My Dishnet just got blown over by wind/rain. It will take possibly weeks for them to come out and re-point the dish again. Is there a way to make your own Satelite finder? We live in a rural location.

Are YOU affected by Pokemon seizures? ( Watch at your own risk! )

So, as many of you have known, the animated TV show Pokemon is famous for causing over 700 Japanese kids seizures via continuously flashing red and blue lights. Now, I am proposing you a challenge, can YOU endure the infamous red and blue lights? I can. only feel a bit dizzy, but nothing close to seizures. No YouTube viewers are affected by it ( although few felt dizzy ). So, are YOU affected by Pokemon seizures? Or are Japanese kids wussies? Find out by watching the video!WARNING!WARNING!WARNING!WARNING!WARNING!WARNING!WARNING!WARNING!WARNING!WATCH AT YOUR OWN RISK, YOU WILL NOT HELD ME RESPONSIBLE IF YOU GOT SEIZURES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DIY Espresso

Hey all! I'm looking for collaborators in this project, I'm planning on making an espresso machine for my venue (The Alibi). Since professional machines can cost over 5000 dollars, I would like to make one for under 150. I will compromise and allow us to move back to the 50's and have it be hand pressed, in fact, a steampunk espresso is exactly what I'm looking for. Huge levers and spinning gears are perfect. The only critical thing would be the water temperature (i hear it has to be =>199 & Any ideas?

Instructables Meeting

I was just wondering. For people who are not able to make it to the Instructables events like the one in San Francisco, could one of us here host our own event or a sort of get together of people here at Instructables. For example I live in Kansas and would it be ok if I organized that for people in this area. I'm not saying I will but I'm asking this for if others want to host one in their area as well. If thats alright of course.

Game Console

I was just wondering how easy it would be to make your own simple game console to hook up to tvs. dosent have to have 3d graphics but it would be a plus. i just kinda want something to play around with and make my own games for it. price isnt really a problem but even a computer that can run .exes from a cd, and plug into a tv, and posibly even play through a online server with other people. edit: ok i meant like using microcontrolers now. i want to make a gamboy like system and possibly even wireless. i know you can play games using micro comtrolers, but no idea what i would need. anyone with any idea about this please comment. oh, and a lcd screen too, so that would prolly ne a little work, but im up for it

Your Dream Game

Let's say that you have an idea for making a videogame. You are good with 3D software, designing, game flow, you are creative, and you are a programming GOD. What woud you dream game be? Would it be a simple arcade or a puzzle game? Or would it be a complex RPG or action game? Would it have a story? Are you even working on it now? Do you have artwork or ideas you wish to share? Remember-it is your dream game. It's whatever you want it to be.
