I know there are those with more electrical knowledge so I am looking for ideas. In general I came up with a couple of...

    Hi all! First, I will preface this with - not sure how to categorize this!, as its not really a prop Q, and not really a music-specific question either. Rather a general speakers set up.. In the past, I've run with a Jambox (company now obsolete, I think - but essentially a mobile BLUETOOTH...

    I am curious if there is a guide for the perfect time to hit the 50%+ discounts for many of the stores. I always hit Spirit November 1st. But what about places like Michael's which is sold out by Nov 1st, or Kirkland, or the big box stores? When are those perfect times without having to drive to...

    Anyone have experience creating fake explosions? I'd like to simulate a small explosion that would result from cannon fire. It would need run several times during the evening. I've seen examples using flour/baby powder and an air cannon....which would be perfect except it would need refilling...

    I know we've talked about this several times across various threads, but I don't see a particular dedicated thread. So, what are your tricks to getting that great shot of your work?

    I'm looking to get started in Arduino and need some basic directions to get started...and a project. I'm a former engineer, so soldering/assembly isn't an issue. Can someone help out? This has probably been asked a million times, sorry. I'd appreciate any direction. Thanx! Scott
