Hello, My name is Brady and this is my webpage! I'll be putting up
whatever i'm really interested in up here, Like my 'old technology'
hobby, or other things i find interesting. I'm slowly getting better at
this whole "website" thing, So hopefully the page will look better in
the future. Right now it's a nice improvement from the last one, As i'm
playing around with this new tool a friend said that it's what they
used for their website.
thing i'm pretty excited about and am currently working on would be my
car! Well, it's a minivan, It's been sitting since about 2015, and my
great grandfather said I could have it a couple of months before he
died. I'm getting my liscense in a couple of months and am trying to
get the van driveable by then. I'm excited about it beacuse i've wanted
a van for awhile, And recently i've been looking at old chrysler
products, and thought their 1st and 2nd generation minivans were pretty
cool, And i've got a 2nd generation! and it's the last year they made
them in this body style! It's got some problems, but I can't complain,
Having this car to fix gives me a goal, At least something i'm more
excited about than finishing school.
It's a 1995 Plymouth Grand Voyager, with the 3.3L chrysler v6, and the
a604/41TE automatic transmission, with "quad command" middle-row bucket
seats and a bench seat in the back. It also has the infinity stereo
system which seems to have two problems right now, Something with the
amp (from what i've read, no audio only buzzing) and the cassette deck
needs a new belt.
does seem slow right now, But hopefully as i get more money for parts,
and get more free time (hopefully after school ends, or during spring
break soon) I'll have mor time to work on the car.

|My computer, It too is a work-in-progess. Hopefully i can get the case 'cleaner' and some matching peripherals.|
is my computer, It's what i'm making this website on, It's a computer
with several parts from 2015, But other parts from ~1998-1999. Its guts
are as follows
The computer's pretty nice,
Hopefully i can get better parts for it, i'd love to play some of my
larger games again. Or hopefully find a horizontal ATX case, or be
comforatble enough to modify an old case, because I love the
"horizontal-desktop with a CRT ontop" look.

one of my hobbies, Well, more a "subcatagory" of my "old electronics"
hobby would be televisions, I've gotten many televisions since i
started collecting, and it's branched off into pretty much everything I
use is considered 'old'. This rear-projection TV in the middle is
actually the first HD television i've had since about 2013! You can read more about my television here! |
My main television 'interests' are in the ~1970s/1980's. Some 90's
stuff i'm interested in, But i really love the "woodgrain box"
aestheric, And i'd like to keep it in a majority of my stuff. Although
i'm also into mobile phones, and would love to one day figure out how
to do a sort of DIY phone that supports 4g VoLTE (because that's the
only voice standard used in north america anymore, since 2g shut down
in 2016 and 3g this year) and squish that thing into the case of an old
StarTAC. Beacuse i'd toatally carry one of those around!
