Hey there, Wheelies. What's up? It's your old pal WheelGenius here.

This site will remain up for everyone's viewing pleasure. So, there's no need to fret. My deviations are still available. Just click on the "Gallery" link.

Hey, Wheelies! Happy New Year to you all at deviantART. Goodbye 2015, and hello 2016. You know, it's been at least 5 years since I've joined. After all, I'm honored whenever some of my WOF-related artworks are being used for various things, like hand-made projects, YouTube video projects, like the one I recently shared, local TV promos, and so forth.

Don't forget, just because haven't posted anything new in a while, doesn't mean I'm dead, or have permanently given up posted here. For the most part, I have a lot of important things to do in life. So please keep that in mind.

Speaking of which, I've been going through a series of issues here in the past 3 years or so. Trolls, spambots, ignorami, you name it. And what about flaming and/or labeling one another, and making heavy assumptions of some kind? That kind of shit pisses me off. So, let's make 2016 a good year.

Once again, Happy New Year to you all.
Hey Wheelies.
Today is Monday, December 28th. 34 years ago, on this very day, you guessed it, Pat Sajak took the helm on Wheel of Fortune. This was also the first day of "Teen Week". Perhaps, the first special week where teens 13+ got to spin and win. Here's a full episode, thanks to DailyMotion user Chris Bryant.

30 Christmases ago, being an avid Wheel watcher, guess what Santa sent me? You guessed it. The first edition of Pressman's official Wheel of Fortune home game.

Ho ho ho, Wheelies! I just want to wish you all the merriest Christmas.
Since I've updated the card backs from the ground-up, plus the ace of spades, I'm posting a bunch of the prize cards used in the syndicated Card Sharks hosted by the late Bill Rafferty. These too are done from the ground-up. Not ripped from anyone.

Also, PLEASE don't expect any face cards and jokers until further notice. Until someone can help find clearer, high-res screencaps of the CS face cards/joker.

I have an idea:

This may seem advanced to you, but if you get to know the ropes of this project, you'll get it done in no time!

Also, take note that you will be working with a hot soldering gun, so use caution!

You will need several 6V miniature wire-lead bulbs, soldering skills, Arduino coding skills, Arduino UNO or better module, basic knowledge of electrical hookup, a soldering gun (25 to 40 watts), rosin core solder, hookup wire (to send signals to the bulbs), a desoldering tool (in case you make a mistake), sticky tape (to hold the bulbs down as you solder them in place), and a pre-drilled circuit board (to place the bulbs on, with the wire leads going through the pre-drilled holes).

To get started, arrange 35 bulbs on the board in a five-by-seven matrix. Place each bulb in the pre-drilled hole set on the board. After all the bulbs are in place, tape all of the bulbs down onto the board. Then, proceed to solder all of the leads onto the board - be careful not to let multiple leads touch - if this happens, take your desoldering tool, touch the soldering gun to the excess solder, and squeeze the bulb of the desoldering tool. After soldering everything in place, it's time to hook everything up - depending on your configuration, you can connect one set of lines by using solder on two points that do not create a short-circuit on a bulb, and another set of lines by using wires. Connect all of the row and column pins with color-coded wire - rows would be colored red, and columns are green. The common wire is black. To hook your creation up to an Arduino, you need to connect the wires as follows:

Digital Bus
R1: 2
R2: 3
R3: 4
R4: 5
R5: 6
R6: 7
R7: 8
C1: 9
C2: 10
C3: 11
C4: 12
C5: 13
COM: GND

Then, download the software for your Arduino module from www.arduino.cc, plug your Arduino module into your computer using a USB cable, and start coding with your newly created eggcrate digit!

(The old set of Wheel of Fortune used eggcrate displays for the contestants' scores.)

Here's something 'new' from the Aussie version :D sta.sh/027v0di7pmuf

(I won't be able to reply until Wednesday or Thursday since I'm on vacation in Fiji, sorry about that)
