Oh I miss blogging.

I haven’t been blogging for more than a month. I have abandoned my blog temporarily and I don’t really quite like the fact that I did it. I don’t know why, I think am just lack of mood to write anything.. or even visit my blog. Lol.

Mine is crap.

Altec Lansing AHS515.

So anyway, I was being a bit creative this morning. I have an Altec Lansing AHS515 headset which I bought few years ago, and am not really impressed with it because I only used it for less than 2 years when suddenly there was no sound coming out from the left can. Not long after that the left pad fell off, so I decided to just throw it away. But wait.. the microphone is still working fine. But the annoying part is, it’s too bulky for just a mic. Yea you might be wondering why wouldn’t I just wear it since it’s a headset? Well now I have another headphone courtesy of Devin, who gave it to me because he thinks that the headphone sucks (see how nice he is? lol), so yea I can’t be wearing layers of headphones. Bottom of the line is, it sucks that I have to hold the big mic all the time while talking to him on linphone.

So today, I managed to convert my Altec headset, to a microphone with stand! It is fugly.. but am still proud of it. Oh am on linphone right now with Devin and am using the mic at the time of writing. The joy of multi-tasking 😛

Me mic hehe.

Me mic hehe.

  3. Oh honey, you are so clever and smart and your ingenuity never fails to impress! So I give a kiss to thee my dear freebsd based girlfriend! * blushes * And I don’t think it’s “fugly”…but cute in an odd way! 😀

    @Corey – I agree! This relates to your past post regarding “The story of stuff.” My baby found a way to extend the life of her gadget which had been preordained to become obsolete to make way for the acquisition of the newest trifle on the market! * Devin rolls his eyes *
