Moving orange bar

When viewing pages in "How to make Instructables," the lower orange bar will intermittantly move to cover the "previous to next" area of the page when changing to another page. You must then refresh the page to move it and be able to select another page of instructables. Very annoying. Also the preview bar wouldn't work the first time I tried it.

Bike/bar details?

Does anyone have plans or drawings for a bike/bar (pic below)? My friend and I helped load one of these onto a trailer the other day and I have been wanting one ever since. It has a bar in the middle and 10-16 seats (depending on the model) lining the sides where people sit and pedal and drink. The one we saw had a steering wheel in the middle for the bartender. I have not researched the legality of such a vehicle in my area. I have not been able to find anything online thus far. My friends and I are proficient at machining and welding, I would just need some general dimensions and plans to get started. Can anyone help me out?

Input on building a TARDIS Console bar would be appreciated

My boyfriend and I want to have a Who-themed room party at a sci-fi/linux convention in our area.  We've bounced around the idea of having a TARDIS console bar set up in a corner of the room, so I'd really appreciate ideas for the console that could easily be set up and broken down, as this is  going in a room we only have for a weekend. Ideas for random gadgets and doo-hickeys, places to have alcohol and the like would be greatly appreciated as well.  So far we know we want to have a quarter or half keg in the center of the console, located behind us. Leaning towards 10th's design, but might be willing to go for the 11th's more steam punk look. Also, decorating tips for the room as a whole would be good.  So for we want to make roundels out of foam and stick them to the wall with tack to imitate the 10ths 'desktop theme' and to print a door sized TARDIS door to tack to the door to the hotel room. The idea behind the party is that the hotel room and the TARDIS have merged, ala Time Crash.

Ible frustration.

I went through the "food" category of Instructables and I stopped around 60 or so. Now I find I have to click forever to get to the point I left off. I am so frustrated I simply quit looking. Why can't you put a box near the number bar at the bottom of a page so you can type in a number such as (60) and jump to it? I simply won't keep clicking anymore and a number of authors will have to suffer from someone not being exposed to their ideas.

How do I post comments?

I just build a new bar for an American Legion Post. The bar top now is 3/8" red oak flooring with 3 coat of polyurethane.It also has a rail around it 3/4" high. All the veterans here, men and women, want to donate their metals, ribbons and Patches; and embed them in a resin coating. This coat needs to be close to 1/2 " thick. This will be REALLY COOL. Now, I need to know or talk to someone who has worked with resin for advice. Like, can this be done in one pour or 2 or 3 pours? I am prepping everything floatable (ribbons, wood plaques, patches), I am sealing these items with poly to prevent air problems and will be gluing them down. We will only get ONE shot at this; so I would like some advice or help from someone who has worked with this medium. A representative on site would be cool! Thanks. I can be reached by e-mail or cell: 419-699-5546.?

Hello to all,  I am currently re-building a Star Trek type 2 phaser, if that means anything to anyone. I would like to know how to create a circuit that does the following: There are 16 LEDs in two rows of 8. I would like to cycle through them one after another with 2 button switches. ie press a button on the left and the first LED comes on. Press it again and the next LED comes on. Press it a third time and the third LED comes on. and so on. At his point there should be 3 LEDs on. Then, press the right button and that third LED goes off. Press again and the second goes off and so on.  Hope this isn't to long winded. Below is the link to a vid of what I am trying, not very well, to describe. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLYiVdC7Iv4  I would be grateful if anyone could help me out on this.

Multiple LED Bar Scoreboard

Hi everyone, Me and a friend of mine would to make a scoreboard which can display the score of around 70 different people. The way we would like to do this is by making 70 individual led strips which represents a person. Each strip has to contain about 100 leds (so the maximum score is 100). We would like to be able to set each persons score individually from anywhere between 0-100. Preferably with as little knobs as possible.  What do you guys think is the easiest and cheapest way of doing this?  We were thinking about a system with a arduino or some kind of controller and a chain of LED Bar Graphs as shown in the link below. http://i01.i.aliimg.com/photo/v57/241783705/LED_bar_graph_display.jpg We are not that experienced with electrical components so we would like to have some help with that!   Looking forward to hear some of your ideas!

That means 6 columns and two rows.

Idea: motorized cocktail shaker (for a real Ramos Gin Fizz)

There are a couple of motorized martini shakers on the market, but neither of them shake hard enough. I'd like to make one that would simulate the actual motion of a good bar tender. The traditional way to make a Ramos Gin Fizz requires shaking it for 12 minutes. I don't have that kind of endurance. For a martini, I'd like the machine to shake hard enough to chip the ice and leave frost floating in the drink. 1. I'm wondering if an electric drill would be capable of driving this thing with modifying the gearbox. I have no experience creating or modifying gearboxes and would like to avoid that if possible. 2. Anyone out there have (or want to make) a good video of a bartender shaking the hell out of a cocktail? (There is a difference between a casual and an agressive shake.) It needs to be from a perspective perpendicular to the plane of motion. This will allow me to trace the path and recreate it in CAD software. 3. The most exciting thing about this is designing the elliptical mechanism that would produce the realistic shake. I've never done animation in SketchUp. Can it handle gears and levers? Is there something else that you recommend? (no windows software please) I'd love any suggestions you have on any part of this.
