  1. Basically as much air as possible im going to be using it as a cabinet for some laptops which will be running and need to be kept away and it will be in the range of spilt drinks etc. !! But also needs to be quiet i know this is asking for a lot but lots of fans would be too loud and take up power etc..


    So needs to let as much air as possible through and minimal amounts of substances such as water etc..



  2. Hi,


    Does anyone know if it is possible and if so how to go about making a metal or plastic (durable material) semi permeable? I may be using the incorrect terminology but basically i need to know if it is possible to change a material to enable it to allow air to pass through however not liquids.


    One way I thought you could do this was by inserting lots and lots of minute holes in the metal, holes big enough to allow air particles to pass through but not liquids.


    Another way would be to use a material that has these properties anyway?


    Does anyone know of such a material?


    Any help would be appreciated :)



  3. Hey


    I have been looking about at silicone oils to use with boric acid to make silly putty. I have found a place that can supply silicone oil but i could do with some advice on the viscosity of the silicone oil that I should use for making silly putty. Low Medium High etc..


    Would mixing boric acid with white glue work as well ? I want to buy some of this stuff and find out but i want to make sure im using the rite thing :D


    Cheers !

  4. Hello,


    Yes there is a router in between the Connection and the PC . Both the laptop and the computer are using the LAN connection (10/100) to connect to the Modem/Router. I do not see what you mean if you could explain?


    But yeh the IP in config could work i didnt think of that !



  5. hello


    could do with just a little bit more of advice :)


    Just wondering what viscocity do you think would be best for the silicone oil to make the putty ?


    Also do you think the Elmers glue and boric acid would be a good recipe :)?


    Thank you im just about to order the things now

  6. Hello,


    My hard drive recently went on my computer so i got a new one and then i went to install my Blueyonder cable internet connection.


    When i run it through the instalation disk it says cannot connect to the defualt gateway and basically it says wait 90 seconds and try again . I have even phoned up blueyonder and they just gave me a powering up sequence wich didnt work !


    The thing is it works on my laptop no problem . The guy on the phone said if i get a IP starting in 82 it will be valid and that is what im getting ! But just will not work.


    Does anyone have any ideas of what could be going wrong !?


    Thanks a lot !

  7. that looks like a half decent recipe. As long as it does the roughly same thing. Elmers scool glue ? Thats just PVA glue aint it ! :S I will also try your recipe using the silicone Oil.

  8. where would i get those 2 things from for the silly putty ! ? lol .. I could take a look on the internet see whats about .




    My garden might have a lot of water :D

  9. hey


    i received my water retaining crystals today . I tried em and i found it quite interesting. But i do not think that they would be thick enough in consistancy. I think when they come under pressure they release the water and just turn into water. Really i need it to be more like the silly putty stuff you can get. But thats just too expensive. Please let me know if i am not using these crystals correctly or something ?



  10. well i have made a order for some water retaining gel crystals. Im going to see what they are like when they are full size crystals , otherwise like you said i can grind them down to try and get a consistant gel which i can make thicker or thinner.

  11. jsut one last thing that i want to get clear. Does Corn flour when mixed with water ever go off ? Becuase that is the perfect thing and probably the cheapest and easiest thing to use ?


    Thanks last question honest :P

  12. yeh im going to give all these ideas a go . I just thought of a possible problem with the hydrogel crystals. They slowly release water don't they ? This means eventually its going to turn just into water. I like the idea of the silver sand and motor oil. That would be a bit like corn flour and water wouldnt it ? Appart from wouldnt corn flour go off.


    Thanks a lot i got some testing to do :D
