Ahh.... Mountain Dew and Breaking Benjamin at 9:56 in the morning

So, I am so comfortable right now. I'm drinking Mountain Dew and listening to Breaking Benjamin at 9:57 in the morning. It's very relaxing. What makes you feel awesome? It can be a mix of 2 things or just one thing.

Dell inspiron 1800 wont boot porperly

AHH this is like the 5th time my friend asked me too fix his WINDOWS computer... windows users just don't get it.... But anyways when the machine shows its startup screen, the loading bar fills and it goes to a gray screen asking for a password. he says he hasn't set a password. I am positive I cant blame this on windows though. I am not on dells side either though. Anybody got any ideas ?

would you guys like to have an auction site specially for us?

By this i don't mean a horrible ebay store, just a separate site. One where us geeks, art and green freaks can auction off or sell the stuff we make or own. Ya know like ebay used to be....ahh good times...good times. But seriously, would you? Because i have a domain i paid 3yrs in advance only to find out that they don't allow...adult themes....some jerk waits until a few of us run a site for a couple of weeks, then decide to update the new TOS(POS really) but auctions and stores are completely ok. so come in and let me know, should i start something like this or not? I have a template started so far. just need the green light to go. :)

RFID LED Light Cubes

Hi! Long time follower of DIY projects. I had never considered actually trying any of the projects I had seen before, until I came upon the November 2011 issue  of Popular Science and saw the RFID LED Light Cubes. I think the idea is just So Cool and really want to try it as my first DIY project. Of course (ahh Irony, you cruel mistress!) that seems to be one of very few projects whose full instructions were never released. I'm pretty bummed out about this and even tweeted Vin Marshall (the OP) about it. He responded that he didn't think that there were any plans to release instructions for that project which is just extremely disappointing. I mean... someone Made it for the issue... how hard could it be to write up a set of instructions? I have the ingredients, but not the recipe, it's like asking me to make a souffle if all I know is that it has Eggs, Milk, Flour, Butter, and Cheese. If the idea of this DIY was to interest new amateurs in DIY projects, then they succeeded! Since November of last year, I've been trying to get some help making this awesome concept, but I just don't have the know-how. I'm begging you, Please help me figure this one out :( Help me make my first souffle. Here is a link to a 2 page PDF of the original PopSci article (and all the info I have on this project) https://www.dropbox.com/s/bds0pe73godn45m/RFID%20LED%20LIGHT%20CUBES.pdf Sincerely (and very hopefully!), Czarr

Change instructables header from orange! Update 4

(Made new topic because old one was getting crowded and ugly)Yes, folks, the moment we've all been waiting for...you can customize the header at long last!For years the instructables header has been full of orangey goodness. Maybe a little too much orangey goodness. When I first saw the site, I thought, "Huh. It's February. A little early for halloween...". No lie. When I realized it's like this all the time, I realized something had to be done. I finally got around to sitting down and once and for all giving full control of the header to the user. Now, don't get me wrong. I love orange. I think the admins did a great job picking colors, I'm not trying to hate on them. But let's face it, sometimes change is good.With these handy-dandy styles, you simply install stylish, load them, and presto! No more header screaming ORANGE ORANGE ORANGE and pounding you over the head with shocking vibrant hues until you die. No more co-workers saying "are you on instructables again?! " Yes folks, the header is in your control! Yellow! Green! Invisible! Lots more! Links are all black, to avoid conflict with buttons and such. Link colors (and header color) are easily edited. To install, Firefox users can just install this addon and load the ClearHeader style. However, that's not the only way to install. Firefox users can use greasemonkey if you want. Opera users, IE 7 (ptooie!) can load the style as a userscript. It's cross browser!Many thanks to Gmjhowe for his generous contribution of mad photoshop skillz. New! Red: http://userstyles.org/styles/21622Blue: http://userstyles.org/styles/14765 Invisible: http://userstyles.org/styles/15029Yellow: http://userstyles.org/styles/15107Green: http://userstyles.org/styles/14804Eric's shoes Purple taken from his famous shoes instructable!: http://userstyles.org/styles/15032Gray: http://userstyles.org/styles/15030New! Black: http://userstyles.org/styles/21620Kiteman: http://userstyles.org/styles/15039Ewilhelm: http://userstyles.org/styles/15099Edit, tweak and post these to your heart's content. If you want THE WHOLE ENTIRE HEADER gone, not just graphics - you want EVERYTHING GONE from that bad boy, see here: https://www.instructables.com/community/Remove-the-entire-instructables-header-NOT-just/If you have questions, problems, etc, please post them here or PM me and we'll get it worked out.Many, many thanks to Yokozuna for providing me a handlogo file so I didn't have to color them in pixel by pixel like I was earlier, or mooch off gmjhowe like I did after that. :-DUPDATE: I have made substantial changes to all scripts. Please update your old versions. Due to name changes, some of them may not even update properly. If this happens, please uninstall any previously installed versions and install the new ones.Changelog:* Fixed bug in Blue header causing header to appear in all websites, not just instructables* Added the hand logo to Blue header * Marked obsolete versions of scripts* Changed all titles to reflect the application to instructables* Changed all descriptions to reflect the application to instructables* Made Black header* Made Red header* Gave all headers (except black) hand with proper white outlineFAQ:Q: I installed one header, then another one. Now I see the first one that I installed flash briefly before it goes to the current one. Now what?A: Make sure you disable all header scripts except for the one you are currently using.Q: Why are there CSS color codes at the top? That's extraneous code! You're dumb!A: Actually, I left it there on purpose, to make it nice and easy to refer to should you wish to change the link colors. Q: It's not working! Ahh!A: Make sure you have greasemonkey/stylish and the script itself enabled. If you continue to have issues, uninstall and reinstall.Q: I want to make my own. How do I do this?A: How to change the scripts:To change link colors, open the script and go to the sectionlinks */a {color: #000 !important; and change from #000 to whatever color you wish. To make custom-color scripts, download this file: . Edit it to whatever color you wish. Upload the file to an image hosting site such as tinypic or picoodle. Next, go to the first place where you see a url like (www.foo.jpg) and replace the url with the url of your uploaded picture.To make avatar headers, upload the appropriate file to an image hosting site and change as above. Then, go to the second url location and delete the url. Please upload any cool new scripts you make so others can enjoy them! If I like them I'll link them up here, too. ;)As always, please post bug reports and color requests in the comments.
