comment Is it possible to buy a bulk of 1000s of basic bricks (mostly 2x4)?
@Grandpappy: They're very difficult to find, I managed to grab the only bulk bag by getting there as soon as the store opened. They only do this after dismantling models used for display.

It might not be entirely accurate, but it seems the majority of parts found in this search query are discontinued.

comment Bluetooth will not connect Error code: -142016
For such a small problem you shouldn't just buy another NXT, especially if it's the PC or Bluetooth dongle that is causing an error.

The hard part was finding the right template. Avery seem to have thousands of templates. I would have preferred to have printed from Photoshop but I ended up using Avery's online service to design my sticker. I was forced to use up all four stickers.

The closest thing I could buy was an A4 Avery sticker sheet with four compartments per sheet. How can I cut out complex shaped stickers?

comment How can I convert an image's pixels to actual LEGO colors?
This can also be done in Photoshop by cropping an image of a mosaic to the selected area, then applying the Blur -> Average filter effect. From there you can change the image mode to an indexed colour using a Lego colour pallete.

comment How can I blow a stream of air for up to two minutes at a time?
I like this solution the most as a I can blow air evenly up to 7cm wides. My only problem is the technical aspect of building such a device, like making the housing reasonably airtight and circular.

I'm not quite sure what you had in mind by 'toggle switches'

Using linear actuators would require a processor of some sorts to follow a program like a NXT brick. I'm looking for a more mechanical solution.
