hahaha you hit the nail right on the head basically. we both volunteer at the local cable access channel, and hes on the board. we're the ones fixing stuff and setting stuff up and such, and he'll come up with some way to use something that I'd never think of. even with shit around the house or whatever, he's got some tried and trued oddball fix for some of the weirdest shit
