What the hell am I reading? (Fowl Language Warning!)

I seem to be having some trouble pasting that in here. but be forewarned... this is pretty bad.
It's David Crooks talking about TotalBiscuit's death.
I would put this out there: You like someone or ya don't, but what do they hope to gain by kicking a dead man?
Slightly modified NES zapper

So, unfortunately the cord for this thing got severed at some point. (What a bummer! I loved this thing)
After a little bit of thinking, (About 5 minutes) I decided to take advantage of this to see if I could set up an interchangeable cable system. Simple enough concept: Ethernet couplers, and a cat5e cable.
The end result was actually a better success than I had expected. It works exactly as it should, plus I can interchange the cable for something longer if I wanted. (I also have an additional cat5e cable if I need one)
This was a simple modification. only requiring an ethernet coupler (Broken in half) some electrical tape, and some shrink tubing.
Whatever this thing is.

Yeah, I got bored and revamped this thing. Enjoy!
Lost in the labyrinth of fire, map generator test.

What I've come up with here is a simple map generator system, to create random mazes.
Not much, but playable to some extent. I still have a lot of kinks to work out of the system.
Arrow keys: Move
Z Key: Use key
X Key, Use bomb
1 Key: resize window (Work in progress)
Tab key: preposition window (Work in progress)
End key or returing to entrance: regenerate map
Alt+F4 to exit
Known bugs: Doors and rocks can spawn on top of each other
Doors and rocks can spawn on starting location
Exit spawns too close to entrance
Entrance and start are always the same
Previous maps are not stored into memory.
For the sake of this beta:
Bombs and keys are set to 9999 for testing reasons
Anyway, let me know if you come across anything else, as well as if you have any ideas for things to put in.
Please keep in mind when suggesting that everything is 100% random. Leaving me with very little control over where things are placed if this gets off the ground.
A flat tire extracted from a dryer.

So, okay, more real than random here, but I somehow still find this funny.
I recently fixed my dryer, here is a faulty part I extracted.
It's a rear drum support roller. Boy this thing was creating quite the racket too. Kind of a Bang! Bang! Bang!
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)
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!
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...
