DIY Project 02 : How to Make Your Own LAN Cable

  • sunny yoo
As you noticed, we always like to customize things around our working environment. And yes, we made our own LAN Cables! We actually had fun while working on our 2nd DIY Project. (At least I did.)

Before I begin this post... I must confess that I owe a big apology to my team members. I almost lost all of these photos! Thanks to Jay’s big help, we could recover deleted image files.

Thank you very much for your help again, and I promise it won’t happen again! T^T

Jay and Ted had a tutor from the Telecom Company earlier that day.
He was generous enough to give us tips on creating LAN Cables.

Are you ready to go, people?
Yup, Jay was getting excited about starting the DIY Project!

Jay and Ted... They were perfect DIY Project partners!

Making some noise here! :)

Half of this project is done...

Okay, bring it on...!
From this point, we really started to work as a team.

Untwist colorful LAN cables and cut them approximately 1.5 cm.

Carefully insert each cord to the jack. Make sure the colors match!

Plug your cable into the LAN tester to check if it is assembled successfully.
If the lights go on and off one by one, you are safe.

"You know what color orange is, right........?"

This is how we make a living. Just kidding.

Some serious workers...

By the time we were done, we realized that the slackers were watching over us...

Our DIY Project 02 turned out to be very successful.
We'll be back with more DIY Projects! :)

DIY Project 01 : How to Clean Up Your Own iMac Display

  • sunny yoo
If you are an iMac user, you‘ve probably seen these smudges inside the screen. These spots bothered us so much, and we finally decided to clean them up with our own hands!

Well, if you are struggling with similar problems, feel free to ask us any questions. (hopefully we have the answers...)


Be prepared with some of your favorite tools like these...
Not sure what kind of tools you're supposed to use?
Please check out the link below. :)

Take the Display’s front glass panel apart from the iMac body by using heavy-duty suction cups.
Probably the most important part of this project.
(Oooops, sorry about the finger prints on the panel! It’s so embarrassing... We’ll clean them up later.)

Ta-da! :)

Okay, let's take a break. Plus, we needed to do some more research...

Clean up the surface of LCD very gently with a microfiber cleaning cloth.

From corner to corner. Be very gentle, please.

Time to reassemble the parts. Jay also taped the sides of the display. Very neat, huh!?
(such a perfectionist!)

Tip :
You can also vacuum the dust while the display is open!

Spray some windex and gently clean off the finger prints, dusts, and etc...

Set up your Display back on your (messy) desk, and now you’re done.
(And please... please clean up your desk.)

See? Now it's all cleaned up, and we are very satisfied with the way it looks now!

It wasn't easy, but it wasn't too hard!
If we did it, you can do it, too. (maybe not... :p)

    와플스토어에서 이런 DIY 시리즈가 시작되는군요!
    S/W 벤처 블로그와는 성격이 다른거 같으면서 동시에 연관성이 느껴지는... 그런 새로운 느낌인데요? :)

      시리즈라고 하기에는 부족함이 있겠지만.. 그래도 저희 DIY 할 때마다 포스트로 잘 담아보겠습니다. 좋게 보아주셔서 고맙습니다. :)

      업무용 PC가 모두 아이맥이다보니 자가수리 않고서는 비용도 시간도 줄일 수가 없어서 찾게된 궁여지책이었어요. ^^;

      저희 글보다는 ifixit.com의 분해기를 참고하셔서 조심히 해보시구요, 이 방법으로 직접 수리를 하게 되면 정식 AS가 불가능하니 워런티 종료 이후에만 추천드립니다. :)

    제 아이맥도 전에 한번 시도했는데, 처음엔 단순하게 유리 뒤쪽에 생긴 먼지일거라 생각하고 유리를 떼서 딱아본뒤 그 쪽에 생긴 먼지가 아니라는걸 알게 된 순간 매우 당황했었던 기억이 있습니다. 그 아이맥 특유의 멍자국을 지우려면 LCD페널에서 스크린부분과 백라이트를 또 분리 하신건가요??

      저희도 처음 분해했을 때에 같은 경험이 있었어요. 그래서 말씀주신 것처럼 LCD 패널 자체를 분해해서 먼지를 닦아냈답니다. ^^
