    Cool

    Heh, nice keychain.

    But what is that thing sticking out of the side of the player? Some kind of adapter?

    The player is just a RioVolt 250, someday I will put a comptuer in there, but I am so damn poor right now. That thing coming out the side is my line out cable. I am so poor right now I did have 5 bucks to go and buy a stero to RCA adapter, so I made one. I had a big stero plug that you can solder wires too, so I soldered a single RCA cable to that, then used a splitter I had laying around to plug it into my head units RCA jacks. Also I had to use a big stero to small stero adapter so I could plug it into my mp3 player, that's why the connecter is so long. It's just temporary until I get a few bucks and can buy a stero to RCA adapter.


    Also, I love being able to say that my keychain has 4 megs of RAM.

    Hey! How much RAM you got in that key holder?
    Does it make the car start faster?
    If it ain't broken, open it to see what makes it "tick".

    Argh! The volume control is on the wrong side of your radio, and the writing on your mp3 player is back to front.
