Im building a new fence for my granpa and hes nagging me not to sink poles into melted bitumen composure, he claims just charring them with fire is enough to prevent rot "it has been done like that for ages", so is he just annoying me again out of boredom or does he have a point ?
>>918497 Umm, you just buy treated timber posts. Ones rated for sinking into the ground. Unless you're set on milling your own trees to make the posts, just buy the right fucking timber by asking the people at the hardware store for fence posts.
Given that sleep masks aren't really an option, I want to cover my windows at night to make my room darker. "Blackout curtains" are expensive, what is the cheapest, simplest DIY option? I don't care about aesthetics, I am looking 100% at functionality.
Jesus H. Christ can you even dress your self? Hang a heavy blanket, or maybe cardboard, over the window. Fucks sake you are blessed with the most sophisticated brain of any known species, use it. Fuck.
Its 8x9x5 inches and is made from what used to be a variable power supply. The first thing that came to mind was putting a mini itx motherboard in there and having a nixie clock home theater PC case, but I'm interested in what other people could come up with. Any ideas?
Well, I am currently helping my partner make video for YT. I am doing much of the actual physical work. So I am currently learning about 5 point lighting, making a decent white screen/green screen, diy-ing some softboxes (for diffuse lighting),
We use Adobe Premiere Pro for editing and because we don't have good cameras we use our phones. One phone is the steady shot and the second is for close ups etcs.
Audacity for voice over work is good.

Does anyone have experience with designing their own home security system? I don't have a huge budget and am not necessarily looking for anything sophisticated. Just something to prevent Home Burglary.
But I'd like to talk about this regardless. First up, could you be a little bit more specific regarding what you'd like to do here, basically the general scope of the operation.
Are you looking to basically just mix and match various purchased components? Would you like to fiddle about with electronics and build your own system from scratch? You should clarify those sorts of things.
Then there's obviously the matter of budget and skills.
>>917606 >Just something to prevent Home Burglary. That is not a security system then. All they do is alert someone when someone is breaking in. Maybe its an audible alarm to scare them off, maybe its a call to a monitoring agency, maybe its just alerts you. To keep it from happening you need things like bars, shutters, security doors, etc. A sensor on a window and a bell aren't going to 'prevent' anything as they only go off after it has happened.
