You should be fine with just a pot. then. If you cannot get that motor working right for some reason, you could use the motor from a case fan. That way, you could use an old mobo or fan controller to get very precise control.

As far as the lights, why don't you use a transformer instead of eight C batteries? It'd probably cost less considering the cost of alkaline batteries nowadays.

It's a temporary art project. I don't plan on running it longer than it takes for the teacher to grade it. If it was permanent, I would have. But I also don't know where any power will be when it gets graded. Or am I misunderstanding what you mean about a transformer? I already bought the batteries. It was $9 for a 12-pack. I'll use them when done anyways.

I have question about Polyphony Digital. Is it pronounced POLY-PHONY, or PO-LY-PHON-NY?

Does it have to be java? A HTML Dropdown menu would be just as easy, theres a good tutorial here.

Also, i just noticed my photo of the day thread was closed, just FYI The project is still being done i have just been too busy to update it. Oh well, i should just do a Flickr gallery.

OK, I'm going to try locking this thread temporarily, it appears that it is just being some sort of dumping ground. Most of these topics are perfectly acceptable to have their own dedicated threads in the social lounge because that is what it is there for! If it becomes to spammy then I'll reopen this thread.

Weird glitch here. At the bottom of the page, it says we are on 968, and it shows page 969, but when I click on that, it brings me right back to 968.

EDIT: It's gone now.
