Instructables Internship - Day 4

Alo Again,Well, this morning I didn't have the opportunity to burn my PB sandwich, not only because it was a PB&J sandwich, but because the oven was filled with semi-burnt roasted tomatoes/garlic.Anyhow, Today I did some more outreach for the new Launch It! Contest and... drumroll please.... Billy and I shipped all of the remaining Laser Cutter Contest Winners' prizes! Woo Hoo! Other than that, the morning was pretty chill. I'm getting used to the much more relaxed setting here at Instructables. At all of my other internships I've had, everything was always so fast-paced, tense, and ridiculously demanding. At Instructables, everyone's just Chill. Everyone enjoys what they're doing. It's awesome.Also, I downloaded the Instructables MySQL dumpfile from Rachel, and I'm in the process of getting it back into MySQL. Eventually, I'm going to try and make some cool new statistic features for you guys!Billy and I tested out some LEDs and my ultra-thin/flexible solar panels, which are hella awesome. The specs say that they get 3V @ 22 mA max in the sunlight, but yesterday, I got that in the shade. In the sunlight?: 4.19V!After that, Jason, Billy, Noah and I checked out the Water Jet in Instructables' machine shop. Billy had to cut some stuff for a project of his, but watching the machine "do its thing" was really cool. There's so much awesome stuff here, I still can't believe it.Noah, Jason, and I then picked out some stuff that was going to get thrown out to use in Proj. X, and we ordered the Surgical Tubing, too!Then, Jason, Mike (Works for Potenco), and I went to the beach to check out the kite boarders, and fly the trainer kite. (Eventually, we'll get to kite board, too!)Alright, I think that I'm actually going to go get started on Proj. X now...I've included some pictures that I've taken throughout the day.Cheers,-MuffinatorP.S. I came up with an awesome badge idea, and I'll draw it up today on the computer. I'll post it by tonight, so make sure you tell me if you like it or not!

Does/Did anyone here play sports?

Does or has anyone here played sports? Which sport did you play? Were you pro? I'm currently trying out for my football team at school, so if I make it, my Instructables usage will decrease sharply. Thank goodness it ends in November. Well, now it's your turn.

Come check out my new Instructable, Learn about Triboluminescence (aka, Lightning in Your Mouth!) (please?)

This is in case it doesn't show up on the Recent list, as it has been getting stuck a bit. The premise for this Instructable is that when certain "things" get broken apart, they spark. I focus on one main "thing", WintOGreen LifeSavers. I hope y'all enjoy it, and if anyone have any questions or corrections, you can post them here or on the Instructable. Thank you, and good luck to all others who entered the Science Fair Contest.Instructable

Grenades

This is a topic for showing off your grenades or grenade designs that you are working on. Below are a couple of pictures I took of my grenade design, and a picture of damage done after I threw the grenade. In order for the grenade to go off, it has to impact something hard, so it probably wont go off if it hits a person, but it will still hurt them =). The grenade can be small or big. The grenades have to fall from a relatively high distance, so they probably wont work well inside. Now that I have told you about my grenade, now it is time for you to tell me about your grenades. Danke.

Three Sided Truth

Global Consciousness Project – Long Term ExperimentI've been watching the GCP for over 4 years. I would like to create a permanent visual installation based on acquired data from the EGG database. The installation will be a tetrahedron, displaying past, present, and the "so-called" probable data. No explanation of what the display portrays. Mysterious as it will be, time and historical data will stir subconscious minds to recognize patterns. I believe this is the perfect device that will develop questions within closed minds and thus in time, answers.Read up on GCP here: Princeton GCPI have a physical design in mind for the installation. I would like to lead the creative task force for creating such a device. I'm wondering if I can find people here that would be interested in helping with the internal electrical and mechanical engineering that will be needed to operate the device. Serious minds needed only. This is a long-term project possibly taking several months to a year to complete. Funding will be provided once the preliminary concept is thoroughly defined. I would like to see that these devices are scattered across the globe and placed in highly visible areas.The domain name ThreeSidedTruth.com has been registered for this project. I hope to find some interested minds.threesidedtruth@gmail.com~ Demannu

Some php trouble with Dreamweaver

I'm giving my sister a hand with her pharmacy website for the university she goes to. And we got a link on the main page: Pharmacy main page . The link is for the phrosh (frosh with a p due to it being "pharmacy" har har, I know). If you look on the phrosh page itself: Phrosh information . The thing is that it's supposed to have the same grey tile as the main page, and on my sister's computer (she sent me a screenshot) she's got the background on there, but you can't actually see it online.. Any ideas guys? Thanks.

Instructables Internship - Day 3

Hello Again!So, What did I do today...During breakfast this morning I wrote up yesterday's log, which was exciting yet depressing... because of the burnt Peanut Butter Sandwich... no, that wasn't the top-secret project, DON'T WORRY!Other than that...hmm, well, initially, I just made some new "homepage images," then Billy and I attacked the semi-old yet miserably slow laptop that was attached to the "new" laser cutter and cleaned that out. Yeah, we made it run nice and fast =)After that, NoahW and I went out to Trader Joe's for Salad Club shopping. Yep, today was our day to cool lunch!Noah brought his mini-barbecue and we bbq'ed steak, chicken, and tofu! YUM! We also prepared a HUGE salad, which I'm not used to, 'cause I've never made salad before. For all of you who don't know how to make salad, basically, you get to kill a bunch of vegetables with a large, sharp, blade... VERY ENTERTAINING!Unfortunately, I forgot the muffin tin from "home" (Eric and Christy's House), so I wasn't able to bake muffins... there's always next week, though!After lunch, Jason, Noah, and I went out to home depot to get supplies for the top-secret project... I think I'll call it Proj. X, from now on. Anyway, we got all of the materials that we're going to need for Proj. X except for the surgical tubing V_v... it was just too darned expensive, so we're just going to order it online.However, tomorrow, we can start building! YAY!I'm starting to write up a new Instructable on my Hypercube Bubble maker, which should be published relatively soon. I'M EXCITED!I've also started on a template for the Instructables Badges, hopefully those will be rolling out of the laser cutter relatively soon, too!Umm... what else? Well, I MIGHT be able to make Cotton Candy Machine (Mark III) here! Unfortunately, I'm not allowed to use any of the heavy machinery (ie. the lathe), so I'll teach Billy how to use it and he could make my parts for me! This, However, depends on how much time I have to spend on projects, and if I'm willing to buy the aluminum (= a lot of $)Just for any of you who hadn't read my previous posts, I'm having the time of my life here at Instructables, and if you end up producing really nice Instructables, you might get the opportunity to intern, too! Remember, if there's a will, there's a way!Cheers,-MuffinatorP.S. I've included a picture of the view from my room. Yeah, I know, I had to make it all artsy... it's the Oakland Skyline at Night. It looks pretty cruddy in the "preview", so take a look at the full-sized image by clicking on the "I" in the upper left hand corner on the picture.

How we select Instructables Interns

Instructables has had a number of truly excellent interns including numberandom, fungus amungus, noahw, randofo, Tetranitrate, trebuchet03, reno_dakota, jessiep, and T3h_Muffinator. Our internships are primarily intended as a learning experience, and if I can't convince these awesome people to join Instructables full-time when they're ready, I'm still really happy when they find something better: Noahw and fungus amungus are now both on staff at Instructables, numberandom has joined the Squid Labs spin-out company Potenco, and randofo is a resident at Eyebeam. The rest of the crowd is still in school, but I'm certain they're also going to have impact.Choosing interns is tough, and we do it in a variety of methods. I've interviewed candidates, encouraged people I've worked with before or known for a long time to considering joining, reviewed peoples' work on the site through their Instructables, or through their resumes and portfolios. For example, I had never met, nor even spoken with, Tetranitrate and trebuchet03 before I sent them messages offering internship positions; I knew from their writing and the way they interacted on the site that they were people I wanted to work with. Conversely, in just half an hour of chatting, both noahw and numberandom impressed me enough that I wanted to work with them too. Much of what we do here is completely public (as evidenced by T3h_Muffinator's awesome intern journal entries). How someone behaves as a user is a pretty good indicator of how they'll behave as an intern. So, if you're thinking that you'd like to join us, one of the best things to do is to post a couple of great Instructables. If you're local, but aren't quite sure this is the thing for you, Tim is always looking for people to help him document. If you have a portfolio, try documenting a few of your projects on Instructables; if that doesn't work, send your portfolio along and we'll have a look. If you don't have a portfolio, make one (preferably on Instructables!). I think this is a fun place to work. There's always lots of good food, and, if the season is right, kitesurfing lessons.

"You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete."-Buckminster FullerThis is such a great quote- that's what we always strive to do. Everyone who makes, builds, or creates should probably adopt this as their motto, because such paradigm shifts are the only real way to change the world.

Instructables Internship - Day 2

Hello Again!Well, it's been Day 2 for me, here at Instructables, and truthfully; I'm having a blast!So, what'd I do today? Well, I cut A TON of stickers out for the launch of the new Instructables Store. I did some more "outreach" work (mainly having to do with the science fair contest), and I tried to find places where I could get some surgical tubing for the top-secret project ;).I also started working on posting 2 new instructables that I have already built, they should be up in a reasonable amount of time, hopefully.I found out another thing about Instructables, today. Everyone is excited about everyone else's work. You see, Billy (Tetranitrate) has this new project that he's working on, which is actually going to be super-super-awesome, and everyone's just so interested in his progress, it's pretty amazing. Even with site updates and layouts and stuff, everyone is so interested in everything, it's just awesome. I've been at other internships where the employees don't even get along, but here, they collaborate in getting stuff done. Oh boy, I love it here just a bit too much.OH, That's right! I worked on some images for the new, yes, I said new, homepage layout/design! I'm actually really excited about it, mostly because I'm bored of looking at all of the same images EVERY SINGLE TIME I come to the site, and also because I get to pick some of what's going to be used on the new homepage. You know, the best part of interning here is being able to give back to Instructables, and the DIY Community as a whole. However, being able to do what you want after lunch is pretty sweet, too. Tomorrow, I think Noah (NoahW) and Jason (The other intern) and I are going to pick up our materials, pick up some muffin mix for salad club and other assorted foodstuffs, and get to work on our top-secret project.Btw, I started thinking up a design for Instructables badges, and depending on when I learn how to use the laser cutter, I'll make 'em ASAP!Cheers,-Muffinatorp.s.: Sigh, I burned my Peanut Butter Sandwich this morning.... The picture looks nice, though...

a few LED questions

I have been modding my ps2, It's been painted a window mod, and I'm thinking about adding a flip top. but for my next mod I'm going to install 2 yellow LEDs, to light up the window mod, so far I have 3 places I can wire them to, directly to the mother board which is12v of power, on the fan power supply which is around 7v, or the usb which I read was 5v, the LEDs are 2.1v and I have 2 of them. Which area is the best to hook them to, and is their any way I could do this without using a resistor, radio shack is closed, and I would like to finish this tonight, so the only way I could get a resistor would be to steal one from some other random electronic thing I have laying around. also (just making sure) if LEDs are wired in series, will the voltage be halved between the 2, if so then the 5 volt usb, will be at 2.5v when it's split, will this work or is a resistor still needed?

Revolver with swing out cylinder

I was looking at guns on Wikipedia and saw a pic of a revolver with a swing out cylinder. I went straight to work and made the swing out cylinder, but I couldn't figure out how to make the rest of the gun and keep the cylinder from moving all over the place. I don't have a digital camera, but I can tell you how I made it. 1. Take a blue rod 2. Attach a dark grey connector on 1 end of the rod 3. Put 1 grey cylinder spacer on the rod, followed by 2 blue ring spacers 4. Put the blue rod through the hole of another dark grey connector 5. Put 2 more blue ring spacers on, followed by 1 more grey cylinder spacer and attach 1 more dark grey connector to the other end of the blue rod 6. Take 1 white rod and snap on 2 white snowflake connectors, then snap the rod into the dark grey connector in the middle of the blue rod (the dark grey connector should be in the middle of the 2 white snowflake connectors) 7. Take another white rod and attach a dark grey connector on 1 end of it, then slide the white rod through the hole of 1 of the dark grey connectors on the blue rod, then slide on another grey cylinder spacer and attach 1 yellow connector on top of the white rod 8. Do #7, but on the other side of the blue rod 9. For the handle, I took 3 green connectors and snapped them on to 1 white rod, then put 3 small green rods on the bottom of each green connector (Look below to find a little bit better explanation) 10. Take 3 yellow connectors and attach them to a white rod, then connect all 3 to the 3 green rods mentioned in #9 11. Take 3 more green connectors and attach them to a white rod and add 3 small green rods to the top of the 3 green connectors and attach them to the 3 yellow connectors in #10 BETTER EXPLANATION 1. A green connector has 4 places for 4 rods (I will call them teeth) 2. From left to right, it goes empty tooth, white rod, empty tooth, small green rod 3. A yellow connector has 5 teeth for 5 rods 4. From left to right, it goes small green rod (from the green connectors mentioned above), white rod, empty tooth, empty tooth, small green rod 5. Same as #2, but it goes small green rod (from the yellow connectors mentioned above), white rod, empty tooth, empty tooth If anyone knows what I'm talking about and makes these pieces & has a digital camera, please take pics and show me so ppl can see what I'm talking about. Also, if anyone finds out how to make the rest of the gun, please tell me and show me how you made it (but please don't take credit for my design of the cylinder & handle. If you mod/have to mod any of these 2 parts to make the rest of the gun, don't forget to credit me for the original design of the 2 parts). Also, if anyone does make the gun, please post an instructable for it. I would love to see the gun that I almost got to make. So please tell me where to go to get the instructable I you decide to post it. Also, the gun doesn't have to shoot anything. Thanks to everyone that contributes.

Metal Gear Solid Guns

I'm also looking for guns from one of the greatest games (at least to me), Metal Gear Solid. My top 5 requests are: 1. The SOCOM 2. The USP 3. The FAMAS 4. The Mauser C96 (The gun Eva uses in Snake Eater) 5. P90 (The gun Solidus Snake uses in Sons Of Liberty) Of course, all other guns from Metal Gear will also be appreciated as well, so if anybody who knows where I can find the instructable for any of these, or if anyone knows how to make it themselves (or is up to the challenge of trying to make them), please reply and tell me where to go (or what it will be called, if you need time to make it and put it up). I believe that it is possible to make at least 2 or 3 of these guns. Thanks to everyone that joins in the cause of making these guns, or at least telling me where to find the instructables for them, and happy building.

Instructables Internship - Day 1

Hey Everyone!I just arrived in Oakland from New York last Saturday, at 10:30 AM. Canida and Tetranitrate arrived shortly thereafter to pick me up from the airport. Over the weekend, we went camping. Not something that you would expect out of an Internship, but here at Instructables, anything can happen. The trip was awesome, camping up in the very scenic Sierras was simply astonishing. I'll include some pictures of the trip at the end of this post.Today was my first day at Instructables HQ. After about 20 mintues in the Control Tower, I realized how awesome the rest of my stay would be. The environment here at Instructables is unbelievable. Everyone, and I do mean everyone is super-friendly. Instructables is seemingly just a large family, of which every member seamlessly gets along with every other member. This doesn't only apply to the website, but also to the staff here at HQ. Instructables is unlike any other Internship/program that I've been to/participated in. At first glance (after the tour, of course), Instructables has actually surpassed my expectations. I was expecting to see a lot of which I had already seen in the photos of HQ on Flickr and Instructables, but there is just so much more. There's so much to see, do, and get totally sidetracked on just while walking around. I'm just amazed that I'm here, and that I got the opportunity to work for such an awesome company.So, on to the details. I'm set up on a table in front of a huge window that looks out at the front entrance. I get "free lunch", because I joined "The Salad Club". That entails me making at least one lunch for everyone sometime during my two-week internship, and every other day I get to eat food that someone else is making for all of us, etc. etc... I get time, everyday, to do what I want to do, where "what I want to do" is defined by building something. Again, this is something that you would never expect from an internship. So, basically I work half the day, finding people that would potentially like to join the site, getting their e-mails, and telling Tetranitrate about them, and then the other half of the day I'm building. This is pretty much the sweetest deal that I could ever think of. 1/2 of the day, I get to look at cool DIY projects that people post on the internet, and the other half I get to build. I think that everyone should know how awesome Instructables really is. They really love their work, their company, and what they are giving to the How-To Community as a whole.Anyway,I'm so glad to be here, and I really can't believe that I am here, yet.-Muffinator

I highly reccomend

I just hooked up an outlet that I've had in my wall since I've re-dry walled my room, and it's by itself on a single wire, I just hooked it up to a breaker isolated from the rest of them on my panel, and have JUST my stereo plugged into it. All of a sudden my distortion problems I was having at near full volume are gone. I highly recommend running your stereo on a seperete outlet for you audio freaks out there!

What to with a couple Old Windsurfers? Maybe Catamaran?

I have a couple windsurfers I am trying to come up with ideas of something fun to do with. I tried to make one into a small sailboat with a fixed boat for a friend who was unable to learn to windsurf but the mast was too heavy and flipped over. I am thinking of putting a pvc pipe where the mast went and making a smaller sail. Has anyone tried to make a catamaran out of two windsurfers? Or maybe a trimaran with the windsurf board in the middle?
