Instructables Lookup Firefox Extension

Does anyone here have experience with Firefox extensions? I think this would be useful.When a word is highlighted and right-clicked, on the context menu, there would be an option of "Lookup in Instructables." When clicked, it would open a new tab for Instructables, and run a search for the highlighted word. It would be similar to Wikipedia Lookup, but for iBles, not Wikipedia. Is anyone up for trying this? I know nothing about how to do it.

excel problem. averaging results of index match?

Hi all (again) new problem semi related to previous. (check my profile for the ones with NFL in the title) now the problem is i want to get the average score for each team in each season. my current formula only gets the first result of the index/match even if i use some of the tricks i've googled. the data is in the format of YearVisitingTeam(W/L/D)Score@HomeTeam(W/L/D)Score          ie   201249ersW41@2012PatriotsL34 i use a formula to strip "Year(Visiting/Home)Team(W/L/D)" so i' left with Score on either side of the "@" (that was a [redacted] pain) using any and all of the tricks i know i get either 0, 27 or an error of some sort. the only way i've been sorta able to do this is by getting the first home win, first home loss, first away win, first away loss BUT that's only 4 of 16 games each season and not a good representation of the average points for the team in a season. the sheet in question is AVG point - Reg Season the source data is 78 - current regular season (2012 season starts @ row 3152)

Problems with Excel formula? (semi-related to previous questions)

Hi all, i've got a problem with a formula in my excel spreadsheet that i'm using to get the scores for NFL teams 1978 - Current i have the data ok but the problem is with matching the the specific games. i've CONCATENATED the data to provide unique data points also it's in two columns (Home & Visitor) in the format of YearTeamW/L/DScore     eg. 2012TitansW35 in the VERY unlikely event (and i've check a random selection) that the team has 2 wins at home with the same score this could cause an error. here is the formula i'm using: (version ~8000zzzzz lol) (all one formula, just added a line break to make it fit) =(IF(MATCH($A$3&$B$2&"w*",Home_Team,0)=MATCH($A$3&$C$2&"l*",Visitor,0),INDEX(Visitor,MATCH($A$3&$C$2&"l*",Visitor,0)) ,IF(MATCH($A$3&$B$2&"d*",Home_Team,0)=MATCH($A$3&$C$2&"d*",Visitor,0),INDEX(Visitor,MATCH($A$3&$C$2&"d*",Visitor,0))))) Here's a link to the folder with the spreadsheet. (NFL Stuf (test).xlsx) Sheet: Past Season Summary - what is says. eventually where the formula is going. Sheet: nfl2011lines - 92   - the data (actually 1978 - 2012 but i named it before i added all the data) Sheet: TESTING - my "sandbox" so i don't [Censored] the main sheets Semi-Related Question1 Semi-Related Question2

wireless tachometer

We aim to do a miniproject -- contactless tachometer. using the principle of receiving the electromagnetic radiation emitted from the spak ignition engines using an antenna. the signal is ampliflied,filtered ,converted to pulses.using an ADC it is then converted to digital form , then counted and by making use of a lookup table,we aim to display the rpm using 1line 16 character alphanumeric display.PIC microcontroller is used for ADC,pulse counting ,storing lookup table and display interface.kindly post ur suggestions regarding this project..{{{}}}

Visit randofo's website

Hey guys, check out randofo's website! I just discovered it.As if his "about" paragraph weren't just hilarious, his website is even better-especially the letters he writes. It's so funny, go look for yourself! This is why we should look at each other's user lookups, you can find some cool things...

Body Fat Analyser

Have just been looking at buying some body fat analyser scales, and they are so expensive! £40 for what is essentially a few electronic components and a lookup table seems ridiculous. I think they use an electric pulse and then something to do with how the fat/water whatever resonates or something. As you see I don't have much to go on. Can anyone shed some light on how they measure these things and maybe even post an Instructable. Much appreciated.

Playing Music on Arduino from EEPROM?

Hi,I want to make a device that has a few audio tracks avalible to be played from the press of a button. I want to have the audio tracks stored on something like an EEPROM because pcpartpicker I am not going nba reddit to be changing them very often. What is the best way to use an external EEPROM that is large enough to store an audio track (about 700kb)? Would I be better off trying to use some other type of storage device? reverse phone lookupThanks!

OPENDNS is blocking access to streamsend links in your mailings

The OPENDNS DNS lookup and anti-phishing service I've used for the last few years has suddenly  decided that the streamsend redirected links in the Instructables weekly newsletters are an attempt at phishing.  I am able to access the instructables web site directly, but I can't follow links from your emails any more. I receive the weekly newsletter through Yahoo email. My older Instructables newsletters that I was previously able to read are having their streamsend links blocked too. This is a problem between streamsend and OPENDNS.  However, Instructables is affected by this if they're a customer of streamsend.
