      Me and my Brother have an inside joke right now where we both say Onions every time we see us during the day. He started with it probably because out of boredom and I just started doing it aswell 'cause Onions.

  3. I strongly recommend Spigen phone cases. I've had them for my (now dead) Mate 9 and  my current Pixel 3 XL. They're pretty  slim and don't add a lot of thickness to the phone, and they're some of the best cases I've witnessed at surviving impacts. I cannot tell you how many times I've dropped my phone, only to have that case save it.

      @Letgomyleghoeyeah I learned my lesson about buying Otterbox cases a long time ago. They're way overpriced, usually make holding your phone feel like holding a brick, break super easily, and from my experience don't offer any more protection than a much cheaper low-profile case like Spigen.

      I had one for my moto g5 plus and it survived a 9 ft drop. not a dent or scratch. 

      I am now using it on my samsung s10.

      Yeah I have gone through a few otterbox cases (never broken a device in them though) 

      Im currently using rhinoshield and so far it is holding up pretty well plus the ability to change parts and make it either a full back or just rim is pretty cool

Neither me nor any other members of The  IT Club want to see your NSFW My Little Pony desktop wallpaper that induces involuntary projectile vomiting and bursting aneurysms. 

     

    BTW--the keyboard was sticky, and the inside was...also sticky. I wore gloves  on that one.

      To be honest, a MLP wallpaper that's NSFW doesn't sound that bad compared to some of the things I've found before. One customer of mine left a CD-R in their laptop that was filled with pictures of herself.

      @ProjectBox153Oooh, are we sharing stories now? I have two:

       

      - That same computer had a Word document solely consisting  of links to some of the most hideous pornography-related subreddits. I didn't click on the links, but...reading the names and brief descriptions  that  the owner left was almost traumatizing.

       

      - On a happier note (for me, at least), the previous owner of a donated laptop left a DVD  of a copy of  The Sims 3 in the disc drive.

      I have some stories that I can't even share here as I would probably violate the community standards. When you work with computers that various people own you see a lot of stuff. On the bright side at least I've been able to find pictures for people from their broken computers. That's always nice.

      Things get funny when you approach badly/not documented things and computational accuracy.

  6. Found this video--they basically put a Slotket in an original Xbox and slapped a 1.4 GHz Tuatlin  processor in it, as well as soldering on more memory:

      @Letgomyleghoe Do you have an OG Xbox 360 or a 360 S? If it's the original Xbox 360, it's more likely to be prone to overheating issues. I'd recommend a repasting for either model, but both models are difficult to open.

    3. Letgomyleghoe

      Letgomyleghoe

      xbox 360 s, I didn't have the right size screwdriver to remove the cpu cooler so I couldn't do that,  but I pulled the whole thing apart and cleaned it out, It had less dust in it then my pc surprisingly, next thing will be repasting.

      EDIT: the disk reader got broken too, it's not 100% broken but got knocked, I'm probably going to replace that as well.
      I have so many childhood memories on this thing, probably the only reason I'm trying to save it, I hardly play on it.

      @LetgomyleghoeI wish you  luck  on your next  Xbox servicing! However, there  are three things you may want to  know:

       

      - After removing the  CPU screws,  the X-bracket needs to   be pried off in a specific manner (it's  quite easy, iFixit has a guide for it)

       

      - If you're adventurous and have a really sharp, thin object, you can try delidding the CPU. I delidded mine successfully with an iFixit Jimmy tool. There are surface-mounted components  around the two dies  (XCGPU + eDRAM) though, so if   you want to consider delidding, I can dig  up some photos so you know where they are.

       

      - The  optical drive controller board is paired to the motherboard, and the  Xbox 36t0 has multiple models of internal disc drives. I'm not sure if the control board is soldered onto anything, but make sure you get a replacement ODD that's an identical model as the one in  your 360, and transplant your  controller board onto  it.
