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.

The screens come from Nokia 3310, 3330 and 3390, and have built-in Philips PCD8544 controllers.

Altoids Project Tin

Altoids Project Tin

Here's one of two Altoids cases that I purchased from a local discount store.. $1 each, with altoids and all. I must say, Cinnamon Altoids are stronger than the spicy candy hearts you get around Valentine's Day, but hey, it was all worth it.. For the case.

Parts from Digi-Key!

Parts from Digi-Key!

Ok, here's the batch of parts I received from Digi-Key for my C64 DTV.

I ordered case-mount parts so I wouldn't have to worry about making boards to mount the connectors.
