Since I haven’t been very good about keeping this up after the first thread, it might be fun to have a perpetual non-themed thread the way we did in old SB. We can still do themed threads as well, of course.
I’ll start with a photo that I took recently of the inside of my Commodore 64 computer. I’ve had it since I was about twelve years old, and it was still in working condition (I think) until it was ruined in a flood in 2016.
So I took it apart, threw away the innards, and cleaned the case. It’s now sitting on my shelf. I took several photos of the circuitry and things, and I especially liked these colorful wire casings.
I also had the idea of connecting the power light to a battery so that it would stay on all the time. So I grabbed a 9-volt battery and touched the wires to it. And you may have already guessed that it lit up only for a second. I realized too late that I had not been wise in my battery choice.
The light was a standard size, so I figured it would be easy to get another one. Since Radio Shack no longer exists, I looked online. All I could find were large packs, and I only needed one. I called a neighbor who I suspected would have some. And he did, in several colors. He also had resistors. I don’t really know what I’m doing, but I still plan to follow through with my light project. Maybe even today, now that I’m thinking about it again.
(Note: A boring story is not required to post a photo in this thread.)
