Hi - just like it says - anyone around from the UK, I live in Bedford (not that that matters too much). I am looking to get in touch with some like minded folks to chat, swap ideas etc. I am on Facebook and always around sometime in the day. Cheers for now.

Wikitag is a good game to play when you are bored and have some free time, rather it be at home, school, or the library. For those of you who never heard of Wikitag, here are the simple rules. Go to Wikipedia, and press the random button Click a link on the page, thus leading to a different page. The link must redirect you to another article on Wikipedia, not another website. Keep on clicking links until you arrive to your desired Article. To make the game more interesting, I like to start on one article in an attempt to go to another article that is completely different. (For example, Computer to Water.) So, is anyone interesting, because if enough people were, I am planning to start up a contest of Wikitag. Thanks.

Has anyone out there built a macquarium from an imac? I have an imac shell, but all the instructions for macquariums I can find are for the old Macintosh. There isn't even an instructable for those, so I'm going to set one up, but if anyone has done this before, I'd love to collaborate on an instructable for them.

Has anyone seen the movie Juno yet? lol I thought it was a nice little movie, but i found it over-hyped! There wasn't much of Michael Cera, ( which i found was a dissopointment ), and I didn't think it was a "comedy" more of a , little [touching] story. The burger phone was awsome lol. Anyways there's my rant.... How did you guys find it ?

Has anyone built or knw how to build a small efficient supercharger for a car. It has to be engine driven and not electric. I do not want complexities like electromagnetic clutch for the supercharger if its ok to have some boost at idle speeds. I am looking to supercharge an 800cc Suzuki engine for betr performance.

Something I have had fun with and opportunity, when the cache is large enough, and that is circulating tiny instructable bits at cache sites. Next, I want to attach a tracker tag so as to see how far the thing has traveled and where. Any others have an interest? Especially in the Arizona area where I have relocated to.

Hey there everyone! I was just going through some of my old stuff (trying to find loot for new projects), and I came across this gem. I got this for Christmas 25 years ago and I have held onto it for some reason. It wasn't until I started poking around this site and building again, that I realized why i have kept it. This it what got me interested in electronics.....well not really, I believe this was given to me to curb my random destruction of electronics around our house ;). So I want to say thank you to my dad, whom at the time saw an interest and tried to encourage it. So let me know if you remember this and if anyone still has one!

Why the tools section? Because it's a tool for me and not for you (joke joke of course it's a tool for you). I am trying out lockpicking since recently but I am having difficulties. First off, my pick sucks like hell. I can't just go out and buy a hacksaw blade and file it down accordingly. Second, I can't find a suitable torsion wrench for my handiwork. Third, I am trying out the single-pin technique, and that involves feeling all the individual pins to know which is the binding pin, which I can't feel in the first place because my pick is too thick for the lock. Any idea how to: Make a DIY pick Make a tension wrench without sacrificing my precious tools Feel those annoying to reach pins (Must not involve paper clips in any way imaginable) Yes, I am aware of raking/scrubbing and that all too useful snap gun. Which reminds me also how to make a snap gun without those window wiper inserts or paper clips (tried paper clips already). Heads up on my economy: I have no bench grinders, angle grinders, or any other power tools available. I either have to do it manually with hammers, pliers, or files, or I have to make my own tools, which usually fail miserably. I have stuff that's sitting around here like a tank of acetylene (I don't know if it still is pressurized or not, either way I don't want to know), some copper pipes (don't make me file those down), a few C-clamps, random soldering equipment, and limited access to the hardware store which my mom owns (limited being no power tools or major stuff I couldn't even use like sheet metal, fiberglass and other stuff). In case you're wondering, that door to my bedroom is somehow always locked and I couldn't get in, hence my motivation to pick my way into the room.

I'm starting to get into circuit bending, and what I think I'll do first is make a control panel, just cause I like things to be reusable, finished looking, and in the long run it'll cost less. I have on question, what's an ideal potentiometer value for general circuit bending, cause i found a good deal on 20k, but before spending money I would like to know if it's what i want.

A while ago I was going to start an electronic tutorial video podcast, but that took too much effort to make everything professional looking and well thought out. I want to retackle this project by having a video whenever i feel like it (at least 1 a week) answering questions that people ask or just want a video on because people generally learn better via video than reading some boring text :P Also, this podcast isn't going to be editted or anything, because all of that stuff just takes away all of the fun and just becomes boring. So, in short, I'm going to start an improvised video podcast answering people's questions to the best of my abilities. Anyone have any questions that they would like to have answered?

*Yes, I know, another question involving college and my future life.*I am kind of split between mechanical engineer and metallurgical engineer. They both have some great benefits and trades that I'd love to go into, but it's difficult deciding which would be better for me.I do aspire, no matter what field I go into, to weld and do other metalworking, although I don't just want to weld for people. I know it sounds weird, but I like to take the time to know about what I am working on, and not work at "face value", if you will.So, any mechanical or metallurgical engineers who want to try to sway me one way or another, please do so now. ;-) Thanks,Bran.

Does anybody know where to buy a small tank of neon for making your owns tubes and stuff (for like Tesla coils)? The only place I've found was a place in Europe, and I'm looking for something under 100$ (it was about 60 euros for a tank, which is like 140 dollars or something).
