Has anyone made the Gigantic Bubble Machine in Vol. 28 of MAKE magazine? I have made that circuitry 25 times and can't get it right. Can anyone help? Thanks?

I'd like to know how to create a harmless virus that will block anyone from entering a certain website. But I'd like to be able to remove the virus after a period of time. Or at least do something to get revenge, harmless, but still revenge. They really ticked me off. I'm sure you've all been there. Any help would be great.

RANDOFO has exhaustion, NACHO has drowned, and GMJHOWE has dysentery (and measles. And cholera. Idk why it has a hate on for him, but it sure does...)>_<When I first saw that Nacho and Kiteman had died, I started to freak, then remembered it was just a cruddy little simulation.I gotta stop naming my trail buddies after people I know. It's too traumatic.You remember the ORIGINAL Oregon Trail, yes? Not the sissy versions with their fancy-pants "gui"s and "icons" - I mean the Real Gamer's OT. It's baaack! You can play it online and relive all those wonderful memories! Linky You probably already know about this one, but I'm sharing it anyway! :DWhether you name your people after enemies and drive them to the brink (as cameron says - Tiny meals, Grueling pace, and NO REST. MAN UP.), or name them after friends and loved ones and pamper them, there's just something about playing Oregon Trail...Which way do you play? Bataan death march, or 4 month exclusive get-away mobile spa for pioneers?There are a couple things I don't get about the game, however. Like what's with the "peperony and cheese"? And how come all the names are in all caps? You clicked on 992 lbs of this forum topic, but can only carry 100 lbs back to the wagon.

If you don't have it set up like this already, then try it. If you have a smallish room, try putting your subwoofer in the corner. In my room the bass lights up like the 4th of july compared to when the box is sitting in the middle of my room. I'm listening to it right now and it just sounds wicked. You the bass more than you hear the subwoofer itself moving and groaning at the low notes.

The Robot seems to have a problem. Whenever I comment on the questions page, the robot sends me my comment in E-Mail form as if someone else answered my question. But it's not my question at all, I just tried to answer someone else's question. I don't need to know what I just said. Is this normal or broken? *It happened last on monday the 18th so I don't know if it's been fixed or just being intermittent.

This house in Maine has no furnace and will generate more power than it uses. With some extreme air-tightness and solar panels this is one super efficient house. It even has mood ring-style lights on the side to let you know how it's doing. Green is for Net-Zero use, yellow is on the border, and red for pulling more from the grid. Linkvia MAKE

It being near the end of the year, I figured that this would be a good topic.From being a member of Instructables, what have you learned? Either from iBles, or through forums.How have other members here helped you or changed your life?I'd have to say, that I've learned way more about electronics than from reading books, and have finally found a way that I can entirely express my self.Happy New Year everyone!

I look at all the DC windmill and solar panel projects on the net and I was wondering if an AC appliance (lamps, blenders, microwaves, refrigerators, etc) will run on DC current. Answers? Opinions? Further Questions?

Usually this kind of stuff isn't an issue, but this one is really bad. I can boot up the computer, but can't login unless it's in safe mode, and I can burn a boot disk if necessary. If I try to login, it just logs me off. Any Ideas?
Question by furrysalamander | last reply
Hi, I am looking at a parallel circuit that includes a power supply by 3 AA batteries and powers 30 LEDs (Being sold like so). I want to convert the same supplies to series circuit powered by the same 3 AA batteries however the amount of LEDs could vary from 1 to 30. Would this still be functional and not burn out the LEDs? The overall project is designing a series circuit that can have different amounts of LEDs in it. I would like to know if I need to change the power supply for each situation (and how to do that easily) or if it would work fine. Thanks!

I recently won a years free membership and I activated it, and came back 8 hours later. Has the instructables layout changed naturally or is it different for pros? The new tabs are labelled; Create, explore, contests and more. Can you help?

With his Burning Man Skills 2007 instructable, TimAnderson has made his 100th instructable. He's the first person to do so.Here's what ewilhelm has to say about it.Tim's one of those one-in-a-billion types, and he's personally inspired me on numerous occasions. He carefully observes and learns from the world around him, and then turns around and, with near limitless energy, teaches everything he knows to others. Have a look through his 100 Instructables; you'll be sure to learn something new.Congrats, Tim!

I had an unexpected surprise today, I found this MAKE: book by the door addressed to me... (Thanks MAKE: team!) I was happy about that and I am enjoying reading this book, but then I am starting to wonder why did I receive this book...? And has anybody else unexpectedly got something from MAKE: or Instructables? (I know Goodhart got a T-Shirt from the members of Instructables.) (I can't post the picture on this forum, there is some weird error going on...)

Usually, my view counts are in the 100's in just a day... I lost my camera awhile ago, and totally stopped posting for about 3 months. After I bought a new camera and started posting again, my view counts are at only 11 after 2 days! Has anyone else noticed this? is it possible my 'ibles aren't making it to the "Explore" section? I never see them there...are they hidden from the author?

Hey. I published my instructable, and entered it in the pocket sized contest over a week ago. There's no reason it wouldn't be accepted, and I even got an e-mail telling me my entry was accepted. So why is my instructable nowhere? I looked through every single page of recent, rating, views etc and it isn't anywhere. Hell, even when I type the exact words into the search (of the title) it doesn't appear. Has anyone else had this problem?

I have a toshiba satellite 200cds that my neighbor gave me. When i start it up you can hear it booting and the hard drive light comes on, but the screen has no picture. I tried plugging it into an lcd monitor and still no picture. It doesn't have a battery, could that be the problem? Any help with this would be much appreciated. Also the disk drive wont open, when i push the button it makes a click like its about to open, but doesnt.
