Favorites Folder

Hi there, I love this site and as a result am slowly accumulating a massive amount of instructables in my favorites. Now when I'm feeling creative, I'm having a hard time finding something appropriate in my tome. A good solution would be the ability to organize favorites by topic. Like a folder system. That way, I could go right to an electronic project (for instance) if I had a folder for that, instead of having to sift through a ton of stuff that, though I enjoy, isn't what I'm currently looking for. Anyway, a humble suggestion. Perhaps others have the same situation.

Save Instructables in a Folder

Hi, I am not sure if this has been suggested before.  I have been a member for years on this site and find the projects fantastic.  I have even built some!  I am always coming across instructables that I want to try and spend a lot of time on the site surfing and coming across great projects.  I would like to see a feature where we could add an instructable to our own "favourites" list so that we can manage them and go back to them and build them without having to add them to the web-browser favourites.  This way, we can keep a list of those 'ibles that we intend coming back to inside the website.  Perhaps we can even share that list with other users.  Just a thought.

Can it be possible to seperate favorites with folders?

Is it possible for members to categorize their favorites? for an example...i have many interest...woodworking, cake making and sewing etc. It would be great if i can make separate folders and put each in their specific folder...easier to find stuff! perhaps you could make it a pro feature?? please let me know what you think?

Suggestion Time!

Hey Instructables, it's suggestion time! So, here it is: You should be able to put your "favorites" into folders (like labels in gmail, or folders in thunderbird...). This would help me a lot, since I have 203 favourited instructables (and counting!) Thanks, Nick

How To Get Music From an IPod (all models)

Here's how you do it. 1. Hook the iPod up to the computer. If iTunes pops up and asks you if you want to replace anything, say no. You can hit ctrl-shift-esc and go to processes, then close the iPodService.exe to get you more time. 2. Go to My Computer. It should list the iPod as whatever you named the iPod (like Joe's iPod). Click on the drive. 3. You should see some folders. If you don't see one named iPod_Control, go to the Tools option at the top of the window (its on the bar with File and Edit). Click on the "Folder Options" selection at the bottom. When that opens, click the View tab at the top, then scroll down the list and choose the "show hidden files and folders" button under the Hidden Files and Folders folder. The iPod_Control should show up. If not, go to the address bar and type it in. 4. Under iPod_Control, you should see a Music folder. From here, you can either copy the whole folder and paste it somewhere on the computer and put them in iTunes later, or you can find songs. If you do a search, you should be able to find songs by putting in what to search full under "word or phrase in file". If you want to put in music that will play in the iPod directly, you're going to have to go into one of the folders in the music folder (usually like f00 or f01 or something), find a file (usually with a random 4 letter name like MLKJ), take the song you want to play, rename it as the song you're replacing, then copy and paste it in there. Usually you want to reaname the song you're replacing first, then find it later. If you want to make sure you don't replace something you want, view the folder with details, right-click the top of the window in the bar that says "name" and check Author or Title. This will show what you're replacing. 5. If you want to put music on the iPod but don't want to have to lose anything, your best bet is to take the songs you want, put them in a folder on the iPod, and take them back to your home computer, add them to iTunes, then put them on your iPod. 6. To add songs to iTunes from a folder, go to File, click Add Folder, then find the folder you want and go. It automatically keeps the names and usually the album art with the songs. :B-Rad

I can't drag and drop images from camera to folder....

Ok, so this one has been bothering me for a while. I hook my camera up via USB to my computer, and drag the pictures I took to folders on my hard drive. I liked this method because I didn't have to name pictures, and it was a helluva lot faster. But, for a while now, I haven't been able to drag and drop pictures to folders. I don't know why. Right now, I'm forced to use Windows Picture Wizard, which I detest. I've checked, and it seems to be my camera, because I can drag and drop from folder to folder on my computer. I'm running XP, it's a Canon Powershot S3 IS, and I'm working on a fairly big iBle. Please, don't say it's because I have a Canon (W-Burg)! Thanks for any help!

iTunes suxxors

I'm just going through my music now and I removed my entire library so I could go through my music and delete duplicates and whatnot without iTunes shitting itself because it's missing files. For this example I'll use my Tupac Shakur discography as an example. I had downloaded two Tupac discography's to go through and mix and match them (Example: Albums I don't have, or one discography has a high bit rate version of an album then what's in my music folder). That all done and said, which took a while, I dragged just my Tupac folder (updated one) into the itunes window, it says I have 1.83 gigs of music (remember just the Tupac stuff) yet the finder says the folder weighs 2gigs exactly. There's quite a difference between 1.83 gigs and 2, roughly 240mb or more. Anyone else notice this problem with their library, another reason to hate apple more? All together my music folder reads 9.96gb but in itunes it only comes to like 6.52 something? I call fuckin shenanigans, anyone else? Grab your pitchforks...

transferring voice/meeting from itouch to pc

This should be easy, i will be looking for my cables after this this, so this is a safety net if i fail,  i want to transfer  a meeting recorded  using the  iphone/itouch  italk app to my PC, i never used the app before, so messed up by not pretesting thoroughly, i still probably would have missed the limit on file size. i bought the premium version of italk next, big $2 , but it downloaded as a separate app. with no files to transfer, i figure rather then go crazy reading all the stuff i would take a earphone cord and plug it into one of my PC line in audio jacks and just play the file. like i did 20 some years ago with cassette tapes and vinyl. wish they would have put the limits on the front screen, i would have spent the 2 bucks to save all this  i looked for a folder to just import the folder or cay the folder the itouch, just accessed the dcim folder, the file is aiff and about 90 minutes so i if had a program to look into the the itouch i am sure i could copy it, would be way faster too, like 90minutes! anyone know a open source utility that would get me in into the itouch and get this proprietary hidden file? thanks in advance. /

Instructable Filing System

Dear Fellow Forum Readers, A while ago, I posted an idea/request asking about the possibility of making the names of Instructable  PDF files conform to a certain standard for ease of filing. I found my own best solution. If anyone can use this idea, please do! What this project does is to add symbols to the titles of instructables which indicate awards and featured status for each downloaded Instructable. I am using a Mac and purchased the app "A Better Finder Rename 9". Within a parent folder entitled 'Instructables Downloads' I created a group of folders with the symbols corresponding to the featured/awards symbols of the given Instructables. For example, if there is one star for an Instructable, I designate that this way: (*). If there is a star and a goblet, it is designated like this: (*+). I make a folder for each of the combinations of stars and goblets and then as I download (I download many at a time) I just save them to these folders. Then afterwards, I use "A Better Finder Rename" to add the designations as a suffix to the Instructable titles. When I want to quickly pick out the most awarded Instructable out of several options for a given project, I can see right away which one is most recognized as excellent. Finally, I made a master Instructables folder with broad catagories within which to sort my downloads, e.g. Electronics & Computer Instructables, Maker & Prototyping Instructables, Gardening & Homesteading Instructables, etc. Now I have a nice library for portability and offline use! Will many people want this? I doubt it. But it makes my substantial collection easy to go through and saves time when I want to look for recognized excellence among many choices of projects. Besides, it's fun and 'therapeutic' for me to idly sort, rename and file these great projects on a lazy afternoon (not enough of those!). Helps me mull what I'll work on next, too. :-) TN

I was just wondering if it would be possible to make the page of the "favorites" so that the people could choose to see 90 favorites instructables per page (like when you look at the "recent" instructables page, for example). I was thinking about this because I have many "favorites" and it really take long time to arrive to my last page (with only 15 instructables displayed per page)....or maybe be able to organize them in diy folders (food, bike, wood...). I don't have really any knowledge in computer so I' m not sure about how much work this will take...

New Weekend or one day Instructables. (aimed at instructables staff.)

Consider this, you're a student with very little spare time and you get a day off, what can you do? Search for an instructable all day? NO! If there was a folder of instructables in every genre, full of one or two day projects it would be great for people like me who want to do something productive or helpful in a short amount of time. For example you go into the Technology genre, but you don't have time to make a super complicated ipod dock, so you hit the one day folder and POW! Quick, easy and super fast one day instructables. I'm sure many agree with this idea and the concept behind it is fairly simple and undemanding. Please take into account. All the best. l3owzaaaah.

"Unextract" Converted Batch Files

Have you ever wondered how to do something in batch that someone has already done and wrapped it nicely in a little .exe file? Some people like to keep their batch programming secrets to themselves, and don't want to share, so then convert their batch file to .exe. But you can't discover their secrets if they have converted it to .exe, because all you will find is gibberish. Before I will tell you how to "unextract" an .exe, you must now how ".bat to .exe" programs work. What they basically do is "wrap" a batch file with an executable; think about a Christmas present. Pretend the gift inside is the secrets of the batch file, and the wrapping on the outside is like the executable, which prevents you from "seeing" the secrets inside. But this is no ordinary present, the wrapping on the outside can not be torn or opened, you must press a button in order to to "unwrap" it. But when it "unwraps", it shows you what it is, but hiding the secrets. If you couldn't fully understand that, here is what actually happens. Try to compare the two.Batch files in executable form cannot be viewed as the batch language. If you open it in notepad, you will get a whole bunch of symbols. In the philosophy above, pressing the "button" is the same as opening the file as an executable. It opens just like a batch file, but if you try to edit it, you won't be able to read it. What the executable does, is temporarily extracts the batch file within it, to a temp folder.Now to the "how to" part. Here is where that "temp" (temporary) folder is: %userprofile%\Local Settings\TempNow all you have to do is copy and paste that into a windows explorer address bar. You will now be in a temp folder where the batch file will be dumped. Now you have to run the .exe file. But now you do have to get your hands dirty (virtually!). Search in each folder till you find a batch file, most commonly called batchfile.bat. Simply right click, press edit, and your in!So that's how to "unextract" a converted batch file! (note: I didn't make it an instructible because, well, no one likes a one step instructable!)Good Luck!

USB track reader and preamp.

I have one of the pox but useful Jensen microstereo's, and like most of these devices, they have a "hard limit" for memory sticks, of 16 Gig, but they also have a folder limit of 100 folders and 998 (?) files. This means that as I compile all of my interviews, lectures and sundry recordings on 16 Gig USB sticks - while the amount of data is below 16 Gig, the folder levels and amounts, and the amount of short audio tracks, exceed the internal filing systems capacities of the audio player. The other thing is that the idiots who designed the Jensen audio player did, was to create a file reader display that only shows the number of the track (more or less) and it's though a tiny DARK BLUE SLIT of a lense, that is highly directional - you can only see the track number at 45* above the unit's front. I would kind of like to bypass it and get a functional low power audio processor with screen that has a navibable directory system. Sure this is kind of available as a tablet, PC, laptop, smart phone etc., but I really just want a basic player that shows which directory - by name and number, and which file - by name and number, and has no real limit on the directory depths or file amounts. I also want a navigable interface. So aside from, repurposing an old laptop / cheap (pox) tablet etc., or a smart phone (?) as a single purpose non portable device, does anyone know of such an audio player, if it's made, who by and or where to buy it from, OR if there is one available some way by an Adurino (?) / Raspberry design that could come in at around $50 - $80 to build?
