My friend happened to find this website http://chelnyshops.ru/. It shows many Instructables,but doesn't have the creater nor is there a link to Instructables. Just wondered what all of you think. It doesn't bother me that they want to repost it,but there is no credit to all of us. I emailed support and they said that Instructables doesn't own our work ,so we have to deal with it on our own. What is strange to me is that all the pictures and verbiage is on the site but no Name of the maker. Just wondering! Thank you! The Juliart

Hi, I feel like i have destroyed my life and i dont know what to do but give up in life. Well first it started i had a horrible acid trip a while ago and i still think about that day and i still get the same bad feelings that i got to this day i feel like everyone around me is against me even people i dont know but especially my friends. I have failed all my college classes because i reallly dont know if i wanna do what i am going to college for right now. I have just got two huge speeding tickets and have to go to court and am going to loose my liscense most likely and since im 18 my insurance has gone out the roof and i cant afford to pay for my ticket i just got lime two weeks ago. I was stupidly stupidly stupidly seeing a 15 year old girl and we had sex and her parents found out and they are threatening to put me in jail for statutory rape which this just happened this week. My ex girlfriend just called me and told me i might have a STD cause she got tested and has an std, and i might have given the 15 year old girl the std which would just make my life even better. I really dont know what to do anymore thats why i wrote this cause i was hoping i might be able to understand my life and why i should live.

How cool would it be to have a "to do" list on here? I love the favorites feature, and agree with other posters that it needs to have a way to easily organize your favorites or search within your favorites. (I'm not sure about all it has, can't afford a pro membership yet) But, for those with pro, I could see how a to-do list would be sweet, where you can add an instructable to your "to-do" list and go back later and prioritize the items within it. Kinda like how Amazon has the priority wish lists.

Christmas is coming up, yay!!! On the 6th I ordered some shutter shades from www.shuttershadesonline.com My brother is a Kanye West fan. It has been over 2 weeks (almost 3 weeks on christmas) and they still havn't shown up. If they don't come, what do I tell my brother? I'm not too worried, because the thought was there, ordering something 3 weeks before christmas is good i think.

I received an email from Instructables (on 12/1) that I had a 'Best Answer'. It isn't showing on the topic concerned, or showing in my BA list: https://www.instructables.com/answers/My-brother-brakes-alot-of-things-when-he-is-mad-co/ (I did it!!! I put a link up!!). Who do I contact?-is it the robot thingy? ('He' has also added one year to my age - this is a criminal offence. Who do I beat to a pulp?).

I have a dying mac. More specifically, the moniter is dying. Unfortunatly the way its designed its apparently unfixable. Well instead of being wasteful and throwing it out any ideas to make it useful? I am saving for a new one and it'll take me a couple of months, until then I wanted to brain storm. I have the G5 http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.mp3-music-player.com/news/05_05/images/Apple_iMac_g5.jpg&imgrefurl;=http://www.mp3-music-player.com/news/05_05/Apple_g5.html&h;=342&w;=350&sz;=7&hl;=en&start;=2&um;=1&usg;=__hStptTAEa_XsrmyAgcrBe9RkqaI=&tbnid;=TbBXBgpVwRHQ8M:&tbnh;=117&tbnw;=120&prev;=/images%3Fq%3Dmac%2Bg5%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den

Not sure whether this is a contest idea, or just a philosophy, but the idea that we learn more from our mistakes rings true. Although it might be tediously long at times, I'd kinda like to see some -ibles that include the messy details of attempts that didn't quite work, what was learned, and how. Sometimes tangents xyz come out of an attempt to acheive abc. y'know- the happy accident. Examples?: I was annoyed with Apple for making a keyboard with light grey lettering on white keys. I like to dim the lights, and am not really a touch typist. So, I photocopied the keyboard, increased contrast, and printed this onto transparent sheet with adhesive backing (available at a photocopy place. Fed-ex, kinkos, i don't recall) Turns out that the ink on those copies is on the top surface of the plastic. After cutting out my qwerty stickers, I found that the ink wears off the surface. Not only that, but after peeling the stickers off, the goo remains. (sigh) So, if u use this technique, put clear tape over the clear photocopy. I just bought a microwave with grey on black keys. I may havta explain to the copyshop why I'm photocopying my microwave. ;) Any other examples?

Had an old laptop that had been rode hard and put away wet, given to me. It had a broken LCD, well I'm not one to just throw something away because it is broken, na, I visit "instructables.com" and find a use for it. It was kind of neat to examine the LCD assembly. Question is, there are so many neat things in there and I don't have the foggest idea of what I can do with them. Items such as: 1. The backlight assembly, aprox 1/16 dia floresent lamp about 10" long with controlor board. How can you determine the voltage, input and output points and such. Sure would be a shame to "blow" this thing using the "by guess and by golly" method to make it work. My guess is it would make a neat light for a picture or something like that. 2. Two sheets of simi-opeic plastic which appear to be horzontial and vertical orienated somethings. 3. A plastic sheet with at least 34,542 dots on it (that's where I quit counting). This alone would make a good "dot-to-dot" playing board for some "very little people". Need a better idea of what to use it for. Any ideas of something these items would be usefull for?

Well last night I was laying in bed and turned on the History channel. There was a show on about how the world could end and it scared the crap out of me. There was part of it that said stuff about an asteroid and how if there was a huge one that was going to hit us we would know the exact date. Then the people on the show were interviewing people about what they would do and a lady said that she had three kids back to back so ahe would have a margarita. I know this is a rather pessimistic/depressing forum but if that was to happen what would you do during your last days on earth? I don't know what I would do.

SO I was a thining to myself to the other day, "Gee there's a lot of people on Ibles, I wonder how many people know another Ibler outside of Ibles"... So I figuered this would be the quickest answer. I'm acquainted with Bumpus, KillerJackalope, Sunbanks, Skate6566, Labot2001, Keith-Kid, LedZeppie, and Firebert010 (mostly on Facebook). So who else communicates/knows/met extra-ibles?
