What I've been up to lately.

1-3 H&K MP5A5. Got the mag, and barrel done. The mag is removable, and holds 18 dark grey connectors. 4 Organizing my K'nex! (that's merely half of it, sadly) 5-8 K'nex coaster with tube supports, I'm guessing it'll be done in about a month. 9-10 K'nex fan, it goes super fast. (The blades are temporary) 11-22 Noreastern (super big storm, google it) came! About 2-3 feet of water in the back road, fuddled basements, fallen trees, and more! I had a video, but Ilost it. If I find it, I'll put it on Youtubw.

Snowpocalypse! Share your stories and pictures!

Have you been buried by the American snowpocalypse? (Or is it snowmageddon?) We Brits thought we had it tough recently, but thirty-eight inches?  That's almost a metre! There are quite a few pictures (more pictures) and stories on the BBC, even another Washington snowball fight (no guns, this time). What about iblers, though?  Can you get to your workshops?

Bizarre weather clouds!

We're all gonna die!!!

If you've seen the news you might have seen that the state of Florida is in the path of a tropical storm. However if you are in the state, seeing local coverage, you'll know that we're in the path of a Class 12 DeathStorm!!! In reality, the situation is even more dire than even the local news reports, I'm down to my last beer. One plus, it only took an imminent natural disaster to get our governor to visit the state, he's been too busy campaigning for mccain. I just want you to know, that is I don't make it out this time, the gold is buried under a big W!

The storm 222 V1.0

I have a new mechanism for a knex gun, and hopefully a new storm 220. It can switch between semi auto and full auto and is chain driven. I won't give away the mechanism in case anyone beats me to it, but is there anything you guys could suggest I could add to it? edit: It is now posted with full instructions

Storm Trooper From Trash Cans

There was a set of videos in YouTube that showed how to make an awesome storm trooper out of trash cans... Unfortunatly I don't have access to YouTube at work or at the local library... and have a convention I want to wear it to this friday... If someone would watch through it and post an instructable that would be great... or at least post the item list here and I can figure it out from there... I just really want to have it done by this weekend. Also, TO COME -> GONK COSTUME (I made this one myself, and it turned out great)

Instructables HQ flooded!

The San Francisco Bay area is being hammered by a series of winter storms right now. There are gusts to 75 MPH and a torrent of rain. All that wind-swept rain has flooded our server room and created a foot-deep lake on the runways outside the control tower! If things aren't working right on the site, it's the rain's fault, really...This storm is actually pretty tame by East Cost standards, and I'm proud to report I got a little bit of kitesurfing in yesterday morning on the front of it before the wind and rain truly picked up. It's just that we have perfect weather 90% of the year here, so it's really the relative difference, not the absolute magnitude, that makes people talk about how bad it is.

Mammatus Clouds Observed in Aurora Colorado

A thunderstorm rolled in at about 3:00 p.m. near my house in Aurora Colorado. I was amazed by the clouds that were present, and recognized some of them as "Mammatus Clouds." These clouds are fairly rare, I've only ever seen then twice. They are named "Mammatus Clouds" because they resemble a mammals breast. These clouds were not as distinctly mammatus as the previous ones that I had observed, but they are still mammatus clouds nontheless. I thought that these are really cool, and that someone might enjoy seeing them. Enjoy! 3:00-3:55 6-15-2012 Aurora, Colorado

Why are your k'nex guns named as they are?

Why did you name your guns like they are? Was it random? Does it stand for something? Or is there some long or complicated reason involving foreign translation or coke or some film? eg. my storm guns are all good for fast fights with their quick reloads times. They are assault weapons, the german translation "Sturmgewehr", which can also be translated to mean storm rifle. the 22_ bit comes from the fact that it took me precisely 2 months and 20 days to perfect my rifle, and the number has gone up to help with chronology, not to do with hours. And you?

Glowy Umbrella

I had an idea today I thought would be interesting after reading about this - http://www.richardbox.com/ - how about integrating a fluorescent tube into the handle of an umbrella. If the tube was supported inside an acrylic clear (or coloured) tube and had some kind of connection to the handle and to the tip of the umbrella, then when walking under pylons, in a storm (eek?!), or in any situation where there would be a big potential difference between something above the user and earth. This could be interesting near tram/train lines.What do people think?

OK to post?

I made a suppressor/ recoil compensator for a Umarex Steel Storm bb repeater pistol and would like to post the how to. Is that OK? It is relatively esy to build, and being made from household and hardware store parts, it is very inexpensive as well.

My 2 dogs are afraid of thunder and lightning. They always get under your feet and trip you during storms. Any Ideas? Answered

I have 2 dogs. One is a toy poodle (my sisters), and the other is a mutt. (Hound, German Shepard, and a couple of other breeds) My problem is, they are afraid of storms, particularly thunder storms, and I love them to death but they get under your feet, trip you, jump on you (it hurts when the mutt jumps on you (75lbs.) ), and they whine. I just wanted to see if anyone had an idea that would cure them if this.

Giant Knit Animals Storm CHA

Our friends at Lion Brand Yarns recently suffered a collective wave of gigantism when they set about designing this Winter's offering for the Craft and Hobby Association.  What may have started as a collection of delicately detailed stuffed animals has grown to monstrous proportions.  (Monstrously adorable that is!) Scroll through their flickr stream so you can get a fair idea of the full scale of these creatures.  And if that's not enough, come see them in person at this year's Maker Faire! While you're checking out these amazing creations, get your inspiration on for our upcoming Critters Contest with Lion Brand.   Ladies and gentlemen, start your needles!
