InDesign’s View Actual Size (100% Zoom) Doesn’t Show Accurate Scale For Web Design

Speaker/Headphone Switch

My computer at work didn’t have a 1/4″ headphone jack, so I built simple box that did. It allows me to switch between headphones (1/4″ or 1/8″) or speakers. I also added a volume control for the headphones.

$5 Dollar Macro!

Macro doesn’t have to be expensive. And you don’t need a special lens for it if you just want to play around and experiment. Use what ever lens you have—a kit zoom lens is fine. Just figure out what lens mount your camera uses, and the filter diameter of the lens you plan to use.

Building a Drone

Once you’ve decided you want to start this hobby, and before you run out to the local hobby store, or order a bunch of parts on a RTF helicopter online, my advice is this. Learn to fly WELL in a safe place. Consider a Ready To Fly (rtf) model. Use common sense, and then some.
