hiding a bebo page

Ok i have a small problem. My kid wants to do this poetic terrorism thing in our town. Putting up signs warning about low flying angels and such. There is a statue of some great leader of the past and he wants to put a ball and chain on him. This is subversive art and he wants to set up a bebo page or similar to display his poetic subversions but he is afraid that the page would lead authorities back to him. Can he hide?

Hiding ceiling projector

UPDATE! made some progress and have it all set up, its in the finishing touches area now. :) Items used- -12 in AC linear actuator -3 way switch - 4x draw slides - MDF - PVC - ceiling tile - various sizes of wood for frame for the actuator. ______________________________________________________________________________________ I have an idea for my ceiling mounted projector to hide in the ceiling tile and then lower down when a button is pressed. however I have no idea how to execute it. in theory I would need a motor to pull up and lower down the tile that the projector is mounted to and then run the cables down the wall to a switch. but I turn to you instructables to tell me how to make the motor stop when the tile is low enough on the cable and when it rises back into place with the other tiles. Sort of like an automatic window on a car. with the push of a button it goes into place and when the button is pushed again it rises back.?

Hiding a PS2 inside a PS1 case.

Hello, I have an interesting proposal for you all. I am interested in putting all of the hardware from a PS2 into a PS1 case. I want this for a friend of mine who cannot have a PS2 where he is. Is there anyone who has done this, or has any ideas that would help me? I have been told by one person that the hardware will never fit, but I've seen the crazy things people on here can do, so I thought I ask you all. Thank you

He's back! Hide the women and children.

Hi there, all you groovy Instructables folks! After an extended absence due to vacations, visiting relatives, intermittent router failures and general "life happens" stuff (not necessarily in that order), I have returned to haunt the boards once again. I have missed this crazy place, and am looking forward to catching up with all the stuff that went down while I was gone. First order of business is to find out who this goober is that is accusing me of stealing one of my instructables from him. Sheesh.

How to hide a large speaker in a Halloween display?

We're preparing a bit of an over-the-top Halloween display.  Part of it involves three singing pumpkins on some sort of pedestal.  To provide the audio, we're using a guitar amp — it's about 16 inches high and sounds fantastic. Sounds fantastic, that is, until we stick it inside a cardboard-and-foam pedestal, at which point it sounds muffled and sad.  We could crank up the volume, but that doesn't really produce the clear sound we're going for. At the same time, I don't want the amp just sitting there on the lawn... I want to preserve the illusion that the pumpkins are producing the sound.  So I need to hide the amp in/under the pedestal, while still allowing clear sound. We've considered just having the pedestal open on front, draped with a thin dark cloth to hide what's inside.  That would probably sound great, but it no longer looks like a stone pedestal.  If there's going to be a big dark hole in it, I need some explanation for why the hole should be there, so it doesn't seem out of place. Anybody have any ideas how we can effectively hide this big speaker in the scene?

What to do with a 200W solar panel? Answered

I recently got a nice 200W solar panel including controller. Initial plan was to use it to power the outdoor freezer during the summer and later on to get a 12V compressor for it to avoid the inverter. Now my agent did an inspection and demands the solar panel has to go as it is too big and makes the backyard look untidy. To sum it up: Not allowed to mount it on the roof, in the garden, in the backyard or against a wall.... Only option at this stage would be to mount it on my roof rack but I don't have the time for long camping trips anymore :( Quite reluctant to just sell it as I thought someone here might still have an idea how to "hide" a big panel so the agent won't notice next time.

Knife concealment??

OK, i was wondering about how to conceal a knife, and i remember listening to Nocturnal podcast by Scott Sigler, and one of the gangsters had a knife in his shoe. i was wondering if i could hide a knife in my shoe like this:1. put the knife under that removable pad in the shoe.2. cut a hole in the back of the shoe that looks like this:|..................... | |_ _ _ _ _ _ _| |......................|dont mind the periods, they are just place markers.3. tie a string (fishing line) to one of the holes in the back of the handle, run the line through the above hole in the back of the shoe. 4. drill a hole in a quarter and tie the string to the quarter, then stick it in your pocket. when you need the knife, grab the quarter from your pocket, lift your leg with the shoe and knife, then pull it out. the way you cut it, the flaps will open and the knife will slide out, but will stay closed all other times. could someone please make an instructable on this, or tell me if it would work by testing it out?
