I'm looking at the book and fabric wallpapers and having thoughts...

Might find a big board and an old book to make up a nice thing, granted it means finding a book I'm willing to destroy and have on my wall...

Get two copies of the book, then you can show every page...

O.K O.K so I found the link you included, but what I meant, was, how is it that you find the cool sites on the internet?  You are a-m-a-zing.  Also, I can't find the clock in a jar...  :0(

But you haven't made an Instructable yet, just a video. Here's the previous Instructable for the Clock-in-a-Jar.

I can't even figure out how to insert a video, let alone an Instructable-still some what of a ludite, I guess

You can't be a Luddite, since you like technology :-)

If you want to just publish out a video, there's a button on the Submit page.

If you want to embed a video in a comment, like some of us do, use the Rich Editor button and look for the little "movie frames" icon. That'll bring up a pop-up in which you paste in the "embed" code (not just a URL!) that you copied from YouTube, or Vimeo, or wherever.
