hackaday links


the links are back and are aplenty after a rainy weekend. let’s get down and dirty with what you guys sent over the weekend and what shines the prettiest.

nothing like old 1900-esque wooden knobs for your devices [seesoe]

nothing new except it’s a full size IDE drive. bigger is better? [calvin]
googletalk making a comeback? we’ll see. [thomas]
who could resist a gingerbread server… [barbobot]
if you dig telephones, mice, and are desperate: seek refuge here [John]
making a fox turn into a bot [max s.]
spuds ahoy [carson]

and our man [patriko] says to hell with tv-b-gone and to check this out. we agree.

    I just made the green hornet about 3 weeks ago. It does have some kick to it. Furthest I’ve gotten a spud to go was roughly 300 yards. Be sure to check it out.

    I think you have to program those remote keychains with the remote for your TV. You can’t just use one on any random TV you find in public.

    Uhh, that remote is about 4 years old. Radioshack cobranded. I have one. Finding batteries for it sucks, and you need to carry around the code list to have any fun. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B0001KHRKU/qid=1115061620/sr=8-1/ref=pd_csp_1/002-8880817-3284014?v=glance&n=507846 is even better. You can have two tvs program at the same time, and has chanel back, overall better. Also radioshack cobranded

    Not that the original wouldn’t deserve a comeback as well ;)
