Getting ready to go back up to Columbus tomorrow so I'll write more after I get back, and you'll all be happy to know that my absence (this time) is due to my having new projects in the works for you guys to check out.
In the meantime, here's my bad-ass new guitar controller for Guitar Hero on the X-Box 360.
Yes, I know that other people have done the Zakk Wylde bullseye design, but I believe I'n the first to emulate his chain guitar strap. It was cheap and easy to do too. Works better than the strap that came with it.
