I can't find this ible!

First of all, I wasn't sure where to post this, so I posted it here. Anyways... I'm making an ible (muhahahahaaaaa!) and I need to find something that I saw a while ago... It's a giant Rube Goldberg machine that in the end smashes a custard egg. I think that this won a contest, so why can't I find it??? If you made this or know where it is, tell me pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease!

Can't find project: help with search

I am trying to find a project that I downloaded the plans for a year or two ago.  It was a project for building a portable work surface.  It was wooden, made out of a single piece of 4'x4' plywood.  It was a hinged box with a slanted surface.  It held a power strip, a spool for solder and wires, and two helping hands made out of thick copper wire.  I have tried over a dozen keyword combinations, but all of them seem too generic. Can anybody out there point me in the right direction?  If it helps, I think the project was featured in the makezine blog. Thanks, Keith

First timer can't find the drafts

Opened the editor for the first time, added text, photos, videos, keywords, and clicked a "save" button. Where is my draft? No link. My little account icon pops up a menu with a logout button, a new instructable button, and links labeled "You" "Inbox" "Feed" "Enrolled Classes" and that's it. None of these links produce a page with "Drafts" on it. The how-to's and FAQ's say nothing. I don't dare log out because everything I've done might vanish without a link. Where is it? Thanks.Hallelujah!3Disciple

Can't find the right pins on flyback transformer

 I used various guides to find the negative 0V pin but all outputs give the same values. What can I do to find it? It's one of those 'new' transformers. Also, my transformer to test the thing and use the multimeter is about 14VDC (and the readings when testing give about 16V :P). Should this work? As I live in Europe it should run on 240V. Something else regarding this: Do I really need to make a circuit driver for it or can I use the onboard waveform transformer thingy too? And, if I get this thing to work, could I make a 2N3055 driver but with a different transistor? (I have a IRF630N transistor, would that work? I've also got  C546B and C556B!)

Drafts can't be deleted

It's been a few days since I've started to have problems with the drafts. After the last update I can't see the preview anymore, the same problem it's been reported by other users in  the bug report "Drafts messed up". The problem cannot be solved by changing the browser and refreshing the page after removing the cookies, and since then every new drafts (only step by step) ends up messed up in the same way. As if it wasn't enough I found the drafts cannot be reliably deleted. I first noticed it as I was making new drafts; after I saw they were still messed I deleted them just to find them again in the Draft page; apparently they disappeared on their own after some days. Are the problems related? I noticed that as I press "Delete"  for a split second a message appears: "sorry, there's been a problem updating your instructable", I tried to take a picture of it but it is too fast. I am waiting for theese problems to be solved since I would like to take part in some contests.  Thanks in advance

Finding that perfect brownie

Ok, I have tried and tried and I need some assistance from the Instructable community. My favorite brownies in the world are Ghirardelli's Triple Chocolate Brownie mix. It's a delicious chocolatey blend with 3 different chocolate chips inside (semisweet, milk and bittersweet/dark). The batch comes dry and you add 1/3 oil, 1/3 cup water (though I use coffee), and 1 egg for a 8x8 pan of brownies. My issue is I want to figure out how to make these from scratch. As much as I love them, I'm a scratch kind of girl and I just don't feel like I can call a recipe mine if I'm using a box mix. There's tons of brownie recipes online but none that seem similar. I figured out that the dry mix must obviously have their cocoa powder in it, but I can't find a recipe that has you add egg, oil and water to a dry mix. Many of the recipes I found have you melt one of the chocolates into your chocolate batter, rather than use cocoa powder, but I don't think Ghirardelli does that, unless I'm wrong. And if they did, how would it come as a dry mix? Others might have used powder but then they call for a lot of butter instead just a 1/3 cup of oil. Are there any brownie experts who can figure this one out for me?

Hi, i would just like to say that i have great difficulty getting resources for instructables, this is probably because i'm only 13 and live in the u.k.

Hopefully i might get a debit card soon but even then im worried about bank statements my parents might look at.

Help me find a part!

Hello everyone. Looking for some help on this one. I can't find a clear defined picture of what is operating this sliding mirror. The dealers that carry it don't stock the mirror so can't tell me either unless I buy one, 3k isn't in my budget. I was thinking Linear Motion system but thats a high cost. From the picture I can see the stainless steel-track is L shaped. You can also see the mirror is set away some from the main cabinet, and also that the mirror is at the same height as the cabinet base. I've looked for casters, slides and other things I could hack but nothing seems to fit. You should not be able to see the hardware and thats a feature I would like to keep. I'd love your ideas or links to information. Thanks in advice. You can zoom well on this site.
