M14 Barrel Fix

For anyone that has or is thinking of building my M14. For those that have built it, you probably may have notice that the barrel at the end does go off at a bit of angle. Luckily I happen to rebuilding it again today and that problem has been fixed. As shown in the pictures, you simply take out the green rods on both sides and then push the orange connectors forward, add a rubber band and the problem is solved. I will include this pictures in the instructions https://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-M14-Instructions-1/. Thanks to those that left a birthday comment in my 21st birthday forum topic, really appreciate it.

"opened & fixed" logo

Hi everybody, I think it would be nice to have something like an "opened and fixed" logo. The purpose being to print it as a sticker, then, for example, when you open and fix an appliance, you can put the sticker on it, and when your friends ask, you can delight them talking endlessly about your endeavor. Irony aside, I think it can be an interesting counterpart to the "warranty void if removed" labels, also encouraging people to open and fix their own devices. There could also be an "opened and hacked" logo. I was thinking in something simple, like an "O&F" with a circle around, or maybe the circle made of a screwdriver. I'm writing this due to my lack of design ability, in hope that someone with that ability finds the idea interesting enough to give it a try. Also, what do you think about it? is it a good idea? would you use it? Cheers, Andres. P.S.: If you think it's worth trying but nobody with technical skills shows up I can try creating a first version on Inkscape.

Old bicycle needed

I am looking for an old bicycle for a project I am working on. Preferably fixed gear, but I would take multi-speed also. I am planning to make a unicycle that would be better for commuting. The one I have now is only a 20 inch wheel and I am looking for anything bigger than that, maybe 24 or 26. Let me know if you are interested in contributing a bicycle to my project. Thanks.

so what's everyone riding here?

I think I have close to eleven bikes in my garage right now (sort of unfortunately), though I only really ride three. for road/ commuting, I have a pacific voyager toys-r-us mountain bike that I converted into sort of a timetrialing singlespeed, complete with a shimano 400 crankset, profile aerobars, champion bullhorns, a look carbon fork, alex 700cs with hutchinson tires, and lots of other ridiculous things that don't belong on such a frame. I ride a diamondback venom park bike for bmx which I found at a garage sale for five bucks, not knowing just how good it actually was and my gary fisher bitter has been decommissioned due to a faulty front hub which blew out my axle and almost ruined my fork, so I'm slinging around a specialized rockhopper on the trails whose back wheel I destroyed and as a result, I've replaced it with a wheel off a peice of crap magna my friend left at my house a while back. I've got several others, but these are my ladies. they come and go quite often for me, but that's what happens. so what are you riding?!

How do you fix the red screen of death on the ps3? Will the gilsky guide fix the ylod for good?

I have 2 ps3's. 1 has the yellow light of death. I am wondering if the way that gilksy fixes it will fix the ylod for good. The other has the red screen of death when you turn it on. I want to know if anyone knows how to fix it without spending a lot of money. I know that there are things like ps3fix.com that can fix it but you need to pay. Has anyone paid and would tell me how to fix it? I have tried to replace the hard drive and the rsod still comes up. I have tried the safe mode and none of that worked. I have tried to format the hard drive and it still doesnt work.
