Books

I happened across this site the other day but haven't had the time to look into it. http://www.knovel.com/ It appears to be an engineering/scientific computerized book archive with many interesting titles. The subscription appears to be quite expensive but if you register you get a 24hr period where...

Plans

If it is built to the specs the plan suggests, I do not foresee functional problems with the fuels you mention, though I've never specifically built this one. The Bailey seems to be one of the easier one's to functionally construct. Now if you scale it up or down, that often presents problems to the...

Stuff

The creation of one of these has many variables based on what you intend to use it for. If you're going to use it for flight, materials and systems must obviosuly be pretty light. If you are using it for experimentation it can be built with many different configurable options. If you building one fo...

At the moment all of the documents we send and receive from my corporation are pretty much PDF's due to customer requests and I think the technology is around here for a while until some other wing-nut comes up with something different to further complicate our lives. We bitch when there is too many...

Hotstuff

My mother works at a horticultural research facility and they've been messing with peppers for a few years now and have come up with some pretty wicked peppers. They are some funky crossbreed of Scotch Bonnets and Tepin peppers with a dash of Habanero or something to that extent. I think their going...

AC/DC

AC and DC systems are much different than each other, but kind of the same... If memory serves me correctly power comes from the generating station through the HOT/LIVE/BLACK wire goes into the electrical device and the returns to the generating station via the NEUTRAL/WHITE wire. Neutral and Ground...

Violence

Mankind will only increase in violent tendencies until the point where it destroys itself or gains the foresight to step back and see through another persons eyes and recognize a person as a human being without being absolutely blinded by income, age, location, gender, race, religion, color...

QKits

If you are thinking of going the way of AM I've use some of these devices from this place before: http://www.qkits.com/serv/qkits/qkitscat/catalog.asp?Page=4&ccat=RF Check out the RX433 + TX433 kits. Cheap too but I can't recall the range. They actually have quite a bit of goodies on the site, have ...

Parts

Is there any markings in the vari-caps and/or manufacturer so you can look up the exact specs? Sometimes these things have a very small range on the radio, much less than a radio station so when your testing, do it with the volume cranked on the radio and move the dial real slow and then adjust the ...

Pieces

Did you substitute any components? Have you tried it with different variations for the inductor? Have you checked and ensured that all components are in the right orientation?

Things that go BOOM in the night..

I guess there maybe a few reason it may be illegal in your area. It's obviously somewhat explosive and very poisonous but can also be used to make methylamine which is a component of some funky illegal drugs. And yes it can be made into detonator type devices. Air bag munitions are not generally mad...

There are only 10 numbers in binary, 0 and 1

Binary would be a very simple system but unfortunately people have now thought up fuzzy logic. So now things are ON or OFF or Almost Off or Almost ON or UNKNOWN or NEITHER OFF NOR ON or KINDA OFF AND ON AT THE SAME TIME... Pi would be an interesting system as I assume it's pretty much a constant in ...
