Pictures and text.

Is there an easy to use upload service that can retain a created article? The upgrade article would include the entire process divided into chapters.

Easy disassembly & reassembly

How to choose, buy and install a voltage adjustment potentiometer

If needed, how to replace the weakest components (caps and rectifiers) in the Megawatt. This turns the Megawatt into one tough charger.

These things are not nerd techhie grade mods. If you can handle a cheap 15 watt soldering pencil, you can do this stuff so easy it hurts.

But I need a kindergartener's grade upload site to start the process.

Any ideas?

Thank You

I am going to heavy-duty examine each suggestion. Anyone can access Google Docs with a correct link to URL?


And THANK YOU Mr. Bryant!

I have used Google Drive (just the back end storage for Google Docs) for awhile. It works, but it is not the most "user friendly" way of sharing a document.

You can embed images from your Google Docs/Drive, but again, not user friendly.

Also, FWIW, http://google.com.mx *might* work better for you- not really sure. That pic is one I had on my Google drive- I posted that on my chromebook, which doesn't have any pics stored on it.

Another tweak upgrade. This addresses the whining about the 10-turn potentiometer.

This is a Bournes 3-turn 500 ohm pot available on e-Bay

FYI, google drive uses an enormous amount of ram, even for plain text, and takes a long long time to load. I would suggest you try and see if its use of resources is compatible with your setup before putting a lot of effort into it.

It's like pdf files, in that it is at least theoretically accessible to people on any platform, but is a huge resource hog.


3/4 timing in a DIY van conversion. Backroads, mountains, boondocking, sometimes big cities for a change of pace.
