How to make things?

WoodworkingAsk MetaFilter has an excellent question (How to make things?) with some great replies – “I’m looking for books that tell general building techniques, for example, how to weld, basic wood working principles, how to fabricate things, etc. Also, websites or blogs that cover that sort of thing would be nice. Also, I’d prefer books that suggest ways to build things without a lot of tools (For example, I own a circular saw and a Jigsaw but no table saw). In short: I’m looking for things that will teach me basic building techniques from wood to metal and electronics.” Link.

  1. I think it would be great if you could give you some additional information on how the bot was made. Love you guys and all but for MAKE, this explanation – “The MAKEbot was made with Perl” feels a bit brief.. :-)



  2. One of my bots, the “AIM IRC Bridge” screen name on AIM, has known how to parse “google for ” for a long time now.

    That bot’s primary purpose is to link an AIM chat room “AOLserver” with the IRC channel #aolserver.

    My bots are made with Tcl. :-)
