Anyone remember this?

Hey there everyone! I was just going through some of my old stuff (trying to find loot for new projects), and I came across this gem. I got this for Christmas 25 years ago and I have held onto it for some reason. It wasn't until I started poking around this site and building again, that I realized why i have kept it. This it what got me interested in electronics.....well not really, I believe this was given to me to curb my random destruction of electronics around our house ;). So I want to say thank you to my dad, whom at the time saw an interest and tried to encourage it. So let me know if you remember this and if anyone still has one!

Looking for a particular Instructable!

Hiya, I've been sending myself nuts looking for an Instructable that I happened across earlier today.  I can't seem to find it now but I can give a description of the front page. It is a fold down (or up) surf shack table... the image is a chap in a white room with lots of compartments and he is putting the table back up. I'm sure it was featured in the newsletter but I'm not sure as I can't find it in my inbox. I hope someone can help, I wanna get crackin! Thank you Georgina :)

LED powered party

So me and some friends a month ago got together and threw a party together last minute. Well it was more then just a hit, people turned around and begged us for more. So now that we have cred for this "epic" party which really was just random shit tossed together in a house in an hours time. So this time around we are going to go all out and spend our budget fully. But my job is to do his house like my room: I only have LEDs for lights. But the LEDs I used for my room I bought at radio shack and thus paid top dollar for them. Which was fine, for my room, but a house? I need bulk. Bulk LEDs, bulk resistors, bulk wire. But that's only half the problem, I was told my deadline was the 23rd. Well even with this short time frame I still need some good bulk dealers. Does anyone have any good links to places that sell LEDs in bulk? I'm looking to spend around 50 bucks or so on the lights. As I do this project though I will either make an inscrutable out of it or the very least a slide show!*

Good Soundproofing and Deadening materials and any other tips?

Hey guys, so I'm involved in the biggest project I've embarked upon yet.  Shack studios.  I do some work with a sound company, the owner of which is a good friend, we're building a recording studio, along with practice rooms, photography/graphics dept and CD printing etc. Essentially a one stop shop for bands and musicians to go from songs on paper to an album...  Anyway, we have pretty much all the recording equipment and all the amps, PAs etc for the practice rooms.  However the construction work, which consists of walling off two sounds booths (small dead rooms, one vocals the other for drums/amped instruments) and walling out two large practice rooms, the front of which is the main recording area, overlooked by the control room has to be done on a shoestring budget, we've just got in the boards and supplies for framing up the walls and though we've culled good dense foam from some industrial generator packaging and elsewhere we need good suggestions for cavity filling.  The cheaper the better - No practices will be going on while recording, it needs to be deadened to the outside world and sound proof enough for practices to go on simultaneously.  We've been looking at different ideas but it's more just good sources of material anyone can think of...  Oh and while that's going on I'm trying to get a ton of things off the ground as well, while being what can only be described as embarassingly broke...
