• OS X: How can I put the Movies folder on a Firewire drive?

    I'd like to save space on my MacBook by storing my Movies folder on an external drive. I moved the folder and created a symlink from the command line, but the folder seems to have lost its "special" status. Suggestions?

  • Where can I find small, cheap hydraulic/pneumatic actuated valves?

    Not for industrial use, just home hobby use. I'm hoping to use them with common rubber/plastic tubing from the hardware store. The lower the pressure needed to close or open the valve, the better. Thanks!
