Possible accidental early publishing?

Today, I got a comment from a random stranger whom I have never seen before on this site.  The comment was posted on an unpublished ible, which I have NOT posted a link to on the site.   Interestingly, looking at the publish date, it says it was published today, although I never published the ible at all, and earlier today it said [date] in that spot The instructable IS a collaboration with Oblivitus, who agreed to help me with a few images for it.  Keywords and categories have been added if that helps any.

Subscribers' projects showing up too soon?

I like the new bar with "subscription activity", but there may be a bug, in that three of the first five projects on the list haven't actually been published yet. That will kind of spoil the surprise, won't it?

Merry (early) christmas!

Hey all, I decided that since so many people were wanting to see my new gun, I'd post it early. Besides, there are so many christmas guns because people were following the trend, that mine would be overlooked. So, take a look, tell me what you think. www.instructables.com/id/TJASTR2-1/ (PS I know this is a bit spammish, but since my last instructable wasn't posted for 4 days, I'm thinking that this might not even come out for christmas.)

The 1 o'clock-in-the-morning Thread

Welcome to the 1 o'clock thread. This is pretty much off-topic, but there's a rule: you can only post after 1 o'clock, your time.Just to be specific:Once you go to sleep, even a nap, you can't post until the next day.If you manage to polyphastically sleep, or you don't go to bed until 6AM, somehow making you awake at 1, wait until you're tired.The point is to see how we are on the brink of insanity... this post, as you may or may not see, was written around 1... and I think it shows.

AHHHHHHHHHHH! MIT Early Action Results Soon!!!

AHHHHHHH! I'M SO NERVOUS! MIT is releasing their decision for Early Action applicants at 12 noon today X_X. My hands are shaking and I can't think straight. I thought early action was supposed to be a good thing, but all it does is make the applicant crazy the last few hours before the results are posted.... Sigh..... Perhaps I just need a haiku: Today is the day MIT is amazing Please can I get in?

Burning Man Accidentally Burns Early

Burning Man update:The Man caught (or was set) on fire early this morning during the lunar eclipse. The BRC fire crew extinguished the blaze, and they're rebuilding the structure and replacing the neon now. The fireworks and fuel hadn't been added yet, so the damage wasn't total.Story, photos, and more links from Scott Beale of Laughing Squid

What's the best way to wake yourself up?

I want to wake up early (5 or 6) regularly, and even if I sleep fairly early (is before 12 early?) I can't get up til 8 at the earliest. Is the only solution to sleep earlier??? I ask this because there's just not enough hours in the day. What do you guys usually do? Oh, and without having someone give a wake-up call or something. Because no one else is awake at that hour. (And nothing hi-tech. Wouldn't understand it!)

Refinishing hood of early 90's BMW?

My buddy has an early 90's BMW...the model number slips my mind. It's jet black, but for reasons unknown, the front hood's clear coat has faded considerably. I was planning to simply mask everything and use some DuPont Clear Acrylic lacquer that I picked up at an Advanced Auto Parts store nearby; then buff it out later with polishing compound. Am I missing anything? It's completely rust-free, no dents etc. Thanks.

What happened to early entries in this contest?

I am just wondering what happened to the early entries in this contest? There are quite a few of them missing. I sent an e-mail to info@instructables.com about a week ago and received no reply. I had an entry, "Embed an OEM GPS Into Anything" and received no communication that is was disqualified, removed...etc. Just one day it was not in the contest anymore. Can anyone tell me what happened? Have any of the other authors already posted questions about this and I am missing them?

How can I hybridize tomatoes? Answered

I am trying to make a "super tomato" that grows fast with large sweet juicy fruit, and is a hybrid of a roma, big boy, and early girl (Also possibly a siberian tomato) I think I should cross pollinate the roma and big boy and then hybridize the seed from the hybridization with the early girl but I'm not positive someone please tell me how to do this.

How can I heat my swimming pool early? Although I live in the south (NC), my pool is shaded by neighbors' huge trees. Answered

It takes 2 months to get to a good swimming temperature.The pool is 16 x 30', depth varies from 3' to 9'.? I have a solar blanket which will keep the heat in. But it will also add trash(grass and gravel) if I put it on and take it off everyday.

Early Halloween Costume Question (Button Costume- What should I call myself?)

I know it's early, but today my friend and I were talking about what we wanted to be for Halloween. Since I bought a very expensive costume last year, I wanted to make a costume this year using what I have. I collect buttons, so I had the idea that I could pin them all over a shirt and a pair of pants. My friend suggested that I use specific types of pins in a theme (ex: political buttons for a political activist, video game and science buttons for a geek/nerd). But, I want to use all of my various types of buttons on one costume. I want my Yankees buttons, Evanescence buttons, political spoof buttons, abstract art buttons, and UAA stop codon buttons all at the same time! What can I say that I am dressed up as (beside a button collector)?

How do you define "cold"?

Seeing as how we all live in different parts of the world, I got to wondering how y'all define "cold" and "hot", and when it is. Down here in mid-Georgia, hot is around 85-90 degrees and up, starting in late March to early April, and lasting until mid October. Cold starts at around 50-45 degrees (though I can go with shorts and a T-shirt in 20s) and those temperatures start about mid-November until early February. Anytime in-between is the perfect mellow temperatures. Just curious. Thanks!

Natural alternatives for insecticides?

I know its a bit early but the early bird gets the worm!!! In my area pesticides are banned for use on personal gardens and lawns for about 2 years now. Last year my poor peach tree really didn’t have any edible and or usable peaches on my tree because of infestations of bugs. I was wandering if any of you knowledgeable people could direct me on what kind of natural insecticides I could use in the future for my peach tree?so I can at least have some edible peaches for eats and jam. The squirrels usually take their share too. *darn little buggers!!!* Thanks. :)
