DarkOwlKnex's Project Update Three

I've been doing a lot of stuff the past week.  I have to memorize songs for band, do summer homework, yada, yada, yada.  But, as always, I've found time for K'nex, and this is what I've come up with.  If there's enough interest in any combination of these, I'll post accordingly. The first picture is of the 'collaboration project' I had with Dr. Richtofen.  X3  It really wasn't a collaboration...  It was really me looking back through Dr. Richtofen's many successful attempts at a non-shooting Walther PPK and trying to make them shoot.  When I was finished building, I realized something: there was no firing pin for the gun that would make sense; the red rod was too short (it didn't reach the end of the barrel) and the black rod was too long (it stuck out the end).  I could've used a red rod firing pin and jammed the bullets down the barrel, (it was a singleshot) but I thought better of it.  I'd say at least 50% credit goes to Dr. Richtofen for that project.  The second picture is just a random little pistol I made out of boredom after scrapping the PPK.  it was cute and compact, but the next day, after I woke up at three in the morning because I couldn't sleep, I had a revelation...   What if I used the type of trigger off of The Racker Rifle (link below) on a mag in the handle gun, and positioned it just perfectly as to have the trigger block behind the handle.  I'd then give it removable magazines like on Blue Mullet's K'nex Handle Removable Pistol (link below).  The last three pictures are the result of about an hours work so far; I may update again soon. (Oh, and the Elvis mouse pad is my Dads, not mine; my Dad's a big fan, obviously.) The Racker's The Racker Rifle: https://www.instructables.com/id/The-Racker-Rifle/ Blue Mullet's K'nex Handle Removable Pistol: https://www.instructables.com/community/Knex-Handle-removable-magazine-pistol/ Thanks for viewing! UPDATE:  The big pistol thing is now named George, and I have pictures of it completed structurally, and internally.  It is now in Pre-Beta. UPDATE/NOTE: The internals you see in the last picture won't work, sadly.  I've updated it so that it now functions.

weird inlogging "bug"

  Hello. Almost whenever I try to log in on this site, there comes up  a screen that says: ''Sorry, we can't find that account, or your password didn't match. Please try again!" If I click somewhere else, I'm still logged in, and can do everything normally. What causes this, and what can I change to prevent this? Greets, Mike / Dr. richtofen

A site pretty much cloning Instructables

So I googled the word 'zorgenflarg'. One of the results was a Russian site that pretty much clones Ibles: http://kaburka.ru/id52306-zorgenflarg_knex_pistolet As far as I know, these sort of things are illegal, so I reported it here.

Automatically unsubscribed from multiple people

Hi there, I don't know if it's just me, but for some reason, I get automatically unsubscribed from multiple users on this site. I noticed that the amount of people I was following dropped from 50 to around 26 yesterday. I re-subscribed to the authors I follow the most, up to 36 people. Yet it was at 33 today. This all seemed to happen overnight, so 'out of my control'. I don't know what's causing it, but it's certainly annoying. Some info about my system: Lenovo G500s laptop with Windows 8.1 The browser I'm using is Firefox, version 35.0.1

Mauser C96

Greetings, So, ever since I saw Chuunibyou, I've wanted to try my hand on a Mauser C96. Once again, it's a model, based heavily on Aug5om3's version. I built his one, then changed the handle, trigger and shortened the barrel a bit. The handle is a bit less sturdy than I like, but it looks pretty IMO, though the front of it could use some more curving. It features: - a comfortable handle - charging handle - moving hammer - pretty good looks I'm not entirely happy with it, but as I have plans for other builds, I decided to take some photos to share, and then take it apart. Posted it as a forum topic, as it isn't original enough to warrant a full slideshow. Tell me what you think in the comments!

Why can't I post comments in a forum topic?

When trying to make comments on forum topics, I can type the whole text. But when I click the post button, nothing happens, no error, no warning or so. Just, nothing. Then, when reloading the page or visiting an other page, the screen gets a transparant overlay, with a screen that just says error: I tried posting comments using the following: Chrome on Vista Chrome on Windows 8 The browser is the most recent version on both computers. The weirdest thing is, is that posting comments on forum topics worked a few days ago. I put this in the question / answers section, after I tried creating a bug report for it, but not being able to do so. (it failed after clicking the preview button. Loading a bit, then going to a blank screen

Right mouse menu acting weird? (windows 8)? Answered

Hi there, Today, I've been experiencing a weird 'bug' on my laptop. Whenever I want to use the menu that comes up when pressing the right mouse button in an explorer-related location (documents, music, windows media player etc.), the menu is empty, The menu starts out as completely blank, and the options normally shown appear don't appear until you hover over them with the mouse. When I click the right mouse button in, for example, firefox, it works normally. Does somebody know what causes this, and how I can fix it? Thanks in advance. System information: Lenovo G500-20245 laptop Windows 8 64 bits Intel Core i5-3230M processor. GeForce 720M

2 x Pro Year Membership Giveaway! (CLOSED)

WINNERS: 1. Dr. Richtofen - Reason: I think his reasons for wanting the Pro membership were very thoughtful and kind. I agree with his reasons why he deserves it and I think I do myself. SO yeah, congrats Dr. Richtofen, I'll be PMing you with the membership code. 2. ~KGB~ - Reason: I believe the fact he is willing to post more Ibles as it would get him kickstarted, his previous instructables were of a high quality and it would be nice to have more of them on the site. I also think he deserves it as he has been a big community member and will continue to be one. I'll be PMing you with the membership code. Hey guys, Hiyadudez here! You may (or may not) be thinking, jeez, this guy hasnt been active in a long time! Well thats cause I havent. A while ago I sold my Knex and I slowly ran out of ideas for instructables and innovation. I am sad to say I still wont be very active, HOWEVER, I will try and post some Instructables when I feel like sharing something Ive made with you guys :3 So anyway, onto the reason why you all actually came to read this topic. Basically, I have 3 pro memberships and I want to give 2 away, and I want to give something to the community, I feel I want to give something back to you all when you were all so nice and supportive when I was active, also it would make me feel good inside by giving it away, and Im sure it would make someone else feel good inside too (: So basically to be eligible to get one of the memberships, just comment below, telling me; A. Why you would like a membership? B. Why you deserve a membership? C. How would you feel if you got a membership? I will choose the top 2 reasons for wanting the memberships on April 15th so be sure to answer by then! Also please note, if you already have an existing pro membership, you will not be eligible as I would like to give other people the chance to get one! Thanks guys. And good luck.

DarkOwlKnex's Project Update Five

As of late, I have been modding Bijou, my magical rifle, and making Short Deluxe Extended Playtime Albums for certain characters.   (You can see the four original Homestuck Kids' soundtracks here.  Don't fret, you don't have to be a fan of Homestuck to enjoy the albums; in my opinion, it's good music, and as the albums are based on a certain character, they are based on a theme to some extent.) (There is going to be soundtracks for the ponies from My Little Pony; Dr. Richtofen and I have been collaborating on what songs to pick.) In addition to those two things, I have been working on a new pistol, that I'm going to call Insight.  It is a super compact pistol that is different from all others because of one thing: it has a tubular magazine.  To my knowledge, it's the most compact tubular magazine gun to date.  The pictures show the gun and how to load it. Insight also: Shoots green rods. (A downside for some, but a pro for others). Uses a red rod sized firing pin. Has a comfortable handle. Can hold up to five bullets at a time. Gets about 25 feet as of now.  (This is just the pre-beta version, so I will keep modding it until it goes farther) Requires no cut pieces. (Nor do any of my posted guns, come to think of it.) And... Yes, the gun has a theme song: Insight by Joy Division. That's pretty much it. DarkOwl Out...    ,     ,  (O,O) <(IIIII)>    I    I
