Hey, hey, hey... subby. Don't be giving out Ric Romero's patented reporting techniques. We have rules around here!

I love how one of them is "download some roms!" Thanks, lifehacker, I haven't known how to do that since like second grade.

What a ROM may have looked like when I was in second grade

You know what I get to make on my day off? My Japanese homework be finished, since I had a migraine all day yesterday.

Lifehacker is the biggest POS site I have ever had the misfortune to follow a link to. Followed by Jezebel, Jalopnik, Gizmodo, and whatever other sites these assholes have squeezed out.

The projects are mostly stolen from instructables.com

Over the years, I've complained about these websites taking other people's articles and posting them as their own. Now it seems they are devouring their own.
We've hit Peak Article, people.
In two years, they'll be nothing but tag clouds.

I like the "Turn your laptop into a touchscreen tablet" which is really "turn your laptop into a keyboardless POS driven by a mouse"

Funny how these articles get published. I had the afternoon off and my son needed an air conditioner. So, I got him the $88 model at Walmart. Trouble it, it's designed for a vertically closed window, and his apartment is a sliding horizontal closer. So, I bought 8ft ft of aluminized 4" dryer vent, a couple of house galvanized vents with 4" couplers, and two 4" dryer vent quick connect. With some sheet metal, I closed off the intake of outside air, and re-directed it through the bottom vent and made a frame in which I placed the other galvanized vent. Attached both to the aluminized accordion dryer vent house, took a vertical piece of house siding, drilled two 4" holes, and put the quick connects through them. The bottom is the intake, the top the exhaust. Plugged it in, and voila. I converted an $88 window air conditioner, into a portable air conditioner that only needs a very small opening which the sliding window closes against. No chance of the ac falling out the window, no extra bracket as it just sits on a small table, and it's totally portable. Parts $30+$88 for a grand total of $121 versus shelling out $300 for a small portable.

- I'm going to make this into an "Instructables" and post it on instructables.com if anyone else wants to try it.

Into a drip pan. Since it's on a small table, I could always put a small brass screw in nozzle into the drip hole, and attach a line that run into a catch pan. It works the other way just as well though.
