Hi, Is there any chance of any Instructable competitions that *anyone* can win? The last 3 competitions that were run were all "US and Canada only". Come on Instructables. Throw us Europeans (amongst others) a bone...

NASA wants to find some special people to pay to lie in a bed for 90 days straight. No moving about, no getting up, just lying there awake for 16 hours and sleeping for 8 hours a day. If you can handle it and this even sounds somehow appealing to you, NASA will pay you $17,000 for it. That's $1,000 a week since there are periods for tests and recovery.The goal is to see what effect microgravity has on the human body. It also sounds like some new form of torture.Don't have 17 weeks to spare? Then maybe the 41 day study is for you. Then again, that study requires you to be on a human centrifuge for an hour a day for 21 days. Yikes! Bed Rest Study Artificial Gravity Project

OK so i bought the minty boost and everything worked fine until it burned up but now i know its cuz i had the bateries in it when i put it in a metal altoids tine and shorted it. The n bought another one thinking that it was my wiring that burned it up well the same thing happend. SO i spent about 40$ by now and want a to charge my ipod. But i want to do it with AA AAA not 9V. Any easy way to do this with out a big parts list (like tha minty boos) also i have no idea how to ahead of time know if it is Decherging the batteries when i connect it to my ipod or how good the charge is. Any one know how to tell? Or make one like I descirbed??!!

Hell no! I will never give up Instructables! However, I am getting far too addicted to Instructables and I cannot concentrate on my projects... So I need to take a break from instructables, that means I will be inactive for a while, maybe about a week or two.. I will begin being inactive when it passes 12:00 AM in San Fransisco.So, bye to everyone who likes me... ;-(UPDATE:I am back!

I'm fed up I cant enter some contests like the 30-second video contest just because I'm not resident of the US nor Canada. I live in Spain, and when I see a contest I like, it says its only for US and Canada residents. I understand that its easier for Instructables to send the price withing America, but the sending taxes are not so high for them to be a reason of not sending the price. While I was reading the contest rules for the 30-second video I had ideas for 4 different entries. But I'm not going to bother doing them if I'm going to be thrown out of the contest the first day because of my nationality. I think contests should be something international, where everyone could win. That is the spirit of this new era, the internet era. With sites as this one, youtube, facebook, one can really feel as part of the international comunity, where every one, no matter age or race, can be someone. But of course, this "feeling"Â· of being part of something bigger end by the moment one reads "This contest is limited to legal residents of the United States and Canada, age 18 or older at the time of entry." (I understand the age problem for legal reasons). So, I ask to the team of Instructables to be considerant and to think of all the people living outside the US and Canada that could have a good idea or ideas for any kind of contest. Thanks for all Juanviperea.

For instance, Rnd 4 doesn't give all of the details. What happened to Rnds 5-10? The beard and mustache rounds aren't complete. Do I have to buy the complete pattern?

Heya! I'm making a project that involves precision timing but I ran into a problem. I when I press a button the Arduino registers many '1's'. But in my code I want it to only see the first input and ignore the rest until the pin goes low again. I'm not trying to debounce or anything. Thanks!

One room in the house we smoke, but when a window is opened all the smoke is sucked through the ac ducts to the main intake which is in a hallway right outside all the bedrooms. I believe this is because the room is generally ~10 degrees warmer than the main part of the house which the hallway is off of because it is a large, open area which is less insulated because of a vaulted ceiling and many large windows. I am looking for a way to seal the room off from the rest of the house without disabling the functionality of the AC/Heater. I've found this HVAC Damper which I think could work, but it's a bit pricey, and it's supposed to be hooked up to a controller unit, so I don't know if there's a way to hook it up to either the fan or thermostat so it just opens when the AC/Heater/Fan is on, and the closes after. I had also been thinking about building a box with a large, one-way valve, but the only design I can think of is a bit beyond my fabrication abilities. Any help, hints, or suggestions would be appreciated, thanks.

Dear Instructables Community, I am trying to create the following LED circuit for a school project and would be grateful for any help. I would like to create a circuit containing a grid (see attached image) with 2 rows of LEDs in 3 columns. In this circuit, pressing an input button must move the "LIGHT ON" signal from 1 LED to the very next LED on the circuit in the following manner: Button click -> RowA column1 "ON" (Rest OFF)- > button click -> RowA column2 "ON" (Rest OFF) -> button click -> RowA column3 "ON" (Rest OFF)-> button click -> rowB column1 "ON" (Rest OFF) -> etc etc eventually leading to RowB Column3 "ON" (Rest OFF) -> button click -> rowA column1 "ON" (Rest OFF) -> etc etc 1) What would be the simplest circuit design for such a circuit? 2) How difficult would it be to add a second input that moves the "light on" down a column? (The circuit would then have 2 inputs: 1 button to move "light on" down a row, and the other input to move "light on" down a column. Looking forward to your advice! Thank you :-)

I have a usb wireless modem, and the internet can only be used by one computer/person at a time. I want to know if I can have a computer set up pemanantly with the internet plugged into it, and have the computer connected to a wireless router (without a usb port), via a network cable (please let me know if I have to use a cross over cable or not), and be able to have multiple computers accessing the internet via the wireless router and computer. I would also like to know if I can just turn the computer's (with the internet plugged into it) wireless on instead and not have to use the wireless router. Thanks alot!!

Question by Mr. Thirty6 | last reply
I want to know how to create a link that when clicked will turn a color and stay that color. For example, if you have a navigation bar on a website and each page had its own link, how could you make it so that if you were on the home page, the home page link would black and the rest of the links would be orange? If you were on the about page, the about page link would be black ans the rest of the links would be orange.

Is there a way to shut off the slideshow option and see it like the rest of instructables? It seems to be slow, clumsy and eye-iritating to the point that it's not worth fighting with to look at. Feel free to disagree and post your opinion.
