Re: DVD Players

Hey Jolly,<p>Since I have an APEX 500, where can I find that info? Maybe I can fix it once I get it to recognize discs again.<p>CeaSaR

Re: Video Sequencer

Deac_1,<p>Thanks for the link. I actually have this copy "somewhere" around the house. Originally bought it for the Noise-Cancelling Headphones in hopes to adapt it in the fight against those who sit at the nearby traffic light with stereos a-thumpin' and rattling my windows (not Microsoft). I'll ha...

Re: VB1 Help file

I have VB1 installed on an old 386SX running DOS 6.x and Win3.1 and it gives me the error. So does Win98. I'm thinking it is corrupt.<p>CeaSaR

VB1 Help file

I bought a bunch of disks at a yard sale several years ago and some of them had VB1 on them. I had always wanted VB so I VirusScanned them and installed it. The whole program works except for the fact that the help file says it isn't a Windows Help file or is corrupt. Someone on another list told me...

Video Sequencer

Hi everyone.<p>I would like to set up a small video surveillance system with several cameras from Alltronics and a standard VCR (the time periods under question are short and specific, so long running vcr's are not a necessity). I would like to be able to run the cameras through a sequencer prior to...

Re: Popular Electronics Magazine

I have been wondering what it was that finally closed the doors to Gernsback Publications after 90+ years in business. Does anyone know? <p>As far as to how to archive the old mags, you would have to find a format to fit most all computers out there. IE, a low version of a generic Windows wordpad or...

Micro Memories, Nov. 2003

Hi everyone,<p>Ed Driscoll Jr.'s column in Nov. 2003 issue of Nuts and Volts is an interesting look at the rise and slow demise of the once almighty CompuServe. Of particular note to me was the reference to the game ADVENTURE. Several years ago I was at a yard sale and bought a bunch of disks (5-1/4...

Re: IR Remote Receiver

JerryR,<p>How about using a current sensing outlet like the one from Sears ( as mentioned in the - I believe - Q & A section of Nuts and Volts sometime within the past few months )? Plug the VCR into the unswitched outlet and then plug a wallwart xfrmr into the switched outlet, maybe run a flipflop ...

Re: can clipping ruin a subwoofer?

Mike,<p>Speakers are NOT supposed to rattle when they are in use. Rattling usually signifies either a bad speaker, something caught in the spider or surround (as Edd explained), or a problem with the enclosure.<p>If you can hear rattling/scraping when you move the cone, then replace the driver if th...

Re: Programming on a typical computer

You didn't specify if you have a floppy drive or a CD-RW/DVD-RW on your work machine. If so, you can run DOS versions of Basic - most are stand alone versions not requiring a Windows install. Qbasic (the one that shipped with all Win/Dos OS's v9.x and lower) will run off a 3 1/2" floppy using only ~...
