I feel like making another gun.  Let's have a vote on what it should be.  I will probably post instructions but no guarantee, so lets see your suggestions!  Leave as many as you like, and preferably not from MW2 and definitely not something that has already been done very well before. Thanks

Anyone have any good guitar projects? I added a bias mod to my 5150 head. I even made it accessable from the outside. I won't post a whole instructable about it though because messing around inside a tube amp could kill you.

Hi! I've been lurking on the site for a couple, 3, years. I enjoy looking through various instructables you all have done. I tend to mess with electronics, guitar wiring mainly, and leds. Also, I have a link to my website in my profile if anyone wanted to check that out. It has some art and my guitars up right now. I do have a project which involves a led that I'll post in the appropriate forum. Look forward to my stay here!

I'm new to the instructables although i respect the great job of many user. I'm university student in Greece, styding the "Science of Computers and Wireless Networks". I would like to take part in the Challenge for iRobots but i'm not sure if i should post here or somewhere else, furthermore i would like to inform you that it is a little bit difficult to purchase a new iRobot so i would be greatful if you could contact me via messenger at my e-mail cryptlordgr@hotmail.com to have my scholarship. My plans for the iRobot is to turn it into a moving wireless deck which will search for the local networks, i'm not sure if this possible but i would appreciate if you gave me the chance to challenge me oneself. PS.i'm confused where should i post so please contact me and is it possible for me in Greece to take part in the challenge?

"Hello world"

I appear to be tweeting. Unfortunately, I was beaten to plain old "Kiteman" by some Batman geek, so I am tweeting as KitemanX. Don't expect a constant stream of information, though, since I don't own a smartphone. Later... Dang, I've gained some strange followers - sexy Hallowe'en costumes, protein drinks for golfers, storage in Long Island, and what appears to be a conservative Floridian lobbying group (I don't dress sexy, I hate golf, I live in the UK and I'm randomly liberal). Update: I now have a number of cool followers, including some Instructablers, but I've also gained a random dentist and a Thai tourism company (not to mention the large number of NSFW spammers I've had to block...). Who's *your* weirdest follower?  Or your coolest?

fixing a laptop cable

Hello all! Love this site. First time poster. I have a problem with my laptop cable. It stopped working--I had to maneuver it into all sorts of strange positions to get it to charge my laptop. It finally refused my attempts by not charging at all. So I did the least sensible thing possible and cut into it with wire cutters to see if it was a frayed cable that I could possibly just wrap with electrical tape. Because the adapter was real bendy, more bendy then usual. I thought something inside wasn't connecting right. So now I have a really messed up laptop cable. There seems to be only one wire that extends from the adapter into the cord. I kinda cut into that too by mistake. At the end of the adapter there is a metal knob type thing, I don't know what its for but it doesn't really look like it connects to the cable. Is it fixable? I have beginner soldering skills. I've looked at other laptop cord repair instructables, but I'm not even sure where to begin. Thanks for any help! -Gil

Another LED Question

Hey guys, I want to make a sign with LEDs for my girlfriend(A hello kitty one). I am new at this so I have a quick question. I don't even know if this is possible, but I want to connect 32 white 5mm LED's in parallel and 32 red 3mm in another parallel and run them both off the same power. What sort of power supply do you guys recommend? I was hoping something like USB, but I dont know if that will work. Maybe a 9V battery? And if any of you know a website that sells LEDs t hat will ship to a military address in Iraq, let me know! I will deffiantly make this into an Instructable when I know what I am doing. Any ideas or help would be awesome. Thanks guys. Andrew B.

Hello again folks.

I haven't been too active on Instructables for the last year or so as I have been busy trying to put my life back together. A little over a year ago my partner Joan announced out of the blue that "we had run our course", an accumulation of health issues for both of us, family problems & various setbacks had taken its toll on her and she felt it was time for her to concentrate on raising her granddaughter alone. Needless to say this was a hammer blow losing two people I had built my life around tore me apart, it also meant I had to find somewhere to live, I tried to find somewhere I could have even a small workshop but being on a very limited budget it was impossible so instead I rented a small studio flat and put all my tools into storage. My son & I have now rented a garage to use both as storage and a workshop, we were very lucky to get one quite literally yards from my home, it lacks power and lighting so it is still a little limited but hopefully once it is set up I'll be able to start doing a few larger projects once again. In the meantime I have returned to doing the kind of table top projects I made thirty odd years ago when I last lived in a small flat mostly match craft tins & trinket boxes along with a couple of guitar tool & plectrum boxes, not exactly the beds & tables I was building a couple of years ago but it has kept me busy. I have also resurrected a couple of acoustic guitars, restored a nice Fender Squeir Strat and rebuilt my ex's old electric bike, owing to the vertigo problem I have had for the last couple of years I can't ride a motorcycle at present so this has at least given me some independent transport & its far cheaper than using taxis & buses to get around, I'm now on the lookout for materials to salvage and ideas for new projects so hopefully I'll be publishing a few 'ibles quite soon. I hope you don't mind my sharing my recent history with you but now I'm finally feeling more able to move on with my life & get on with making again I felt the need to reintroduce myself in some way. Here are a few pictures of what I've been making on a coffee table & lap tray along with my Fender & the bike which was a rather unattractive mess a few weeks ago & now has quite a smart vintage look to it.

Everyone please say hello to 'The Teacher Is Dead HaHa', my upperclassmen who just joined.

So yeah, a couple of weeks ago I invited my upperclassmen 'The_Teacher_Dead_LOL' to chat with me, DJ, littlehef37 and n8 on the I'bles chatroom. It was pretty fun, so I asked him to join I'bles just for the heck of it, and he did. His acc is 'The Teacher Is Dead HaHa', and his main point of interests are cooking and photography, so if he might get his lazy butt up his couch and start working hard, you might be able to expect a few cooking and photography I'bles from him. He's a really nice guy, and he doesn't like K'nex (he (jokingly) insulted DJ in the chatroom for playing with 'toy guns' (ROFL) ), so you K'nexers better not be spamming him :-P He's around one and a half year older than me BTW, I'll be 14 on September and he just turned 15 on February. He will be (I think) online around the same time as me, 'cuz all the kids in my school are basically online around the time I'm on, so, yeah.... Oh, and another thing, he's not so good at speaking English. He's a D student in English, but he's open to a lot of constructive criticisms on his English. He does use capital letters, commas, full stops etc. properly though, and he doesn't spell badly because he actually wants to, so that's a plus, I guess... Well, I guess that's it. Moga2 lo bisa sukses di nih website cuy, best of luck dari gw lah! :-P
