Hacklab the choose your own adventure?

Hacklab the movie Exclusive still preview.

Todays post was originally suppose to be a comic strip that ended upon a past internet Meme which has recently been gracing the lab, specifically the LED sign.                                                               The Meme in question is the video of Rick Astley – Never Gonna Give You Up.  The LED sign just cant handle the current video this internet favourite, but I have high hopes for the video/animation currently in use with some more tweaking and editing it could be fully working in no time.                                         So instead of my intended comic I am present everyone with a mashup between a make your own caption, and what I am calling Hacklab the movie.

Letting the magic blue smoke out.

Letting the magic blue smoke out.

Letting the magic blue smoke out.

For those who do not know what letting the magic blue smoke out reference’s, it simply means when something electronic is over powered, melted, or broken in such a way it may spark and produces smoke is a sign of death of a component or a device.
Often the smoke is blue when IC’s burn, other components may produce other colours based on the metals and materials they are composed of. Wikipedia of course has an article on this topic with more information, and I am sure could be expanded upon.

To see the magic smoke get released and what the Microscope has found click on the more link below.
