    Were talking working hacks right? I got in a Power Play once with the worst plumber/failed electrician hacks ever. Saber sawed holes to get to the back side of the board with wires, not realizing he could just as well gone around the outside edge. High voltage section nightmare. Reused electrical tape. But it was in there and working and I am still kicking myself for not taking pictures. This came about just a few weeks before Steve Kulpa had put together his hack hall of fame, pretty funny if you haven't seen it.
