wireless headphones bodgery

Things would appear to be slowing down at work, at last. I've had the opportunity to clear a lot of the old papers from my desk and finally screw the front back on my 'mucking about' PC.

That said, it's not been a "nothing" day by any means; I had a small collection of bits delivered (although some of them turned out to be wrong... how one letter difference can make something useless and half the size) that needed installing, a smattering of niggles to sort out, and my boss was in, so I had to look busy.

You may be excused for supposing that I can't leave anything alone (or working). I've been tinkering again... several years ago I received a pair of wireless headphones from Beth, which have served me jolly well, I must say. Unfortunately, after nearly five years of regular use, the volume control has started crackling, and the earpads have almost worn out, so that they're rather uncomfortable to wear, and almost impossible to keep on my odd-shaped head. As a result, I've transported all the bits into a small plastic box that I've hacked around with a drill, soldering iron and needle (handy cutting instrument, that) and sharp pokey blade, fitted a stereo headphone socket, and employed my now-ubiquitous Sony Fontopias. I only injured myself once, too. A bit.little black box of music
