Broadway Photo... scammers?

Well ive had my eye on the Canon Eos Digital Rebel xTi for quite some time now.I found bwayphoto.com and was amazed at their price (body + two lenses = $597)!here's the link: Canon Eos Digital Rebel xTi on bwayphoto.comI've been doing research on both the camera and the website.The camera i am happy with. I love canon cameras, especially their easy-to-use UI, and the reviews are wonderful. It's the site that I am worried about... I have read reviews on it and there are so many bad reviews on it! I bought my camcorder from the site a couple years ago, but my mom did it for me so I don't really know whether she had any problems or not (she doesn't remember either).Actually, she might have fallen for their scams because she bought me an extra battery along with it... anyway... Before i make any decisions, I'm curious if any of you trusty Instructablers have ever used the site (or any of the sites affiliated with the company) and whether or not you are happy with it. There isn't a better price i can find online or in stores, so I'm having a hard time deciding whether or not i should just go for it and have my mom negotiate with them and whatnot...So should I stick with bwayphoto.com and try them out for this, or should i spend more money on the same camera (minus one lense) at a more reliable source?

Oven blows up and no photos.

My wife was making potato wedges last night when in the middle of cooking the bottom burner catches fire and starts to sparkle like a party sparkler. I run for my camera and when I get back to the kitchen its over my wife turned off the stove and when I turned the stove back on nothing happens. Now that the fun part is over does anyone want me to do an Instructable on how to repair an oven element? The white marks are from the electrical fire.

Night Photos of Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch

Jonathan Haeber shot some inspiring night photos of Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch. Haeber gained access to Neverland somehow and shot many beautiful photos which are available on Flickr.Apparently Jackson's 2,500 acre children-only amusement park was up for auction tomorrow due to a debt of $24 million that Jackson was carrying on the land. Luckily (?) it was announced yesterday that Jackson was going to be able to save the ranch from auction.What's this got to do with Instructables? It's easy to see from the photos that just about everything in the Neverland Ranch is custom made and tailored specifically for the needs of Jackson and the children. Such craftsmanship, so unique, so well executed - could Michael Jackson be the ultimate Maker?via Laughing Squid

Right, that's it for a while - I'm away on holiday tomorrow morning, a week in Devon.Beaches, buildings four times older than America, and the Eden Project.I may even get my kites flying! (Edit: No, I didn't. The beaches were too narrow, too crowded or too non-existent to fly from. The one decent beach we found for kiting (Slapton Sands) was windless the day we went) PhotosI've uploaded selected images to my Flickr account:http://www.flickr.com/photos/76333500@N00/sets/There are two sets there, the Steam Fair and the Eden project.Sorry, no stills of the Stirling engines (what was thinking??), just this video.

Any ideas on how to make this giant photo frame?

Hi! I'm slightly obsessed with this giant photo frame (see attached). I'm pretty sure it's just a concept / one-off, and it's not something I'd be able to afford anyways, so I'm considering how to DIY it. I've got some good ideas for the outer frame rim, but I can't come up with a way to make the huge back plate and matt that would look nice and not be too heavy. For the backplate I could probably use posterboard or 3mm MDF, but I'm not sure of how to join two or more sheets together that won't significantly add to the weight. At this size there will also be some serious stability issues - it'll need some sort of cross bracing. For the matt, I think I could maybe just use nice cardboard and cut the picture holes by hand, carefully lining up adjacent sheets. Proper matt material I think would be way too expensive for something that size. Any ideas? Thanks Alex

recording photo frame mod to mini amp/speakers

I bought a little recording photo frame at Walmart tonight for $2.88. Sadly someone had been testing it and the batteries are dead, so I can't check the volume til I can get new ones. What I'm wondering is whether anyone had altered one of these or something similar to make it mini amp w/speaker. I'm wanting to install something like this in some small stringed instruments(dulcimers) I'm making that don;t have much volume on their own. I've looked at all the altoid ideas and mini amps and mini speakers, but didn't see anything that would do what I need. Most were just for ipods. I did see one that used a spy ear and that's what gave me the idea for this. I have one of the cheap little clear plastic spy ears somewhere, but couldn't find it tonight I would be ok for picking up the sound, but I don;t think mounting the earphones on the instrument would give enough sound. The soundbox on my larger. dulcimers did ampllfy some earphones I got at Dollar Tree, but not much. I would add pics of the circuit board of this recorder, but my camera is dead. I would really appreciate any help with this. I need to keep the cost down as much as possible in order to keep the dulcimers affordable. The ones I am making are more a novelty item, so I can't price them too high.

I made a draft, even tho it made me add photos I did not have, and one would not display, so I replaced that one, but the thing put that photo in another "step" that I was not making, and it made 2 steps in the wrong order, because it wanted me to have a title or introduction step with photo, so I did that but it put step 1 on the end of step 2, with photos.   Now, it won't let me publish the draft and call it an instructable.  What should I do to right this thing into published state?   AfrikaansAlbanianArabicArmenianAzerbaijaniBasqueBelarusianBulgarianCatalanChinese (Simplified)Chinese (Traditional)CroatianCzechDanishDetect languageDutchEnglishEstonianFilipinoFinnishFrenchGalicianGeorgianGermanGreekHaitian CreoleHebrewHindiHungarianIcelandicIndonesianIrishItalianJapaneseKoreanLatinLatvianLithuanianMacedonianMalayMalteseNorwegianPersianPolishPortugueseRomanianRussianSerbianSlovakSlovenianSpanishSwahiliSwedishThaiTurkishUkrainianUrduVietnameseWelshYiddish⇄AfrikaansAlbanianArabicArmenianAzerbaijaniBasqueBelarusianBulgarianCatalanChinese (Simplified)Chinese (Traditional)CroatianCzechDanishDutchEnglishEstonianFilipinoFinnishFrenchGalicianGeorgianGermanGreekHaitian CreoleHebrewHindiHungarianIcelandicIndonesianIrishItalianJapaneseKoreanLatinLatvianLithuanianMacedonianMalayMalteseNorwegianPersianPolishPortugueseRomanianRussianSerbianSlovakSlovenianSpanishSwahiliSwedishThaiTurkishUkrainianUrduVietnameseWelshYiddish Detect language » Hungarian

First image uploaded to web - subjects of photo splitting up (don't tell Kelseymh!)

From the BBC: An all-female doo-wop band whose image is believed to have been the first photo uploaded to the fledgling world wide web is to play its final gig. Les Horribles Cernettes take their swansong at the Hardronic Festival at the Cern laboratory in Geneva - the birthplace of the web. A picture of the women was uploaded to the web on 18 July, 1992, by web creator - and fan - Tim Berners-Lee. He wanted it to test out the version of the web he was working on at Cern. Press tornado The band was founded in 1990 by Michele de Gennaro who worked at Cern as a graphic designer. The Cernettes get their name from the initials of the giant particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider, used at Cern to investigate fundamental physics. The group has won fame in scientific circles by performing at Cern social gatherings and physics conferences. The women sing classic 60s pop songs, as well as their own compositions such as Microwave Love, Collider and My Sweetheart is a Nobel Prize. The gig on 21 July at the annual Cern music festival will be their first performance for five years - and is billed as their last. Jim Halley, manager of the band, said there had been a huge upsurge of interest in the band because of the anniversary of the image being uploaded to the web. The band was even featured on the US talkshow hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, said Mr Halley. "This photo was one of those that changed the web, from a platform for physics documentation, to a media for our lives," [the band] said. Les Horribles Cernettes.

ZipDart prototyping help

OK, had an idea and went with it for my ZipDart V.2. Unfortunately, currently having a bit of a brain fart of how to put a ratchet mech in. I've tried 7 attempts, 3 have even actuated and of those three none were responsive enough to be at all deserving of the ZipDart name. There is a google photo album linked below of the mech area and the gun on a whole. Feel free to comment either there or here with any ideas or insight. The mech can be complicated, just so long as it takes less than a half an inch of actuation rod travel to actuate and is fairly strong. Thanks for any help--if anyone has any questions or wants any more pictures, just ask. Photo album
