    Default Modder in the News - SXRguyinMA makes it onto Hack A Day

    A new story entry has been added:

    [drupal=558]Modder in the News - SXRguyinMA makes it onto Hack A Day[/drupal]


    By Colin Ormsby (slaveofconvention)

    The staff and members at TBCS would like to take this opportunity to congratulate our very own Will, aka SXRguyinMA on being featured by Hack A Day for his innovative top panel in his recently completed TempestSXR project. Want to know more - you can see the Hack A Day article here, and the full worklog of the project here.

    Again, our congratulations on this achievement, and thankyou to Snowman for bringing this to our attention!

    UPDATE: The good folks over at Lifehacker have also featured Will's work over on their site. Be sure to check it out here

    UPDATE 2: This mod is really making the rounds! Engadget published this article, and it can also be seen at [H]ard|OCP in this article.

    Thanks guys! I shot an email to the HAD guys telling them it was a neat PC+Arduino mod, and never heard anything. Guess they were too busy making the article

    I just saw this on lifehacker! Did you post this on TBCS? If so how did I miss it.

    Awesome mod dude, and kudos for the publicity.
