Minor nit to pick with your Beaded Dragons instructable: You keep using the word 'taught' when you mean 'taut'.

taut, adjective
Inflected Form(s): -er/-est
1 a : tightly drawn : tensely stretched : not slack
Wouldn't it have been more polite to send that as a private message? I'm curious, what's the definition of pretentious?
   How do I send a private message? I posted this to the author's profile rather than the Instructable itself since I wasn't addressing the subject matter.
   I provided the (short) definition to prove my claim (that taut was a better word) and to enable the author to make an informed decision immediately. Not all posters have English as a first language, and usages vary among even those who do.

 pre·ten·tious /priˈtenCHəs/
   Adjective: Attempting to impress by affecting greater importance, talent, culture, etc., than is actually possessed. {One example would be using a word such as pretentious.}

   Why do you address this matter three years later?
