In a fit of edgelord rebellion against my divorcing parents I took a pair of scissors and inscribed the word "FUCK" on the wall, and now that I've come to my senses, I need to know how to fix the wall before they find out.
>>1007429 Carve "fuck" repeatedly across all walls and when they seem upset just say that's just the pattern of the wallpaper and it has always been that way. Also hang two nooses in their closet so they know that they've been successful parents.
>>1006874 Is the saran wrap covering both the glass and bowl? And the sun would give enough heat? Would it be worth it to line the bowl with something reflective like tin foil/find a bowl that's reflective inside?
Prob more what you need - at $2k for the 13.3" Dev Kit linked, or 5k for a 32", slightly more expensive than the $70 for your original. But $70 is not cheap if it dont work either, it looks like a 4 y.o. limited segment controller only - doubt will do what you want.
Someone who knows this stuff maybe have better idea tho, I dont.
>>1006457 Presumably the cost is in the embedded board + support + software license. $2000 or $5000 for a display, even if it were 80% of the cost, would be excessive and pretty much guarantee that no one will ever do a volume order.
I recently bought a loft with high ceilings and a sloping roof. There is a sprinkler system attached to the roof with a central spine at the highest elevation and three 'legs' that extend both sides of the slope. Along each 'leg' there are three power outlets controlled by a switch panel. By neighbors hang lights and I was looking to do the same.
I was able to hang pendants at the lowest elevation (14.5') but cannot hang anything higher due to height. I was looking to hang string lights along the central... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've been working on a solution to this very problem. Details are hush hush at this point but until I have it patented I can only release a sketch. I can also tell you the key to it's functionality is pallet wood and a strong shipping container base
I got this fucking hole in my wall that i have to fix for my landlord. I don't know the materials or what's that kind of walls are called so i can't search on the internet. If any of you guys know, i'll be glad to learn.
And you're not going to match that texture (wallpaper?) anyhow. Is this now our weekly /diy/ I fucked up my landlord's property thread or is it just graduation time and every frat idiot is moving out? Geez
Hey /diy/ i have a garden but since i live in southern California i need to conserve water and I end up loosing a lot of water to evaporation. I was thinking of setting up a pergola with wide spaced rafters over the garden to reduce sun exposure allowing the soil to retain more water. Can anyone attest to how well this would work and how it would affect the more sun hungry plants such as my citrus?
So I am about to build a router fence but I don't understand it completely. Can someone please tell me what is the purpose of the slots that pic related it telling me to cut into the face and the sub face? I understand the slot on the side of the base is to attach clamps, but I don't see the point of the other slots so I am guessing I don't completely understand the power of the router fence.
This place I'm looking at has these odd jacks next to every since outlet. I think they're for phone lines. Should I replace the whole gang or just clean it up and leave it? I'd have to patch a new drywall at every box.. The place was built in the early 70s and it's interesting then you could literally plug your phone in anywhere in the house.
Hello all, I was wondering if anyone had any idea what might be going on. I have a payne furnace and A/C. The other day I noticed not much was coming out of my vents even though my AC was running. So I turned on the furnace and the same thing happened. So I turned both off and the fan on. I heard the fan run or something run. I could feel air coming out of a small hole near the red circle but above where the blue circle is would be a closed vent in my system. Which I wouldn't feel anything coming out of.
After turning everything off and back on it suddenly decided... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
If your coils are clean and it's locking up for no reason it could be low freon as well. You need a license to do the freon so you may need to pay someone. First though do what anon said clean and in freeze.
>>1005472 Don't mean to hijack your thread but if we're doing HVAC general I have a question.
My outdoor compressor won't turn on in the hot summer days and lately the only thing that puts it back in motion is tapping the capacitor plate. I've heard that I might need to replace shit because it could be losing its charge but in most of those cases they say spinning the fan blades manually with a stick will get it started and in my case that won't work. Any advice guys?
Ok so i want to make some chainmail, but i dont want to have this gap thing that most modern chainmail has inbetween each circle, so how do i take my chainmail to the next level without sacrificing durability (making a solid loop)?
For the most part. They're on the left thumb, on the inside of the thumb next to the web. Can't feel them, but I can see them. There was a longer one that got lodged in there, was able to get most of it out but there's still a bit remaining. (Literally a single strand)
I've gotten all sorts of weird shit in my body from raw porcelain to lacquer paint in my eyes so I mean it's anyone's guess
Planning on renting this basement for approx 300 usd a month in downtown The Hague/Holland. I will live here for about four years by myself. So, it's obviously a cool space to live for a 21yo guy getting his degrees.
Anyway, I have some cool ideas for this extremely large space.. and hopefully you have some too.

I got a coon problem (not niggas) and need fresh ideas for ridding of them. Any options are appreciated, and i'm fine with killing if it works. Not many powertools but plenty of resources to build traps. Again, cheers
Hi, Haven't used my TV for a while, need it now. I have a problem with the remote. All the keys I've used regularly work, but I need the "OK" key and it doesn't work.
Here is a pic a the remote's circuit. Green : functioning key. Red : out of order key. Already googl'd and shit, so I tried, - use a pencil to add graphite (conductor) both on the circuit and the key, didn't work - desperate solution from a completely opposite theory : clean with alcohol (...). Obviously didn't work.
Any ideas with daily life... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
had to buy a TV adapter when they changed airwave TV to digital and now they're switching to digital + HD, I want my OK button to try a channels search before having to buy another adapter for HD digital
Why assume the contacts are the problem? The only way they'd become non-functional is if they got coated in something (like spilled drink) or just got worn off outright. They look to be in good condition and you already cleaned them, so it's likely an issue elsewhere.
>>1008827 the problem is with the buttons I use the least, so maybe oxydation? (didn't spill anything) I'd say oxydation + by cleaning I probably removed the carbon coating yes the problem could be elsewhere, but most buttons work, so that discards a lot of suspects. Maybe the circuit is broken (I tried to push the button very hard), but I don't see any cut with the naked eye.
There is a little gate that is controlled by a motor that allows the flow of air, it's pretty basic, getting to it however is not. It means disassembly of the dash, that's plastic and brittle from 2 decades of sun and heat.
Or maybe that gate is for the heater core? it's been 10 years since I did anything like this on a car.
Is it worth fixing? Basically you put the blade in and it turns on like normal but the blade isnt moving anymore so it's obviously useless and I need it because I scrap metal for a living. Have no idea what happened to it or what's wrong. But if like to try and fix it myself. What should I do?
Picked this flask up yesterday and it had a little metal disc with a stupid weed leaf on it. After prying that off theres all this old glue (pic related) that I cant pry off, is there some solvent or something I can use?
>>1007334 Are you aware that specialized chemical plants are built to the purpose, right? They mainly use air liquifiying to achieve it. You know how hard and expensive is that process? My best bet is to run some electrolysis reaction that releases O2 (since the rest ofthe reactions i know consume it) and then compress it. But with out any calc, i can guess that you'll need like 10 to 100 times the volumen of the tank in pure O2 to proceed to compressing, wich i'm not entirely sure that can be done with home...

Making a 208cm (82inch) wide 108cm high (43inch) wooden tool wall with some offcolour random planks I have laying around. An extra bit will go in the corner. Will paint it red/white/blue (Dutchfag), illuminate it from above and use nails/hooks/magnets etc. to keep the tools in place. Heavy tools go on the bottom.
Any /diy/-tier tips that can make it that little bit better than my uncreative mind could on its own? Google has retarded suggestions like just sticking the tools in foam.
>>1007104 sticking tools in foam isn't retarded, it is called shadow boxing. It is how you know where tools go and what is missing at a glance. It is meant for cabinets though. On a wall you outline the tool and fill in the outline
you have 2 options, use more blankets, and different kinds of blankets, wool filled quilts are awesome, but thick fleece blankets are pretty damn good too, get the queen sized ones and fold it in half and get in between it like a taco, put a thick plush comforter under a thick heavy blanket on top,, you'll be toasty as long as it doesn't go under freezing
if it does get below zero c, get a winter camping sleeping bag, you'll feel weird at first but you'll stay warm
if you want to be up and around, you need winter clothing, honestly sleep with... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I have this seven port USB hub, four ports USB3, three ports USB2. One day the USB2 ports stopped working, USB3 ports still work fine, I noticed maybe a day later that the USB2 end of the hub was very warm. I opened it up and giving it a bit of power found that the source of the heat is the USB2 controller chip (U4). I have tried to find a short to ground to no avail, USB7 looks a bit dodgy but not enough that it would make the controller chip overheat.
Even then, if I find the fault somewhere else what is the likelihood... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
you're gonna fuck it up with the soldering iron. even experienced people have trouble with SMT components. fortunately, it's very easy to just cut the pins one by one: press down with an x-acto knife. you can leave the discarded pins behind, or scrape them away getly using the iron.
I am renting a house, and would love to be able to have a place to sit, eat, grill etc, but there's no deck or patio area, see pic related is theback door. The landlord also won't let me build a patio for some stupid reason and wants it left with the stairs just ending in the lawn.
Is there something I can throw down on the ground to make a temporary patio like surface while I live here?
Ok, so I tried this thread over in /adv and got bitch slapped, with one exception, for no real reason. Yes the key is stupidly simple. Yes any moron could pick this lock. But how? Why is the lock this key opens a joke? What is a technical explanation of why this is a bad key? I need this when I go to wreck the apartment management. And now, the earlier post:
So I come home for lunch today and some asshole is trying to rob my apartment. It's a small studio. I'm in the doorway, there's no other way out. He's hiding behind the wall separates the kitchen... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
