What the hell is this clippy thing with a hole in it?

We found this weird clip thing, and we have no idea what it's for. As noted on the pics, it's about 3-1/2" x 4-1/2", with a weird sort of "pipe" coming out of the front. Anyone recognize it?

Can anyone ID this steel shelf support clip?

I have a bunch of industrial shelving and I'm running out of clips to put it up with. I believe these are Edsal clips--they look similar to some of the Edsal clips I've seen online, and some of the clips have a letter "E" on them. I know there are similar clips out there where the support part isn't a nice right angle like these, but those will not work for my shelves. I need clips that are basically identical to these. Pics.

How do I use this tie clip?

I received a very short tie clip as a gift, but I'm not quite sure how to use it. It's of a similar size as this one on ebay. Usually I'd use a tie clip to fasten the top and bottom layers of the tie to my shirt placket, but since the clip is so short it doesn't even necessarily reach the bottom layer of some ties. So how should I use it?

My beloved Sansa Clip+ has died. What's a good replacement?

My Sansa Clip+ MP3 player stopped working. First it started freezing up, and now my computer gives USB errors when plug it in. Sadly, when I went looking for a new one, I was disappointed to find that Sansa has apparently discontinued the Clip+, and all I see are other models with worse reviews, and refurbished clip plus's selling for nearly twice what I paid for mine new. So the question, should I suck it up and shell out $40+ for a refurbished one on ebay, or purchase something else? [more inside]

70s children's animated short film w men and women on separate islands

I'm trying to find a film that was shown to me when I was in first grade in 1976. It was a stop-motion animation film that was about a situation where all the men live on one island and all the women live on another island. They attempt to come together, but there is the difficulty of getting from one island to the other to contend with. The look of the film was like Gumby - it may have been claymation, but I'm not sure. Any ideas?

Where to buy large(ish) cable clips in Canada?

I'm much of the way through building a TRS Drawbot robotic arm thingy, and I need to buy cable organizer / management clips more or less like this that are large enough to hold a sharpie (or similar-sized) marker. The Make Magazine project was sponsored by a US retailer that doesn't exist in Canada, and I'm having trouble locating an equivalent or serviceable substitute on short notice here. If you've seen these or something that you think would work in a pinch around - at a national chain, or somwhere in the downtown/East end Toronto areas - I'd really appreciate your help!

Pocket clip for DIY knife sheath

I am making a small felt sleeve for an antique pocket knife, to protect it from car-keys and loose change. Easy enough. I'd like to add a clip to it so it can discretely ride at the top of my front pants pocket or shirt pocket for quick access, like some eyeglasses cases have. Insanely difficult. Are such clips sold anywhere for crafters, or am I stuck cutting, bending and polishing my own from sheet metal? How do I even go about attaching such a thing to a felt sheath?

Wear my ring around my neck?

I'm about to get married and can already anticipate times in which I will not want the ring on my hand (like when I'm whitewater kayaking, for fear of losing it), but I'll still want it with me. I'm thinking maybe I'll get a simple, sturdy necklace and a little clip of some kind. Any suggestions for said necklace and/or clip? Also will the stainless clip damage 18k gold?

I'm a John Q.

Information about a stock audio clip where a dispatcher says "Beta ... something something"

There is a stock audio clip used all over the place in which you can hear a dispatcher say "Beta ... something something", I can never make out anything past "Beta" but it's very common. The last place I heard it was in one of the latest Arby's commercials where a paramedic is getting into an ambulance for some reason or other. And the first place I remember hearing it is in Sim City 2000 when you call in the police it would play this audio clip every time. I am looking for as much information as I can find out about it, and my google-fu has failed me. Specifically I would like to know what the dispatcher says.

How to share a short clip from a DVD with others.

How can I get a short clip from a DVD and save it to use in the classroom? Say I was teaching a lesson and a film had a short clip that was perfect at demonstrating something or at getting a point across and I wanted to save it and let other teachers use it in their lessons what would I have to do? Obviously I would look to getting the right clearance in terms of copyright - but how would I do this? Is there a really quick and easy way? Thanking you.

Help me find a durable retractable ID badge holder.

Help me find a durable retractable ID badge holder. This is similar to what I'm looking for, but the problem is that I only need ONE and not one hundred of them. I've been searching for quite a while now and can't seem to find anywhere that will sell just one. I'm having no problems finding them in bulk, but that isn't what I need. I have an ID badge holder now but it has a nylon cord and I've already broken two of them. I want something more durable than the cheap nylon freebie ones.
