Re: Logo ideas

non-sense! the way I look at it my art skills are so weak anyway, that the best thing I can do is throw my ideas up there and let someone who's better at art duplicate/modify it, give a courteous nod my way for inspiration and win the contest :P

Re: Logo ideas

<t>Okay so I really wanted to do a version of my original idea except with the pi symbol fully made out of the druplets (ukscone did a similar version to illustrate an modification to my original idea). I literally did this on the back of a napkin during lunch at work, took a pic of it with my camer...

Re: Power supply

ah, you beat me to the post! That should work, just make sure you have a means of "float" charging the batteries, even solar with a continuous charge will run the risk of overcharging the batteries to... unfortunate ends.

Re: Power supply

<r>Just as a side note, be very careful if you're not using a charger designed to charge this battery. Improper charging of a battery can make it... explode. On the other hand if you've done this kind of thing and could display a good circuit board that would be to charge the batteries while there's...

Re: Power supply

<t>Yes, you could theoretically get that out of the batteries, however make sure to hook your batteries up in parallel! (Hook the + terminal to the + terminal together and the - terminal to the - terminal). When batteries are hooked up in parallel the provide the same voltage but a cumulative mAh. T...

Re: Logo ideas

<r>Actually from what I've seen in the computer industry is that there are usually two logos one that features a wide arrange of colors and shading (even some gloss to make it shiney) and one that's a basic two-three tone image. That's not to say it's black and white. I rarely see black and white lo...

Re: No programming skills

<r>From a system's administrator standpoint, if you want to learn how to just make the computer do stuff (especially remotely) learning some scripting is a pretty good idea. Windows uses WSH. It's not quite full on programming, but it gets your foot in the door while at the same time giving you imme...

Once we've got stickies and PMs, I'm thinking we'll have everything we need.

I certainly can't think of anything else I use in a forum. Which hey, no more worries about migrating! No sense re-inventing the wheel if this works right?
