Filtered search box

Not a bug, just thought you ought to know that our school filter blocks the search box. (The half-word "network" is all that will fit of the usual message with which the system replaces filtered content.)

favorite music artists/bands?

Ok, i just want to do a bit of a survey here, ill just start with my favesfavorite music band:shop boyz- their song "party like a rock star" was awesome, its part one of my theme song. their remix is cool, and is my second part.............favorite music solo artist:i would declare this a tie between Chris Brown and Soulja boy. Chris brown's "kiss-kiss" was tight, especially on the t-pain solo part, his other song was good too...........Soulja boy made the tight song "soulja boy tellem". He also made a little spin- off of the song, which is the song "soulja boy with soulja girl". and his last one "YA!", i liked that one, it expressed his real feelings as a celebrity perfectly........................ oh, and DONT EVEN GET ME STARTED ON THE DANCE....................so what is your favorite song artist?

Noob Q about inverter for an ornithopter

I was looking in the back of my Jameco catalog the other day and they listed a product called "Muscle wire". It's apparently a nickel-titanium alloy that shrinks as it heats up. It occurred to me that I could flap ornithopter wings with it (a really small ornithopter). I was trying to figure out how I could switch voltage from one pair of wires (the flap UP wires) to the other pair of wires (the flap DOWN wires) without a microchip. I came up with something I'm sure wouldn't work involving a couple transistors, a diode and a cap. Today on wikipedia I figured out that what I was doing was something close to an inverter.So here's the question: Anyone know of a simple switching circuit that runs on a/c power and does not have square-wave switching characteristics?I'll keep researching this myself, but sometimes 'tis quicker to ask the big-brained and kind hearted (you know who you are).

Operation Immortality

Operation Immortality is a project to collect and archive the very best of what humanity is and has accomplished. On October 12, 2008, Richard Garriott, famed video game designer and the first second generation American astronaut, will take digitized DNA and human accomplishments with him to store in outer space when he journeys to the International Space Station.The archive will include information on humanity's greatest achievements, messages from people all over the world, and DNA samples from some of our brightest minds and most accomplished athletes. During the month of September, every human being is invited to come to the OperationImmortality.com website to submit their suggestions for our greatest achievements and leave a message for the cosmos. A lucky few may also be selected to add their DNA to the mix and join Richard Garriott as he rockets out of the atmosphere.With the LHC ready to do its thing, I think this organization has surfaced at the right time, save the earth, before we might all die.To def.LINK

Room Changing Keyboard?

Have you guys ever seen the music video for "fireflies" by owl city where the keyboard makes things turn on? yes that is all video effects, but wouldnt it be cool if someone wired up a keyboard to turn on a light display as you hit a key?

I feel so overwhelmed

I've just returned to making stuff. A former tinkerer turned university student and I can't even make an electric project cause i'm worried i'll be a disgrace as an engineer. I tried fixing my tablet but ended up frying the PCB. Now i'm afraid i'm gonna blow something up. I'm also worried that what I make is something someone else made. So copyrights and what not. How did people deal with this fear?  I also feel like I have no initiative i.e. not doing something the easier way and end up looking like a fool. Or do I just look into people's perception of me too much?

So I was cleaning some stuff out tonight and I found a bunch of stuff I really have no use for I found: - an external CD/DVD dual layer burner - 4 output VGA splitter - firewire PCI card - 56k fax modem card - old keyboard - a distortion pedal (guitar pedal) - 3 various capacity harddrives - knock off ipod nano (broken) - old comp speakers w/oldschool mini - subwoofer - acoustic guitar soundhole pick-up - crappy digital camera with IR filter removed - unused web cam - huge assortment of cords - USB wall charger (small box with outlet prongs and female usb input) can anyone think of any quality usable projects I could make with any or all of this stuff? (I might be willing to part with the more expensive items.....EX. Burner or VGA splitter for shipping and an super extremely discounted purchase price...... I'm to lazy to Ebay any of it)

Things from your childhood

I was looking at onceuponawin.com and kept thinking "OMG I remember that!" next thing I know I was watching Hey Arnold on youtube. So what are somenostalgic things you remember from your childhood? I figured this would be kind of interesting because we're definitely not all the same ages :)  My list would probably have to be: The Sega Genesis Rugrats! Hey Arnold Sticker books Choose your own adventure books Furbies LEGOS! I was always jealous of my brother because of all the legos he had :P Pop rocks Slap bracelets Lite Brites! There's more I can't think of but I'm sure others can think of a lot more.

Questions about 5disc CD Player

I have a Symphonic 5disc CD changer, Model is CD-5001 I was wondering if anyone could point me to instructables I could do based on it's parts. Or maybe tell me if there's any fun stuff inside it. There's random gears.. capacitors, a circuit board, plenty of wire, the laser that reads the CDs.. Any help would be wonderful, I'm pretty new to this sort of thing. My main question is if there's way I can experiment with it, or turn it into other things. :) Thanks in advance!

Why can't Instructables make a "shortage of resources" contest?

Not so much is this the question above, as it is a request. Throughout my life on instructables I have MAYBE seen one or two 'ibles that don't require massave amounts of experience and or resources. Neither of which I have much of. Nor do I have money to get resources. My real question is "what great 'ibles are there that don't require resources" although I would like the topic question to be answered also. Please help me out, my creative mind is exploding with Ideas, but I don't have much to work with.
