Cracker placing machine

Hello I have for some time tried to come up with the design for making a machine that can place crackers (like "TUC") in a straight line.  I tried to place Carcassonne tiles in a stack with a hole, so one tile could slide down, but the weight of the other tiles makes this impossible to do. To this I thought of placing a continuous track under the cracker stack, but I would prefer to keep this simple.  The design of the machine could be like a trundle wheel, with a squared pipe for the crackers.  The idea: http://i.imgur.com/WAP3wgI.png I know the machine might sound very odd, but I hope that you can help me create this.  Thank you

Some Supply places....

I had made a few knives in my day, and one sword (long long ago, and no, I don't still have it). One of the places that has been around for awhile that has a good selection of supplies AND kits (for the beginner up to the master smith) is the Texas Knife Maker's Supply storeAnother place that looks good, although I have never dealt with them is the MidWest Knife Makers supply I also came across a place to get a Sheffield's Supply Catalog on line. And then there is always the Jantz Supply site. I hope these prove to be useful to you.

Is there a place to request an Instructable?

Is there a section on Instructables where you can suggest projects for someone to make?  Example, I would love to find an Instructable for a DIY wireless dog fence.  (searched -no luck). I am sure there is someone out there who can make one of these.  Or there are folks out there who have the smarts and would love to see what people would like to have.

For those in "a dark place"

We seem to be attracting a number of troubled souls at the moment.Without wanting to reject any cries for help outright, most people here are ill-equipped to offer useful, non-judgemental advice.If you are reading this in the UK, may I recommend The Samaritans?I have had personal experience of their services when trying to help a close friend who tried to commit suicide, and I found them to be clear, rational people with a far better understanding of the depressed or teenage mind than I do.Their website is http://www.samaritans.orgTheir email address is jo@samaritans.orgTheir phone number in the UK is 08457 90 90 90Their phone number in the ROI is 1850 60 90 90If you are not in the UK/ROI then they recommend using http://www.befrienders.org/ to find similar help and advice in your country.As I said, this is not meant as a rejection - we will help if we can - but there are people infinitely better at providing suitable, non-judgemental, anonymous advice.If any American readers know of similar organisations in the US, please add links to their websites.

Friends in high places

Evening all, Following on from what Jessy has already said, I'd just like to weigh in with my own views on life at Instructables and the company's decisions to work in cahoots with Autodesk. I've been an Artist in Residence at Instructables now for two weeks, and they've been an amazing two weeks. The atmosphere in the lab is the sort of laid-back but productive work environment you can only find among people who really love what they do. They work, they play, they somehow produce an awesome, widely-loved website. And now it looks like a big, grown-up company has decided that the site's awesome too. As far as I can tell, that's a good thing. Everyone at the Instructables lab seems genuinely, if cautiously, optimistic about what the new regime will mean for the company. A bigger company can provide more resources, taking some of the load of the team's shoulders so they can introduce new features and more extravagant contests. At the lab, there haven't been any changes. Everyone's still doing the same jobs they were doing a week ago and, yes, yesterday afternoon we were still up on the same roof, shooting shaving cream at the same intern. All is as it should be. Instructables is run by a small tightly-knit team of makers, so I think there were a few concerns about how Autodesk might try to warp the company to fit it into a standard, corporate mold. So far, Autodesk has been doing a good job of putting those concerns to rest. The success of Instructables is deeply tied up with its staff being a flexible little troupe of amiable nutcases and the managers at Autodesk seem to appreciate that. They know as well as we all do that if they mess with the winning formula, they'll only screw things up. Instructables is built on its community (that's you, reading this) and the community won't put up with any changes that make the site a worse place to spend time. If they try to screw the site up, you lot will rebel. If they try to make us wear ties, Randy will rebel. Their plan seems to be to nurture and support the site with funds, people and expertise while interfering relatively little with how it actually runs. We've been over to the local Autodesk offices to meet up with some of their employees and they seemed like a bunch of overenthusiastic, slightly geeky maker types. Which is to say, they seemed just like the rest of the gang here at Instructables and, as far as I can tell, just like much of the Instructables community. They're people who like to make things. A lot of them have been using Instructables for years. As a company to work alongside, they seem like a good fit. It will be very interesting to see where the site goes from here, but my gut feeling is that it will keep on doing the same things it's always done, just more so. Hopefully that's something we can all look forward to.

A good place to start from

Help a newbie out, what should I look at first? I recently became very interested in the concept of Knex weaponry, and I want to build an Arsenal of Freedom for myself. However, I am unsure of which designs are better than others, or whose designs are the top of the line. Would any of you be so kind to send me links to some of the better instructables/models out there? Accesory instructions are also appreciated. I'm looking for grenades and a wide variety of guns, but I want optimized designs over all else. I leave my fate to the rest of you. P.S. While proficient with Knex, I am a tad rusty, so if an instructable is straightforward and simple to understand, all the better.

2 Different dreams in the same place?

I just realized that I had a dream this morning in the same location... twice. By that, I mean (in a gaming sort of fashion) you started playing a game, then halfway through, your mom called you and you had to save your progress. You then resume to your most recent progress in the game and continue playing. It felt something like that, and I can't explain how that happened (also given that I had the first one weeks ago). Out of curiosity, has anyone else experienced such a thing? And if so, what are they called (if at all)? ***It's been a while since I've done anything in Instructables lately.
