It’s Here!

I was beginning to hash out some processing stuff, and then this arrives on my doorstep.

Tape + A Single Layer of Bubble Wrap = Internationally Shipped Package

Needless to say, I was scared as hell at the very sight of this thing.
(please, please, please… don’t be broken…)

So Far, So Good.. And it\'s even the right one!

Everything looks good with the powerbase, and lets hope that everything is fine internally.

Silently preparing to unleash its glorious data.

Pretty thankful that they included this...

From what I can tell, this thing has an amazing amount of functionality… I really can’t believe that they stopped making these models. Instead of further developing the awesomeness that they had going for them they completely chopped these bases apart.

$%!# @#$#!!!..

Of Course it’s always something… Although, this is something that I could have foreseen, but didn’t even cross my mind until I was staring right at the alien plug. (Yeah no matter what you do derek… that thing isn’t going into the wall socket today or any other day…)

Although this isn’t nearly as big of a problem as say… trying to find a discontinued product in the UK, it still puts a small damper in things for the time being. But I think I might have a quick solution lurking in the piles of electronics in the basement…. Otherwise I’m on a city-wide search for a 12 Volt 2.5 Amp power supply.

More news tomorrow.

    Man, that first picture looks awfully suspicious. What an odd-shaped thing to make it from somewhere in England to somewhere in WI.

    Look forward to hearing more about it later today.
