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...

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:

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.


Frontlight on


Frontlight off


Frontlight on in complete darkness
Decided to try repairing a DMG-001... I did not see this comming.So, this was most certainly unexpected. I was inspecting the inside of a DMG-001 that I've owned since 1990, to see why the audio was gone before I go through with restoring it.
A suicide note from an assembly line worker came out from behind the metal plate behind the cartridge slot.



So...Yeah.... I don't think I felt like sleeping tonight anyway.
BattleBot Doom Deathmatch concept.So, this is a rough concept for something for fun that popped into my mind while chatting on Skype earlier today.
Due to how bots work in most Doom ports, this would all need to be handled on the host's computer.

The concept here is simple enough, all entrants program their own bot with all the stats outlined in https://wiki.zandronum.com/BOTINFO .
Accuracy, Intellect, Evade, Anticipation, Reactiontime, and Perception, all have a set amount of points you can distribute between them. (I still need to find a decent amount of points to set) The player is free to distribute these points as they see fit, so long as it does not exceed the maximum points allowed.
No restrictions for Chatfrequency, and should only be set at the entrant's own risk.

Once everything has been set, the player would then submit their bot to the host, to be inspected, then added.
After everyone who has entered has made their bot, and submitted it, the host starts the match.
Entrants are free to watch, as spectators to the fight. No humans allowed in the battlebot arena. (A password lock would prevent this from being a problem though)
After a set amount of matches, a winner is declared based on the final results of each fight.

So, it's a rough concept, but it seems like it would be simple enough to pull off.
Is time to cause some HAVOC!

I was bored, so I decided to load the Skulltag assets into brutal doom and start a deathmatch.
Saving 2 SNES cartridges.So, I found two circuit boards near the highway, after determining that they are rom boards for the SNES, I decided to see if I could get them fixed.
The results were better than expected, however cosmetically, they look like a couple of counterfeits.


This was just after the initial cleanup on both boards, and testing them to find out that they both are still in perfect working order! This came as a surprise, considering everything that could have possibly caused permanent damage to this things, near a HIGHWAY of all things.
The battery had been forcibly removed from one, which I had determined was Donkey Kong Country 2.


Street fighter 2.
Printed the label myself. It's not perfect, but it does it's job.


DKC2, just installed a new battery holder onto the board, and clicked in a CR2032 battery.
Save data works perfectly fine now, and the game plays exactly as it should! :D


Same deal as the SF2 label, however I took better care with applying this one.
It's still not perfect, and looks like a counterfeit, especially with the serial code referencing the wrong game, but it does it's job all the same. Took some trial and error to get the size right.


And of course, where would I be without the back warning label that nobody gives a crap about?

So, allnall, this project was a success. and much to my surprise, went off without a hitch.
I'm glad. I know it's not worth anything in it's current condition, but it's still a playable, legal, copy.

This is going to a friend, whom I know will give it the care it deserves.
