Mac Classic Desktop - MacBook Pro mod

When my MacBook Pro 13” logicboard started to fail, I bought a new machine, but was left with what to do with it. So I decided to get a little creative and make a mod machine.

The logicboard has been assembled in a Apple Disk Drive casing, I tried to solder a power switch to the motherboard, ruining a few of the powerpads in the process, so ended up drilling a hole in the top of the casing and powering it on by using a paperclip on the powerpads.

I haven’t quite finished, as the fan runs at full speed the whole time, I’m guessing due to all the missing components that are meant to be connected (LCD screen, Bluetooth, speakers, wifi, optical drive) and have read that it is the default setting for the logicboard. I would also like to install some kind of slot load system into the front of the machine via a hdd caddy I had in my macbook.

Not sure of what I will use it for, but was fun getting it to go.

The Man Who Laughed (1928)

A work mate told me about this movie when we were talking about people who looked like the Joker from Batman.
It’s about an orphan boy from the 17th Century who is given grotesque surgury to give him a perminent smile to become court jester for King James II. He is abandoned and becomes a part of a traveling sideshow. I enjoyed it, it mainly made me want to be a film extra in the 1920’s, they’re just so over the top it’s awesome. My favourite part had to be where the main characters dog came out of nowhere and mauled a guy to death, good work 1920’s.
