I am apparently unable to upload images to my library, and I'bles Web pages also show an indefinite "loading" condition. This has been going on for several days now. It seems like there are some stupid "hidden embedded images" from traffic analysis firms that are hanging things up. I currently see "Waiting for pixel.quantserve.com..." on one tab (this one!), "Transferring data from beacon.scorecardresearch.com..." on another tab (my image upload attempt), and the nefarious "Waiting for ad.doubleclick.net..." on two others.

How do you hang up your christmas lights? On our fence I used zip ties, but when I went to put lights around some windows, I saw the Window christmas light frame but I didn't have the right lights for it and used Duct Tape. Any ideas?

I saw these Orka hanging vegetable keep sacks and as I can't buy them (availability and the price are the issue) I was wondering if anyone has an idea or advice on how to make them yourself? http://www.thegreenhead.com/2011/08/vegetable-keep-sacks.php

This Edgar Allan Poe hanging mixed media sculpture was created from a cereal box and paper. The art piece measures 6.5 inches long by 6.5 inches wide (wingspan). The images are digital stamps from Smeared Ink. See my blog for more information about this paper crafted dangle.

Howdy, I've been inspired by this type of craft: http://observationdeck.io9.com/repurpose-your-empty-crystal-head-vodka-skull-bottle-1642204227/+charliejane I know there are many who sell completed type setups, but as I'm trying to save the money and would like to hang my personally emptied bottles I've done a lot of internet searching for over a week or so,without luck. I'd like to hang a bottle with a lamp in it, but the bottle has no threading to insert pipe fittings or whatnot, and I can't tell how the bottle was hung. Any ideas are appreciated, I'm going to continue to look. Thanks.

I have been trying to edit the opening image of my latest project, but when I start the Pixlr editor, the upload bar runs across to 100% without problem, but then stops at 100% and nothing else happens. The adverts run fine, though... Running in Firefox and Windows 8.

I read and enjoyed zoe_roses' bit on hanging tomato plants and DebH57's on soda bottle planters. I'd like to try these out.My trouble is that I live in an apartment complex that's pretty strict about ANYTHING we do to our small outside balcony space. I've been threatened with fines when using nails to hang plants outside before, and I think they'd blow a gasket if I hung a soda bottle full of dirt.I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas as to how I could make a hanger without making marks on any structure; essentially, something cheap and removable. Also, if anyone has any ideas how I could dress up the soda bottles (or use an alternate material) so that they look a little prettier, it would be deeply appreciated.Thanks!~Phillip

I have very limited space in my kitchen and leave my pots and pans on the stove when i'm not using them but they get in the way. I remember, in the old days, they had ways to hang them from the ceiling and could raise and lower them with a rope. Since I have limited space, I was thinking about a copper pipe mounted on a system where you could push a button to raise and lower the pipe along some sort of track mounted to the wall that holds the pipe out 12-18 inches away from the wall. (Almost like a wire rack shelf idea where the shelf would electronically move up and down.) I could then hang S hooks from the bar and hand the pots from the hooks and raise them up along the wall, out of the way until I need them and lower them without a pulley or getting a chair. I can usually manage to change a lightbulb all by myself but I am lost on this idea. Any inexpensive suggestions???

OK, I'm trying to search for an Instructable but I can't find it anywhere! I thought I had favorited it, but I guess not. Here's the description: A simple circuit made from a watch battery and and LED. One of the leads is a srping, with a feather hanging from it,. so when the wind blows, it moves the spring, connects the circuit, and the LED glows, like a firefly. Throw the whole thing in a jar and hang it in a tree, tada! I'm pretty sure it was featured within the last month or so, as I found it through an RSS feed. Any help? Thanks so much!

Every once in a while, I'll follow a link in I'bles -- to a forum topic, an Answer, a comment I received, whatever -- and the browser tab will simply hang. It'll sit there with the spinning dial for as long as I care to wait.I've deduced (from the nice cascade of "connecting to" messages at the bottom of Firefox) that this always and only happens with ads coming from doubleclick.net. I suspect those evil goons (they've been evil for about a decade now) are trying to acquire cookies, which I specifically disable. Their server (by design, presumably) continually requests cookies, hanging the user's interface, rather than properly failing out.My understanding is that I'bles doesn't (or didn't) accept advertising that required cookies. If that is still the case, could Staff take appropriate action on this matter? If not, just tell me and I'll turn on AdBlocking for anything from doubleclick.net.

In the new editor if you have a situation like the attached image where you create a label near the edge of the screen, when you click save it thinks you have clicked outside the image and moves to the next image instead of saving. The workaround is to save it further to the left and then drag it into position. Windows 8.1 update, Chrome Version 34.0.1847.131 m

I think this would be very popular in smaller rooms (or one in which you don't want a sagging clothesline running through your field of vision). I would like to hang a sturdy, pipe-like structure (so no sagging under light to medium weight) that I could pull down on a retractible cord/pipe/other to hang coat hangers of washed tee shirts to dry and then retract back up out of the way while drying or not in use. When I was a kid in the 60s we had a ceiling lamp above a table that worked like this; when you were working on something you could just pull it down (click click click) to however close to the table you wanted, then back up out of the way when you were done. This idea would be hung from 2 spots on the ceiling with some kind of mechanism that would allow for pull-down access and then push up storage; some type of pipe suitable for holding clothes hangers would be strung up at both ends and mounted to the ceiling. The "pipe" would then hang level when use at an accessible height, and the "push up" to hang level, closer to the ceiling. Ideally this would be not too heavy as I have smashed my dominant-hand wrist and have limited strength as a result. Help me Mr. Robots! Help!

I'm wanting to create a giant hanging light bulb lamp, similar to the ones I've uploaded, but I'm not really sure how I would go about doing it. I think I would make it out of plastic. So I would need to create a mold and then make two halves on a vacuum form, but I have no experience doing that. I'm not sure how I would make a mold of a giant light bulb, what materials to use and how to make it. I had thought about maybe cutting something out on a lathe but I don't have a lathe and it seems like it would have to be pretty big. I also thought about paper mache but I was afraid it might be too bumpy and light bulbs are smooth. Also once I have created the vacuum form plastic halves how I would attach them together with out having a large seam show.

This isn't even yet available in teh US, but it's pretty amazing looking i think.i'm thinking of how it can be made... cheap metal tubes for each led with 2 thin leads? or thin rods with a little insulated wire wraped around leading to the LED?i think this can be done smartly, cheaply and efficiently -- totally unlike how it will be sold in the us.who has experience with these materials and wants to mock one up?http://www.inhabitat.com/2008/05/13/kenzan-tsutakawa-chinn-constellation-lamp/

I was wondering if any of you had any advice for the front of a whole wall shelving unit I am planning on building (and the shelves as well if you have any suggestions). You see, although there is a cavity wall between this room and the next, I am wary of a noise complaint as it is a different flat’s bedroom. I will be using it as a music production room and ideally want decent acoustics as well as adding an extra these extra layers to stop leakage. (I’ll draw some pictures and upload them to clarify what I’m saying)* Two things I’ve been thinking about using: 1. A high-density curtain hanging in front of the whole unit. While this could possibly deal with the main issue of a noise complaint better than the next idea, I’m worried it will create a bad mixing environment with a really ‘dead’ wall behind my speakers. 2. Hanging, sliding acoustic panels using egg box foam under a sheet of fabric. This will look like a normal acoustic panel with the fabric pinned around a timber frame. I was thinking of forgoing using any sheet wood so I could hang a piece of high-density carpet/ fabric at the back and not have the panel too heavy. The wall measures about 3.2m W x 2.3m H so I was thinking of using three, maybe four hanging panels. It’s my understanding that a hanging panel would absorb more energy from the sound waves than one on wheels or in a sliding track. To hang the panels the main idea I had was to use metal tubing (uncertain as to what material to use, conduit?). With the three panels, I would use two main lengths of it one on the same height, parallel to the other, with the distance between needed to stop the panels on either track hitting each other. From above or below it would look a bit like this U=====U (sorry if this doesn’t translate to your device well… See pictures) with the ends of the U going into holes drilled into the wood, extending as far as the shelves will be deep if needed. With four I would just have two sets of the same but smaller. Sorry if this doesn’t make much sense, rushed off me feet at the moment. Many thanks Jay *Sorry the pictures ended up pretty awful, just moving in, need a proper table…

I am going to build an arm to hold a tv that will hang from the ceiling. It will be approximately 52" for pivot to CG. As I am a teacher it will be an old fashion heavy CRT (prolly around a 25" tv)rather than cool wazoo light weight flat screen. I am looking for an appropriate torsion spring to take it from hanging to pinned up against the ceiling. I know about garage door springs but can't figure a way to retemper the spring after I cut off a few coils and bend an end so I can use it. Any ideas you may have to come up with a spring (canabalized is fine) or a retempering process would be appreciated! Thanks! Mikey

I have access to loads of old basketballs and soccer balls that are always floating in the river by my house. (they get washed into the river from people's yards whenever it storms) They're usually fairly worn and dry-rotted from sitting in the sun but most of them still hold air. I was trying to think of some type of outdoors, maybe flowerbed/garden related, craft I could use them for. I'm looking for practical uses or even artistic uses. I've thought about cutting them in half and making hanging planters, but we don't really have any places to put hanging planters in my yard. If you have any ideas or inspiration, please do share. Thanks!

This is my invention for the day. Use of magnetic tool holders is a very old, but handy way to organize tools. My contribution to Magnetic Tool Holders is to use small, strong magnets (12 mm diameter) attached to a metal bar or in the photo, to my card table edge. That in itself is still not very significant. However HOW the tools are hung from the magnets is significant. The problem: If I put the magnets vertically and hang the tools vertically, the surface area of the magnet is such that often the attraction between the tool and the magnet causes the magnet to stay with the tool instead of with the table. A magnet sticking to the tool, can be very annoying. The solution: Placing the magnets horizontally--at the bottom--AND hanging the tools by their tips allows for very easy detachment and attachment. The magnetic force is strong enough to hold some very heavy tools, like the pliers or long nose pliers without any difficulty. The tools are easily removed and easily replaced. This would also apply to any magnetic strip. The key thought of the day: Hang tools from magnetic tool holders by their tips. Of course, another solution is to glue the magnets to the supporting bar--wood or metal--and clamp the supporting bar to the table. That works as well, but is more permanent and is a little more work. Also, if the magnets are allowed to attach by their full surface area to the tools, the tools are hard to remove.

Mixing Resin InstructableLet me know if that link works for you -- I pushed this earlier this morning.

There is a project I have been vigilantly searching for on instructables and google. I remember seeing it on here a couple of years ago and now cannot find it anywhere.. The project consisted of Industrial cage jar lights, LEDs, Vegetable oil, and a fish tank pump and some other supplies.. The LED lights would be submerged in the jars with vegetable oil and the fish tank pump supplies air into the industrial lights and the oil bubbles.. I would love to find this project. I have been itching to find it for the past year or so. If anyone knows where to find this project, Please pm me.. I would appreciate it immensely.. Or if anyone knows where to find the Industrial cage lights i would appreciate any help in this matter.. Thanks..

I inherited an awesome orange&brown 70's "painting" of the bay bridge complete with christmas-bulb sized lights set through it from behind to illuminate the top of the bridge and one of the boats passing underneath. The cord for the lights extends about 12" below the painting--it appears it was designed to be put over a wall socket (who hangs paintings at ankle height?). No wall sockets on the side of apartment hallway where I want to hang this anyway, so I am contemplating making a battery pack to light it up in the evening. I need an electronics refresher--how can I determine what type/size of batteries would be necessary? What other considerations should I keep in mind? Will post a picture when I return home. Thanks in advance!

I have Photodraw 2000 on my computer from several years ago - I copied it onto my newer computer and I use it all the time to add text, borders or effects and to correct old photos or erase backgrounds. I use my photos for various purposes, for teaching and family use, so it's good to be able to do lots of things with the photos in just one simple program I love Photodraw- it has so many uses and is easy to use. I never got the hang of using layers as in paint.net (which I've tried ) and Photoshop (which seems so expensive and complex). Does anyone else still use Photodraw or am I hanging on to a dinosaur here?

I recently bought a 50s house and there is no light fixture for the living room or the den and the venting makes it difficult for someone to come in and install wiring. So... does anyone have a good DIY lighting idea where I could hang a big light and run the cord along the ceiling/wall to plug it in?
