Well, as I said before, i was able to aquire a soldering gun about a week or so ago. Using it I repaired 3 controllers (one I sold for 10 bucks :p ), and made a frankenstein cable that combines an xbox breakaway cable (the part that actually plugs into the xbox) and a usb cable, and using some drivers I downloaded can now use my xbox controller as a pc controller (freakin sweet in halo).

But today I did my first ever all self done mod. Well, one with any challenge to it. I did an underglow mod. And lo and behold, after 3 hours of work (not my fault, dude sent me faulty leds, had to do half of it over), the fruits of my labor :D

*NOTE: It looks much better in real life :( *

Let me know what you think, my next mod is gonna be side vent leds :D

Hmmm. Nice.
Mine looks like a regular xbox... but since I can watch battlestar galactica and play chrono trigger on it I don't care. Its got a cool wallpaper and menu though... ;)

I really need to get around to fixing the mod-chip connections so i can connect it to Live without getting banned though.

Thats neat. Although the length I would goto to Mod my PS2 would probably involve no more than 2-3 stickers.
