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! [more inside]

What can I show children to inspire and wow them? I teach children aged between 9 and 11. I'm looking for video clips (or other) to show the children that will blow their minds - or at least, prompt discussion, broaden their horizons and take them outside of the confines of the four walls of the classroom.

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?

Hi. Does anyone know who made the following video clip? Was it a music video -- I don't recognize the artist.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.

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. American with a video clip that I have complete copyright authority to (including the music on it) and several UK companies have approached me about licensing the footage for television programs. Is there an agent for this kind of thing, and how would I know if they're credible? I know only minimal bits about contract negotiation..

Name That Show Used In That Russian Music Video-Filter:
I was at a Russian restaurant in L.A yesterday and saw the strangest music video. I got the name of the artist (Something and Federov?) but the video was chopped up clips from what looked like a British TV show. What TV show or movie was being cut up? Details inside. [more inside]

I need an audio clip of a nuclear attack warning. Double points go to 50s-style announcer versus EAS computer voice. Triple points go to clips that are free and easy to get.
I've got the explosion part, I just need that foreboding warning before it happens. Thanks!

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.

I am looking for a good website for free clip art. I have googled but come up with rather lame clip art. I am putting together a one page memo and wanted some cartoonish things like aliens and comic book like designs. And I am using Word 2004 for the Mac.

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?

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.

Name that tune please :: PBS is great, and the songs in their promos are actually just as good. Currently running is a promo that ends with the words; "Be More ~ ThirteenHD" (this is PBS Thirteen's High-Def channel which they broadcast in NYC & possibly elsewhere?). The music which accompanies it is a piece that I'd classify as sort of a Blues/Rock/Jazz instrumental.
My Question: Name that tune!?!

I just want to remember a video song.
hint : All the video is made of Alphabet letters, it's all Big building alphabet, Motorcycles Alphabet, Car Alphabet... and we can see the traffic in Alphabet and even an helicopter in Alphabet.
I can't remember neither the song's name, neither the artist.
But if you have already seen it you could remember it.

What is the *easiest* way to take a clip from a commercial DVD and turn it into a WMV or AVI file. I own the DVD I am using and need a hastle-free way of showing lots of DVD clips in my class lectures. Also, the quality needs to be reasonable -- but not perfect. And again, I'm looking for the *easiest* way.
