Ask Eric A Question!

After reading through this interview that sparked something in me, We (the community) should hold our own interview with Eric.I think it would be nice to get to know the CEO of Instructables!So, I am asking, three questions per user. No more than three.Please make them appropriate for Instructables (family)Then whenever the lot of you have asked, I'll get them into a document, and PM them to Eric.Also, scan through existing comments to make sure your question hasn't already been asked.GO!

New instructables feature for FREE users

After the success of my first Perl script thread, I just had inspiration to write another one (or modify the last rather) In this thread, I give a breakdown of your instructables by views. You get to see the number of instructables you have that have 1000-9999 views, 10000-24999 views, 25000-49999 views, 50000-99999 views and 10000+ views. As well as the total views of all of your instructables as before. Yay! So here is my fact about eric: ewilhelm Instructables: 124 Total Ible Views: 1660250 1,000-9,999 views: 74 10,000-24,999 views: 21 25,000-49,999 views: 8 50,000-99,999 views: 6 100,000+ views: 1 And a less interesting one about me: jayefuu Instructables: 16 Total Ible Views: 66682 1,000-9,999 views: 7 10,000-24,999 views: 1 25,000-49,999 views: 1 50,000-99,999 views: 0 100,000+ views: 0 Post below to see yours!

Halloween Sincerity

Just in case anyone was wondering, I knew you didn't doubt it, we have photographic evidence of Eric signing the Halloween postcards! It took an army of halloween elves to keep up with the envelope stuffing as Eric signed a postcard roughly every 8 seconds, yes, I timed him. No I do not know how he accomplished that act of super human speed.

Eric, (or any other kiteboarders who see this), please be careful!

Did you see the news story about the guy who was kitesurfing during Fay and got slammed around? Linky.I know you all are smarter than that...but please be careful anyhow...I'd hate to see a forum topic about one of you all getting hurt.

Safe and Sound

Hey homeboys and girls. This is Bilal checking in from Eric's dining room table. So it's true, I did have a bit of trouble with Airport Security. They made me miss my flight checking out all my crazy scary gadgets. It would be irritating but hey, I'm sure loads of people haven't seen a metronome before. Gasp! It ticks! Arriving in SF would have been quite unsatisfactory without a brief car chase so thankfully security obliged us with a short run with their tiny electric cars. Never fear, Eric, Christy and I made a swift getaway to the hills. Go Volvo go! -BG (thanks for breakfast Eric)

How to Make Your Tools, Gadgets and Appliances Last Forever

Check out Popular Mechanic's How to Make Your Tools, Gadgets and Appliances Last Forever, where I -- but mostly my grandfather's circular saw -- am mentioned.How many M.I.T. engineering Ph.D.s does it take to repair a dishwasher? In the case of a balky Maytag at Eric Wilhelm's house in Oakland, Calif., one doctorate sufficed. After a plastic wheel on the dishwasher's upper rack broke off of its assembly, Wilhelm faced a classic consumer conundrum. The same plastic part had broken and been replaced three times--and now the warranty had ended. Considering this history and Wilhelm's mounting frustration, repairing the 3-year-old appliance seemed marginally less logical than buying a new one.But discarding the machine didn't feel right to Wilhelm, who is the co-founder and CEO of Instructables.com, a website that details DIY projects, from simple repairs to elaborate, artsy computer mods. Armed with a drill, a vise and a spare stainless-steel bolt, Wilhelm repaired the wheel and got his rack rolling again--and it hasn't broken since. "From a purely monetary standpoint, it probably made no sense for me to spend an hour and a half fixing a plastic wheel on my dishwasher," he says. "But I got an intangible reward--a satisfied feeling that I fixed something and didn't replace it." Here's my Instructable on the dishwasher repair: Maytag Quiet Series 300 Dishwasher Wheel Repair Hack, and you'll probably be amused by my rockstar-esque photoshoot with the circular saw for this article.
