Prayer, the dictionary defines prayer as A solemn request for help or expression of thanks addressed to God. I recently went on a missions trip with my dad to Nicaragua and every night my mom would call and talk to me and my dad, I really enjoyed being talked to and I caught myself thinking ,God enjoys being talked to way more than i do ,though he already knew what your going say and do before you were born. Prayer is not a quick fix, or a click your heels three times, Prayer works, it wont always be yes. What kind of Father would he be if when his children asked for something, he said yes all the time. If you have Prayer requests for you or someone else, if its a private matter, just say you would like to be prayed for,and me and the prayer team will do our best to pray for you.

Hi all, I have been scouring the web and have yet to find what I am looking for. I have seen a couple of different LED lights embedded in outlet covers and switchplates, but I need to do-it-myself because whoever cut the outlet holes in my house clearly had the shakes, and I want to convert the larger size custom covers I need to have LED lights especially for the kitchen and the bathrooms. I also want to put them into covers that have unusual configurations, such as two outlets and a switch, etc. I have a few things I need. (1) it cannot prevent full use of the outlet (I don't have any to spare) (2) I need to be able to use amber lighting so as not to have the normal blue of standard white LED lighting wake me up, which should be easy enough. (3) I would really love to be able to add them to GFCI outlets, too, but my understanding of how those work is limited. Any suggestions would be gratefully received. I'm good with electronics right up until it involves building your own circuits, but my electrical skills pretty much top out at re-wiring a lamp, understanding how many amps it is safe to pull in a house circuit and how not to electrocute myself. I want to do this right, so it's stable long term and safe. Again, thanks for any help, folks. -Lois

'Sup people, K'nex.X here, I got something to ask you, does anyone has any ideas for a new K'nex gun? I've practically ran dry and I'd love to have something new to work on. Don't come showing me pictures of models, I'm talking about real innovation like bolt action, lever action and/or semi auto's with a potential range over 30 feet. Next, I got an idea. What if we stop focussing on making models, replicating them as best as we can with the limited forms of k'nex pieces? We could focus on real innovation, the world needs about a 100 more Oblivitus and Kinetic's. Just check it out. Even though most have given up hopes, there are still loads of ideas to improve, perform or make. Take a look at thedunkis' forum topics, Oblivitus' concepts I'ble and Kinetic's mechs. For example, I'm now working on a bullpup, bolt action, horizontal magazine gun. Concepts are far more challenging than replicas. Just try it out for yourself. Another thing, the veterans left. So stop making a 1001 forum topics about where everybody is, they have left. Mepain, DJRadio, Oodalumps, Zak, Shadowninja31, Coolbas, Killer-safecracker, IamCanadian, KILLERK. They all left. stop complaining, instead of whining, go out there and design something new! The red book of westmarch, Senior waffleman, Drrichtofen and all the awesome new(er) guys. You are the future of K'nex guns! Yours sincerely, Knex.X

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.

There are constant reports of high lead levels in many toys, as well as new findings that lead is an even more dangerous neurotoxin than previously believed. Does anyone have the chemical background to devise a simple home test for lead levels in toys? My thoughts are that a number of toys would be place in a bathtub, and a leeching agent would be added which would dissolve some of any lead present. The dilute solution in the tub would then be tested by a standard home water supply lead test. This could possibly be a great service... Thanks!

Hi Everybody!The site admins were recently approached by an individual who wishes to share a project on the site, but is unable to write out the steps due to specific health issues. If you have authored a handful of Instructables yourself and would be interested in collaborating with this person, the task would essentially be to organize photos into steps and type out some details of the project in written form.This is a neat opportunity and something a little different, and we will try to help coordinate as best we can.

I'm far from knocking you guys because I used to be a LEGO monster. I've also seen some impressive projects and the skills are there in a BIG way. Why not start a place where people can challenge your skills? Not only will you hone your skills, you will be building stuff you have no clue about and in the process there is no telling what you will learn. I'm willing to bet there are some cats around here that would be more than willing to keep you in a steady supply of good challenges.

I had nothing better to do so I decided to build a mini pistol for the heck of it. Very little effort was put into this so don't expect much. I guess it's something simple you could build plenty of for small wars with friends indoors. Well there's not much else to say. It gets max pin use from the tan rod pin so it should be satisfying range wise. It's durable enough to survive some small falls on carpet for sure. I just reset the trigger manually each time so that I didn't have to waste another rubber band. You can push it back while the pin is still resting but it'll catch once you pull it back. I didn't bother putting a mag pusher on but that shouldn't be hard to do. You can extend the handle if you want to. By the way I sort of discovered a new barrel. Away with black hand barrels. If you stick a green rod in the gaps like so but also do so on the other side, it creates a barrel that fits rods quite well. Until someone fulfills my request in my other thread, I'm at a lost for project ideas. Any requests? Something small preferably.

Hey I think someone started something like this already but I don't know what happened to it or if it is still active so I started my own. It's located Here or there or how about right here?So yeah come here for a quick chat. It will probably be easier than spamming topics with a useless conversation like the ones you could have in the chat. When you get there and you haven't joined Xat yet then click on your name to change it and your avatar. I'm most likely going to need at least 2-3 (depending on how many actually do come regularly) mods. There are a few rules and if you don't follow then then you will be first kicked as a warning and then banned for a day. If you still continue to break rules you'll be perma. banned from the chat.~Rules~-You may curse but only lightly and not at others. It has to stop when/if there is someone who requests it for the duration that they are there.-No fighting. You must respect everyone. If you disrespect an owner or a mod then you will automatically skip from getting a kick to getting banned for the day.-You may talk about other things but I do request you do stay relatively on topic for the most part.-Please remain in the chat while you are online. It helps me and the main reason people who aren't on a chat room are because no one else is. It starts a chain reaction of inactivity.Alright have fun you guys. I like talking to all of you personally so this will sure be fun for me to meet more of my fellow knexers.

Alright as some of you might have guessed I am trying to organize the knexables community by starting threads to hold all common subjects in one place. This one is where we shall make all our requests. To start it off I desperatly need to know does anyone have/ could make quickly an airsoft speed loader? I tried and well I didn't fail but I didn't get anywhere and I'm tired of trying. I really need a speedloader but at the same time I don't need to spend the money online ( I have none in town) for a cheap piece of plastic when I already have decent pieces of plastic to make stuff with. In fact let's make a competition out of it. Let's see who could make the best Airsoft speedloader out of knex. It would be something that even the knex haters who have knex would find useful and would want to make. Alright these are the things I'd be rating: -Size to Capacity Ratio. Preferably of a small size that can hold at least 120ish -Ease of use. Simple as being able to hold it comfortably and pushing the button or doing whatever you choose we must to do use it. -Reliability. The less we have to worry about the better. It should work without many worries of it failing or leaking. It should also be at least as sturdy as a real one. I'm careful during airsoft battles but I'm also known to do things like rolling dives and stuff because I like showing off so it should be a good prop lol. And remember I'm talking about a good spead loader that loads rounds multiple times not a one-use speed loader.

I'll be making one for me, but I'm looking to earn some money so I'm curious if anybody would be interested in buying a second one for themselves. Keep in mind this won't be cheap, it will cost up to $100 in parts alone. While I don't have a lot of experience, I have a lot of skill (see my tvbgone sonic screwdriver for an example). Lastly, keep in mind this is not a sale yet, just gauging interest so I know whether or to make a second one. Leave comments here on requests for aesthetic features, and PM me if you have a price you'd be willing to pay. Please only reply if you're serious. Expect to see a sale post sometime in July, I'll be going by best offer.
