Who would win in a fight: Fungus Amungus or Noahw? - UPDATED Answered

Fungus enjoys cutting bears in half, being a dinosaur, and Swedish sports.Noah is experienced at pouring water through his nose, putting on condoms and kissing.So the big question is, Who would in in a fight?Best answer gets a patch =]Tally so far:Ed (fungus) : 11Noah: 5The results are in! And they're pretty inconclusive. While Fungus Amungus won by sheer voting power, those that know them voted for Noah. Fungus had this to say about the underdog, "Noah's been a river guide for the past month so he's probably pretty strong right now." So who would win? The world may never know. What we do know is that I'm awarding patches to both Goodhart and AndyGadget for the most logical, and systematic guesses, respectively.

To Randofo or Noahw or / and whomever else helped me along with this....

Whomever it was that last pointed out that I was on the forums "so much, it is no wonder I have no time to build/make anything"; and a few others that pointed this out before, I want to apologize for my evading the obviously accurate critique, first off. Secondly, because you(all) have been correct, and I am able to finally get my head straight and admit it (I have made SO many excuses up to this point), I am definitely going to try to split my time up better, and maybe be a little more productive (which means I may not be around the forums quite as often). I also wish to thank all that have pointed this out to me, and finally got it beaten into the near-dead and old piece of meat on the top of my spine. I wish I could find the places I am making reference to, but after 1/2 hour of searching I can not. Thanks again....PS: no, I am not leaving....

Instructables goes Trapezing! (Updated with Videos!)

On the 16th of October, team instructables decided to head over to Trapeze Arts for a day of fun and adventure! As a reward for our one millionth registered user, I was given the option to choose how we got to celebrate the occasion.  After researching for a little while, a friend mentioned that she'd recently gone to a one day trapeze class.  I looked into it, and it seemed like a fun idea.  Several people brought cameras and a bunch of videos were taken. You can see photo's of the event below, sadly the video's haven't been cut together yet.  Hopefully I'll be able to add that soon! ----- Well, I finally managed to get the videos all put together, I hope you enjoy! You can find them on our youtube channel. However, I'll just embed them here for ease of browsing! I figured it'd be nice to show off one complete run by everyone. Sadly we didn't get video of everyone getting caught, so I had to make do with what I had. Now a video of everyone's practice runs. We had to just practice swinging and getting our legs up and over the bar, then jumping back into the net. The guy who does the double flip out of the net at the end of the video is the instructor who's catching us in the following video. Then we all got a chance to get caught. this is another mashed up video of all of us on our runs to get caught by one of the instructors. Finally, after we finished the trapezing, we went to the equipment room to have some more fun. There were trampolines, tight rope (that was a couple feet of the ground), plate spinning, super yo-yo's, and a whole ton more. Again, we were all having fun, so video didn't get taken of everything, but I think this mash-up kind of shows off some of what we got to do. ...And that was our trip to Trapeze Arts! Everyone who worked there was great, and we had a blast! Thanks!

why the hell isn't my instructable publishing?

I have been trying to have an instructable published for 2 days now. Here's a screenshot of the hidden comments that an admin (noahw) is sending me. First he agrees that my instructable does not violate any of the 'criteria' that are so thoroughly bulleted in the first post, then goes on to say that he just is a little uncomfortable because he doesn't quite understand a simple point in the instructable. I guess noahw's full and total comprehension of each and every step of an instructable is what decides if it's publishable or not. To make the instructable understandable by noahw I added a thorough diagram. I then attempted to republish the instructable last night and it still has not appeared on the instructables page,...... it did not used to be this difficult to share knowledge on instructables with people other than the admins.. Sorry if this post sounds a little annoyed, but I am.

US Distributor of HB Electronic's LEDs - www.Buy-LEDs-Online.com

I just completed an order for a couple hundred LEDs and batteries that Instructables will be using at SXSW next week to make LED Floaties at PopSci's SXSW afterparty. I ordered them from Buy-LEDs-Online, a US distributor for the well written about HB Electronics. HB Electronics is the recommended vendor of LEDs for LED Throwies and LED Floaties. They ship direct from China, but unfortunately they were out of stock on their throwie packs. Buy-LEDs-Online helped me out by providing everything we needed with great phone and email support and super fast shipping. Robert from Buy-LEDs-Online was not only very helpful, but said that he knew of Instructables and that he uses the site to determine what products he should carry. So, if you're looking for LEDs for your next project, I highly recommend getting them from Buy-LEDs-Online.This is not an advertisement and my opinions are unsolicited. These are the words of [www.instructables.com/member/noahw noahw], LED purchaser, Instructables Content Producer, and debutante extraordinair.

Update on Team Instructables in the Red Bull Creation Contest

Team Instructables participated in the Red Bull Creation Contest this past weekend: a harrowing 72 hours of intense building. We had an amazing and exhausting time, and are still recovering from lost sleep and too many energy drinks. See the original post about the build here. The build is over, but the contest is not! Voting starts July 25th. The contest hosts are collecting some media from every team, which will go on their website. But we thought you deserved the first look at what we made: Psycho Scooter Scramble the blind-driving electric wheelchair game Psycho Scooter Scramble is a game for four: two riders and two pilots. The trusting rider is strapped into an electric wheelchair, placing their life in the hands of a blindfolded pilot. The pilot controls the rider's careening wheelchair from the sidelines based on shouted headset commands from the rider. The basic mechanic is simple: players must drive across the court to get a ball from a stand, then drive back across to put the ball in a hoop. This action is repeated until all four balls have been scored or the timer runs out. However, since there is an inevitable disconnect between the pilots’ steering and their teammates’ intentions, wheelchairs zigzag across the court at high speeds, colliding with each other, ball stands, the scoreboard, and everything else, making full use of the custom steel bumpers and creating hilarious mayhem for the benefit of onlookers and players alike. It's kind of like this: (wonderful descriptive graphic by fjordcarver) I've uploaded our best gameplay (and a few build) photographs to this post. Here is a video of how it works:   More videos can be found on Instructables TV. Big thanks from the Instructables Build Team! Thanks also to our last-minute build helpers: Eric, Jessy, Matt, and Jake. We couldn't have done it without you. We really can't thank you enough for supporting us in this contest and in our build. Particularly on the last day, is our state of sleep deprivation and occasional desperation, we needed the emotional support of everybody in our Instructables community. (Special shout-out to fjordcarver for exceptional support over the LiveStream.) Final thought: This game is awesome. Win or lose, we're glad we did it, because there is truly no game in the world that is quite like Psycho Scooter Scramble. Also, we learned that you can get a sweet electric wheelchair on Craigslist for under $200, and have some idea how to hack it. And that knowledge is priceless. Look for an Instructable, coming soon, on how to make Psycho Scooter Scramble yourself! Starting July 25th, this project and those of the other 11 teams can be found here. Laugh, cry, enjoy, and remember to vote! If we win, we get to show this off at World Maker Fair in New York. (And yes, if you're there, you can play too.)

How we select Instructables Interns

Instructables has had a number of truly excellent interns including numberandom, fungus amungus, noahw, randofo, Tetranitrate, trebuchet03, reno_dakota, jessiep, and T3h_Muffinator. Our internships are primarily intended as a learning experience, and if I can't convince these awesome people to join Instructables full-time when they're ready, I'm still really happy when they find something better: Noahw and fungus amungus are now both on staff at Instructables, numberandom has joined the Squid Labs spin-out company Potenco, and randofo is a resident at Eyebeam. The rest of the crowd is still in school, but I'm certain they're also going to have impact.Choosing interns is tough, and we do it in a variety of methods. I've interviewed candidates, encouraged people I've worked with before or known for a long time to considering joining, reviewed peoples' work on the site through their Instructables, or through their resumes and portfolios. For example, I had never met, nor even spoken with, Tetranitrate and trebuchet03 before I sent them messages offering internship positions; I knew from their writing and the way they interacted on the site that they were people I wanted to work with. Conversely, in just half an hour of chatting, both noahw and numberandom impressed me enough that I wanted to work with them too. Much of what we do here is completely public (as evidenced by T3h_Muffinator's awesome intern journal entries). How someone behaves as a user is a pretty good indicator of how they'll behave as an intern. So, if you're thinking that you'd like to join us, one of the best things to do is to post a couple of great Instructables. If you're local, but aren't quite sure this is the thing for you, Tim is always looking for people to help him document. If you have a portfolio, try documenting a few of your projects on Instructables; if that doesn't work, send your portfolio along and we'll have a look. If you don't have a portfolio, make one (preferably on Instructables!). I think this is a fun place to work. There's always lots of good food, and, if the season is right, kitesurfing lessons.

Night Photos of Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch

Jonathan Haeber shot some inspiring night photos of Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch. Haeber gained access to Neverland somehow and shot many beautiful photos which are available on Flickr.Apparently Jackson's 2,500 acre children-only amusement park was up for auction tomorrow due to a debt of $24 million that Jackson was carrying on the land. Luckily (?) it was announced yesterday that Jackson was going to be able to save the ranch from auction.What's this got to do with Instructables? It's easy to see from the photos that just about everything in the Neverland Ranch is custom made and tailored specifically for the needs of Jackson and the children. Such craftsmanship, so unique, so well executed - could Michael Jackson be the ultimate Maker?via Laughing Squid

Climate Change Recalculated Talk with Saul Griffith

"It is not accurate to say we can still stop climate change," says Saul Griffith, the Bay Area inventor who received a MacArthur "genius" award in 2007. "We are now working to stop worse climate change or much-worse-than-worse climate change."Griffith has done the research and the math to figure out exactly what it will take for humanity to soften the impact of climate change in the next 25 years, and he lays it out in a dazzling presentation. It is horrifying news. The politics and technologies we have now are not up to the task.Friday, January 16, 2009Doors open 7:00pm, talk at 7:30pm lasting ~1.5 hoursLocated at Cowell Theatre in Fort Mason Center, San Francisco, CAhttp://www.longnow.org/

Instructables Podcast Vol. 1 - Build a Greener Life: Robbtoberfest

Part of Instructables' mission is to inspire our community to create and share great projects. We do this though contests, theme months, and challenges that are seasonally appropriate, part of a bigger cultural trend, or simply areas where we want to see more great Instructables. This year we've decided that our overarching theme will be "Green."To kick off our Green theme of 2009, comes the first in a series of podcasts from Instructables featuring just some of the outstanding projects and authors on the site. In this first episode, titled "A Greener Life," we talk to Instructables community member Robbtoberfest, whose eco-friendly projects represent exactly the kind of DIY green ingenuity we love to inspire and share at Instructables.

Instructables Build Day Turns into Pants-less Formal Friday

The last Friday of the month is Build Day at Instructables where everyone builds and documents projects (hence Noahw's flood of awesome slideshows!). My project today was to alter this really sweet Geoffrey Beene pin-striped suit I got at a consignment shop for cheap. The problem was that it was a size 42, so I needed both the pants and jacket taken in about 8 inches, which requires taking the sleeves off. Rachel agreed to help, and pretty soon I was running around the control tower still in my Formal Friday shirt and tie, but with the new pants on inside out as she tried to get them to fit. We didn't finish, and I'll post a full Instructable when we do, but for now I'll let the pictures tell the story...

3-D Baseball Card Webcam System

In an effort to bring baseball card trading into the 21st century, and aid falling revenues, playing card manufacturer Topps developed an interactive 3-D baseball card experience using specialized cards and a computer webcam."Since the 1950s, Topps has sold baseball trading cards filled with photos and stats, bringing the game to life. Now the company is bringing its cards to life.""Beginning Monday, collectors who hold a special Topps 3D Live baseball card in front of a webcam will see a three-dimensional avatar of the player on the computer screen. Rotate the card, and the figure rotates in full perspective. It's called 'augmented reality,' a combination of a real image with a virtual one."Webcam Brings 3-D to Topps Sports Cards The New York TimesTopps 3-D Live Toppstown.com

Giant crane arrives to help build new bay bridge

A 328 foot crane built by ZPMC near Shanghei, China capable of lifting 1800 tons at a time was brought into the Port of Oakland two weeks ago aboard a partially submersible transport ship. It is the largest marine crane to ever work on the west coast.I had been noticing the absolutely massive red white and blue crane on my commute over the bridge to work for a few days, but was unable to find any info on it. Thankfully a project associate from the Public Information Office of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge Seismic Safety Retrofit Projects was nice enough to email me back about my query with the relevant info. From there, it was easy to pick up the internet news trail.SF Gate Article - One big crane, coming upThe San Francisco Oakland Bay Bridge Project

Instructables Stickers are Multiplying

Squid Labs recently got a Roland 54" Printer/Cutter and we have been using it to print out the first round of Instructables stickers. Our initial batch was mailed out to the winners from the valentines day contest. Then, as we got the hang of how to use the crazy machine more appeared at the Instructables Show and Tell two weeks ago in Alameda, Austin and Boston. Now they are being sighted at the Port of Oakland and in Brooklyn, New York! It seems that our stickers like great views of city skylines, but I think they could be happy living just about anywhere. If you happen to see a sticker living in its "natural habitat", take a quick picture of it and post it up as a comment.If you would like a sticker, and don't have one, attend one of the Instructables Show and Tell events coming up, make a great instructable and get it into the Instructables News Letter, or send me a private message with your compelling story.

Eyeborg: Filmaker plans to install camera in prosthetic eyeball

"Take a one eyed film maker, an unemployed engineer, and a vision for something that's never been done before and you have yourself the EyeBorg Project. Rob Spence and Kosta Grammatis are trying to make history by embedding a video camera and a transmitter in a prosthetic eye. That eye is going in Robs eye socket, and will record the world from a perspective that's never been seen before."I'm hoping that the eyeball video camera will pave the way for more prosthetic eye hacks. I've want to embed a laser diode into a prosthetic eye for some time now, and just haven't had a candidate who will volunteer their eye.

62 Projects to Make with a Dead Computer

For the past two years I have been engaged in the wild world of print publication. I've seen fire and I've seen rain. I've seen... something something... that I thought would never end. And finally today I received the first copy of the book in the mail. After much hard work and anticipation, I present to you all 62 Projects to Make with a Dead Computer. This is the greatest book about computer repurposing that I ever wrote! I recommend that everyone should go out and buy a dozen copies for everyone they ever met. **Update** We celebrated Randy's amazing achievement this afternoon with pizza, apple juice, home made cookies and ice cream.  Randy's mother was nice enough to coordinate a surprise visit from "Dame Edna" who sang us a song and brought Randy a sweet dancing robot and some nice balloons. A good lunch was had by all.  Congratulations Randy! Photos appear below. Video coming soon! -noahw
