bearded dragon won't eat

I just got a bearded dragon and i had him in a 10 gallon tank. i realized it would be much too small for him eventually so i moved him into a 60 gallon tank. its about a constant 85-90 degrees and his basking area is about 100. humidity is at about 40%. i am aware all of the controversey of using crushed walnut, but its a pretty fine grain and not sharp at all, i will replace this if i must. my dragon today isn't eating very well, he is healthy and moving around alot but he won't eat like he used to. just curious if any one has suggestions. i know about the problems with crushed walnut but i dont think that would have much to do with his appetite and i also cant seem to get him to eat any thing but crickets, i have tried alot of different veggies and what not but its all he will touch.... any help would be much appreciated thanks

There is a Major Timeline Error in the Halo Wars Promo Poster

In the poster for the new game Halo Wars, try to find the mistake. I'll give you a hint: look at their guns. As many people know from reading the Halo series of books and the video games, that before the battle rifle is introduced, all but one Spartan are wiped out on Reach, or trapped inside of Onyx. You, as Master Chief, are introduced to the BR55HB SR Battle Rifle in Halo 2. The Spartans were all wiped out before Halo 1, well before the Battle Rifle is even conceived by its makers. What gives? Why would they make such a serious (to me) mistake on a widely distributed promotional product?

K'nex Motors/Fans

I've been thinking and I just got done watching a cool video of a super motor. Apperently I'm trying to make a fan but I guess my motor isn't strong enough to move all the gears and axles. I've made all the axles go through smooth holes and no attachments... I'll try to show pictures later.

What replica next?

Well, i have a new replica coming out right away, and i want to know what kind of gun is should replicate next! I need ideas, and don't ask me to make these huge guns like the M249 Saw, or an intervention, I want to make a medium (eg, AK-47) to small (eg, mini-uzi) sized guns.  IDEAS?

Knexpert

I think that the term Knexpert is too widely used. I think it should be for several (over 3) innovative builds (NOT for instance an old system with one or two pieces changed) or some very good replicas. Am I alone in this thinking? Discuss. And p.s. Am I the oldest active member on here now that hasn't moved mainly to KI? I don't mean oldest in age, but oldest in time on instructables. I think a few may still be here. I'm not sure.

Mp3 Player Mod?

I'm not really sure if this is the right forum to talk about this. I did go to Tech, but I saw a topic about MP3 player Skin Mods here, so I thought if I could ask for some help. I have an Mp3 Player, it's cute, runs on AAA batteries and an SD Card. Here is the problem though. It lacks any sort of Display.  Like it's one of those screen less ones you find.  I do have a spare screen lying over from a cellphone, so I was wondering if it could be possible to modify the inner workings of my MP3 Player so that I can finally see the name of the song I'm listening to. xP

New Years 08: How We Could Theoretically "Discover" Time Travel/ers

Well that forum on time travel got me thinking...How We Could "Discover" Time TravelWrite down, carve on stone, burn into our memory, tatoo on my back, or something, that if/when time travel comes into exsistence, someone needs to travel back in time to a specific time and date in our near future (Instructables Control Tower, New Years 2008 would be a good time/place). If everyone were to record this, eventually someone/s might do so, meaning that a time traveler might turn up at Instructables HQ on New Year's. I personally intend to attempt to do so, or at least get my future kids to:)Anyways, if a good number of people do exactly this, there might be quite a congregation at Instructables on New Year's. Or of course, no one might turn up at all...

Instructables 5 star everything (almost) bug.

I have noticed (and so have many others) that all initially high rated Instructables now have an overall rating of 5 stars, this goes on for pages, for example, look up K'nex and then click sort by rating and you will find that all the Instructables up to Dutchwarlord's FN FAL Assault are rated 5 stars overall, is this a bug, or a gift from Instructables? Note, this is in K'nex because that is where I originally discovered the bug (no word on who discovered it first.)

K'nex Swords

Anyone ever make any swords? They lost popularity some time ago but I'd like to see some of the more creative plastic blades you guys may have made. I may start a contest or something to get some you to make some if I need to but hopefully some of you will be willing to try making something just to see how good it'll turn out. It's a nice challenge to make one as durable as possible and still have it look good. I tried out the Master Sword some time ago. It was pretty decent for a first go at it but I always intended on redoing it. I'm going to have another go at it tonight. Excuse any old comment boxes that may be left in there.

Indoor Garden Ideas (or Night Gardening!)

Hello everyone! First off, I love gardening, but over the past few years I've become sensitive to light.  I am now unable to go out into the sun for longer than 30 minutes without some extremely strong sunscreen, and sunscreen only prevents my skin symptoms.  So my outdoor gardening days are: 1. Over  2. Limited to 30 Minute Sessions. I read the Ikea Aquascape Instructable, and I am currently growing some plants for my father's aquarium.  I also want to try the Garden Inside a Ball Instructable as soon as I find a ball to use. Are there any other indoor garden ideas that I can use? I have a pittie that loves to run around and knock things over with his tail, and a German Shepherd that we're watching while the owners continue to not claim him, and he is losing his eyesight so he tends to bump into things. There are a lot of great mini garden ideas, but a lot of them require counter space or tables that we can't provide at the moment. Or maybe some night gardening ideas?  Has anyone written an Instructable on gardening for people with vampirism, *cough*, polymorphous light eruption? I would really love some creative ideas.  Maybe a sturdy indoor window box?

What Multi-tool should I choose?

I was wounder is anyone could help me pick a multi-tool ether from Leatherman or Gerber, I really don't like swiss army. If it could be around $30 have the some of the following: Knife, pliers or scissors, assorted screwdrivers, file, lanyard, bottle opener, awl and tweezers. It doesn't need to have all thoughts things but some. I am currently thinking about a leatherman Squirt P4 or S4. I have had the Gerber clutch but the pliers broke off and it was really worn out so I thought to get something new. Right now I have the Swiss+tech utili-key on my key chain right now and its basically a knife/saw, bottle opener with a tiny screwdriver on it. I know your going to say to win one but it would be easier just to buy one. Any opinions and review about what you have would be great. Also it needs to fit comfortably in my pocket, it will be going everywhere with me including school so the blade has to be less then 2.5 inches and can not lock.

Valley View Park Update 4

                                                                       November 2010 Hello Everybody! We decided to visit valley View Park a couple days ago and boy did we get a surprise. The amount of construction has rocketed sky high in the last two months. we'll start with some pics of the car park. As you can see in the 1st picture the park has begun to make space for an expanded car park as there wasn't much room in the old one. The new car park is just across the road. As you can see in pic 2 the old car park has been asphalted except for a few spaces. All these cars are owned by workers or management. As we got closer to the park we saw the closed sign as seen in pic 3. The reason of this was unknown but we we're determined to find out. Behind the entrance we can see a sign. In pic 4 we can see that it's a logo for the park. It's a scenic picture of trees with Valley View Park written in red. We we're allowed in and went to see the garden. It seems the janitors have to come to the park every now and then to water the plants as can be seen in pic 5. we decided to go see How the rides are going. We asked the man in pic 6 about the new name for Inversion Spinner and we received more information than was expected. Apparently Inversion Spinner will be given a new name, a new colour and it will be relocated.. What is going to replace it is still a mystery but we will do our best to find our. There will be nothing done to Dodgems which can be seen in pic 7. No work has been done on Python or Ferris Wheel as seen in pics 8 and 9 We ran into Mr. Fredrickson before going to see destruction. He stopped us from looking at the construction while we took a picture of Destruction. Pic 10. Mr Fredrickson then let us see what has happened at the construction site. We couldn't believe our eyes. We looked up and saw the start of an inverted coaster! Pic 11. Mr. Fredrickson told us that he was able to contact the popular B&M; company from Switzerland to build a coaster in Valley View park. This makes the coaster the first B&M; in Australia. In pic 12 we can see that there are some fences to stop people from falling out. The first drop looms over the path to Destruction. Pic 13.From the Queue line of Destruction we can see the station of the new coaster. Pic 14. We asked Mr. Frederickson what the name of the coaster will be but he kept that a secret. Form the top of the castle of Blackbeard's voyage we can see the whole coaster so far. As we can see in pic 15 the first hill has been built. It has not been confirmed if there will be any inversions but It will still be exciting nonetheless. In pic 16 we can see the crane working with the track pieces. Mr. Fredrickson said that the park will be closed during Summer break. He hopes the park can receive enough money after Summer Break to maintain the park. He is taking a major risk in this action and he is hoping that the new roller coaster will earn enough profit. Unfortunately we will not be able to talk about Valley View Park until the end of Summer Break. Goodbye everyone. Stay tuned.

TheDunkis's Display and Request Thread

Alright I'm not saying I'm special enough that I should have my own little personal thread dedicated to what I do but...I'm lazy enough that I should have my own little personal thread dedicated to what I do. Why? Simply that. I'm lazy. I don't feel like making a thread/slide show for any new gun I make but I don't want to post it in some other random place. I also don't want to go around asking for ideas whenever I'm stuck. So to put it simple I'm going to display whatever current projects I have here and I'll also take requests. ~Current Project~ FKG (Folding K'nex Gun- Yes very original...) Alright I saw SK's FMG and I wanted to try one out myself. It didn't end up as pretty or as functional as SK's but it is compact and in a very early stage of design. I'm not sure what to do with it because it's at the point where I'll have to completely butcher it to improve it and then that would require whole new ideas on getting the parts that do work to keep working. So as said the only real big difference here is that it's more compact than SK's. Some other differences are -Held in place by a "grip" rather than a "bolt" -At the moment not rubber band loaded -Simpler trigger -Double hinge thingy for the stock to gun connection. So instead of a fixed pivot swing, two different areas rotate to move the stock from the very bottom to just behind the gun. Otherwise it was to fire dark greys with greens as well with a hopper but right now it doesn't work so well. I think the barrel has some friction in it from the way I set it up. I could loosen it up but I'm just going to redesign the gun anways. Should I continue? Or shall I try making a bolt action gun similar to Zak's (but different enough)? Or I'll try something completely new.

S0lekill3r's Oodammo Shotbow Review

Here is my review for the Oodammo Shotbow by s0lekill3r: Power: 7/10, it could be more but the bands have to push two rams, not one. Range: 7/10, as above really. Looks: 9/10, it may not have been made for looks (I don't know)but it certainly looks great, especially in metallic pieces, like almost everything. Accuracy: 9/10, I doubt it could go higher seeing as it uses the special 'oodammo' but I've decided to leave room for improvement as a new kind of technique may be developed. Using just two green rods and a complete hinge you can make an accurate sight. Comfort: 5/10, the handle is a bit of a fail as it requires a broken piece in order to be more comfortable (blue connector). The firing pin 'tray' also goes into your thumb. Ease of use: 7/10, the ram is very easy to use and pull back but the loading technique is a bit confusing as you have to:- remove the ammo pushers, insert oodammo and get it in the grooves then place back the ammo pushers. All in all, I would rate it 8/10 but a definite build (once s0lekill3r has posted instructions), it's very fun to play with and can fire fast if you use it correctly. Good work s0lekill3r.

MAKE THIS believe me u will like it...hopefully lol long story short it is designed to b as good as i can get it the new mods allow for interchangeable grips a slide can easily be attached w/out any body changes the firing pin is stronger than ever w/ less friction than ever which equals more power try out the mods for yourself and as always be safe and have fun! thanks guys Zak inspired trigger mod is the final pic...it is a must have mod! -thanks Zak
