Did you get a copy of the book? Show us and get a patch!

We have a new feature here at Instructables: the virtual patch! We'll be giving these away for contests in the future. They'll appear on your "You" page like in the picture below.

The first one we're giving away is a book patch for everyone who's bought or won a copy of The Best of Instructables, Volume 1. All you have to do is show a picture of yourself holding the book and you'll get one! Putting your face in the picture is optional for all of you concerned about your privacy.

woah predator mask project?
Honus gmjhowe7 years ago
The mask is only a small part-

I've already made a lot of changes to the mechanism and electronics shown here. I'm trying to get it all finished before Halloween.

Congratulations on winning !
Oh, i have a mac too... a 3g...2001
Good one- LOL! No I'm just a slacker... I'm actually working on so many things right now (six projects in various stages of completion) that other things keep getting bumped to the top of my list and I just simply forgot about it. I even wrote myself reminder notes- and I just happened to pull several of them out of my pants pocket last night so I figured I'd better do it before the process repeated itself. :P

When do I get my patch!?
fungus amungus (author)  Mplinnc6 years ago
When you put up a real picture. :)
zieak Mplinnc6 years ago
That's a really bad attempt.
 What are you talking about?  He is clearly a purchaser of the book! 

fungus amungus (author)  Mplinnc6 years ago
A real picture of you really holding the book.
barnes and noble ftw
fungus amungus (author)  baystreetbully7 years ago
We already know the book looks great, but where are you?
there was nobody to take the picture with me in it
Find a mirror,  face the mirror and point the camera at yourself, while holding the book in the other hand....using the mirror, you should be able to view the LCD screen of the camera and then stap a good one the first (or second) time :-)

Got my book guys. Thanks!
Hey, how'd you get a signed one?!
. I thought they were all signed.
No. :'(
. hmmmm Mine is.
Yeah, well, I can go without sleep for 20 consecutive hours!

Braggart. :P
I can go with sleep for 20 consecutive hours! No but seriously I did 36 hours without sleep, it burns so bad...
I have went two days without sleep. 24 hours gaming and 24 making stuff out of knex.

I slept for the next day and a half after that, i was totally zoned out by the end of it.
. I have gone as much as 20 minutes without taking a nap!

. Yeah :P Really nothing to brag about. It was just one of those in-the-right-place-at-the-right-time bits of good luck.
Mine wasn't, and I'm in it

=SMART= Kiteman6 years ago
. That's because you keep breaking the servers.
I had to pay extra for it. ;-) Just kidding, I won the last burning questions contest. It was one of the prizes.
Ahh, I see. Congrats!
When do I get my patch?
fungus amungus (author)  target0227 years ago

Wow, you're a big black oval? Sorry, but that photo's weak. Next time, no tweaking the image.
So you want people to violate their privacy in the name of a patch....

wow, im not joking when i say this (no sarcasm either) but you my friend, are cool. *salutes*
Isn't it amazing how people never look like how you imagine them?
I am pulling the most stupid face..
That's what he just said. >:-D
Hey! Wait a honey picking minute! This is not a reply to one of my stalker comments... If your stalking me, and im stalking you, are we walking around in circles?
Kiteman gmjhowe6 years ago
>waves at strange circling people<
gmjhowe Kiteman6 years ago
>holsters one of the shotfuns, waves back<
Is that like fun that shoots shot? I wanna try it!
>Shoots Kryptonite in the head with shotfun<
*Twitch twitch* Weeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well that was cool.
No, see, I'm stalking Kiteman and Kelsey, and you and Koolaid are stalking me, and Bobby is stalking you and me and Kiteman AND Kelsey all at the same time.
So, shall we all agree to get bobby? (who is bobby..)
Sounds good to me (Bobby's the fish, goosy!).
I think we are yet to be introduced..
You've known him forever, stop pretending already, you look silly...
HEY! I want a salute!!!!!!!
Wow! You got your prize very quickly!
yeah, priority mail! and packed with old newspapers, :P
With newspapers?!?!
yeah, it was nice... lol.
Haha! Do you find the kill-the-watt thingy very useful?
HUH, WHAT? I haven't even opened it yet

oh well, i'll find something to do with it. Hack it maybe?
I want it! I need it!

Maybe we could trade, I will give a bunch of my tested shockers for that kill-the-watt thing.

And... Oh, wait, i live in UK and you are in USA, so shipping would be at crazy high price, so that means no deal.. :-( Oh well, I guess you can go ahead and hack it or sell it on ebay to make some cash...
WAIT, NO NO NO, I WANT TO TRADE! I WANT TO TRADE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you never know, our stuff is light...
Okay, well I talked to my dad about it, and he said "No"... I am so sad... :-(

Why do parents have to be so evil sometimes?
You make highly zappy items and you have to ask your dad to ship to USA?

maybe i'll sell it on ebay... or save it for when i meet an ibler...
yeah, good idea...
If you have the resources, and he sells it on eBay, you could always buy it :-)
well, i was saluting how cool nacho looked, you look kinda grey and blocky, youve got this lcd display smack in your forhead, and your mouth looks like a plug socket...
oh no! you know my identity! or do you?

how about the 3 finger salute: ctl / alt /' del LOL
yes yes, best to get rid of any clue to my super secret identity...
gmjhowe gmjhowe7 years ago
Did you ever report this as a bug? If so, could you give me (PM or Orangeboard would be fine) the URL, as I didn't find anything with Search. I can reproduce the bug myself, and have a simple workaround, but I'd prefer to discuss it in an appropriate place (like the Bugs Forum :-).
i kno the workaround, i working it out also..
Great! I created a bug report, and Rachel has acknolwedged it. Hopefully there will be a fix deployed :-)
gmjhowe gmjhowe7 years ago
wow, i find my face more funny when there is 2 of them right next to each other! (soon to be three i guess)
gmjhowe gmjhowe7 years ago
