It took five years, but a reader—specifically Flickr user Tom Arthur—finally figured out the secret feature we designed into the magazine, oh very much definitely on purpose, back in 2005: It’s sized to fit perfectly inside a classic NES case. Tom is now the only reader able to equip the Soldering Iron of 1000 Truths. Congrats! [Thanks, Tom!]
