    man I know there's a be nice policy but how can you be nice about this?
    Totally second what shadow ops says, misspelled title, no capital letters, steps like "free the lens of the textile". What on earth does that mean? Oh no, my lens has been captured, I must slay the evil textile overlord and free the lens. OK so you probably mean cut it away so the lens can look through a hole. How? Scissors? A knife?? how do I avoid scratching the lens in the process? What stops the sock from fraying once I've cut it like this?
    I guess on the being nice front, its broken down into bite size chunks and that is handy.

    So great now I have a beeny with a webcam mounted on it backwards. Fantastic, I can't wait to use this in all those situations where I'm cold, need to see behind me, have a laptop or similar display screen right in front of me and yet for some reason can't turn my head around, or use a mirror.
    Thanks very much berlin

    Ehh, it doesn't look like English is his first language, and the fact I can't speak anything but English already puts him way ahead of me.  Unlike most youthful internet posters who vote for Obama and crazed liberal policies, Mr. Berlin didn't cost me a cent with his post.  At worst, his posting was simply uninformative.  However, if you like to troll, and I suspect you do, you can join lots of forums where it's more expected than Instructables.

    Dead on - I was asking myself the same thing - When would I ever use this?  There is such a thing as being nice AND being realistic... and you've done both... so don't worry.

    How can this be featured when the title is spelled wrong, and it doesn't even have capital letters? Mind you, it does have good quality pictures...
