Every useful electronics project deserves a good enclosure. Providing a proper case for your circuit can protect it from accidental spills & falls – plus give it a cool look you can proudly show off to those unfamiliar with soldering and such. Follow along with Collin as he turns a barebones function generator kit into a sturdy and versatile tone-box fit for noise-jamming & testing purposes.

Yep, I’m running Google’s new pre-alpha (Version 5) Chromium OS off of a USB flash drive, on my MacBook (white 2006). For those of you who don’t know, Google Chromium OS is basically Google turning Chrome (the web browser) into an operating system, plus a few things (but not enough) controls to manage your system. For example, running this version on my Mac lacked brightness and volume keys. Sound through the speakers worked, but not with headphones. You can adjust the volume of YouTube videos by using that little slider on every video. Brightness remains on full blast while I am on Chromium, regardless of the prior (Mac OS) setting. It may sound like it should be advanced for version 5, but trust me, it needs a lot of work. ***I’d really appreciate you giving me five stars, commenting, and subscribing.*** Starting with this video, I am really trying to help improve the quality of my videos so that they are more popular and my viewers will enjoy watching them. Thanks!
