Happy New Year Extra


Goodbye 1167627600 -1199167140 1199163540.

[Justin] is having fun telling everyone that an exploit has been found for the Archos 605 media player. The hack gets you remote root access on the player… need I say more?

[Gene] sent in his polar coordinate based LEGO 3d printer. He’s still working on the driver end, but it’s an interesting project.

[Kyle] sent in the gutting of his flip video camera.

Need some new storage? [forrest] sent in his price/GB price comparison script. It scrapes New Egg and graphs out the results.

Despite the link on our old post being dead, [Txoof] built his own CCFL macro light from a dead laptop LCD.

[Dan] sent in his LED cube matrix. The LEDs are wired in a matrix, so he can actually address them individually.

  1. The price comparison script is just plain cool. I wish I’d thought of that instead of spending hours looking for the cheapest £/gb for a large RAID array.

    Just need to mod it to work in £’s, search multiple sites, and add postage cost in and it’d be perfect.

  2. @5 those are unix time stamps.
    1167627600 = 00.00 01/01/07
    1199167140 = 00.59 01/01/08
    I think he made a mistake or I copied them wrong.
    It should be 1199163540.
    They are seconds from epoch (1= 7.00 31/12/69 )
