Specific language groups or forums

Hi, not sure this is a proper place to ask, but is there a way or possibility to start a group on a language other than English? Would love to encourage people to participate more, btu there is this language boundary. Thanks!

Flag request: "other"

I'm sure this has been suggested elsewhere, but nothing came of it, either way, and it has come up again in a conversation with another member by PM. Currently, Instructables can be flagged for three reasons - "inappropriate", "incomplete" or "spam". Whilst they cover most eventualities, I would like to propose a fourth flag option: "other". Of course, "other" is rather vague, so its use would require details - clicking it would open a comment or message box to allow a brief description of the reason for the flag, whether it is the original source of a project that has been ripped off from elsewhere, or a concern regarding the safety or legality of a posting. I don't know coding, so I don't know if such a system is possible with this site. If it isn't, then can I suggest that a fourth flag option be added called "Legal issues", or some other catch-all phrase that covers issues of intellectual ownership and site liability.

What in the world is this? Answered

I found a metal object. It is cone shaped with a handle.  The cone has something inside that you can turn (from the top) to scrap around the inside.  Measurements of the cone is about 3 inches across bottom and 3 inches tall.  The handle is about 4 inches in length. If you turn the part that looks like a G it scraps the inside. Thanks to anyone smart enough to know. DD

What is the "other" bar in itunes?

 I recently got a new iPod touch 3g 8gb and I u[loaded 30 games and 40 songs because most of my songs are still pending. I noticed when I uploaded a video, updated apps and songs that there was this huge chunk of "other" in the itunes page. There is a photo down there. I have also read about it that I should get rid of contacts (which I have), notes ( which I have) Calender notes ( which I have) and album art ( which I also have). Recently when I synced it the songs were copying form my music into the Ipod for no reason. I have also read about "ghost data" which comprises of songs which do not show but are there... Help me please

What to do with a Nintendo DS

Somebody gave me a nintendo DS for free because it had a broken top screen. Using the power of instructables I replaced the top screen and now have a perfect Nintendo DS. Problem is...... I never play video games, I have no use for a DS. Anybody have any good ideas of things to make with a Nintendo DS.....either using the DS as a whole or savaging it for parts?

How to limit DC current without affecting Voltage?

I would like to be able to choke current example 12-20amps from the 40amp peak to peak keeping voltage level to rise when the current begins to fall again as stabling after a huge load peak. This will preserve energy consumption on my circuit. Things ive researched Transformer choke Current limit thorough chips add a pwm and control (expensive and time consuming)

Intact fog light wiring and switch going to waste, what else could they be used for?

I'm 16 and have a '83 Toyota Tercel, a bit of a junker, but I'm trying to learn everything I can from it. The previous owner removed the front turn signal assemblies and replaced them with fog lights which isn't legal to drive in MT. I bought and installed the new turn signal assemblies, and almost removed the fog light wiring (plus the switch inside the car to turn them on), but I would hate to waste all that wiring already set up nice and neat. What else could I hook up to them? Any ideas?

Getting sponsorship?

Hello everyone, I am currently by the end of my studies and I am also working as part-time.  Now I applied to be a volunteer for the Olympics and Paralympics for 2016 in RIO and have been selected for both which I am really excited for, but the only problem is that to be able to go over there It is very costly as I live on the other side of the world and I don't have enough funds and time is very limited to acquire those as well.   So what I need is to find a way so that I can get sponsored for my air tickets and take care of my accommodation.  Here are the things that I have been thinking and trying to do as well. First I looked for a job and I got it but the problem is that the pay isn't enough so that I can get the required amount to cover all my expenses.  I cannot get another job as I need to complete my studies before June so time isn't in my favour again.  However I think that I can work freelance online for short jobs such as 1 day to 1 month and If I can get as many as possible It should help.  SInce those won't be enough I need to look for sponsors but I do not know where to look for and how to do it and I was also thinking of getting a job in the US or even south america so as to be able to stay and work there for a while after the event so that I can take care of myself and explore at the same time before returning to my home country.   Any help. I really appreciate it.

(SOLVED) Break circuit = Make circuit?

Basically, what I want to do is activate something when there is no current somewhere else. Examples of uses of this would include turning an LED on when there is no light on an LDR and turning it off when there is light, rather than the other way around, along with turning an LED on when a circuit is broken by opening a door. Apologies if I have not been clear enough. Is this possible?  EDIT: Thanks to NachoMahma, I have it set up with a transistor. I will post a schematic if anyone is interested.

Operational Amplifier input voltage affects other input?

Hello, I have created a simple circuit where 2 10k resistors make a voltage divider. Supply voltage is 12.5V and if I measure in between the 2 resistors, I'm getting 6.3V. Great! Now I connect that 6.3V to the +input of an OpAmp. Result: the value is still 6.3V. Great! (The OpAmp is also fed with 12.5V) Now I connect the -input of the OpAmp to the supply voltage (12.5V). The voltage in between both resistors suddenly changes from 6.3V to 10.1V. NOT Great! Now I connect the -input of the OpAmp to ground (0V). The voltage in between both resistors changes from 6.3V to 2.4V. ?! The output of the OpAmp is not connected to anything. I thought that OpAmp inputs, in theory, have infinite resistance? The datasheet of this OpAmp (LT1253) sais the input resistance should be 10Mohm I also tested this same thing with the LT1497 and the results are the same. When the -input of the  OpAmp was connected to 12.5V, I measured the current going into that pin, 39mA!! (Only measured on the LT1253) What's the problem here? Are both OpAmps broken? Or is there something about the way OpAmps work, that I clearly don't understand?

Wisdom Teath and any other Sugery

So I have to get all four of my wisdom teeth removed this Friday at 7am (tomorrow), and to make it worse we have Friday off of school. But I wanted to get it done before the holidays (TURKEY!!). So any horror story's (of any surgery doesn't have to be wisdom teeth)? How old were you when you got yours out (I'm 14)? Did you even have them removed? BTW: There putting me under (anesthesia) if you were wondering.

JonnyBGood's Other Hobby

Well this may seem out of place in the K'nex forum, but since I am a member of the group I think this still applies. For the last couple of months I've been pretty inactive as far as my K'nex building has been concerned but as you can probably see from the pictures my time was being completely consumed by my Nerf hobby. Let me also state this while I'm at it.... No this does not mean I've stopped K'nex building, I've just been sidetracked for awhile. My reasoning for moving to Nerf is mainly because of a resolve I made at New Years to start tinkering with electronics, and of course I wanted to keep shooting projectiles so Nerf was perfect. It also allowed me to participate in more wars, again I love K'nex and I look forward to our once a year K'nex war, but one isn't quite enough for me.  Nerf also gave me one other edge that I wasn't getting with K'nex, and that was a marketable product. Kids are willing to pay on average (based on me stalking ebay for a month) 40-80$ depending on gun and paint job quality. So I have a possible source of income custom painting Nerf guns.  When should I expect another K'nex ible'? Well I have one last Nerf build I really want to do ( rapidstrike uzi ) and after that I will refocus of getting some war guns together for the K'nex war this year.    So in summary, that has been what I've been up too. If you like any of my work and would like to make an offer I will gladly consider anything reasonable, so send me a PM. I plan on eventually selling "Vanguard" themed white Strongarm's because I can paint those relatively quickly. The Rayven Roughcut integration ( Mine is called the Universal Remote) is my piece de resistance right now and I'm insanely happy with how it's going. If you know a friend that may be interested in my work, I'd appreciate any referral. Also note that I'm not doing any commissions.... yet. I'm kind of addicted to the art of making a well painted and functioning Nerf gun right now.  Thanks for reading, more K'nex projects coming soon!     JonnyBGood
