Good Story

I have a seemingly good story to tell. I work in a university that tends to like to get rid of things that don't work. One of them being a digital sign that was never utilized. The sign had issues from the beginning and no one wanted to look at it. The issues it had was that it was pixelating, no remote, and the software it used was on a compact flash card. Yea it was a little old but seemed it needed a little TLC. The first task was pixelating issues. I cracked it opened and found that a cable had come loose. Fixed issue one. The remote was needed to change sources. We are buying a new remote for it but i was able to find a weird code on a universal remote that worked as long as i remember which button was the correct one. Lets just say the correct buttons was in weird places to get the source changed. Lastly the software. Well simple RISE VISION with my android app. We now have a running sign with no issues. We showed it off to the department that was going to get rid of it and now they want it back in a high traffic place on the university.  Here is a pic below of the sign i fixed up. Still working on the presentation but almost done. Maybe this will show the University that its time to update all the signs. Anyway thought i share this to Rise. 

Also thanks rise for an awesome template. :)
