Pro users receiving banner ads?

For a long while, the only ads I was seeing on Instructables pages were internal -- mostly examples of highly rated/featured I'bles, or contest announcements. Starting today (24 Mar 2010), I am seeing banner and sidebar ads.  This isn't a big deal, except that a lot of them have been those really annoying rollover-giant-box type.  This makes it quite cumbersome to navigate on the page, and in particular, to do anything where your mouse has to go near the masthead.

Do something w/ MacBook Air w/ broken display?

I am new to this site and I've found a lot of the ideas and guides very interesting. i have a late 2010 MacBook Air with a broken display. The most anyone has offered me for it is $100. After visiting this site I was wondering if there could be any possible uses for it? It works with external monitor. Any ideas? I'm supposed to meet someone later today to sell it to but am now having second thoughts thanks to this (and a similar site) here it is

"Massively Reduce Laser Etching Time"

The guys over at Redtorope.com have been addressing a way to reduce the cost of laser etched/cut projects when having a job done or reduce the wear and tear on one you or your company owns. It's not really a hack or a hardware fix, just an exercise in thinking within the operating parameters of the machine. Really well done and explained in such a way that others will be able to apply to their own projects. Well done fellas!  http://www.redtorope.com/2010/11/massively-reduce-laser-etching-time/

How to change diagram for EL Wire Inverter

As you all know, building it yourself is almost always cheaper! I've been doing a lot with EL Wire recently and I want to make my own inverters since the ones online can be pricey. There seem to be a LOT of ways to make an inverter. I liked this one in particular: http://www.timercircuitdiagram.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/cqs1263343377k.jpg What would I need to change to achieve an output of about 200v at about 500hz? I've read that this is optimal for EL wire.

Spanish fashion designer creates spray on clothing. Thoughts?

A Spanish fashion designer, with the help of the imperial college of London (I think I said that right?) has created "spray on clothes". Personally I think it's absolutely ridiculous and will never where clothes made like that, after all it's more like coating your body in silly string then wearing clothes, right? But, anyway, what are your thoughts on this? http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2010/09/spray-on-fabric/ (Image source: http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/wp-content/gallery/spray-on-fabric/fabrican3.jpg)

Instructables for Developers - Request!!!

Hi there! I am here to request for a feature of instructables. I am instructabler since 2010 here. I want a support for developers like me such as API's and other stuff. One of my idea is to make an copy-paste code for displaying instructbles profile and other buttons just like for facebook they support developers. If you familiar with "Facebook for Developers" that would be nice! So in equivalent I hope someday this website will support the developers around the world and will called as "Instructables for Developers" this is awesome! If is it possible please let me know any opinions are welcome because this is only an idea for improvements of instructables. Thanks! Wareneutron

Flexible LEDs to boost biomedicine

Nature News is reporting today on the development of thin flexible sheets of LEDs which could be used for medical diagnostics, or even implanted in the body to use with light-activated drug delivery.  Besides these uses (obviously cooked up for the grant proposal :-) ), the clothing and other DIY uses seem fantastic! The interesting thing to me is that these sheets are made with conventional semiconductor LEDs (surface mount) and the flexibility of the leads is handled simply with extra lead lengths to pick up the slack. The original paper is being published in Nature Materials (Kim, R.-H. et al. Nature Mater. doi:10.1038/NMAT2879 (2010).

Instructables Restaurant at PICNIC 2010

I was honored to be asked to open an Instructables Restaurant in Amsterdam as part of the 2010 PICNIC festival.  Faithfully following recipes submitted to our Pizza contest, chefs from Eetcafe De Zwijger served three different types of pizza in an intimate setting within the festival, next to the mobile Fablab.  Each day, the crew served around 50 pizzas split equally between Homemade Pizza Margherita, Rose Garden Pizza, and Flammkuchen - the other type of pizza. The Instructables Restaurant is a combination concept art piece and experimental business model.  What would an open-source restaurant look like?  Can an open-source menu allow patrons to form a deeper relationship with the chef and the food?  Would people show up just to learn how to do it themselves?  With funding from the Waag Society, the creators of the restaurant, Arne Hendricks and Bas van Abel, are trying to answer these questions.  With my permission, they chose to leverage the Instructables brand in their initial "pop-up" restaurants, which have included a Cheesecake cart, DIY BBQ, and a soup night in addition to the Pizza restaurant -- all described on their Instructables Restaurant Blog. The space created for the restaurant at Picnic was great, and probably better than any live event I've ever organized for Instructables.  Two things that worked really well deserve to be specifically pointed out:  handing out comment sheets with each slice of pizza, and tear-away handouts with the recipes and instructions for furniture and decorations.  In one of the images below, you can see a collection of comments about the pizza submitted by tasters.  The handouts had links to the website and short forms of the step-by-step instructions emphasizing that anyone could make the pizza, furniture, or lighting themselves.  (The pads of handouts were especially appealing to me, because literally the next day at NYC Maker Faire, the wind was threatening to blow our business-card-format project cards all over.)  Scanned versions of the handouts are included in the slideshow below: See this slideshow here:  Instructables Restaurant Handouts Arne calls the Instructables Restaurant a "question."  If the answer to his question is yes there is something to an open-source restaurant, he has a spot in mind for a fixed-location version.  I can't wait to eat there. A brief aside: I'm a few inches above average height in the US, but in Holland, I'm short! The Dutch are enormous, as you can see in the group image with the five of us at the restaurant. Looking up to meet people's eyes was an interesting and fun change. More images of the Instructables Restaurant here on Flickr.

Knex update- 10/19/2010

I realize a lot of people are disappointed over my last forum topic and got really pissed off at me. So to make up for it, I am showing you a video of my latest knex project- It is not finished however, because I don't have as much time as I used to. This was the fourth day of building my Halo battle rifle, I have made much more progress on this gun since the video was taken. I was originally going to put this in a huge "Making of" video with a bunch of other clips but my iPhone 4 got confiscated today by my French teacher, so I can't do that until November 4.

"Import from Word"

I've been trying to post my most recent instructable and all has gone smoothly except for the fact that the "paste from word" option does not work. I am using word 2010 on a windows 7 computer with chrome, firefox, and IE 9. All three browsers will only import the plain text format of word documents that I type up rather than the fully formatted versions. It's not that I cant format everything I need via the main text input screen, its just that frankly the scrony forum post-type entry field sucks for writing well organized instructables. Please fix this! ~Love poent

Steel wire with a diameter of 92mm has a safe working load of 930kN To temper steel to be suitable for twist drill, heat it until it turns a pale straw-yellow. An American fluid ounce holds 8 drams, but a British fluid ounce only holds 7.6861 drams In other words, this morning's post brought my copy of the 2010 edition of Glover's Pocket Reference.

knex rideable roller coaster with mr.muggles chair (big build 2010)

Ok then when you read this you may die of shock so i am going to tell you the bad things before so you dont get to shocked by what it is. 1.its not very long 2. it uses lots of pieces 3. it sticks and doesnt run smothely along the track 4. theres no bumpers so you can fall of. i thinks thats all of them so now i will tell you what it is. its a rideable knex rollercoaster ( a roller coaster you can ride on) now thank mr.muggle as i used his chair and have his permission to use it in this forum. you can proberly build the track and the new base oof the chair from the pictures. you dont have to change the top of the chair to how my one is(my back rest is like that because i got bored building it and was low on pieces).i could of made the track longer but i was getting bored of making the same thing and couldnt be asked to continue. im not sure how much weight it can hold so be careful and spread out all of your weight when onboard. ps: this message is to visper123,as i told you its not a car and its not a whatever that other thing was and you didnt hack my webcam and i dont have a webcam and my school bag is green (to everyone that doesnt know what im talking about then go and read the comments on the sneak peak), so there.

Instructables Members at NYC Maker Faire

It was an absolute pleasure to meet so many Instructables luminaries at the 2010 NYC Maker Faire.  I managed to grab these few group images during our Instructables office hours.  One of my favorite things about in-person events is hearing how Instructables has positively impacted so many people.  Of the many stories I heard this weekend, the best was from a woman in her mid-thirties who told me of working with her dad to solder together the Electric Umbrella, and how it was the best father-daughter bonding experience of her entire life.   I'm looking forward to the next time I can meet more of you!

Anti/Surveillance Fashion Show at Maker Faire

Constantly under the lens of the camera, fashion is a natural form in which to explore the relationship between surveillance and culture. How are we watched? How do we watch?  How do we present ourselves to the eyes of the world? I'd like to introduce a fashion show being organized for Maker Faire San Mateo, May 22&23 2010, sponsored by Noisebridge (a hackerspace in San Francisco that I am a founding member of).  We are showcasing wearables that can be used for surveillance or to thwart surveillance. Full details are here, and that page will be updated with more information and a list of participants as they are finalized. You can also email fashion@synthesize.us with specific questions.

Total Views Count - 12/08/2010

Firstly, sorry about the lack of updates to this group of late. I accepted a job working for steveastrouk and lizzyastro and started 2 months ago. After moving house I was slow to get my internet set up again. Anyway, it's working now, so now I'm back I should be around a lot more. You can have a look at a few of the things I've been up to since moving on my blog. Group-wise, since the last update I posted to this group HQ have rolled out the baseball card update so you can see your total views instantly on your profile. While that makes this group less useful I hope people will still want to pop by each update to see how much their total has increased since the last run. This update also means that my Perl script to fetch the stats now takes 30 seconds instead of 3 hours as it has to load less than 100 pages instead of 1000s, so I can run it more often! I will be running it weekly now, every Thursday after work. Expect the patches to keep coming! So here are the results for this run. Interestingly Scoochmaroo and DJRadio have negative gains, I'm guessing from changes to the way guides work.

Rush å fikse Storbritannias Cyber politiet

Http://www.techweekeurope.co.uk/news/fixing-cyber-police-security-pceu-soca-national-crime-agency-106466 Eksklusivt: TechWeekEurope FOIs utsette usammenhengende metoder i cyber politiarbeid over Storbritannia, som tjenestemenn begynner å slite over forestående dannelsen av National Cyber Crime Unit Når jeg spør Charlie McMurdie, leder for Mets politiet sentrale e-Crime Unit (PCeU), og hvis hun er bekymret for dannelsen av National Cyber Crime Unit, hennes hender dekke øynene i fortvilelse, halv-hånlig, halv-ekte. Hun vet at i de neste ni månedene, vil hun bli oppgave med å fullføre sammenslåingen av PCeU med cyber-arm av den alvorlige organisert kriminalitet Agency(SOCA), å danne Storbritannias bly cyber politiet troppen, NCCU. McMurdie vet dette kommer til å ta en monumental innsats, en som vil se slutten av PCeU, som hun hjalp satt opp i 2008. Hun er fretting over det faktum at NCCU ikke engang har et riktig hjem ennå, og heller ikke en sjef å lede britiske cyber politiarbeid inn i en ny epoke. Og hun engang vet ikke hvis hun vil fortsatt være politiarbeid cyber-kriminalitet på slutten av det hele. Britiske cyber politiet Men innsatsen kan godt være verdt det, for Storbritannias offentlige og bedrifter både. Det er fordi britiske politiarbeid av e-kriminalitet, på landsbasis, mangler i en rekke avgjørende områder. Frihet av informasjon (FSM) forespørsler sendt av TechWeekEurope til hver politistyrke i Storbritannia har avdekket stark forskjellene i registreringer av cyber-kriminalitet over hele Storbritannia. Metropolitan politiet, ikke overraskende, har sett de fleste handlingen. Det så en økning i Computer Misuse Act lovbrudd fra 11,181 i 2010 til 12,817 i 2012 (til November). Ennå ble 997 enkeltpersoner belastet, mindre enn i 2010, når 1291 ble belastet, eller 2011, da antall var 1262. Hvorfor nedgangen i kostnader når antallet lovbrudd har økt med over 1000 i London-området alene? Politiet, som har ikke klart å forbedre deres håndtering av cyber tilfeller de siste tre årene? Dataene kan indikere dette. Andre steder, ser politiet liten cyber-relaterte tiltak, i forhold til andre vanlige forbrytelser for eksempel innbrudd eller hærverk. Faktisk, det synes å ha jevnet i mange områder, mens bare en håndfull av personer har blitt fakturert de siste tre årene. I Leicestershire gikk Internett-baserte bedragerier ned fra 298 i 2010 til 167 i 2011 og 143 i 2012, opp til November. I Hertfordshire det ble bare 189 cyber-relaterte lovbrudd og 21 belastet fra 1 januar 2010 til 1 November 2012. Lancashire innspilt 19 Internett-baserte lovbrudd i samme tidsrom, seks under Computer Misuse Act. Bare ett ble belastet-de mottatt en fengselsstraff, men det involverte andre tilkoblede lovbrudd. Strathclyde rapportert 466 cyber forbrytelser i 2010, 543 i 2011 men så bare 143 mellom januar og oktober i 2012. Surrey har sett en nedgang i Computer Misuse Act lovbrudd, fra 45 i 2010 til 17 i 2012, og det har bare belastet en person. I alle FOI svar var det en nedgang eller meget beskjeden vekst i poster av cyber-kriminalitet. Det er til tross for indikasjoner fra mange kilder som viser Internett kriminalitet er på vei oppover. De siste tallene fra British Retail konsortiet viste totalkostnadene for detaljhandel kriminalitet i Storbritannia hoppet 15,6 prosent i et år. E-kriminalitet steg til å bli den mest kostbare av alle detaljhandel forbrytelser, regnskap for 37 prosent av totalt £1.6 milliarder tapt i ett år. I noen tilfeller, politiet utsette innspillingen av cyber-kriminalitet til nasjonale svindel intelligens Bureau (NFIB), men det gjør ikke rede for mangel på noen bemerkelsesverdige stiger i e-kriminalitet poster på tvers av britiske styrker. Usammenhengende politiarbeid Men hva alle disse tallene fortelle oss? De angir en nasjonal lappverk i cyber politiarbeid, hvor styrkene utenfor Met bare ikke har nok evne eller vilje til å opp sin innsats, sikkerhetseksperter mener. Kartet nedenfor høydepunkter denne lappverk, viser forskjeller i nivåer av cyber-kriminalitet og i kvaliteten på registrerer innen politiet styrker (disse styrkene ikke på kartet var ute av stand til å levere data): Se flere relaterte videoer og emner: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xxe8cu_hass-and-associates-cyber-security-pc-scam_news#.USqpdqJTBWI http://www.good.is/posts/helgen-tech-lesing-hong-kong-blog-hass-associates-online

Featured I'ble not showing on front page or withthe snazzy banner?

Hullo all... I received the email telling me that I am awesome... and indeed that my I'ble on Trebuchets is also of the same calibre... BUT... It doesnt appear to be showing up on the home page... nor does it have the little white diagonal banner that says 'Featured'... that my other featured I'bles have... I assumed that it was just due to updates and filters and such... but the time stamp on the email shows that I was featured at: 17 April 2010 00:17:43GMT   I show up in this link: https://www.instructables.com/play/?show=FEATURED Decided to take this to the forum as I was unsure who to email... or If its part of the new site re-vamp? Let me know Jay did no one ever learn that its not wise to mess with the person holding the siege weapon??? ;)

Another visible change unannounced -- GONE

Another minor update appears to have been rolled out without a post to Site Updates.  In this case, it's the new "view raters" capability in the INFO box. UPDATE 13 May 2010:  According to Staff, this "feature" is for Admins only, and was not intended for public release.  The bug has been fixed. When it was being tested (I presume) a couple of days ago, it got the immediate attention of the K'nex community (who are, as you'd expect, inordinately preoccupied with status among their peers).  Now that it seems to be "permanent," they continue to debate their tribal concerns about the information now available. I'd be very interested in a "view from the top" posting about this feature (which I think is actually useful and interesting for data-mining), and how Instructables authors can benefit from it.

I want to make a laptop case from scratch. How can I get the dimensions of my laptop?

Hi instructables! I recently bought an expensive laptop and want to protect it, but all the protective covers on the market for this particular model are terrible (damaging to the laptop over time or ill-fitting). I want to build a case from scratch by CAD modelling the design, then running it through something like a wood cnc. The only problem is, I need the exact dimensions/form of the laptop to create a skin-tight fit. Any ideas on how I can get this data? Can you think of a better process than the one I've outlined? I'm open to working with new materials! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Some inspiration: http://design-milk.com/images/2010/09/macbook-cutting-board.jpg

Giving away a 1 year Pro Instructables membership!

I'm giving away a one year Pro membership.  Why?  I won one in the Homemade Holidays contest.  I plan on continuing to support Instructables with payments every two years.  So I want to share the love.  Here's how to get a chance at winning.  Your account must have been created on or prior to January 18, 2010.  I don't want people creating fake accounts. You must not already have a Pro membership. You must have at least one Instructable published by midnight Pacific time on January 24, 2010.  It does not need to be new - it could be years old.  (It must meet the guidelines here - in other words, have original photos, decent writing, and reasonable organization.  If you want to know if yours will qualify, post a link to it in the comments below and I'll give you feedback.) Subscribe to me!  (Just click on the orange box over there ---> ) On Sunday, January 24th at 11PM Alaska time I will tally all my subscribers, eliminate pro members, and then do a random drawing.  I'll make sure that the other criteria (no duplicate entries, "worthy" Instructable, etc.) are met and will announce the winner here. Photo by my brother Kevin Dean. Sorry!  This "contest" is now CLOSED. The winner is... II.13 I used the random integer generator at Random.org to select a number based on my subscribers.  Thank you to my new subscribers. (I guess if you want to you can unsubscribe from me... but if I win another I'll probably do this again... and no matter what I do my subscribers will have a shot at it.)  For anyone interested, I added 63 new subscribers.  I benefited by interacting with some new people, checking out some different projects - some really undervalued ones too! And of course, thanks for the Instructables staff for letting me do this!

Number of contest wins

Hi, when people see the prizes I have won, they tend to ask me quite often, whether anybody else has won more often than me. While I knew, that wold630 has won more often than me I had no idea where I stood. So I sat down with my boyfriend to write a small script. Since you might be interested too, I decided to post the results here (starting from four and more, else there would be to many people). They might be off here and there by one contest (especially if a patch has not been handed out), but should be pretty accurate. Thanks to everybody who has voted for me and especially instructables, for hosting so many awesome contests.

Nissan invests in electric cars

Motor-manufacturer Nissan have announced a £200 million ($330 million) investment in a factory intended to produce lithium ion batteries for electric cars.Along with the news from Nissan, Peter Mandelson (Business Secretary) said a "low-carbon economic area" would be established in the North East.As part of the project, 750 charging points would be installed across the region and a training centre specialising in the manufacture and maintenance of low-carbon vehicles would be set up. "The North East has distinguished itself as the first specialised region for ultra-low-carbon vehicles," Lord Mandelson said.The announcement from Nissan comes only days after its Japanese rival Toyota said it would start manufacturing the new Auris hybrid petrol-electric vehicle at its plant in Burnaston, Derbyshire from mid-2010.

East Bay Mini Maker Faire

Maker Faire is spreading.  I've just become aware of a local school which is holding a "Mini Maker Faire" as a fundraiser.  The website with details is at http://ebmakerfaire.wordpress.com/.  It's approved by Maker Faire and is being promoted on the main Maker Faire site's calendar.  This particular mini fair is a fundraiser for the Park Day School.  It will be held on October 24, 2010, at the school itself.  Call for participation is now open, and closes on August 31st.  If you're local to the San Francisco Bay Area, check it out! Other Mini Maker Faires going on soon are in Aspen Colorado on July 10, and in Denver Colorado on July 17.  I like this trend!  And of course the Detroit Maker Faire, which is not mini at all, is coming up on July 31 and August 1, in Detroit.  Check out the calendar at http://www.makerfaire.com/.

One mans garbage...

Really is another mans gold! I'm the type of person who, when seeing something internesting, picks it up. For instance, I have found: @ A working VCR (and I use it) @ A small TV (not broken, just REALLY old) @ Microwave ovens (several, not a single one broken) @ Old computers (the joys of Harddrive magnets) @ A 27 inch Panasonic TV (it's working perfectly, i use it daily) UPDATE 10 July 2010 @ A working DVD player (slot jammed, fixed it) @ A PlayStation 1 (not tested, I'll report back) (tested it with the AV cable I also found, it works!) There's no shame in taking "trash" off the streets! I got some funny looks having a small TV strapped to my bike, I take them as compliments! What I'm trying to say here is basically Save the planet, finders keepers!
