Ok guys, I am back (after 2 days)! The reason was because someone hacked and deleted my account so I have to start afresh. Any ideas for me to post?

Old Monster Fly Back transformer! I have one old school fly back transformer, This thing is three times the size of a normal fly back. I think it is worth about 3 fly backs, because I really don't think I can find another this size the cost should be $30 If you don't think its worth the cost, I'll just junk it and use it on one of my other projects, you just can't find too many old CRT transformers any more, just newer smaller ones. you can leave me a comment or send me an email. the fly back is a little dusty.

Is there a reason that when I: Load the homepage Scroll down to the "featured/popular/recent" area Click on an instructable Read instructable (or not) Click BACK button The home page loads in my browser again at the "featured/popular/recent" area for a moment and then jumps back to the top of the page where the slideshow of the featured authors is at? Every other website, that I can think of, returns to the same portion of the page I was at when I click the BACK button. Now, I'm sure you guys are proud of your new, shiny, homepage. But...

In the past month I've been scratching my itch to travel. I've been hiking in Japan, exploring Morocco, and relaxing in Parisian cafes and museums. So if you didn't see me around these parts it's because I wasn't around these parts. No new trips coming up, but getting outside of the US is always fun and I hope to do it again soon. But now I'm back! I'm looking forward to digging through what's been going on here in the past couple weeks and finding new things to make or do.

~~Hey I'm new to instructables, i haven't posted anything yet. Let me take this chance to to say something about myself~~ So corruptedppl left. Which means that I am back lets hope the same thing won't happen with all the bugs and errors and logging issues like when chicken2209 left I'm back baby! did you miss me?

I'm looking at a lot of 'ibles every day, and when i want to go back at the search page it takes a long time, I'm not pointing out a bug or anything, I think there should be a "Back To Search" Button somewhere that could get you back to the search page you where I.e. Search; LED page 255, instead of having to hit last page 20 times. Update: removed bad sentax.

As a few of you may know, I haven't been on for a few days (*caugh* over a week *caugh*) due to hardware troubles switching to linux. Being sick of windows tendency to slow down with age and the inability to make that better without a full re-install, I decided that linux mint was the way to go. Long story short, it seems that the standard hardware i've had for a few years didn't like mint or ubuntu much and refused to install correctly, so I did my homework and built my own system which turned out to be about half the price of comparable brand name systems, although I did manage to use the same case from my old system and skimped on hard drives and extra cards. My new hardware consists of an Asus M4A88T-M motherboard, an AMD Phenom 2 X6 1055T processor, 8gb of cheap ram, various hard drives and various dvd drives all stuffed into an old tower. The Ideanator is back, and this time minty fresh!

I was looking at Evil Mad Scientists website (following the link Patrik provided on (this)i'ble..) anyway back on topic: I noticed they had the bottom of the page was: "Trackback URL for this entry: http://www.evilmadscientist.com/trackback.php/usbkeyHere's what others have to say about 'How to make a Sawed-off USB Key':" Then with links of site that had linked too them. 'twas thinking it'd be pretty cool if it can be implemented into Instructables somewhere/somehow. =)

Hi guys! I am most ashamed. 2008 is practically over already, and I have come to the startling conclusion that, I didn't make anything this year!!! Instructables-wise at least. A whole year went by and I didn't publish a single instructable. School has been tough this year, tons of homework, projects and such.But don't worry! This year will be different! I vow to publish more instructables this year! It's been a year since I got here, and its about time I did my share! I promise you! New instructables! Better quality ones! More useful! Im baaack!Nothing can express my feeling more than this: Don't call it a comeback!I've been here for years!Rocking my peers,and putting suckers in fear!Making the tearsrain down like a monsoon,listen to the base goBOOM!'''UPDATE: I made a new ible: How to choose a good password: A few quick tips to staying safe*I'll fix the title later.It;s just a couple of tips on.....well...how to choose a good password.

I left because I was annoying people too much, and I got a PM from a mod telling me he 'expects better behaviour in future'. I kept meaning to get back to it, but I just got caught up in a lot of stuff which was happening. Its christmas day today, weird, because I'm currently in England. When I did get time to go on, I decided to play BF2:BC, TF2, Minecraft, HaloCE or Mercs2. Well thats pretty much it. I'm back.

Sometime early on Friday morning, I threw out my back (it must have dropped in amongst the trash in one of the cans or something); anyways, I am still mobile, but am suffering quite a bit. I can't sit in one place to long at the moment, but it IS better then it was yesterday. Just thought I would let you all know, in case I seem a little more absent, or cranky this 4 day weekend I have *sigh* One more Update, well, make that two:The picture is not me, it is off the web, and#2: things have not yet gotten ANY better.....looks like I am stuck this way until Tuesday when the Docs are back from their vacations....*sigh*

I know what your all thinking right now "oh no that freak is back". But then again why do I care what you guys think. But anyways just thought I would drop in and tell everybody why I haven't been on in like 3 months. 1.School......lots of work.2.Found about this cool company that sells these awesome sleds.(yes,sleds. Not your tube or steel runner sled,but your nice mad river rocket sled with awesome control and you can do some sweet tricks on them.Link at the end. And a video.)3.I grew out of k'nex and forgot there was so much more on this site!Thats it I think.links: http://www.madriverrocket.com/video:Note this is not me.

I was talking to FreakCitySF on aim awhile ago, and asked him:"Are you still active on instructables?",He replied:"Yeah, A little, I mostly browse..","I have a few more projects, but I don't know if I want to post there (Instructables)""A lot of sites pay now.."I got to thinking, What does this site have more of than any other DIY website on the internet have? What makes members stay active on the site? What makes them want more?COMMUNITYFRIENDSHIPBoth of which are gained through the similarities amongst ourselves.With that said, I would like to thank, the staff and community at instructables, for making this website, my favorite. If I could award something to Instructables, I would, in a heart beat, with no questions asked.While we are all different, we are all the same.and Chris, come back to instructables!

Hey there folks! Looking for some advise again. NH just went through the worst power outage in years (maybe history). 6 days without power has me thinking again. I have means of heat (wood stove) and means of cooking (propane) and lighting (candles and my LED projects), but the well pump is a problem. The need of water to flush the toilets came from the stream nearby, all well and good as it was, washing our bodies from buckets has to go. I have learned that my 220vac well pump actually draws it's power from 2 110 vac circuits. If I have this right (which is my first question, is this even possible) I only need a 110vac converter to run this off my batteries. Now, if I'm correct here (second question) a 4amp 220vac pump is 880 watts, then the draw from the 12vdc battery should be 74amps (give a few for losses maybe 80 amps). I only have 2 160AH deep cell batteries running currently. Am I looking at a reality of 2 hrs (half the draw) or 4 hrs use (full draw)? Or, is it even less.... Yup, that was a third question! I just bought a 2500 (5000 max) watt inverter intended for the shop and thought I would use this as my back-up for the winter. Am i even close here?

I have a couple of L11S6Y01 Lenovo Lithium Ion batteries 10.8V nominal, 48WH, 4400mAH batteries and a couple of their AC adapters lying around the house. I was looking up the Minty boost DIY battery back up and I was thinking of making this battery back up kit to recharge my iPhone and Samsung tablets, both of which can connect to USB power sources. My idea: 1) Get a 7 pin connector that will connect directly to my AC adapter. For example: http://www.ebay.com/itm/External-Laptop-Battery-Charger-for-Lenovo-IdeaPad-B570-G470-G570-Z570-L09L6Y02-/121091427052?pt=Laptop_Batteries&hash;=item1c319c8aec Maybe I can scavenge one such connector from this place: http://www.ebay.com/itm/IBM-X60S-Battery-Connector-/350772373819?pt=UK_Computing_Other_Computing_Networking&hash;=item51aba9a93b 2) Build a circuit similar to Minty boost : http://www.ladyada.net/make/mintyboost/icharge.html Except in this case, my source is a Li Ion rechargeable battery instead of 2 AA batteries. Any ideas and thoughts would be appreciated.

Hi guys, I would just like to ask for some tips/advice/suggestions on how to build a Delorean Time Machine (as featured in Back To The Future). I'm not talking about an actual scale model - decent ornament size will do, to be displayed on a shelf. It would be cool to include some fancy electronics inside of it. Perhaps a digital alarm clock?

I have four flyback transformers for sale, I have marked where the ground is for the HV on them. they are in a fine condition. I would like to get a few of them off the shelfs, they are taking up too much room. I want to get $20 for them and I will also ship them any where in the united states for free.

At this moment, I am awaiting for the doctor's office to open so I can give them another call. My back has been hurting me since the Friday before Labor Day weekend, and getting increasingly worse since. The insurance I have was only allowing for pain medication, and then finally approved an X-ray which, of course, did not show anything concerning my formerly herniated disks. I have been awaiting the insurance company's approval to get the MRI that will tell the doctor what is REALLY going on with my back. If this gets delayed until I am paralyzed, the insurance company will have to be held responsible, as it would be because of their delay. Since I am having difficulties even sitting here in front of the computer, I will keep this short. If I stop posting for a 24 hour period, you can assume I have gone to the hospital for an operation (which will not happen before they examine an MRI). I don't know what else to do......but at this point, the pain meds don't even work well enough to allow me to sleep. Just wanted to get an FYI out here, so you didn't worry if I do become unable to get to a computer for a few days or weeks. BTW: I will be going completely crazy without being able to get in here, you all are like my extended family. First update: MRI has been taken, but will hear nothing before Friday or perhaps *sigh* Monday. Second update: MRI showed a definitive bulge (herniation) pressing heavily against my spinal column. This time around, it will probably have to be removed and the bones fused to keep me going... UPDATE 2.491 - Supplemental Nothing will be accomplished during the weekend, as far as my back is concerned. At least we have found a reasonable combination of meds to keep the pain at bay until I get to see the Neurosurgeon (and hopefully, there will be no need to see the Oncologist). UPDATE 3 - : It is very early in the morning (5:16 am) and I can not sleep. I have to await the doctor's call hoping it will come before my pulmonary appointment ( C-pap refitting). And if not, hoping I can get a refill on the pain meds that have been just barely keeping the pain below the screaming all the time level. So I can tolerate the wait until I get to see the neurosurgeon. UPDATE 3.274 - supplemental: I will be out and about (different doc appts.) most of this morning and into the afternoon. I will check in as soon as I know something. UPDATE 4: I have an appointment to see the neurosurgeon's BUT it isn't for another 6 days or so. This is very aggravating that something this painful and this life-invasive (keeping me from work) can't be taken care of sooner. UPDATE 4.129 - Supplemental: A followup letter from the doctor informs me of another reason the pain is greater this time, then last time: I have two herniated discs. *sigh* The fun of aging just never ends, does it? UPDATE 5: The therapy IS helping relieve the pressure on the disc by supporting the spine through stronger muscles. I am getting relief finally, and should be back to work Nov. 6th, at the latest. UPDATE 6: I had a minor relapse on Oct. 30th, on the right hand side, but things seem to be back on track now again. Thank you all for your support ! Some information about what MAY be done next. Final link Below is an illustration...

In spite of everything happening in the past few weeks/days, I can't stay away for long....I just have to check in now and then to help when I can where I can; it is what makes me happiest. Rest doesn't seem to be much of an option of late, so if I can reduce stress at home, I may even be "work worthy" come Monday. I need to be here.....

I'm trying to build something that will more or less maintain a constant, but adjustable level of pressure, probably driven by an electric motor. I've seen pressure-sensors on this site that increase conductivity with more pressure applied to the sensor, but mechanically I can't think of any way to get my device to work without a pressure sensor to decrease in conductivity with added pressure. Sadly I don't know enough about electrical components or circuitry to make it work with the former. If anyone here would happen to know how I could create such circuit, or can suggest of a purely mechanical alternative I would appreciate it.

Hello, I have a remote control that has no back to it as it was damaged at some point and discarded. Can anyone please recommend a neat way to keep the batteries in the remote, as sellotape ismessy, not particularly reliable and leaves a nasty residue/mark and isn't particularly convenient to remove when replacing the batteries. Thank you so much for your consideration!

Hello I need some help concerning the creation of my super BBMG (bb machine gun) you see I have a green medical regulation aluminum oxygen cylinder (see picture, it is about 3 feet tall and about 3-3.5 inches in diameter) and I am wondering if I pressurize it to 100 psi how long would I be able to maintain a steady rate of fire? Also, my bbmg is made of 3/4 inch pvc pipe and is about 4-5 inches long not including barrel the air inlet is a blow gun valve with a opening the size of a airsoft BB the actual bb outlet is of the same size as the air inlet only the barrel is 3 feet long (I don't think the barrel length will affect the over all time of sustained fire but I don't know for sure) if anyone can help me with this I would be extremely appreciative thanks, fidgety2

Well, after a long absence I am finally back! It had to do with school and doing a VERY big project. Okay, so it was homework, oh well. The point is that I'm back to Instructables. Now, I'm terribly sorry to say to Katarukito that your Dragunuv took up too many pieces. I made up to the stock and realized I couldn't finish it. Seriously, it was a big let-down that I couldn't make it. Well, now that I am done with that, don't let me do anything. I need to finish the Storm 220. Wait, does that mean I have to get off my lazy butt?

So recently, an old laptop of mine died. It was an old dinosaur of a laptop, slowly running down the remaining years of its life. Then it died. So sad. To honor its death I dismantled it. I got an interesting motherboard, some decent speakers, a 5gb harddrive along with a floppy and disk drive. What really interested me the most though is the LCD screen. At first I hoped that I could re-used the screen as a tertiary screen for my desktop, but later I realized the near-impossibility of this task and gave it up. Instead I chose to take the screen apart for its cold cathode lamp. It's almost 12 inches in length, and very thin. Before the motherboard died, the LCD back light was still working. So I wanted to take it out, along with its inverter, to attempt to re-use it. Soon after doing this I saw a problem in my plans: the input of the inverter is a whopping nine wires. This is a bit more than I'm used to dealing with for power supplies. I was wondering if you guys knew any way that I could go around this? At request I can most more pictures and model number of the inverter in case you can't read it in the photo. tl;dr - Cold cathode inverter in picture. output is two wires, input 9 wires. How do I use this
