I won a laptop!

I entered a Sony video contest and now I've won a Vaio laptop. It'll be a little while before it arrives, but when it does it will be the first laptop I've ever owned. I have one for work, but pretty much all of my machines have been PC boxes that I've built myself.I guess this means that I'll finally see what Windows Vista is, or isn't, about.contest page

I won!

I posted this topic before, but I don't think anybody saw it (instructables glitch?)From wendsday to saterday i went to a resort named 7 springs in champion, Pennsylvania. I was there for a national competition called technology student association (aka TSA). This competition was states, for I already went to regionals.I won 1st place in Electrical Applications, which is basically your knowledge of electronics (you take a test) and you have to create a circuit on a bread board, along with creating a schematic. I tell you, this was almost a joke. Questions on the test are like --| C---- what is that a symbol of? And what does IC stand for?The breadboard challenge was even easier. They gave you a breadboard, a 9 volt battery, a lightbulb, and some wires. The challenge was to make a circuit (and schematic) that light up the lightbulb whenever you touch the probes to the right spots. Like you know those question and answer things at science fairs where if you line up the right question with the right answer? That's basically it.I also won 1st place along with a couple of my friends for a medical challenge where we gave a presentation on alzheimer's disease. Not much to explainMe and my friends also won 3rd in another thing, I can't remember (I get my trophy on wensday because they didn't have enough trophies for the whol group). I think it was in agriculture and biotech where we talked about biofuels.Me and my friend got 6th in a challenge where they give you a random technology topic and they give you 10 minutes to prepare (no computers) and then you have to give a speach.Me and my friends got 10th in a thing called tech bowl where they give your random questions and you are in direct competition wire people nexy to you (you have a buzzer).Me and my friends got 9th place in a challenge where we talked about the enviroment (specificaly ozone depletion);)does anybody know where this came from, I'm pretty sure I saw it at TSA (I just remember a yellow wrapped transformer at an angle in a box with a phone and it's all in a box)http://blog.makezine.com/archive/2008/04/send_an_sms_to_save_your.html#comments.

I'ble won't publish.

I'm not trying to complain or make an issue, just thought I'd put it out there.  I am having issues posting my latest I'ble. Everything's fine up until I hit the "Publish" button. Nothing happens, no error, my browser doesn't attempt to do anything.  I'm working from a Desktop. I tried clearing my cache, cookies, history, etc. I also tried on Chrome and FireFox.  I know you guys will get this squared away soon.  - Adam

Ipod Issue

Okay, I am having some weird issues with my Ipod Issue number one: My Ipod won't sync correcting. My plugged it into a different computer with Itunes installed, but it won't sync to it, even though it says, syncing or w/e. Why is this happening? (I put this in the forums because all my answers I submitted days ago still isn't on the list, so I figured this would be better)

NOOB homebrew on psp slim

Hey guys(and maybe girls), i just hacked my brothers psp slim. Now i am used to the phat pap where you install the 1.50 subset to get homebrew to work, but that said only for fat psp. Only some homebrew works on the slim psp, but has major issues. for instance psp revolution has no sound anywhere, and none of the bottom buttons work. I have tried both the 5.00 and 1.50 kernels in the recovery menu. Is there some patch, or homebrew launcher that i dont know about?? should i install the 1.50 kernel addon anyway? firmware is 5.00 M33-6

Hello! My pro membership is about to expire, and I looked at my account because I've earned a couple of free memberships, and I wanted to activate them. I see one I got for having a featured instructable or something (3 mos) but I'm pretty sure I won a free 1 yr membership when I won a contest this summer, but I don't see anything in my account about that. Please help? Thanks!

PSP Fix, Need Help

Hello all! I recently aquired a broken PSP 1000 as sort of a challenge to myself. Now however, I actually want it to work. I need some help with the fix, so here are the problems I have been able to identify: -PSP won't always charge, I strongly believe it is the battery though. When I tilt the PSP around at different angles, it will charge. Also, fiddling with the battery makes it charge. -PSP won't tun on. I have checked the power fuse, and it was burned out. I placed a jumper across it like so many internet guides say, and it now has continuity. When I hold the power switch, the PSP will do one of two things:                                  1. The light will turn off, and then turn back to solid orange (charging)                                  2. The light will turn green for about 0.5 to 1 second, and then turn off -PSP will make a rythmic clicking when not charging, doesn't seem to be a problem though. -Battery is cracked, and I don't know if it works properly because it won't maintain proper contact with the PSP. I have also checked the backlight and USB fuses, they both have continuity  so I'm not worried about fixing them. Right now I would just like it to turn on. If anyone knows anything, please make a comment, perhaps someone else has this problem. P.S.  What is a pandora battery? I keep hearing about those, what do they do? Also, what exactly signifies a "bricked" PSP? Thanks UPDATE: 11/08/2009 I had a friend test the battery, he said the battery works and he charged it for me.  Now the PSP turns on. But, (there's always a but) there is no activity on the LCD. I tried bridging the backlight fuse with tweezers to see if the fuse was the problem, no luck. So what now? All I have learned is that the charge circuit doesn't work and that the PSP turns on with no activity. I held a white LED flashlight up to the screen, but I didn't see anything. any suggestions?

Placing a "WINNER" Mark on instructables that won a challenge or contest

Don't you find it a good idea to easily identify instructables that were able to win a contest or challenge? Maybe a good idea is to place a "WINNER" Mark on these instructables. The idea is similar to those featured instructables that is marked as "FEATURED"

Dancing a jig....because I just won a prize from ALLIED Electronis (totally unexpectedly)

At Allied Electronics Corp, on Face Book, they run a contest where they ask for each participant to read their ad, and post something the tool does.  If you get picked, you win the tool offered as prize.  Here is my facebook notification: "The winner of our Grab Your Gadgets contest.... Mike Keller! He's won a Remote-Display Clamp Meter from Fluke." I am flabbergasted ! :-) Here is the original tag line in FB:   Grab Your Gadgets ends at midnight!  Enter to win a Fluke Clamp Meter!
