Sorry for the bad title but can you upload a video without having an account on youtube or metacafe or any of those websites? Like directly to instructables? If so please help me out.

This is a 3" cabinet pull. It caught my eye as a super steam punk component. Just imagine it with two LEDs inside the cage. Anyway how is it made ? That unit is magnetic, has 8/32 cabinet threads, solid otherwise and the cage appears 3/4 rotated This object would be perfect for 3-D printing.

How is

Okay, I needed to buy some parts to build one of those huge Jeopardy tables with the buttons and the lights and all the little wazooos. However, I can only find that has those huge 100mm push buttons, and they also have a arduino relay shield i want. Anyone ever buy from them before? How is their service and shipping response? I WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE ANY HELP CAUSE THE CANADIAN STATION HAD SOME BAD REVIEWS

How to Publish?

I have completed the entry form; embedded the YouTube code in proper place. After logging into Instructables, clicking on You Page, the drop-down menu displays Drafts (1) ..., clicking on Drafts (1) a window displays my entry with a checkbox preceding the entry, I click checkbox then click on the (publish) link and a new window appears that has three tabs. Current tab is Edit. Clicking on Publish fogs the page and the window returns to Edit. I have a Title and have placed a description as well. There is no alteration tried that ends with publication. If I click on preview - the proper video appears along with a Comment. I have been attempting various methods to publish since Friday, March 29th, including changes in browsers, and computers. I am stumped. I have finally answered my own question: One needs to place something in every box, i.e., Description, embed, and a graphic image. And place Tags. Then depress Upload Files. At that point it was self explanatory. Sometimes I am unable to see the tree in the forest. Maybe this may help another.

How did this happen? How is mine not better? Answered

This is my idea: This is the other idea: The second idea was a finalist in a contest on Instructables. I was also in the contest with the first idea. I was wondering exactly how this was a finalist over mine? My idea was the same thing, but improved. It was even entered before his! My idea featured some of the things that people commented as an improvement in his instructable. The only thing I can think of is maybe the simplicity of design? Mine has more to it than just a secret box though, and it was far more concealed.

How to wire this laser? Answered

Hey Guys, I recently needed a laser for a project and as the electronics store had none i thought why non to extract one from a cheap laser diode. So....i got a laser peeled back the casing and got it. But the problem is that it doesnt work. Most probably because one of the contacts doesnt seem to be attached to the laser. Pics have been uploaded. Not that the lower contact doesnt seem to be connected with the rest (p.s it had a spring which used to come in contact with the underside of the button cells. I was wondering if any of you could help me.
