    yo dawg, sounds like you want one of these:

    or one of these:

    For something more complex, this would also work, but all the jacks are 1/4 inch. So you'd need adapters

  2. Jack's post in How come I can't stir sugar into iced tea / iced coffee? was marked as the answer   
    well, this question has NOTHING to do with computers, but I'll take a crack at it:
    When you are adding sugar to tea / coffee / anything, you are attempting to create a SOLUTION. So, what's at issue here is the SOLUBILITY of the sugar. The solubility of sugar increases with higher temperatures.
    I'm not really sure.
    But remember: heat is energy. So, when you look at a substance under a microscope, you see these little molecules. When a substance is cold, these molecules are relatively still. But when they are hot, they start jiggling around like crazy, cuz they are full of energy.
    So, the goal of stirring sugar into coffee is to get your sugar molecules in between the water molecules. Kind of like trying to sift flour. If you just plunk the flour into a sifter, then some of it will go thru, but not all of it. You have to shake the sifter to get the rest thru.
    So, I guess what I'm trying to say is, that when your water is hot, it's like it's being stirred on a microscopic level. Which is why it mixes in better.
    Also, this is why it's almost IMPOSSIBLE to mix sugar into ICE COLD tea. That's why to sweeten iced drinks, you should use a simple syrup (this is what they do at Starbucks).
    To make simple syrup, add one cup of sugar to one cup of water (or any amount, just maintain the 1 to 1 ratio) and bring to a boil. Wait for the sugar to dissolve and then let it cool. Stick it in a bottle, something like a clear ketchup bottle and stick it in the fridge.
    Got any tech questions?
  3. Jack's post in iWeb: Navbar and photo gallery will not load was marked as the answer   
    First off, iWeb sucks. The way it generates webpages is completely awful and that's why you're having trouble. Instead of creating straight-up HTML, it uses a twisted labyrinth of javascript widgets and XML files. So, essentially, the entire page is built dynamically using client-side scripts. If you ever wanted your page to show up nicely in search engines, fuggedaboutit. You're better off making your page entirely in flash.
    So, the navbar and the photo's page both work by pulling data from an XML file. If your page can't get this XML file, then it just fails. I think that's what's happening here.
    The fact that it also doesn't work on your local folder indicates to me that your file permissions are wonked up. So, try this for me first:
    Go to Applications > Utilities > Disk Utility.
    Select your hard drive and click Repair Disk Permissions.
    See if that helps.
    If it does, then that's good. Try re-uploading.
    If it doesn't, try changing the file permissions on your web server. You can do this through an FTP program or your web host's file manager. They are probably all set to 0644 right now. Set it to 0755. Do this for feed.xml and rss.xml (in your photos folder, I believe).
    If that STILL doesn't work, go to the root of your website (www or public_html) and look for a file called .htaccess
    Open it up in a text editor.
    Add these lines:
    <Files feed.xml> Order allow,deny Allow from all Satisfy All</Files><Files rss.xml> Order allow,deny Allow from all Satisfy All</Files> Try again.
    if that doesn't work, send me the url to your site and a $5 papa john's coupon and I'll fix it for you.
