Question, I'm buying a car with manual windows and door locks. I want to upgrade it to power windows and door locks.

Would it be easier to learn to install the power with after-market kits or could I troll junkyards for the same doors and switch them out and just paint everything?

Early today I posted a thread about water backing up into my bathtub with a dirty tub. Cause it's filled with shitty water.
This should diagnose it.

1. When theres water in the toilet and you plunge it it goes into the bathtub.

2. When you replunge it, it comes back into the toilet

i would use 12V dc and pick up a starter motor from a car
and if its too low on rpm you can put a chain or belt to gear it.

I need to program an arduino pro mini. I do not have an FTDI programmer. I do have an AVR pocket programmer. I do have an arduino uno.

what is the best way to program the pro mini? for now i am using an arduino uno without the IC inserted. but can I use the AVR programmer? or would it be cheaper to either build or buy an FTDI programmer?

Hey, never been to this board but I thought I'd ask here
I'm planning on building a computer 'cause I just have a laptop and I'd like to have a desktop. I don't really want to buy a pre-made one, knowing that with the same amount of cash I pay for said pre-made I can probably invest in building an even better computer
So I ask, what's a good place to search for parts? I've been checking out slickdeals, newegg and fry's. Any tips?

South African here 220v 50Hz

I want to convert to my house lighting to use LEDs powered by solar.
I have two options -
Solar charger , battery, 12v LED lamps (Efficient but higher current over long cable runs could lead to energy losses)
or
Solar charger, battery, interter, 220v LED lamps (inefficient DC to AC conversion but lower current over cables and less hassle and expense swopping out existing fitting.

Howdy DIY -

Interested in DIY Thermoforming/vacuum forming.

Saw a thread here a few nights ago and it got me thinking.


Anyone have experience or knowledge on the subject that you could lend?

Ok, give me 5 States. And I'll tell you if I live in one of them? 1 of them being where you're at obviously. I was going to offer to help you if you somehow live around the block from me.

Hey /diy/ I'm in a college dorm, and we're required to keep the non-adjustable AC on, and it's really fucking cold. Any ideas for how to easily heat the place up?

so i installed 2 amps into my car myself. and they have been fine for about a year. the sub was not attached properly and it fell over with both amps screwed to each side, it continued to work and i forgot about it. about 2 weeks later i was driving, and the sound cut out for a few seconds, and came back every now and then, and then it just stopped. i cant figure out why it is not working now, its driving me mental.

any ideas?

Hey /diy/! I'm not sure how quick this board is, so it might be a bit early to post this considering I'll be taking off soon. I'm from /fit/, and I've recently picked up quite a few books for the fitness subject and got all of my textbooks for my Personal Training course. With all of this new stuff, I decided I'd like to challenge myself and build a bookcase. I work at a Pier One Imports doing their truck, and they're giving away some pretty nice boards that I'm going to pick up to see if I can't use them for this. Any tips or good links that you all can hook me up with? I'd appreciate it fellas!

>tl;dr Your best/favorite weekend project?

Going to town tomorrow and thought about buying some stuff for a nice weekend project. The Cookie jar lamp felt like an option, but i'll bet there's lots and lots of other stuff to do.
Now I'm looking for some other things to create - ideas?
Also, swedefag. So preferably something that's not dependent on extremely hot weather etc...

Thanks.

I want to know what is the best way to go about simulating a Drobo setup, because I have plenty of drives and old motherboards that still work hanging around the house--but not $800 to spend on a 5-bay enclosure.

I figure that FreeNAS would be a good way to go, seeing as how it has support for ZFS now and that would be the best way to simulate a DROBO setup.

I am not looking for speed. I am looking for partial redundancy but I don't need something like a full mirror. ZFS is what I am looking at, seeing as how I can just remove a smaller disk and replace it with a larger disk when I get them. FreeNAS just went to 8, but it is lacking a lot of other features that I wanted in the NAS like bittorrent support and the like. But really, space is the #1 priority at the moment. Oh, and not something that costs money. I am willing to configure command lines.

Picture unrelated--I just installed Win7 and this is all I have on this machine at the moment.

I need to make an account on a website, but I need an email address. But I don't want to use my real email address. Is there any way around this other than going to yahoo.com or something and creating a dummy account?

What are some DIY type things (crafts or whatever) that I can make and sell for a reasonable amount of profit? I'm not talking about making my living that way. Just something fun I could do for a little extra spending money.
