Ever buy a cool piece of hardware only to find the manufacturer has crippled it in some way? Like a phone that won't work with a different SIM card or a router with a crappy operating system? Well, it's annoying. So, I tend not to take it lying down. I have probably bought over 200 various electrical items in my lifetime and probably exercised the warranty on only 4 or 5, so whenever possible I take the chance to tinker with the internals to make it work better.
Here are some results. Enjoy :)
