Support The Eyewriter

One of my favorite projects on the site, the Eyewriter, is in the running to win $250,000 in the Pepsi Refresh Everything Contest. If they win, they plan to use the money to make and distribute 1,000 units of the device, as well as develop a better user interface. Should they win, it would be a great opportunity to empower paralyzed individuals to express themselves creatively and live more fully. There is about two weeks left to show your support by casting your vote. The project is currently in 40th place and voting ends August 31st. They can use all the support they can get.

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.

ATtiny85 Supported Commands? Answered

Lately i have had a problem with certain sketches not working correctly on an ATtiny85-20PU. The blink sketch works fine on the ATtiny85 but this sketch below will not, also this sketch below does work correctly on an Arduino board. The list of supported commands for ATtiny85 are pinMode() digitalWrite() digitalRead() analogRead() analogWrite() shiftOut() pulseIn() millis() micros() delay() delayMicroseconds() Also the Arduino reference page is  The one possible thing i can see as not being supported might be "  round  " on line 33 causing this sketch to not work properly. I do not know this for a fact as i can not actually find anything that is not supported. Do you know if " round " is a hang up for ATtiny85's? . //int IRSense = A0;  //For ATnega328 int IRSense = 2;  // For ATtiny85 //int IRTrans = 9;  // For ATnega328 int IRTrans = 3;  // For ATtiny85 //int LED1 = 10;    // For ATmega328 int LED1 = 4;     // For ATtiny85 int valueAmbient = 0; void setup() { pinMode(IRSense, INPUT); pinMode(IRTrans, OUTPUT); //Serial.begin(9600); digitalWrite(IRTrans,LOW); pinMode(LED1,OUTPUT); } void ambient() { digitalWrite(IRTrans,HIGH); delay(20); valueAmbient = analogRead(IRSense); delay(20); } void loop() { ambient(); digitalWrite(IRTrans,LOW); delay(20); int value = analogRead(IRSense); int value2 = round(value - valueAmbient); int dist = (((value2+15.0)/(value2*(value2+100.0)))*2000.0); if (dist <= 10){    digitalWrite(LED1,HIGH); } else { digitalWrite(LED1,LOW); } //Serial.print(dist); //Serial.print("cm."); //Serial.println(""); delay(20); }

Atmega32u4 USB support?

I have made a breakout board for a 32u4. I have boot loaded to it using a uno as ISP and a modified Leonardo boards.txt file (I am using a 8MHz ceramic oscillator). The boot loading works and I can upload sketchs to it using the ISP. Here is the datesheet of atmega32u4 If I try to upload to the chip through a micro USB, I have to reset the chip manually and then I get the following output.      Programmer Type : butterfly      Description     : Atmel AppNote AVR109 Boot Loader Connecting to programmer: .avrdude: butterfly_recv(): programmer is not   responding avrdude: butterfly_recv(): programmer is not responding avrdude: butterfly_recv(): programmer is not responding avrdude: butterfly_recv(): programmer is not responding avrdude: butterfly_recv(): programmer is not responding avrdude: butterfly_recv(): programmer is not responding Found programmer: Id = ""; type = Software Version = �.p; Hardware Version = .

Pro Membership Billing Support

Hello, I recently attempted a purchase of a Pro membership. I never received an email confirmation, and the person I gifted it to did not receive an email confirmation either. Because of this, I attempted the transaction again and was billed a second time, still without an email confirmation. I have emailed info@instructables.com and the other support emails and have not received a response in over a week. I would appreciate any assistance. Has anyone else dealt with this? This seems rather unprofessional and shady.

iPad holder with Accelerometer Support

I got this idea while I was playing a racing game on my iPad. I would like to build an iPad holder which be tilted with a shaft or with something like a joystick. Thereby utilising the accelerometer capacity of racing and simulation games in a much more flashy way.  I don't know how to proceed with the materials and how am I going to achieve the movements when it gets connected the controller. I really need some help here. Please help me! Thanks in advance! PS: I will soon start to work a model of the project on 3Ds Max. I will post pictures if you guys need more detailed look of it.

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?

Battery support with Intel Compute Stick

Hi, I've been working in a project that is basically an Intel Stick with Z8350, a 7 inch waveshare screen and joystick buttons in the case. The idea is to be able to play windows games like Skyrim, Borderlands, Fallout... Anyway, I've come to a point where everything works just fine, right now I'm designing a 3d printed case to fit it all inside and take it to the go. I was planing on using a battery meter with LEDs to know the charging state and current state of the battery, but I just have been wondering, is there anyway to add battery support with windows 10 reading? just like a laptop, you pop a battery and windows gives me the percentage left and charging status. I plan to post a instructions for this when I finish it as well with the 3d print files and part list. My thanks to all!

Can this computer support Windows 7? Answered

Hey, I've been shopping for a new computer and over all of the results, the cheapest most powerful one I've found is the HP Envy H8 with a AMD 6 core processor at 3.8Ghz (4.1 max). I will put my Radeon 7750 into it too. Anyhow, here is the one I want (Hopefully it hasn't sold yet, but there are many people selling it for this price too): http://www.ebay.com/itm/360718941425. So my question is, if I buy the Windows 7 OEM from Amazon.com (Shipped and sold by Amazon), would this system be able to run it correctly? If not, could I make any adjustments to make it run correctly? Thanks! (Hoping to run Battlefield 3, Portal 2, Team Fortress 2, Roblox, Minecraft, Halo Combat Evolved, Grand Theft Auto IV, and Need for Speed World on it at about medium graphics with at least 30-40FPS).

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!

Instructables supports SOPA? Say it isn't so!

According to the NoSOPA Chrome extension, this site supports SOPA. Is that true? I was considering a pro account, and would like to know before I put in my card number.

Non-12-Step Support Group Program

If you or someone you know could use help recovering from alcohol or other drug abuse, I hope you'll check out www.smartrecovery.com. This is a secular (non-religious), non-step support group program and resources based on Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy and cognitive behavior change. It's not-for-profit, and there are online and face-to-face meetings all over the world (the program is better known outside the U.S. even though it's "home-grown."

Instructables supporting illegal activities - opinions please...

I have a few questions to the officials here in regards to supplying information to be used for illegal activities. Topics like these: https://www.instructables.com/community/Smoke-bombs-that-explode-on-contact/ https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Make-Fireworks/ and possible others contain information on the making of explosives. With anything from byuning over posessing to making explosives considered to be illegal and punishable by law in most modern countires I was wondering how the official point of view is on these topics? Freedom of information and so on is all good and fun but I think at some point there should be a limit. With the potential to harm or even kill people following instructions in relation to explosives I simply think topic for the help on making explosives should not be tolerated here. This only my personal opionion of course and maybe it wrong but I think supporting illegal and unlawful activities is not really necessary for a cummunity forum...

Wireless printer ports to support USB cams

What I would like to see is a mod for one of those little wireless printer port boxes, you know, the ones that you hook up to a USB printer to make it wireless... Anyway, the mod would be to allow it to take a web cam instead of a printer and turn your web cam into a wireless cam that can be placed anywhere. The mod would have to be less expensive than buying the typical wireless cam (~$150.00). Has anyone ever attempted to do this? Would someone like the challenge?? For all us financially limited folks out here, you would be praised and raised to god-like status.... =)

Instructables needs international character (letters) support!!!!!

Instructables currently does not support a lot characters from other languages. If you use a character from another language, instructables simply replaces it with some letters and symbols. Since the only other language I use here is spanish, I can only say this has happened to me when writing in spanish. The problem is, that without these characters (like diacritics and a certain spanish letter), many spanish sentences cannot be properly written, therefore altering its meaning. This problem has made it very difficult to use spanish in the site. Is it possible that the staff can do anything about this? Also, if anyone has experienced this problem in another language, please write it in this thread.

Import from doc, markdown support, and tables

First of all, I want to say that overall, writing my Instructable was a pleasant experience. While I do have some suggestions, I enjoyed the process and felt that the site worked pretty well to allow me to build a good set of instructions. Kudos! I'm sure it's probably been suggested before or I could be missing something with the editor, but I would like to see a way to import from a word doc. I wrote up a lot of the details in a word document before writing my Instructable, and if I were able to import that directly it would have saved a lot of time. I was able to copy and paste, but it removed much of the formatting and I had to reformat sections. It would also be really awesome to be able to copy and paste markdown formatted text into the step instructions. Markdown is used by a lot of sites / software including github, thingiverse, confluence, and jira to name a few I know of off the top of my head. Finally, I really wanted tables in some of the steps to make lists of tools and parts cleaner / easier to read. If tables are supported, I wasn't sure how to create them.

Is my Spring in the Air - or my prop not supported? Answered

I have been reading on this site about the problems associated with building and using a vehicle for road use that runs on a clock-work basis. The square cube law problem re the spring and also the problems created by the gyro forces of the flywheel. What I want to ask is: Would it be possible to have a spring or series of springs big enough that could drive a generator to charge a bank of batteries that would then power a narrowboat on the inland waterways and potentially rivers of the UK. There is a company that supplies engines and batteries and their paraphernalia suggests it is possible to get 2 hours of battery propulsion from one hour of diesel use - http://www.betamarine.co.uk/inland/Beta_Hybrid/inland_hybrid.html. So, if the engine was removed could it be possible to use some kind of clockwork spring-thing instead of the engine big enough to charge batteries that would then power the boat. I am thinking that winding the spring would be done but either a very geared down bicycle or some kind of geared down lever crank with ratchet or even a transportable friendly donkey...I appreciate that fitness and maintaining it would be important to wind up the spring by pedalling the bike, cranking the lever or chatting to the donkey to keep it friendly. How big would the spring need to be and how long would it take to wind it up by bicycle, crank or donkey. Keen to know what the real problems would/could be...am thinking it might be possible to use a series of springs so they do not have to be so very big and therefore could overcome the square cube law problem and how many would be needed to charge the bank of batteries to then turn the prop.

An open letter to the support and those running this website

For a few years now good people using this website tried to make suggestions, make requests or just attempted to provide helpful feedback and bug reports.Severe bugs are usually dealt with promptly and I like this very much.For everything else though at least I start to develop a feeling that tells me your end either does not listen or does not care.Users are what keeps this section and website alive.Users provide the content that allows you to place ads to make a bit of revenue.Users fill your servers with their ideas.Users are those you should help to have it easy and enjoy being an active part of the community.I won't repeat the things users stated or requested thausands of times already.But I do state that at least got enough excuses and promises over the past few years to think I am being taken for a ride.You state the users are highly valued - valued as what exactly?You suck in user's creations like a vacuum cleaner and promote it all through endless numbers of sponsored contests.You create volume and website hits only.Quality was reduced to forcing restrictions and often totally useless standards on the user.There are articles explaining what a successful Ible needs and how to write one so it fits into the greater picture here.But where is the information how to embed pictures with the text? Oh right, that would be too nice for someone doing it or reading it, so we just plaster a block of images in a meaningless location on top of the text...I was a forum admin for a few years and if there is one thing I learned from it than : Don't mess with the users by "improving" things....Sadly Instructables never got that experience and we saw a lot of "improvements" that really absolutely no one using the website wanted or needed.The storm from that again showed how badly the user is neglected here as even reverting back to something close to what worked before took many months.The request to have some sticky postings informing the user about progress and what features might come soon was rejected again and again.Although I realised the offical suggestion to rework my last Ible so it can be published was a mistake:It highlighted the expectations you have when it comes to how you want users to create their Ibles.Creativity is not just the project in question but also how the creator wants to present it here!!I call it censorship if a person is forced to comply with standards that no one needs nor wants.We get excuses, we get promises but we simply never get anything that actually helps the user to be more creative and have it easy to create posts and Ibles.How long was it until we at least got a half working sorting option in the community section? About a year or so?You want more and better Ibles, a functioning community section again, even more revenue?Well, then give the user what they want or at least what they need to be creative again.Talk to the boss and tell him or her that we need more coders or preferably a new platform for all that actually works and is not just patchwork.Take a look at forums, blogs or other community websites that offer postings and content.See what is possible and what users create, how they create it.Search through the endless numbers of complaints here to find what you missed again, again and again.Instructables won't lose the ongoing supply of new Ibles thanks to contests but as said, volume and quantity is not quality of content ;)A user who is left struggling year after year will give up one day.Users who realise that it is not worth it won't come back after their first and only posting in the community section.And well, someone who created a really outstanding Ible for a contest and does not even make it to the final rounds might never bother again.Why is there no "open system" for contests?Anyone deciding what Ibles make it through should be open about it, post it and allow users to suggest entries he or she might have missed.Even more so for the winner selections.How many votes? What exactly made it a winner? Was it promoted by featuring it or listing it elsewhere?I don't know about you guys but even in a schools science contest the winners will be announced with some meaningful words why they actually won....Sadly, right now, I only see taking, restrictions and ignorance for the user here.The few posts from the support are highly appreciated but only a drop of water onto a red hotplate.Just for imagination:I took tons of pictures detailing my project right from the start.I took a lot of notes while creating it.I am ready to create a great Ible with it all so everyone can build or create it, I want to world to know about it.Then I click on the button to make my Ible and am greeted right away with an image uploader....Dumb enough I upload all my pics in one go.I start writing, I want to include a picture with the text so the user knows exactly why for example that screw needs to be done exactly like the picture shows.But wait...I can't drag the image down from that studip bar.Instead I am forced to create a new step for each picture that has a pecial meaning or purpose.Making a list of parts?Well, lets do it manually and by wasting precious time because there is not usable listing option anywhere to allow the creation with bullets or similar.Oh well, several hours later than expected it is time to take a preview of my creation.The images are clustered up and in no way usable to floow the text, so I start again, add more steps, drag it out even more.In the end I have about 50 steps for something that was fine in MS Word on a few pages.....To finnish I just need to somehow figure out how to get my cover images to fit into this tiny box.Cropping, resizing, again and again only to realise I might have as well used the thumb image IrfanView created in my folder...Then I do the final check.I try to make sense of the unplanned order of things and that no images makes enough sense because I need to click back and forth between steps all the time to undestand it.Then I take another look at my MS Word printout and the Ibles lands in my draft folder.When a suitable contest comes along I might try to check if the editing options have improved enough to post it.Well, I now have more drafts than published Ibles...Now imagine I would not be the only one....

ArduinoISP does not support PORT Output commands?

I was planning to make a drum machine that only requires two pins on the Arduino and so, wanted to use an AtTiny85v but it gives me errors like: 'DDRD' was not declared in this scope ArduinoBeats.cpp: In function 'void setup()': ArduinoBeats:97: error: 'DDRD' was not declared in this scope ArduinoBeats.cpp: In function 'void playKick()': ArduinoBeats:288: error: 'PORTD' was not declared in this scope ArduinoBeats:294: error: 'PORTD' was not declared in this scope ArduinoBeats.cpp: In function 'void playSnare()': ArduinoBeats:304: error: 'PORTD' was not declared in this scope ArduinoBeats:310: error: 'PORTD' was not declared in this scope ArduinoBeats.cpp: In function 'void playHat()': ArduinoBeats:320: error: 'PORTD' was not declared in this scope ArduinoBeats:326: error: 'PORTD' was not declared in this scope ArduinoBeats.cpp: In function 'void playCrash()': ArduinoBeats:335: error: 'PORTD' was not declared in this scope ArduinoBeats:341: error: 'PORTD' was not declared in this scope I had named the sketch ArduinoBeats so that explains all the ArduinoBeats stuff.

Will an update for/ or rooting my phone will enable mhl support?

Hello everybody! I just bought a mhl cable for my mobile phone, but after connecting it, my tv doesn't show me anything. I searched my phone spec's and I found out that my phone doesn't support mhl. Such a shame! But then I was wondering, my phone runs on android jellybean. If I upgrade it to android KitKat, would I then be able to use the cable? Or should I just root my phone? (Does any of you have a good rom for me that supports mhl?) I have searched a couple of hours on google but it didn't gave me some answers. I hope you guys can help me. My phone is a Samsung Galaxy S4 mini (GT9195) with jellybean on it.

Require versatile set of tools for supporting youth poverty

(Sorry for my English is too bad because I was in Vietnam. I translated by Google) Hello! We have known about your site through a Google search. We think it is very good and I also have done a few things from the tutorials on the website such as USB Fan, USB LEDs ... We just do for fun because I'm not in a position to do big projects. And we really feel very happy when his own hand to create a product whether it is small:). We have a petition with you! Currently we are very interested and wanted versatile set of tools (like USB Gift Contest) but the ability of financial straits (now we're a student) to buy a versatile toolkit for them I was not too difficult if not impossible. So we want to ask you how old kit but not used may donate to us. We would be grateful if such a tool (if you can you can support me two or three sets, because here we lack tools). Thank you for reading! Waiting for your reply!
