"CUZ IM" Script Plz?

Well, I heard about a few scripts to make your browser not show K'nex projects, etc. I was wondering if Zachninme, (I think you made them), could make one to hide the "CUZ IM" comments perhaps? Ooh, btw, how do you apply those scripts?

A site pretty much cloning Instructables

Eric's Big Idea!

Ads and such usually appear off to the side of forum pages, and instructables, most are scams (haha), but occasionally they are something worth checking into.Below is the ad I saw on the side of a forum topic, and decided to follow it.I got the address for Big Think, which is, from what I gathered, a plethora of ideas for many different things to better the nation.Below is Eric Wilhelm talking about Instructable's impact on education.LINKBTW, there is a typo on the second link..:D

Is it possible to make your own business card? I'd like one for my tiny cleaning business. Answered

How can i make a cool business card that still looks professional?  I have a very small cleaning business, it's just me, my clients ask me for business cards quite often but I'm loathe to buy 500 at a time and have a boring old regular type of card. I know the talent on instructables is endless so is there anyone out there who has a cool idea for a business card that folks will actually want to keep? I'd like colourful, average size and fits in a wallet and preferably made with household stuff. the supplies I'd like to use include acrylic paints, printer paper, glue, maybe watercolour paper, etc. I don't have a printer :( Thanks

DIY Coilgun very pretty, not so deadly

Want to scare someone with a pretty frightening looking gun? This DIY coilgun will get that job done.

(42 gram projectiles).It's a single stage gun, using a 8800uF capacitor bank with max 400v (704J).Max shot efficiency is 2.8% but reaches almost 4% at lower voltages.Charge time for 300v (12J kinetic energy 396J capacitor bank) is 8 seconds for the mains connection, and when using the internal batteries about 90 seconds. It also has a Digital voltage display.Coil overheat after 14 shots at 300v.Total weight: 5 kilogram.Total spend: ~ 100 EuroConstruction time: ~40 Hrs DIY Coilgun via engadget

I saw this yesterday and thought it was pretty COOL...

I went out to the car yesterday at around mid-day and saw what I THOUGHT was the light of the sun refracting off the trunk lid of my car......I WAS WRONG.     I looked up into the nearly cloudless (except in one area) sunny sky, and saw two large clouds "near" each other; with a HUGE bright rainbow in between them. This is the first time I have EVER seen a rainbow in a sunny, rainless, snowless day. Below is a Close up and a normal sized picture of the bow.     In the second picture, there is a speck up there,  that is a crow, IIRC.

Lack of Best Answers, it's getting pretty bad...

  Have you checked the answers page lately? Take a look at the first page, I don't see a whole lot of Best Answers marked there. Not a big deal, most of them are fairly recent. Try checking the 2nd and 3rd.I don't see very many at all...  They've been there for a few days, surely at least half should be answered. I understand that not all questions asked can be fairly answered, due to being an opinion, or just a question that doesn't need a best answer, like "What's you favorite food?" Please, if you are reading this, and recently asked a qeustion, go back and read them. If you find something that answers your question, by all means select it as Best Answer, otherwise you are wasting their time. ( "their" meaning the people who answered your question, apparently "answerer's" isn't a word.) Don't take this as a rant, because it certainly isn't, I'm just trying to speak on the behalf of all the people who take time to answer the community's questions. Thanks.

Fan made Iron Man suit is pretty freakin' great

Anthony Le is such a fan of Iron Man that he built his own War Machine outfit. Based on concept sketches from before Iron Man 2 hit theaters, Le's suit has a motorized faceplate that flips up and down and a spinning Gatling gun on his shoulder. It's an amazing build and took Le a month to make at a cost of $4,000. Great job! Le, a fitness consultant, studied some concept sketches of the suit posted on the Internet. He used thin, high-impact urethane for the armor, cutting it into plates and joining them with some 1,500 rivets and washers. He sculpted a clay helmet mold and then used a liquid resin mix to create the final product. But that was just cosmetic work. He also added a small servo motor that opens the faceplate, as in the movie, and built a gun out of pipes and a motor. LEDs in the eyes and chest-plate further add to the illusion. You Built What?! A Real Iron Man Suit

My computer can't run pretty much... anything. What's wrong?

I am on an older computer, older CPU, older processor, etc., but it's run perfectly for about 10 years now. Suddenly, it shut itself down and started up again. Now, my computer is incapable of starting basic programs (all of which on Steam) that ran perfectly before. The computer will display the hourglass and the app shadow, like it's soon going to open, for about 1/5 of a second, then it reverts back to nothing. I waited 40 minutes -- not seconds, forty full MINUTES -- for Fallout Shelter (one of the most basic Steam games in existence) to load before I gave up. My sister's friend decided to hit a bunch of buttons, and I'm pretty sure that it screwed SOME stuff up, but it seems unlike such a trusty computer to suddenly give up on me. I have, like, 40 anti-virus, anti-malware, etc. apps on this computer, so I doubt anything will get through all of the sieves undetected. Also, the computer-saur that I'm using is an HP Pavilion Elite HPE-400f PC with a single-core, 3.0 GHz processor, and a relatively new graphics card. So, give it to me straight, doc; is she gonna make it? What can I do?

Spiral Clocks tell time with ball

These clocks tell the time by the position of a ball that slowly spirals in to the center and then gets dropped back down to start all over again. Pretty clever. Also pretty hard to read, but it's certainly a conversation piece and a good inspiration for some other projects. Link

How do i keep my pretty polished pennies pristine from precipitation?

Heya, experts! Short version: freshly polished pennies need to be able to remain bright and shiny after being left out in the rain for one night. Explanation:  We celebrate virtually every holiday in our family, and tomorrow is St Patricks's Day.  It's become a tradition for the kids to "discover" a trail of brightly shined pennies that lead out to some freshly planted shamrocks and other new plants, with a few brightly polished gold dollars underneath.  It's nothing grand, but it's fun to sneak out to plant a little evidence in the garden. This year will see heavy rain and general unpleasantness (SF Bay Area), and every year the pennies that get some water exposure will have dark spots where the water sat.  Lately it seems that i've made some bad calls on impromptu fixes, so i'm putting my question out to the more knowledgeable community here.  Would a little WD40 likely keep tonight's heavy rains from spotting the coins?  Does anyone have any suggestions that would probably work better? Any thoughts our ideas would be appreciated, if just to keep silly little traditions going.  ;-) Cheers!  - A Dad Who's About To Get His Yearly Thumb Blister From Polishing Pennies With A Jewelry Cloth

Meat Ship Sets Sail

If you're planning on eating several pounds of sausage and bacon you might as well get some friends over and make a boat out of it, right? Yeah, sure.We have an Instructable for making placemats out of bacon and bacon soap, but this is pretty epic in comparison. This is all great if you're into bacon. Which I'm not. It's one of my least favorite things to eat and I find this to be pretty disgusting, but I hear that I'm pretty much on my own for that opinion. Most everyone else finds it delicious. MeatShip

Get into PCB creation? Answered

Well I just realized over the past few weeks that I really need to start getting onto the PCB bandwagon and start manufacturing my own stuff...  So... I need materials and instructions on how to make my own PCBs... I have copper boards already (sourcing them is not a problem...), and i am pretty good at designing boards in EAGLE (I find it fun), but I need a method of etching them.... I have tried many toner methods and they never work how I like, I always get some pretty big mistakes and etching them sucks...  I have heard of photo resist methods, and it sounds wonderful because it has a pretty good accuracy and can go down to some pretty fine wiring... My only problem is that you have to get presensitized boards (Expensive!), as well as other chemicals... As for etching, I think I am fine, I have used a vinegar/salt/something combo and it works pretty well, just takes a while to etch.. I have some muratic acid but that stuff is nasty so I have never really tried that.. Anybody have any non-toner PCB creation process that is pretty inexpensive? (I am in high school and have a limited budget already...)
