An advanced version of GMAIL

In a report of a recent 4 hour outage of gmail in Europe, it was mentioned that there were some users who by paying $50.00/year were using an advanced version of Gmail. I already pay Google to do searches on a great number of documents, but can find no information on how to pay for and receive an advanced version of Gmail. Can any one help me find it?

Should we have "Advanced Searching" on Instructables?

I'm posting this topic to bring forth the idea of having advanced search capabilities on Instuctables. If anyone has visited a member who has amassed a huge number of instructables, you'll notice that using the "next" button is rather inefficient for searching. If you don't know what I mean, go to Kitemans page and search for the first instructable he wrote.  There are also times where you are looking for a specific instructable written by a member and would therefore need a method to do so, especially when some members have written over 100 instructables. There may be a specific forum topic, group, guide, or question/answer that you're looking for, and again, you'd need a way to search these only. I'm sure I'm missing a few examples, so feel free to throw in your 2 cents regarding advanced searching on Instructables, and maybe the staff might implement it for us.  Thanks, canucksgirl

23 stage no-capacitor full auto coilgun

  *********I have updated my design since posting this topic. The video is the more current design than what is written below.**********    I came to the conclusion that using capacitors to provide the power for a coil gun is a stupid idea. A bold statement I know. The reason is that they are big and heavy, take time to charge, and need charging circuits. Also, the sharp rise in current that comes from capacitors is bad unless you are making an induction style coilgun, because the induced currents will hurt efficiency.    If coil guns are ever going to be a practical hand held weapon it will need to be lighter, simpler / less delicate, and more powerful than what you will find on the internet if you look up coil guns. A rate of fire that is competitive with conventional guns will also be needed if a coil gun will be used for anything other than target shooting or maybe hobby hunting. So I designed a coilgun to meet these requirements. Visit my website for a full explanation of the design: http://www.ourbadscience.com/#!em-guns/cwjy     I realized that a coilgun would not be a practical infantry weapon until batteries are more advanced anyway, so that just adds to the list of why capacitors are out. It will be powered directly off of the batteries, and have many coil stages. This allows a very high rate of fire. To get that rate of fire with capacitors you would need several capacitor banks charging at offset times, so after each bank fires another is just finished charging. That would be terribly bulky.    The lower voltage from the batteries will give comparatively slow current rise in the coils which normally would make the coil timing weird. I plan to use an unconventional coil timing though. All the coils will be activated at once, and the coils behind the projectile will be shut off as it passes them. This will have several advantages: -The coils will only be powering up for a split second at the beginning. Most coils will already be at full power when the projectile gets to them (that is not the case in most coil guns). -Induced current will not be any issue. -Since the coils will all act as one coil, the projectile will be drawn toward the center of all the coils that are on. Timing of the shut off of the coils will not need to be perfect.    This will be a pre-tuned passively timed system. I want to use a small adjustable electronic timer for the switch-off timing. This will require some work in the initial adjustment of the timing, but even actively switched coil guns (with optical sensors or something) require that. the advantage of a passive system over an active system is cost and simplicity, and you can pack the coils tighter on the barrel if you are not putting a sensor between each stage. That matters with 23 stages! As I said check out my website to see more details and pictures for this and other projects: http://www.ourbadscience.com/#!em-guns/cwjy

GBA owns the DS!

Hello? What happened? The PSP and DSi are all well and good but in my mind GBA games own them all! Sure, most are 2D and they cannot compete graphically with it's bigger cousins, but I would own my Gameboy Micro over a DS anyday (and I can say this genuinley because I had enough money to buy either a DS lite or a Gameboy micro and I chose the micro). I say this because compare a Sonic advance game to a Sonic Rush game. From a neutral perspective I found Sonic advance much more enjoyable than the DS version: It is simple (only 1 screen to focus on!) and none of these faffy side missions. And I would rather play SMB advance 3 than play some downgraded NFS for PSP. And let's not forget the biggest advantage of the GBM: PORTABILITY! It is the only true pcket console.

Apologies in Advance

I've mentioned it before, but now is almost the time: I'm going to CERN on Monday, for most of the week. It's actually a professional development session (I'm supposed to be getting inspired to produce inspiring teaching materials), so it's not a jolly, honest. Anyhoo, bizarrely, in the birthplace of the internet*, wifi internet access is apparently quite unreliable there, so I may not be around as much as you are used to. I'll be spending the time in a days-long nerdgasm instead. (*it involved physicists being too lazy to cycle between work stations)

Further Advances in Invisibility

As those of you who have been fervently following my posts for over a year know, last summer I was working on making myself invisible. While my the results of my experiment were lackluster, it appear that a man in China has nearly perfected the technique. He says his quest towards invisibility started in 2005 as a protest of the Chinese government who had shut down his art studio. You can see some of the results of his research here.

Advanced Search

If this already exists and I just can't find it, please inform.  Otherwise please, please provide an advanced search feature.  What apparently exists is far too primitive for a site as diverse and and at the same time special interest as Instructables. For starters I suggest the following simple and easily remembered scheme:  - single word search terms  - conjunction of terms using + to create multi-word atomic search terms  - logical connections of terms and groupings using &, | and ~  - grouping with ()  - arbitrary prefix, suffix and infix using * as the last, first or both  - escape of these search characters using \ For example (using " " for expository purposes only):   raspberry+pi -- matches the two consecutive terms "raspberry pi"   raspberry+(pi | pie) -- matches either "raspberry pi" or "raspberry pie"   (raspberry+pi) & nas -- matches if the terms "raspberry pi" and "nas" appear anywhere   (raspberry+pi) & (nas | server) -- you guess   *dog -- matches words with "dog" as the last three characters   dog* -- matches words with "dog" as the first three characters   *dog* -- matches words with the three characters "dog" anywhere in them A way, unspecified yet, to apply the query to title, summary or body of the project and some combination thereof. Further suggestions invited.  This would make the site so much more useful for finding solutions.  Implementation of the suggested scheme would occupy a good coder for about half a day.  Great project for an intern.  :-) As an advanced advanced search the use of full regular expressions would be incredible and there exist numerous public domain regex implementations (not sure about Javascript) that could be easily incorporated (wrote a complete one myself in C 30 years ago and it was surprisingly compact.)

Any suggestions for colleges to help me advance a career in film/editing?

This is more about my decisions later down the road in life than it is my current interest in editing and filming.  I've been doing some research in colleges that will help me get a major in film and video production and I've narrowed my choices to a few.  I'm not going to list them here, since I want some community input on this and I don't want the response to be biased based on my list.  What colleges do you think will give me the best, most hands-on, most fun education in this subject, as well as be the best for when it comes to getting a job in the industry?  I can do as much research on this as I need to, but what I think matters to me the most at this point is other people's opinions.  I'm more likely to try or consider something if friends recommend it, and you guys are always a thoughtful community.  Thanks in advance!
