    A few hours before they fixed the price, people are getting shipment emails now, people who mass ordered them are not.
    I just ordered a single one (though a second one would be nice).

    But until someone gets it in their hands, I won't be holding my breath, not the first time dell has recalled shipped packages.

    One of my monitors broke the other day. Popped it open, blown capacitor. Replacements just arrived, soldering time!

    A ceramic capacitor went? That is impressive, though I suppose if the capacitor plague has mostly ran its course then it would be those again. If it is anything like some of the others I have seen do make sure its rated voltage is above that of the actual voltage the device uses and not just a direct replacement. One day I will bite the bullet and invest in a proper ESR meter again... though 8:42 might see a way for me to cheap out

    A home made wood turning lathe, I am not the biggest wood turner out there as turning wood is largely limited to pretty things rather than practical things like a metal lathe. However it runs true, the open(!) bearings are still good and for £10 and some scrapes on my arm as I dragged it back up the hill I am not complaining. Got some worm in it so going to have to treat it or make a new base which should be interesting as I am pretty sure the bolts holding it on have not been loosened in decades.

    Oh yeah and gaming forum so probably should so some game related stuff.

    PCB says 96 and mould markings point to a 7, and it is gameport so it should be a microsoft sidewinder 1.0 gamepad.
    It is probably going to be a wall hanger but for £1 I am not complaining. Might do a little evolution of microsoft controllers if I can find one of the original (not s) xbox controllers.

    of all the controllers you pick N64

    Still trying to find a wireless Gamecube controller. What makes the N64 controller so good? This concept looks neat
