no contests for me?

I am really bummed that there are all these cool contests, especially in the food category and I can't enter because my husband works at Autodesk? Is this true?  He has nothing to do with Instructables.  We did enter the Halloween contest for employees but all of the instructables on food are mine and not his.  Do I need to get a divorce? ;-)

The new me

It's been a toughweek for me, people. School started a week ago and something strange happened. Friends have been abandoning me one by one, and everyone acted soulless in front of me. It seemed like everyone was unhappy with somehing. Then i started to realize that everyone was unhappy with me.  This morning, i received messages from my friends saying why they hate me. Apparently i was an arrogant little ****. My friends were trying to deal with my arrogance for too long, and they couldn't take it anymore. I then logged on to instructables, yet having more controversy on my 'ibles. If you want to know why i am arrogant, I was considered to be a 'perfect kid'. I have a 3.8 gpa in high school now, and i am taking 4 AP classes, and one honors. I also made varsity tennis and JV basketball in freshman year, so i was considered good at sports (not bragging). I also won 3 karate sparring tournaments, which raised my self confidence even more higher, to the point where i almost became a kanye west duplicate. I was incredibly egotistical and happy with my self, because i was good at almost everything. I felt as though i was on top of everyone else, and i have always tried to maintain that position. But that happiness vanished during this week. Even in my first couple of 'ibles, i was overhappy and arrogant, and i used to demand respect and recognition. But i later realized that this wasn't right. I have made my mistakes of being an arrogant D-bag, and i am introducing the new me: a still happy person who doesn't cross the line towards arrogance. - IMPORTANT MESSAGE: Everyone has done bad things and made mistakes. If you haven't done bad things, you are a liar. Ask yourself this: How many times have you cheated on anything? Did you steal from anyone (even something worth a penny)? How many times have you lied to anyone? How many times have you broken the rules of your household, school, or anywhere else? There are many questions i can ask, but i will stop right here. We all make mistakes, but you are a good person as long as you LEARN from your mistake. I have learned from my bad things i have done in the past. I will be more mature and still maintain above a 3.8 gpa and still do my sports, but i will change my attitude and i won't be so arrogant and immature. This is a new me.

Help me!!

Https:// In this Control circuit schematic They explained about sensor inputs (the sensor inputs are connected to the analog inputs on the Arduino board ( A0, A1, A2, A3 ). The input voltages on these pins are converted into a 10 bit integer value such that the range between 0V and 5V and translated into a value between 0 and 1023 respectively. The ideal connector thus contains 3 inputs per sensor ( 5V, GND, A ) resulting in 12 connection points.) I need clear explanation about this and what type of sensors they using and how they connected ?? Thanks For ur help :) :)

You are not me, and you are not funny by trying to be me.

So lately there have been some dumbasses on the site (I'm looking at you, "DJ_SPLENDIFERIOUS") who think that imitating me, my phrases, or my avatars will be cool because I'm so awesome.  All you people are really doing is wearing out my style.  Nobody can be me better than myself, so why bother trying? I decided to take a look at the world population, and I see that there are 6,809,972,000 people in the world as of the 2009 census.  So that means there are 6,809,971,999 people that are not me, and therefore should stop wasting their time imitating me.  Now I know that not everybody imitates me, but the main point is that only I can be me, and everyone else is just wearing out my style.

Please, release me; let me go...

Yesterday, I posted a long comment, with clear, cogent, and on-topic content, to a forum topic which was specifically addressed to me. It is now more than 25 hours later, and my reply is still trapped in whatever antiscientific purgatory it was banished. If it's not going to be released, could someone on staff post a comment to that effect in the forum topic, so that the OP and others know they aren't going to get an answer.

i need the front button layout of a Regent HT-391 HTS? Answered

My cousin gave me one of these but the front clip broke off and apparently got thrown away, the two plugs for the front buttons have labels as to what they are but there are only 5 buttons and one remote (the thing that picks up a remote, i cant think of the name of it right now). but there are 9 plugs listed in this order GND DOWN UP SOUND INPUT ST-BY(standby) +5V REM MGND the other port is for the LED's, i have no interest in hooking those up. all i need to know is how to hook up these wires to use them. if someone has one of these and wouldn't mind popping the front off and taking a picture of the wires or board if there is one. i should be able to put it together using just that depending on the quality of the picture and if they are what im needing. FYI dont post on here just go buy a new system, i have a pioneer 5.1 1k watt HTS. im fixing this box so i can use it outside when im working on stuff here's a pic of the front of the thing, i just need a picture of the other side unfortunately.

Made By Me *UPDATE*

I'm sure many of you have seen the latest Facebook meme that's going around: Made by Me.It goes like this:Made By MeThe first five people to respond to this post will receive something made by me.This offer does have some restrictions:- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make.- It will be made just for YOU.- It will be done this year (2009).- It will be something made in the real world and not something over the internet.- It might be art. It might be craft. It might be food.In return, all you need to do is post this text into a note of your own and make five things for five other people.etc. etc.Well, a carpenter I know posted this recently, and I just could not resist something hand-made by this guy. He once made some kind of wooden whirly gig from medieval prints he'd seen. I couldn't resist! So I reposted, and got my five (+) responses, and I'm going to keep you all posted on what I'm making for them! I'll instructablize all of the projects, and probably make some sort of "Made by Me" guide.If you're on facebook, I encourage you to join this thread, and pass it along! If you're not, and you're interested, try to start an email thread. Come back to get inspiration for your gifts, and make sure to post your own results!Let me know what you've done!***** UPDATE ***********************************************************I think what I failed to mention here, is that this is a neat idea to share with your friends. I would not want a stranger to respond to my posting, and I wouldn't respond to a stranger's. Mostly because I don't want crap. I want to make cool stuff I know my friends will like and get cool stuff made by my friends. If you try this out and get people you don't know responding to you, I would just ignore them! Or put something in the main text about how this is for people you know ONLY!Good luck!
