Is there anything hidden in the star ratings?

Support Star by buying a t-shirt

Star needs help covering her court fees for the "hoax device" that she was wearing. You can either send her money by paypal directly or you can buy a shirt and $5 of the proceeds will go to Star.If your order is over $15, you can get $5 off by using this coupon: SPREADSHIRT3000Since the lightweight shirts are cheaper, I bumped the price up a bit so you could use the coupon for one shirt. You save money and another $1 goes to Star.Let me know if there are other shirt styles that you want. Or you can design your own shirt by clicking the "Create and Sell a t-shirt with this design" button. Be aware that it may not look so hot on a colored shirt since it's a digital transfer. click here to donate directly click here to see the shirts

Star wars fans look here!

This is it, the most durable knex lightsaber ever imagined. Each piece doubles up the next creating a blade that will not bend nor break, even with high speed collision. The hilt (figure 2) is also quite detailed considering this is made with knex. The only con to this is that the blade doesn't retract. If you like what you see then tell me. I will make it an instructable if asked.

Star Wars Uncut wins an Emmy

Star Wars Uncut used the power of thousands of fans to recreate the original Star Wars, 15 seconds at a time. All of the clips have been gathered together at the website, but the soundtrack is being held up by legal issues. Still, that didn't stop the creator, Casey Pugh, from winning an Emmy for it. An Emmy! It hasn't aired, but since it was made for broadcast it was considered eligible. Congratulations to Pugh and all the folks who contributed! Star Wars Uncut — Emmy Winner

Star Rating System Implemented

Instructables can now be rated on a 5-star rating scale. So instead of saying that you like an Instructable, you can now say just how much you like it! Some fancy mathematical formulas were used to convert the previous ratings to the new scale, providing the scores that you see now. These formulas will be getting tweaked as we get some kinks out of the system and fine tune the results, but all of the new ratings will be saved for more accurate results in the future. So for now, go out and use the stars to more accurately rate new and older Instructables! More ratings will help fine tune future searches and encourage more people to post better Instructables.

what I can do to recreate the Star Trek Yoyager (DS9) uniform any ideas?

I just bought the Star Trek Yoyager badge from Think Geek (so I can use it for my DS9 cosplay for Free Comic Book Day) I've thought getting a long sleeved red polo and dye that to be the look of Voyager/DS9 and use my badge and put that on to complete the look with my own hand crafted Captain rank pin,and I was thinking to make the collar on the polo grey and I just get a grey shirt to blend it in. Any ideas I could make this uniform I would love to make for cosplay, I could find the uniform itself premade but I'll love to make it my own with little or no money.

Star (stasterisk) arrested at Logan airport for bomb scare

A 19 year old female M.I.T. student was arrested at gunpoint after entering Boston's Logan International Airport with what authorities claim was "a fake bomb" strapped to her chest, according to wire reports. The device is said to have been some kind of computer circuit board with Play-Doh and wires attached, strapped over her black hoodie. Link to AP report on her arrest.The young woman is identified as Star Simpson, shown in the image above left, and she is a sophomore from Hawaii. She has a user account on Instructables. Boingboing story Star's Instructables pageUPDATE: CNN videoUPDATE 2: Pic addedUPDATE 3: Canida's response added to BoingBoing, and a call for geek-protection sticker designs!UPDATE 4: Simpson pleaded not guilty to a charge of possessing a hoax device at her arraignment in East Boston District Court Friday afternoon. She was released on $750 bail and ordered to stay away from Logan Airport.Simpson could face up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine. WBZTV storyUPDATE 5: We had a quick chat with Star! She's doing fine, and after dodging packs of media she's finally getting back to work on her problem sets. There's still school, you know. Of course, they've impounded her sweatshirt, so she's got to do something else for the career fair.

There's a shower coming.

From my inbox:The annual Perseid meteor shower peaks on Tuesday, August 12th. The best time to look is during the dark hours before dawn on Tuesday morning when forecasters expect 50 to 100 meteors per hour. Get away from city lights if you can; plan a camping trip! The darker the sky, the more meteors you will see. The source of the Perseids is Comet Swift-Tuttle, which has littered the August portion of Earth's orbit with space dust. The dusty zone is broad and Earth is already in its outskirts. As a result, even before the peak on August 12th, you may see some "early Perseids" streaking across the night sky. Photos of these early arrivals will be featured in the days ahead on Spaceweather.com as part of our full coverage of the Perseid meteor shower.Being on holiday, I will be spending most of the shower either under city lights or in the wettest (and hence cloudiest) part of Britain, and unable to lay out large tarpaulins to catch rainwater.So, I won't be able to go fishing, or get time out to watch them. I wonder - will you?EDIT: I have, as predicted seen nothing. Rain, rain, rain, rain, rain, rain ...

Star Wars intro by Saul Bass

What if one movie intro was reimagined in the style of another artist? In this case it's the style of the late great Saul Bass who did many amazing title sequences like Vertigo or The Man with the Golden Arm.This is cooler than Episodes I, II, and III combined.via Drawn! And then there's the deluxe remix version as well.

The oldest known astronomical atlas -- ca. 667 CE !

I ran across a preprint today which I find wonderfully impressive. It documents a Chinese astronomical atlas prepared some time between 649-684 CE (AD, for the oldsters) , and covering the complete visible sky of the Northern Hemisphere. Star positions are accurate to within a couple of degrees (with naked eye observations). As the authors write in their abstract, This set of sky maps (12 hour angle maps in quasi-cylindrical projection and a circumpolar map in azimuthal projection), displaying the full sky visible from the Northern hemisphere, is up to now the oldest complete preserved star atlas from any civilisation. It is also the first known pictorial representation of the quasi-totality of the Chinese constellations.

Steampunk lighsaber?

I found some scrap brass lying around and wanted to make something steampunk. The only metal I had lying around was brass. I found a 6 in. shaft that was just begging to be a lightsaber. I attached a male coupling to one end the shaft, and a female coupling to the other end. It sort of has a steampunk vibe to it. Right now the only material being used is brass and I have not permanently attached anything. I looked at a bunch of lightsaber tutorials for ideas but I want to keep the steampunk aesthetic. Do you think this is even a good idea?

Ratings Stars not appearing

I have discovered that while viewing Instructables, I cannot rate them because no stars appear in the box to the right. I see the current rating and number of views but no stars. I did discover that by passing my cursor above the rating that the value of the stars appears to the right of the current rating in blue. I am able now to rate the Instructable. However, it begs the question: if this bug is keeping many people from rating projects since they do not see the stars.

Rating Method

Some time ago YouTube changed their rating system from stars, to likes and, dislikes. I was just curios if it would be illegal for Instructables to utilize this same method. Also, if anyone prefers the like/dislike method better than the stars method then, tell me in the comments.

PVC Art(?) How to make PVC Art that spins and turns from Star to Square.

I saw a "yard decoration" made out of PVC Pipe. Viewed one way it was a Square. Viewed another it was a star (6 sided I think.) So when the wind blew and it spun it was...a star..a square....a star..a square....a star..a square....you get the picture. Well I made one and gave it away. Years later I tried to make another and couldn't do it. All you need are several pieces of pvc pipe and about a dozen elbows (90degree bends). Can anyone help me make this? A picture of one you may have would be helpful. Or a web site ...anything. Thanks Modgod

It's a mash-up triple play that makes a geeks head explode with shimmery bits of silvery stuff and apparently it's really happening. There are even a couple of entries including the X-Wing below.

For Star

I want to do something for star...as you know, she was arrested for having a "fake bomb" hoodie. Read more here.The problem is that we all live so far apart, we can't have any sort of protest, like was had for the tazed kid at UF. I'm trying to think of things we could do to show our support that doesn't require mass gatherings. So one idea that came to mind was having the front be a picture like what she had on hers, and on the back, some kind of a message. Do you like that idea? Do you have any others? Just like..discuss, and we can try and find the best thing to do. If we do decide to make shirts (iron on paper) maybe we could all wear them monday, or something?
