Suggestion - Blocked Video

Many of us out here have firewalls that block video. The result is a box with the 'X'. This looks kludgy. Is there anything you can do? Perhaps show a picture in place of the video?

Instructable blocked at my school

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?

WImeo is censored in Indonesia

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

How do I get Notepad up?

Okay. So apparently, my school has figured out how to keep you from deleting the source from web pages so you can use the empty source thing as notepad. Does anyone know any other way to get notepad up? The regular notepad program is blocked too.

Why does Instructable bar move over page numbers blocking access?

After looking at several pages, an Instructables 'bar' show up and blocks bottom line / photo of projects. Then, blocks page numbers so I have to either reload pages or go to a project to 'reset' it. Big hassle. I this something that's just a part of the WEB site or other? Thanks, Phil

Pages blocked by odd pictures and search banner

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

I guess this really is an adult site now

Last week I had a couple days off school, so a friend and I went to visit a teacher at my old high school. One of my Ibles came up in conversation, so I borrowed a computer to pull it up. Guess what? My senior year of high school Ibles had no restrictions. In the last year and a half Instructables has been reclassified as Adult. As a result, nobody in the Topeka school district can access Instructables. Hmmmm, I wonder why they would think Ibles contained adult content, which might not be appropriate for the elementary school students? Such a mystery...

How to disable this openDNS thing?

I'm using a Mac. So, every time I open a website like twitter and youtube and facebook, openDNS always blocks it. It redirects it to a website ( and I'm not sure why this is happening. Just a minute ago it was okay. I left it like for only 30 minutes (didn't shut it down) and then when I try restarting my Safari, I could not access these websites. Before I left it, I could open it. The only thing I did is to open some youtube videos and download "genio" (not sure what it is) and installed it and then uninstalled it. why is this happening? and how to fix this? Thanks (:

How does one hack the school firewall to access UDP ports for a VOIP telephone?

I bought a magicJack for internet telephone service. It works great at home and since the device is small and portable, I thought I could bring it to school and have a telephone in my room while there, too. However, the device cannot access magicJack's servers so it doesn't work. MagicJack says it uses a given range of UDP ports. Apparently the district computer Nazis have blocked access and they aren't going to open them for me. Can I open them myself?

Lights inside glass block

I have painted several glass blocks for a craft show.  When I put the lights inside and turn the block back over, all the lights fall right to the bottom of the block and the top of the block is not lit.  I see yours are lit and most of the ones I see are lit up top.  I tried glue dots which only stuck to my nails instead of the glass block.  Any suggestions?

Ad Blocking ads?

If I use the ad-block plug for firefox to block ads on instructables will this impact the amount of money they make from the ads? Are the ads hit based, or are they simply paid to embed them?
