Re: Downtime coming up soon

Like would be a new 'feature' (adding a module for like type behavior). The donation button is something UJ added, which I am not overly fond of. I would rather just modify the source which generates the footer of every page, and add it there. But UJ added a 'paypal mod', and you get what you get.. ...

Re: Downtime coming up soon

The site is updated (and downgraded, them updated, then downgraded, lol). Certainly not without a bit of pain, but we should have the version we will be running for quite a while. That being the case, there are a few things which may not be functioning correctly. IF you spot things which were workin...

As for tapatalk, i will probably have to address that, since this site was already tapatalk and linked to my tapatalk account. We will get things functioning. But anything you notice that 'worked' this way last week, but 'is missing' this week, post it here. I know there are some menu items missing....

Re: Building a 3 string Cigar Box Guitar

Lets see you battery power that tube, lol. I saw a ton of tube like this last fall at junk stock. They are around, and yes, an old tube amp is really what 'should' go with this CBG.

Good stuff.

Re: Building a 3 string Cigar Box Guitar

Looks like your basic 555 amp circuit (is that what it is). That chip (if it is the 555 you used), is SOOOO versatile. If not, then please post a link to whatever schematic you used. 555 can also be used for almost any sound effect modification box. But IIRC, the really 'simple' circuits do get pret...

1. Fill your boiler, and do a stripping run (when you have your wash done). When you do this, don't try to reflux anything, just leave the take-off valve wide open, and collect from the beginning, until the EtOH is been fully boiled off. Does this mean that for a stripping run that the foreshots go...

When Pyewacket originally presented this idea, he also mentioned he would cover all packing and shipping costs. I have added that to the rule. So now that you know this, bid without having to concern yourself with covering that cost. I figured there might be a adjustment or 2 to the rules. Well that...
