Anything new?

Has there been any new concepts or awesome guns made in the last year? I've been out for awhile but I'm thinking about making concept guns again to spark things up. But if its pretty much dead here then what's the point? If you guys can list some guns that have made even the littlest impact on the community then that would be great.

Anything but Knex...

I understand that knex are kinda cool and they have their place here on instructables. But to me it's getting kind of ridiculous. Just trying to browse through the instructables and find a useful one is pretty difficult now. I find a few useful ones here and there but in between them all are knex instructables. I think it's rather irritating to have to scroll past hundreds of instructables all for a different way to make a knex gun. Is there any way to browse with everything but the knex instructables? To be fair.. yes i'm exaggerating it's probably more like a 50/50 knex/non-knex ratio.

is there anything duct tape won't stick to? Answered

I'm planning to make a satchel bag out of duct tape and i've pretty much figured out the mechanics on how to make it. however, for my initial plan to work out, i'm gonna need a sheet of SOMETHING that duct tape doesn't stick to, or at least, doesn't stick to as well. i'm planning to lay on the strips of duct tape on THAT and then move on from there. so, any ideas? wax paper (like the yellow stuff used as backing for stickers)? paper rubbed with oil? a certain type of cloth?

Convenient djvu to anything readable conversion?

This is a problem I've been trying to solve for the last few weeks. I've finally been given a kindle (New Year presents), and it is great not to have to carry three or four books to school every day - usually it was the thing we read in Literature, some novel I read on my way in the underground, some Physics I have to read and understand and some Physics to help me understanding the first lot. It's been doing a great job, except for  not liking in the cold and getting a bit mad outside, but most of the Physics books I have and can find are in djvu for some reason known only to people who made books on Physics and Maths, so they can't be read on it directly. Is there any way to convert the books to something readable, and better not pdf, because it shows really slow and small and moving around the page is very unnerving especially early in the morning... I'd also love to save the pictures. Any ideas?

have i done anything wrong?

Today with my friend, i made a saturated solution of hydrogen sulfide by boiling aqeous hydrogen sulfide solution made by reacting hydrochloric acid with calcium sulfide. then what we did was we mixed the solution with ammonium hydroxide with hopes that as simply logic would predict, that we would get ammonium sulfide. now, the end result was nothing like ammonium sulfide, and was actually almost completely scentless, aside from the strong odor of exess ammonia, though we have not yet removed any of the mixed solution from its sealed container yet. i would like to ask, did we make ammonium sulfide suitable for use in a stink bomb? and if not, what did we do wrong? in multiple previous questions i have asked if hydrogen sulfide and ammonium hydroxide will mak ammonium sulfide, however, in all questions lemonie and others change the subject and spam the questions with warnings about the dangers of hydrogen sulfide, but refuse to actually answer the question, and so have forced me to go trial and error in the practical rather than the theoretical first. we do not plan on re-attempting the experiment until we know exactly what our outcome will be, which is , if we either mix a solution of hydrogen sulfide and ammonium hydroxide, or bubble hydrogen sulfide gas through ammonium hydroxide solution, will we get ammonium sulfide! also whoever best answers the question will recieve a best answer, also if you know any other ways to make ammonium sulfide, please do tell
