This will get a much longer writeup but I've been fixing up a broken PXL-2000 that records video to cassette tape. RF output didn't work so I performed a composite video mod. Then the lens assembly was wonky so I modified that. Soon I'll add some RCA connectors and clean heads.

Got some VictorMaxx StuntMaster headsets from the '90s and they're fairly easy to hook up to power, composite video, and audio when you don't have original cables. They are definitely just cheap HMDs, but they have novelty.

Replacing my iPod's logic board. The only original components left are the case, display, and click wheel at this point.

My Raspberry Pi PBX now runs through 10base5 thicknet because why not?
