Some projects update

As you may remembered I started with a Litago Zune dock a while a go, and now I’m coming to and end. I sprayed some white over it all yesterday, and next step is to spray the Zune logo on the side.

I didn’t want a complete color, so went with black background and then I’d “throw” white spray over it.

My next porject is a very new one. So new, that I started with it yesterday. The idea is to make my Sponster doodle into an figure. So I tried to make the skeleton with bamboo sticks, but think I need something more powerful. So going to buy ironthread and clay today.

Last week I told you I had started a project I would tell more about on Saturday, sadly I didn’t come that far in the process. So before you all forget it, I just wanted to tell you what it is I’m making beisdes all my other projects. I’m going to sew my own one-piece. I’m now working on the test suit (see if everything fits on me). Going to post a picture of it when I’m done with that. As I’m new to sewing, everything is going really slow, plus I’m also busy with other stuff.

My work and a cool post stamp

Sorry for the mess with the pictures, but something went wrong. “Anywho”, I’ve got my book which I forgot in Poland in the mail today. Look at the cool post stamp! I’m also done with the “technical” with my new Zune LitagoCow dock. Planning on spraying it black and painting the Zune logo on it. I’m also nearly done with my Vimobot with an USB inside, didn’t end up the way I wanted. It’s too heavy! So not sure if I’m going to “mass-product” it. I also took two pictures of my test Munny head and it’s webcam body.

A busy exam time…

It is a busy exam time. As I’m trying to do everything else i usually do (and more) plus read for the double exam next time, I get less and less sleep. Too bad we are so needy about it. “Anywho”, started the day of with a call from my brother about how I should hook up my new Zune to my TV (which didn’t help, but more about it further down). Then I got up and ate breakfast. Nearly the best meal of the day, it’s hard to beat brinner! But I love me some slice of bread! So after that I went to school, but needed to stop by some shops on the way so ended up using nearly two hours wandering around looking at games. Bought “Mannen som elsket Yngve” and “Xgames Pro Boarder”. Starting to get a little stack of Playstation games now, more than twenty. Better start playing them soon. So finally I ended up on school. Started slowly on my test exam. They are so boring and hard. Why can’t test be more easy! I don’t take this course to learn, I just need the ten points. It wasn’t all boring at school on a Saturday, because after a while I went with a friend of mine to another building to make us some food. And after we where done, she wanted to heat her bun (no pun intended) for ten seconds, but she forgot all about it. So suddenly we heard a ding (as when the micro oven is done), and there where coming smoke out of the oven. The bun had taken fire! So then the fire alarm went of and thing when crazy! People where running around, throwing stuff, breaking windows! Some even started loathing! Nah, just kidding. The alarm did went of, but there where like three others in the building so no biggi. Sadly the firemen had to head out (jerk out didn’t quiet fit here). Since the room was “intoxicated” we switched building again.

Finally I got home, and I was planning to continue with the test exam, but no. Ended up reading the latest “GameReactor” and surfing ebay. There is a lot of awesome things to buy! After I’m done with the bloging I’m going to play some Modern Warfare 2!

So about the Zune HD hook up to my TV. First I thought I needed an usb recharger (which costed  around 20$) which I could hook up to the outlet. That didn’t work, so thought maybe I need an adapter, because _maybe_ the ac adapter that was with the docking station had some fancy stuff in it. So used another 18$, and that didn’t work out either. Then I finally did something clever and googled the problem. Found out that I only needed to restart the play when this problem I experienced occurred. Couldn’t someone told me this 38$ ago? Hopefully I learned my lesson.

Oh, btw… I now I’ve mention before that I love following links everywhere to see where it goes, and today I spent at least one hour doing just that going from one Norwegian blog to another. It started out that I tried this Twitter “test”, to find out who was my first follower (@tanketom for the link). Found out that it was @pumbaaa which I new. Then I started wondering who this person was (not the first time), so I started to look at pumbaaa followers. First I ended up here where I learned that “Sprite Lip smacker” tastes and smell like shit. Good to now. Did find out some other interesting things, but can’t find the link so sorry. Take a look at this either, wehearthit.com so ended up at a Hello Kitty store.

My brother linked me about an Island called Hashima. Just makes me wanna go to Japan even more!  Some more pictures here.

PSOne, it’s so small…

Finally got my PSOne in the mail. Guess I’ve been waiting for it for nearly a month. I did now that I wouldn’t get it right away, because after I bought it. The seller found out it was broken, so he needed to get another one for me. “Anywho”, now I have it. And it’s a lot smaller than I imagined. Hoping to have time to test it tomorrow. He also sent some extra games since it was delayed. Took some pictures of it all.

I’ve also been testing my Zune HD more today, this one is also smaller that I thought, but I’m getting used to it. Sadly I can’t use the browser at school. So no surfing in class. Guess thats a good thing. I also tried Little Big Planet on the PSP today. Not for a long time, but it looks promising.

New ZuneHD!

My brother got home from New York today (he had been there with his girlfriend), so I finally got a ZuneHD! Haven’t played that much with it. Been busy with school and friend, but soon everything is synced with it and ready to go. Sadly I need to get to bed very soon! Getting tired and it’s over two o’clock. “Anywho”, I was supriesed that it looks so much smaller than my older Zune (it’s mostly thinner). Other then that it’s very light and feel awesome in my hand! As I haven’t really tried it out, other than checking out my blog on it while I was on the bathroom, I can’t tell you much. Will try it out in the next few days and come back with more info. Btw, I also got some new PSP games; Loco Roco, N+, Little Big Planet and ATV Offroad Fury: Blazin’ Trails

Oh, had a friend over playing some Super Smash Bros. on the Gamecube today. Was super awesome! We’re planning a compo with more people. Going to be the bomb!

Fixing my broken Zune

Last night my screen lock on the Zune suddenly stopped working. I couldn’t put my Zune in locked my. As it was late last night, I didn’t care to look much on it, and I also didn’t have time to check it out before I went to work. So I goggeled the problem at work and tried to find some easy way to fix it. That was hard than I thought. It didn’t look like this was a common problem. Which is kinda a good thing. “Anywho”, I read somewhere that one person had found out that his lock screen button was pushed too far down, so I thought maybe that was my problem too. It was not. And when I got home I found out that the lock button was very loose, and after one attempt to remove it with I knife, I found out that a little piece under neath it, was broken off. Hence the problem with getting the locking mechanism to work when I slided it back and forth. Luckily, all I had to do, was to turn the button 180 degrees and put it back. And know it works like before! Hurray!

Zune HD, what you need to know?!

So, we’re getting a new Zune this fall! A HD Zune, how cool is that going to be?! There is already a lot of picture and a video of this super awesome MP3 player. We’re finally also getting a browser to search the web with! Sweet! Can’t wait. Too bad it won’t be released in Norway. So need to get in touch with my foreign friends. I want a silver one!
