Alright guys. I have a Kindle Fire, purchased from Amazon before Christmas of 2011. It was my entire Christmas, so it is pretty important to me. It has served me well, but today when getting pushed down the school stairs by a freshman who was not looking where she was going, I fell back and although I was unharmed, my Kindle (In my back pack) had the screen cracked in like 7 different slivers. It still is functional, as I use it mainly for reading, but this just leaves it open for more damage at the slightest provocation. How can I get Amazon to take it and repair it or replace it? I am not ashamed to say I am willing to lie to make this happen. I need help, /diy/nos. Please.

Hello /diy/ I'm not at all a regular here, but I'm hoping you can help me out. I'm looking at getting a Brother Sewing machine, the XL-2600i. I'm wanting a basic machine to make some clothes (mostly for hunting) and in case I need to repair anything. I don't want anything fancy. Local mart has them for like $75. Are these worthwhile, or is there something cheaper out there that'd be just as good. I might want to do heavier materials eventually, but as of now I'm trying to stay to the easy stuff, nothing heavier than jean, stuff like cotton ripstop (i.e. military uniforms)

I need help and I don't know where else to go. I recently got one of those spam emails and i accidentally went by it while going through my mail with the arrow buttons. Anyways I got some malware and spyware and a friend suggested to use spybot. I used it and indeed it found a bunch of crap and i proceeded to remove it.
Now I still have issues although windows security essentials, spybot, macafee, cce cant find anything else:
my internet does not connect when I turn on my computer, I have to go on the drivers and devices and turn 'adaptive inter-fram spacing' from disabled to enabled to disabled again to get my connection working again
Everything is still super slow, youtube is slow, gifs load slow, iamges load slow
I also had trouble with flash player saying i needed to intal missing plugins but that seems to be resolved
what the fuck do i do? should i just back up my files and return it to factory settings? please help.

Posting in here and /sci/ for help, though I figure this belongs more here.
I'm trying to make a mini-maglev type thing (pic related) and so far I have levitation down pat. The only thing now is propulsion, which I have no idea how to accomplish:
>Tried doing coil-gun like design with solenoids, but that would run the cost too high, and it was really patchy when testing first 3 coils
>Tried doing a belt-drive system with magnets on the belt (think tank treads, will post pic) but magnets stick to the track, and/or flip over and attach to the levitation magnet
I want to keep this propulsion as magnet-based as possible. What does /diy/ suggest?
