Several questions

1) My 'ible is suddenly getting several hit a minute. With a past 'ible, a similar thing happened, and I looked at the stats, and determined that it was because A) My 'ible was featured/popular and B) my 'ible had been linked to on a high-traffic site. This is not the case with this 'ible, as far as I can tell. My 'ible is the "Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day" one. 2) Please explain the "stats" "referrers" for me. How are they ranked/chosen/listed? 3) I am getting a lot of referrers with addresses like this one: by114w.bay114.mail.live.com. What is this? 4) I am not very computer savvy, please humor me. I am not complaining about the huge jump in hits, I am just looking for an explanation.

Does Instructables.com track where their traffic is coming from?

One of my instructables has received several hundred hits just today.  It usually gets about 20-30 hits per day.  Is there a way to tell where the traffic is coming from? Thank you, Annabelle

How popular is this site now - is it as popular as it was?

I know this site used to be quite a hive of activity, however, would I be right in saying it is declining in popularity, ie instructables posted and volume of people viewing them? If so, where are people going instead? Any stats to prove or disprove?

This is what happens when you're on the frontpage

Here are graphs of the stats of two of my instructables. They clearly shows that being on the frontpage or featured in the weekly newsletter really gives you a boost.The Marble Clock (the graph with 0-5000 as the scale for pageviews) got in the frontpage as Popular in the afternoon the 14'th, you can clearly see the rate increase of pageviews.The Spooky Led Lamp (the graph with 0-10000 as the scale for pagevews) made it to the Weekly Newsletter sent to the subscribers in the eventing the 14'th. As can be seen on the graph the numbers of pageviews increased really fast at the next few hours then went back to the normal pace again. In contrast to what happened with the Marble Clock this instructable also got a real boost in the ratings due to the newsletter.Here's a link to the Instrugraph Instructable.

Bug? Instructable losing views.

One of my instructables, decided to lose 100 views or so on it's own on both the 'ible stat and my published page, for no apparent reason.  I only noticed as gmjhowe and I are in a views race so I've been paying particular attention to them but it's definitely and odd problem.

Ever been hit?

By a car? Besides when I've managed to run over myself, all of the times that I've been hit have been at intersections, obeying the lights. I got hit by a 50cc scooter once, too. That was less painful than hilarious. I think I got hurt less than the gal on the scooter. I had to help her pick it up and get it started again...I cross busy 4-lane streets in the middle of the block, rather than the light, for precisely that reason. Every time I've tried crossing Federal at the light, I've been hit or nearly hit by some cholo in a junker of a lowrider. Crossing the same street in the middle of the block, I've only had once close call, and that was my English teacher trying to be funny and just buzzing me.One of my friends got laid out in the crosswalk by someone who jumped the light a few miles from our school. She was in a bad way for a while, with multiple compound fractures.How about you? Ever been hit? How do you handle traffic and crossing?

I made this grenade in about uh 10 minutes ( about 5 of those minutes were looking for the pieces ) , anyway this grenade has a pin that you pull in order to work and it will only fire when it hits the ground or you hit the trigger by accident.

What happens when you hit a bicycle helmet with a sledgehammer - video and images

While cleaning up in preparation for another project, I found two old bike helmets. Both had small cracks (less then 1 inch long) in their Styrofoam, and so I had retired them as unsafe for biking (considering how much I've invested in my head), but hadn't managed to discard them yet. I cut out the webbing and plastic snaps, and decided to see what would happen if I hit them with a 12 pound sledgehammer. First, I hit the Scott square on the front-top: I mostly let the sledgehammer fall, and didn't really put much swing into. Seeing that it couldn't stand up to face of the hammer, I hit it with the side of the hammer, again mostly letting the hammer fall rather than really swinging it: Next, I hit the Bell Aquila with the side of the hammer: The Bell really did a remarkable job standing up to the hammer. The Styrofoam was completely cracked apart the first strike, but the shell managed to hold the pieces together through several beatings. The Scott was a much older helmet, and its shell had already, for the most, part broken apart from normal wear and UV damage (it started out white, not yellow).Obvious conclusions: If I'm going to get hit in the head with a sledgehammer, I'll choose a bike helmet even with cracked foam over nothing at all.

Need assistance in building 2 devices to help with fencing academy

In the sport of fencing, like many other sports, speed and reaction are very important to us.  There are currently no training devices out there that we use to measure speed and reaction in our sport. There are two devices we'd love to have and use, but none of us are technologically educated to know how to build any of these, and hopefully these are simple enough that someone might offer some solutions. Project/device 1: Reaction Measurement We would like to measure a fencer's reaction to a stimulus.  The fencer must hit a fixed target (like a pad) when a stimulus is presented, for example, a light.  When the light goes on, the fencer must hit the target with the weapon (more specifically, the point of the weapon) and a timer will tell the fencer how long it took between the time the light came on and when the fencer hit the target. Note:  Potential problem: durability of the pad getting hit numerous times. Project/device 2: Speed Measurement More importantly, we would also like to measure the time difference between when the fencer hits the target and when the fencer's front foot leaves the ground in a lunge.  Ideal device would be some kind of pressure plate in front of the target, beneath the fencer's front foot.  When the fencer lunges to hit the target, a timer will measure the time difference between the fencer's foot leaving the pressure plate and when the target is hit. Please let me know if these devices can be made, is it even easy to create something like this...remember...I'm not tech savy!

Massive Rubber Band Ball Destroys car

I was just surfing the interwebs and i found this video.Some guys drive to the top of a hill with a massive rubber band ball in the back of their van and then roll the ball down the hill hoping to hit the car, The ball bounces as it goes down the hill so the first time they roll it they only hit the back of the car, the second roll is a miss but the 3rd time they land it right in the side leading to a surprising amount of damage.Video is a bit bright to begin with but it gets better.Skip to 1:55 for the best hit.

How to get the old editor back, to fix bullets, and use backups

Ok, Now ive used it a bit I dont mind the new editor so much, but after it ate a whole page and then auto saved I was not happy!  This works in firefox  but not in chrome for some reason. Hit publish, then edit and it goes back to the old editor. you can then hit "more" and then "history" and go back to a previous version. so I got my page back...  You can also fix up those annoying gaps the new editor makes when hitting new line or bullets.

Hi, I have some instructables that was posted under one license by a team member (e.g. CC-BY-SA) and I want to re-licese (to "CC-BY"). I was trying to do the following: * go to the instructable in question * hit Author Options: Edit, * hit publish * change the license value to the desired one * hit save I got a message in the UI that "saved", but if I refresh on the page, or go back to the instructable in question, it still shows the original license, and nothing has actually been saved. Any idea? Tried both Firefox 39.0 and Chromium 44.0.2403.107, on Arch Linux 64-bit, without success (license cannot be changed). Tried for example  this, this, or this instructables.

Zombie RPG / D&D Style Game

For ZSDW: I've been in the zombie hype for awhile, (about a year ago,) and after finishing a couple of Zplans, I decide it would be fun to kill some zombies with dice and statistics. Alas, this is quite the beta, and it generally uses d6's, as well as some skewed grammar and stats. First things first. You are not a specified character. You have no character sheet, you have no special abilites. The following few paragraph will explain a few confusing things, and give hints on how your location will affect your game. Then, there will basic weapon stats. Later, there will be about how zombies affect you, and what kinds of zombies there are, and their health. You will also learn how you can scrounge for stuff from bodies.  Subdivide means to roll for what section it is applicable for. Say your about to go into a room, you would roll for SURVIVOR and ZACH Room check. Say you get a four(4). That means there is something in the room. You would then decide if it was locked. (Unnecessary, but for extra gameplay, most are going to be locked. Hit the lock with something, and roll for it's regular attack. If the attack is successful, you broke the lock. If not, well, you may have to literally blow up the door, or say that you cannot go into the room.) Let's say no lock for times sake. Now, you know something/someone is in there. Subdivide by rolling what it is. Second line of Survivor and Zach Room Check shows this. Luckily, you roll a one(1). That means a Military person is in the room. They can have Assault Rifles, Submachine Guns, Rifles with Scoped subclass, And Scatterguns with the Breacher Barrel subclass. You can only find them in Military bases, Start Variable Location:Warzone, or ALERTNESS Yellow or higher. When moving through a house, roll for room encounters. You may roll for how many rooms you must go through,( If I roll 5, I need to go through 5 rooms before getting out, or to destination around/in house) so you must roll for encounters/room searches while in those rooms.(You would roll 5 times in this case for People and Zach Room check rolls.)  In a house, you may roll for RUN, so 1-2 success, and go to the next room. 4-6, unsuccessful, roll for Scratch. (1-3 Scratched, 4-6 safe.)   ALERTNESS is just a guide for what zombies are available to kill. The ALERTNESS bar is unnecessary; however it adds another angle to the game. It is at the back of this guide.  Ideas, Tips and Otherwise: Tanks, APCs, Pickups, convenience stores, Molotov Cocktail, Improvised weapons, have some fun, and add to this game! Make up some weapons, apply variable splash damage, and just make sure you kill some Zach!   Your start variables should be placed on a separate sheet, for reference. Say for location you picked rainforest/jungle, (your geography, weather, and season fits that description.) you will need/want to roll for Scratches more. (For realism, generally, there will be more crawlers, same with Aristriked Urban.) Same for Urban, and Airstriked-Urban, (Broken buildings, rubble, etc.) or Warzone. (More military personnel. Tanks? Have some fun! :)  START VARIABLES (At the top of the game sheet.) Location: Geography: Weather: Season: # Zach's: Zach's Location: Population Density: Specialized Setting: Attack Rolls: Locks (Y/N): Scratch (Y/N): Alertness Level (Y/N): Supplies (Y/N): Leg Break (Y/N): Travel Days (Y/N):   Supplies is a form of food, ammunition, and other necessary items for a single day. Each survivor in your current group takes 1 supply per day. Supplies can be found by subdividing if your preceding ROOM SEARCH roll is 1-2. If Travel Days is active/applicable, your group takes only 4 supplies per day, individual people in your group do not take any supplies, and you cannot be attacked by Z's. Travel Days are good if you have more than 4 people in your group, and have low health, or need to get somewhere. BITES are fatal, you take 3 supplies when bitten, then the following day you become a Z. Your group can take your weapons. SCRATCH'S are non-fatal; you take 2 supplies for 3 days. (7supplies, because of the one you took the day you were bitten, then the 6 you will take for the following days.) For all melee attacks, roll for bone breaks. 1-2 break, 3-5 Scratched, 6 safe. Scratch disables RANGED and FIREARMS attacks. For disabled, or failed melee attacks, 1-2 = arms, or arm, 3-4 =legs, or leg, 5-6 = chest or neck break. A Neck Break Disable turns Zach melee attacks to 2 bitten, 1 and 3 scratched, 4-6 safe. Arms/Legs breaks decreases that zombies fighting ability to 2 bitten, 1 and 3 scratched, 4-5 safe, 6 breaks leg of human.  When a human has a leg broken, he/she takes two supplies per day, and halves the amount of current PTD. (Play Time per Day)   To determine the time a day takes to complete, roll for the PTD, or Play Time per Day. This is found by rolling a 6 sided dice, then multiplying the number on the dice by 3. This is approximately how long a "day" is in the ZRPG, in minutes. You will need a watch or timer to play this game, if you want to apply PTD.  FIREARMS Scattergun(Shotgun) = 1-3 hit, 4-6 miss, Melee 1-4 hit, 5-6 disabled. RANGE:3 This affects a maximum of 3 Zs. Roll for 1-2 1 Zach affected, 3-4 2 Zach affected, 5-6 3 Zach affected. Sub-Class: Breacher Barrel, 1-2 hit, instant death upon Z's, breaches locked doors/drywall (Apartments, this happens if you like to shoot stuff, or the lock you just suck at opening wont unlock,). Pistol = 1-4 hit, 5-6 miss. RANGE: 4 Melee 1-3 hit, 4-6 failed, if failed, roll for scratches, Z is disabled if successful hit. Subdivide for disable type. RANGE: 1 Sub-Class: Laser, 1-5 hit, 6 miss. RANGE: 5 Rifle = 1-4 hit, 5-6 miss. RANGE: 10 Melee 1-2 hit, instant kill, 3-5 disabled, 6 scratched. RANGE: 2 Sub-Class: Sighting-Laser, 1-4 hit, 5 miss, 6 disable. RANGE: 12.  Bayonet, see knife attack roll. Scope, 1-9 successful on 12 sided die. RANGE: 16 Assault Rifle = 1-4 hit, 5 miss, 6 instant kill or disable, you pick. RANGE: 14 Sub-Class: Grenade Launcher, 1-4, instant 4 Z's kill, when applicable. 5-6 miss Blows open walls/doors, when you fail  assault rifle as a prerequisite to use a grenade launcher. Sub-Machine gun: 1-4 hit, 5-6 miss. Has a three round burst, you can hit a Z 3 times, or 3 Z’s 1 time each, or any combination thereof. Sub-Class:   BLUNTS Crowbar = 1-4 hit, 5-6 miss. Sub-Class: N/A 2x4 = 1-4 hit, 5-6 miss. Sub-Class: Additional Spike/Nail 1-4 hit, 5-6 miss, roll for instant kill, or instant disable. Sheet Metal Tipped, instant disable 1-4, 5-6 miss. Bat = 2-5 hit, 1 and 6 miss. Sub-Class:Aluminum Bat, 1-3 and 6 hit, 4 bat bends (You cannot use the bat anymore)                                        5 miss, instant disable if hit is successful.                    Steel Bat 2-5 hit, 1 and 6 miss, instant kill if hit is true. Sledgehammer = 1-3 hit, 4-6 miss, roll for Scratch if hit is false, insant disable/kill, subdivide for odd/even. You cannot attack next round, but you can use a secondary. Sub-Class: Industrial size, 1-5 hit, 6 miss, instant kill, Scratch if miss. You can only use this once per battle, however at the cost of a Scratch, you may use it again.   SHARPS Axe = 1-2 hit, 3-6 miss, instant kill. You can only use this once per battle, however at the cost of a Scratch, you may use it again. Sub-Class:Double Sided axe, 1-3 hit, kills 2 Z's. You may use this twice on your turn, You can only use this once per battle, however at the cost of a Scratch, you may use it again. Hatchet = Melee, 1-4 hit, 5-6 miss, Thrown, 1-2 hit, 3-6 miss, if hit, roll = 1-3, disabled, 4-6 instant kill Sword = 1-3 hit, 4-6 miss. Instant disable, or roll for instant kill, 1 and 6 instant kill, 2-5 disable. Sub-Class: Knife =1-2 eye stab, instant kill. 3-4 disable. 5-6 miss. If miss, roll for 1-4 scratched, 5-6 bitten. Thrown 1-4 hit, instant disable. 5-6 miss. When you successfully instant kill or disable a zombie, you lose your knife. Sub-Class: Improvised weapon w/ rifle. 1-4 instant kill,  5-6 disable.   RANGED Bow and Arrow =1-3 hit, 5-4 disabled, 6 miss. Sub-Class: Bomb Arrows,1-4 instant death. Fire Arrows 1-4 hit, roll again, 1-3 immolates Z's, 4-6 damages torso. See Molotov Cocktail effects. Molotov Cocktail = 1-5 hit, 6 immolated, dies 3 days. Buildings burn 3 days. Sub-Class:Alcohol Bomb, 1-6 hit, no misses. 2 Alcohol Bombs kill a Z, 2 days. Starts building fire.   Room Search Rolls: WEAPON SEARCH: 1 = FIREARMS, Subdivide for type, pistols and scatters only 2-4 = SHARP, 5 = BLUNT,  6 = RANGED, no Crossbows/Archers Bow. ITEM SEARCH: 1-2 = Supplies, when applicable. This is probably CVS's Walgreens, SURVIVOR and ZACH ROOM CHECK: For a room check, use a d20.  1-4 Z-Encounter, 6-9 survivor, 10-15 nothing, 16-20 supplies. If you roll 16-20, roll a d6. You gain supplies equal to the number on the d6. For a zombie encounter, roll a d6 for number of Z's   AWARENESS LEVELS L. Green = Near None                                   Civilian Known Only Green = Slight                                                  Civilian Known Only, possible Police help. D. Green = LOW                                              Slight Media Coverup,                  L.Yellow = Less than medium                     More Media, Local Police Intervention Yellow = MEDIUM                                         Full Media, Government Denying D. Yellow = Less than HIGH                         Supressed Media By Government L. Orange = slightly less than HIGH         National Crisis Orange = HIGH                                              Class 4 Outbreak, Zero Government, nearly full world infected. Black = Finished game                                             The world is destroyed and there are zero humans left on earth. Zombies are the dominant species now. They will walk the earth, scrounging, trying to fill the hole that can never be filled. Good job, how could you let this happen?   Z's or Zach Types   These zombies are put where applicable. Normal Zachs, and Fat Zachs are found everywhere.   If you miss while attacking a Z, subdivide if they hit you. If you are hit by a Z, you become one in 1 day. You take 3 supplies for that day, if applicable. 1-4 Z bites you, 5 they Scratch you, 6 is miss.   Normal Zach’s = 1 hits to kill apply infection normally.(Found in AWARENESS level: Near none) Fat Zach’s = 2 hits to kill, lower bite rolls to 1 bitten, 2-6 safe.(Found in AWARENESS level: near none) Mil Zach’s = 4 hits with FIREARMS and RANGED, 3 hits melee. (Found in AWARENESS level: Less than medium) Martyrdom Zach’s = 2 hits to kill, only found in churches, monasteries, temples, etc. (You may pickup pistols and knives only from these. Subdivide, 1-4 none, 5 pistol, 6 knife) Quislings = 2 hits kill, if bitten, do NOT roll for infection! If you are hit by a Quisling, you use 2 supplies for 1 week. PD(Police)Zombies = 4 hits kill, You may pick up Pistols and Scatterguns from them Subdivide, 1-3 pistol, 4 none, 5-6 scattergun.

Constructing a realistic lasergame

I am making a laser game/tag system and I would like an IR detector/sensor that can tell the difference between a direct hit and a near hit fly by so that the "bullets"can still cause sounds on a near hit. The sensor should be as invisible as possible but should have a very clear and acurate detection. If there is no way I can make it work I will tweak the guns to be louder. Guns will have to hit over atleast 200 meters "For snipers". I know I need a double-convex lens but I just don't know wich LED I need. It would also help if next to a focused LED there is a way to send an infrared signal in all directions for just a while "For explosives". I have looked at ad hoc but no idea if it would work in there. For the suits I will most likely use sensors connected to a micro-controller/processor. Oh I forgot to mention that I am not using infrared lasers because they will most likely burn or damage the equipment.

When I log in after clicking an image, I DON'T want to be taken to the "welcome username!" page, I want to STAY on the page I was at so I can see the picture that I logged into see.  When I hit the back button on my browser to return to the actual Instructable, I go back to the not-logged in page.  Then I hit refresh, and THEN I can see the picture. Is it not possible to just stay on the same page??

Tab Order During Log in

Submitting my request to have the tab order changed on the log in page... Desired Interface: Enter my user name, press tab once, enter password, carriage return/enter - done. Currently, if I hit tab it moves the active field to "forgot user name" I just can't get myself to remember to hit tab twice as anywhere else I need to log in it's a single tab operation :p

There's high-speed photography, and there's high-speed photography...

High speed bullet photography is cool - the precision of catching the bullet flying through a carefully-placed target. But how about hitting a moving target?  How about hitting a single drop of water? Dutch photographer Alexander Augusteijn can do it, apparently using normal flashes, but with the timing controlled by computers. Lex Augusteijn Photography via PetaPixel

Peak Everything

According to TreeHugger, we're running out of 8 important resources. Oil is getting a lot of attention now, but get ready for other prices to go up as well.No matter how you look at it, the Earth is finite. There is only so much space and so much stuff on it. With more and more people wanting more and more things, we're bound to hit our limits. The question now is whether we've already hit them and, if not, why wait? Peak Everything

Road trip

I'd like to take a road trip across Canada or the USA and hit thrift shops and Junk Markets.  Has anyone ever done this?
