Oops! I think I broke Instructables! Answered

Oops - I slightly broke the website. Just a little bit.

The thread "...bigger than its belly can" has too many full stops in the title, which confuses computers, apparently.

Anyhoo...

I was just pointing out that, of all the engines you'd expect to see here, nobody has made a pulse jet engine. Yes, I made a jam jar version, but nobody has made a real one.

I don't know why, they're very easy (basically a big pipe with a fuel supply and no consideration for the neighbours).

Maybe you'd just like to buy one off ebay, or maybe you'd like to look at the pictures of the jet mounted on a scooter, imagine what the ride would be like, and tremble slightly in anticipatory panic...

I got a message from the seller:

I have a video of it doing approx 70mph down Croft start/finish straight,the moped has now gone as the plastic wheels did not last long !!.

I remember floppies that were truly floppy (remember the "nearly" 8 inch floppy ? or the 5.25 inch floppy ?).

I have a few of those sitting in my closet right now. I think they have DOS on them actually... (the 8" ones).

I have a few of the 5.25 " floppies (the 8 " ones were used on mainframes a lot for IML code), and even a drive or two....doubtful any machine I have would support them though :-) Ack, Dinosaur speak.....IML LOL

Back when it came bundled with my PC with a 286 chip. And when I say "bundled", I mean the discs to install it were in a box that came with the software-free computer...

Yeah, `/../` in URLs/File directories is equivalent to just `/`, and can, and has presented verabilities in web pages. Adobe recently had a related vernability where you could access everything on the server by using ../

I remember Wordperfect! I had a dot-matrix printer at the time, and whole projects would fit on a floppy disc...
