i got to play with an msx plotter printer this weekend

that was easier than expected! i just hope it works

any guesses what this is? hint, left side is din-5, right side is trrs

i hate enameled wires

but ya gotta do what ya gotta do

this picture sums me up pretty well (CW selfie, eye contact)

had to resolder everything a couple of times because wires kept breaking but here's the final result, finally

and with just as much hot glue as the previous iteration

haha suck it

i used the other plug that i kept as backup and somehow that one works for charging and sync ???????

wonder if it has resistors hidden inside it

as expected the cable without a pcb or resistors makes the iPod say it can't charge with it, but at least it works for super slow trickle charging and sync.

HOPE YOU LIKE HOT GLUE

third one in this style and i still don't know how to open it without ruining the case

except this one doesn't have a pcb..

let's try the other one i have like that which is cleaner then (and the case is in clamshell style which is easily openable) and keep this as backup

a lot of shaky paws later, this worked... up until i closed it and one of the pads ripped out...

no mind, i have about 4 or 5 other connectors to work with...

desk looking like Apple 30 pin graveyard rn

trying to mush the several broken cables i have into one working one

tiny cans got me feeling like Andre the Giant over here
