I actually did think of an idea just now - using one as a home cloud server/torrent box with a 5tb external drive and owncloud or some shit like that. Would the RPi be well suited for this, or is there a better option I should be looking into?
>>910628 A lot of people make seedboxes and servers with their RPI. And again, you want the ram and power of the RPi2 over the 5$ one. You are going to pay triple the price of a Zero buying adapters to get it to run, at that point its only marginally more expensive to get the much stronger one with real HDMI and ethernet built onto it.
This is my first post, so please forgive me for the mass amounts of autism.
I'm looking for a new couple of projects and want to give creating musical instruments. Thinking maybe a cello or guitar, something that will take time, but also be badass. Not looking for professional, just good enough for me. Also, wtf is sound/tone board? I've been doing some research and am lost.
Does anyone have any experience in building instruments? Or any plans they'd be willing to share?
Can't really help you OP but I bought a really cheap electric body and neck online and am stoked about putting it all together. Need to install frets, enlarge a neck pocket, and drill passageways inside the body.
>>908732 The "right" way to do it would be faced (better) or unfaced (cheaper) fiberglass or rockwool batts. Make sure your measurements are good and buy batts that fit your stud width/wall height/thickness. Faced batts are easy because the kraft paper/aluminized paper facing is usually wider than the insulation so you can lay them into the walls and staple up the edges alone or with little help. Then panel as desired. I would at least panel the area near the wood stove and add a further layer of something heatproof,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
cellulose might rot rockwool is currently best for insulation if you're doing it and you're unexperienced, find some earth wool from Knauf for example, which won't fuck up your health while putting them on
aerated/insulated concrete can also be an option, if you find a smart way to cast it
Hey guys, I've got an indoor gardening project that would optimally have a fan blow on it for 30 seconds every hour. Problem is, my fan only continuously blows. Is there something like a light dimmer I can use that would limit it's electricity to what I need it to be?
What projects could I do with an old dreamcast that doesn't work? I was just taking out all the parts and turning it into a case or something, but I would like to do something more creative and fitting for a recycled video game console.
Is there any way to calculate the configuration of mirrors and what they'll reflect.
I've got a gas meter installed facing the wrong way to read it and it requires the meter reader to bring a extendable mirror to check it but half the time they cbf and over quote the bill which leads to a fucktonne of issues to fix it.
I'm thinking of placing mirror panels placed strategically with a togglable LED or something to check it easily, would this configuration of mirrors be readable, or backwards still?

I'm in my 3rd year of Kinesiology studying to be a physiotherapist. And I like what I do, but It's honestly just become mundane to me. It's not bad but its not exciting. I like the idea of helping people. But I'm not exactly proud of the job, you know? Like its not really hard work, you just stand in a nice office all day.

>>911849 Depends mostly on you and your personality, I guess. I got my multidisciplinary bachelor's doing all kinds of different stuff I kinda liked but had no strong feelings about. I dicked around for a while after that and I was pretty satisfied, but it still felt pretty hollow all in all. Signed up for trade school on a whim and it's the best decision I've ever made in my life by far. The more I do it the more I like it. It's the first time that I ever felt like I truly found my way.

Yeah, I'm just having a hard time because I already took time off after school. I feel like I wasted a lot of my life growing up playing video games and fucking around. Never gathered any hobbies or skills. I'll be 30 by the time I get my masters for physio. Not much time to be switching careers at that point. This is again why my friends advise me against it. Trades and tools and all this stuff is brand fucking new to me. I never did any of it growing up.

I've worked in construction on site for 8 years and every day is different. There is however a ceiling to what you can make unless you're willing to take on the responsibility of labour working under you.
I've had offers to go into work in offices at a desk relating to construction and I've tried it but I simply wasn't happy.

Hey /diy/, I recently found this old Kenwood KR-5030 in the basement along with an old record player so I figured I'd set it up, but when I turn on the 5030 the lights flicker and there's an arcing noise coming from where the power switch/speaker selector knob is. I'm not that good with electronics so I have no clue where to start with this thing.
Hey DIY, looking for some help here on something that I'm sure is really simple
A switch for my fog lights in my car broke, and my car being ~12 years old I couldn't find the OEM switch. I ordered a third party one and it fits like stock, it just has these on the back instead of a female plug like the original switch. I'm assuming its the two wires plus a ground since there's 3 spots? But i'm not really sure which is which is the issue. Was hoping for some help in figuring this out.
Pics of the plug and oem switch are coming too.

Hey diy. I have heard rumors that there is a method of desoldering an entire pcb in a few seconds using hot air rework. Then you basically throw all your components in a big ice cream dish and you are set for life. Does anyone know how this would work? Maybe stick it in one of those toaster ovens and then scrape everything off with a knife? Or use a high temperature heat gun?
The solder on PCBs melt around 180 to 230 celcius, if you can heat the solder more than that, it will melt, and components can be removed, or fall off..
Heating an entire board to this temperature, is a bad idea, as most capacitors are not designed to withstand that, they are normally wave soldered. some components, especially larger ones might be glued to the board, then again no success, smaller SMD components will not fall of by them self due the capillary effects of the solder.
And finally, most components can be damage of excessive thermal stress, especially... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I came across this house earlier today, snapped this picture while driving by, the shingles have this pattern across the entire roof and it looks to be done on purpose, none of the other houses in this neighborhood have this, anyone with any roofing experience have any idea how the hell this is done? I've done some wood working and the best I can come up with would be cutting the joists underneath the shingles in profile and then layering thin plywood on top to keep the profile. not sure if I love it or hate, but positive I want to know how the fuck they did it. any input...

prob. custom curved singles - usually made from steamed cedar, or some shit. I doubt theres an actual undulating form underneath, - then again, I really dunno anything about this stuff, desu. Just a guess..
I am going to try and repair/Replace the RAM chips in a commodore 64B (breadbox, grey function keys) I have the chips and am going to replace all of them rather than checking which ones are broken. (only displays 900ish bytes of RAM) How would I go about doing this and what tools do I need besides a soldering iron?
That done, I also have a Commodore 64C that I've been using up to this point. what would you suggest I could do to mod and upgrade it? Since I have 2 and the 64B is the more classic design, I will keep it as it is.
>>912436 All classic micros have a flat memory layout: a single address bus and data bus wend their way around the system, connecting RAM, ROM and peripherals to the same flat address space.
The C64 has basic bank switching, but all it really amounts to is a helper chip fiddling with some address lines to shadow the ROMs.
Write yourself a version of memtest86, step through the areas where RAM is supposed to be, and when you find the addresses where the RAM isn't working, that'll point you to what isn't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
as Far as upgrades go, I want to try an internal SD expansion, a reset button, a RAM expansion to 128k. I also want to see if their is any way to make the read speed or loading time frequency reduce. If this can be fixed by simply more RAM, I'm all for that, be it internal or external.
Heat it and cut it with a chisel. Use a band saw, dremel, drill holes in the area you want cut and then grind it clean, temper it to make it softer for cutting, cut it with a torch, score it and try and snap it in a vice, bend it back and forth until it fatigues and breaks, cut it with an explosive shaped charge, slice it with thermite, mind bullets, corrode a line across it with salsa and a DC power source
