Hi DIY i tried asking ADV, but they were useless, Tech were also useless and i didnt get a single thread reply, so this is my last shot.
I have a sound system connected to my laptop via HDMI cable, I also have a TV connected to my sound system with its own HDMI , for some reason today, I turned my laptop on , my sound system and TV on, and my desktop works on the TV, but i only have laptop sound. I dont know why, my sound system is set to "game" like always, nothing has changed, but my laptop is playing the sound, If I unplug the HDMI cable , and go into sound devices in Ctrl Panel It recognizes "ATI HD output" But as soon as i plug the HDMI in, it disapears and only sees "smart audio" the regular device.

Hi /diy/, I'm putting together a list for a family member who is moving out on her own. She's not super-handy but she also isn't retarded. Largely she's a buyfag but sometimes it's just not practical to pay someone else to fix small or inconvenient things.
Please take a look at my general list of objects for a self-sufficient adult of 25 who must care for an apartment, bicycle, small sedan, etc and see if I'm missing anything enormous.

So, /diy/, here comes another tinyhome thread. I know you guys get a lot of these, but I've got some specific questions and discussion that I believe deserve their own thread. That said, here we go:
Living in a tinyhome has always been a dream for me, and for many other people as well. It's cheap, it's simple, it's sustainable, it's cozy, and it's easy to maintain. The problem is, it's priced right at that point where you don't have enough money lying around to really do it right, but it's not worth enough to interest a bank in giving you a loan. So, my plan is to up the stakes and make it more interesting to a bank so I can make my (and others'!) dream come true.
My initial plan right now, is for a $100,000 loan to build four tinyhomes on one plot in a little nearby town. I'm allotting $20,000 per home, because I really want these to be well-appointed homes, built to code and built to last, not cheap, ugly shanties. $10,000 for the plot (0.25 acre) leaves $10,000 of wiggle room between the four houses. If I can get a 10-year loan at around 3-5% APR, that puts me at around $1000/month. I can manage that, but between that and rent for my apartment, I'll be pretty much tapped out for the first few months until I can get one of the homes livable, so I'll have to be living out of the $10,000 emergency fund (ugh). I've got around $4000 in the bank, and I think I could scrape together another $2-3000 if necessary for the down payment.

So long story short

The uppers are fine, the soles are shit, it doesn't help that they are slightly too big in the foot and ankle but fit fine everywhere above my midcalf.
I'm kinda on the broke side, so I have plans to make these boots last longer- I made a giant pair of extra padded insoles to make them fit better. I am planning on applying a layer of sandpaper to the bottom of the sole to keep them from wearing down further and add more traction.
I have a syringe and I have rubber cement. Could I inject the soles with it and let it dry so the heels are sturdier?
