What's a fast and subtle way to disable barcodes? Say I have multiple barcodes close together [pic related] and i only want one of them to be read be the laser scanner, how to you block the others?
Stores usually block a few lines with a black marker but that wouldn't be very subtle.
Will putting a clear sticky tape over it work, just like when you put a tape in an optical mouse?
I have to ask since I can't experiment myself: no barcode scanner. And yes, I've Googled several methods: black marker, white correction ink, reprogramming the database, printing barcode stickers. All of which are not very subtle and/or practical.

Hi, /diy/. Summer's come around, and I've got time to kill, so I figured I'd try to get into some DIY stuff in my garden.
I have absolutely no idea where to start. I know dandelions are edible, so I don't necessarily want to get rid of them altogether, but at the same time, I'd like a little room for other plants maybe. Any ideas?
Pic related, it's the main body of my garden.

Hi DIY I am starting my own business selling snacks, drinks, and shave ice. The aspects of the business aside, I was wondering if building my own shave ice machine would be cheaper then buying one.
I know this would be harder and my main issues is that I don't know how to weld nor do I have easy access to machining equipment... so really I think I'm asking if you could make a shave ice machine out of stuff from places like Home Depot. Any thoughts, tips, or ideas would be helpful.
How much to charge?

A while ago I made 6ft tall wooden greek letters, 3/4 inch thick for my fraternity.
Well, word got around campus and now a sorority hit me up asking me to make them letters too.
My question is, how much would YOU charge them to make the letters?
They're letters aren't difficult shapes, it's simply AKA. But obviously, including materials (wood and paint) I don't know what would be a fair price to charge them.
Some places charge about 350 for 4 ft letters, so would a price of 500 be reasonable?
I figure I could charge depending on the complexity of the letters, the amount of time they give me, the height of the wood, etc.
Pic related, a phi I made.

I already posted this to /k/ but then I remembered that 4chan has this nifty new DIY board. This is kind of an advanced project, but still might pique your interest:
First part of the video is a overview & demo, the second part is a "making of" & partial how to.
"Fully "open source" & public domain design for a universal Glock autopistol rail attachment that you can theoretically 3D print and DIY for around $30. This "Beta" version includes three actuator slots (currently using 1 generic laser diode and two white LEDs), 3-cell battery pack and a 3 position switch that lets the operator choose between: OFF / Laser Sight / Tactical Light.
This is effectively an open platform designed from the ground up to be as versatile as possible, it only utilizes components that are universal, cheap and easy to procure. The maker has total freedom and flexibility to modify the design in any way they see fit. Add your own specific type of LED or laser depending on your needs. Modify the source file to add additional actuator slots, switches, etc. The basic design has already been completed, now you can customize with confidence!"
