Okay, been quite a while since i was last here. so, this mod took a new direction no one could have expected. It's got a new prototypical part in it, It's name? Byte.

that's it, Byte. He is a hamster. He's my hamster as of today, Instead of a plexiglass or acryllic window i'm installing a metal chicken-wire style screen in the window, and put in a fair share of pine wood chips. i've put in a HDD rack for him to climb on, left in an old bad mobo and appropriately broken Vid card for him to climb up on. however i want a pc part-looking bridge, from the hdd landing to the vid card landing and up to the cdrom landing. i'm installing a top blowhole exhaust so he can get more ventalation, and gonna power that with a 9volt battery or something. i haven't decided really. i've put in a toilet paper tube in there, and a couple lil tin bowls for food an water. I want to mod an HDD into a running wheel for Byte using some extra grill material.

So if any of you guys have ideas/suggestions let me hear them. or just say hi to byte and any tips for raising a hamster

Pics will be posted as soon as i can find a new usb cable in my apartment. my usb card reader is dead the port has come loose.

Stick an 80mm Delta Electronics fan in it, good for ventilation.

And as many flashing lights and spinning things as you can find. See how much you can screw up the hamster.

I've always wondered... given hamsters and other smelly rodents like to run on little wheels, what would happen if you put one inside a clothes tumble-dryer for some excercise.

Someone in Australia put their baby in a clothes dryer to clean him off when he was wet a while back, and the kid came out with all his skin scalded off, shattered bones all throughout his body, and a brain that was basically mush.

However...

Hamsters have fur as insulation, and are droppable. So I think it could be worth a try.
