Instructables Plugin for WordPress

I published a plugin for WordPress that allows you to display projects by username or keyword with options to limit the number of projects, include thumbnails and a few other options that link back to Instructables. If you were to use this on a website what other features would you want included?   1. I'm thinking an alternate layout with thumbnails and titles only that link back to Instructables. 2. Stats? Maybe

Does anyone know of a Instructables-like plugin to post DIY type content on WordPress(.org)?

Hi there,Sometimes I have content that wouldn't be suitable or fit well within, and that I know won't be featured or be appreciated here. Does anyone know of an Instructables-like Plugin (or theme) for WordPress(.org) to create long format DIY or Tutorial like content? Specially when it comes to dividing into steps (and being able to easily link to those steps), being able to reorganize steps, and designed to handle a large amount of images linked to those steps. The text boxes on top of images would just be the cherry on top, but I don't expect any plugin to be able to do that.Anyway, just asking since it would be nice to know.

Is there a program or plugin that will create a playlist to fit a specified time?

I'm looking for something that can create a playlist from a selection of mp3s to get something close to a given time slot. For example, I plug in 15 minutes, and it comes up with 5 songs that will play for a total of 14:52, or 6 different songs that play for 15:12. Does such a program exist? I tried Googling, but couldn't come up with a good search phrase. A plugin for WMP11 would be ideal (yes, I still use WMP).

Firefox almost useless after latest updates!?

I just had to restart and with that came the update for FF.Right after a nice info bar letting me know that a plugin no longer works.Bit weird as the auto update is active for my plugins but a look won't hurt...As it turns out every single one of my plugins is disabled now and it is not possible to just enable them either.All that is possible is "looking for updates or alternatives" - what a joke!You want to get your ad-blocker working and with the click of a button you get browser bars, weather infos, networks stats but nothing that would even come close to ad-blocking.My favourite image download is now suggested to be replaced with an addon to show me Email notifications or as an alternative to give me quick access to my bookmarks - WTF!?Is it possible that some of our code monkey now also work for Mozilla? - No offence, just kidding!!

Is it possible to add voice effects to outgoing VOIP calls?

The subject line pretty much says it all... I'm intrigued by the idea of prank calling my friends by processing my voice through audio effects (i.e. - using VST/AU plugins). I'm not even sure if this is possible, but it seems like there must be a way. I think illformed's Glitch plugin ( ) would be perfect for something like this. Any tips on how to hook this up? FYI: I normally make VOIP calls via my MacBook Pro, and I have Audio Hijack and a plethora of software effects installed already. However, I'm open to any and all suggestions - even if they can't be done with my existing setup. Thanks!

Flippin Open Source Rant

I'm hate open source today!! It started out so easy, too. Download a free script based avi editor called Avisynth? Ok. Try to save the output of your newly edited avi file? Who the bleep knows how? Well, try to install a plugin instead. Download and stick in the plugins folder. Doesn't work. Scrounge around forums looking for a quick answer. Nothing. I read in the readme file somewhere that I need to download a C++ API to get a certain plugin working. OK, go to the website for the API. There's a cryptic list of file names with no descriptions. I pick one at random and download that. Wrong one. I pick a different one. Seems to be the right one. Good. Oh wait, the readme for the plugin says I need to download GCC and run the file to compile the stupid plugin. WHY THE FLIPPIN CRAP DIDN"T YOU FETCHIN POST THE STUPID BINARY!?!?! Get frustrated. Rant here. I really feel like cussing. Stupid GPL. A gazillion versions of open software posted all the time, all on the same page with mountains of text to read through just to try and find which version you need for your OS. Stupid Programmers. Don't know the purpose of a good user interface if it hit them in their blocky heads. AND THEN YOU HAVE TO DOWNLOAD A FRIGGIN COMPILER TO COMPILE THE CRAP YOU JUST DOWNLOADED--THEN FIGURE OUT HOW THE COMPILER WORKS--THEN FIND OUT THE LATEST VERSION OF THE COMPILER HAS A BUG THAT PREVENTS THE stupid thing from compiling. Does every open source programmer assume everyone that uses their stuff is a software engineer? I GUESS SO! AHHHHHHHHH! Linux will never beat windows. Stupid OS. I'm going to buy a freakin MAC with OS X. Then I can run my darn batch files from a terminal AND have a frickin stable GUI. Oh wait, I'd have to sell some blood plasma to afford a frickin' Mac. Great. Can't even run a useful batch file under Windows. Back to the GPL crap and Linux. *sigh* I should have bought Quicktime Pro months ago . . . or killed a rich uncle and inherited his fortune so I could buy programs that work and pay someone to maintain them on my system.

Is there a way to hardwire this LED kit into the house wiring that is already present?  NOT where an old fixture was, this will be all new wiring.  Thank you. Even sources that might help me would be appreciated.

Minecraft Server connection problem

Hello fellow minecrafters, I recently downloaded and ran a server.exe. That worked great. I then downloaded minecraft server.jar, and used a .bat file to run it. That worked just fine. After that I ran the server.jar, and used bukkit and added some plugins. It worked phenomenally.  Until I decided to install the physical shop plugin, (which allows users to use chests to make shops.)  I installed it and ran the server, then when I went to login to the server via minecraft. It got stuck on the login, and either it stopped working, or it would give me a screen similar to the failed to login: bad login screen. But it had a file directory for a random file, and some extra HTML code under it. I completely reinstalled minecraft, and even deleted the .minecraft folder. It also may help to know that I used the manual download for the 1.6 update which was provided in 1.5.2. But now I have no idea how to get to the real 1.6 launcher. So, if anyone has had this experience. Or they know of a solution, or can direct me to an article or someone that can. It would be much appreciated. Thanks.
