The Best of Instructables Has Arrived Answered

My copy of Best of Instructables Book just arrived! All work here at Instructables HQ has essentially stopped, so if the servers go down, send me an email or something...

The book is softcover and the same format as Make Magazine, except around twice the thickness.

There's also a thank-you page listing projects and photos that were submitted to the book, but were cut due to space limitations. Sorry we couldn't fit everyone in, but we still wanted to give you a shout-out. Maybe you'll appear in the next volume?

I've almost died every day when it hasn't come. I really almost died on Friday, when I held a large white heavy envelope in my hands. I was elated! It's here! It finally came! YAYAYAYAYAYAYAYA-

That mail isn't for you, it's boring papers for someone else.

Oh.

I've had so many NDEs with this, it's ridiculous.

The instructables book is killing me!

I thought it had arrived today - big white envelope, return addressee one E. Wilhelm...

It was only the knitting book I won in the craft contest.

Kitewife was pleased, though...

I may grow old waiting for it...and Kiteman...poor Kiteman...he might as well just will the book to #1 and 2 sons, 'cause he'll be long gone by the time it gets to England...

That's exactly what I think! Except for the bleedin' part. Weird British slang...must remember not to use any nouns, vowels, verbs or idioms when I go there...

Wow, it's arrived, I can't wait until it arrives at my door, I really want to see it... Plus after some talking to the teacher I can pretty much fill a unit of my media course with 'ibles stuff, the book being a finishing touch, granted the contest had to be put as if it was a proposal to yourselves...

Possibly. I believe a different view may have been had, by the rest of the world during the olympics especially. Internet censorship etc.
