Miscategorized Wanted/Free posts

I understand that people want to ask for things, and want maximum exposure of their request but, to the best of my knowledge, that's what the Wanted category is for. The free category is for things you are giving away, not things you're asking for. The forum is all messy with Free Pro Membership Giveaways, and Wanted posts, and it's difficult to sift through to see any actual posts for free items. Is there a way we can better avoid this, or be more strenuous about enforcing or self-enforcing this? Thanks! Sorry, not tryin' to be a jerk, but if you can put any kind of post in the free section, it shouldn't be a separate section, ya know? -Mike

Share your websites for free samples

A while back I was doing an electronics project and needed some components. I found that you can get free samples of components from some companys if you ask nicely. There are some good instructables on that that I will link below. I am now trying to experiment with different metals and am trying to find some websites that will give out free samples. But please put all the good websites for samples here so that anyone can find them if they have a project they want to do.

Free domain name registration? Answered

Hi!  I was wondering if anyone knows if there is free domain registration out there.  I don't mean a subdomain like or anything like that, I want and I also don't need hosting as I have my own server.  I'm pretty sure that there isn't anything like that out there, but I thought that if anyone would know, it would be someone on here.  If there isn't a free alternative, I currently use for my domains that I already own, so is there a better registrar, or am I better off with 1and1?

Too Short for an Instructable- free water

A friend showed me this trick at Safeway. If you are thirsty, but either 1) Don't have money on you or 2) Don't want to buy a whole bottle just for a few sips, most food stores are required to give free water to anyone who asks. There will be no signs advertising this fact. Simply walk up to the counter (we did this at a small Starbucks stand by the bakery) and politely ask for a drink of water. My friend received a clear plastic cup filled with water and ice, no charge. Then I walked up and bought a Dr. Pepper, not free of charge.

Free Fruit from your Neighbors

This nytimes article shows just how easy it can be to get free local fruit from trees in your neighborhood. If it's hanging over onto public property, you can go for it. Of course, it's even better to meet the owner and even trade some of your own bounty.I do this pretty often. In my own backyard I get free figs from one neighbor's tree that extends into our space, raspberries off a vine on our fence and oranges from a tree in our yard. Neighbor, Can You Spare a Plum?

Gluten Free Category

I believe there should be a gluten free category in the Food section much like there is a Vegan section. Having to go through hundreds, if not thousands, of recipes to see which I can and cannot make for my gluten intolerant family and friends is a little disappointing, considering how widely spread such an allergy is. I still do it of course, and I enjoy seeing all the delicious looking things, but still slightly bothersome. Thanks for the amazing site that has entertained me and given me wonderful ideas for years.

How to get free laundry with a card operated machine

I moved into a new apartment with a washer/dryer in my place. The only problem is I have to pay to use the washer/dryer. They use one of these new credit card things that has a chip in it that gets read by the machine. I want to know if there's a way I can trick the machine or trick my card so I can get free laundry. Normally I don't like doing stuff like this, but at 2.00 to wash and 1.50 to dry, I feel ripped off.

Free Software Sources

. I'll kick this off with my all time favorite, SourceForge. "The world's largest Open Source software development web site.". No matter what you want to do, you can probably find a free program that will do it at SourceForge.. Quality of the programs varies widely, but if you pay attention to last revision dates (be wary if it hasn't been updated in a few years or hasn't been updated since it was posted) and the number of downloads (more is usually better), you can skip over the lesser stuff.. Not sure how they handle malware prevention, but I've never been infected by any of the plethora of stuff I've downloaded.. . 2008-04-26. Here's the sources others have contributed, in a handy list with links.

Free Energy... NOT From Saltwater!

This one's for Kiteman. Right after an independent cancer cure researcher in Ohio discovers that he can make saltwater burn, we get a story from the UK about a water heater with an efficiency of 250%-300%.The device seems to break the fundamental physical law that energy cannot be created from nothing - but researchers believe it taps into a previously unrecognised source of energy, stored at a sub-atomic level within the hydrogen atoms in water. The system - developed by scientists at a firm called Ecowatts in a nondescript laboratory on an industrial estate at Lancing, West Sussex - involves passing an electrical current through a mixture of water, potassium carbonate (otherwise known as potash) and a secret liquid catalyst, based on chrome. full story
