I heard on the radio today that TIME TRAVEL was possible. Itll only set you back 10 trillon $. You can only go forward in time but then you can go back if they make one that can go back in time in the future. (like mysterio) ooooooo-weeeeee-oooooooo edit:better grammer and puncuation and cool sound effect.

Could anyone help me with that time /magic fountain https://www.instructables.com/id/The-Time-Fountain-Also-know-as-Magic-Fountain/ What do i have to do with this information "The transistor (2N1711) can handle a maximum current of 500 mA"? could you also tell me wich potentiometer i should use and how i have to control the leds with them?

Just noticed that instead of the usual hours I now see a lot of time stamps in minutes. Looks a bit weird to see "Last posting -285 minutes ago". I don't mind a challenge every now and then but is it a feature or a bug that we get minutes instead of hours now?

Well that forum on time travel got me thinking...How We Could "Discover" Time TravelWrite down, carve on stone, burn into our memory, tatoo on my back, or something, that if/when time travel comes into exsistence, someone needs to travel back in time to a specific time and date in our near future (Instructables Control Tower, New Years 2008 would be a good time/place). If everyone were to record this, eventually someone/s might do so, meaning that a time traveler might turn up at Instructables HQ on New Year's. I personally intend to attempt to do so, or at least get my future kids to:)Anyways, if a good number of people do exactly this, there might be quite a congregation at Instructables on New Year's. Or of course, no one might turn up at all...

Guys i got an idea but dont have the resources. i was wondering if we could join a nichrome wire to the wires that connect to the speaker of an alarm clock ,dat way we could fix the time when we want the wire too burn and thus putting a simple cracker near the contraption would give us a timebomb.any one interested in collaborating in such an instructable pleasecontact me. thank you

After showing off something that I've worked on or made there will be someone, usually anonymous on the internet, who will say, "This guy clearly has too much time on his hands."Yet these same people will gladly spend hours on blogs or on digg making comments. If there was ever a worthless way to throw away your voice online, commenting on digg is one of the best. Or maybe youtube. There's no point to that for anyone.For me it's a matter of priorities. I don't watch TV and only occasionally watch movies. I think that for many people it's possible to get free time. The hard part is deciding which way to use it. People are clearly willing to spend it on distractions. It was recently announced that the average WoW player spends 17 hours a week online. And according to the A.C. Nielsen Co. the average TV viewer watches 28 hours a week. That's a lot of building time.So when someone says that I have a lot of time on my hands I can just laugh and know that I'm putting my time where I want to. It helps that I don't have kids, I know, but there are many others in the same situation as myself who work hard on keeping up on their cultural knowledge and that's about it.Time to make something new.

I'm not sure how I managed it, possibly it's a result of running the washing machine, tumble dryer and my coffee machine simultaneously, but I appear to be posting from seven and a quarter hours in the future. Check out the image below for proof... Or maybe it was csharyk's fault? He's interested in woowoo tech, maybe he pulled me in after something he did elsewhere / elsewhen? Update: it's spreading! (second image) (I think I'll move this thread to Bugs) (If it's important, I made that screenshot at about 10:13am, UK time)

I live in a narrow road with high walls each side. Getting my car out of the gateway is therefore a problem because I have to stick the bonnet out into the road before I can see that it is clear. So I bought a 12 volt LED flashing beacon to put on the top of the wall at my gate. Now I need a device which will run the beacon for about 20/30 seconds after I push a button, giving me time to get into my car and edge out. I could, of course, stop and block the road while I go back and turn the beacon off but a time switch would be a help to good relations with other drivers. Can anyone please tell me of a suitable switch or circuit? John C

I want to set off a few fireworks on the night of my wedding aniversary, and rather than run off and light the fuse, or rely on my dopey brother, I was after a time delay with, say, a watch? So I could set it for 10pm and bamoo.. 10pm we outside enjoying drinks, and a few fireworks go up! I have seen somewhere a guy light a match with a cheap electronic watch using a strand from a ball of steel wool, but I forget exactly what he did and where I saw the video now.. If I could copy that I could use the match to light the fireworks! Any ideas like that would be great.

Oops- tried to take a time lapse but the shutter was set on burst (40fps), so every time it took a picture it took about 14 pics in bursts.... The camera took around 3000 or so shots on this burst setting, how can I take out a picture every 14 pics or the shots automatically? Is there any "picker" software, mac or pc, that will take 1 out of 14 images repeatedly automatically???? thanks for helping me fix my dumb mistakes- again ;-) -A907

When puppy-sitting for a family member's dog, does it matter whether I go to her home or she comes to mine? the one year-old dog knows me well (we are good friends), and has been to my house a few times -- but it is two states away from hers, and she has only previously visited with her owner? her owner will be gone for one week
I would like to build a small lockbox to which I could remotely provide access. For example, I leave the box at a property. At a later date, an employee is in the area and we would like him to access the property without having to make a trip back to the home office to pickup the keys. We provide him a one-time access code and he retrieves the key. I recently discovered how much fun Raspberry Pi DIY projects are and this seems like an ideal candidate for my next challenge but I have to confess I am still a total neophyte to all this with no real notion as to the best way to move forward. I would welcome any suggestions or ideas. I also realize my definition of the problem might be more vague than is ideal but given my lack of confidence vis-a-vis which details are relevant, I thought it would be more productive for me to answer questions rather than post a giant wall of useless information - which is my long-winded way of saying, please do not hesitate to ask me any questions if they'll help get me pointed in the right direction.

For most of us summer is almost here (Hah, not here. It's still rainy and cloudy....) and some of us are probably not going to be here at some point or another. So I thought that instead of people posting a whole bunch of forum topics people could just post here, that way people wouldn't have to look every where to see if someone was just on vacation instead of locked in a cupboard in someones basement. Anyway, I wont be here July 16-19 because I'm going to camp. Then sometime after that I'm going to Lake Chelan. I might be able to get one once or twice there though. Then August 10-16 I'll be at a different camp and then I'm going to Sunbanks sometime after that.

Hi folks I'm new to this I was wondering if someone can help me with these questions I've answered them but I would like one of you expert folks to tell me if they are correct or where I'm going wrong Or if I have the correct formulas its just a question for an exam revision which I have soon. A coil of inductance 4H and resistance of 80Î© is connected in parallel with a 200Î© of resistor of negligible inductance across a 200v dc supply. The switch connecting these to the supply is then opened; the coil and resistor remain connected together. State in each case one for immediately before and one for immediately after opening the switch; The current Through the resistor Switch closed 200v/200Î© =1a Switch open 200v/80Î© =2.5a The current through the coil Switch Closed 200v/80Î© = 2.5a Switch open 200v/(200ohm +80Î©) = 0.714a The e.m.f induced in the coil Switch closed (2.5a*80Î©)/200v = 0v Switch Open 2.5a *(200Î© + 80Î©) = 700v The voltage across the coil Switch closed 200v/1a = 200v Switch open 2.5a * 200Î© = 500v

7 AM Pacific coast time is not a good time to wake up to a signal from my iPhone that says there's a new email from instructables.com Please deliver it some other time during the regular daytime. Yes, I can turn off my cell phone, but then I'd forget to turn it on and yes, there are other methods to work around, but that would affect all my other email so I just like you to change the delivery time.

What changes have you noticed in your time visiting this site? One that stands out to me, is the increase in k'nex instructables, and the decrease in explosive, and weaponry ones. Cause the weaponry (tazer glove that is) is what brought me to this site.

Say if I publish an instructable now and a suitable competition comes up in 2 weeks time, will I still be able to enter it? What is the maximum time interval between publishing and entering a new comp. please? Many thanks.

Here's the situation-I close a switch completing a circuit,providing DC power to a load(6 volt,0.1 A).But I do not need the load to start functioning as soon as the switch is closed i.e,only after a delay of say..30 seconds.I googled for "Time delay circuits" but the ones I got were either dealing with AC or the transistor -capacitor(Time Constant) based circuits that makes a load function for a preset time after the circuit switch is opened.I think I could achieve this "pre-delay" with elements such as transistors,resistors,capacitors etc. but I can't figure out how.Please suggest possible circuits that can be used to achieve my purpose.

This is for a competition it can not use any electrical device and it must literally fit inside a 30cm cube but it can expand in after the starting bell. If anybody can point me in the direction of plans or kits that would be awesome.

Hi, Please note this is not a complain or anything of a sort but rather just a wondering, a question. I am not a total newbie here but I am also not much of an active user. I am a busy leatherworker with no spare time for almost anything. I do love writing tutorials and helping others who want to know more about working with leather. When I write a tutorial I put my time and effort to make it really good so a person who follows it have almost none questions left. It does take a huge amount of time which usually leads to the fact that I enter a contest at the very last day/moment. And here comes my question. Since the voting is open from the start of the contest don't those who entered in the beginning have more benefits/chances to win simply because they have entered early and so have more views/votes? I know there are those three days still open for voting after a contest is closed but this is a too short period comparing to the month or even more time available to the early birds. How does the entry time affect the selection of the finalists which from what I understand is based purely on viewers' voting? Do judges take into consideration the fact that the entry was at the last minute so could not get too many votes for the very same reason? Thank you! Era

Hello, I have a little question about regular diodes. I know that when we connect a high frequency signal to a diode (in series with a resistor), that diode won't fully cut off the current as soon as the voltage becomes negative. (see picture) But what happens if we're not working on high frequencies, but we do create the same negative flank like in the picture? (so just the same as half the cycle of that high frequency signal, but we only do it once?) will the diode still have that same recovery time if the signal goes from positive to negative Very quickly? if that is so, that means that every regular diode fails at blocking a negative voltage pulse? Greetings, Electorials

In my design classroom project, my students want to build a 230V AC electric immersion heater (for heating water in a bucket) whose duration of heating the user should be able to set. The user should be able to set the ON duration by pressing up- and down- keys (operating 2 switches) to increase or decrease numbers that show on a dual 7-segment display (for showing 1-99). The numbers that show in the 7-segment display is the time in minutes the heater should stay on for and then switch itself off. Please guide me to a circuit that would do the above. All our induction cookers, washing machines, etc have this interface, I know this is not something new, but not being an electronics person I don't know where and with what terminology to look. Please help.

Hi all, well i have started to get more interested in the community on here, and i can see it has alot to offer. The only problem is, i dont have alot of spare time. so i need help with things. I mainly need advice on how to navigate the forums- there seem to be so many topics, and so many sections, that frankly its too much and i get confused. how do people use it? do you just ignore entire sections or what? im used to forums where you go on, and it marks any topics that have had changes since you last looked etc. Thanks Gmjhowe ps, you have all been great so far. pps do you like my new avatar? i think its cool.
