Arduino in a box, originally uploaded by JohnEdgarPark.

I found a little cardboard and foil box that fit my Arduino perfectly. I cut a little space for the USB cable to plug in and mounted it onto the fuzzy plastic stand inside with a couple of nuts and bolts.

Bike repair, originally uploaded by JohnEdgarPark.

I just fixed my lovely wife’s bike. The Lycra that covered her seat had turned to dust, as had the tire sidewalls. The rear tube need replacing, the chain needed lubing, and most other things needed general tuning.

TGIMBOEJ adds

These are a few of the things I added to the box named Rangoon before sending it. My favorites:

  • RF wireless mic which I used as a bug to spy on my sister when I was 13 years old.
  • DTMF telephone dialer that I thought I should have back when phone phreaking was awesome.
  • Gigantic universal remote with touch screen.
  • PlayStation 1 modchip.

Silvia and Eddie’s espresso repair

My sister Silvia and her husband Eddie had an espresso machine on the fritz. They were even reduced to using a stovetop Bialetti for a while (no offense moka lovers!). Like the true do-it-yourselfers that they are, they pulled it apart, found a corroded circuit board, and replaced it. Click the link for the full story.
