The black and white item is a thumb drive.  There's also a Rambler and a P-38...
I recognize the P-38. I love those things. They're extremely versatile multi-tools in their own rights. I have a P-51 on my keychain, along with a 12"x1" piece of ducktape wrapped around it. With my fumbly arthritic fingers I need the bigger one.

Here's a couple links about the P-38 for those who may not know.

I got a P-38 from Calvin and it does look like a pretty handy piece of kit.  :)

That's a great idea DTH.  I have troubles with mine unfolding in my pocket and stabbing me at times.  I think I'll wrap a few inches of gaffer's tape around it.

Is that one of those Grim lok doodads there? 

What are your thoughts on it?  They intrigue me and I'm not certain why....

It is indeed. They are pretty handy to have.  I use it quite a lot at work as I often have to carry around 2 sets of keys so it comes in handy then.  I also use it to attach my Cold Steel CBK's sheath to my belt loop when I am carrying that around.

They do feel pretty solid and well made.

Which doodad is a Grim lok?  Is that the black thing?  I googled it and got nothing.

The D ring thing in the top left corner of the pic.

There have been a few pictures of them posted, but no real good closeups.  They seem to decorate the backgrounds mostly!

Someone ask for close up shots? Second shot the grimloc is open fully. To open them you push the plunger down and it releases the end of the gate.

That looks pretty useful.  It looks like you can attach it to a strap also, using the slot on the handle, right?

Are these made for the military?

The bits are really good quality aren't they.  :)  I used it the other day to dismantle my laptop as I have got a problem with my LCD.  I only used that screwdriver and it worked really well.  (disn't manage to fix the problem though  :()

Countycomm have some really good items at really cheap prices.  I have one of those SO-LED's as well and for the cost it is AMAZINGLY bright.  I can't understand how their stuff is so cheap.  :think:

Thier shipping isn't bad either...UPS at their cost it seems...no "handling" fee really.

The bits on that screwdriver are really well cast and the steel seems like quality.  The plastic handle is indestructable it seems to.  I've owned a few chinese made tools with a similar design and they were all very poor...but cost almost twice as much :P

I've got a dry joint somewhere that causes the LCD to flicker and go all liney.  It looks similar to a frame IC failing on a CRT TV.  Can't seem to find it though.  >:(

Yeah it sounds like it could well be a dry joint or a fault in the ribbon cable which connects to your LCD. Doesn't sound like the actual LCD is at fault but technically it could be. Also doesn't sound like the inverter as they give the required voltage to the backlight. Hope it is just a dry joint, a new LCD will be quite costly.

So do I.  :-\

It is definitely connection related as I can tap it to cure it, but I just can't find the damn thing. >:(  When I did TV's, you could spot a dry joint a mile off as it was either black or sparked.

Yeah, it's much easier when you're working with high voltage to spot cold joints.

Didn't have many ribbon's go wrong either.

I liked working on higher voltage stuff.  When I was learning, I did get the odd bite off of the EHT cap though  :D.  That hurt!

Hmmm, I know the last one I looked at at work was a fault in the ribbon cable to the screen. You could press it firmly and it would be perfect, let go and the screen all pink and wavey. I don't actually do a load of laptop Board Level repairs so my advice now would be look for a dry joint again and reseat that ribbon cable just to make sure.

I tested the ribbons and they seemed fine :-\.  The problem is it is so intermittant.  I was tapping and wiggling all the ribbons and connections I could see and I couldn't get the fault to happen.  Damn electronics.  :twak:

They are.

I had an old Hitachi TV a while back that had a line fault that was a dry joint as well.  I spent months trying to find it and I never cured it.  In the end I just learnt to live with it and gave it the odd whack every now and then  :D

Lol, it is surprising how many monitors can be cured by a good whack! I used to love whacking my old monitor years ago... until I broke it for good in the end. :D
