Giftie Bits Questionnaire

My skills include: * Sewing; including embroidery, quilting, & a bit of fabric painting; * Cooking, baking, & some canning; * Gardening, especially container gardening; * Composting in worm bins (including making the bins); * Most kinds of science-ey stuff (except for electronics); * Some technical drawing skills, both CAD and pencil-&-paper; * Some wood-, plastic- or metalworking, using mostly just simple hand tools; * Lots of artsy-craftsy type stuff. What I'd like to make for someone: A custom messenger bag (or some other fabric accessory)? Super-special cookies or other mailable food item? Maybe a simple hand-bound book? ...You name it; and - as long as it doesn't call for soldering skills or a serious workshop set-up - I'll probably try it. :) I'd be willing to make this size gift package for someone (choose all that apply):  Small, Medium or Large. I'd be willing to receive a smaller or larger size gift package from someone than the one I make for someone else: I'd rather exchange same-sized gift packages. What I like: Almost anything that's purple. Scrolling vine patterns. Ethnic and/or Folk art. Stuff based on Asian, especially Japanese, art & traditions. Geeky science & geeky sci-fi stuff. Coffee. Useful gadgets and gizmos. Containers & stuff for keeping other stuff in. What I don't like: Things that aren't useful, amusing, or aesthetically pleasing. Things made out of trash solely to keep said trash of the waste stream. It's just my own personal preference, but steampunk doesn't really float my boat. Goth doesn't either. And don't tell Robot, but yellow and orange just aren't my favorite colors. I absolutely can't have (due to allergies, pets, etc): Anything involving latex rubber (I'm *way* allergic). Type of thing I'd love to receive: Maybe something electronic-ey, since that's not one of my skills. Or else   Almost anything. :) Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country? Definitely - that would be so cool. Confirm that you are at least 18 years old or, if not, that you have the approval of a parent or guardian: I am way the heck over 18 years old. (But my mother still generally approves of me. :)

Questionnaire - Help Needed please

**First of sorry if this is not the correct forum to post this in** **Bit of background, I'm Fergal from Ireland, 22, and currently studying Communications in Creative Multimedia and have a request if any of you would kindly help me** I'm doing a Virtual Ethnography assignment for a module on my course titled' User Theories' and thought Instructables would be a great online community to research as I've had the enjoyment of using it a few times for college projects. Side bar: A Virtual Ethnography is the study of people interacting in an online community. I want to look at why people give up their free time and spend a lot of time and effort to help others with tutorials. I want to also explore hierarchy within the community and see if there is any influential or highly regarded people within the community. Also just general observation of the Instructables community. So if you have time i would appreciate it immensely if you could fill in the short questionnaire below. Would really help me out a lot thanks. Look forward to hearing back from you all. Thanks!! 1 – What is your age, gender, location? 2 - How often do you visit the forum / post on the forum? 3 - How often do you browse Instructables? 4 - Do you feel the Instructables forum offers a sense of community? How does it differ to a offline Instructables community if any? 5 - Do you find it easier to communicate and voice your opinions online on the forum, than offline face to face? 6 - Does being part of the Instructables forum make you feel a sense of importance ? 7 – Have you ever met anyone from Instructables offline face to face ? [If so elaborate please, how? when? Still talk?] 8 - Do you think there's a downside to communicating online rather than just offline? 9 – What do you think is the best aspect of communicating in the Instructables forum? 10 – Do you communicate with any Instructables members on facebook/twitter or any other messenger? If so how many, how often, in depth conversations or small talk? 11 – How many projects have you made successfully from Instructables 12 – Have you ever subsequently made money from following a instructable and selling on what you made? [examples please/ elaborate] If any questions dont apply to you, please even just try answer as any feedback / knowledge about the online community will help me greatly!! If you think of anything else that is not mentioned and that would help me, i would also be grateful for this info. Thanks again, Fergal McCabe @Fergal_McCabe D00125983[at]student[dot]dkit[dot]ie​

Nose deforestation ......

.Hi !As you probably noticed, the older we become, and the hairier becomes our nose .......Unibrow or not, ugly or not, male or female, young or old, some people really seems not to care about how dense and "growing out" is the rainforest they harbour in their nostrils ... Lucky they are if they don't care !Because (IMHO) when you care about it, struggling with Mother Nature becomes one of the most boring and depressing task ... In other words : If you have a great (permanent ?) solution : share it !!Optional questionnaire :1) do you care about the hairs in your nose ? and why ?2) what technique do you use to get rid of them ?3) how often ?4) for what result ? (do you try to deforest them all, or do you only remove the most visible trees ?)5) do you recommend your technique ?6) do you care about unibrow ?7) do you care about hairy ears ?

OPEN DESIGN RESEARCH

ANSWER: opendesign@gmx.de Dear Sir or Madam, dear creative worker, dear developer and designer In consideration of growing interest in open development processes and their spreading, we are trying to get to the bottom of the »open design« phenomenon. In the course of our investigations we are very much interested in your opinion. The survey consists of a few questions related to hierarchy in open projects. At the end of our observation there will be a theoretical study, which all participants may receive a digital copy of, if so desired. (Just note that the final work will be written in German) First we would like you to answer eight questions according to a given scale. You are free to add a short comment to each answer. Finally there are two questions, which allow for a more detailed answer. 1. Does "Open Design" have a future? (No) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 (Yes) Comment: 2. Is there a danger of losing individuality due to the openness of a project? (No) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 (Yes) Comment: 3. Does the loss of individuality imply a decrease in quality? (No) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 (Yes) Comment: 4. Which hierarchic structures exist in your project? In which relation are the numbers of initiators and participants? (Initiators) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 (Participants) Comment: 5. Who has the power to decide which changes to implement? (Initiators) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 (Participants) Comment: 6. Open processes may result in a vast variety of designs. What kind of rules & restrictions are set that may influence individual freedom in order to maintain a high level of quality? What is your ideal conception? (Many restrictions) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 (Much freedom) Comment: 7. How much expertise is needed to participate in an "open design"- project? (Expert) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 (Amateur) Comment: 8. Are there moments when it depresses you that open design projects cannot easily be closed again? What kind of moments are this and why do you still stick to open projects? (No) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 (Yes) Comment: 9. How are complex assignments broken down to many individual tasks and how are these tasks distributed among the participants? Where are the limits of each competency? Comment: 10. To what extent do you understand yourself as the actual developer of a product, that you are working on together? Which kind of copyright protection is used? Comment: In case you would like to dig deeper in this topic, we also offer a more comprehensive questionnaire. Many thanks and kind Regards, Manuel Milde und Sebastian Piatza (Faculty of Design - University of Applied Sciences Dresden)

John Cleese's "Letter To America"

Forwarded along by an Aussie. Enjoy.Dear Citizens of America,In view of your failure to elect a competent President and thus to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective immediately. Her Sovereign Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths and other territories (except Kansas, which she does not fancy), as from Monday next.Your new prime minister, Gordon Brown, will appoint a governor for America without the need for further elections. Congress and the Senate will be disbanded. A questionnaire may be circulated next year to determine whether any of you noticed.To aid in the transition to a British Crown Dependency, the following rules are introduced with immediate effect:1. You should look up "revocation" in the Oxford English Dictionary. Then look up "aluminium," and check the pronunciation guide. You will be amazed at just how wrongly you have been pronouncing it.2. The letter "U" will be reinstated in words such as "colour", "favour" and "neighbour." Likewise, you will learn to spell "doughnut" without skipping half the letters, and the suffix "-ize" will be replaced by the suffix "-ise."3. You will learn that the suffix "burgh" is pronounced "burra"; you may elect to spell Pittsburgh as "Pittsberg" if you find you simply can't cope with correct pronunciation.4. Generally, you will be expected to raise your vocabulary to acceptable levels (look up "vocabulary"). Using the same twenty-seven words interspersed with filler noises such as "like" and "you know" is an unacceptable and inefficient form of communication.5. There is no such thing as "US English." We will let Microsoft know on your behalf. The Microsoft spell-checker will be adjusted to take account of the reinstated letter "u" and the elimination of "-ize."6. You will relearn your original national anthem, "God Save The Queen," but only after fully carrying out Task #1 (see above).7. July 4th will no longer be celebrated as a holiday. November 2nd willbe a new national holiday, but to be celebrated only in England. It will be called "Come-Uppance Day." 8. You will learn to resolve personal issues without using guns, lawyers or therapists. The fact that you need so many lawyers and therapists shows that you're not adult enough to be independent. Guns should only be handled by adults. If you're not adult enough to sort things out without suing someone or speaking to a therapist then you're not grown up enough to handle a gun.9. Therefore, you will no longer be allowed to own or carry anything more dangerous than a vegetable peeler. A permit will be required if you wish to carry a vegetable peeler in public.10. All American cars are hereby banned. They are crap and this is for your own good. When we show you German cars, you will understand what we mean.11. All intersections will be replaced with roundabouts, and you will start driving on the left with immediate effect. At the same time, you will go metric immediately and without the benefit of conversion tables. Both roundabouts and metrification will help you understand the British sense of humour.12. The Former USA will adopt UK prices on petrol (which you have been calling "gasoline") - roughly $8/US per gallon. Get used to it.13. You will learn to make real chips. Those things you call french fries are not real chips, and those things you insist on calling potato chips are properly called "crisps." Real chips are thick cut, fried in animal fat, and dressed not with catsup but with malt vinegar.14. Waiters and waitresses will be trained to be more aggressive with customers.15. The cold tasteless stuff you insist on calling beer is not actually beer at all. Henceforth, only proper British Bitter will be referred to as "beer," and European brews of known and accepted provenance will be referred to as "Lager." American brands will be referred to as "Near-Frozen Gnat's Urine," so that all can be sold without risk of further confusion.16. Hollywood will be required occasionally to cast English actors as good guys. Hollywood will also be required to cast English actors as English characters. Watching Andie MacDowell attempt English dialogue in "Four Weddings and a Funeral" was an experience akin to having one's ear removed with a cheese grater.17. You will cease playing American "football." There is only one kind of proper football; you call it "soccer." Those of you brave enough, in time, will be allowed to play rugby (which has some similarities to American "football," but does not involve stopping for a rest every twenty seconds or wearing full kevlar body armour like a bunch of Jessies - English slang for "Big Girls Blouse").18. Further, you will stop playing baseball. It is not reasonable to host an event called the "World Series" for a game which is not played outside of America. Since only 2.1% of you are aware that there is a world beyond your borders, your error is understandable and forgiven.19. You must tell us who killed JFK. It's been driving us mad.20. An internal revenue agent (i.e. tax collector) from Her Majesty's Government will be with you shortly to ensure the acquisition of all monies due, backdated to 1776.Thank you for your co-operation.John CleeseLink
