I was working with two of my computers and I accidentally swapped the two hard drives (they contained windows7 and windows10) and when I went to turn one back on it started beeping and now the system won't start up. Does anyone know what this means?
Need to fill this in somehow. The entire floor is fucked and needs to be replaced but the landlord is a cheap bastard. Really just need to fill this and many other holes in what looks like linoleum tile with shitty wood underneath flush with the rest of the floor. The area gets a lot of foot traffic so it will need to be durable.
Was just recommended and then asked to interview for a job that requires 1 year soldering experience and experience with simple electronics. I have minimal experience with the subject, yet the job perks have inclined me to interview anyway.
Tl;dr how do i act like i know what im talking about when it comes to soldering?
Hey /diy/, not really sure if this is worthy of making a thread about, but you fags are the only people who seem to know their shit when it comes to this sort of stuff.
Anyways I was hoping you might be able to help me with something. I'm trying to make a little, nearly impossible to stumble upon, hidey hole. So far my idea is (See included pic for a visual reference) that I can unscrew the bottom of a recessed cabinet, then cut into the drywall and then patch up the hackjob and reassemble everything. However as someone who has never done any carpentry, I really... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>922070 That really does not help with my problems at all, I need long term storage, and assurance that it will not be discovered easily (as some horseshit like a fake faucet or socket would) by any of my co inhabitants. I am not interested in petty dollar store tricks for warding off burglars.
Any ideas how to get an old commercial drain open? I've tried both a 25' snake and hot water with no luck. It's in an old bar so there could be anything in there. I'm thinking it's food, broken glass and plastic straws are blocking the pipe. Pic unrelated.
like what an underground drain? if its not underground you strip it down and clear it out. if its underground you get a drain rod with a big rubber flappy disk on the end that fills the pipe then you pump it in and out of the drain acting like a kind of plunger but with a 2-3 ft stroke length. keep a hose running to wash the shit away. pump until it loosens out to travel further down and become someone elses problem.
>>921991 Would that work to clear out any plastic or glass that is stuck in there? It's an old building with metal pipes so I don't think strong acids would be a good idea. >>921994 It's underneath the bar so it's in a pretty cramped space. Never seen one of those things in any hardware store either. I'm considering getting something like pic related. Anyone have experience with them?
I have a bunch (like 50) LI-ION cells I tore out of defunct / damaged drill batteries (which I've been calling makita cells) and I'm wondering about testing them. I want to be able to graph their discharge cycle and record their true mAh.
First thought about this was have a constant current (or do I need a constant voltage?) load and use an arduino to record the voltage and time, and put it into a csv or something I could graph nicely
However looking online, I've seen things like this http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lipo-Battery-Cellmeter-Balance-Discharge-Capacity-Internal-Resistance-Checker-/271906393076

I'd go with the buying option. If I'm not mixing stuff with Li-Po, discharging this stuff yourself can be dangerous both to you and the battery. Go and buy something which has protection circuits built in, so that you can leave the thing to discharge and do whatever. I've seen many chargers/dischargers that warn you about leaving them unattended as they don't stop working by themselves and rather overcharge / overdischarge the cells.
>>922745 Protection circuits can be bought from ebay or aliexpress. I have a load of 18650s I've pulled from laptop batteries, if you're looking for a cheap and relaible battery tester I highly recommend the liitokala, I got one and it works fantastic.
I'm wanting to make my spring form pan(similar to pictured) water tight as it leaks a bit when I use it in a water bath for my cheesecakes. So what would be a good thing to put on the removable spring bit that would make a good seal when its attached to the base and 'locked' in
>>921937 Seriously? you're trying to over-engineer this >pic related

Are you talking part time or extended rentals like for half a year or more?
If you're in a good centrally located area it'll be easy to rent out rooms to single guys.
Research local print ads and internet sources for going rates of similar rooms and post an ad.
The best people by far in my experience to rent to are young blue collar professionals, i.e. electricians, construction, etc. After that is white collar professionals (not including programmers)... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Is there any reason at all for a bathtub water trap to have a completely open pipe sticking out of the top of it?
Water dripped down into the downstairs hallway after a housemate's visiting parent took a bath. I'm pretty sure there's a clog in the trap and the excess pressure from the bath draining sent right out the top of the pipe.
To make a long story short, the bathroom floor in our house of 9 years is really fucked up and we need to replace it, my point of concern for now is on the toilet pipe ring (the dirty red ring, sorry i don't know much terminology) i need to know if this red ring around the pipe in the pic is still usable or if it would be smart to replace it.
