Re: Project for interested 10 yr old

OK, here's the scoop. I looked through my junk "pile" and came up with several Jim-Paks of 2n3904/06's, tons of resistors (mostly 1/4 watt, various values), many electrolytic and ceramic caps (also various values and voltages). Looked in Radicle Slack and found that the single most prevalent transis...

Re: Project for interested 10 yr old

Read a post get a reply! That's what I call service. Yes, that is pretty much what I am looking for. Does anyone have a schematic and parts list I could use? One channel would be enough for me to duplicate out to stereo. I would still like to walk into RS and buy all the components from the boxes. M...

Re: Project for interested 10 yr old

Hey!<p>You 2 got in there before I could post. Peter - my thoughts exactly. Like I stated originally, his buds at school don't get into the guts of things. It's easier to buy new instead of fixing or building. If he can build this amp, his next project would probably be an alarm to keep his little b...

Re: Project for interested 10 yr old

So far,<p>1. Rat Shack doesn't have S*** in the way of real kits anymore. The only time they have anything close to what they used to have back in the late 70's and early to mid 80's is around now. But they are just the snap together/springclip all in one type thing - which I already have, thank you...

Project for interested 10 yr old

With the holiday season here and some time off coming up, I thought I'd let my 10 yr old son build something to get him started in electronics. Though I've been an avid reader of many publications for over 15 years, I still am not at the design end (the thread on CIE reminds me how well real schooli...

Re: A vision

Did someone say science FICTION? OK, good sf is based on fact, but a writer has leeway with the truth. Perhaps this should be Science Fantasy?<p>Dean - loved Silent Running when I saw it premiered on TV. Just rented it last year - even made my non-techie sister-in-law fall in love with the little bo...

Re: Floating point equations to integer equations?

First thing that comes to mind is: 'to raise a number to a power use the carrat sign between the number to be raised and the power'. Ie: 2.45^20is 2.45 raised to the 20th power or 60718591.32 (that's as far as my handheld calc goes). At least that's the way QuickBasic does it.<p>Here's a sample:<p>1...

Re: midi player

TrayPlayer is a REALLY small piece of software (37K) that plays most any sound file your computer can play - cda, midi, mp(123), rmi, wav, au, etc. If it isn't on the list, you can associate it with TrayPlayer. You can random play, repeat play, play on startup. Just cruise to a music folder/drive a...

Re: Web Site Building

Check out my first post on this thread for 2 authoritative site on HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language). Many of your questions should be answered there. Also, if you can find it, look for Wilbur HTML (that's HTML 3.0 specs). It can be had as a web based help file (it comes with EZPAD 3.0). Wilbur help...

Re: DVD to VHS

1. If you don't have a DVD player on your computer, then the cost goes up accordingly. If you do, then great!<p>2. These little boxes have fine print telling you that they remove the copy protection, along with more fine print telling you that they are not for illegal duplication. I use a SIMA video...

Re: teddy ruxpin

Teddy never moved again :eek: . Poor little bear. If I recall correctly, the group that killed Teddy was Quiet Riot.
