Great file sharing service-NOT SPAM

Just wanted to let you guys know that I found a service to share monsterous files, for FREE.
I just bought a company, and had to send a logo for printing to many companies.

I dont have anything to do with this company, I just found it to work really well.

second hard drive

Ok, nice easy question this time. I think I know the answer, but I just want to check. Can I add a second hard drive to a existing computer, simply by plugging it in, and slaving it? I have a existing computer that is running XP, and a dead computer full of files, that was running XP as well. The ol...

The FCC (and our DOC) has beenso busy misdirecting people, as well as the media with the evils of Howard Stern saying the word "Penis", that nobody was watching them rape and pilliage chunks of bandwidth to the highest bidder.

sluggish Micro

I recently bought a arcade machine from the late 80,s, early 90,s. It consists of a large, multi-pin microprocessor, and a memory chip. All chips have had their ID#s obliterated. Heres the question: The unit seens to be "stuck"...not doing anything, until I place my finger across the leads of the cr...

Wireless (inductance) recharging

Im looking for ideas on how to make a circuit that will charge using inductance, very much like a cordless toothbrush. Hopefully I wont have to tear apart a cordless tooth brush for parts. All the circuit has to drive is around 4 or 6 ultrabrite flashing LEDS (hopefully, all flashing at a different ...

I would like to do something about it but wouldn't you know the warranty is up. Big surprise. If you can sue over coffee being hot can't I sue for emotional distress + pain and suffering?

Its really pricy, because its so specialised, and used less, and less every year as less prototyping, or manufacturing is done using these boards.

Yes, interior receivers require a antenna, but the way that they now get around it is that if you subscribe, you can go to the website, and listen there, instead of using the radio, by plugging in your subscription number. The streams for people tht do not have a subsciption are limited, because if ...
