    Mike's Bio:
    I love to do "cool" things and by that I mean weird projects and such that interest me. For instance I made a violin my senior year of high school. I admit I'm a gamer and proud of it! Science and math have interested me all my life and more specifically computer science. I hope to one day be able to build robots that change the lives of people who have lost limbs. That's pretty much me in a nutshell but I'm sure you'll find out more as time goes on. =)

Routine Maintenance?

Hey all! After being away from Duluth for a few weeks it feels great to be back! The first few days back are always fun but can be very stressful. I have been excited all summer to see where I would be living this coming school year because there were rumors that the building was being renovated… and it has been! The place is so nice! My new hardware for my computer came in and progress on the school’s news site is moving along! I can tell it’s gonna be another good year!

One project that I have been working on recently is refurbishing an old broken X-box one of my professors found. When I acquired the system it gave and E74 error and would not even boot the Dashboard (the menu for the X-box). E74 means that the people who owned it previously somehow overheated the system and some of the connections on the board were loosened. I overheated the system and reset the connections which solved the problem. The next problem I found was that the DVD drive was malfunctioning… so I opened it up and it looked like someone went in the drive and cut all the cables inside! Darn vandals >=(. The cables were an easy part to get my hands on so I got a few extra and replaced them. I wasn’t expecting it to work but it did! The drive works fine. All that’s left is clean and replace thermal compound on the CPU and GPU (or video chip) because it was overheated. With luck I think that this X-box can be saved!

As for tonight I am going to UMD to spend time with a friend of mine that I have known since high school. Tomorrow I am spending the weekend with one of the schools bands called “The Rock” and working their sound. Can’t wait =D

There’s so much happening right now! Never a dull moment!

PS: I’ll upload some pictures of the X–box later =D
