Desk Support

Hey boys and girls. Over the past couple of weeks (due to work, mostly) I've been building this computer desk, the original here, and a slightly modified one. I've built it using 3/4" MDF and have it painted a gloss black, similar to the modified version. I'm currently stuck on what to do for support. In the original, he uses file cabinets and some scrap material for supports. In the slightly modified version, he uses desk legs from Ikea.I'd like to do something simple, but I'm kinda lost. I've had two ideas floating around my head for a while but I was wondering if their were any other suggestions y'all might be able to throw at me. First, I was thinking about making legs out of chain-link-fence style posts.Then I had the idea to suspend it. Attaching a cable to the front "bulge" on each side (see pic.), and attach the other end of cable to the wall. Using a piece of 2x4, or the like, screwed to the studs in the wall to support the back edge's. (I hope that makes sense). I'm thinking suspending it might work, but would require a bit more work.The idea of a floating desk sounds really cool, but I can't think of another way to achieve the effect.Any thoughts on getting this thing off the floor, minus the saw-horses, will be greatly appreciated.

png support?

I'm having trouble with the png image file format. They seem to show up fine in the small image preview at the bottom of the screen when I'm authoring my ible, but when I try to add image notes, it's just a black screen. I tried it out on both Chrome and IE and the same problem arises. In both edit and preview mode, just a black box. Ugh. Any ideas on what could be causing the problem, and how I might fix it (besides converting the images to jpg. I know that already, but they're licenced for use as png, not as jpg, and I don't want to violate the copyright holders' rights). Help is greatly appreciated. The images are originally from openclipart.org (which is a great resource for anyone looking for images they're legally allowed to use for free). Thanks for the help.

Support contact problems

Hi, Is anyone else experiencing problems contacting the Instructables support team via email? I have tried to email them via different channels three times now but it comes back as non-existent email address.... ironically the reason I'm trying to email support in the first place is because despite changing my contact to a new email address in my personal settings, emails are still being sent to my old email address. If anyone knows how to get through to support or if they are having the same issue maybe we can join forces to resolve it..? Cheers!

Instructable flash support

Well today as I stared at pocket cotton candy machine, I thought I should add a flash animation explaining the basics of how cotton candy machine work. Now that poses a problem. I could export my animation to a video, but when you do that in Adobe Flash it deteriorates quality and basically turns it into a slide show instead of an animation. So this post is to suggest the possible add-on of flash support for instrucatbles so that those of us who use flash don't have to ruin our animations. Plus flash loads faster.

I'm torn - I oppose pro, but I want to support the site.

1) I'm quite opposed to two significant changes introduced with the "pro" account (see https://www.instructables.com/community/Pro-Instructables-Accounts/ for my perspective)2) I want to support the site and the people behind itWhile the above two aren't necessarily orthogonal to each other, I have to recognize that this is a business, and they are making this change purely for business reasons.Therefore I know that if I choose to go 'pro' that may lessen the impact of my argument because, as a business, they have to recognize that even their detractors are still paying up. They may choose, for purposes of profit and revenue, to leave the major problems unchanged because it's working.Note that I don't actually use the site enough to make the cost worth it - I'd be paying for it merely because I want to support the site and keep it going (preferably in the right direction).What are your thoughts on this issue?-Adam

Bathtub installation question Answered

I'm installing a new soaker-style bathtub as part of a bathroom renovation.  It is acrylic, and is designed to fit into a cutout.  That is, there is a tiled space between the lip of the tub and the tiled walls around the tub. I bought the tub on sale as a demo model from a home store (Rona, kinda like Home Depot), and as such it came with no installation instructions.  I couldn't find them online, and I wasn't able to get any help from the manufacturer, either.  Perhaps I need to pester them more. Anyway, the issue is this.  On many similar tub installs, I've seen them layer up mortar under the tub for support.  However, my tub has two wooden rails (2x3s) permanently fiberglassed to the bottom.  In addition, a very dense hardboard spans the entire bottom of the tub.  It really seems as if the tub is designed to be set on the floor just like that, perhaps with wood blocks screwed in around the edges of the rails to keep the tub from shifting. I can do that if that's how it should be done.  I just don't want to risk cracking the tub with hundreds of pounds of water and human - my wife would not be pleased, nor would I.  Does anyone have experience with this sort of thing?

Will this motherboard support a dual core CPU? Answered

I'm helping my friend do some upgrades on his computer, it's a Compaq Presario SR2034NX desktop. I'm wondering if it will support a dual core processor or not. According to HP, it doesn't, but looking around on the internet, I've seen quite a few people have upgraded to dual cores. However, there's some minor differences with this particular motherboard. It seems that there are actually two different types of motherboards with the same model number from Asus (A8M2N-LA). On the HP site they have different HP model numbers (a more advanced board - the NodusM3-GL8E, and the one I have - the Naos-GL6; both with the same A8M2N-LA number for Asus) It appears that the NodusM3-GL8E supports all sorts of fun things like 8 GiB of DDR2 800 RAM and dual cores up the wazoo. However, the Naos-GL6 looks like a stripped down version of the NodusM3-GL8E (two less RAM sockets, etc.), so it might not support a dual core. I'd like to know before purchasing, since Newegg won't accept processor returns for a refund. Also, 800 Mhz RAM would be nice to have, HP says it only supports 667 Mhz RAM but other people have put 800 Mhz in with no issues. Does anyone know if my friend's mobo will support a dual core and 800 Mhz RAM?

acceptable angle of deflection for temporary support

Hi, I am in no way an engineer.  I'm trying to figure out what is an acceptable angle of deflection for a combination frame and hammock support.  I'm thinking of using the the 80/20 t-slot beams.  I want something that is portable, easily assembled/disassembled for moving, and lightweight.  I'm go to make a box in our garden to protect our plants and when the corn is big enough, move the box around to make a hammock support(chicken wire around the bottom part to keep the critters out).  It's basically a box 6 feet wide, 8 feet long and about 6 1/2 feet high. 4 beams to make a rectangle on the bottom, 4 uprights(1 in each corner), and another 4 beams on the top to make it more rigid.  Chicken wire will keep the pests out but let me in to relax until the corn is too high and I move the frame.  :)  I'll put the hammock diagonally from pole to pole; total weight with me and the hammock is about 250 pounds.  It will be anchored to the 2 uprights with 300lb chain at each end. Using the angle of deflection calculator from 8020.net, I found some beams that had 5mm deflection with 150lbs of dead weight in the center of the 6 foot span.  I thought that even if I anchored the hammock to the center of the 6 foot span, that would be 300 pounds, more than the 250 max the hammock and I will be.  And anchored in the center of the beam is the worst case scenario since I'll be anchored to the corners. But is that an acceptable amount of give in the beam?  It's not meant to be permanent.  I won't be in it more than 2 or 3 hours tops. Thanks!

First Instructable Featured

I'm not sure it is intentional, but I feel that the Instructables crew does a great job of featuring members' first instructables (given they meet a certain standard). My first Ible was featured and it's a great boost knowing that they really do pay attention. Keep up the great community and hard work, guys!!! -BG

glass table? (is this where this goes? :D)

I recently obtained for a fair price a cut piece of glass from goodwill. its rounded slightly at the sides and greatly at the corners. at the widest point it is approximately 52" by 24". its 3/8" thick-its fairly heavy as you could imagine. I mean i can pick it up by myself but its worrying me what to build the actual support out of. I was thinking to have 2 tubes pipes or cylinders at equal distances from the right and left edges-it would be at least 10 inches away from the edge on each side, leaving what, 32 inches in between them? Now my question is whats the cheapest way of doing this. i didnt THINK i would use PVC, but i dont have the slightest clue how much it could support, so idk. Aluminum tubing is cheap for smaller sizes, is that better? Id give a weight estimate but im terrible at estimating things based off my senses so thats a bad idea. Maybe you can get an idea off the dimensions. I can spend at max 15 bucks for PVC or aluminum. oh, and the desk is gonna be around 30 inches tall. so 5 feet is just enough. Also, what would be a good idea to place the cylinders on top of for balance? At this point, all i need to do is keep the glass 30 inches off the ground with ~3 feet of space for me to slide my chair into (although its really not a neccessity because itll be out alot anyway.) with a 15 dollar budget. any sugestions?
