Just to so everyone is clear. Written instructions are not required for Videos or Slideshows.
Yes, but they're very helpful to have.
Suggestion: If you see a Video or Slideshow Image (the picture depicts what it is) where the Instructable picture is, just assume that there won't be any written instructions. Then just skip over them or view the video/slideshow as is.
Many many times, I read out of the corner of my eye without thinking. So when I do try skipping things, I end up catching a couple words, and then sometimes I'm interested. So that doesn't really work.
When you open Instructables, just select the tab at the top that says "Instructables" (then just have Instructables bookmarked at that url). Afterwards, you won't have to worry about seeing these new additions.
The page that button goes to doesn't show all new instructables, just popular ones. I like to look at new ones as they come, and search when I need to.
This is the link you want. You just needed to use the sort option.

http://www.instructables.com/tag/type:id/instructable:true/?sort=RECENT
Go to that page, then go to the "sort by" (located under the categories, but above the Instructables) and click recent. "Popular" is the default setting so when you click on any of the tabs, it'll sort by the most popular. Try it out for yourself: Click on the Instructables tab and then click back onto the All tab.

I still like the original clear photos+written instructions instructables. These instructables without that turns me off. I keep thinking they are just for us to click to get them money (like metacafe stuffs)

Care to point out how I'm making money on this?
You've obviously teamed up with instructables in order to leach money out of poor helpless souls by posting slideshows without any written discription! Everyone! Run before its too late!

How about adding some "claws" to keep the coaster in place- depending on your couch it might be velcro, rubber flaps, or tetanus-inducing spikes. A rubber footing on top would also make the beer a bit more likely to stay put when someone gesticulates wildly.

I had wanted to try checkering the top, but the price of checkering tools was prohibitive. That and laziness. I like the claw idea, hmmmm.
agreed: rubber feet or something to make the bottom grip the cloth of the sofa, as well as cork or some other material on top for under the bottle/glass.

Nice, although my kids would knock it off before I could put my beer down.
LOL, i can imagine me doing that (I'm 12 {but clumsy})
ahhh, very nice!
