Staying signed in?

Whenever I come to this site, I always have to sign in, even when I click the "remember me", this is not recent, been going on for 3 or 4 months. I am using windows 7 with FireFox and am accepting cookies. It's just plain annoying to have to sign in every time, even if I don't shutdown my computer it still forgets me. I like to click on an instructable and have to set to show all steps on one page, and when I sign in it does just that, but when I open a new tab to have another instructible open, it forgets me again. Any fix to this? It also does it on the Seamoney and Chrome browsers on my laptop.

CNC plasma cut signs

My freind is letting me use his CNC plasma cutter & so I thought It would be nice of me to offer to every here on intructibles to make them a plasma cut sign like in the pictures. right now the price of 1/4'' steel is about $2.50 per square foot where I live. The CNC plasma cutter makes really nice looking signs and can even cut out pictures, I can take a regular picture of a deer, an elk, a bear and cut it out. just look at the pictures below to get an idea. If you want me to cut you a sign out you can post a comment below and we will talk and fine tune the cost down. I prefer money orders, they are much safer for all of us. just not as quick. Thanks, Daniel

Hacked Road Signs

This may be one of the greatest pranks I've heard of in a while.We see them everywhere these days, digital signs by the side of the road telling us about road conditions or that we should prepare to stop or that our local bridge might be closed next Tuesday from noon to midnight. And if you're like me, you've always just assumed that the message on the signs is legitimate and properly authorized.But what if the sign, instead of reading something like "Ice Ahead" was flashing the message, "Zombies Ahead"?It's true that in San Francisco or a few other cities, such a sign could be put up by local transportation officials to warn people of an impending zombie march, but even in those places, the more likely explanation would be that the sign was hacked.And if you're in the Boston area and saw signs hacked in this way, there's always a decent chance it was done by students from MIT.According to the blog i-hacked.com, some programmable road signs are easily messed with, largely because they often have unlocked instrument panels, a text-entry system that is easily accessed, and are often protected with uncomplicated, or unchanged default passwords. That's some of the text from an article on cnet, here. I love what the hackers did with the text. :-)

Neon sign transformer

Hello everybody, I am looking for a Neon Sign Transformer (NST), I can not find any in my local area and cannot use ebay because I am 15 years old. So if anybody has an old used NST that you don't want anymore and willing to give it away or can obtain a NST for free from your local dump or neon sign stores, I would really want it! I will pay the postage bill. If you are curious why I wanted a NST, I want to build a Tesla Coil, I had built other Tesla Coils using other power supplies but I always have bad luck with them, they don't work properly so that is why I wanted a NST.I really don't mind how much voltage the NST gives out, like between 6Kv to 15Kv, but I do mind how much current it gives out, I only want a transformer that can give give out current between 20mA to 40mA, because of this, I don't want to build a big Tesla Coil yet...So, if you have a NST that you are willing to give away, please respond to me ONLY if you live in UK (United Kingdom), because I cannot afford such high postage (shipping) bill from other countries like America..

eco-friendly exit signs?

Hey, I´ve been reading a lot about green technology lately and while doing it I came across something that really surprised me - nuclear powered exit signs. I had already known that both cars and trains, for example, can be nuclear powered but I didn´t realize that an exit sign can use no electricity, even when it´s self luminous. Apparently it doesn´t require any wiring or batteries so I started thinking how I could make an exit sign myself. Btw, does anybody know anything about the regulations as far as the material used in fire exit signs is concerned?

Solar Lighting Needed for Highway Sign

We live in the country, and it would cost thousands for the electric company to bring power to light our highway sign.  The sign is two 8'x8' signs shaped in a "V" so both directions of traffic can see the sign.  I have tried garden solar lights, but they are not bright enough on the ground shining up.  I've tried connecting garden/walkway solar lights to the top of the sign (4 of them on each sign), but they are rather weak, and the battery is not big enough.  Can anyone come up with larger LED lights and perhaps how to daisy chain the smaller batteries together.  Actually I've thought of just getting a larger battery, controller, etc.  But I would still need help designing/finding LED lights that would work.

Using a laser printer on sign vinyl?

Question:  I've gotten a nice sized scrap of  sign vinyl from where I work at, and I'm wanting to cut out a replacement logo for the side of my pedal-start moped.  I can do it by hand okay if I could transfer the design onto the sign vinyl and follow it.  (because, I don't have access to a vinyl cutter or a Cricut type machine.) Can you do the toner transfer method from a transparency made in a laser printer, or would that melt the vinyl?  Or, if cut to proper size, could you print directly onto the vinyl, if the printer's paper path were essentially straight?  It wouldn't have to be permanent, just on the surface to follow it.  This stuff is pretty opaque, so a light table won't work either. Thanks for your time!

Battery Powered Programmable LED Sign

Hi all! I am working on building a sign to hold up at a concert I'm going to in a couple months, and I really want it to stand out!  To preface: I am very technically inclined but know very little about powering LEDs (have only done basic diode and battery combos) and have zero programming experience, but am a quick study.  What I am looking for is a solution that can be mounted on a 20x30" corrugated plastic panel, and run via battery pack with enough juice to last a 4+ hour concert. I know that one can easily buy battery powered LED strips, which I'd mount in an array on the plastic, but I'd really like to ideally be able to control the lights colors and show different bits of text, possibly via an iOS app.  I know this might sound quite ambitious but as my dad always likes to say, go big or go home! Anyone have any ideas where I can get started? Thanks in advance :)
