If you want to block caller id for your cell phone number on a temporary basis you need to dial *67 before dialing the number. (Eg *67 (555) 555-5555). Before doing this, try it out on your own caller ID to make sure it works the way you expect it to.

The very first thing you should do is consider the amount of room and vacant locations that the speakers can be placed in your car. This will go a long way in determining the size of speakers you chose and also the number of speakers you intend to install

Tips on Fast or Slow Lenses

Tip Sheet Credibility: 5

submitted by siheyu 2009-08-03 06:16:56 am


You may often hear the terms ‘fast’ or slow’ to describe a lens or aperture. This has nothing to do with the speed of operation, but to the size of the maximum possible apperture (usually quoted as a suffix to the name of a lens).

A good home weather station can do far more than just monitor the weather around your home. Sophisticated alarms can warn you about approaching storms, killing frosts or damaging winds. Much faster and more accurate than official weather forecasts.

Keep your OLED flatscreen TV out of sunlight for maximum picture quality. The screens are best in low to medium room lighting. If you haven't got a good room for viewing where you can control the light, face your OLED flatscreen away from daylight.

Ever Wanted To Have Your Own Brand?

Tip Sheet Credibility: 4

submitted by kenstone 2009-08-12 03:13:33 am


Just about any electrical product can have your own company logo on it, and be boxed in boxes, with your own logo too. Going to a Chinese OEM/ODM is far cheaper than you might think. Why sell someone else's brand, when you can have your own.

Soak head components in Hoppe’s gun cleaning solvent just one time. The scum floats away, and nothing will stick to the parts again. Future cleaning, just tap head on block of soft wood and everything will fall out.
