Login Problem

I login on the front page, then go into an instructable, say the valentines day contest winners, and it'll have me logged back out again! I am using the latest version of firefox, and windows 7 home premium. As far as i'm aware, I'm accepting cookies from www.instructables.com (is there a way to check?). I haven't done or clicked anything to disable them.

Circuit Problem? Answered

Hey guys i just made this circuit ( pic provided ), The problem is when i  clap the led that indicates the circuit is off turns off (power goes to the relay coil) but  the circuit off indicator led turns back on after a few sec and the relay does turn on at all. (Yes the relay works) And another thing I observed is that when i take the coil wires off and attach them to an led instead of relay it works correctly and the led stays on till i clap again to turn the circuit off.

Search problems

Ever since the front page was redone with the current version I have a harder time searching for things, like if I search for "orrery" I get 4 results, none of which are https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Build-a-Paradox/  also for as long as I've tried to use it, the mobile site search results are horrendous. it finds tons of 'ibles that aren't even remotely related to what I've searched for, or match one word of my query at best. what gives?

Pi Problems

I am trying to write a program that calculates pi. I am doing it in Visual C++. I am using the Gregory-Leibniz series. My problem is that I cannot figure out how to do the division necessary. It isn't returning decimals. For example, 4/3 returns 1, and 1/2 is returning 0. Is it even possible to get it to return decimals? I've tried using int, float and short as the answer variable and none worked.

Problems loggin in

I love Instructables but I am constantly having problems logging in.   I reset my password and it shows me logged in but I can't download pdf files.  It will just flip screens and keeps asking me to login again.    I clean my computer's cookies and cache and sometimes this helps but it seems to me that Instructable has a problem because I don't have this problem with any other websites I use.  Whenever I clean my computer, I then have to re-enter everything to all the other sites which is a real pain. This has been going on for a long time....at least a year.   Will this ever be fixed?  Any other suggestions?  Thanks.
