Is the word "neat" old fashioned?

I'm about to write an English press release for my product CameraClip. English is not my first language. I would like to use the word "neat' to emphasize that the product is small, smart and cheap. Is "neat" an old fashioned word in this context? If so, what alternatives could I use? Hope to hear from you all.

Instructables Song

I've been working on a song for a while on guitar but I haven't been able to come up with lyrics. Then I was thinking, what about a song about Instructables? I don't know if anybody here has ever heard End of the World by REM, but the tune I have now would be good for a fast paced song like that. So anyway, does anybody want to make any special requests to be included in the song? Like, people, events, topics, instructables, or achievements. I'm going to try to include all of the main things about Instructables as well. --EDIT-- After reading the posts I figure it would be better to not use the song I have but to use something else. For example like the song on the Discovery Channel. So anyway I'm just going to sort of switch over this topic to just Instructables song Ideas. Thanks, D.T ~Rockerx~

Why is there suddenly a plethora (I love that word) of three star rated questions? Answered

If you look on page 2 of Answers, there are only 2 or 3 questions on the page that haven't been rated.  Not that I really care one way or the other, it just struck me as strange that it seems to have suddenly started and piqued my curiosity. **Note: Actually, there are times when I wish I could pick more than one answer as Best.  Several of you would have gotten one here. As it is now, I'm going to give this one to Re-design, because I really like his suggestion and I think it is worthy of consideration by Instructables management.

Has anyone seen the online fridge magnet game recently? Answered

A couple of years ago there was a website where you could drag letters around, fridge magnet style, to form words and phrases to your heart's content. The snag was that others would be doing the same, pinching your letters, modifying your words etc. You could do the same to them. A brilliant time waster, but I can't find it now. Anyone seen it recently?

rating system

It just occurred to me that Instructable ratings are based in part on the necessity to return to the Instructable to review instructions. Instructables that have steps that are intuitive and/or easy to remember may not get any ratings. In other words good ratings equal Instructable complicated enough to require several visits. That leaves number of views. With a nude or two you could probably get a lot of visitors and a very high rating as well. ;-(

Auto-Loading 10 Shot Rifle Review *By Ratchet and Clank*

Hey guys! Today, I'm going to be reviewing a 10 shot, auto-loading rifle by Bannana Inventor. Some notes before I start. -All credit goes to the builder, not me. -I'm rating on a 1 to 5 scale. -I review guns by request.(the dragonuv is up next) Ok. Now that you have that. I'll start the review. Handle/Gripping-3.8 The handle could have been a little slimmer. Plus there isn't really a good front grip-type-thing.(Yes. I had no word for that situation.) Range-4.5 Pretty good, especially for its size, and the fact that it is a magazine-fed gun. I got mine about 35 feet. Accuracy-5.0*** One word- Pinpoint. Power-3.0 It's power is restricted, since the bullet is so light. But for the bullet, it has some power. Body/weight balance-5.0*** Great balance throughout the gun. The body isn't flimsy. Stock is comfortable. But on a note, which was stated by The Jamalam, it was made by him and used on his storm guns. Credit goes to him. And now one word. AWESOMENESS!!! Reliability-4.0 Since the magazine uses blue 3-d connectors, you have that millimeter sized jut on the inside of the magazine. So, the magazine sometimes jams, but you only have to push up slightly on the magazine ram. OVERALL-4.2!!!!!!!!!! Overall, great rifle. Auto-loading is a good feature, and a true trigger pleases a lot of k'nexers. Take those, and you get a gun like this. One of Bannana Inventor's best. Review by Ratchet and Clank. Gun by Bannana Inventor Thanks for reading this review! I hope you enjoyed it! Good luck building this, becouse this rifle is a must in your arsenal.

new knex pump action

Please try to make it off of my crude drawing. If you post an ible please give me credit or tell me if it has been done. If so post link. The way it works is when you pump it the pusher hits the top most ammo. That pushes it onto the ammo lifter. When you pump forward  that pulls the string which raises the ammo lifter. That then becomes part of the bottom of the barrel. Then you cock the gun and fire. Repeat. P.S. The scriblls on the paper are not hyroglfics they are words.

Cinderblock - To paint or not to paint

I always had this question in my mind.  Was the cinderblock designed to breathe?  In other words do we want the moisture to go from one side to the other in case of cinderblock walls (say in the basement walls?)  Logically, I would think that the answer is that we want to prevent the moisture to go from one side to the other.  If that is the case, why the cinderblock makers do not make waterproof cinderblocks by adding water proofing chemicals during the manufacturing process? I would greatly appreciate your insights on this subject.
