Anyone want to learn electronics?

A while ago I was going to start an electronic tutorial video podcast, but that took too much effort to make everything professional looking and well thought out.  I want to retackle this project by having a video whenever i feel like it (at least 1 a week) answering questions that people ask or just want a video on because people generally learn better via video than reading some boring text :P  Also, this podcast isn't going to be editted or anything, because all of that stuff just takes away all of the fun and just becomes boring. So, in short, I'm going to start an improvised video podcast answering people's questions to the best of my abilities. Anyone have any questions that they would like to have answered?

Things You Want to Build During Your Lifetime

Every now and then, I come across a big project that I want to build at some point during my lifetime. These projects may have some special or sentimental meaning, or they may just be ridiculously cool! Personally, I prefer a little of both :-) I have two specific projects on my mind: A flight simulator (check out my other post titled "flight simulator," for some reason it didn't post into the tech room and wont show up anywhere-- Just click on my username and click on it) And a dark room. Both of these projects mean something special to me, and I hope to build them some time or another. But the real reason for this post is to hear what you guys want to build. So, reply to this post with your ideas, and maybe you'll inspire someone else! Thanks, MDJ

What do you want in an arduino?

Inspired by the Illuminato Arduino clone (can't really say clone because it's so much better!) really wants me to create my own Arduino clone. I've been thinking of making a clone for the Arduino Mega, but it'd need so feature that the original Arduino can't offer (like the boarduino is breadboard compatible, Sanguino has way more pins, Illuminato is the most beautiful PCB I've ever seen and has a lot of I/O's). So, I'm asking you guys! What features would you want in an arduino? If this "new" arduino is so much better than any other existing one I'll make kits (if the majority is through hole) for people to buy (no more than 40 dollars, probably, the 65 dollar price tag is a real turn off for the Mega) or just assembled if the majority is smd. Also instructable :P

squidbee help (temperature sensor)

Hi I have a squidbee which i bought online, i soldered it and everything as i have the arduino board (uno) and xbee shield board, i fixed it as the instruction says but i realized i need to buy a gateway, therefore i want to change it back to using it through usb as i do not mind if its wireless or usb, but prefer usb as it sounds much easier. I am stuck now of what to do? do i remove the xbee shielf and just do everything on the arduino board? or do i remove the chip? i have no clue. the website is http://www.sensor-networks.org/index.php?page=0817717728 i am kind of stuck i have some idea but do not want to damage it as its part of my project thanks please help as soon as possible much appreciated dan

Things ended... But I'm sure she still likes me. I still like her. We look, but neither of us goes for it. Help!?!?

Ok so here's the story. At the beginning of the year, I met this girl. She's in eighth grade and I'm in seventh. Not too much difference. We have band and algebra together. We sit next to eachother in band, and talked nonstop. It didn't take me long to realize how much we had in common. A lot. I knew I at least liked her, but I was too shy to say anything. Finally one day the band teacher said there had been a lot of flirting going on between the two of us. The next day she told me. She had felt the same way all along. We decided to try dating eachother. That was thursday. We IM'd all afternoon and most of the night that day. The same the next day. And the next. And all weekend, until monday. She didn't log on, and things had been quiet between us two that day. I knew something was wrong. She IM'd me on tuesday and ended it. OUCH! So things were very quiet the next few months. We only talked when we had to. Which wasn't much. I still liked her, but I didn't know if she still felt the same. Recently, the past few months, things have picked up momentum again. Lots of talking. Nonstop. Again. She is so much fun to be with. I've noticed in band and algebra she's been watching me, looking over every now and then. I'd always been doing that, all year. Just to see if she would look over and everything would be okay again. We've met eyes almost once a day the past two weeks. She smiles at me, a lot. I truly believe now that she still likes me, and that the feeling never disappeared. I want it to be the way it was. That was the best weekend of my life. I love her. I don't know what to do to get her back. Who out there can help? Please! I'm desperate! P.S. I know I'm going to get a lot of comments saying I'm too young to love, but whether or not that is true, I like her enough to date her. So it's beside the point. I'll be ignoring comments saying that unless they make a very strong point. Thanks!

First Instructables here!

Ever done your first Instructable and then not to have had much interest from others? Never really wanted to tell every one about it because that might be considered as "Advertising"?Well, firstly, it's not advertising if it's not obtrusive and secondly, you're in the right place!Post here the first of your many Instructables to come, give it's title, a brief description, a picture or two and a link. There's no prize (from me) but you will get a lot more views than previously.Here's mine, it's a simple optical illusion that's not too hard to make (if you know how) and is an extremely easy way to make money at school, when people start asking "Can I have one?" and "Can you make me one?" Just remember, feed back's always nice, comment on every one else's; they might comment on yours.Hope to see yours!~K
