Thanks, Seth. I always have been, and the older I get, the better I get at it. Growing up, I was always "that kid" who was more interested in disassembling his toys to figure out how they worked versus actually playing with them, lol. I can't stand to throw stuff out because it's marginally broken and can be fixed with a little bit of determination and know how. I'm as fiscally and socially conservative as anyone I know, but, I really don't like how we live in a throw-away culture these days. Everything is either designed to not be fixable (like all of Apple's current stuff -- that's part of their marketing -- "sorry we can't fix it, but would you like to buy the new model to replace your two year old computer?") , or, if it is, it costs more to fix than to buy a new one. With all the electronics that drive our modern world, the sheer amount of e-waste that Apple, Samsung, etc., and the users of their products generate is staggering, and it is a major, highly toxic pollutant. The older I get, the more conscious I become of the crappy condition we're leaving this little blue globe in for our kids and grand kids. I'll get off my soapbox now
Fantastic work, Kirk! I love your DIY skills. Your thrift is commendable as well. U have encouraged me to hold-off throwing away my spare aquarium gear.
That's pretty similar to the one I fixed. Mine is an Ozotech Poseidon 303. However, I've got too much of my own old stuff and don't want to make my garage look any more like "Sanford and Son" than it already does . I'll gladly fix it for you, though, if you'd like...but you have to take it back.
Looking good but you should probably go ahead and test out the camera on the center and right as well.
