As a bit of fun, I'm Tweeting the progress of my next batch of beer, announcing each stage, and the occasional photo. My Twitter name is @KitemanX, and I'm using the hashtag #BrewDay. If it's succesful, I may do it again, or I may not. Fickle, aren't I? Oh, and I'm tweaking my original recipe, which can be found here: https://www.instructables.com/id/Simple-Beer-No1/ EDIT The new brew is published!

We drive a Jetta Diesel. TDI. Fuel here in Canada is now over $5.00 a gal. and although we get 50 + miles per gal. we are wondering what cooking oil we can directly pour into the fuel tank. We have heard that someone in England is doing it, as gas over there is $12. + a gal. Has anyone had any experience. Many years ago the VW company said that if not able to get diesel, get some peanut oil. Any thoughts?

Just got my alumni magazine in the mail. I open it up and see one of the former ibles interns featured in a two page color spread - Tetranitrate. I guess he answered our "Earth calling Billy" to see what he has been up to lately. See the article here http://cable.poly.edu/issue/spring-2011/news/campus-buzz/bright-ideas-billy-gordon I had met him at Maker Faire last year with his LED dredlocks. So what is the moral of this story? Somewhere out there is a market for the pants kilt.

Four Europeans are in the final stages of selection to be locked into a series of sealed boxes for a year and a half. They are competing for two of the six places in Mars500 - a full-scale simulation of a short-stay Mars mission (a year and a half each way, a month on the surface - don't get me started on how wasteful that is...). The Mars500 facility, which is located on the IBMP site in Moscow, comprises four sealed modules. The total interior volume is about 550 cubic metres. There are no windows. The walls in the living quarters have been covered with a wooden panelling to make them feel slightly less austere. Looking after the participants' needs will be a mission control-room sited just outside the containers. But the experiment's designers are determined to make the training exercise as realistic as possible, so they will introduce a time delay in communications after two months. Because it can take about 20 minutes for a message to travel from Mars to Earth, it will take this amount of time in the simulation also. Message delay The crew and their ground controllers will send text messages to each other and then have to wait for the replies. It means there can be no real-time conversations with friends and family - and, in moments of crisis, it will mean the crew will have to make crucial decisions themselves. I think the biggest test will be the social side - how will six humans, no matter how well-selected, deal with having nobody but each other for years on end, and being in each others' faces twenty-four hours a day? Could we end up looking at the first murder in space? BBC Story ESA article Institute for Biomedical Problems

Here's my idea - get two medium sized ivy vines (or some other creeper) and attach the pots to the bottom of a jacket. As the plants grow wind the vines around the jacket so they eventually cover the whole thing, sort of weaving them together. When finished, gently remove the jacket and attach the pots to a belt. Viola a living jacket! Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions? I know it wouldn't be very practical, but it'd probably look cool

I was given a TV, (Panasonic TC-1485); it directs the sound to the side rather than to the front and it's not very clear. I was going to take the wires from the internal speaker and solder them to a 3.5 jack socket so that I could use it with headphones. I read today that until recently TVs were 'live chassis', does this mean it would be dangerous to wire up headphones or have I misunderstood? Thank you.

I used to have high speed internet., the service provider was AT&T. One day we could not get internet. at&t said we had it. The main point is that we don;t have any more. I was looking into one of those connect cards, and wondered is it fast enough for xbox live. Do you need 3G coverage for it to work.. I live right out side the boundry between 3G and the lower bit for Verizion. I checked a local cell phone service coverage and its the same thing as Verizion. My question is what do I do. Are the conect cards fast enough any way or what. And if so, who has the best. the cheapest, and the best MB limit. Who should I go with and what do I do. My local cell company is Cellular South. I was looking at CS's Huawei EC 168 Data Card. Just google cellular south connect card to find it. I am definetly going to get the 5 gigs of possible downloads.(if my parents will pay for it) I am only 14, so I can't do a whole lot. Please help!

Hello, So I have two things to talk about, one I have a few questions and two i have a story. -Story time ! So all my life I have wanted to do Animatronics, and live in California. Well last Tuesday I left my CEMS job (continual emissions monitoring), for many reasons. I have had this thought for a while to just pick up and leave. I did really enjoy my job but it was not what i had wanted to do, I was also tired of being lied to and disrespected. So my best friend was packing up the stuff out of his house and moving to another friends house. I told him "let's go to California" and he said "ok, sure" So we left, I had nothing but some friends and family tying me down anyways. So I packed up my Buick and his VW and we set off from Pennsylvania to California with no real plan what so ever. It was great, and still is, mostly .... -Questions ? So does anybody do any work with Animatronics, or live in California ? What is the best way to get in ? Wheres the best place to live in CA with access to good tech jobs ? -My experience is 3 Years of electronics, I am ETA certified, I have done FIRST robotics for 5 years and now mentor it, I also have tons of experience with computers/servers, also a good bit of CEMS experience. I am currently in Sacramento California, and just looking for some good advice Thanks Robert

INSTRUCTABLES: www.projectfidgetyfingers.blogspot.com We have been collecting glass jars and bottles for the arrival of our glass cutter. And while we are at the subject of plants, we have decided to make some mini terrariums. We talked about friends without green thumbs and the sweet token of giving something green. It is going to be a disaster if the gift dies before the next time you visit them. So, we thought of fool-proofing it by making terrariums. Terra is a word meaning Earth in Latin. It is an area, usually enclosed, for keeping and raising animals or plants for observation or research. Often, a portion of the ecosystem for a particular species is simulated on a smaller scale, with controls for environment conditions. The main requirement is that it be watertight to keep the moisture in. So, non-green thumbs ahoy! This means light watering every month or longer. The plants are usually hardy and do not grow quickly if you keep the water circulating. This is a fabulous mini sustainable environment to create, a sort of 'living snow globe'. A magical gift for kids and the office desk.

I have submitted for password retreival several times over the last 2 weeks. I never receive the email. No, I do not have a spam box. I found my password but I suspect it get's changed when one submits a retreival form since I still can not log in. So, now, I had to create a new account just to be able to post this! All I want now is for some real person (erm... no fake ppl please) to email me and help me be able to log in with my real account. I'd like to remove this account. Oh no, I hope that is possible too. Anyone working for Instructables want to email me so I can give you my other account's user id and email? So from there you can email that account a new password or whatever the procedure is?

Question by faisalch 7 years ago | last reply 6 years ago
I am the eldest of 7 siblings. I helped my parents and 5 younger siblings to purchase their first house, which they could not afford any other way at that time. I lent them the down payment with the agreement that my husband and I had half of the interest. I also wanted to help them with their financial stature. Owning a house and paying a mortgage will help their credits. My mother being the adult and saner when it comes to financial issues, so I thought, that I had a serious talk with her about the half interest between them and my husband and I. Three years later, they bartered the house for a new townhouse, without our knowledge, not being in the title. I made a big issue about not getting my half interest upon knowing they purchased a new townhouse. They gave me and my husband our money back from the second mortgage loan of the new townhouse. To this day, according to them since we received our money back, my husband and I are no longer entitled to any more profit. Our parents passed away and left a Will that the town house be divided to us, 7 siblings. Our lazy sibling who is unemployed for years does not want to move out of the townhouse and does not want to follow what the Will said. Our talks always ended in a screaming episode each time by my telling her to do right thing. To have a meeting and not hide the Will so she could stay in the rent free house that our mother left for all of us. Our mother who survived longer than our father made the mortgage payments for my two siblings left living with her are unemployed. The others moved out and god married and only sibling left who is unemployed and wanting to live forever as she can and refuses to discuss about what to do with the Will left by our mother. What shall I do? Please help and pardon my explanation if not so clear. Thank you.

Hi, I hope this is the correct place to ask some rocket minded guys how we can solve our fridged home problem. Our 30yr old cottage built with 2 layer perimeter brick and covered with heavy clay tiled roof becomes a freezer in winter. With restricted use of power as a result of our Govt's poor planning it gets cut at anytime and gas heaters not being safe, is there a simple way to get natural heat other than installing a fireplace at great cost that could heat all rooms? B'lieve me guys it's ccold here even with a winter's sun outside, so solar panels or similar would need to absorb heat to distribute it all round and be very costly - Sunny South Africa not so warm.

Hey everyone! I'm about to move into a new house for my senior year of college and I was wondering if there were any cool ideas for decorations that we can put up. An example would be like the hanging bottles with lights on them for our outside porch, easy and would look extremely legit. Unfortunately that is where all my ideas end so I was wondering if anyone else could share how they decked out their living space. Thanks!

Question by The Red Book of Westmarch 6 years ago | last reply 6 years ago
Is this a good idea? Who ever thinks moving back in with your parents is a GOOD thing? Perhaps when it comes with free room and board and helping you pay back your college loans. Here's the deal:I move States and help work at my brothers' store in exchange for not having to stress about rent, paying back college loans - basically about life. But is it truly stress free?What about the stress attained after reverting back to your childlike role? Granted, I'll have more time to plan on grad school and writing on the side...I can't stand my Dad. He's going senile and has a short temper after he gets into your business and doesn't understand - and I lack the patience.He'll start yelling and reverting back to his "I'm the tyrannical boss" mode one moment and forget he wasn't as gentle as he is in the next.I see my brothers - they're both in their 30s and technically, it's their house they want me to move into, but they don't date, they don't have time what with working so much. And my mom cooks all the time and I've already gained 10 pounds from the Christmas break visit.I'm just wondering if life will ever be stress-free or if it just transcends...
