Volunteers: Introduce yourself Answered

This is a place for the volunteers from the new volunteer group to introduce themselves and how they can offer advice/help, if they haven't already done that. I'll start. I know a lot about coffee. Roasting, brewing, serving, etc. Feel free to ask me if you have any questions about coffee, or coffee related machines. (roasters, airpot brewers, espresso machines, etc.) I've also been doing a lot with biodiesel, and I can offer advice on that subject. (Instructables coming as soon as I finish them)

Hi there Kcls!
I recently came across a member who is really interested in making his ibles the best he can. Would you be so kind to look at his recent ible and give him some ideas on how to improve it? I thank you in advance!

Personally I think he is doing a great job but I think he can polish it to be really good!
Here is the link! https://www.instructables.com/id/Mini-clothespin-catapult/

Yes, actually. I just found this today. I recently subscribed to this person and offered what little help I can, but I have not mastered instructables to the point I feel confident enough right now. I am still learning. I would love to see instructables offer a spell checker on our page. I think they would receive a lot more featured worthy projects if they did.

The site is generally optimised to be viewed in FireFox, which means you can add a dictionary that will spell-check for you as you type.

I use this one.

Plus, if you use the "rich editor" for your comments, there is a spell-check button on that (the one that says "ABC" over a small tick-mark).

Well I know this is old but I am a member of the group so,

I know my way around mac computers I am not the greatest with xcode terminal and quartz composer, but I am capable of using all of them. If anyone wants a tutorial on how to make a web browser in xcode how to play pong in xcode or how to make a screensaver that takes video input from your webcam and runs it through some filters and then displays it for some really cool results with quartz composer just ask.

I'm Cefn.

I work mainly in software and open source, but I've found some fun levers to push which connect my digital to your physical, like laser-cutting, arduino and processing.

I've got fairly good at them, so if you think some kind of computationally generated vector graphic is critical to your design, or you need to know how to make a circuit which detects when the bus stops and wakes you up, then drop me a line.

I'll re-introduce myself:

Science teacher, main interests currently making stuff. I know quite a lot of explosive stuff that I'm not allowed to do in the UK. Technically, under current UK anti-terror legislation, my brain is illegal.

Other interests - general science, mildly-pedantic use of language, and I'm a Cub leader.
