This one day, I was trying to open a page, and I noticed something funny. The thing at the bottom of the page that shows you how much of the page has loaded was going backwards! Seriously, it was on 99, and then it went to 97, 89, 78, 65, 55, 43, 20, 4... My Fasterfox timer (which counts how long it takes for your page to load) even started going backwards! Ah well. I guess that's just what I get for using an old version of Firefox. (2.00.01, I know it's old.)

Hello. Here is a stupid question from a stupid newbie. Does anyone know where I can find step-by-step instructions on how to load bullets into a Tikka T3 rifle with a box-style .22-250 magazine, preferably with illustrations? It has been many years since I have used a rifle and I have never used a rifle with a magazine, always using single rounds. Thanks for the help!

As the title says I`m trying to find a best solution for a 110V 200-250Watt() inductive or resistive dummy load. Small size 4x4", rugged , as lightweight as possible and the least emitted heat . Incandescent light bulbs are not suitable. What are my options. Thanks guys.

I unfortunately do not have many big resistors that can dissipate lots of power, and would like to make a dummy load to test and parameterize batteries and power supplies. I want constant power, constant current, and constant resistance load, I do have lots of opamps and a few N and P channel enhancement mode MOSFETs as well as many 2N3055s and a couple MJE2955's. I think constant current is the easiest, since all I need to do is make a closed loop controller that will turn off the transistor as the current is exceeded, and turn it on as the current falls. Constant power might be more tricky, as I need a device that controls the bias on a transistor as a function of the product of the voltage and current, since P=IE or W=AV, and similarly, constant resistance, I need a thing that will divide voltage across the pass element by the current through it. I don't want to use a "slow" microcontroller for this, I like nice continuous analog control system, if that is possible.

When I try to make an Instructable, it works perfectly. … Until I click any button, when it greys out a little, shows the little loading twirly thing, my cursor says it's loading, and nothing happens. I have had it up for a couple of hours now and it still won't stop. I've tried it in iCab, Firefox, Safari, and Omniweb. Please help! I'm trying to enter in a contest before it ends.

The iphone 3Gs is amazing. But 3 days into it, with only a dozen apps downloaded, more than half of the apps dont load. They pop up for an instant and immediately close out. Only a few work. I've tried removing an app. I've tried restarting it. No dice. Any suggestions?

In most to all of the instructables, questions, and forum topics I have visited recently, the pictures featured have had the "Loading" bar across them the entire time I am visiting the page. The pictures are fully visible and loaded, but the bar persists.

I know the new contest page is still very new, but I ran into a frustrating issue. I was looking at a contest with several hundred entries and had clicked the "load more entries" button several times before I clicked on an instructable to take a closer look. When I hit the back button to continue browsing the entries, it loaded with only the most recent entries loaded again. It's frustrating to have to reload all those extensions over again and may ultimately lead to less viewers seeing the earliest entries in a large contest. If reloading the contest page where you left off isn't feasible, perhaps entries on contest pages could automatically open in a new window/tab.

Hi everyone I started to write my first instructable on my windows 10 computer i finished writing the first step and saved The instructable next say I opened the instructable draft from my windows 10 computer and it opened and I wrote the next step . It worked fine in my windows 10 computer But now I'm not at home now I wanted to complete the instructable from my phone I signed in and clicked "you "in the top right corner and clicked "draft instructable 1 ". Instead of going to the draft instructable the page went to my profile In my profile i clicked the" three bars " on the top right corner and clicked "publish " then clicked "draft instructable" then the page started loading and never finished loading . Specs of phone : Micromax canvas juice 2 on android 5.0 ,. 2 gb Ram . I tested it on a moto e2 3g and it didn't work there too in both of these phones i tested it on Google chrome then I tested it on UCbrowser and still it didn't load Network connection is 3g

Question by HarishN | last reply
My friend and I are considering building a spring loaded cannon. The idea right now is to have a pvc pipe for the cannon chamber, and pvc pipes flanking it to hold springs in parallel. A cross-bar will go through all 3 pipes through slits cut long ways in the pipe. The springs will be attached to some point forward in the flanking pipes and to the cross bar, which will be used to pull the springs back and, once released, will launch the dart/ball in the center tube. My research so far - the spring rates of springs loaded in parallel are additive. With 5x 10-in*lb springs, we can produce 667 newtons of force when pulled back 3 inches (springs in question are 5.5 in long) . That will produce an acceleration of 303 m*s^2 on a 1 lb (2.2 kg) albeit for only a fraction of a second. http://www.amazon.com/Extension-Spring-5-625-Long-080-count/dp/B001292S08/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s;=industrial&qid;=1257718057&sr;=1-1 These are the springs we're looking at. We'll need to use an even number of springs, so either 4 or 6 (or 8 or 10). So, what do you guys think? Practical? Will we be able to get any distance? Any suggestions? A ROUGH picture is shown below. === are spring tubes, | are handles, and left arrows indicate direction in which springs will be stretched, and the right arrow is a dart flying out of the center launch tube. <----| ===== XXXXXXXXX ------> ===== <----|

Hello guys, I want to make a publicity trailer with led's that will stand at party's (and on the side of the road in the week). This trailer will stand alone and will be powered by a 12V car battery. I would like to charge that battery while moving it with my car by a long cable to the 12V socket in the car. Should I place a resistor to limit the current or is this not necessary? The trailer is for my youth movement. (sorry for my bad english) Grts, Dieter Belgium

Question by Glider58 | last reply
I'm looking for some ideas on how to get a small 1940's AC Combine (farm machinery) onto a trailer without having to dismantle it. It weighs about 3000# so not too heavy but the 2 wheels are about 104" apart (wide) so they won't fir onto a normal deckover style trailer (96" wide). Once I can get it on the trailer, I plan to set it down on blocks and chain it down. The problem - how to get it ONTO the trailer. Seems I have 2 options - 1) rig up something to make the ramps and trailer wider (just for loading) OR 2) rig up something with wheels that will bolt to the axle BUT be narrow enough to fit onto the trailer ..... sort of like a dolly. Option 2 presents a bit of a problem in making sure the "dolly wheels" clear the combine's axle since they'll be underneath it. Thanks for your advice/ideas.

Have built a pallet/ man sized trebuchet in a 4th grade class project. Looks great, swings well, but the tennis ball load is either released before the sling swings up, or not at all (slams against the arm). Have used 2 ropes with a shallow bag. Any suggestions? (Kids were disappointed on Friday)

Guys, I want to use a strain gauge as a load cell in a driving game, where the brake padal is force sensitive not movement sensitive. Currently the pedal is set up with a rotary potentiometer which has three connections and is basically the same as a PC joystick, complete with the circuit board. The strain gauge is one of the resistive film type with two connections, and the resistance will vary with the extension of the gauge; however, I don't know how to link this to the joystick circuit hardware, as one of the connections is missing Any ideas?

I just went to flag an obvious SPAM posting. The flagging interface hung up, and took more than ten seconds to appear. It had the same kind of problematic delay as the new text editor box.I wonder if these long delays are actually related, somehow, to the pretentiously fancy "fade in" technique that's being used. A simple, and fast, pop-up would be much friendlier to the users, if not as sexy to the developer community.

Welcome to this fourm, this fourm is about a breach loaders, if you have made any feel free to post (this dose not mean mag gun for the whole point is to help 1 shots/ sniper rifles get a easy load that is acurate fast im gessing at one point in time almost everyone made a 1 shot. But 1 shots have not evolved much, its all almost the same, pull fireing pin back and "muzzle load" it (with some exeptions of folding and back loading it)but wile loading the thing sometimes it fires, so it would hit your hand or your face (and my spring powered rifles have done so) , the solution? simple somehow get the thing to load without ever geing you to look at the barrel, sniper rifles usaly have it hard for they have long barrels (not including mepains) and take a long time to muzzle load the bullet. a faster way would be to breach load itso on this fourm posably post pictures of ideas you have of breach loading and if it somehow makes it more acurate. but just no old mag guns for the idea is to help make a fast and easy way to load. example this sniper rifle i made heres a video

I'm looking into a system that will enable me to determine the distribution of load on an archer's draw hand grip, probably as a percentage of the whole load. I have some basic ideas drafted, but before I start re-inventing the wheel, has anyone anything similar set up that I could look at or consider developing.The sensors/load cells must be able to fit between the two layers of a standard archery tab. There must be three sensors, for the three fingers of a normal "hook" grip, and I think either an Arduino or Pi based processor.

A picture says a thousand words (to quote millions of other people :)) So the problem is is that in Internet explorer 8, when you go to edit your instructable (excuse my sad little attempt at an 'ible in the background, I wanted to try out the editor) The whole editor is greyed out, and a loading bar is displayed indefinitly (2 hours in) I have tryed reloading the page, and it is still greyed out. The obvious soulution would be to upgrade to Chrome or Firefox <3, but that is not possible :(
