Instapot deep-dish pizza or maybe calzone

Here is the draft experimental protocol for InstaPot pizza.

As toxik0n stated on reddit: Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether they could, they didn't stop to think if they should.

Pizza dough (Trader joes in this case) 
Provolone cheese 6oz
canned pizza sauce
Topings (in this case olives, pepperoni and 
Olive oil

Glass Pyrex dish that fits in instapot
aluminum foil

apply thin layer of olive oil to dish
roll out dough and place in dish
add provolone to base saving two pieces for over sauce
add toppings

Add a thin layer of sauce on top of the toppings along with oregano, salt, pepper
another layer of cheese
fold over remaining dough

put 2 cups water in instapot and the bottom rack
cover "pizza" in foil
cook for 15 min on manual setting
vent immediatly

It will come out as weird steamed dough
Briefly cook in a pan with olive oil on medium heat

The finished product

Future recipe for a deep fried mini version:

How to replace battery on tile

I am pretty annoyed that the battery on my Tile died but that I could not replace it per the manufacture. This is how I replaced the battery on my tile device. After this process the device still connects to the phone but does not ring. I am not just using it for my car so that I know where I parked.

The battery is a CR2025 

If anyone has suggestions for alternative to this product that is easy to replace and maintain I would be interested to hear about it.

Opening tile to replace battery
I was able to open the casing with thumbnails on either side
replace battery on tile
The tile opens into three pieces and contains a CR2025 battery
The battery is glued down so I needed to work it out with a box cutter. 
The battery sicks to the blade

I closed it with super glue.

Replace with CR2025

Giant Clipboard

I have been wanting a giant clipboard to use for working on paper for some time. Well here it is. This one is built out a 24x48x0.22 sheet of acrylic with clipboard hardware from amazon. I took photos of the process but it is pretty obvious.
