Re: External Hard Drive Data Recovery

Another thing you can try is place the drive in the fridge/freezer and try it when it's cold in case the fault is temperature sensitive.

Re: External Hard Drive Data Recovery

From what you're saying it seems your drive did not 'crash', which happens when a read/write head dives into the surface of a platter, mainly caused by excessive shock. To me it sounds like the control circuitry failed and the drive itself is still ok. What I would try is try to locate the same mode...

Re: Help needed with thermostat wiring

Re: Photos

What is the size of the image file/s you were trying to upload? I just tried to upload an image now and it worked fine. It could be either your images were too large or the server had a problem at the time you were uploading.

Re: Had to share

Ja, didn't read that, photos like that are usually accompanied with an attempt to impress or strike fear. Unfortunately there will always be people that believe and not question, and proceed to spread this cr@p around the internet.

Re: Had to share

It's true but the way the photo was taken gives you the illusion that it's much bigger than it is in reality. Compare it's size to the scoop bucket and not the excavator with the driver in the background. Decent size adult retic but nothing abnormal.

Re: Electroplating your deceased reptiles.

Very nice! You must've left the rock in for a good while looking at the copper crystal structures that were growing. This is the thing, the longer you leave the item in the more you loose original texture. What you can try is after coating the item with conductive paint, you wrap a couple turns of e...

Re: Electroplating your deceased reptiles.

I'm a dabbler, I dabble in almost everything to try satisfy a burning desire to know how and why. Also bought a load of plating equipment recently which also helped me to contribute to your endeavour.

Re: Electroplating your deceased reptiles.

Nickel and especially Chrome solutions are hazardous and highly carcinogenic, you're working with hexavalent chromium here so just be extremely careful adhering to ppm exposure limits. Even breathing in vapours from warm solutions can be incredibly harmful! You also need to plate at high temperature...

Re: Tete , Northern Mozambique

I've always wondered about that region, from landscape to critters. You've now filled a few gaps in my mind with your account and really enjoyed it. Thanks Sico.

Re: Electroplating your deceased reptiles.

For larger snakes you would need to gut them before the process as you would hear the decomposed matter sloshing around inside. *shiver* Yuk! You can neutralise the toxicity of waste cyanide solutions with a molar excess of caustic soda (NaOH) and hypochlorite bleach (NaOCl or CaOCl) to form non-to...
