LASER CUTTER CONTEST CLOSED Answered

Picture of

From the Laser Cutter contest page:

UPDATE:

Entry deadline extended to January 1, 2008!

What were we thinking?!?
The holidays are the perfect time to finish your Laser Cutter Contest entry, and we don't want to judge during our family vacations.

So, we're extending the entry deadline to 11:59pm PST Tuesday, January 1, 2008 to take advantage of the entire holiday season. Finalists will be announced on Monday, January 7, 2008. User voting will still end on January 31st, and we'll still announce the ultimate winner on Monday, February 4th, 2008.

Use this extra time to make something truly incredible!



Happy holidays from the Instructables team.

Awww. I really must make something. But I just got Guitar Hero 3 and Phantom Hourglass. Videogames or productivity?! :D

Which is more important? Instructables or school? :P

To me? Instructables! My parents aren't too happy about that, though...

The correct answer is school, since it ultimately enables higher-quality Instructables. ;)

Yes.... I considered that, but then decided that Instructables has the potential to teach me how to make awesome muffin-related stuffs, whereas school will only teach me material useful in the real world ;-P Although, I do agree with you.... School's important, I just hate it at the moment. *grumble*

All i know is that I've learned more from instructables in a year than I've learned at school in three.

Whoa, you must have a much different course type then I did in school (high school Chemistry was rough enough, even with my love of the science).

I can't wait until next year so I can go to a different school and take some better classes than my current school has to offer. Like biology and things like that so I can be a veterinarian.

Going back to school after a long break is like that scene in horror movies where the victim is being pulled away and clawing the ground.

Sliding deadlines are the mark of poor planning, poor resource allocation, and contest sponsors that don't feel that they have gotten their money's worth on the contest submissions. This is Squid's show and dollar so I don't blame them, but this extension really just penalizes anyone with the fortitude to stick to a schedule. Not that I couldn't use the extra time, I've got stuff on the back burner that could be dynamite for this contest. W00t!
