A personal record.

First of the month plus a Saturday plus a day to myself = sixty-nine species in 11 hours. That's a personal best (previous personal best = 73 species in two days). I'm wrecked, but pleased. If you're interested in the full list, check here. I think my favourite of the day was the Little Tern.

Have Any Good Stories to Share?

Got any interesting experiences you'd like to share? Scary? Happy? You get my point, right? Kind of like these:https://www.instructables.com/forum/Crazy-things-youve-done/https://www.instructables.com/forum/Driving-Stories/https://www.instructables.com/forum/Ever-saved-a-guys-life/Here's a scary experience I've had:. Some friends and I were bored so we took a walk to the fire station. We brought along some markers and cardboard and decided to kill time with some harmless Hijinks. We held up signs that said "Free Lemonade" with an arrow pointing in a random direction. People honked their car's horn or waved, it was all good and fun (We were in fifth grade BTW). About fifteen minutes in I hear screeching and my friend yells "RUN!". Not knowing what was happening, I look behind me and see a huge cloud of white smoke. We ditched the signs and booked it out of there. For a few seconds I didn't know what we were running from, but I could tell by the look on my friend's face it was bad. When I asked him later, he said that the guy driving the car looked pissed. He said the smoke was from the car pulling a hard U turn and accelerating towards us. We knew the car was chasing us so we ran into the bushes by the driveway of a cop's house. We heard a car coming up the driveway a few feet from us, and got really freaked out. We saw that it (thankfully) was the cop's patroll car. We ran up to him and told him about the car. He said he saw the smoke and called it in on the radio.

Customizing/personalizing plastic?

Hello! I'm giving my girlfriend a GBA SP AGS-101 for her birthday for when she studies abroad so she has something to do on train rides. I'm hoping to make the gift a little more personal by customizing the housing! I'm re-shelling my SP with a new black shell. To customize it, I want to either create the signature Twin Peaks chevron pattern on the SP, or engrave/paint this symbol on the front somehow. Any tips on how to do this most effectively and permanently?

Personal Locator Beacon

Hi all I've recently learned about PLBs and EPIRB, which basically send distress signals with position information from the device built-in GPS. They can be relatively expensive, so I'm wondering if anyone has made any work towards a home-brew device? Legal Disclaimer: haha, homebrew is a poor term. These devices need to be registered etc., so it's not recommended ( and actually unsafe) to build your own device. What I'm looking for is education on how these things work and general pointers on how to approach the designing  of such a  device.

Ponoko - personal manufacturing platform

I was lucky enough to have David and Derek from Ponoko over to my house for Thanksgiving (all the way from New Zealand!). Ponoko is a personal manufacturing business, and is something I've been dreaming about for years. You can design a product, have it custom built using precision machines, like laser cutters, and if lots of people like it, they can buy it too. If you don't have access to a laser cutter, this is one of the best ways to see what you can do and try one out. For inspiration, you can check out How to make a laser cut lamp, which I encouraged them to post. It not only shows a cool lamp, but goes through the design process and using Ponoko's service.So, check out their service and tell us what you think. The Ponoko guys are here on Instructables, and would love to hear your feedback.

Making a personal game system

So everyone and their grandma has posted and made articles for how to make a "universal game system" that emulates the actual hardware of a console on something like a raspberry pi. But my question is this: is it plausible/possible to create your own, unique, personal gaming console? I mean something that doesn't emulate, but rather is an entirely different system (not an NES or Sega, it's a "You-console"!). I understand some criticisms for this: "Why re-invent the wheel? Or at least the console...", "This is too complicated...", "You're stupid" and etc. etc. My reasoning for this is this: Why not? Heck, what a niffty thing to have under your belt to say "Hey, I developed my own game system and make my own games for it! I'm cool!" So what do you guys think? Is it possible? Has someone done it? If not, you guys have any pointers on what to do? I'd like to do it, but I'm not too electronically edj-imukated. Maybe it'll be something I tackle in the future, but I'd like your input first! :)

Anybody fancy making a fingerprint-reading doorbell, that gives out different rings/does different things depending on who it is?

BooHoo Previous Comment Persons

​Hello,  Reading some of instructables comments necessitates me to comment on you! I find Instructables as having interesting content which has appeal to a variety of people  regardless of their mental capacities.  Items portrayed on the site are creations of every class of people. Having a special talent, each of them feeling a little pride, bravely present their subject matter with instructions,  pictures, videos, FAQ, help? and their names are printed on the website. Speaking to the big shots who know it all.  This is not a specific website geared to the most intelligent humans like yourselves.  If it looks like a project for a 5 year old---it probably is! Clever mistake observers, nice of you to point it out.  Did you fail at the project?  Did you do something wrong?  If after you check yourself and it happens that you are right.  Why not have a little consideration, call or email Instructables, insuring the situation is clarified by the important people involved.  You would be saving the embarrassment, ridicule and self-esteem of an individual, or didn't you think of that? Instructables your website is unique, interesting, educational, subject matter is something about anything! The site has helped me babysit, fight boredom, release stress and laugh hysterically!
