KillerKs pistol is a block trigger so why is it in a group that hates block triggers?

Neighbors Project just launched a new group dedicated purely to the art of block parties. Check it out.Those Instructables will still appear in this group, but the majority of the discussion about block parties will happen in the Block Party group. Enjoy!

Ok, i have found a way to class the block triggers without posting a list with a zillion links.When you find a block trigger gun, add it to this group. If you look at the ible, and see that it is added to the group, then it is a block trigger.

What is wrong with the block trigger mechanism because I have yet to see a powerful gun without the mechanism. and the sear system has it's flaws. So what I think you hate is the mechanism and what do you think about the mechanism with the true trigger attached?

I need to block all porn contents from my Mac. My young friend uses the computer and I notice that when she is logging out, she clicks out of porn sites those are opened and tells me she doesn't know how they got there. The question I have is can porn sites pop out of nowhere and show their contents out of the blue? Please help and excuse my ignorance in this. Thank you.

Hello, I am working on a project that will lift up a flap, that is mounted to the bottom of a screen door, when the door opens. I am using a block and tackle to do the lifting when the door swing open. Everything works as expected but I would like the flap to travel more, move up/down more but I am not sure how to accomplish that. I the attached image, the red X's indicates a non-moveable part. The 2 black circles are pulleys. The yellow line is the rope. The green up/down arrow is the part that I would like to raise up higher. Is there a way to do that without getting too complicated? Thanks!

Hi all Is it possible to stop anyone entering a specific number (phone number) on my network? I have a TP Link TL -WR642G if that helps. I am asking that because there have been some people in our network entering phone numbers into ads all over the net...

Today I'm going to talk about the so dreaded block trigger that everyone hates. But why? You say they lack (or have none) innovation. You can't deny it. Even the greatest K'NEXers started out with block triggers. The K'NEX gun itself started with a block trigger. So people are just shunning our orgin. With out the block trigger, K'NEX guns would've NEVER existed. Think about it. Since newer systems were thought of and built, people just don't prefer block triggers. I don't hate block triggers, i just don't prefer them. It's not like we should all go praise them for they are our orgin, but we should just ignore them if you still hate them, or just keep in mind that this is our orgin and not even say a thing.

Are there any block pin guns on this site? because i made one and wanna know if it is unique. i have seen one on knex innovation but it didnt work very well. so i wanted to make one that worked very well with a good removable mag system. the reason why im asking is because i wanna know if im the first one. i dont weanna brag about it either because that gets annoying now a days. please respond and if you have one share your idea or creation here!! PS: people please stop posting the same type of guns over and over again. we have enough of them. if you really care about knex guns then you would start looking into creating different types of guns and mechanisms. if you do post the same kind of gun make sure it has everything on it. for example: an sniper rifle should shoot more than 150 ft and have a removeable magazine and look nice not crappy. should be strong and not weak. anyways you get my point.

I would like to have a way to block a user, or ban a user from commenting on my instructables. Currently you can send a patch, subscribe to, or send a private message to a user. I would like to see a block tool as well. I have had users that started discussion threads on my instructables that become offtopic, or inappropriate. Flagging the individual comments when they post takes time. If we could block them, then it would stop the commenting all at once. Instructables could even use this filter as a guide to see what users consistently are being blocked, and use it to ban users who are abusive.

I hate ads. I hate them so much. My Internet is incredibly slow with them. But, there is 2 GREAT add-ons for Firefox. One is Adblocker, and FlashBlock. Adblocker can block most images. There is usually a little translucent tab that pops up with the word "block" on it, along with the button in the upper right hand corner that allows you to choose what to block. It's entirely free. But,blocking images weren't enough to speed up Firefox. Then I discovered FlashBlock. Guess what it does. It's slightly defective in a way that it blocks EVERY .flv or .swf item on the page, including YouTube videos, but if you roll your mouse over the blocked area, the little flash sign will change to a play arrow, allowing you to play the item without complications. This is also 100% free. I highly recommend these to anyone using Firefox so they can speed it up very significantly, especially if you're using a Netbook. -NYPA

One of my children was on a game site called "girl games", and a very inappropriate ad was displayed in the center of the screen without any prompting from my child. My children will no longer be going on this site, and I think a whole lot more discretion and good judgment should be used by the site as far as their ads are concerned. The ad was very upsetting to my children, and therefore to myself. These ads are for a website called 'IMVU', which is a 3-D avatar chat room. The ads show skimpily dressed people, usually female, in compromising positions. They are placed on all kinds of web sites, even though the website in question may contain games for small children, which is indeed were this ad was. Do we want our children looking at disgusting and perverted images like this?

I have seen RFID wallets, sleeves, and cards. I like the IDEA of RFID blocking cards that you sandwich your credit cards between. So, my question is thus... If I had two cards made of 21 gauge aluminum and placed them on in the last pocket on both sides of my wallet, would this block the RFID scanners? If not, then what would it take? What just programming some RFID chips and put them in my wallet to eff with the scanners? I know there are things like this in the market, but very over priced. I have contacts in the RFID scanning and deployment world, so it would not be hard for my to get my hands on this stuff. What do you all think!?

Would putting aluminum foil on the windows on the side of the house that gets the most sun be helpful in blocking out the heat of the sun? Our HVAC literally runs all day, from 8am-1am, and we're trying to help cut out some of its work before it goes on strike! If you know what I mean... Any advice?

Instructables is blocked at my school. I had it unblocked at one point, and since then it is again blocked. How do I convince the higher ups, principal and IT personnel, that this is a website that the school should be able to access. I teach at a school that teaches high school age students trades like welding, culinary arts, carpentry, graphic design, automotive technology, machine tool, metal fab, masonry, business, nursing, agriculture, and cosmetology. I think I hit all the classes. Instructables would be a great site for students or classes to showcase their work. Suggestions?

Greetings! I'm curious about everyone's experience with using RIFD blocking fabric for blocking phone transmissions. If I put my phone in a pocket like this, will my phone struggle even harder to find a signal and run my battery down quickly? What other concerns come into play with using this to block signals to digital devices? I plan to experiment with different fabrics from lessemf.com if anyone has some recommendations or warnings. Thanks! image supplied by http://creativity-online.com/work/trident-focus-life-gear-collection/

Why is everyone so hyped up about knex block triggers, you dont have to go to the block trigger instructibles. If you do go to thier instructible you dont have to tell them thier gun sucks. This whole knex gun thing started out as block triggers.Back then Every one liked them and almost every instructible was block trigger. When oodulumps, Mepain, and all the other good knex builders came in,they started making all this cool stuff that was different than block triggers. After they posted all the cool stuff they had going on, new people came in ,and got inspired to make knex guns. They wanted to post thier guns , so they did. And now that all the older people are so tired of block triggers, they send bad comments to people who are new to knex guns. Which I think is wrong because they are at the level of knex guns that we used to be at one year ago. They only difference is that they came later, and dont know as much as we do. If anyone disagrees with my opinion please comment on why you disagree. Sorry if I had any misspelled words in this forum, or if you did not understand. Please tell me if you do not understand and I will fix that.Thank you for reading.

Ok so at my school they are ultra paranoid and dont want us downloading ZIP files or going to sites with certain keywords. Well for a while that has been making research for progects and such VERY VERY hard. Last year me and my buddies figured out that we could just use a proxy site like www.cantbustme.com or www.hidemyass.com ETC ETC. But this year they blocked proxy and they blocked the keyword "Proxy" all together : ( . Now I can barely research at school and about 40% of the internet is blocked, they also blocked ZIP files which is a major pain in the butt. I really really need to get by this block and if you all could help me out it would be awesome! Oh and my school uses Dell desktop PC's and I am using a Macbook, nothing is installed on my computer so I think it is the schools network that is blocking me with Dansgaurdian .http://dansguardian.org/

So, I got some feedback that my 'ible has some errors in it (which is somewhat expected :D ) I went to the instructable, to do some editing and noticed that the problems are likely coming from and tags that are in the code blocks. I tried to remove them, but they come back when I save. I noticed this happens in *all* my code blocks. Changing the format of text in code blocks makes Instructables unacceptable as a way to share code. Considering the amount of code for many projects on this site, this potentially breaks many of them, or at the very least makes it harder for others to copy the code for their projects. Please make tags repect all formatting within! Thanks, JR

The "overlay" advertisement for the Gifts page, which was deployed around noon, blocks access to the Contests, Forums, and Submit links in the masthead. This is annoying and ought to be remedied :-/ UPDATE: Somebody noticed this pretty quickly. The ad is now positioned in the empty space next to the Instructables title.

The OPENDNS DNS lookup and anti-phishing service I've used for the last few years has suddenly decided that the streamsend redirected links in the Instructables weekly newsletters are an attempt at phishing. I am able to access the instructables web site directly, but I can't follow links from your emails any more. I receive the weekly newsletter through Yahoo email. My older Instructables newsletters that I was previously able to read are having their streamsend links blocked too. This is a problem between streamsend and OPENDNS. However, Instructables is affected by this if they're a customer of streamsend.

I'm not sure what's happening to the pages I'm viewing: - the orange search banner is across many of the pages I look at, and I can't get it to budge, so it blocks the content under it - on my "You" page, the photos from the members I've subscribed to are spread out all over the page, blocking the rest of the content on the page. Other problems I'm having- - When I publish an Instructable, I can't budge the bar to show the expense or level of difficulty - My replies to some of the comments got bunched together under one comment (I noticed someone else had this problem, too, when I read their comments). None of these is a big problem, and I love the site overall, but the search banner is annoying when it covers part of some instructions ;P

Hi I live in Indonesia and am a great fan of instructables, I recently signed up for Arduino class and robotics class. But turns out Wimeo that you use to show videos is blocked in Indonesia ( to stop people watching porn) This makes it harder to follow the classes and see results of experiments and so on. Could you also make the videos available on youtube and just put a link in under the videos as that is not blocked here. ? thank you for your attention

Everyone had a robo-tastic time at the Robot Block Party for National Robotics Week at the Autodesk Gallery! On Monday, April 9, the Instructables crew invited the community to check out robot demos, workshops, and enjoy home-made liquid nitrogen ice cream! Here are some images of the party - Thanks to everyone who joined us, what a blast!

My MIT undergraduate advisor and all-around-mechanical-design-ninja, Alex Slocum, created these foam building blocks/packing material, he calls Foameez. He sent Instructables a box full of them hoping we'd be able to come up with some cool uses. So far we've made Marge Simpson hair and a Fantastic Four Thing-like costume. What would you build with these? If your idea is compelling enough, I'll send you some...

Does anybody have any tips or techniques for breaking out of a spell of artist's block? I've been somewhat uninspired for a couple of months now, and it's making me crazy. I'm dying to create something, but every time I go out to the studio, I just wind up staring at the tools & materials for an hour or so, getting frustrated and leaving. I've tried just starting to work in the hopes that the materials would tell me where they wanted to go, but the results have been less than satisfying. If it's helpful, my current areas of interest are kiln glass (with an emphasis on recycling old bottle & window glass) and copper enameling. What have others done to get out of a creative slump? Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Yes, yes, I know. There are many ways to unblock a website, but most are for Windows machines, not Macs. My whole school has Macintosh computers, therefore none of the CMD prompts work for me.Any Ideas on how to get around this business?Specs of the computers:The school computers are OS XEach computer is a G5I have next to no computer h4xing skills.Firebert010 influenced me so much with his background I used it, all credit of awesomeness goes to him.:D
