After considering it for ages I finally dared to mod my volca beat and solder a capacitor on the (in)famous C78 solder point, to fix the snare sound.
The solder pads are REALLY tiny and solding smd stuff is WAAAAY outside my comfort-zone, but it was totaly worth it. The snare sounds a lot more 808-ty and I really like it.
Unfortunately I forgot to shorten the wires on the capacitor as you can see in the photo, so I used a bit of tape to prevent the wires from shorting something on the board (and I will absolutely not unsolder and resolder it :-) )

I build a small scratchingpost from scratch (sorry could not resist :-) ) to prevent my cats from scratching on my chair. I used scrap materials I had lying around and it only took me a view minutes.
These are the materials I used:
- a piece of wood for the base (I used the remains of an old cat-tree)
- a cardboard can (from müsli, potatochips, ...)
- a screw, a washer and a nut
- a sisal-clothsline
- some doublesided stickytape
- small rubberfeed
For my Day 29 project of 30DaysOfCreativity I wanted to make something I never made before - so I decided to sew a T-Shirt.
Since I had no clue how to do it, I made a plan
This plan turned out to be a bit naive (very soon) - so I tried another aproach involiving scissors and a sewing machine.
I'm still quite sure not to turn into a tailor any time soon, but the result is far better than anything I hoped for

I am currently attending a course in "Austrian Signing Language", so i made a notepad to draw the signs without having to draw the body and the head again and again (note: most programmers are lazy)
get the pdf here, print some copies and cut them in half. if you want you can also glue them together on the top.
i release this graphics as freeware, but it would be nice if you drop me a note if you use them.read more ...
