For techies that want to create a DIY laptop, here’s something that you can put together: a Raspberry Pi Laptop.
My favorite DIY projects are ones that an idiot like myself can do in a few days. To wit, this Raspberry Pi laptop that lets you create a portable computer with keyboard and mouse with only a few parts.
Slap in an HDMI cable, a wireless keyboard and mouse and you’re all set. Arguably this thing is far less complex than, say, the Pi-Top 3D-printed laptop but it could be a fun side project. You can also use a standard battery to power the whole thing and you can buy a tiny keyboard and touchpad combo to make things a bit smaller. While you probably won’t be doing much GIMP or 3D modeling…

I drive a 2006 Toyota Camry which was originally my dad’s. It’s had a lot of mileage already and quite a few dents and scratches, but still in great shape. Back a few months ago in March when it was still winter, I had the unfortunate event of having one of my low beam headlights burn out. It wasn’t so bad, I thought. I still had my other headlight on and the other side had the park light on as a backup. After a couple of weeks of not replacing it (just didn’t have time to get it done and winter makes you lazy) and getting pulled over by a cop informing/reminding me to get my busted headlight replaced, I (with the help of my SO) finally replaced it for the cost of only ~$10! If you ever need your headlights changed, you are better off doing it on your own, rather than having to pay at least $20 per headlight – just for labour! So that’s a total of at least $30 per light! Yes, you read that right. I went to Canadian Tire where I bought the light bulb and asked them how much to get it replaced and that was the labour fee I was quoted.
Two days ago, one driver pulled up beside me while the traffic was stopped and was looking my direction trying to tell me something so I rolled down the passenger side window. He was nice enough to tell me that both my brake lights were out. I actually knew about one of them being out about a month ago when a coworker told me about it when he saw it, but I just forgot about it. So yesterday, I finally went out and bought brake lights for my car and replaced them right away (again with the help of my SO). Pretty easy actually.

I also need to replace my front sidemarker light bulb on the right side but I haven’t figured out how to do it yet. I did not find any videos yet for or close to my model car. I will update this post once I am able to replace it already.
