Get a cree X-lamp instead. It's 176 lumens at one amp (4 watts). That's brighter than a Luxeon V with lower power consuption, and therefore less heat. Though I'm not sure how much heatsinking you'd need for it. I have a Luxeon III flashlight (maglite) that has a really small heatsink that overheats ...

I remember when I got half-life 2 and I had to update steam with dial-up... that was horrible! My connection kept timing out and it took like 2 days to finish it. But I love steam now that I have DSL. But I hardly ever play, and if it is it's HL2: DM or Garry's Mod.

Well, I glued it back together with epoxy, but while it was drying two of the battery contacts got stuck together. I geuss I'll just make another one in an altoids tin, since I have a few of those laying around. And I'll take the battery contacts from the hummer I got last night. At least it'll be e...

Where do you buy duracell recharables from, anyway?

I tore it apart and retaped the inside, and I'm going to put it back together (with epoxy this time) once I find my epoxy. Hopefully that won't melt and short out.

@turbo tax: that battery looks pretty nice. I might get one of those. I used rechargable batteries, actually. Though 6 volts would probably work, I'm too paranoid about my PSP. When I went to school today, I left the thing in my backpack charging my psp. But something made it short out while it was ...

Homemade PSP external battery

This is a simple little project that I just did in about 15 minutes. Basically, I just put 4 AAs in a zippo tin and soldered it to a PSP charging cable. Amazing Features! -compact -uses standard AA batteries -held together by hot glue -batteries are placed in backwards (I soldered it wrong) -electri...

That should be possible since they had to unpack the original file to distribute the program... Also, there seems to be a switch for transparency, as displayed by one of the ones I downloaded. I'd like to find this as well. Thanks Ari. Time to make something cool! You're welcome, Mageslayer. Glad I ...

I know how to change the color and speed! For the speed, there are 2 instances where it says "speed1.max", and you can just change the 1 to any value from 1 to 9. For color, there's a section that says 000111222333444555666777888. Each set of 3 digits corrosponds to one line, and you change the digi...

Is there any way to get rid of the PSP logo laid over the gameboot in 3.10 oe? The only way I know of doing it is in Xflash, and that doesn't work in 3.10.

I don't know much of anything about ipods, but it should work on 3 rechargable AAs. I'm geussing it uses 3.6 volts and it'll probably work down to about 3 and up to 4. But it sounds like a good idea. Somebody did that with the PSP (using alkaline AAAs) and it worked fine.
