Closure: NEW PORTABLE

Post by Kurt_ » Tue Jun 05, 2007 7:37 pm

This post doesn't say much. The site does. Go to the site!

360 spin. Great fun. http://alkaspace.com/spin.php?fid=2793&close=1 (I know one of the pictures is blurry. I'm not about to redo that.

All the write up can be viewed on my new site here (don't forget to click ads! 10 cents per click for me!) http://projects.kurt.googlepages.com/

View my site!

Leave some comments. This is my first portable, and I'm very proud of it. It feels good to be done. AND I get a title!

Dude, AWESOME portable! :D So, was it worth the wait? :lol:

Though I was wondering one thing: Where's the volume and brightness controls?

All the information is on the site. The volume is a slide on the back because the internal one fried awhile back, and brightness is cranked, because I don't think I'd ever touch it. It did have a battery gauge but that fried soon before I finished the guts and it doesn't matter that much. As for the wait, you were the one waiting.

Although it was only a week.
It's been "give me a week" since November 2005. And I can't help it that you can't keep your days straight. It was a week.

This was the only portable that has a seamless design that I know of, too.

Nice, seems similar to the L64.
I don't think Google likes you to tell how much you get paid for their ads, though. :wink:

Very professional looking project, well done. Is the D-pad slightly at a skew?

Really nice!

8) Sexy, man! Totally worth the wait.

Hopefully this is a kick in the ass for a bunch of other people to finish their portables, I know it's one for me!

EDIT: I clicked an AdSense, you earned that 10 cents. :P

Thanks all. And yes, the d-pad is kind of crooked, but it's not that bad. Speakerholes were made of high-quality computer board, then turned 45 degrees. I like them a lot.
