New format Answered

Wow, I have to say the changes to Instructables were not good ones. You took a perfectly usable interface for the projects and managed to make it harder to use. I feel frustrated that I had to dig to get what I wanted. And this whole Ace branding scheme, guess it's time for the site creators to cash out, right? Really, you've taken a site I enjoyed visiting and made it useless.

.  What did you try? Did you use the "Google Custom Search" box? Not enough pertinent hits? Too many hits? Robot can't read your mind.

.  Wow! The Ace channel is all but hidden (just a small tab/button at the top of most pages) and it still raises your hackles? A bit touchy, eh?
.  How do you expect Robot to feed Corvidae?

The Ace channel is NOT hidden for me. I think the poster might be referring to the HUGE Ace hardware video ads that pop up in the center of the screen before being able to see anything I actually want to see. And its also nice that those ads have audio that blares at maximum volume so if you are on your lunch hour, everyone in the office knows you are browsing (allowed at my employers during lunch hour btw). Seriously, there are "tasteful" ways to advertise on a site, but the new format is RIDICULOUS. The CONTENT is no longer the focus, the site is overrun by advertising.

.  My mistake. I don't see those, but I can see how they could be irritating. Unfortunately, online services don't have a lot of options for making a profit nowadays. TANSTAAFL
.  I have to admit that, no matter what the situation, full-volume audio is not a good thing. :(

The last sentence always manages to shut me up when I wanna complain about that kind of thing.

I don't mean it breaks through my defenses, or tears them down, or stops them. I mean it comes in with a hand grenade and OBLITERATES them.
