It's my birthday!

It's my birthday today, the 19th of may... I'm 18 and well have been around for around 18 years now. Even jackalopes have birthdays, granted people would find them to be bizarre and fear inducing events we do have them, along with horns. The guys in the chatroom will be glad of this, every time we were talking it's ended up with me launching in to brithday excitement, I didn't have much of one last year so... It's also coming up on my instructabirthday... I know it was absolutely childish to have a forum post but who cares...

REPORTING A BUG? BIRTHDAY

My Instructable Birthday!

Today, while looking at my profile, I realized that the date under "member since" said "Dec 17 2012". So today is my first Instructable birthday!!! What a year! My first year as an instructabler has been amazing. Who would have thought that a website could change someone's life? It did to me, and I really mean it. If it wasn't for this site's push, I doubt that I would have made so many things. I am the kind of person who wants to do a million things but is too lazy to even start one.  But here I am, looking at all the projects I made in just one year and I can hardly believe it. They are more than the amount of projects I made in 20 years! Creating is the best thing in the world and this is what I want to do in my life. Thank you Instructables for helping me realize that. But most of all, I want to say a BIG thank you to the Instructables HQ because this great community wouldn't exist without you. You are wonderful! And another big thank you to all my new instructables friends. Your support and kindness means so much to me! I had never seen such a friendly community anywhere else. I am so happy and proud to be part of it! All of you inspire me to make more and more. I look forward to spending another great year in this creative place with you! :) Linda

talking birthday card?

Does anyone know how to create the little sound thing inside a birthday card? When you open the card, the sound starts. When you close it, the sound stops. Can it be done with a voice recording?

Corwin's birthday in the tower

We celebrated Corwin's birthday in the tower at Squid Labs yesterday, and, while up there, fixed up the flag poles and hung a pirate flag. I think it's admirable that we had at least 3 months of a "professional" looking fascade before our true colors bled through. Or, maybe it was just laziness...More pictures here.

Happy Birthday, Spam!

It's quite appropriate, given the recent spate of spam threads, to find out that this weekend is the thirtieth anniversary of the first spam email:The first recognisable e-mail marketing message was sent on 3 May, 1978 to 400 people on behalf of DEC - a now-defunct computer-maker.The message was sent via Arpanet - the internet's forerunner - and won its sender much criticism from recipients..........The sender of the first junk e-mail message was Gary Thuerk and it was sent to advertise new additions to DEC's family of System-20 minicomputers.It invited the recipients, all of whom were on Arpanet and lived on the west coast of the US, to go to one of two presentations showing off the capabilities of the System-20.Reaction to the message was swift, with complaints reportedly coming from the US Defense Communications Agency, which oversaw Arpanet, and took Mr Thuerk's boss to task about it. So, how do you plan to celebrate?BBC storyAnother article, including the actual message

Happy Birthday, Mr Laser, Happy Birthday ... to ... you

OK, so it's hard to do an impression of Marylin Monroe in a topic title.Today, is, according to google, the anniversary of the invention of the laser. First demonstrated in 1960, it was known as a solution looking for a problem - everybody agreed it was clever, but it took some time before it saw a practical use. Now, every single "western" home has at least a handful of lasers, ad they have seen duty everywhere from art to war, via medicine and astronomy.Time to have a quick review of how this tricksie piece of hardware (especially the LED variety) has been treated by our members: Laser-based projects.Laser vortex from this InstructableGoogle's laser results

My birthday wish-list starts here

OK, first I want a hover car, but then I sort of run out of ideas.You get to my age, been independent for quite a while, there's not much stuff that I actually need. There's not even very much more that I want in life. But, people have started asking me what I want for my (say it calmly) fortieth birthday in just over three months.So, I've decided to have a shed-themed birthday list. Tools, materials, kits and what-not.Any suggestions that I can tell She Who Must Be Obeyed so that she can pretend to conspire with my family and arrange "surprise" presents?

How to Organise a Nerf gun war? Answered

So, soon it will be my 18th Birthday and instead of going out for a meal I have decided that I want to host a Nerf gun war of sorts. A while back me and some friends had a small nerf battle in my attic which was a success-ish. Really what I would like to do is to try to generate some game types as although firing at everyone is fun, I think rules need to be implemented.  I plan to invite around 15-20 people and host it at the local scout hut as I helped out with the Beaver section there for a time. Some ideas I've had are team deathmatch, capture the flag and zombies, if anyone has tried out anything like this any feedback on how it went, or ideas of rules would be great, Thanks in advance, Jack

How can I reprogram a talking birthday card to say something else?

My daughter gave me a talking birthday card. I thought it would be neat to reprogram it to say something else and give it back to her. The card has a little printed circuit board(1 1/8" X 1 1/8"), a small speaker ( 1 1/2" approx.), and a flat battery (like a watch).

SKUNKPUNK turns 15!

Ok, This is a bit of a crisis. My oldest son, Skunkpunk, turns 15 today! I turned 37 last week. I'm feeling OLD. I only realized that I was no longer a teenager a couple of years ago, and now I'm having to deal with being a parent of a teen. For me, 15 was a big year. Learning to drive, my first serious girlfriend, etc. I'm not ready to deal with Skunkpunk's teenage-roller-coaster. So anyway, If anyone has any advice for us we could use it. I need advice on how to parent a teen, and he needs advice on how to survive the teen years.

Don't Panic ! Nothing earth shattering here.....

Yesterday was my 53rd trip around the sun as a functioning human entity.  I hope to make a few more trips before my expiration date however;  in the event that I misread that particular portion of my "owner's manual",  I would like to once again express my great appreciation to the Original Instructables Gang, and all those I have known over the last several years. I have grown VERY fond of many of you, I have learned a lot &  I hope I have taught something to someone (I like to give back for what I have gained). I hope you ALL have a grand holiday season coming up, whether you celebrate Turkey Day,  X-mas,  the winter Solstice, Saturnalia, Hanukkah, Brumalia, Kwanza, Yule (added after being reminded by Lemonie), or  Dies Natalis Solis Invicti.

I think my head is going to explode....minor UPDATE: tis my birthday

This week is just too much for me...first the laptop,  and now my wife gave me an early (by one day) birthday present.   An LED headlamp.  I mean, it isn't much, but she is starting to tune into that gifts for me should be "useful" (I didn't need last year's  entire collection of Star Trek movies on  VHS, etc).    Because it is useful and thought was taken into account to get it, it is one more precious thing happening this week..... And since it is,  I got to go out to a very small, but quite quaint, Italian style Café.  The food is always wonderful, and so I enjoyed a nice Almond crusted Trout meal.   Kind of tops off the week so far :-)
