How a CPU is born

    While doing some research, I saw a link that said "How CPUs Are Made: From Sand to Silicon". Mildly intrigued and not knowing anything about how they are made, I clicked and went to the page and read.     The article briefly runs through a highly abridged series of steps in the making of what eventually turns out to be an Intel i7 processor. It starts off with the raw materials (SiO2, e.g., sand) and how they turn it into monstrous (about 220 pounds!), essentially pure, silicon ingots from which wafers are made. and many steps later the processors are boxed up and ready for store shelves.

Who REALLY created the K'NEX gun?

Okay, so everybody know that (your name here) created the first knex gun. Or did he? Oodalumps said on his 7 shot pistol ( posted january 1, 2007) "This is one of my favorite guns because it's very easy to use and shoots hard. I came up with this design a few months before I made my first MG 4 years ago; and just recently decided to make it into a pistol." That's right. 4 years ago. 2003. If you can find any records before that date, please post a link.

Hey everyone I really need your help with a winner iOS game idea! i have made many games in the past but ended up scrapping those ideas because they just weren't good enough and wouldn't make any money.

But if you could help me with game ideas that would be very helpful and appreciated, I would also leave your names in the credits of the game thanks.

Get into PCB creation? Answered

Well I just realized over the past few weeks that I really need to start getting onto the PCB bandwagon and start manufacturing my own stuff...  So... I need materials and instructions on how to make my own PCBs... I have copper boards already (sourcing them is not a problem...), and i am pretty good at designing boards in EAGLE (I find it fun), but I need a method of etching them.... I have tried many toner methods and they never work how I like, I always get some pretty big mistakes and etching them sucks...  I have heard of photo resist methods, and it sounds wonderful because it has a pretty good accuracy and can go down to some pretty fine wiring... My only problem is that you have to get presensitized boards (Expensive!), as well as other chemicals... As for etching, I think I am fine, I have used a vinegar/salt/something combo and it works pretty well, just takes a while to etch.. I have some muratic acid but that stuff is nasty so I have never really tried that.. Anybody have any non-toner PCB creation process that is pretty inexpensive? (I am in high school and have a limited budget already...)

Knexing for the community!

Hey, so one of the things which annoys me, and likely annoys you guys as well, is people posting the most epic creations you have ever seen in picture form, with the sentence "Should i post???", and then when you ask them to post instructions, they say that they've broke it up, and you can never get to build that gun, even though your eyes are drooling and your mouth is crying tears of cabbage... WELL LOOK NO FURTHER! From now on (actually whenever i feel like it), if there is i gun with no instructions, and a reasonable piece count, send me the link, and i will attempt to build it, and then post instructions. OR if you are so amazingly good at instructables and knex and stuff, but don't have the time to make one, again, I WILL DO IT FOR YOU, and i will actually give you guys, the creators, all the credit! All i require is enough pics from different angles! So what are you waiting for? LET'S MAKE A BETTER INSTRUCTABLES COMMUNITY! (ps. this shouldn't be against the code of conduct if you ask the creator first if you can get me to build it, otherwise it is stealing of content)

Best and Favorite Knex Creations

I have been using knex probably for over 10 years and I have built a ton of different weopons and things but a fwew stick out. I do love my new transformers but my best work was a wearable mech suit. The boots could hold over 200 lbs and covered the whole body. My favorite was an AT-AT from starwars where if you hit the underbelly of the walker the head falls off and it drops to the floor like the movie one. I want to know people Best and favorite knex creations over the years.

my new knex creation... the destroyer machine gun!!

My newest creation... the distroyer. the gun lives up the the name. it is a 36-shot machine gun. you could also call it a gatling gun. it is compleately my creation. i am thinking about posting instructions but i do not have lots of time to do it. also it is a very big gun. most people will not have the peaces to make it anyway. it uses ruffly 680 peaces. it moves fast. it can shoot all 36 shots in + or - 5 seconds. also this verson of the gun is a bit rofe. before i even think about instructions it will need some moding.

Best knex creations of 2010

So another year has rolled by.  Many new things were posted, some were pretty good!  Now I am hosting a community contest to see what people liked the most.  There are 3 categories, and you can select up to 3 creations for each category (You don't have to pick 3 if you don't want to).  So you can pick your top 9 most favorite creations of the year.  The categories are: Best overall Knex gun Best Knex replica Best non-gun. You can select a creation to go in more than 1 category.  For example, if you thought a knex replica of a real life rollercoaster was good, you could vote for it in the "Best knex replica" and "Best non-knex gun" categories. There are some restrictions of course.  The creations you vote for HAVE to have a post date of 2010.  Preview pictures can be posted earlier than that, but they have to be posted this year.  Also, you cannot pick a gun that you made.  For example, I cannot vote for my Halo Battle rifle to go in "Best knex replica".  If the creation you vote for came from a site outside of Instructables or KI (like Youtube), you will need to provide a link for it. What are you waiting for?  Get voiting!  I'm giving away patches to the top 3 winners in each category, plus a patch for my personal favorite, which makes 10.  Voting ends Monday, January 24, which gives you 3 weeks to vote.

A late newsflash - Creationism being taught legally.

This just turned up in my email:***www.NewScientist.com - NEWSFLASH*** On the 28 June, The Science Education Act was passed as law in the State of Louisiana. This piece of legislature now allows teachers in this US state to present non-scientific alternatives to evolution, global warming and cloning – including ideas related to intelligent design. Opponents fear that Louisiana teachers are now free to present evolution and other targeted topics as matters of debate rather than broadly accepted science, and could have national implications.
