What can I use as a speaker for my Ipod?

I need a pretty loud speaker for my I-pod classic. As you probably noticed, money is tight lately and I do not have 30 dollars to spend on a special I-pod speaker. It does not need to be a radio, clock, etc. All I want is a speaker. Does anyone know if I could use a computer speaker or something else? Thanks!

The Antibug report - login/posting issues with I.E.

Not sure if "you" fixed/changed something, or if i did (i doubt it was me as i've not changed anything on my system anytime recently). but the posting/logging in issue that i've been complaining about for a while now seems to have decided to leave me alone (mostly) i can now visit the site in I.E. 8, log in to view all steps on an ible AND i can comment on ibles and forum posts from I.E. (used to have to use firefox for any of the commenting) still can't stay logged in between visits (can't close I.E. and then come back and still be logged in) but that's not as big of an issue

I'm back everybody!

Hi everyone, I'm back from the TSA national competition in Orlando Florida! I got a 2nd place trophy in a challenge called electrical applications, which is basically electronic tests and circuits and what not. I personally think the competition was poorly planned and some of the questions were trick questions (although they wouldn't seem trick to a more ignorant person, for example: Hooking a 9volt battery in parallel with an existing 9volt battery in a circuit will: a) decrease current in the circuit b) increase the current in the circuit c) double the current in the circuit d) the current in the circuit will stay the same The answer could be B,C, or D, yet only one can be the right one. 2nd best in the nation, wooo here's a pic of my trophy:

Make it easier to edit

So, it would be super sweet to have a little "edit" link next to each step, to jump right to editing that step and save a couple of page loads, rather than just that one giant edit button. Or an all-step editor, which would be super bandwidth hoggy but also cool. -Star, from the UK, through a super-tiny intertube.
