1. Finally made it comfortable to type at, and it gave me more space overall. I liked the TV in the corner, but that whole setup just hurt my back more than I had liked. There's a Nintendo Switch behind that 15" monitor. The monitor is USB-powered, and is a fully portable monitor that I can take...
  2. My larger 7" screen looks so much better, and it actually has a nice black acrylic frame to blend in better. Hides my sound card and ugly video card too. But instead of a Raspberry Pi 3, I just set this up under Windows as a second display, and used AIDA64 Extreme to make the sensor panel. I...
  3. As we were shopping for this shit on amazon, the prices kept going up with each refresh of the page, it was ridiculous! Glad we got some to last us through this bullshit again. [ATTACH]
  4. I hope it's not the typical issue for most people. Hopefully this is just a circumstantial fluke, like his room was already hot or something. [ATTACH]
  5. But this time, I made it using AIDA64 Extreme. I followed some steps in one of JayzTwoCents' recent videos. It's on my 1920x1080p side monitor. This shit is time consuming, lol. [ATTACH]
  6. It's using the MoBro software made by ModBro. The theme came with it too, and looks really cool. (I know my CPU temp is high, it was on purpose so I could see more green bar.) I'll be upgrading this to a 7" Waveshare screen in the future when I get working again, but it works for now....
  7. Here's my development workstation. It's a cheap HP laptop I got from Walmart last Black Friday in 2019, and two SSDs over USB. [ATTACH] [ATTACH] [ATTACH] The laptops specs are modified from the original, as I've done some upgrades: Ryzen 3200U dual-core CPU Radeon Vega 3 graphics, taking 2GB...
  8. So I went to Home Depot and Ikea yesterday and got everything I needed to make some indirect LED lighting for under $50. Just an LED strip of "warm white" LEDs, some double-sided clear Gorilla tape, and some cheap crown moulding. Used a wood saw to manually cut the ends at a perfect 45° angle...
  9. My girlfriend was buying parts for me to build her a new gaming PC, and she was kind enough to give me a case and more RAM as a 'thank you'. So here's my new gaming PC, fleshed out in RGB. I also added a USB 3.0 hub on the back, since the case window faces me and ports on the front and back are...
  10. I'm thinking of flashing them and selling them for $20 USD each, especially to online gaming communities. Minecraft, Warcraft, Team Fortress 2, etc all have servers where if you stand around too long, you get kicked off the server. Well this device fixes that. Let's say you're balls deep into a...
  11. [ATTACH] I did the custom joycons and pro controller mods myself. The morning motor is portable and powered by USB. Makes for a sweet setup that collapses down into a backpack and sets up quickly for motel stays.
  12. So my stupid ass got a little too rough with a razor blade, and not only lifted the entire solder pad of the (green) Data+ line, but peeled the trace back too. And I can't confirm any test points for me to solder to via Google or YouTube. The data lines just sort of, stop. And they don't have...
  13. My brother just died today in a fatal car accident on his way to work. It's suspected that he had a seizure, and floored the gas pedal. He ended up taking out a power pole with just his Acura Integra. My family is suffering this great loss very unexpectedly. He left behind a wife, and a 13 year...
  14. In April of 2019, I lost my grandmother to cancer. She was in remission, but slipped and fell down her stairs and suffered a pretty bad head injury. She was put into a medically induced coma to hopefully have her body focus on healing, but instead, the cancer took her life just two short days...
