Instructables doesn't show up in recently added or in search

Hello!  I added 2 instructables that are not showing up in Recently Added.  I tried to search for them as well (using the title) and nothing shows up.  The only way I can find them is by going through my own profile.  The other 2 instructables that I have posted showed up pretty quickly.  How long does it normally take?  Thank you!

How Do You Make a Slide Show Viewable?

Ok, I made a slide show and I published it. The problem is, the only way you can view it is if you go to my page and click on the picture. You can't just search it in the box and it'll come up on one of the pages. Example: You make a slide show called "Iron man haloween costume." If you search it in the box in the top right corner of the screen. It wont come up in the "search results." The only way you can view it is if you go to the authors account page and click on the image/link to it. End of example. Now how do you make it able to view if you search it in the box. Is it the license has to be a certain type or what do you have to do. Please help and reply with an answer. Many thanks, Chill88

Please help me produce my music show using my Dell Optiplex 755 multimedia desk top.

 I want to be able to plug my CD player,Cassette Deck and Turntable into the computer and have it all act as a radio station where I can introduce them...and have everything end up in an editing program for final easy finishing.  I currently use 'Audacity' for my editing, but it doesn't handle more then one sound source at a time, so if i'm talking into the mic. I can't simultaneously play a song along with it.  This makes it very hard to produce my 30 minute show because it takes about 3 hours to get it the way I want. Can anyone help me?...Thank you.

I've always given my art away. Now I'm ready to do a show but don't know how to price the paintings...

How do i determine the value of my work? I realize that makes me sound like a hack but I've just never had to put a price on anything. I've attached a detail from one of my paintings (it's only about a quarter of the work).

Need to make sure HEX file is correct that you have?

I am in the start of the build for the laser show and trying to get all my parts ordered. Is the HEX file that you have available to download correct? I can trouble shoot everything but the chip. I am downing this for a class project and don't want to get to a point where my hands are tied. I have spoken with Digikey and they are willing to program the chip as long as I have the correct HEX file to send them. Would you please email me at ?

Electron Club Open Day2pm-8pm Saturday 13th June 2009Centre for Contemporary Arts (CCA), 350 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, G2 3JDThe Electron Club is a voluntary run space where people interested in things like free open source software, circuit bending, hardware hacking, computer recycling, streaming, audio and video editing, green technologies, and amateur radio can meet, use equipment, and share anddisseminate their skills and ideas. The space supports both individuals developing their own projects and a number of group projects, all of which are not-for-profit initiatives with a community, educational or environmental aspect to them.Now in our third year, the Electron Club Open Days are an opportunity to see and try out a range of things that people do, as well as having the opportunity to meet others with similar interests, make, chat, discuss and enjoy.TESLA SOUL - Electron Club Makers Fair and homebaking - Bajery in the Makery!Stalls and demos by electronic makers, designers and artists. An opportunity to see and play with some of the projects created by Electron Club members and related groups - a theremin menagerie and mini synthesizer kits, 3D paper engineering, circuit bending, micro FM radio,DIY wind power technology, creative computer trash recycling, 101 things to do with a dead keyboard and much more. Plus some of the excellent home-baking that has been hallmark of all our Open Days. Come and do a bit of soldering or have a cup of tea and chat with the people who make things.TAPE-WIRE-HEAD-SCREEN - music, film and sound artsThe Electron Club includes many people working in music, film and experimental arts. For the Open Day we will be showing a preview of films from Document, the UK's leading human rights film festival, with works ranging from front-line reportage to cinematic explorations of what it is to be human, along with films made at the Electron Club by the Digital Desperados, a film-group for young black and Asian women.

From inner-city Boston to remote Indian villages, FabLabshave become a worldwide network of community technology centres. Glasgow FabLabs is a project aiming to bring such a centre to Glasgow. This forum will present the ideas behind the Glasgow FabLabs project and explore the benefits of community-access technology.Community Media and Citizens JournalismThe internet has offered a platform for communities and groups outside of the mainstream media to have a voice and share knowledge. Whilst there are many notable examples of such activity, the tools to create such a democratized media space are still often out of people's reach.This forum will look at some practical examples of community media coming from Glasgow, present some current projects looking to make ordinary people's voices more prominent and explore the relationships between the grass-roots and mainstream media.Technology, Social Justice and the EnvironmentHow can we use technology for the greater common good? Whilst the advance of technology promotes the promise of a better world, that promise has often been compromised or undermined in how we make use of such advances. Certain technological developments have contributed to environmental and social problems on a scale arguably never seen before.Technology, however, has also been used to tackle such issues as climate change and social injustice. This forum will share and explore some practical examples being used in Scotland today, from noise monitoring devices to participatory video and community mapping projects.RAFFLE - broadband fundraiserThis year we are raising funds to improve our network facilities at the Electron Club and we will be doing a raffle with prizes including a group voucher to go paintballing.

Looking back: the good, the bad, and the ugly

I thought a bit of reflection might be appropriate (and if not, tell me so and I will quickly remove what might be considered a waste of space and time): Not to start off on a negative foot, but this only came up recently, as I don't get to see much TV (probably to my benefit), and while scanning through the Online TV Guide, I saw this TV show title: America's Most Smartest ModelTo me, it is appalling that those producing a show on the "smartest" would commit such a mistake in English; and any model that appeared on the show without making mention of the title would, in my opinion, show that they are not as skilled as some 6th graders in the English language. On the bright side, I discovered Eureka! this year, and is about the only "fictional" show I can bare to watch. Lists and comments welcome !

Instructables... A TV show?

Yes, yes I know there was/is the Ibles TV streaming vids but...What if we have a proper Instructables TV show?In each episode the cast (who don't behave like a bunch of bumbling, mumbling, caffeinated baboons) can demonstrate how to do a few of the more popular ibles, and give some tips on DIY and whatnot.Authors of the ibles used on the show could get paid a small commision... *has vision of Kiteman rolling in a big pile greenbacks wearing bling-bling*... Or perhaps not.But I think it would be a good idea, it would increase traffic on the site, get more ibles submitted, and on the whole increase the popularity of Instructables. PBS or Discovery might take it up (I prefer PBS personally)...

Instructables YouTube Show/Series

Hello! I had the idea of making a YouTube show promoting great tutorials and projects from Instructables about 3 years ago. At the time I didn't have the skills to create it. After taking up a short course in video editing and graphics, I was finally able to create it!  I wanted the show to really help get the word out not only about Instructables, but also the world of DIY, recycling, re-using, creativity and the hands on building skills that many of us are losing because of the impact of new technologies. If the show motivates just one person who isn't familiar with Instructables to create something, I think it's a great success! Here's the first episode: I hope you like it! There'll be more episodes to come! Thanks,  - Nick PS. All authors gave me permission to feature their Instructables in the video.

I know it's a little off topic for this site but I really do not care seeing as how many people like LOST. If you want to start watching LOST and have never seen an episode before...or maybe you have seen an episode or two...or maybe you missed an episode...they can all be found at just click FULL EPISODES at the top of the page and when the new screen comes up look to the left and click the season you want to watch and the episode!

need some help with a computer controled water show

Ok so I am starting a project ware I have a computer that controls well a water show. So I am going to use pvc pipe and set up my first test rig that has 4 jets and I am going to have a compressed air and water supply. The water fills into one of the jets and the air pushes it out. The problem I am having is finding a way to deliver compressed air in bursts or controlling the flow of how much air leaves. I need a way in which u can have a valve that opens as much as I need it to but it has to be able to be controlled remotely. Any ideas. Thanks

How do we watch?  How do we present ourselves to the eyes of the world?

Rube Goldberg TV Show Casting Call

This sounds like fun:A new Discovery Channel show is looking for teams of ARTISTS, SCIENTISTS, ENGINEERS, ARCHITECTS and DESIGNERS with experience in building RUBE GOLDBERG MACHINES. (Thanks to BoingBoing for the link!)More details:This show shoots in January in Los Angeles so the application process will be moving quickly.Super Rubes is a weekly one-hour show that follows a band of talented creators as they design, build, and set off a massive Chain Reaction Machine in front of a cheering crowd. The point of a Chain Reaction Machine is to do something very simple, like turn on a light bulb, using as many steps as possible. This is an opportunity for engineers to let their creative hair down and have some fun building a giant Chain Reaction Machine. Our team will take on impossible challenges (i.e. , Can you crack an egg with a human hair?) in a race against the clock.We are looking for fun, interesting, charismatic and outgoing individuals of all ethnicities and types 25-39 years old to comprise a diverse team of people who are involved in engineering/building: This means architects, engineers, scientists, pyro-technicians, art directors/designers, even professors or hobbyists who are simply passionate about these topics. We don't need an expert in every area, just someone who loves to design and build.The team should be a mix of a skills, a mix of personality types, and have a playful, funny camaraderie, so if there are existing teams out there, all the better, or if couples/triples have worked together and want to present themselves as the start of a team, we are open to that too.

Not a bug, but a feature request

In the forum sections we can see who made the last comment and I find this info very helpful. In the Answers sections however we only see the number of replies given so far. A lot of us like to help out by providing more or less usefull answers and it would be great to see who provided the last. This way it is easy to see if the person asking for help actually came back and replied him/herself. As an alternative it would be almost as good to see a tick, point or "replied" info once the person asking replied again. Would of course also help during springclean to remove tons of questions that never got solved.... Not to mention user from the database ;)
