Xbox 360 and Original Xbox controller PCB diagrams - for mods or making your own joystick

I did not have this as a reference when attempting my first controller mod or pad hack. This is very handy for any controller mod type, ie: making a custom joystick. There are also many more controller/PCB diagrams on SlagCoin, just posting some of the ones I am currently using or have used in the past for some of my mods. Enjoy!

ps- Diagrams are pretty self explanatory but if you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments sections

World of Warcraft goes free to play up to level 20

If you haven't already heard, Blizzard has given up on the 10-14 day trials for World of Warcraft and traded them for a F2P service. Though the F2P service is only limited until your character reaches lvl 20, it will allow for a great time to try out the game if you haven't already. If you have already used a 10 or 14 day trial, then you will be able to pick up where you left off. Assuming you haven't yet reached lvl 20.

The new F2P service is being called "World of Warcraft Starter Edition" and can be found on the official Blizzard site. Click here to visit site and sign up.
