Reading Comments

When a person reads reviewer comments serially, over a period of time, the order 'newest-to-oldest' works well. But if a person reads a bunch of comments (often spanning a number of days) at once, it is much easier if the comments can be viewed 'oldest-to-newest'. Any chance of adding that option to the instructables page?

My Newest Instructable Insists That it Will Only View All Steps at Once

I made a new step-by-step in instructable, and it seems to insist that it all belongs on one page. ( )  I wonder if, perhaps, this might be a recent problem because my sister recently made her first instructable here and it did the same thing to hers.

Jameco's newest Puzzler

Ok guys n gals, I felt good enough this morning to wade through my email, and I found the latest Jameco Puzzler, just waiting for me. I puzzled over this for about 3 minutes, and then guessed and low and behold.......(see the figure below) So anyways, HERE is the puzzler, make a guess before looking at the answer :-)This is NOT a contest, have fun with it....for those that have electronics background, think about it for a bit, remember how an opamp works, and you should be able to get it right on the first guess. Above all though, have fun with it.

When I click on "You" then "Instructables", the whole page reloads. I'm trying to edit an unpublished instructable. Tried it in IE and it works, but the editor doesn't, so I still can't work on it. I'm using the newest version of FF, and Windows 7 Home premium. Any suggestions? Thanks!

It's been a long time since I've had either the newest or the "most powerful" computer in the household, so I feel like bragging a bit. Mac-Pro 8-core 2.8Ghz, 10G memory. It'll have about 2TB of disk (320+750+500+500) once I've moved things around...

Comments Functionality?

Your Comments Section really sucks. Actually, it's pretty much non-existent as far as I can tell? There is no way to follow up on comments you've made, (or even find them), there's no subscription, there's not even any kind of sort function. (Newest, Most Popular, Oldest). C'mon.. look at any random internet page, and they will have a more functional Comment engine. It shouldn't take much to improve this.

How to make a 737

Southwest has put out a video showing the construction of one of its newest Specialty Planes. It's all done in just 2 minutes, 30 seconds, too. It's like watching a kit being put together. Also love seeing the application of the paint job in a succession of masking and painting. Check it out and be sure to mute the soundtrack. via Core77

Small gun :D

Hey, so I came across these pictures of this gun I made a while ago that was a modified version of my "Newest Gun". This one isn't to different except its has a sliding trigger that is a lot more strong than the previous one. I basically made this to get rid of the trigger mech on the top which I think is pretty ugly, anyways hope you enjoy!

Embedding Instagram Video Into Instructable

I was creating an instructable yesterday for the newest "Burning Questions" contest, which encourages submission via instagram video and vine. The issue is, these video hosts are not supported by instructables' video embed function.  When attempting to enter the instagram embed code (OSX, both Chrome and Safari), the iframe placeholder will appear temporarily, but will disappear when the instructable is saved or when the user attempts to publish. Only when uploading the video to an approved host was I able to post a video sourced from instagram.

Question: Has anyone had any trouble concerning the PopUp ad on the Survey ?

Lately, when I sign in (under Fire Fox, newest upgrade) the Survey pops up and runs a script that makes it impossible for me to sign on (it keeps taking the FOCUS off the text input box). I have to cancel it, many times I have to cancel it 3 or more times to get it to go away. Is this just me, or have others gotten this also...?UPDATE: Here is a screen shot of the survey I mean...

Has anyone used the new Makerware 2.2.0?

Makerbot released the newest version of their Makerware last week. I haven't had a chance to play with it much.  There are some updates, but I've heard that some aren't so new (if you used skeinforge).   As cool as kitty-cat infill is, what do you guys think? Autodesk also released a 3D printing utility - on your 123D models page, click the "Fabricate" dropdown, then "3D Print at Home".  Give them a try!

Knex Turret Bow

Hello everyone, this is my newest gun. This is a turret bow, obviously. And I know that I will get comments about it, but yes I acknowledge that it looks like Zak's turret bow from 2009. Although it looks like his, I couldn't really get figure out the internals so I made my own(which work very well). I would like to post internals of this gun for people to build but wasn't sure if I should because of its similarity. Comment your questions, comments or anything else below regarding this.
