Re: FS: Hand made arcade stick.

Thanks for the compliments and suggestions. Yes, these pictures are out of date. The stick now has rubber feet covering the screws.

As a side note, I also am available to do commissioned custom arcade sticks tailored exactly to a client's liking. Any interested parties, please let me know via PM!

FS: Hand made arcade stick.

Hey everybody. It's been a long time since I've been around these parts. My interests drifted away from portables and into carpentry. Recently though, I discovered a wonderful way to merge my first love, electronics, with my wood working passion. Arcade sticks! http://img204.imageshack.us/img204/222...

Re: SAT scores

I don't remember my individual scores, but I got an 1820 overall on my first and only SAT. Didn't take the ACT, wanted to though.

Re: America's Waste: Ruining our futures!

So your telling me that your government can tell you that you can no longer drive your car if it falls out of emission standards. So everyone who's car doesn't meet that requirement are f***ed over by the government due to some bogus junk science? Wow, that's some BIG government you got up there. An...

Re: America's Waste: Ruining our futures!

Actually, they are exactly like us. They are happy with what they have because they have never known anything better than what they have. If your logic is true, that their mindset is different then ours, and given the opportunity to make good money and buy nice things, and advance their technology t...

Re: So I bought a PS3...

Oh yes, I just got done playing the Killzone 2 demo, and It was incredible. I know it's not about the graphics, but this thing is truly incredible. In some aspects like the incredible amount of dynamic lighting, it gives games like Crysis a run for their money. It's absolutely gorgeous. And all of t...

Re: Disneyland is totally awesome

No I knew you were talking about Disney in Cali, but that wasn't the point. The point was that if your planning on traveling to go to one of these parks, I'd recommend hitting up Universal in Orlando.

Re: New Compy Advice

you have to see one in person man. It's beautiful. The brushed aluminum looks great, but the most important thing I was trying to note was the build quality. These are absolutely rock solid, and tons of little details make this case great. The front bezel pops off effortlessly for working on drive b...

Re: New Compy Advice

The best cases for the price are Lian-Li cases. I have a PC-7b case that I paid $70 for. http://www.sundialmicro.com/images/products/items/pc7Bplus_main.jpg They don't have all that gaudy plastic and big Led strips, They are simple, elegant, absolutely gorgeous, and most importantly, built like a ta...

Re: Disneyland is totally awesome

Bah, Universal Studios/Islands of Adventure in Orlando, is way better. Don't waste your time with that Disney trash, go to a real movie theme park. Doctor Doom's fear fall trounces the Tower of Terror, and The Incredible Hulk is truly one of the best coasters ever! Also if you stay at one of the on ...

Let's not have a PC vs. console war here. Yes keyboard and mouse is a better scheme for FPS, and it does suck for almost everything else (excluding RTS') Console gamepads are great for everything but FPS, and they still work well enough. Some people like gamepads better for FPS, I don't understand t...

Resistance 2 was absolutely epic. It really surpassed the first game in almost every way. But unfortunately, that little bit that wasn't as good was somewhat of a deal breaker. The removal of the weapon wheel, the single coolest weapon change system on a console shooter, and allowing you to only car...
