Is there a method or device that will determine the amp rating of a fuse? I know that most fuses are marked with their specific amp rating, but I really need a way to verify. These are standard 5mm and 6.3mm fuses used in consumer level audio equipment. TIA posted by Brocktoon at 9:25 AM - 1 answers
Let's say there is a database that I can only access from a front end tool, and that database cannot provide any extract of any sort. I also have no access to run reports off that database.
And let's say that the only way to preserve that data is to print to pdf or do screen shots.
btw- all legit and you are not helping me do something malicious. [more inside]posted by BrodieShadeTree at 9:16 AM - 4 answers

About a year ago I bought a refurbished iMac. I now totally regret buying a desktop computer and really wish I had a laptop instead. Is there any way for me to trade in my still perfectly-functional iMac for a Mac laptop? (In NYC if it matters) [more inside]posted by showbiz_liz at 7:29 AM - 4 answers

I think we've had a couple of questions specific to language apps in the past. But I got to wondering what particularly good learning apps for grown-up users are out there, regardless of subject.
Specifically, apps that are well designed, easy to use but challenging to the appropriate degree, and fun. Pretty graphics are nice too. posted by bunderful at 6:00 PM - 3 answers

I just got a new ipod(classic) today, all the music synced fine and most of my podcasts too. However, i have 18 that won't sync and it keeps saying it can't find them even though they're all right there on itunes as i just downloaded them. I made sure everything was up to date, and even restarted itunes but still nothing.
If it matters i'm using a mac(2007/08?), with itunes 11.0.3, snow leopard.
Is there anyway i can get them to sync? posted by earthquakeglue at 8:50 PM - 5 answers
I have this
type of watch. The manual suggests that I should get Timex to repair the battery. I'm hoping to be able to do it myself and save a few bucks. However, I don't really see any way to get the back off. I also want to adjust the band as it's too large for my wrist. But, again, I really have no idea how to do this. Hoping someone here can tell me if this is something I'd be able to do from home (and tell me how to do it) or whether I should take it to a jeweler. posted by Proginoskes at 1:43 PM - 9 answers
I think I may be ready to delve into the world of smart phones; I am having trouble understanding what is a good price for the plan, for the phone, etc, even after some price-quoting with various companies (is there a less clumsy way to do this than pretending to buy???). Please share the deal that you are happy with to give me an idea of what is realistic. [more inside]posted by Tandem Affinity at 7:59 AM - 17 answers
I've been a late adopter of mobile computing stuff, but since February I've been giving a tablet (Nexus 10, Android 4.2.2) and a smartphone (a Nexus 4) a chance. I can't stand them. Why isn't the experience "clicking" for me? [more inside]posted by Nomyte at 4:19 PM - 26 answers

I think the time has come for me to jump the iPhone ship. The announcement of the Google version of the Galaxy S4
at I/O was the clincher. But I am not 100% sold on the idea, mainly because the S4 is an ugly brute, but also because I fear for the apps and innovation I will miss. Help me out, specifically in finding a worthy replacement for my beloved Mailbox
app. [more inside]posted by 0bvious at 9:25 AM - 11 answers
I work at home and, since I moved from NYC to the West Coast, I've simply had Verizon remote-call-forward my number to make the move as seamless as possible.
The problem is the cost, around $70.00 per month.
Does anyone know of a less expensive way to remote-call-forward? Thanks in advance! posted by tangyraspberry at 11:28 AM - 12 answers
My friend keeps getting a text from my number, but I actually haven't sent said text. What is going on? [more inside]posted by thereemix at 8:40 AM - 9 answers
I listen to a lot of audio books on my iphone while driving and working. I also like listening to music in between for short periods, but still need to keep my place in the book. Right now I am using the bookmark app to keep track of the audio book, which seems to be the best app that I have tried so far. But the problem is that whenever I want to switch back to my playlist of music, the iphone music app defaults to the audio book that was last played. Is there any better way of switching back and forth so that the music app can remember that it is supposed to play a playlist and the audio book app remembers to start where I left off in the book?
