    Online ILD to PNG (and SVG to ILD) Converter

    I have been frustrated with many of the options and costs to simply look at ILD files. Many free options will only read files using the older (pre 2007) ILD standard. I decided to write an online ILD viewer that reads ILD files under all of the current standards. It outputs each frame as a PNG...

    RSS Feed

    I have noticed on a lot of other forums (including vBulletins), they have the options for an RSS feed (either of the whole forum, or individual section). Being that I spend a lot of time each day on forums, I am trying to consolidate to a single feed. Is there any way we could enable that? I...

    Electrolytic Capacitor Question

    Bizarre Home Electrical Problem (Pic Heavy)

    For a few months now, I have been getting shocked when I touch anything powered by a DC power supply that is not case neutral. The problem is so odd, I figured if I posted about it, no one would believe me, but my voltmeter shows it too. The problem occurs when you touch the output of a DC...

    Basic Scanner Questions

    I am looking at building a scanner, and I am quite confused about a few things First, I see a lot of people use sound card DACs. AFAIK, A DAC is basically a USB - ILDA converter. If I pick any lasershow software will it work with any DAC? Second, on feeBay, I see a lot of DACs (ex: "DAC...

    So I bought a bunch of these Sanyo Denki Router Fan/Heatsink Part# 109X9212PT0H016-The Electronic Goldmine with the hope to make laser heatsinks out of them. Unfortunately, the copper does not go all the way through the heatsink, only about 1/2 inch (dont rely on that number) at the thinnest...
