Make vol. 02

Make: technology in your time vol. 02

The second edition of Make magazine has lots more DIY technology projects. These include a mouse robot, an Atari cased PC for retro gaming and whatever else takes your fancy, a Mac based HDTV and much more including how to repair your transistor based guitar amp.

This set me to wondering how you'd do a DIY software project. Just copying code is not all that interesting but what about components or Mac OS X "bundles". I'm sure there's room for something there but just exactly what, I'm not sure.

Just as the first one is, this is nicely and clearly laid out for those following the instructions of a project. There are more projects in this issue than the first I think which increases the chances you might want to build something.
