Can nobody hear my woes?

I'm a little worried that I couldn't actually find some of my topics I just posted in the actual forums I posted them in, so I'm wondering has someone blocked my usage of topics?

Why is it that even though I'm a pro member many features are not available to me

I have been a member of Instructables for many years and have always been reticent about posting here. This is simply because as I do not live in the USA , even though I am British I seem excluded from many activities here eg competitions forum groups etc. I know rules and regulations may be varied between nations but  I always thought the world wide web was a place to celebrate skills wherever they arise on the planet  . I do off course accept that any obstruction of such freedoms is a denial of that freedom but does not authorise  surely freedom to partake in abetter world..... ho hum rant over any thoughts good people

So I have been inactive for a while now...

So I have been inactive for a while now. You may have noticed this if I havent been replying to your comments... Now I am going to be honest. I am getting rather bored of this site. No offence to any staff or anyone who this may offend. There is no new stuff, Im slowly growing out of my Knex, I havent played with it in a while... And another thing to be honest with... Im addicted to Habbo. Yes. Habbo. SO... Yah... So I may be on every once or twice a day, but I wont be replying to many comments. If there is a comment you asked me something on, just tell me in a comment to this and I will check it out. If it is important enough I will reply. If I dont reply, leave a comment on my OB. If I dont reply to that comment on my OB, tell me on here. If I dont reply to the comment on here, tell me on my OB :-P

So what Knex gun should I build next?

I have built the ZKAR v2 before, it really was a magnificent gun. Played quite a few wars with it and I beated the entire neighbourhood and their El Diablo's and Turret Pistols. It was my trusty gun and we have been through quite a lot. Now it is time for me to say goodbye to my beloved ZKAR w\scope, and to step up. The ZKAR v2 was great, but now it does all weird things. It breaks down very often and such. The bolt often jams and the trigger doesn't work quite properly either, but that's more because it is a really old gun. I've been using it for almost a year now if not more then a year. It is time for me to use something else. Only one question remains. What should I use? I need a Knex gun that can either beat or outclass the ZKAR v2. That means reliability is key, yet any kinds of fancy guns would still be nice. I am already thinking something like swagboss or D-TAB. Anyone has any suggestions? Preferably no TR-18. I can't stand turrets, they always have problems with me.

So Team Fortress 2 Is Down

Since a few days ago many Team Fortress 2 Players have been experiencing a frustrating anomaly. Team Fortress 2 (and on occasion other source games) DO NOT WORK! This is very frustrating, opinions have been voiced that it is due to extreme server overload due to all the F2P people coming in by the thousands. This is not only frustrating but also unfair, ask one of my very good friends who actually pre-ordered Team Fortress 2, was a dedicated Gamer and Beta Tester but has now been demoted so much he can't even boot up the game anymore, while several F2P "gamers" had no trouble at all booting the game up. Does anyone else see a problem with this?

I am CRUSHED.... :-(

I had finally gotten my "project" (for the gift exchange) finished, well except for some cosmetic touches to make it look nicer then it did.  I tested it for the last time, and a wire crossed and the speaker when POOF in a puff of smoke. This thing has me so depressed at not being able to finish it and get it sent that I am having troubles just getting back in and tearing it all out to replace the speaker and maybe put in a dampener resister to prevent it from happening again......I AM going to finish this one way or another......just wanted you all to know I am having to deal with a lot lately (my Mom becoming ill and maybe needing full time "residence in a facility" and being the only one left in the family willing to do anything, a whole lot has been dumped into my lap since July. But I DO intend on getting this out somehow, but Tuesday...but I am so sorry for this horribly long delay.

I've just joined Etsy! Any other etsy members here? What do ou make and sell? More the the point, if i post some pictures of stuff i've made in this forum, can anyone give me a price recommendation in US dollars? I'm not really interested in making a great deal of profit, but it'd be nice to recoup some of the time and money i've spent making things over the years. I'll have pictures up by tonight.

Mas mesmo que não  seja dado retorno a mim deste email, gentileza me ajudar a saber quais são os melhores centros no Brasil principalmente sudeste qual tecnologia usada, quais  tipos de proteses existem, como funcionam como se dá manutenção, se existe grupos de usuários de protese, e também para transplante de coclea, muito obrigada. Seria um milagre e algo incomparável de ótimo, eu agradeço. Bom dia a todos Deus os ilumine para que conseguir grandes vitórias nesta área.

I might not be on so much this week - I am BACK

Well, as I said in my last forum topic, my laptop's wireless card was being faulting and only working every few days so I am now sending my laptop in to get it fixed, so as I said last time, I might not be on so much, so don't expect me to have quick replies. So I might be here, I might not, it is just going to be harder for me to get on Instructables. Hope I can be here this week n8man

MY COMPUTER IS SO FREAKING LOUD

Sometimes I can't even hear my music over it! How do I quiet it down? It pisses me off so much, and gives me headaches. Oh and, I can't spend any money on it, and my parents are paranoid about modding our computer, because they don't know a crap about it, so I can't really do any mods to quiet it. So I guess i'm screwed.
