Office Instructables

I am looking for the best and the brightest to help me find the top instructables for making my office life easier. I work in cubicles on the ground floor with no windows, institution gray walls, and fluorescent lights. The building contains no plants and nothing else of interest. I'm looking for anything that keeps us from going crazy.  So far, I've decided to make these: www.instructables.com/id/Self-Watering-Plant-Container-out-of-a-2-liter-bot/ and these: www.instructables.com/id/Recycle-lamp-shade/   Hope to get some awesome responses from you all!  Thanks,  McAfee15

Freeware Office for Macs?

We just got a iMac 20" with 2.6GHZ processor. It's an awesome machine, but it doesn't have any office software. I downloaded and tried Open Office, but to no avail, it isn't seem to like it (even the Mac version). I also tried installing Abiword(.exe) but it didn't open it correctly (kept trying to open it in text edit). Any help? I need to get at least some office software going before I'm gone, a relation of mine is in need of it for college... Thanks! A Person Completely New To Macs RocketScientist2015

Microsoft Office for Linux

I heard last week that Microsoft will be porting their popular Office suite to Linux this year. As an avid Linux user, and a firm believer in the free software movement, I must say that this has a certain odor to it. Do we honestly think that a company that has used phrases like "a cancer that infects everything it touches," to describe Linux will just start waving the olive branch and cater to the "cancer" as a valued customer? This peace offering calls to mind a certain wooden horse I think we all know. "either the Greeks are hiding, shut inside those beams, or the horse is a battle-engine, geared to breach our walls, spy on our homes, come down on our city, overwhelm us- or some other deception's lurking deep inside it. Trojans, never trust that horse. Whatever it is, I fear the Greeks, especially bearing gifts." One thing is for sure, considering how Microsoft constantly violates the privacy of their customers, rest assured that this horse WILL spy on our homes.

Something to block office lighting?

The office building where I work has a conference room that has 4 fluorescent light units, each measuring 28” by 44”.  The problem is, one of the four light units is an emergency unit, and is always turned on.  So when we want to show power point presentations, etc.  the room is never  fully dark.  With the 3 lights being off, it’s just barely dark enough, and it would be so much better not to have the light from the emergency unit.  Due to safety codes, turning off this light is not a realistic option for us.  So I was examining it today and was wondering if someone had an idea to construct some sort of temporary “cover” that we can quickly and securely place over this one light unit while we have our power point presentations?  The cover would have to be lightweight, secure (we would not want it to fall on any clients!), and I think made of some sort of fireproof material, in case someone forgets it’s up there and the heat from the florescent light tubes doesn’t cause any danger of fire.  Each light unit has this metal “grid” that I guess is meant to reflect and disperse the light in an efficient way.  This “grid” is made up of smooth 1/8” metal strips, which create 24 empty space “cells”. The inside of the cells measures 7”X5.5” and is 2.75” deep.  There is a small clearance between this metal grid and the fluorescent tube lights.  And the light unit is 10 feet off the ground. Any suggestions??  Thanks!

(Romantic) Post Office Art

After seeing hay_jumper's post office art and revenge of the post office art instructables, I decided to give it a whack. Just so proper respect is given where due please note that l read hay's instructables once and remembered the ideas several months later that's how awesome this idea is.I wanted to make a creative valentine's card for a special friend who happens to be very very talented at all that creative stuff that I tend to suck at. I figured the best way to impress her was to FAKE IT!I basically copied what hay did except l most importantly used a heart-shaped fence to make a specific shape and a (much) smaller stylus than his second project. The pictures should explain most of this madness. The stylus was made with two square layers of foam i cut and PLENTY of glue (in between layers as well as in/around pencil holes.Aftermath: I decided to send it anonymously and she called the middle man (who I used to add further anonymity as well as shipping time) and told her how awesome it was and asked for my phone number. THIS SHIT WORKS, GENTLEMEN. TAKE NOTE!

Can someone build a handheld label applicator (specifically for barcodes) and post a "How To" instructable.

There are only a few companies that make handheld label applicators and they seem to be of similar design and quite expensive. I'd like to know if there is a creative individual out there capable of making a simple DIY version that the "average" person could build on their own.

Going postal!

We had a parcel delivered today (somebody has been buying shoes again).  When I opened the door to the courier, he handed me the gadget to sign for the parcel, glanced up, and said Oh! Instructables! I was, of course, wearing my robot t-shirt. He was busy, so our chat was necessarily brief, but he admitted to being a member, but using the site as more of a spectator sport than a resource.  In his words; "My god, what have they built now??" It is quite peculiar to find the places where I find fans of the site, and where I don't.  I have been a supply teacher for the last couple of years, and I reckon I've met a couple of thousand high school kids in that time.  I typically wear a Robot pin badge, and occasionally it gets recognised by kids.  They've typically been using the site as a resource for their own hobbies, mainly in three areas - making knives, building K'NEX guns or cosplay costumes. In that same time, I've met dozens of teachers of the kinds I would expect to be big fans of Instructables - DT ("shop") and Science teachers, but only one Science teacher (if he's reading this, hello Cliff!) had heard of the site (he used it to build a set of video game cabinets), and none of the DT teachers had (a situation I quickly fixed). That's it really, just making a couple of observations, unless you'd like to mention the oddest time you encountered an instructabler or instructables reference? Oh, and I forgot to ask the courier what his user name is, so, if you delivered a pair of shoes to a chap in a navy Robot t-shirt, please let me know.

Clever, inexpensive shelves and storage built under attic sloping roofs?

I have my office in an attic, with long sloping ceilings. The space under the slope is wasted, and ends up being a catch-all for junk. I'd like a clever and inexpensive way to built custom shelves that make the best use of the triangular space (drawers on the bottom that use the full length to the edge, for tripods, boompoles, etc.) I'd love something that includes a concealed pegboard for cables.

Mini Weapons of Mass Destruction 2

Toy inventor John Austin released Mini Weapons of Mass Destruction 2 (Chicago Review Press) this past October. This awesome sequel to the Mini Weapons series includes over 30 new mini weapons with which to terrorize your office with. Here's an excerpt from the press release: "All the projects in Mini Weapons of Mass Destruction 2 are built from inexpensive, commonly kept items: binder clips, playing cards, rubber bands, markers, clothespins and discarded packaging materials. The projects - modeled after real-life gadgetry - range from "sidearms" and "weapons in disguise" to "villain mini weapons" and "surveillance and intel" and cost mere pennies to assemble. This easy-to-follow primer also features plans to construct periscopes, bionic ears, grappling hooks and code wheels. plus, each project includes a supply and tool list, italicized safety tips and step-by-step instructions supplemented by clearly marked, illustrative diagrams" I managed to get my hands on a copy and made the Grappling Hook Gun; the project was easy to follow and my project came together in under 30 minutes (including the time it took to snap a few pictures). My grappling hook went about 20 feet and I'm sure it could travel further with a few minor tweaks! So if you're reading this while sitting bored at your desk, take a look around you. If you're surrounded by un-used rubber bands, pen caps, and markers, perhaps it's time for you to assemble your own office supply arsenal! For Authors outside Canada, USA, UK and Australia The first 3 comments left here with a picture of your own version of an office supplies mini weapon of any type will receive a free copy of this book! All books have been claimed!

Office blind corner traffic light. Answered

I have this idea for a little project/gizmo and I don't really know where to begin. my office is at an intersection that people have a tendency to run into each other at. What I'd like is a simple little circuit that will have some sort of motion/proximity sensors, two, one each looking down one side of this corner. Two LEDs each look down one of the two sides of the corner. The idea would be that if both sensors detect motion (within 10-15feet of the corner) the led would light or blink for a second or two. So if one person is approaching the corner nothing happens, but if people are approaching the corner from both sides the LED would alert them so they won't run into each other. Ideally I'd like this to be powered by a small photo voltaic. I'm thinking that I could have some cap that charges from the PV, and discharges into the circuit a few times a second. This way it could just be hung there at the corner and forgotten about. Ideas??? Update: While a mirror would seem like the most obvious solution the way the offices are arranged at my corner there isn't really a place to hang a mirror. I've even stuck a car blind spot mirror on the small space between two of the office doors across the way from my door. That way at least I can check for traffic when I step outside my office.  This is kind of an idea splinter and I need to make it so I can get it out of my head. (I hope I'm not the only one who gets mind splinters. Like a song stuck in your head it is an idea that you just have see realized or it will just sit there in your mind forever.)

Liquid nitrogen at the doctor

No real point to this but I wanted to post anyways because it is kinda cool.  Went to the doctors office with my wife today because she had this spot on her ear that was bothering her.  Well the doctor wanted to freeze it with liquid nitrogen to get rid of it.  Well of course my ears perked right up because to be honest this was going to be the same time I was even in the same room as this *cool* stuff.  I asked her to pack some up for me to take home.  She laughed and said she wished she could but did not have anything to transport it with.  But she brought in a styrofoam cup about half full of it.  She used a quetip to apply it to the spot on the ear three times.  Then handed me the cup and said "I know the geek inside you wants to play with it.".  Our doctor knows us well.  But the bummer part was that I did not have anything to put in it.  So since the only thing I had to freeze was myself I put the quetip on my finger.  ......Yes this hurt.  But it was still fun.  Then I was left to just watch it boil and then blow on it once in a while.  But when we were leaving I handed the cup back to her since I figured I could not leave with it and it was almost gone anyways.  Then she said something she liked to do with it was to pour it on the floor.  I was pretty cool to watch the "fog" it kicked up and listen to the floor crackle. Anyways, that is my story of the day.  I did not get to do much with it, but it was still *cool*.
