I don't know where to ask for pointers about this. I'm having a bit of a problem with this room. This used to be a bedroom but it's now being used to throw shit in. It has been getting worse for years. I keep procrastinating instead of sorting shit up there.
How should I go about cleaning all this mess? There's a lot of shit there, from the top of the pile, a 32" LCD TV, a 20" standard TV, a piano, computers, computer monitor, a complete home stereo system, arcade machine and all kinds of electronic junk. I was into electronics but... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Let me 'Reaganize' this for you(bullet point it out): - You want to change a room fm storage to utility. - fixing and storing a bicycle.
Things are stored there that haven't been used, some ever. - Decision time: Keep the stuff, or not? - If keep, figure out a way to store it. - If not, sell it or donate it to charity. > I don't know the word 'skip'. I hope this at least gets you underway. When I clean a room, I always leave a flat 1ft x 1ft area near the door. If something is supposed... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>919999 Can you describe the problem any better? Does it do absolutely nothing, or just not what you want?
Your code doesn't look right. The LCD only has 16 characters per line but your text strings are 26 chars long with more than half of them as just as white space. The text is only going to be visible during the first half of the printing loop, and this goes by really fast. (250 microseconds per character)
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.
I'm trying to clean an old flash and I need to open it up. These things have capacitors.
I fired the flash after I had removed the batteries. Does this mean the capacitor is fully discharged now? Can I even do this safely without waiting weeks for it to discharge naturally and without buying resistors?
>>919822 It is most likely discharged, yes. Just touch a screwdriver across the two capacitor leads. I've shocked myself off of one before, and somebody else on purpose. It's no big deal, you'll be fine.
Whats the difference in harassing wind vs solar energy? I would imagine that wind turbines needs more maintenance and do not have as high of longevity when compared to solar. I believe this because of moving parts. Or am I wrong because the Sun Lord burns your panels and wires and batteries
/diy/, I have a weird fucking problem. I just moved my PC into an HAF 912 case, and I can get the mobo and case fans to spin up, but I get NOTHING but a black screen unless I use the old dell case power switch (OEM).
Now, I traced the wires on the OEM switch to line up the new power switch, because a pinout diagram for this motherboard doesn't fucking exist. I match everything up precisely, power switch, HDD LED, power LED... except a couple on the OEM switch on the bottom that don't go to anything. There's no reset button on the OEM switch, it appears... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Dear /diy/, How are you this Christmas eve? I'm wanting to make my own converter on my own pcb, but am a little confused as to what is on EVERY SINGLE CONVERTER. The little black box and what might be resistors? Why isn't it just direct wired to the different port? both ports use the exact same voltages, so why the extra hardware?
p.s. upon further thought, maybe it's a voltage regulator? to step-down/step-up the voltages to match?
>>919723 OP, some things are more expensive and too much of a pain in the ass to make yourself. The connectors you need to use for this are all surface mount, so you need a PCB to mount them on, so by the time you bought the parts, designed and had the PCB fabbed, and put it together, you could have bought 10 of the things online ready-made. Don't sit there and tell me 'I want the experience of building it' or 'I'm doing it for fun', because there are much more fun and rewarding things you could... Comment too long.

A stupid project I want to do is make a kart/mini cycle car with a bike engine, cuz revving to 15k going 60+ on a kart sounds like a blast. But I want to mount the drive package to the front but still have it rwd because 1) mounting it to the back is too easy so that's no fun and 2) weight up front means less wheelie. I could run a long ass chain through a conduit but that would be an absolute pain. I toyed with how to adapt the chain drive to a driveshaft system with bevel gears as a ring and pinion but it would also probably be a pain to get it right and reliable.... Comment too long.
