    My daughter sells camp- firewood, and people pay using the "honour system." They simply take the number of bags of wood they need and put the money in a dish. I wonder how she could rig up something that said "Thanks! Happy camping"? Any ideas? :0) P.S. It's really heartening to realize that so many people are honest. We hear about crooks, but not often honest people. Lots of people even leave thank you notes. Once we forgot to put out the dish, and wood was gone-we found the money for the wood tucked into my kid's shoe that was at the back door :0)

    hmmm, well maybe you can use the chip in one of those Recordable Greeting Cards to record your message, and then try to rig it that putting something on the dish will activate the sound in the card...would that work? P.S. Its nice to hear that people are nice! we have something similar in the dorm where we leave a 12 pack of soda in the public fridge and anyone can take for $0.25 which is usually just enough for another 12 pack..so far its been going well... :)

    SUCKS, since there are no instructions as to how to make this. that mailbox is begging for a baseball bat.

    We have a "be nice" rule at Instructables. There was no need to be insulting! Asking politely would have been more appropriate.

    thanks porcupinemamma, this guy doesn't even sound like he want to make one, just likes starting fights... im actually thinking of giving more details and making full instructables, but only because a different commenter asked nicely, not because of comments like this...

    Step 1: Insert wireless doorbell into Mailbox. Step 2: You're done! Happy now?

    I have had a snail mail alarm for years. Her name is Galadriel, and she is an eight year old English Cocker Spaniel.
