Creating something useful

One of the most visited pages on this blog is my 2007 review of the Cheeky Dream USB Chess Board. Basically I panned the product, deciding it was both junk, and expensive junk. However someone decided it might be a useful tool after all, and decided to make something out of it. Bryan Whitby has used the USB board and turned into a reasonably cheap DGT board. He has documented the entire process, which you can look at on the USB Chess Board webpage.
Also worth noting is that the popularity of my review has attracted a lot of spam comments to that particular blog page. So if you do visit the original article, be warned.
