DJ Radio- celebrating 14 years of pure awesome. (Aka my birthday) -UPDATE

Yes, today is my birthday.  I am 14.  I have a cake and everything.  I was gonna post a gun to concide with this event but unfortunately I couldn't finish it in time.  Oh well. *Update* To coincide with my birthday, I will not read any PM unless it has "To his majesty, the Honorable DJ Radio" in the subject line until March 15, 2010, 14 days from now.  The only exceptions are staff and replies to PM's I have made before March 1.  I'm serious, if you want your PM's read, you have to use that subject line until March 15.

Nickleback - "If Today Was Your Last Day" with lyrics....any comments?

If Today Was Your Last Day... - Nickleback I bolded the lines / words I thought most interesting and appropriate. My best friend gave me the best adviceHe said each day's a gift and not a given rightLeave no stone unturned, leave your fears behindAnd try to take the path less traveled byThat first step you take is the longest strideIf today was your last dayAnd tomorrow was too lateCould you say goodbye to yesterday?Would you live each moment like your last?Leave old pictures in the pastDonate every dime you have?If today was your last dayAgainst the grain should be a way of lifeWhat's worth the prize is always worth the fightEvery second counts 'cause there's no second trySo live like you'll never live it twiceDon't take the free ride in your own lifeIf today was your last dayAnd tomorrow was too lateCould you say goodbye to yesterday?Would you live each moment like your last?Leave old pictures in the pastDonate every dime you have?Would you call old friends you never see?Reminisce old memoriesWould you forgive your enemies?Would you find that one you're dreamin' of?Swear up and down to God aboveThat you finally fall in loveIf today was your last dayIf today was your last dayWould you make your mark by mending a broken heart?You know it's never too late to shoot for the starsRegardless of who you areSo do whatever it takes 'Cause you can't rewind a moment in this lifeLet nothin' stand in your wayCause the hands of time are never on your sideIf today was your last dayAnd tomorrow was too lateCould you say goodbye to yesterday?Would you live each moment like your last?Leave old pictures in the pastDonate every dime you have?Would you call old friends you never see?Reminisce old memoriesWould you forgive your enemies?Would you find that one you're dreamin' of?Swear up and down to God aboveThat you finally fall in loveIf today was your last day

Sort Suggestion - "Views Today"

Just thinking that it would be cool to be able to sort your instructables by 'Views Today'.  It would be a quick way to see what project might be causing a spike in views without having to try to run the graph on a lot of instructables at once (which tends to time out).

Adding Today Views To Published Screen

I like to keep track of the statistics on my instructables, so I click on "Published" to see how they are doing. There is: Total Views; Rating; and Comments. Would it be possible to add "Today Views" as well, so that you don't have to open up each instructable, and then go to "stats" for this bit of information? Thank you! Cman

'allsteps' seems buggy today

Hi, I'm having a lot of issues seeing all steps today.  I'm using chrome on win 8.1.  When I click on the grid (view all steps) sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, and it has stopped displaying ALLSTEPS at the end of the url.  I'm not sure if it is connected but I've been looking at instructables for ages without issue, but only signed up yesterday. is the timing related?

oddest question you will hear today

Take a small gasoline powered leafblower (say, 3hp), put a hose on the blower end, and connect the hose to the air filter, how much of a horse power increase can i expect?

Instructables mentioned in Tree Lobsters! today

I read a few webcomics here and there.  One of my favorites is Tree Lobsters!, a four panel comic about arboreal crustaceans with a scientific and skeptical bent.   I was pleased this morning after I read today's comic, when I tapped the "Secret Message" button at the bottom of the page and found a brief but amusing reference to the site we all know and love.

Downloading PDF

In two separate categories today I have tried to download the PDF but instead of the PDF of the page I am on, it goes directly to some LED throwing light instructions. Disappointing as today is my only day to browse this website for goodies and save them for future use.

Possible accidental early publishing?

Today, I got a comment from a random stranger whom I have never seen before on this site.  The comment was posted on an unpublished ible, which I have NOT posted a link to on the site.   Interestingly, looking at the publish date, it says it was published today, although I never published the ible at all, and earlier today it said [date] in that spot The instructable IS a collaboration with Oblivitus, who agreed to help me with a few images for it.  Keywords and categories have been added if that helps any.

Chrome open source browser available now!

At the moment, the only thing available for people anticipating Google's new open source browser, chrome, is screenshots and a comic book explaining why it was made. LinkyBut it is supposed to be available for download later today. Rumor is it will become available at 2 PM ET today. No word yet on whether it will steal your identity like Microsoft's IE.Hooray for opensource browsers! If it does become available today as planned, I'll link to the download page.Corrected link: Download linkSorry it took so long, I was scrubbing a toilet and simply lost track of the time...EDIT:Go here for adblocker, gmail, etc, GM scripts to run in chrome.

Lyric ideas....

Got bored and I thought this sounded pretty cool. What do you think? Superficial agony, mutilating shockwave, Flamboyant Armageddon will never behave, scintillating ball of fire, shimmering sea disappears without desire, pseudoscientific forumula, Timewave-zero is true.... Day after day, night after night, with much research it proves no one is alright... Pseudoscientific forumula, timewave-zero is true, This ball of fire has come out of the blue Awoken from self-destruction Realistic power reduction Nevertheless memories fade Anxious tempting till' the next day Breathless exhaustion, cannot breath Trapped in a jail cell, try to leave Never surrender, throughout this fight, But to think again, I just think I might. Today, I will learn against my will, This battle will cause a void to fill
