as carpenter for 2 years now, can anyone please explain how to do it properly?

Don't understand the first part (scribe veneer to a jig), but if I'm reading right about the 15mm MDF, it sounds like you have to just cut an angle, and it's veneered as well? Take a knife and a speed square, use the square to find your angle, scribe it fairly deeply on the veneer side so you don't tear it up, and try to keep the saw square (straight down) as you cut.

Like i said, I don't really understand because it sounds like either english isn't your native language, or this is a troll post.
>>
>>1022707

I'm not sure about that veneer to jig too but it might mean that they want me to get a jig as a template to cut out veneer for some element.
Yes I'm not native speaker although I understand & have a vast array of words in my disposal I might sound a little off sometimes, still here in UK many people say I sound like American, it's funny since I'm Polish and it doesn't happen very often to have a verbal combination like that where I'm from.

I'd like to mount this 55" on a swivel above my fireplace because of the odd layout of my apartment, but there are no studs in the middle. The studs are on either side and 40" between them. Could I mount a swivel on one of the studs and push the TV to the center when not in use? Aren't there mounts built for this?

Heating the cast iron pan from the bottom is important. That way the heat will spread through the metal and radiate.

I've had great success making pizza in cast iron, but never done it in a solar cooker.

54 KB,
19 years old, disabled physically (and a bit mentally) now but used to be a carpenters helper. What tools should I get for my small work bench? (going to be building furniture, hacking apart old furniture and rebuilding it, touching up, etc.) Someone else is going to be bringing me wood.

List I have so far is:
>12 set wood carving knife kit
>Stanley adjustable bench plane
>4'' vise
>6'' bench grinder
>Ryobi Circular Saw, 7 1/4'' Diablo Blade
>Black & Decker ROS 5'' (comes with a 10 pack of 5 inch discs wit grits ranging from 60-220)
>Black & Decker Drill 20V rechargeable Li-ion (with 10 piece double end screwdriving bit set and a 10 piece drill bit set, I'll get a screw gun for convenience when I have money)
>1 5/8 inch and 2 1/2 inch screws

I understand the market is oversaturated. I understand it is most likely I will end up homeless. Regardless I'd like to give it my best and would appreciate replies to achieve my goals. Worst case scenario the doctors write me up for disability.

One more thing, an old friend told me the B&D sander wont last and the discs go super easy, any experience with this? Is manual sanding the way to go?

You might wanna try doing business locally on Craigslist before going "nationwide". Every time I've ordered something that came on a pallet shipping was like 200-400 bucks.

Build up some capital before you go all out. Hell, maybe use that those first couple of projects to increase your tool inventory. Miter saw, compressor, nail guns hell even more sanding discs.
