@bclindner what the fuck. does this work??
@Aleums probably, but i really would not want to try it
@bclindner you mistyped "really smart"
@claudiom @bclindner years ago when I was still podcasting we had a massive equipment failure and had to use my friend's iPhone as our media player for the intro and outro songs plus the music. I remember all of the jacks I had wouldn't fit into the 1/8th in input on my friend's phone so I had to cut one open and remove all of the material that was in the way.
@bclindner I honestly love it
@bclindner oh that’s epic
Now that's a hack if I ever saw one. Salute!
@bclindner Oh my god
@bclindner Looks alright to me.
@bclindner way more sexy than a jack
@bclindner totally reasonable imo. i've had a Sansui stereo that actually had the amp output wired straight into the input, on purpose. if you want to put something between that, you take out the big heavy wire.
@bclindner this looks like a lot of my room when I was young, I won't say how I added outlets to my room
@bclindner @zardoz No joke, in high school I once got a paperclip from a hotel front desk and then rigged up something very similar to connect two RCA video sockets together in place of a proper cable with plugs on each end, because I had a VGA-RCA converter with me but no cable to plug it into the TV.
It worked great, and we watched Half Baked and had a great time, despite not being the least bit stoned 😂
@bclindner Ho ! Ça ressemble à un ampli basse Fender, BXR pour être précis. Non ?
Wenn's doch funzt. ;-)
@bclindner it just works
@bclindner this is deeply upsetting
@bclindner took a moment to realize that this wasn't some strangely shaped thing stuck into an induction heater
@bclindner nice hack
@bclindner This is beautiful.
@bclindner " Best Hardware Hack of the Year "
@bclindner this is utterly brilliant and i will be liberating it for future dirty hackery. thanks!
That is some next level fuckery right there! Brilliant stereo compromise 🤣😻
@bclindner not at all, this is brilliant
@bclindner i did something similar with bread ties once in 2017 to plug my then-roommate's Wii into my speaker. i was using the Wii to test my monochrome green crt
@bclindner This is the most aesthetically pleasing cursed electronics job I've ever seen. This is amazing. It finds that fine line between the cursed electronics work you often see that's horrible, a safety hazard, or both, and clean, professional electronics work. This is art. Cursed, but art nevertheless.
@bclindner honestly i have done this before
@bclindner I don't know if I should admire the inventivity or loath the ugliness...
@bclindner this looks like more stable and better documented solution than many a software thing that i had to debug in production…
C'est quoi? :o
