Internet filters suck. Here's why we should throw this sh*t away: - Most filters restrict LEGIT sites, like wikipedia, Youtube, Facebook, etc. - It slows your internet speed down somewhat. - The workarounds make your surfing experience way too slow. - Censorship in general sucks. - It takes away freedom, which is already gradually ebbing away.. - So people don't try and steal my iPhone to look up porn because the PC's are blocked. People should have common sense to just hit the X button if they stumble on content they find offensive.

Hello, For some reason, My pc will cut off internet to websites and such, while maintaining connection with things like Skype and certain parts of steam (e.g. Chat, games, etc, but not store, profile, anything website-based) and all I have to do is restart my PC, which is anoying, cause my pc starts up slow, and has a myriad of startup programs. Has anyone had this problem before, and fixed it? please help me out, I would be very thankful. Thanks in advance, Krayzi99

I was looking for an image of the old-old instructables homepage, but it looks like you block the internet archive:http://web.archive.org/web/20060615203859/https://www.instructables.com/Would it not be cool to have an archive of instructables?

Hi, This year my high school baseball team coach asked me to help televise the games for the local channel. He said that we have cameras and the only thing we need to broadcast the games live is the internet. The baseball diamond is around 200 yards away from the main school. There is no internet over there. So here are my options. (A) Put up a directional wifi antenna on the roof of the school, (B) Use a cell phone internet conection, (C) Set up a powerline network. Here is the problem with (A)- I don't know where to purchase a cheap antenna (less than $100) and a cable to the roof/ The Problem with (B) is that it would be very expensive and I don't think the internet would be fast enough. The Problem with (C) is that even if I were to set up a powerline network in the school the power out at the diamond is on a different breaker so it would not work. Do you have any suggestions for my problem? Where to get a cheap directional antennas? Thanks Joe

Really.Really. Big.So I was bored. So bored, in fact, that I decided to Google myself. I clicked the text box of my Google search bar and typed in Labot2001. Just to see what comes up, what web sites I've forgotten about, who spies on me, etc. It wasn't until I Googled myself that I realized how big the Internet actually was.For example, my mousetrap car showed up on MAKE. And about 50 million other places. Same with a handful of my other ibles. It's weird to think that the Internet just loops around, through, and under itself a million times. Sometimes without even realizing it.So try it. Google yourself. Share what you find.

This week I had cause to look-up The Lumberjack Song on YouTube. I found that it only took "lum" - just 3 characters - to get a link to exactly what I wanted (out of the entire content on the site). I wasn't that surprised, but 3 is few. (You can get ZZ-Top with one "z") Would some people please try thinking of something and seeing how many characters it takes? *I don't mean popping one letter in and picking something, I'm after a measure of how well the internet serves us-up what we want.

Hello, all. I have a coax (TV antenna) cable outside coming in the house and I'd like to connect a WIFI antenna ( either yagi, omni, cantenna) to it, instead of TV. I'd need an adapter (N to F?) for it. Now, once the antenna and cable are hooked up, what do I need to transmit the internet WIFI signal throughout the house? Modem, router, both,? I have a spare Linksys WRT54G router with Ethernet IN and OUT. IOW, what other gear would I need to have WIFI throughout the house? The WIFI would be used for laptops and desk comps. Thank you

I'm going to buy usb arduino board, some leds , breadboard and some other stuff and I would like to ask a couple of questions.(I've never bought a thing on internet :S )I chose http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=666The shipment payment when do I pay for it (does it sum up with the items, or do I pay in mail office)?(PS. I live in Lithuania) What does this mean : First Class Mail International Package $3.44 NOT TRACKED, NOT INSURED "NOT TRACKED, NOT INSURED"?and there's also International Economy (4-5 Days) $37.48which is really not attracting me because it would cost a lot (atleast it would for me ) and it would cost more then the item I'm buying.How long would it take to ship the items(2~3 weeks?)?Thanks for reading.Help would be really appreciated :)

So I recently thought up the idea that I can get free high speed internet at the computers at the public library in town (I can only get dial-up at my house). I have to ride my bike a few kilometers to get into town but I can get like 100 KB/s!! Gah, I wish I'd thought of this a long time ago. When I went in yesterday I just downloaded a bunch of crap. I got 60 MB of stuff, mostly podcasts, in about ten minutes. That would've taken me over five hours to get on my dial-up. But is there any thing else that I should try, other than just downloading a buttload of stuff? I've never had broadband, so I'm kinda just dumbfounded by the possibilities.

Hi everyone - this is my first post and I hope I am posting in the right place! I want to be able to detect when my PC loses internet connection and be able to signal an actuator to drive a motor. Does anyone know of any software that can do this on the PC itself or a standalone project that can be used to do this? thanks for reading!

I would like to build a project which can monitor the temperature and humidity in each one of my rooms in our house and at my daughters apartment. I would like to use a web page to monitor from anywhere. I know there are sensors which can do both. Each room has a computer and is connected to the Internet. So how do I begin?

So I just bought a new router, and everyone else in the household is able to connect to the internet. We set up the router on a different laptop from the one I use. I am unable to connect to the internet. I have tried running an instillation of the ASUS Wireless Router Utilities of the router with a disc that was in the box with the router. I have entered and re-entered the password several times. My computer has windows 7 (I believe), it is an IBM thinkpad The router is an ASUS the encryption is a WPA2 personal When the new router was set up, we changed the name from our previous internet name (that is what an employee of our internet provider told us to do) When I try to connect to the internet it says the connection failed with a red x by the words waiting for association. I use Access connections to connect to the internet. A window also pop-ups when the connection fails with the title ThinkVantage Access Connections. It says: "Unable to connect to teh selected wireless network. You may need to configure your sustem to support the authentication method that is in use. Contact your nework administrator." Please let me know if you need any other information. Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I hope you can help!

Yesterday I was able to print instruction pages with no trouble. Today, in both firefox and explorer, when I attempt to print I get a "encountered a problem and must shut down" message, and then I'm back to my desktop. I've tried on 2 different computers with the same result.

An article on the BBC is predicting that large swathes of internet content, starting with news websites, will soon vanish forever behind paywalls. Content that is free to users, funded by advertising, will (apparently) soon be a thing of the past: Rob Grimshaw, managing director of FT.com, says charging for online services is inevitable, as online advertising is unlikely to deliver sufficient returns. While it is still "swimming against the tide" to expect payment, he says it will be recognised soon that "the oddness has been to give it away". In the long term, he says not charging will come to be seen as the aberration - and he imagines future business students writing case studies of how publishers were wrong-footed. So, fellow-pros, do think (as I do) that we have got the model right, with free-to-access content, plus paid-for benefits?

I want to create, frame, and wall mount a simple screen which automatically refreshes via wifi every day with a new image taken offline. I envision a small screen on my wall that will automatically update with the new astronomy picture of the day (http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/astropix.html) or the wikipedia featured picture or whatever I want. It will showcase better artwork than anything I can buy and the image will never get old because it will always be changing. I have no idea how to go about creating this and really hope someone can help.

I noticed from when Eric made a post about internship in 2006, that many people have experience in scripting and such. But I also noticed how many people would like to learn, but all the big words keep them at an emotional distance.I was thinking that maybe some pros could de-mystify all them big terms for the people who might be interested in this. Mainly, Could people please post resources that could be useful to people who are interested in learning this. Or maybe some Instructables?I think that if you could simplify these to the very basics, for nth9 graders with very basic knowledge, they would have a great advantage in the future.Here are some resources I found could be very useful to complete beginners:W3School - Thanks to KitemanP.S. I Include myself in the group that wants to learn but is scared of all the big words

Hi. My computer "disconnects" from the internet every 15 - 30 minutes. But skype stays connected and my computer says that i am still connected. Iget connected again when I change my ip (with cmd, ipconfig /release, ipconfig /renew) but I disconnect again a little later. Is there a solution that is forever?

Am I missing something? Unusually, Instructables appears to be the only website working on the internet. Any other website I try to connect to except ibles just times out on me. BBC, Google (including groups and gmail), Notcot, Birdguides, Hotmail, XKCD, QuestionableContent... They all tell me that Firefox can't find the server. I've tried reloads, restarts. What next? Edit: as I've been typing this, ibles has been slow and won't upload a screenshot to go with this post. Edit: Trying with my laptop, I can't even get on ibles. (PC using Windows XP & Firefox, netbook using Linux and Firefox) Edit: multiple clearings of the cache and deletion of the entire browser history, plus a period of total shut-down of all associated hardware seems to have fixed the problem.

Hey everyone. I'm going to be gone for a week. My family is going up to northern Michigan and there isn't any internet up there. Just thought I would bring it up... it seems like a good discussion starter. *How often is everyone on instructables? *Do you have symptoms of withdrawal when you are away? (Just kidding... sorta. Lol) *Anything else!

A picture says a thousand words (to quote millions of other people :)) So the problem is is that in Internet explorer 8, when you go to edit your instructable (excuse my sad little attempt at an 'ible in the background, I wanted to try out the editor) The whole editor is greyed out, and a loading bar is displayed indefinitly (2 hours in) I have tryed reloading the page, and it is still greyed out. The obvious soulution would be to upgrade to Chrome or Firefox <3, but that is not possible :(
