Rebuilt 3100 Engine

A freshly rebuilt engine, since rebuilding the existing one would have cost about $900, and this rebuilt engine ran about $1200.

Fourth Of July Fireworks

486 Microprocessor Keychain

486 Microprocessor Keychain

Ok, while browsing the local thrift stores for hackable electronics, I ran across this little guy in the keyring tray for 29 cents. :jawdrop:  I couldn't pass this up. I remember all the good times I had with our first x86 computer...

Various Meters

Again, at the Smiths Falls Amateur Radio Club Flea Market, I got a grab-bag of meters.

LED Bargraphs

LED Bargraphs

While at the Smiths Falls Amateur Radio Club Flea Market, I picked up three of these LED bargraph guys. I haven't tested yet to see what color they are, but that will come in time.

3/$2 isn't bad, if I can say so myself. 

RAC Polo Shirt

RAC Polo Shirt

Well, I went to the Smiths Falls Amateur Radio Club Flea Market, and one of the things I did there was renew my RAC membership, and buy this sleek Radio Amateurs of Canada polo shirt.

USB SD Card Adapter

USB SD Card Adapter

Ok, I got this set of 3 USB SD Card adapters from eBay seller flash-mart.

The picture shows the innards of one, and a full one. They come in multiple colors. They're nice because you can insert an SD card and put the cover back on. I'm thinking in particular about USB hard drives for the MSNTV2s with these.

Laptop Hard Drive Adapter

Laptop Hard Drive Adapter

Well, I got this one (a pack of 5) from eBay seller igozz.

See, this one's simple. You plug a laptop hard drive on one end, and an IDE cable and Molex power adapter on the other, and you have a working internal hard drive for your PC.
