Well i was just wondering which do you think is better ask.com or google.com i know google is more popular but which one is overall better? ask.com:pros: Can see screen shot of website. shows pictures of the search item on the side. shows blogs on side. gives you suggestions. I thinks thats it now for google. google.com:pros: Most browsers have a little bar at the top for searching. Most popular searching site. Can't think of anymore.. ask.com:cons: Not very popular All i can think of. google.com:cons:doesn't have all that stuff that ask.com has. That seams to wrap it up. What do you think is better? Also if you have any thing to add on the pros and cons list post them here.

I am building a hose extension. I have a garden hose hooked up to the house supply, the hose runs to the back yard where it connects to PVC fittings. The rest of the system is a series of sprinklers too complex to explain here. My question is, should I use glue or plummers tape to make each connection water tight? Thanks!

Hey, I'm trying to figure out which computer I should buy. One is an HP Pavilion HPE H8 with an Intel i7 third generation quad core at 3.4Ghz. The other has an AMD FX100 Hex core processor at 3.5Ghz. It sounds like the AMD is the winner, but I just want to be sure. I plan on running games such as Battlefield 3, Crysis 2, Saints Row 3, Medal of Honor, Need for Speed World, and about 7 or 8 other smaller games. The computer with the AMD processor has 8GB RAM and the i7 processor has 10GB, both have 1TB sata 7200rpm HDD. Which is faster? Which will run best?

This is my idea: https://www.instructables.com/id/Cigar-bo... This is the other idea: https://www.instructables.com/id/False-Bo... The second idea was a finalist in a contest on Instructables. I was also in the contest with the first idea. I was wondering exactly how this was a finalist over mine? My idea was the same thing, but improved. It was even entered before his! My idea featured some of the things that people commented as an improvement in his instructable. The only thing I can think of is maybe the simplicity of design? Mine has more to it than just a secret box though, and it was far more concealed.

Hey everybody!As you know, the instructable chatroom we always use is getting slower and slower as the comments builds up... :(Until gmjhowe made another faster, chatroom here!It is called The Super Uber Mega Instructables Chatroom. Enjoy!Also its the exact same chatroom as on the ibles website, so anyone in the uber version can talk to people in the normal version (on the ibles website).I am not trying to spam here, the reason I am doing this is because a lot of users are complains that the old chatroom is getting slower...

hello, i am starting up an online store, and am already starting to sell some of my pyrotechnic supplies, such as manganese dioxide and charcoal, but i just realised, on ebay (my online store is not an ebay store), people are only ever selling pine charcoal or willow charcoal! which doesnt make much sense since is a super fine powder and is made up of carbon. i need to know what makes these so much different from regular random tree charcoal that comes from just anywhere, and, is the charcoal i have now, which is of unknown origin, but mostly of from pine-like trees in the tropics, the same? i need to know if it makes any difference since i dont want angry customers demanding refunds because it isnt as good as other charcoal!
Question by oldmanbeefjerky | last reply
Hey! I just want to suggest that the instructables team adds a "read later" (or something similar like "want to do") button that bookmarks an instructable you're interested so you can check it out later because sometimes you want to build a project and don't have the materials on hand,so with a read later button you can come back to the instructable later without a lot of searching for the exact one you were planning on doing. Not sure if this is in the right place so please redirect if it isn't. Thanks!

It would be fairer to sort the entries from least views at the beginning, to most views at the end. Now, it's the opposite. And visitors are too lazy to browse to the last page of the contest, which can be seen in the views counts: Right now in the Humana Health by Design Contest, the last entry has 43 views, which is only 0.1% of the views the one at the beginning has: 32,171. This means that whether an entry is going to be a finalist, only depends on little differences in views at the beginning of the contest. The ones that are just a little in the majority get almost all views, the ones who were just a little in the minority get much less views, so the differences get bigger and bigger during voting time. And the amount of votes of course depends on the amount of views. It would be fairer if all entries get about as much viewers, so the same chances. This can easily be done by sorting them in the opposite order, so they switch positions all the time.

My brother make videos and we have an iMac, lets just say it is not substantial for his needs. Now just to get the point across we came up with a fair MAC-Pro, it has an SSD for faster boot and render, then a 1 tb drive for storage, a 4 core cpu, two radion hd whatevers, two monitors and no other special add-ons, price = 6,992.00 USD. Now we came up with a massive decked out PC based substantially off of Dream Machine 2011. It has an SSD, an intel i7 3.4 ghz (two more than the mac and 200 dollars less) a 3 tb massive kick ass hard drive which cost less than the one tb, 8 gb of ram for 50 dollars, the mac was well over 300. The biggest newest graphics card NVIDIA has the 590 costing about 750 dollars. Two 27" monitors a decked out sound system, a RAT 5 Mouse, a generic keyboard, v8 cpu cooler, fair case from cooler master, 1000w power supply, Blue Ray dual write disk drive thing, and the dream machine mobo. It came in at 2950 dollars and every price for parts was rounded up to the nearest 5 dollars. Mac = about 7000 PC = about 3000 Mac = less storage, less speed, less performance PC = KICK ASS Mac = is it worth it just to do videos PC = what is a good PC movie aplication/program

A Million Ways to Skin a Cat. I have to say that one of my favorite places in the web is https://www.instructables.com. Waking up to that email on thursday mornings, the https://www.instructables.com news letter makes me happy im such a geek. I love to read the peoples reviews and each individual point of view... those comments sometimes really get me going.... I have done a few DIY form this site but I guess I am not a forum/comment guy. (to be fair this is my first post on a forum since 2008) And now... to the point . I invite https://www.instructables.com to help us geeks challenge each other while improving the site with a simple new feature. A Million Ways to Skin a Cat Basically get from "step a" to "step b" you an follow different approaches. A step or a process in an "instructable" may be improved or explained in any other way. This feature enables users to set there creations free and make all the community share there ways and get to the optimization of projects. Think of the search for a new project starting from a proces you already know. For example: using a DREMEL tool on wood. You could se many instructables containing this keywords, but what if you could see the process of carving wood, explained in detail on many ways, by many users. The user will share his method, and experience or simply pitch in with some new info or detail he might have encounter or needed during the process. On the GUI I imagine below the next step lower right button a button that says something like "MORE" or "A.A. (another approach"). This button coul also link to another instructable that has a detail guide on how to do the process at hand. Instructables will start to branch out and interconnect to form an organic and hands on detail database. Any ways thats my humble idea. I wish it helps this site to grow and keep helping people. P.S. Maybe you have another way, who knows if out there are one million more ways...

I am hoping this will soon become a forum where everyone can come to see lists of instructables that they can easily do around the house. This is not however an extra way to promote your unrelated ible. If you truly believe that your project helped the environment with then Zeroth law applies: Thou Shalt Post. Also please dont refrain from commenting on peoples instructables from here so that people know what is good/easy/difficult/effective ect. I will start by posting my own. Its not very good but it is very easy and effective and i still use mine without damage. My second instructable.

Hello. I got a Wireless Mouse that still working fine.The signal between the Mouse and its receiver is not so great, about half meter, and it stop responding. So I took apart the Mouse and its Receiver. The antenna of the Mouse is kind of steal (I think but its color) and the one of the receiver is coil of very thing copper about 3/4 turns around a piece of plastic. So as said I would like to increase the signal between both, for better rang. What I have found around the best material is copper, so here is my issue. Is it better to modify the antenna of the Mouse or its receiver?? Should I rather use thicker Copper Wire and do few spinning around a piece of plastic, or use a thinner Copper Wire and do a lot of spin around a piece of plastic. So what better for a strong signal: - thicker wire and less spinning or - thinner Wire and more spinningThanx for those that would give a some advise/recommendations. I am will upload pictures later when possible. PS: I manage to add to it a Switch to turn off the mouse to extend battery Life.

I caught this on BBC Radio 4: The story goes, that grandmother had an insight that the sisters would become a big band. So father tried to make it happen. 5 years of practicing without musical-influences one album (1000 copies), and embarrassing performances. I've been really getting into what I can find, because it's not music as we know it... take out doing something that you want to do (they didn't) and trying to sell records, knowing what music is etc... L Shaggs are now seen as a groundbreaking outsider music group, receiving praise from mainstream artists such as Kurt Cobain and also from Frank Zappa after he called the Shaggs "better than the Beatles".

Currently there is no way to filter for questions that have not been commented on. I really enjoy answering peoples questions, but when i have to dig to find any that actually need answered it is discouraging. I propose another option in the current ones for ones with no answers submitted currently the unanswered tab shows all questions that have comments trying to answer but the user hasnt submitted it as an answer. It may also help to have inactive questions auto set to answered or inactive.

Wouldn't it be great if the mobile app could do all that you can do via a PC or Mac? For example use the forums....or post a message into a selected forum. I think it would be good if the mobile app displayed all the contests and challenges instead of missing some out. I am sure that once upon a time I could use the mobile browser to at least view the main site that way. Now they cleverly detect that I am in mobile device and do not display the same content. Diesanyone else want the mobile experience to match the desktop experience?

What does every body think about different background colors for picture taking? I made up a black one but I'm thinking about a white / cream one as well. Pictures are of a bottle with a jug knot tied (great instructable, look it up) while the other is from jessyratfink's Instructable "Sew a Where Things are Hat + Pattern!" with a white backdrop. What do you prefer? By the way, the black back drop is mine, I have it hung up on a curtain rod with a stool in front with the cloth draping over, then with the item placed on top. Still new at photography but I think it's an ok picture.
