Did see on the net somewhere where someone used the diode and fired it up in the grill of their car ... set all kinds of radar detectors off - and supposedly jammed police radar.

Somewhere else on the net someone used two old microwaves to set up a
microwave transmitter system - they don't have the docs online for
safety reasons (or so they say ;-)  ).

My understanding is that active jamming is illegal in most
states, but scattering is not (crushed aluminium foil in
bumper, etc).  But I also wonder how safe this is to other
folks on the street?

Cheers,

Hmmm... this has obviously gone down a path that I was
not originally intending.  I've got enough little "projects"
going on that I did not want to start another -- just
salvage some parts, or use it to do something useful for
me like display my first PIC project on the turntable :-)

But now, some of these ideas have piqued my interest...

Okay, exploding food is cool, but I'm holding out for a
better piece of entertainment.  :-)

Cheers,
-Neil.

You can make a foundry to melt metal:

or paper casting:

or:

if they are not contaminated, donate it away so others can do some cooking
with it.

Cheers, Ling SM

Because I did that while trying to cook one and it was not fun washing the
wall near the uwave afterwards. Of course I poked a hole in the egg first,
as always.  Of course the hole wasn't large enough *that* time. The egg
was in a cup of salted tap water as usual. Surprising how sticky these
organic substances are though. When it went off the windows rang (I was
not in the room).
