Pop-up tents

Has anyone ever made or taken apart a pop-up tent or hamper or whatnot? I really would like to know what kind of wire they use and how they do it. I think it would make for some interesting and versatile set pieces.I'm thinking along the lines of this type of thing.

Get rid of the SIGN UP pop-up

Nowadays many sites do this very horrible thing that is really annoying to the point I just want to throw my monitor out the window or beat the crap out of my monitor with my keyboard over and over. When you go to a site, like this one, you are reading the article, instructable, watching a video (or whatever), and few seconds to 2 mins later, the screen dims and a pop-up comes out saying "do you want to sign up?" Other sites might say "do you want to subscribe?" "Click "like" if you like this article" This is one of those things that's really fking annoying. If people want to sign up, they can click on it in the top right corner. The sheer amount of sites that do this, that forces you to read their pop-up, making you close it everytime. The only thing I am interested in is the instructable/artcle I was currently reading... This site would be decent if you removed it.

Unwanted pop-ups and downloads

Last December 24, 2009, I clicked a link in the Instructables newletter.  An alert message box popped up that my computer had malware on it and needed an immediate check for viruses.  It offered a free scan of my computer.  I clicked OK, the scan detected trojans, and offered to sell me trojan removal software, which I declined to purchase.   I spent a lot of time and effort running scans downloading malware removal programs, uninstalling/reinstalling my security program and finally got the trojans removed.  I also learned about pop-ups that install the malware on pc's when the pop-up is clicked on. I decided to unsubscibe from the Instructables newsletter, but later relented unwilling to put the blame for the trojans on Instructables. Two days ago, I was copying a recipe from Instructables website.  When I clicked on Step 7, a pop-up message from the website appeared that my computer had signs of malware and offered to do a free scan.  Being now cautious,  I ran a scan from my securtiy that dectected no malware.  I clicked "Cancel" on the pop-up to get rid of the message, then did another scan with Malwarebytes.  Bam! Infected!  I got the security disablers off my computer and then unsubscribed from Instructables newsletter. During the time I was on Instructables website, websites came up without me clicking (while I was trying to copy the recipe.  Maybe my cursor randomly passed over an ad, then it came up.  I'm thinking the pop-up message came up the same way.  I read on McAfee SiteAdvisor comments that this happened to others:  a malicious download. Instructables could examine the ads submitted and the instructions submitted for malware.  Why aren't they doing that?  Why is Instructables website dangerous for malicious downloads?

Step one keeps popping up!!!!!!

Now, for WHATEVER reason, step one shows up in EVERY STEP YOU CLICK ON!!!!!!!!!!!  Now that is the most useless and pointless thing I have ever seen on this site.  I mean, WHY????  If you need to see step one again, just click on it!!!!!  The step one thing gets in the way, and it is really distracting!

the new "mouse over" "stats" pop-up will pop under an embedded video

To test: Find a comment with an embedded video attached. mouse over the commenter's name watch the pop-up be obscured by the video. (Ubuntu w/ Firefox 3.0.19) I saw this a few weeks ago, but have not retested since then because embedded vids in comments are rare. If I see it again, I'll try for a screen shot unless it's a known issue by the staff.

is there a way to make a pop-up cd rack that uses 12v and a motor? Answered

I want to build a few pop-up parts for my pc station. One of them being a CD rack that stacks the CD's vertially and can, at a push of a button, raise itself up through the hole in my pc station, and back down again (see the pop-up kitchen spice rack). I know this is probably achievable given that there are many motors that will run on 12v, but i cannot work out how it would lift or how it would stop at the maximum height before it comes up against the edge of the desk etc.

Pop Book with lighted popup

My daughter has a project for her 8th grade Chemistry class that involves preparing a picture book on an element that is designed for younger elementary school students.  Her element is NEON.  She'd like to make a popup book, with the title page having a popup of the word NEON that will light up... we were thinking maybe making individual letters for the word NEON, and having them popup -- and perhaps having a light source behind the letters with cutouts in the letters themselves to allow the light to show through... Any ideas on how to accomplish this (easily)?  She will be doing the work HERSELF, with only advice from mom, so it needs to be as simple as possible. Thanks!

posting photos - how to get the nice pop-up?

Hello, I was wondering if there is a way to make body photo "pop out" like the main photos of a step.  Some of my image details could be better viewed using the pop-up, so I put them in the beginning section.  But the photos would fit better embedded in the flow of the instructions.  But images in embedded in the body don't have the pop-up function...they are the size they show up as on the page. Here's an example of what I mean: https://www.instructables.com/id/Uber-Home-Automation/step3/ Just wondering about this. Thanks!

Stopping an oxyacetylene weld from popping? Answered

I'm pretty sure that anyone who has oxyacytelene welded has had a weld "pop" when they jab the rod into it or overheat the molten metal. I've been doing some oxyacetylene welding and I'm working on my lap joints. When I was simply laying a straight line on weld across a plate I never made the weld "pop." Now every time I pick up a torch and try a lap joint it goes "POP!" and flings molten metal everywhere. What am I doing wrong? Can anyone shed some light on my problem? Any help is much appreciated!

When Toast Flies

It is not often that I find something so useless so awesome. Freddie Yauner's toaster pops your toasted bread way up into the air with high-pressure carbon dioxide. He is going to try to break his own world record of the highest toaster pop, which currently stands merely at the height of his ceiling. An added bonus of this: if he pops it to the right height, he may be able to avoid the curse of the toast always falling butter-side down.Link

How do I get rid of this "pop" at the beginning of my MP3 in Audacity? Answered

So, I've recorded this sound from my PSP using a stereo cable and Audacity. I cut the audio to the certain length that I want it and go to "file" and "export as MP3". When I open up the MP3 to listen to it it has this pop in audio at the beginning. (The picture is the "pop" in audio). So, I open up the MP3 I just exported and cut out the "pop" and export a new one. But, it just does it again. Any ideas what is going on?
