What can duct tape not do?

Sorry. This has nothing to do with instructables, but here is what someone I know said: "I heard this yesterday on the fourth of July. 'and I'm proud to be an American where at least I know I'm free' What is wrong with that?" Someone I know asked me that question and I do not know. They said it had nothing to do with punctuation or capitalization. I will tell everyone later (if that person will give me the answer).

Http://twelvesouth.com/products/bookbook/ I am attempting to make this laptop case. But I've run into a few troubles. -What would be the best glue for vinyl fabric to wood. -What's the best way to attach the zipper so that it is strong enough to last. (I'm trying not to use exposed rivets, bolts, etc..) Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am new to programing and was wondering if there is any way to read the code off a PIC chip without damaging it or if you plug it into a programmer will it destroy the data on the chip. Sorry if this is a stupid question any help would be most appreciated

When you set someone as a collaboration, why doesnt it add that instructable in that member's member page? They helped with making it, so shouldnt they be seen as a co-author and show up as one of their instructables as well? If not, can we get a co-author option for this sort of thing?

This one's been on my mind for a quite a while now, just wanted to know what y'all think.Would you want to be a leader if no one followed you?I would. If people don't want to follow me, that's their decision. My decision is to do what's best for me.What say you?

I entered a question about if a wired detonator with a 9 volt that is linked to steel wool would burn hot enough/long enought o ingite either aerosol or blackpowder for projects i mess with and it never appeared and idk why. Basicaly my question was..would a 9 volt with 1 wire to each terminal with aligator clip on each wire with a peice of steel wool clipped into each 1 burn hot enough and long enough to ignite aerosol or gunpowder. Idk why my question is missing and im really hoping for a quick answer on my problem and question.

Can you guys take a quick look at the instructions for my Intervention, M4, and F2000 and tell me which you like best? They each have a different background, and I want to know which you guys prefer. The Intervention is on hardwood, the M4 is on carpet, and the F2000 is on a rug. Thanks

Well, upon my wonderings today i came across this, a short story by Isaac Asimov.The Last QuestionFor a short story, (about 20min - 1 hour read) i found it was pretty good. Most of us are familiar with Isaac Asimov for his three robotic laws. For any sci-fi fan, this is a must read. Im now looking into some more of his writings.

This is a hypothetical electrical circuit question, I'll try to clarify as best as possible. If you had a circuit hooked up to a light bulb, but controlling a the light bulb were two sensors wired into the circuit. One sensor turned the bulb on when there was no light, and the other turned it off when there was light. I'm not sure if that would be all one sensor, but garden lights work somewhat like that. Anyway, what if the sensors were mounted directly in front of the light bulb, facing it, so they worked based on its light. What would happen when you turned it on? Would it act like a strobe light or just explode, and would the effect be different with LED's? Also, would you need to put some other mechanism in to slow the sensor's signals?

So, I have a question... So, I decided to make a new, superflat, creative mode, world. But when I spawned, It spawned me in a snowy forest. I flew up just above the trees, and started flying forward. I passed a small desert, some rolling plains, and then another snowy forest. As I kept flying I saw an abrupt hault in the forest. I stopped flying and walked to the place where everything stopped appearing. Then as I looked down, I was really on a giant cliff- Going in a perfectly straight down drop. I flew one way down the massive wall, and there was a corner, I followed another wall-And then found a corner, and reapeting this process twice more, I ended up in the same spot I was in before. It was a giant cube, sitting on top of a superflat world. With normal biomes, caves just stopping at the edge, and water and lava flowing from it. So my question is: Has anyone had this happen before? And if so, what is it? (If my description is unclear, see picture.)

I need help on this question, it come sup often in one form or another in mathcounts, so I need to know how to solve it There are 5 letters, 3 of each, take out 10. AAA, BBB, CCC, DDD, EEE. You do not replace letters after taking one out, and order does matter. How many ways to arrange the letters are there?

If I have a 3.6 volt battery should I use a 180 ohm resistor to get 20 mA to a 3.6 volt LED? I got that answer from 3.6 = (180)(0.02)I'm asking this because online LED calculators disagree with me and say to use no resistor. also the battery might output 4.5 volts when extremeley fully charged, so I want the LED to have protection of not blowing out.

"Don't believe everything you read on the internet" - Abraham Lincoln Such wise words I should have heeded. Anyhow I have my MCP2210 wired up correctly now, the computer recognizes it, configured using the MCP2210 Utility and the GPIO pins have been tested and work through the SPI Terminal that I downloaded for another product related to this from Microchip. The question I have now is how much farther can I take this? I started with this IC because I know (some) Arduinos use an FT232 USB to UART chip to connect USB to the Atmel chip they use. I recall most Atmel MCUs can be programmed using SPI, so I figured I would try this out. I also hoped this would delve into software so I could teach myself a bit about that as I am more familiar with hardware and building circuits. If everything worked out I wanted to use these with an MCU so I could make myself custom small USB programmable boards for projects. So would it be possible to program an ATTiny or ATMega through this using Atmel Studio 7.0? What am I missing if it can be done? What should I be researching next? Anything to point me in the right direction is appreciated. If this is not feasible, alright, what other applications would these chips as I have a few more of them?

Am I the only one that thinks there should be a way to purge all of the old questions that haven't been marked as answered? I like to peruse the Questions section of the site to see what is on other user's minds and how their questions have been answered by the community. However, I did this today for the first time in a while and noticed a LOT of questions that had been answered fairly well but the user that originally asked the question never flagged it as answered. Is there, could there be, should there be a method to purge or close all of these unanswered questions? Maybe at least offer a peer review system for voting on the best of available answers, similar to what other forums have? Thoughts?

A couple of times, I have tried to delete a question, and I will find out later that somebody had replied to it (and it will still appear in the QA section). My operating system is Windows 7, browser is Firefox (I think it is the second latest version; I am not positive). Thank you!

Silly question. Trying to build something that requires an arduino to take a temperature measurement, and pwm an Item dependant on that temp reading. so the question is how many reads and adjustments per second can I aim for? I was hoping to get the 1 MHz area but am assuming less than that at this time

Hi! I have some questions about getting the free 3d prints: Must the instructable be 3d related? Is shipping to Norway ok? Do i get to choose the print myself, or do i get something random? (If i get to choose the print myself, do you need a drawing, or can I just explain it?)

I didn't see a Feedback category, so if this isn't in the right place, please move it. In Q and A, the line is "Don't be shy.....ask it." OK. And we've all heard that there are no stupid questions, right? But if ibles is trying to encourage honest (non-troll) questions, rating a question as "Worthless" has the opposite effect. Maybe the question has limited interest. Maybe few people view it. Maybe fewer people answer. These are neutral characteristics, and perhaps they are criterion by which someone judges the questions. To call a question "Worthless", however, is a real slap down and not in keeping with the idea of "be nice". I see that my questions are sometimes rated "Worthless," and, yeah, I feel bad when I see that. ( Maybe I'm too dumb for ibles? Maybe I don't measure up to ible standards? Maybe I'm not really welcome here??) I ask questions because I want answers, and this community is full of helpful people who have useful experience and good ideas. Despite the worthless ratings, I'm getting useful answers from the community and intend to keep asking. If only authors can see the ratings, is the intent to berate us into asking better questions? Constructive criticism might be more effective. If everyone can see the ratings, is the intent to guide readers away from "worthless" questions or to shame the authors into going away?
