How Too: make a bluetooth glove



Before you begin be warned that this is although very cool it is totally useless unless you waterproof the fingertips and the PCB and make a simple pad for the tactile interface (the switch) near the wrist or directly under the fingers as seen in the video. It is also wise to extend the Bluetooth active LED and place it within an eyelet housing on an inconspicuous part of the glove as well as making a Velcro opening at a seam so you can recharge the unit.

it cheap its cool and when combined with the spy cam hat (see previous how too's) can be enough to get you thrown our of pretty much any and every public area in town.

enjoy!

WARNING!
use of this device can and will make you look like a total idiot even after you explain what you are doing and demonstrate it functioning but luckily no more than a regular bluetooth headset.

Daily Blogg: i can quit...



...i just don't wanna. Yes im still playing WoW and although it has yet to get to this stage (see pic) i have noticed myself spending frankly disturbing amounts of time in front of my PC only stopping for long enough to refill the mini fridge with Red bull and processed meat products.

So as of today im limiting myself back down to no more that three sessions per day of no more than two hours at a time. Raiding simply does not count regardless of the raid content...this is not an excuse for me to live in a raid location but i have moved in beside Onyxia and although she is a bitch of a room mate i have found that beating the living crap out her solo is shits and giggles.

Depressing how much you can pimp some lowbies with onyxia gear these days.

wait did i just refer to a Lv 60 as a lowbie? oh bloody hell....

Movie Night: Forbidden Kingdom 2008



A very very VERY late movie night tonight in the form of the a martial arts epic with the gods of kung fu Jackie Chan and Jet Li!!!

South Boston teenager Jason Tripitikas (Michael Angarano) awakens from a dream of a battle between the Monkey King Sun Wukong (Jet Li) and heavenly soldiers amongst the clouds. He is a fan of kung fu movies; posters cover the walls of his room, and on his TV is the 1966 Hong Kong film "Monkey Goes West". After getting dressed, he makes his way to a pawn shop in downtown Boston's China town to buy wuxia DVDs. There, Jason converses with Hop (a prosthetics-laden Jackie Chan), the shop's elderly owner, and, while thumbing through some DVDs, he is drawn to a golden staff inside a room full of antiques. Hop tells him that the staff is to be delivered to its rightful owner and then closes the door.

On his way back home, Jason is attacked by local bully Lupo (Morgan Benoit) and his cronies, who force him to go back to the pawnshop at night so that Hop will open the door, allowing them to steal his money. Feeling betrayed, Hop tries to attack the thieves with the staff, but is shot by Lupo. Hop, wounded, tells Jason that Jason must now deliver the staff to its rightful owner. Jason takes the staff and runs from the thieves. On top of a building, he is surrounded by the bullies, as Lupo fears that Jason will expose the shooting to the police and intends to silence him. Before Lupo can shoot, Jason is suddenly pulled off the roof by the staff and falls backwards onto the asphalt, and through time.

As he awakens in ancient China he is confronted by a small group of armored warriors who recognize the staff and attempt to take it from him....and....

....that's where im cutting you off folks as frankly i think I have spoiled enough of the flick.
so sit back relax grab your (by now very stale) popcorn and enjoy the movie.
