Which windshield chip repair?

My windshield got chipped today by a rock kicked up by a truck. It's a combination star and chip, less than 2" in total diameter at this point. Due to the location, it seems unlikely that a reputable shop will attempt to repair it and I'd rather not spend $300 on a new windshield just at the moment. Advice is welcome. [more inside]

Headphone amp for Sennheiser 555s and mp3s--worthwhile?

I've been thinking about building this little Altoid tin headphone amp kit for listening with my Sennheiser 555s. Granted, the point of building the kit is, well, building the kit--but given the limitations of a (cheap) kit-built design and the fact that I listen exclusively to mp3s on my iPhone or Mac, will there be a perceptible improvement in sound from the cans? Is there more to the sound of my mp3s that I might not be hearing just driving the Sennheisers with the juice from the iPhone's or Mac's headphone jack that would merit stepping up the signal with the little amp?

Where can I buy retail medical equipment by the piece?

I'm going for a boat trip and might end up in some pretty remote areas. I'm putting a medical kit together. There's some more hospital style stuff I'd like to get (IV catheters/dressings/saline bags), but I only need a few of each. Is there anywhere I can buy these items by the piece? (I'm an RN, for the record) [more inside]

Looking for cool electronics building kits

I've been building guitar pedal kits from buildyourownclone, and it's been great fun. I'm running out of pedals I want to make for myself, and am looking for other projects, like this stereo tube amp, and maybe this sous vide. Can you recommend more electronics projects (preferably kits, so I don't have to scrounge for parts) that are cool and look good at the end? [more inside]

MD no like handhelds

Having an HTS Droid Eris and a 2006 car which knows nothing of bluetooth, have any of you wonderful people found a bluetooth retrofit kit that might do good voice contact recognition or (at minimum) good voice dialling; has a decent speakerphone option; and basically keeps me from having to finger through a lot of comtacts? I'm a former BlackBerry user (alas, let go, no more BB) and would appreciate your experiences. Thanks mind!

Where can I find a good starter kit for motorcycle maintenance/repair tools?

I just purchased a Suzuki SV650 and I want to know where I can find a starter tool kit for maintaining the motorcycle. I bought a Haynes Service Manual/Handbook and want to regularly maintain the bike myself. Changing oil, check spark plugs, air filter, tire pressure, drive chain wear, etc... I would rather not buy all the tools separately one by one as that would not only be more time consuming but I don't know where to start. [more inside]

How do I jump into hobbyist electronics?

Soon, I'm going to have a nice cash bonus at work and about two weeks of vacation time. I don't have enough money for a travel-vacation, so I figured I'd turn it into a learning-vacation: I'm going to focus on playing guitar, but also, I'd like to learn some 101-DIY electronics projects. I adored Lego Mindstorms as a kid, then kind of gave it up for awhile. Now I'm looking for something similar. More inside! [more inside]

Help an editor get organized with plugs and accessories

I am a Final Cut editor working on a first-class Mac Pro. But since I work at a shop with three other editors, I always seem to be hunting for various cords and cables (headphone splitters, rca to quarter-inch connectors, DV deck firewire cables, etc). I'd like to create something like a first-aid bag for myself, complete with all the accessories I seem to lose time searching for - like a CF card reader. My question is what would you put in the bag and what kind of small, manageable bag would you use. Links welcomed. Thanks.

May I transfer an XP Genuine Advantage Kit install?

A Dell PC was originally equipped with Windows ME. Somebody later installed, instead, an unauthorized copy of XP. The machine was given to me, and I legitimated the XP install by paying Microsoft for a "Genuine Advantage Kit." Will Microsoft let me use that kit's CD to install XP on a different machine (perhaps an Apple) if I get rid of the first machine? Thanks.

Nike+Ipod Sport Kit in Ontario, Canada?

I am having a difficult time locating the Nike+Ipod Sport Kit in Canada. Apple.ca doesn't have it listed in their store and Nike.ca is just a horrible [but cool looking] website. My google-fu is failing me miserably and I was hoping that someone has seen these around. I called a local [Kitchener] Apple reseller and they say it should be available in 2-3 weeks. My greedy little hands cannot wait that long. :) Can anyone help?
