… I mean, a newly rekindled one.
I’ve always liked to pull shit apart, and every now and then neglect to put things back together. But lately, I’ve been pulling so much crap apart it’s not even funny – yesterday was the fridge, today the lawn mower… my paintball gun is in pieces (though admittedly I’m going to have a go at home anodizing at some point in the future, and I’ve got a lot of work to do to get it ready to play with this summer), there’s a dead Gorilla Amplifier on my desk and there’s not one but two dead treadmills in our room.
Thankfully I’m little by little re-acquiring the tools needed to put some of this crap back together. I have a 10 item eBay watch-list and a shopping list on Mouser for all the stuff needed to restore my paintball gun to it’s full glory – when I’m done with it, it’ll be a jet black anodized, custom electronics, low-pressure blow-back paintball gun. Wooh!
I bought a lot of probes for my multimeter which should be here sometime this week, along with a bunch more RJ-45 heads… we’ve been buying them from Lowes’ as we need them for about 50c a piece (~$5 for 10 of them) and I picked up a lot of 100 on eBay for ~$3, so I can’t wait till those get here.
I still have a nice soldering iron on my list of things to buy, but that’ll have to wait until after Duncan gets here and we see how our finances are.
