Shameless self promotion

I'm not sure why I waited so long to post about this but something pretty cool happened to me because of my last contest entry. I entered mySolar Thermally Pumped Hydroponic System in the "keep the bottle" contest. For some reason I didn't win ;-), however, shortly after the contest I received a PM. The PM was from the Harvard Graduate School of Design, they were putting on a conference on Ecological Urbanism and they wanted my project to go on display for six weeks. I, of course, was honored and after negotiating an enormous fee (j/k) I shipped the project up to them.Recently while looking for some more info on the subject I stumbled across their Flickr Pool and two photos of my project. I have to say, it's almost fantastic that a project, composed primarily of empty soda bottles could go from my backyard to the halls of Harvard.And, obviously, this would never have happened if Instructables didn't exist, so my heartfelt appreciation to Eric and the fine people behind the scenes of the website. So without further ado, the pictures.

I didn't realize I was supposed to receive them until after I complained about it in the chatroom. I get emails for new comments and PMs just fine, but answers to the Questions I've posted are not emailed to me. I just went to check my most recent one to see if it had even gotten onto the list, and I had 12 answers that I didn't know about!

Mass Produced Ideas

My CNC machine is almost done and a vacuum form machine should be really easy to make (1 or 2 days). I've always wanted to mass produce something, so does anybody have any ideas for a cool electronics device that they would want to buy? I'm going to make everything surface mounted. If anybody has any really good ideas then PM or post here, maybe we can even reach a percentage agreement.

Comment going down the memory hole....

As has been reported by other users, I occasionally end up posting "invisible" comments, either at the top level, or as replies to someone else.  These comments are visible to me when I view the forum topic, Question, or Instructable (and the comment count includes them in that view!).  However, the forum browsing page doesn't show them (neither as "last post" nor in the count), and they are not visible to any other users. My most recent example is in BIGHAIRYDUDE's bug report. I posted one comment at 4:18 pm (CAGESVXGGMMFD6M), and another at 5:08 pm (CTRYNTKGGMMFDBI). Those strings are the commentId values, which I can see on the page when I do "view source"! I constructed the URLs by hand. If I use those links in another session where I'm not logged in, they don't work. But if I log in there (on Safari, so there's no chance of cookie or cache confusion), then my comments appear! This behaviour is unpredictable. It seems to happen once or twice a week. When it does, the particular forum topic or whatever is affected permanently (i.e., any comment I try to post is invisible), but other topics are not affected at all. I know that's going to make it hard to isolate and fix, but I'm hoping that the IDs might be of some help...

Instructables not showing up

Last night (May 23, 2012) between 9:00 PM and 11:45 PM Eastern time i posted 2 new instructables. One of which has been featured. Problem is they are not showing up on the technology page or the Electronics sub page. There have been several instructables posted today that are showing up on the page. They have even been accepted into a challenge or 2. I also posted an instructable back on May 15 2012 and it is missing as well. Since this one has been missing for so long i sent an email to service@instructables.com asking about the issue. The email was sent 2 or 3 days ago and i haven't heard back (other then the auto reply that is sent). All 3 show up on my profile and show up on the Challenge and contest pages they have been entered in. They just don't show up in the Technology page like then should or the sub category they should be listed under. What do i need to do to get this fixed? Here are links to the instructables affected.

Need help/ideas for a (seemingly) simple USB, time controlled locking mechanism

Hello. I need help. A lot. But seriously, I need to fabricate a way to activate a door lock, via USB (this would seemingly be the easiest way, since a computer keeps accurate time), only during a preprogrammed time period. For example, I would program the lock to activate at 11:00 pm and retract (I'm assuming deadbolt here) at 5:00 am. Would something like this be possible? Thanks in advance.

EXTREME typo

Hi folks! No big deal, just reporting a minor typo: On https://www.instructables.com/contest/extreme/, there is an "R" missing (as of 7:45 PM PST, 2-28-12): "Make sure to tell us in your into step why your project is EXTREME!" So maybe you should look around on the floor by where you typed the description, because that's probably where it fell off of the screen. Hopefully nobody mopped the floor or vacuumed or anything, because it sucks to have to fish through dirty mop water or nasty vac-dust to find such a tiny letter. Cheers! Mike
