The Afternoon projects thread.

Post by themadhacker » Wed Apr 29, 2009 8:07 pm

Ok, so there has been a lot of talk about making one thread for simple afternoon projects, rather than a lot of topics for every single mini mod. However, nobody has made a thread yet. Until now.

Post anything that would not be worthy of its own topic. This includes switching out LEDs on game systems, gameboy overclockings, ghetto casemods, ect.

I have even made a first mod for the thread.

Presenting..... The gameboy LED flashlight.

Ok, so a few years back, I bout a zelda gameboy game, but the cart came cracked. The eeprom chip was cracked in half too, making the game useless. After seeing palmertech's pokemon crystal LED mod, I got an idea. I got two white LEDs, some resisors, and went to work. The end product ended up like this.


Image
The front of the cart. All the chips are removed from the inside, and as you can plainly see, I cut off the top half of the case and replaced it with hot glue and clear plastic.

Image
The cart inside of the gameboy.

Image
It lives!!! It looks way brighter in person, and in fact, it is very comparable to my storebought LED flashlight.


Now... Post mini mods!
rest in peace, Ronnie James Dio! \m/

I made this one afternoon because I was annoyed at my headphones since they were hurting my ears

Sweet speaker/ headphone things.

can a mod sticky this so that it doesn't sink to the bottom of the threads, making people forget about it and post mini mods in thier own topics?

Just a suggestion, if this takes off, then pictures should not be used in the [IMG] tags, Links should be good enough.

Screw that! Links are a royal PITA, especially since nobody direct-links.

If I hadn't just started my own thread I'd post here. But in my opinion having one thread is bad because you have to sift through pages upon pages to find one project. I think 1 project thread per user is a fair tradeoff (between this and one thread per project).

It's cool. I'm not making an "I'm leaving" thread, because I'm not. I'll just be focusing on other things.

if I leave, I won't be "gone". I will still be on to buy crap from the trading post, or to chat with my friends here, such as eurddrue. Occasionally I might post a completed project in the news. But hey, I said IF. that doesn't mean I am leaving. Me leaving all depends on my depression level, and if my projects work out (completed projects or repairs to things are really the only things that give me confidence and satisfaction).
rest in peace, Ronnie James Dio! \m/

I'm never going to leave. This is just where I spend my free time anyway.
