Other uses for Second Life?

In an instructable I recently published (How to pick up women online), I have discussed how to make use of Second Life in order to beat Approach Anxiety, to perfect some pickup techniques, and to improve conversation. I know of a few second life players who have made use of the game in order to overcome their fears, insecurities and phobias, and to widen their horizons. It seems to me 3D virtual worlds offer a tremendous opportunity to acquire real life skills (for instance I also know people who have used second life to perfect a language). I was wondering if anyone could think of similar uses for second life, and ideas on how to implement them.

"The meaning of life and reasons of living. "

They are just four letters L-I-F-E...Based on just these letters,is life that short indeed? No...it is just a short word ,but the meaning of it is not that short,moreover it's quite long. Can someone tell me what does life mean? I think i know,or at least i will try to explain as i see it and as far as  i have experienced it till now. Everyone says that life is short...but do you know anything else that lasts longer than this? Actually,life is the longest experience full of most unknown surprises that  we find ourselves in while we are breathing. Its the longest experience we are part of without having the chance of taking or leaving it.  Life is the hardest exam and the only one in which you can not cheat even if you try.  It is the theater we all are actors of,where everything happens in front of our eyes,around us and most of times suddenly it takes our breath away. Breathing does not mean we are leaving a life. Breathing helps us understand and realize that we all have reasons that keep us alive day by day. Do i have reasons?! Of course, i do! I do have my own reasons for still breathing. It is maybe only one,maybe one hundred,maybe more or less than this. I  do not  really know how many reasons i have,but it does not matter. I may not see these reasons,but sometimes i do feel what i am still breathing for. I can feel why i am looking up at the stars every night. I can feel the reason i am walking on the streets every day. Everything that happens has a specific reason. My most important one is love. That is the love i have for my life i am living and for everyone who is part of my world. I see it as the stongest feeling that makes you live in Earth touching the sky. Another reason of living my life is hope. The hope for a better day,and for a successful future makes me breath deeply. The belief of having a power to  make  a difference even if someone do not and will not  understand me keeps me alive. The beauty of life makes me wake up happily every morning and enjoy the new day that comes. My stubbornness makes  me fight for everything i want each day. I am enjoying every moment of my life. I am still breathing because i do not feel lonely,but that does not mean my life is depended on anyone's . Nobody's perfect,we all make mistakes,but not everyone regrets. That happens just because some people still think about how much fun they had while  making  the mistake. I am open to anyone that gives me advice,but as i do not judge anyone for anything they have done ,i do not want to be judged also. It is me and that is my life and i have my own reasons for everything i do. While most of people will be commenting on my desicions about my life,i will be waving them from the stars.....

What calms you down?

These are things in life which you don't do with an intention to help calm you down, yet they have a calming effect on you. For example I water my plants and it is very calming to me. Someone mentioned weaving or crocheting is very calming for them. Please share your thoughts.

Ever saved a guys life??

Well have you? I did write a big long thing about the four times I have, but me computer crashed so I can't be arsed to type it out again. Anyway the other day at work, I'm a bin man(garbage man)by the way, me and another crewmen were working on the back of the dust cart when my bin came back down so I turned to put it back on the curb, as I did my mate still had his back to the traffic, I saw a big nasty van screeching towards us, so I grabbed him by his neck/face and dived on the grass verge, narrowly missing getting squashed to death by two pieces of machinery, which smashed together quite horrifically. Theirs no doubt that if I was stood were I was I wouldn't be typing this now. Anyone else had something like this? I had a load of pyro stories but as I said I can't be arsed to type um out again.

I wanted to know if this is poetry or not. God save me Save my life, Or let me die Let me feel the warm embrace of your arms Let me know you are their Take away my pain Take away my sorrow Let me find happiness Let me find peace Give me the strength to live on, To fight and overcome my burden Let me learn, To let go Let me find some good in this world, So I may be happy You are my lord, Christ is my savior Lend me your strength, For now I need you now more than ever In these times of sorrow, I hold out my hand for you I can only hope you will reach out to me If not live in peace, then let me stand by your side, In the land of the heavens Show me the light of happiness, So I may continue to live Lend me your strength, Let me learn, Let me be at peace By: Woatspers

Emotional Whipsaw Just a personal Blog type post.

This post serves no purpose but to allow me to verbalize my last week, read at your own peril. Man what a strange 10 days it's been. Ten days ago I was going into final with a statistical fail in both my classes. If you're not familiar with grading practices in grad school, a C is a fail. If your GPA drops below 3.0 you lose your eligibility for financial aid, if you get more than two C's you're out of the program. Finals didn't feel like they went well. You can imagine how I felt waiting for grades, here I was, no job, looking like I was going to flunk out. Well, grades came out Thursday, I got B's, not brilliant, but it keeps me in school. That felt pretty good. Friday, I took my wife and her coworker lunch, something I do once a month just for fun.  At least this time I could deflect questions about the eternal job hunt with talk about grades. Got home from lunch and the phone rings......... " Mr.Animal, after a review of the applicants, we consider you the best candidate for the position of..... at....... and you like to extend an offer of employment." Woot! I'm on top of the world, nothing could bring me down.... Except... Except, My wife's dog looks funny, she's all hunched up and whimpering.  I've had enough animals to know that means a back injury.  It's 5, I call the vet, we discuss the maximum I can dope her up and make an appointment for the morning. Except, it's pretty clear by 8pm that she's in so much pain, that she can't even sit or lay down. Have you ever spent 12 hours trying to support the weight of a 60 lb dog? It's a novel experience, by 4 am I was near delirious. After an eternity, morning came. Doc diagnoses a slipped disk. Shoots her full of morphine and gives us a prescription for valium.  She can actually lay down when we get home.  36 hour she's much improved, but has a long way to go. TL;DR Passed classes got job dog sick

Day in the life of ...Instructable staff

In contests I often see projects from Instructables' staff. So they are actively participating in the maker scene. But I what else are you guys doing ? A job at a site like instructables must be something like "do what you like and you'll never work one single day in your life", isn't it ? What happens behind this html site in real life ? Wired coffee serving robots swarming around ? People in mad scientists lab coats ? Would like to know that :)

New life, recycled everything

Here soon, I will be out of the military. With that being said, I have no furniture (army supplies everything for us in the barracks). I am looking to build some, if not all of the furniture I will need out of recyclable materials. Now, what I would like is some is some ideas from you  all from instructables on what I should build to furnish my new place. I am also low on funds, so please nothing expensive, mostly stuff I can find anywhere. Thanks!

How to get an audience on your blog?

I'm trying to create a blog like lifehacker but which also features articles like this site and hackaday.com... etc. My problem is attracting a targeted audience. Perhaps by posting this I'm making a positive step forward and I'm aware that my blog is nothing new. I am trying to do something different though by posting links or making stories that are relevant to life, easy to create or help in some way. I've gotten the inspiration to 'copy' after typing on a laptop I repaired that was quoted at $800 originally but ended up with a total cost of $1.93. There's an easier and cheaper way of doing things and if someone is doing that, I want to post it as well.

Want to feel *really* small and insignificant?

Maybe you have heard of the "Tree of Life"? It's an old idea, with the first version being sketched by Darwin. There's a new (ish) one out.  I saw rough copies last year, but the reference pages of Dawkin's latest book led me to this web page. The image of the Tree there is, officially, "simplified", but still contains 3000 species, so it has a convenient "you are here" marker (second image, plus PDF file). Apparently, to see it properly, you have to print it out at a size of four and a half feet or more... The tattoo is on the back of Clare D'Alberto, who is working on her Ph.D. in biology at the University of Melbourne, but I'd love to see what the Makers here could do with the original image?

Hello, everybody.  I've gotta keep this message brief for now, but suffice it to say: I am very much alive and well.  I have sort of dropped K'nex as a hobby but this will not be one of those 'I'm done with K'nexing forever' posts, because nobody ever really is.  If you'd like me to help and collaborate, I am totally open to busting out the K'nex again.  I'll probably message some of you guys to say hello again pretty shortly, but right now, I've got a few things to do before I can do so.  Sorry about that long bout of inactivity... I'm currently working on digital art (animation, stills, and everything abstract) and you can find my most recent work at the following sites (If anyone's interested): darkowlartifice.tumblr.com (the final products) and ondrewstuffpreview.tumblr.com (works in progress; the password is 'egg.')

Why I'm not around much for now etc.

Now things have taken a big turn for the something, maybe worse maybe better, anyway I got put out of my house, the fight has been resolved and I'll bore you with details some other time because I'm writing on an iPhone at the moment, my brothers or touch even... Where I'm living at the moment has no Internet and the Internet in my tech is also broken. I'm not sure when ill be back online for now the neighbours internet is my main hope but it's not a good one. The place I'm living is the house from my ible, how to deck a house out for nought. I'm still witting smoking and still working away at tech though. Stuffs a bit difficult at the moment but I will eventually have some good ibles from all the stuff I'm up to. I'll try to get on as much as i can when I can but I can still be contacted via bebo and email My emails killerjackalope at hotmail.co.uk and my bebos adamkelly401 I have those things on my mobile so it helps a bit. Yeah, oddly it's all hitthd fan right after my whole lives getting better topic... If you have different usernames for email or bebo then do tell me your ibles name so I know.

Serious Notice guys n gals concerning me.......

Hey, just wanted to let you all know (so, maybe I put this in the wrong forum) that I am up this early in the morning ( 6:30 am ) because I have to go to the hospital for a complete cardiac / pulmonary workup and battery of tests. Yeah, getting older stinks, especially if you let you physically self atrophy. Anyway, just wanted you all to know, in case you don't see me for a few days or longer (the tests only last about 4 hours or so, but they could potentially bring on cardiac arrest, or trigger a severe asthma attack, depending on the kind of shape I am in ( it is kind of a pregnant pear shape actually ). See you all when I am back from the hospital....Addendum: I have a lowered amount of blood flow to my heart. What this means is that I am a borderline heart attack candidate if it gets any worse. Cholesterol was a little high, triglycerides way high. I will find out details on Friday I suppose when we discuss options...Addendum 2: The pulmonary tests ( 05/21/2008 ) were horrible, but there doesn't seem to be anything overly wrong that is obvious to the tech, with my lungs.....will have to wait for the doc's report thoughAddendum 3: Well, I am afraid things have progressed to the next step... I have to have a heart cauterization to see what may be blocking the lower artery, and how bad the blockage is. If not too bad, they will simply do a quick angioplasty and open it up, but if bad, I will then be scheduled for a bypass. *sigh* as we age the fun just never ends, eh ? Addendum 4: It will not be THIS coming week, but most likely next week, they will do the double bypass. Because of the location of the blockage at a major branch which would end up cutting off flow to the other artery, they have decided I best have the bypass done. PS: there was hardly ANY pain in the cath procedure.....I am going to give the person that told me that a hard time next time I see them :-) But I have experienced broken bones already, so I know the next step is not going go be a picnic. Addendum 5:I may be able to get the bypass done as early as Monday the 9th Yay ! Addendum 6:I am now into my second week of recovery, and things are progressing so well, my wife is afraid I will want to go back to work early and she will be alone again.

Battery life indicator for 1.5V battery source

Hi guys, I want to make a simple battery life indicator for a device running from a 1.5V battery source. I would just need a red/green LED to light when the Voltage is above a certain limit (say 1.2 V). and to turn off once the limit is reached.. Is there any simple circuit that enables me to do this?

Battery life indicator for Arduino powered fish feeder

Hi all, So I am basically a noob in electronics and a 1st time arduino user for my project. I need to do an automatic fish feeder and this is what I have in mind: I'm gonna use an arduino UNO R3 to connect it to these following components: - a 16 x 2 LCD Display (connected to RTC chip) - a small DC motor - 2 pushbuttons So these are the main components and I need the arduino to be portable ( So has to be battery powered - Maybe a 9V batt) As such I have 2 questions: 1) Is it possible for ALL the components to run using power from arduino? 2) I need to add a battery life indicator as well.. how do I go abt doing it? Hope you guys could help me

Hey Ibles! Help me choose what to study!

There comes a time in every Keith's  life where he must stop being a Keith-Kid and become a Keith-Man. Yes, soon I shall end my highschool life and embark on the journey to adulthood. Problem is...I...kinda have no idea what to study. The only thing I can really say I enjoy doin is....well...i dunno. I'm kiiinda good with computers....and ...well I guess my talents fall into the Art category. I enjoy drawing, (even though I havent drawn in over a year...that might be an obstacle...) I could maybe envision myself being a graphic artist, I dont know I could picture myself animating a commercial or stuff...I don't really know how it all works... I have some experience in video and photo editing. No programing experience, aside from knowing the definition of HTML (no points for that? come on...) So...basically.... Can you guys suggest what I should study? Also, over here in my tiny little island, there isn't much for Graphic Design....Theres ONE school, but i dunno all I see there are emo peoples and...i dunno...I cant say I like it very much.. SO YEA! Suggestions! Help a Keith out will ya? T_T

Why do some people have bellybuttons that are apparently stuffed with skin, while some people have bellybuttons that are, for the most part, hollow?

This is a question that has been on my mind for around three years. I have a hollow bellybutton, but when I go swimming with my friends I notice that some of them have bellybuttons that appear to be stuffed with skin and are not at the least bit hollow. Why is that? Thanks in advance.

Bringing old LCD screens back to life

When it comes to school projects, I always use my electrical knowledge to engineer some sort of out-of-the-box project. Being a freshman in highschool, most people are sort of amazed by my works. It's all basic stuff, really. I've been doing a lot of work with :EDs inside of these homemade posterboard boxes I've been making. After making one for each class, they're getting really old and they aren't too great looking. So I'd like to really give people a show. About two months ago, I got a 12 inch LCD screen from an old Compaq laptop. For reference, the screen (on the back casing) reads, "LCD MODULE AL LM-JK53-22NTR 10D40092527904". I cannot find many references to a pin-layout or a datasheet, but that's not too much of a problem. If it comes down to it, I will test each pin until I can get some progress. I am interested in using the screen to display data. I don't mind if colors aren't present other then black and white. Black and white works for my purposes. Is it possible to use this with an Arduino? With my initial research, I found that using a VGA card with a VESA Feature Connector will enable me to get the job done. I then run into two problems: 1) I cannot find one of these connectors, and 2) I am unsure if I could even make this work with an Arduino Uno. Any help is appreciated. If the project isn't possible, it's not the end of the world for me. By senior year, I probably will have built a full computer anyway :P ~Joe B.

How long with this power a led

I have an idea for a nightlight for kids or even adults in the hallway or something.  But I am running into a problem.  The main housing for this light is going to be pretty small.  I was first planing on running this off a household electrical plug and that would work best.  But I would not know quite how to step down the power from the wall to only run 2-3 led lights.  I am sure I could get some sort of small circuit board that would drop the current.  However because of the small housing I doubt I could fit that in there.  I know I am not giving a whole lot of details but I do not want to give away my idea quite yet.  What I am wondering is how long would say 1 AA battery run 3 LED lights?  I am thinking this idea is not going to work out because people are not going to want to have to replace there battery every week or even more.  So if anyone has some input on this idea then please let me know.  The housing I think I would have to work with would be something like a pipe that is maybe 1 inch across the opening by about 2 -3 inches long.  So nut much room to work with at all. I await your replies.

Me asking for girl advice, who wouda thought eh?

I'm not one to ask forumers for girl advice because normally everyone gives "hollywood" advice, but I'm in a jam and don't know who else to ask. I have a girlfriend, believe it or not and Christmas is coming fast. I have nothing for her and no solid ideas. I have a couple really good ideas but I can't pull them off. she asked me for a blender, she seems really serious about it but obviously I can't wake up Xmas morning and feel good about a blender....... covering my bases I got one just so she can't be pissed I didn't get her one...... but I need a main gift. Also, her birthday is on the 28th of December.....this is the first gift giving occasion I have been with her and I have 2 in a row....... infact this is the first time in a good 5 years I cared enough about a girl not to break up with her before a holiday just to avoid gift giving (ya, I know....I'm a prick) my other problem is this........ after only knowing me for about a month my birthday came along........ she went out and tracked down my most prized possession that I foolishly pawned as a teenager.......I had to pay my rent ....... i was 18 and pawning my 5 string Gibson epiphone reverse headstock bass was my only option. she found it in a different pawn shop in town and paid quite a lot of money for it.......... for a guess....... I got a little over $500 for it when I pawned it....... and pawnshops usually double or triple the price tag in there store........ my guess is she paid close to a grand for it. for Christmas she got me concert tickets, a remote control helicopter and something else I don't know about. also for valentines day she bought executive box seats for a licolin park concert (she had to tell me about the concerts so I could take the time off work....) I am not a rich man...... I make a few bucks........ but I'm not loaded........... I have no clue what to get her. some of the ideas I did have were: 1. redo her condo...... paint fix stuff up ...... kinda extreme makeover but not so extreme....... this is something I know would make her happy but I have no idea how to get her out of her condo for 2 days without her knowing whats gong on. 2. book a cruise or all expenses paid vacation........ but like I said I'm not a rich man.......so I'll have to like.....put a down payment on it and then like....... give her the receipt for x-mas and go like 6 months later........ but I don't know if thats stupid or what? the only other thing I can think of is like.......... random junk like the blender and maybe some other crap so she has a few things to open on christmas that she likes and or needs and then take her out for dinner for her B-day and give her a diamond necklace........ but I hate buying jewelry for chicks. I must get 2 separate gifts for her because in conversation she has mentioned how people give her stuff and are like happy b-day / x-mas and she hates it......she also hates b-day presents wrapped in x-mas paper. I know she'd be happy if I gave her a pack of gum from the corner store......she's not materialistic or high maintenance........ but I feel like I have to do something nice and special for her? any idea's? keeping in mind I'm not a rich man

Modeling 2D Life-Size Files on the Computer

Hey community! I have a slight dilemma! So say I want to make my own laser cut frame, and I have paper designs, how do I transfer my paper designs to a computer? What (free :) program can I use to make a lifesize model? Like for instance, if I have a 4x4" square in the program when I send it to print after it's printed it's exactly 4x4". Also, do I need to do anything extra for sending it to a laser cutter? Will Adobe Illustrator work? Thanks!

Introduce Yourself

Well, now we have a suitable place to do this... let everyone know who you are, school?, job?, future plans, etc... My Name is Paul - I'm a Mechanical Engineering student (third year) and I go to school at the University of Central Florida (UCF) in Orlando. I currently don't have a job (other than little things around campus) - but I'm looking for an internship or even better an externship. As for the future -- I really don't want to work for someone else after I graduate. I don't know how that's going to work out just yet - so I continue to network...
