Send to Friends

Hey Instructables! I like the "send to friends" feature at the publish step, but what I'd like even more is to be able to send publication notices to friends on instructables! Similar to collaborate, but without giving edit permission, as a way to push publication to friends with instructables usernames who aren't (yet) subscribers. Cheers! Keep up the good work! *

Send button acts funny when sending a pm.

I was replying to a pm and when I got ready to push/click the SEND button it was large.  As I moused over it, it studdered and changed size to a smaller different color button.  Is that normal?

All parts of the device must end up below the finish line (time will be measured to when this is achieved) Once started or released no assistance can be given to the device   The Competition There will be a competition for each year group.

SMTP to send email directly to a client

I have a project idea to create a BTRD, or Beer Theft Reporting Device. (Yeah, I need to come up with a more creative name... :P) The idea is to use an ESP32 microcontroller connected to an accelerometer and 6 pressure sensors mounted to a board, on top of which sits a six-pack. I do see a few problems though. hopefully wifi can penetrate the cold metal coffin without too much loss in signal. (I'm afraid the fridge may end up functioning like a faraday cage...)Assuming that isn't going to be a problem, I have been googling around trying to figure out if it would be possible to send automated emails from this device to inform of potential theft. Since I am not concerned about receiving emails at all, It seems overkill to have to use SMTP to send the mail I want to send to some server first, which then itself forwards the email on over through the internet over to a client. Is it possible to simply send the SMTP email directly to the recipient? I mean, if this is a product that I sell, then I would not want the end user to have to bother too much with configuring the device too much.

Program to interpret and send keystrokes to the system.

I have been doing a lot of reading up on "chorded" keyboards, especially the 5 key variety and I think it sounds really interesting.  I was thinking about toying around with the idea but decided I didn't want to build a standalone device.  I was thinking about a program that could be run to interpret the key presses on a standard keyboard and send new signals to the system, similar to a key mapper and was wondering where to start.  It needs to be able to run in the background while I do other stuff so I can use it to enter data in other programs (web browser, word editors, and such). I am pretty fluent in Java and C++ and I know a little python.  I'm not asking you to work out the logistics of it for me, I am really just wondering where to start.  If someone could point me in the right direction (should I write a Java program or an executable in C++, how might i send keystrokes to the system, etc.)

How to send and receive an electrical signal?

I don't know much about radio waves and oscillator circuits , AM/FM and stuff, but I need to send just electrical signals wirelessly, without any information on it, to some other device which activates when it would detect the signals. I would prefer to make the devices myself, if it is possible, without needing to buy anything, like RF oscillators and other stuff.    I was told that whenever electricity passes through a wire, a radio wave is emitted outwards from the wire, and is emitted every time the current flow stops, starts or changes direction,  I was also told that whenever a radio wave crosses a wire, it induces a very small current in it. I don't know if whether the above information was correct or not but I think I can use it in making such a device.

Question by Dangerously Explosive 

Instructable's robot not sending me notifications?

For the past week, I have not been receiving notifications for questions I have asked, or comments on my instructables. They do seem to appear in the orange board, and I have checked my settings for email notifications twice on different computers to verify it is not just me. I have also noticed that my recent replies to people are not answered or replied back to. Although it is difficult to tell since people to don't usually reply back anyway. So if you plan to reply, and I'll keep an eye out for any notifications and keep the page refreshed, and hopefully reply within the same day, maybe then you (the community who answered) can come back and verify if they did not receive the reply? I wonder if the same issue occurs with PM messengers, Not sure. Also how do I submit a bug report? [EDIT:] Posted bug report here, as well as other minor bugs with the commenting system. (might as well kill as many birds with a stone as I can.)
