How much do Uber drivers make?

20 April 2018 - 09:29 PM

My girlfriend recently introduced me to uber... I'm now a convert.


It got me wondering... how much does an uber driver take from a fare?


Does anyone quit their day job and become a full time uber driver?

best thing to do with a 12v remote switch?

22 November 2017 - 08:33 AM

I bought one of these off ebay for $12.



I had a great deal of fun last night, turning a 120mm pc fan on & off from about 20 metres away. Apparently they are good for about 80m. A friend of mine has a 4 channel switch on his car to run various lights and gadgets. I was going to do something similar but it really got me thinking, you could probably do some really cool stuff with one of these.



I also grabbed a 12v temp controlled relay for an intercooler fan on my vehicle (for low speed high rpm), the system seems to work well


Bitcoin trading.....

I know nothing.


But it doesn't seem that hard? I've been dabbling in this for the past week or so watching the trends of the market, place orders for when it's low, set stop losses as it rises above the opening price and take profits when it's high. I lost a bit at first because I panicked when I saw my open positions lose value and sold them at the wrong time, but I've since learned to have enough equity in my trading accounts to follow the market as it falls, I've been keeping my margin about 10-15%. Understandably there's always the risk of the market falling way beyond what my equity would allow for but so far so good and I've made more than half back in net profits on top of the equity I started with 9 days ago.


I see how people make careers out of this.


What are the atomicans thoughts?

Such game demos as Hellbender, Mechwarrior 2 & Doom95.


I want to hear that midi tune again, i used to have it but lost the CD.


Do you know that midi tune or where I can get it?

Mobile Microwave

Can someone explain to me why this doesn't work.


I have a 2000/4000w inverter which runs from the alternator in my vehicle.


When using the inverter, I increase the idle speed so that the alternator puts out 14.4v, I can run all sorts of power tools, 850w angle grinder, 1800w electric chainsaw, 2000w heat gun to name a few.


My 800w microwave however refuses to run. It starts off looking healthy but then it appears to lose interest and slows down and makes a funny noise.


Do I need a ballast?
