This'll probably be updated, rather'n making new logs. I'll date/order them newest-to-oldest...

(9-22-15) X = Scanner, Y = Printer, Z = DVD. Duh. I don't know why I didn't come up with this...

(9-11-15) @Al Williams posted to the blog a build using a CD-drive's case as an enclosure... http://hackaday.com/2015/09/10/phone-scope-build-uses-old-optical-drive/ Yep, as I tear more and more of these drives apart, it's becoming quite apparent that these enclosures could be quite handy.

(9-5-15) Completely unrelated, but maybe indirectly... http://hackaday.com/2013/12/03/compliant-robot-gripper-wont-scramble-your-eggs/ That's a "fin gripper" which is a pretty cool concept mentioned in a video shown by @Lloyd T Cannon III on the hacker's chat at #Hacker Channel.

(9-4-15) PCB-etching: spray-paint containing sulfur?
