The christmas present thread.Got my presents pretty dang early this year!
My family updated my airbrushing kit.

I now have:
a maintenance kit (Picks and brushes, as well as a cleaning jar)
A turntable
Some mutant 3rd hand. (With about 6 arms, this is sure to be useful)
And a fume hood.

I know it doesn't sound like much, but this is all stuff I've been needing to get. And that fume hood is pretty expensive!
I'm going to get a lot of use out of this stuff! :D
A modified coffee pot. (UGLY MOD AHOY!)


Likely the ugliest thing I've ever done. but, this thing works as intended.
Parts were extracted from a broken coffee pot. The timing functions still operate as intended, supplying power to whatever is connected to the electrical outlet I've installed in place of the heating element from the coffee pot.
Also, in case it isn't obvious, the tool of choice was a steak knife. the rest was hot glue.
Project Raspberry Pi Famicom.So, I'm still waiting for the circuit board to arrive, but I've gotten some preliminary work done on the shell.
Microswitches mounted to the Eject and Reset buttons so that they might serve a purpose, and USB jumpers mounted to the controller ports. (I am going to need to shorten those at some point.) A 3rd USB port is planned to be mounted inside the cartridge slot, but until I can get that planned out, the USB in controller slot 2 should work just as well.


If everything goes according to plan, this is all the cosmetic differences there will be.

I have ordered a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B to use inside this thing, and have already downloaded everything that I should need.
...It just needs to arrive...

The best part of waking up.
When Nite Gets Bored.So, you ever gotten so bored you just did some random crap?
...I have....


This actually took me a bit to program correctly into Construct to make it loop like this.


My assessment of Imgur, it's front page, and it's userbase.
Making my own airbrush paints using clear spraypaint.WARNING!
Neither I, nor Bibby Team, will not be held responsible for any damages cause by attempting to follow what I have posted here.
Methods used here can prove dangerous, and involve concentrating spray paint, mixing chemicals, and blatantly ignoring the warning label. Many chemicals involved can prove volatile, and I honestly have no idea what anything is going to react with, Care is required to prevent possible damage to your work, your home, or yourself.
ALWAYS wear a respirator when dealing with spray paint, or airbrush paints.
Fumes released are both toxic, and explosive. NEVER smoke, or spray paint near open flames

.
I'm surprised that I cannot find a tutorial on this anywhere online.
I found that if I take a can of spray paint, and set it to spray into a bottle, it will spray out the paint, and concentrate into the bottle.
I can then use this in my airbrushes.
This is done by taking the bottle you wish to spray the paint into dropping in a couple of mixing balls, covering the opening of the spray paint with the bottle, and gently pressing the spray button to release the paint.
The paint will concentrate slowly into the bottle. Due to the aresol used as a propellant, the paint is effectively carbonated. Adding anything can cause the liquid to rapidly release the aresol, and might make a mess, or over-inflate the container, causing rupture, or explosion. Be sure to occasionally bleed off the pressure from the mix to prevent container failure.

The rest is done by adding pigment powders. You can find these on places such as eBay.
I've also had success using cosmetic powder.
Use caution, as these hold potential to create a chemical reaction. I've already turned myself blue doing this once.
I have however found that diluting powder in a small amount of acetone can prevent reactions from occurring.

If successful, the resulting mixture is a usable paint, which is by trait compatible with other paints of the same brand line you used as the base.
A handy trick for getting a specific color, or effect, when it simply doesn't exist.

A farewell to my sound system.

Seems this setup is going to it's original owner.
For years I had this hooked up in my room, using it for TV and Video Games.
It's sad to see it go.
...How stupid do they think I am?
The FBI...apperently...

Office Of The Deputy Director,

Attention: Beneficiary,


The Federal Bureau of investigation in collaboration with the International Monetary Fund has discovered your over-due inheritance / contract payment of US$8,000,000.00 (Eight Million United States Dollars) in an escrow account in the Central Bank of Nigeria.


From the security report made available to us by the executive governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria in the person of Mr Godwin Emefiele, the funds are 100% real and have been approved for release to you, but a lady by the name of Mrs. Joan B Melvin of New York has already filed an application of claim at the Central Bank of Nigeria with a power of attorney and some official documents signed by you, which empowered her to claim the funds on your behalf due to your ill health.


In prospect of this, we have been recommended to warn US citizens who have received information pertaining to their outstanding inheritance / contract payment to be very careful, in order not to fall a victim of ugly circumstance. In case you are already dealing with some cruel officials of the Central Bank of Nigeria or other agency, you are strictly advised to STOP further communication with them in your best interest and thereby contact the governor's office of the Central Bank of Nigeria via the below details:


NAME: MR. GODWIN EMEFIELE
OFFICE ADDRESS: Central Bank of Nigeria,
Central Business District,
Cadastral Zone, Abuja, Federal.
Capital Territory, Nigeria.
Email: cenbnkng0015@aol.com


NOTE: You should ignore any message that does not come from the above email address and phone number for security reasons. And to enable the Central Bank of Nigeria process and release the fund to you, you are demanded to re-confirm your full details such as


FULL NAMES:
CITY:
STATE:
ZIP:
COUNTRY:
SEX:
AGE:
TELEPHONE NUMBER:


Ensure that you follow the Central Bank of Nigeria due process as enshrined in the International Banking Secrecy Act to avoid any form of discrepancy, which may hinder your fund transfer.


Thanks for your understanding and cooperation as we earnestly await your urgent reply.


Best Regards,
Andrew McCabe,
Federal Bureau of Investigation

So, apart from the glaring obvious crap.
The IP address 10.98.81.69 appears to be rather unique, in that I can't track it's origin.
I suppose there was bound to be one of these at some point.
The E-mail address appears to be located in Japan, as indicated by the ".jp" at the end of it.
Message ID being 20170702152846.02AF54E5922@msgw008-04.ocn.ad.jp, meaning it was sent from that country, by an ad driver.

This data directly contradicts the location they gave me.
On a few occasions actually.
they also decided to give an E-mail address to contact them which is not the one they sent from. This simply isn't common practice.

Is much as I wish I had that kind of money, it would be asking for a miracle. I'm also 100% certain that I am not related to anyone with that kind of money, either now, or anywhere in history.

The FBI won't send E-mails like this, or for that matter, AT ALL.

But the biggest thing that I really should note... The FBI doesn't do THIS...

One would need to be pretty uneducated to fall for this.
Seems I've made a new friend.
Ain't he cute?
I have no idea where he came from, but he decided to crawl up onto my tablet and perch himself on the CTRL key.
Seriously overkill frontlight mod for GBC.So, I got a kit to fix, restore, and add a frontlight to a Gameboy Color.
I cast the instruction manual aside, patched the frontlight directly to the batterer pack, at the point the towers are soldered to the front, ran far more wiring than I likely needed, and added a breaker switch to the middle of the unit, which I put in place by grinding a hole with a steak knife... Don't be fooled by the apparently bare wires in this thing though, I made sure that they were all secured and insulated, keeping them visible was an atheistic choice in my part.
I like to think of this as a: Total Chaos Hackjob.
