the web archive

The web archive at web.archive.org is one of the best websites I've seen.  (yes instructables is another.)  Ive known about it for a while and wanted to share it.  It lets you go back to past versions of web pages,  simply enter the url and hit "take me back" For as big as it is, you can search a lot, though not everything is there.  Note: Sadly instructables is not searchable from this site due to a file labeled "robots.txt" which prevents them from searching instructables.

making real web shooters ?

Well i have been searching the web for real tech like the movies. and i've always been a spidey fan unfortunately the web shooters don't exist. because no one knows about the fluid or the shooter  i got some idea's for the fluid i think  most people believe that there is glue in the mix but i think maybe liquid rubber would work as long as it's still liquid until it squirts out or like some kind of string to shoot out with it to stick to it to make it a solid web .and for a very important part of the shooter a small narrow nozzle  i'm not a science wiz so please give me some ideas  or comments.

Any advice on setting up a personal web server, please? Answered

Allow me to apologise in advance: I have checked with Google and am still a bit confused. Currently I pay for webhosting and I'd like to do away with those costs. I want to set up a reasonable fast pc to act as a server for my websites. Has anyone here actually done such a thing and was it (very) difficult? Also, once I have bought my web domains, how do I point to my own server? I don't need the detail of the how to as I can research that - what I need to know is just how much work this will entail and what range of Linux/Microsfot products will be needed. Many thanks.

free website hosts that are reliable

Ok, well, I was interested in creating my own little website (not sure what it should contain), but I need a web host. Im 13, so I dont feel like paying for a host, the instructables on how to create a website have not been helpful in this topic, so, i was wondering if any of you know of any reliable free web hosts. Also, i wonder if the domain "www.djradio.org" is taken or something... the .com and .net ones are already taken, although djradio.net is for sale..............

Web Collaboration, of Sorts

No, not the World Wide Web--colonies of spiders that build giant communal webs to catch their prey. However, there is an interesting twist: spiders maximize their food supply per spider if the colony includes 500 spiders; more than that, and each spider gets less.As the number of occupants grows, the volume of the webs they construct increases - but the surface-area-to-volume ratio declines. The area of web is the all-important determinant of numbers of prey caught, so bigger colonies catch proportionally fewer prey items.Reminds me of Dunbar's Number, the theory that says that groups of larger than approximately 150 people are no longer optimal because humans cannot effectively have and maintain that many social relationships.Spider Webs Article

I was thinking of having the web cam to be mounted on a USB rocket launcher sort of thing, but it would be great if i i find an instructable which tells me how to do this using a few stepper motors which i have from my old printers. Specially i would love if a stepper motor control system through USB port is provided.

Massive web made with packing tape

Design collective For Use/Numen used about 117,000 feet of tape to make this fantastic web in a former stock exchange building in Vienna. It's strong enough for people to walk on. In fact it wsa made for a dance troupe. “The installation is based on an idea for a dance performance in which the form evolves from the movement of the dancers between the pillars,” explains For Use’s Christoph Katzler. “The dancers are stretching the tape while they move, so the resulting shape is a recording of the choreography.” Check out the link for more pictures and a video.

I found you all here due to a search i did looking on tips of building and hosting my own web site, and what i read here in great detail with no fuzz i just thought was the bees knees. I do have one problem but, if i use my ip address to host my own server on an old machine and use a new pc for working here at home, the ip address will be the same, will this not lead to people trying to gain excess to my every day to day pc? jamstir.

Irritating Site PopUps

I quite like getting notiification emails and I often like to check out the featured article on the web pages but I sure as heck get extremely irritated that the popups appear so quickly and cover so much of the page that it interferes with my reading of the article. Can these be turned off/delayed? I understand the desire to market the tutorials to interested people but this is just darned irritating. BTW - this comment page hung for ages because of Google analytics - not very user friendly.
