accessible and accessibility technology and instructables?

I was just reading this post on liz henry's blog, and it occurred to me that there's not a good classification for accessibility-related instructables.Would giving it a category in instructables maybe inspire people to make more instructables of that type?

Can't access my unpublished Instructable

I went to work on an Instrutable tonight that I began earlier this week. I clicked on the unpublished tab and it tells me I don't have any unpublished instructables when the tab at the top indicates I have two (which is correct). When I clicked on the published tab I got the same message about not having any instructables even though a 50 is displayed in the tab. Something is amiss. I have lost a rare (for me) opportunity to make some progress on documenting a project. I'm bummed. Please fix.

Boosting broadband access from a usb modem?

How can I boost my broadband access from my usb modem?

When I am in town by towers I get full 4 bars of broadband, (speed is phenomenal!) Is there anyway to boost my signal from home? Can I "ghetto" rig an antenna wire from usb modem antenna to the tv antenna on top of house? Any help appreciated... I have the USB720 modem from Verizon, and a new Dell Inspiron 1520 loaded with Windows Vista. Attached is modem specs from Verizon wireless. Thanx, The Revelator P.S.

Portable change table

We are running in partnership with other agencies and the City of Toronto, Parks Forestry and Recreation an accessible swim program for people with physical disabilities. Many of our participants require that they change in a lying down position and thus require a "change table". At this point we are looking at two locations that require this. Challenges include storage as storage space is of high premium at the pools. It would have to be at a height that would be comfortable for the support staff. It should be wide enough to be able to turn a person on their side safely. Sturdy enough to be able to handle up to 350lbs safely. Should be folding (for storage), and have wheels that lock so it can be moved easily. We assume wood is the best material for this (or easiest to work with), but we are open to suggestions. It should also be long enough. We have not come with specific numbers (how many inches/cm wide or high e.g.). For this some of us involved in this program need to discuss the details. However, you may have some questions too, so if you let us know we can provide answers to your questions. A few years we purchased a portable massage table. However, it is not wide enough to accommodate some of our participants with being turned safely. About Tetra Tetra is a non-profit organization that recruits skilled volunteers to create customized assistive devices for people with physical disabilities.

My minecraft server quit working?

I currently have a PC dedicated to running a minecraft server.  Initially it worked just fine and could be accessed from anywhere, but recently that stopped.  It is now only accessible on a local scale.  Here is a quick rundown of the network: Wireless radio brings in signal which is then plugged into a router.  That router has one computer attached to it and then a long cable running to a second router.  That second router connects to everything else in the house such as printers three computers plus the dedicated server PC.  I am reasonable sure the problem doesn't reside within the secondary router because when connecting to the primary router with the ip 192.168.1.110:25565 the ports forward to the server just fine.  It is also possible to reach the server with the direct ip 10.0.0.11.  Using the port usually isn't necessary however I use it here to emphasize my problem.  I have also used my other computers in attempts to get the server to broadcast, however it has always failed.  I really need help because we were just about to go public with the server when this problem came up.  Do any of you have an idea of why I wouldn't be able to access the server above a local scale?

Cannot access PDF documents

Yo Membership people: Cannot access PDF documents. Click on PDF icon loops you back to login window, reinsert info loops all over again.  Can log into profile.  Profile showed I still a PRO member.  Pdf access worked until a few months ago when I changed banks and an automatic message sent to instructables caused an account cancelation. I sent a message explaining this and received a reply that I still had access until next year.  I really want the pdf for the Spooky Telsa Spirit Radio so I spent the money for another PRO Membership.  It now says I am a member until 2012!  So why cannot I access pdf files?  Also if I am a PRO Memeber how can I get rid of the ads? If pdf's are becoming a problem, will you make the instructables available via DVD disks or books like Volume 1? By the way how do I get a reply? The forum stuff stinks.  This is all frustrating since you have a darn good product! Thanks Tommyt

Hi3516 Access Root Error

First, I apologize for my english. I have a camera module with hi3516 SoC and have to access to hi3516 as root. But I couldn't that. If I begin to explain from start. I had an IPC, extracted it and now I have 3 modules (camera module, ir cut module and power / api module). I found 3 holes on camera module, these are GND, Rx and Tx. I soldered them with 3 female jumper cables and connect to ftdi module. I used micro USB to USB for ftdi-pc connection. Powered up camera module with 12V. In while, I download a program, what name is coolterm, to my pc. I opened coolterm and set baud rate to 115200 (hi3516 standard). Camera module booted up. I pressed a button when I see "Hit any key to stop autoboot: 1" text. Until here I followed an article and everything is fine. But that article says "You have to press enter after to type "root" to gain shell access" and I can't access shell when type "root". I got an error like "Unknown command 'root' - try 'help'".

Easier access to My Groups

Instructables has all these Groups and fun rewards for them like the Sponsorship. However,  I'm not one for playing Hunt the Interface for very long, and getting to the groups I have joined is not obvious or easy. There is a drop down selector for "You" in the top menu (You Page, Drafts, Inbox, Favorites, Customize...) if you select Favorites, you go to an info page about You, and a left column menu says Groups. this takes you to a page that has a BIG icon cropped from very wide group image - one per group. Other top level pages like Explore, Create Contests have much nicer presentation to find things. Perhaps you could do something similar with the Favorites, or at least cascading menu of items.

Recommendation for Contest: Accessibility and Assistive Technology

On behalf of Kiteman, NachoMahma, and myself, I would like to propose to the Instructables staff a contest theme of accessibility (in the sense of disability access, adaptive equipment and assistive technology, and the independent living movement). We'd like to see the contest include not just hardware (devices), but also software and online design (Web, PDF, etc.) which is fully accessible. Both specific designs and descriptions of the guidelines and tools to use should be included.For my own selfish benefit, I would like to have already published I'bles eligible for such a contest, but that's a policy decision for Instructables, not for me.

Access to "older" Orangeboard comments not available?

I've just discovered that the new profile interface provides only limited access to my Orangeboard.  The "first" page, with the most recent comments, comes up just fine, but there is no "next" link to pull up pages with older comments.

Not needing root access to mount drives?

I have been using sshfs (mounting SFTP servers) with MacFUSE on my Mac Mini (Snow Leopard). When I mount an SSH server, I can do it without having to be root, and i'm fine. My friend, on the other hand, tries to mount my SSH server, and it says access denied. He then runs the mount as root and it works fine. The issue with running as root though, makes it not accessible by Finder. He's an administrator on his computer (which is Snow Leopard on a MacBook (White)). How can he mount it as himself (his account)?

Bringing 21st Century accessibility into the 19th!

Courtesy of Adafruit Industries, comes this awesome steampunk wheelchair, using their Arduino-based Waveshield for sound effects.  The creator, Daniel Valdez, has a Web site (http://www.smeeon.com) with some issues, but he does have photos and video on Flickr.  It is fully functional, using an 1875 Victorian rocker mounted on a Permobil C300 power chair chassis.

How to make an RCON client for minecraft?? I want to send data to my Minecraft console remotely. Answered

Hey minecraft coders/people good with computers, I was wondering how to connect to my Minecraft server with a Remote Console/Controlled Console. I want to be able to send commands to the Console remotely (like from my phone or other computer). I dont know how to send/receive a command/commands to the Minecraft server, I can code everything else (like the text input and GUI). What I want to be able to do: 1. Get the console log sent from my server to my RCON client into a string (then I can print the data out into a GUI or another console) 2. Send commands that I type into my text box to the server via remote access. Thanks! If I was too vague, then please state it and I will try my best to elaborate.
