I have a couple of questions on AE and Maya, mainly about keyframing an element of a clip out of a background, adjusting the time, etc.

Got a leaky faucet? That Ikea shelf just not staying in place? Plumbing acting up?
Then this is the place to seek advice or the place to laugh at those who bought furniture from Ikea.

I need to get the rust off my cellar/bulkhead door and repaint it, but I'm not sure if I should sand the whole thing to the metal first or if I should just get the rusted parts sanded, or.. what.
I just don't want to get it wrong.

Huh, no, I haven't. I don't know why we haven't done that yet.

My new room is quite small, so I want to get a loft bed. However, it needs to fit the following criteria:
-Base of the "top bunk" is roughly 5' up
-Almost nothing underneath (shelves or small storage areas are acceptable)
-Holds Twin XL, Double, or Queen/Full.

Looking around it seems that either I pay ~$600 or take a bed and hack it together myself. I've done some super basic wood working in my day, but not for some time, and I'm not sure what I need to do once I've found a wooden bed I'm going to hack. Ideally I do as little as possible to the bed in the interest of using it as a normal bed should I get a larger room or just selling it off.

I've found http://www.ikeahackers.net, which has a lot of cool ideas, but for the most part Ikea stuff is still pretty far out of my price range. I'd rather just buy a bedframe from a thrift store and lumber from Home Depot, but I have no idea how to choose lumber. Any good sites about babby's first furniture construction?

Half-assed frittata-like thing:
1. Brown some crumbled sausage, or grill some finely chopped chicken, in a pan. Preferably a smaller pan.
2. Add a fistful or so of spinach, frozen or fresh, doesn't matter.
3. Mix that shit all up and bunch it fairly close together in the center of the pan.
4. Turn the pan to medium-low heat.
5. Crack three or four eggs in a bowl. Beat the shit out of those fuckers like you were making scrambled eggs.
6. Pour the eggs straight onto the meat and spinach.
7. Let it sit there for 6 or 7 minutes. Basically until you can get a spatula under it without it freaking out.
8. Attempt to flip the whole thing over with a spatula. If you succeed, congratulations! Let it cook a few minutes longer, then top it with mild salsa and eat it.
9. If you failed, whatever! You've likely got several chunks of cooked egg with meat and spinach- by this point I usually just scrambleify it, add a bit of salsa, and put it in a bowl.

I've managed to make it correctly exactly once. Every other time I end up with a plate of delicious disappointment.

>swirl it around the pan
>as it cooks, push holes in the middle of it with the spatula, allowing the uncooked mixture to fill the holes
>shoogle it about so it doesn't stick to the bottom but don't flip
>once it's about half-cooked or the bottom is as brown as you want it, stick that shit under a grill on medium heat
>if you want cheese on your omelette add it somewhere around here to save yourself from the horror of burn cheese and the confusion of "is that raw egg or melted cheese"

I am in need on an iwizard to teach me how to make it not trrrible

I was kind of skirting this in the other thread because while it isn't technically illegal it is the sort of thing that the cellphone companies just don't kin to. I do this sort of thing for fun to basically as many electronic devices as I can.

None of us here are going to be able to tell you how to do it. You'll want to google your phone model and "rooting" or "jailbreaking" and then spend like an afternoon reading documents until you come across at least 1 if not 2 complete sets of instructions. Read them all the way through before trying anything like this.

You are the one who should be doing this because you are the one who's going to get use out of it. These actions violate the warranty and may screw you out of your phone if you fuck up bad and brick it. If you don't, they might see that you've tweaked it, and will still void your warranty. Thankfully most phones can be restored to factory settings and there really isn't anything the people at the store can do or say about it.

What does rooting allow you to do? Install Free Programs, User Interface Tweaks, more powerful program management tools, as well as more efficient power meters and managers. What's possible is really based on what's available for your particular model and your particular phone OS flavor (unless you're developing the programs yourself). For some people this makes all the difference in the world; I like doing because I like seeing just how much versatility I can get out of these devices. For most though, if you have to ask how, it's generally recommended that you don't. RTFM (Read The Fucking Manual) and then, JFGI (Just Fucking Google It).

"I bought a smartphone and I don't know what to do with it" general.
>> No. 10181
I didn't buy a smartphone, but the thing to do with anything is turn it into a robot.
>> No. 10202
you use it as a phone. And as a computer. Download programs you think mitebcool and use them.

Why, whatever else would you do with them?

Is there a way to turn back the capacitive buttons on this tablet after upgrading to Android 3.2? Having the buttons on the screen itself is annoying the hell out of me.
