Sad

It's really sad that instrutables is beginning to let advertisers "sneak" onto their site. It was such a beautiful idea to begin with and now I see more and more advertisements labeled as instructables.  PLEASE go back to everyday people sharing useful instructions instead of Charlatans spreading their own self-aggrandizing products.  Instructables, you WILL begin to lose your fan base unless something changes. I've seen it to many times in the past. Sites that start out with good intentions but eventually succumb to the almighty dollar. I know bandwidth isn't cheap and We don't mind the adverts on the edges but, PLEASE watch out for shameless self promoters. Watching With High Hopes, Me

Sad decline, forced registration

I think it's pretty sad if you can suddenly not look at secondary pictures, or some pages of an instructable, without being logged in, if this pathetic behaviour continues I will have to un-register and stop visiting.

Does anybody think this video is sad?

This video is a clip from Daft Punk's movie Electroma with a different song by them called Make Love.I find this clip very saddening. To get this jist of the movie watch the second clip (the video doesn't really start till 33 seconds in) and it has pretty good music! Basically the robot with the silver helmet wants to become human and the robot in the gold helmet is his best friend. They try and become human in a robot world. any thoughts?

I haz a sad - Gorilla competiton

So I saw the Gorilla competition and it said - make a cardboard construction and enter it in our competition. So I made my construction, and went to enter it, and only then did I see that I was supposed to be making was an instructable. This may be obvious to anyone familiar with the site, but I had not entered a competition on here before, and it does not say anywhere in the rules that a series of photographs and instructions was part of the competition. So I have a very nice cat tower made from carboard tubes (which the kitties love), but only a final photograph. Sigh. I will know next time, but I think you should say that this is a competition to make an instructable, rather than just a finished object.

The sad truth about VR headsets

With seemingly no end to lockdown I thought I provide a little heads up on the VR front in terms what is going on, what is required, how much it might cost you and where the downsides are.Google basically abandoned the Cardboard idea, there isn't much new happening anymore, still it is a great and dirt cheap start. For under 10 bucks you get some cardboard, two lenses and some magnets. Put together and you have a head mount for your phone to enjoy 3D and VR/AR realities. And surprisingly there is actually good content available for Carboard users.For a bit more you can get stand alone headset from several vendors. Starting from as little as 300 bucks for the older, entry level models. Good enough to watch movies, play some nice games and explore the virtual world. Serious gaming is becoming more and more popular, especially online multi player games.Still considered the best option in terms of experience ad quality are tethered solutions that required you to have a powerful gaming PC at your disposal. But for the casual fun it would be overkill to invest into both PC and VR hardware.How good is it then? I tried quite a few systems and have to say they have come a long way from the early days. The wow-factor though depends on the content, some is good, some is just painfully bad unless you like catoon style graphics. The potential is huge but right now content is limited to more or less always the same in a different look. If you have problems on a moving ship or have your breakfast come up in a themepark ride you might stay away from certain VR things. They like to call them "experiences" - a way for you to be really in it, a part of it. Only problem is that no everyone can tolerate seeing all sorts of movements and motions without actually moving - seasickness in reverse so to say and not very pleasant if you suffer from it LOL What is rather surprising is that some VR things are incredibly addictive even with crappy graphics. You can lost playing some crappy game for hours on end and still want more.....What is possible in terms of social interaction, considering we are in a pandemic? Depending on what you and your friends/loved ones have available there is some... You can hang out in virtual worlds together, have a chat, play some games. With some systems you can even watch movies together in your own virtual theater. A bit like having your friends with you in a really dark movie theater and not being allowed to touch them LOL Sadly a virtual sharing experience still seems far way. You can't just pop your headset on, plug in your 3D camera and share what you do in realtime and 3d with your friends. There is development though in terms of virtual interaction. By linking certain things, like little robots, electronic board games or just your virtual assistent, you can create your own virtual, virtual home. And whoever comes to visit can use your interactive things, for example to tell the robot tomove a chess piece on the board. VR suits to allow for a more realistic virtual experience are still very far away ....The reality about content, games and apps. Google offers quite a lot on it's Youtube platform. Simply tye in whatever you like and add VR to have a good chance to get at least a 180° video out. And there is plenty of other providers specialising in VR experiences and video content. From holiday promotions, over themepark rides to doing freefall jumps out of a helicopter - there is something for everyone. If we leave the free world of the internet behind us and things that every browser can reach: What is left? That is the real problem.... It is a platform war of the worst kind. Something that you like isn't available for your friends headset. An app that works fine for you can't even installed by your friend. And not even within a company you have a chance to use it all as Facebook showed us with Oculus. They kindly allow you to use some apps and games if you upgrade to a better model but not all. And once you find out that your new model can't share stuff with your friends on older ones you feel ripped off. Does not help that if you don't own one of the older models you won't even get access to the compatible and free software - you are stuck. Every company provides their own "store", why bother with the Playstore if you can keep the money and content control. It's all VR but good luck getting real cross platform support. Some developers decided to seek alternatives and so options to sideload content were born. And yes, some there actually bother to provide their game or app for multiple platforms :) What bothers me is the "try out buy later" approach. Sounds nice, sounds fair.... Most offer you a limited time, like 2 hours, to test a paid app or game. Turned out that itis actually possible to complete some paid experiences and games within two hours. Would you really want to pay 50 bucks for 2 hours of fun?.... Some say around 50 bucks is a fair price for a good game. Others say that for non VR platforms there is plenty of free alternatives that ae equally good and that it seems impossible to play the same game with people on 2D and in VR. Why is this happening....Let's take a look on how it all started.... There was the great idea once that AR and VR applications for everyone would be a great thing. We had no usuable tech at affordable prices though. Several companies and individuals tried ways to get at least AR solutions working, often by using mobile phones or tablets. Google jumped in with Cardboard, Samsung with Gear VR and even Microsoft wanted it rather late, a bit different and calling it mixed reality. Google gave up quickly and focussed back on Andoid and real world devices, same for Samsung. HTC and others still are game players and in some way responsible for us still having at least some choices left. from being just a pain and novelty at best AR and VR quickly saw real world uses. Developers jumped onto it and although content was rather low quality the interest was there. At some stage we saw a few interesting Kickstarter campaigns. And that's when things got really bad. A new device appeared and seemed to be a real game changer - a true stand alone headset with enough power to be practical. A few more were added shortly and it was almost a run to be the first to get a solution to the market. Obvious that even developers became rather exited. Suddenly they all started to disappear, often without actually shipping any devices to the many supporters. Only one Kickstarter got snatched up by a military contractor, two offered their services to Bill gates. The remaining ones including this amasing standalone model ready for production got snatched up for cheap by Mark and his social media platform. Microsfot had a lot of titles and applications, HTC was going strong as well and even Gear and Carboard were still all time favourites back then. Facebook offered the dream of every little hardware developer. Unlimited funds and access to a whole new world. Sadly it meant handing all control to FB. The dream of a free and open source VR platform with lots of support was gone. Now we have to decide in advance which system to buy, which company offers the most to fit the needs. Usually it means if your friend or family member has one device then you will buy something compatible, if not the same. VR turned into a game of control and data hording.What do your need to get really into VR and AR? Unless you have a supported Samsung device or a cardboard AND are happy with what is available you need a lot! Every competitor requires you to provide your personal details in one way or another. Most, if not all require you to also agree to being tracked and monitored during usage. They ALL require your bank details or credit card information if you want to make a purchase - few expections for the Xbox and Playstation in terms of gift cards. The later still require you to have a valid payment account at some stage. Some might say it is ok because if you order a toaster online the seller would have your address and bank details as well. Most sellers won't have databases for their users to track them or collect all sorts of data.... Microsoft at least limits this to gaming and proffessional use and the other competitors seem to keep a low profile. FB on the other hand has a very lear appraoch: Add whatever is possible to allow for even more data horading and user tracking - at the cost of competitors as this hurts developers and users alike. If you don't like being watched, tracked and that your data is abused stay away from the virtual world ;)How the VR development came to a stop.... Facebook made it clear from the start that certain content is prefered in their VR store. Experiences are fine but for apps and games the focus on being online is pretty clear. The need for people to not just sit there with a headset alone but to actually interact with other was abused to the max. The easier it is to get users together, to actually listen to them, see what they are up to is worth gold. This is reflected in the store. Apps that work(ed) fine on the GO are not available for the Quest. Titles advertised are not available. Developers wanting to port their things to the Quest are refused with useless excuses why it can't be allowed. If you actually check and see that it seems to be fine to publicly stream pirated movies or other copyright protected material you have to wonder... Bigscreen is a huge thing right now and o problem finding someone streaming a movie that is not allowed to beused this way. But it allows many users to watch and do things together..... Same for those virtual environments where you can hang out with your friends, share pictures and play games - you are being watched, tracked and followed while doing so - you date is indeed vital.... In other cases it is a clear money approach, like with Skybox. There were wuite a few good video players available for the Go. Only Skybox made it over to the Quest, the free ones all missed out. Those who still maged to get entry seem to have no choice but to leave well deserved features out, so that Skybox remains the only alternative. If you wonder why: The others won't offer or allow servers used to collect user data and usage data.... Right now the only real option seems to be to stay away from Oculus and to prefer the alternatives out there as a lesser evil.What will the future hold for us? The market is already clearly devided and split with only Steam being sort of a middleman solution for some platforms. Facebook made sure the hardware market stays empty and even if we would get a new player in the game it is questionable if the control of the big players can be broken. If in doubt and something becomes a thread it will be bought for whatever price necessary. Facebook already hinted that closing the door for "unknown sources" is an easy option, same for alternative app launchers. Microsoft made it clear that they don't mind free development for their mixed VR systems but well, with a very low user base interest is low for developers as well. HTC and the rest still try to fill the gap and find their place but it seems they only catch only slowly. In the early days we had only a few "companies" starting our computer revolution. Only the two who split apart in the garage times and are still rivals survived. Apple VS Microsoft. Only Linux and as a part of it Android really provided any lasting alternatives. Android was soon taken over by Google. Now we have the same useless war in the virtual world, with only the user paying the price and being blamed for the failure of VR catching on. Funny once you start thinking about it and checking how it all started. It is no wonder then that OS security as well as App security is of the highest importance to FB. Allowing true homebrew on these otherwise just modded Andriod systems would mean the end of tracking users and milking the money out of them.Is homebrew the solution or the real threat to VR? A very few of you will now say hold on a minute! Wasn't there a few court cases against Google and FB in regars to user data and privacy breaches?? Yes, and that is part of the problem. Both companies, more or less reluctantly, agreed access to their databses to government agencies. With basically everything in VR being (intentionally) kept unencrypted it is a real treasure hunt..... Homebrew would allow apps similar to Whatsapp entry and with that added level of end to end encryption open pandora's box. Imagine loading a custom OS onto a VR system that allows you boot whatever you like. You could create secure chat rooms for people with the need to show their latest tech, their latest innovations in a way that everyone can interact. Problems with your latest order of assault rifles - just check out our VR experience showing all you need to know. Need a map to find your way through this facility you shouldn't be in? No worries, just load the interactive 3D map on your headset and turn on the pass through from the cameras - follow the red line.... Fair enough then most will say now, make a bit of sense to be careful... But what is used as the worst case scenario to keep the doors locked also keeps all the good stuff out. And a result the devlopment and amount of titles and apps is kept low.What about families or group setups? Unlike other platforms there is no such thing as family accounts, not even individual user accounts on most devices. FB even removed this option from the native android setting with "updates". Means, if you own a bunch of VR headset you most likely will have buy the apps and games for every single device. The family fun of competing in virtual games then can set you back 200 to 250 bucks with easy - per title....Summary: VR is a novelty at best right now. Good for hardcore gamers with enough money mostly or to be precise totally useless for cross platform interaction - not even watching a movie from your own collection together in VR. You are tracked whenever possible, you are profiled and coached into buying more and more. Without real competition, without real open source solutions this will not change anytime soon.

. Help with installing an SSD into a Mac ? Answered

Hello, From a no knowledge base I have taken out the dead hard drive on my friend's early 2009 iMac, using youtube as a guide, and replaced it with an SSD. I used a crucial MX300 and it is totally compatible. I have El Capitan on a flash drive When I started up the mac it showed a question mark. When I started it up with the flash drive in, and held option, it does not show the new hard drive in disk utility., just the flash drive. I read around and it seems that the new SSD should be formatted before installation. Lots of people seem to have this problem; I read a small answer where someone said that you could connect another mac to get into the iMac's disc utility and somehow format the new SSD;  they did not go into detail but it seemed to suggest that the letter T was used on start up.  Or is the only way to this to remove the SSD and use an adaptor and connect it to a mac to format it?  Any advice or links will be gratefully received. thank you

SAD sunrise clock, led bulb mod?

I suffer with SAD and a sunrise clock helps a lot getting up in the mornings and winding down at night. I have one similar to this It uses ses 14 bulbs, currently using halogen 42W but these don't last long and I managed to blow one closing a drawer! So, I'm looking for a way to use 10 to 20W leds  but obviously, given its UK mains voltage that does the timed dimming, finding a suitable LED driver is difficult. There are a few out there but I've no idea which ones will work as it need it to. Also, the only commercially available dimmable led bulbs are e27 fit only, very expensive and only 12W, around 400 lumens. I need at least 600. Also the more the better. Looking to use 6400K or higher colour, as the higher temp colours are proven to be better for SAD. I can make electronic circuits and have hacked together/repaired plenty of stuff. I would rather build something than buy as I don't have £££ to spend! Does anybody have any ideas to help me get started? I'm also looking to replace my SAD bulbs, currently 85W cfls with LEDS as well.

X is always happy Y is sometimes sad

Hi One and All, New here and new ish to electronics. I have put together a physical test environment with a 450watt psu from a PC, an Arduino UNO R3, CNC Shield v3 - this is driving 3 dvd/cd rom drawer stepper motors via 3 A4988 drivers. Firmware uploaded as gbrl v09 using XLoader and running some test g-code using UCG. I have set V-ref on the drivers using a multimeter balancing motor function and heat. Well, there is in fact a very small voltage window where the motors work (.75 or thereabouts) the coils test at 10-11ohms.The issue! X, Y, and Z axis all work perfectly when run individually. However, from a blog (can't recall which right now) I have created some polygons for the 3 axis to draw/print. X and Y motors won't run at the same time when the code dictates. X always runs and Y just shudders but when the code within the same file dictates motor Y to run alone it works fine. Z works fine irrespective of what X and Y do. I have tried adjusting v-ref to no avail. Does anyone here have any ideas how I can get Y to run alongside X? Thanks in advance.....

I feel drained.....not just drained but kind of empty....UPDATED

I have been trying to "restart" my creative mind, but of late, I feel like I have had my brain replaced by a vacuum cylinder.   I am at a total loss, and even the LASER project I was working on, failed miserably.   Before going on to anything more with that, I will have to get some protective eyewear though. This is all very depressing to me....but I don't want anyone that knows me to feel badly because I do, it isn't your fault....it is partly situational and party medical (I feel like I am getting old - like my imagination is waning...). I guess PART of the problem is that the BAR KARMA project appears to be coming to an end.....with no news of whether it will be renewed next year or not......I had a LOT of fun, writing and submitting ideas to that, and even got to hear a suggested piece of music on one of the shows :-) I want to thank each of you for replying to my little mope session.....it has gotten kind of lonely in my section of the world....and it's good to know i am well thought of....thank you all.   I guess my recent failures, the mess I made of the box I  sent out in the gift exchange, the recent ambition to do something with a crystal radio....and my laser project that fizzled out....my fading eyesight, and inability to do the artwork (pyrographs) I once enjoyed doing....all has taken it's toll. To be honest, it hasn't been a LITTLE mope session, this has been going on for a few months, but has come to a head recently. What good is this deafness..... Only one? I was just going through many of my old PM's since I have kept a LOT of them, almost as far back as I can remember....so I could weed out some of them, and I have come to realize a few things:   #1:  I am DEEPLY in everyone's debt here for all they have done for me over the past few years.   In fact, that brings me to something else.... #2: I feel quite ashamed at feeling down when there are so many of you out there that care, I have NO BUSINESS feeling alone. .. it might even be considered "selfish" of me to feel that way.    And I am sorry for that.....but I do realize I am not alone, and I ACKNOWEDGE each and every one of you I have dealt with over the years. You are all VERY special to me.

One small sad note over the holidays (updated)

And I CERTAINLY don't want to bring anyone down, but we did have a small loss over the holidays.  On December 26th, at about 2:30 am (just after midnight of the 25th) our one guinea pig, Shamrock, started to have troubles breathing.  He "breathed his last" as we kept him company, so he did not die alone.  And his companion, Maura was by his side also, looking quite concerned over what was happening.  Respiratory ailments would be the worst for me; I would hate to have emphysema for years, etc.  Thankfully, he seemed to go fairly quickly (in a few hours) and did not suffer long. He WAS a fairly well aged Cavy, being about 2-3 years old when my wife and I rescued him from the local shelter.   He had a deformed foot that never seemed to bother him at all.  He got around famously despite this. We miss him already. UPDATE: It appears as though his respiratory problems were due to congestive heart failure.

The music has brought to me a wonderful story? Give me your opinion

Ok, so while trying to get to sleep, about an hour ago, I decided to listen to "For Crying out Loud" by Meatloaf. I tried to daynightdream (Dreaming while awake at night) me singing the song.... the music has unleashed a story. I tried to keep the story going. I then listened to "Hallelujah" by Paramore, then "No Suprise" by Chris Daughtry. Here is the story: Plot: A man and his band have a dream of becomming big. The man is the singer. He meets a girl, who helps his band out, and is a guest singer with the man.The man feels this may be the perfect girl for him, until a terrible accident happens. Doctors struggle to keep the girl alive, but she ends up dying. The man, being so depressed, departs from his band until he finds life. He starts touring solo around his hometown. He dedicates a performance of a cover of the song "For Crying out Loud" by Meatloaf to the girl. At the end, he breaks down and curls in a ball in the back of the stage. Being so depressed, he doesn't realize that he falls asleep. He wakes up a few hours later. He finally leaves the empty theater, to go to the girls house. It is empty, except for her dog. He feeds the dog. He thens becomes curious, and reads the girls diary. The last entry of the day said "I am not sure why, but something doesn't feel right. If anything happens to me, let (the mans name) know, I love him". The man can't help but to be sad, with a touch of happiness. He places the diary back in her drawer, and goes back to the garage where his band practiced. He soon finds out that the band had found a new singer, and has ditched him... to already have a platinum record released. Will the man find hope to find his dream? Please tell me what you think. Tell me if you think I should try to see if maybe I can write it, then possibly get it published? I really want your opinion. Okay, so I just wrote my first chapter. Here it is: "Hey. Gimmie that drumstick over there. I lost my other one," "Well, you know that being destroyed will leave a void" "Shuddup with your logic, Brian. Wait... destroyed...void. Write that down for a song!" No one knew the drummers name. They just called him "Animal". The lead guitarist is Brian. The rythm guitarists name was Chad. But most importantly, the singers name was Damian. Damian Blue. Everyone knew his name. He was the popular one of the town. "Destroy... and... void.... Got it!" Brian said in a monotone voice. "Killer! Okay, lets practice our song Lost" So they did. They played. This is the bands most enjoyed song. Everyone loved it. The town, the citizens, the kids, and even the mayor showed up at a concert. These are the people, this is the life, this is the band "Pessimist or Optimist?"

I like a girl?

Ok, I'll try to explain my situation - it's a difficult but here. Since I was a kid I feared fights. I HATED fights. My father signed me up to a kickboxing class, and I liked it a lot. That's why being a ninja became my dream. I gathered resources and necessary knowledge, and I'm ready now. The problem is that I need to change my life completely - no more massive computing. No more fear from fights, or hurting myself when doing parkour. In other words, I'm adopting a whole new lifestyle and I'm having a very hard time doing it. Now that I explained my state - there are two things that push me forward - the hope that I'll make it, and a girl. I liked a girl some months ago, but she broke my heart. I gave her all I have. Now, I fell in love with her best friend. I want to tell her, but it's the summer vacation now. I don't have her phone. I asked her twice to hang out outside, but she was busy. So it's either I keep asking and tell her when we meet, or tell her over facebook. I really want her. She will really help me with finding a better life patch.

Halloween Gingerbread House

$5-$10 Gingerbread House kits.... I highly recommend NOT buying one. Not only are they not flammable... They taste bad, difficult to assemble AND they don't come with the parts to make it just like on the box....This was one sad sad house -- so we put it out of its misery... Just thought I'd share...http://www.primitiveengineering.com/blog/?p=47 <-- Some videos in there...

WHY DID YOU CHANGE?!?

Why did you change what was good? This new site is awful! I see pics with no idea of what I'm looking at because the titles and brief descriptions are gone. I can't even hover and get a mouse over text. BTW - the pages don't format right in my OS / Browser combo - couldn't you have tested this first? This was a great site that needed no tweaking. Sad, so very sad....

Mood Faces

Right now I am sad. (:vo The comments and instructables are devoid of any emotional expressions except the most simple ones such as :D. What a case of melancholy. Anybody with experience is asked to help. Then I may be happy. :v)

Buttons that select playlists on a pc?

Ok, could anyone suggest a way of making an interface that has buttons with different moods on that opens up a playlist (prefferably in itunes) and plays it. for example, if I pressed the "Sad" button it would open up a playlist I have put together and play it automaticly. Thanks  :)

Dead baby bluebirds.

Bluebirds were nesting in a house in the backyard. Hadn't seen them for a day or two. Went out to take a look and there are 4 dead babies laying on the ground, sooo sad. We have a hawk in the area, would he have done this? Wouldn't think he could get his head in the house. Central WI area if that helps.

Some important bugs I found

Hi, I found some bugs: 1- The sort by of the forum does not work.  2- In the initial web a sad gray background. (instructables.com) 3- The button Go to step in every instructable does not work, I click it but it does not do anything. I am using Chrome (lastest version). Bye!

Entering a draft in a contest

I noticed that, when viewing a draft, the "add instructable to contest" button is active. Could you use this button to wait out the moderation and publish after it has been accepted into the contest or would the moderator not approve an unpublished ibble? It's always sad when you've been knocked off the front page before being accepted into a contest.
