Great Exhibition 2010

The Great Exhibition of 2010 was held at London's La Scala nightclub, with over a thousand costumed attendees. Have a look at the BBC video which won't embed - lots of the stuff we are familiar with through such luminaries as gmjhowe, but other, less traditional imagery as well, especially in some of the costumes. There is also a slideshow here My favourites are the actually-steam-powered piano, and the the thunderbuss.

EAA AirVenture 2010!

A bit late for posting this, since I'm leaving in a few hours, but I'll be gone for a week at AirVenture. The camp where I'm staying has WiFi, but I don't have a laptop yet (stupid August release), so I'll be mysteriously silent. I'm hoping to do some industrial espionage and get some better pictures of those posers. May leave some slips of paper with that URL on it at the booth, too. Anyone else going? It's kind of the pinnacle of DIY, building something yourself that can frakkin' FLY. I'll be wearing my Instructables shirt one day, grab me and say hi if you see me.

Best knex creations of 2010

So another year has rolled by.  Many new things were posted, some were pretty good!  Now I am hosting a community contest to see what people liked the most.  There are 3 categories, and you can select up to 3 creations for each category (You don't have to pick 3 if you don't want to).  So you can pick your top 9 most favorite creations of the year.  The categories are: Best overall Knex gun Best Knex replica Best non-gun. You can select a creation to go in more than 1 category.  For example, if you thought a knex replica of a real life rollercoaster was good, you could vote for it in the "Best knex replica" and "Best non-knex gun" categories. There are some restrictions of course.  The creations you vote for HAVE to have a post date of 2010.  Preview pictures can be posted earlier than that, but they have to be posted this year.  Also, you cannot pick a gun that you made.  For example, I cannot vote for my Halo Battle rifle to go in "Best knex replica".  If the creation you vote for came from a site outside of Instructables or KI (like Youtube), you will need to provide a link for it. What are you waiting for?  Get voiting!  I'm giving away patches to the top 3 winners in each category, plus a patch for my personal favorite, which makes 10.  Voting ends Monday, January 24, which gives you 3 weeks to vote.

Access 2010 database manual Answered

Today I had one client with the damaged .mdb file. I asked him about the backup, but he said that he were not made these settings and, accordingly, the backup was not done. The base was created in Access 2010 on the operating system Windows 7. What do I do to restore it?

Instructables Restaurant at PICNIC 2010

I was honored to be asked to open an Instructables Restaurant in Amsterdam as part of the 2010 PICNIC festival.  Faithfully following recipes submitted to our Pizza contest, chefs from Eetcafe De Zwijger served three different types of pizza in an intimate setting within the festival, next to the mobile Fablab.  Each day, the crew served around 50 pizzas split equally between Homemade Pizza Margherita, Rose Garden Pizza, and Flammkuchen - the other type of pizza. The Instructables Restaurant is a combination concept art piece and experimental business model.  What would an open-source restaurant look like?  Can an open-source menu allow patrons to form a deeper relationship with the chef and the food?  Would people show up just to learn how to do it themselves?  With funding from the Waag Society, the creators of the restaurant, Arne Hendricks and Bas van Abel, are trying to answer these questions.  With my permission, they chose to leverage the Instructables brand in their initial "pop-up" restaurants, which have included a Cheesecake cart, DIY BBQ, and a soup night in addition to the Pizza restaurant -- all described on their Instructables Restaurant Blog. The space created for the restaurant at Picnic was great, and probably better than any live event I've ever organized for Instructables.  Two things that worked really well deserve to be specifically pointed out:  handing out comment sheets with each slice of pizza, and tear-away handouts with the recipes and instructions for furniture and decorations.  In one of the images below, you can see a collection of comments about the pizza submitted by tasters.  The handouts had links to the website and short forms of the step-by-step instructions emphasizing that anyone could make the pizza, furniture, or lighting themselves.  (The pads of handouts were especially appealing to me, because literally the next day at NYC Maker Faire, the wind was threatening to blow our business-card-format project cards all over.)  Scanned versions of the handouts are included in the slideshow below: See this slideshow here:  Instructables Restaurant Handouts Arne calls the Instructables Restaurant a "question."  If the answer to his question is yes there is something to an open-source restaurant, he has a spot in mind for a fixed-location version.  I can't wait to eat there. A brief aside: I'm a few inches above average height in the US, but in Holland, I'm short! The Dutch are enormous, as you can see in the group image with the five of us at the restaurant. Looking up to meet people's eyes was an interesting and fun change. More images of the Instructables Restaurant here on Flickr.
