Wired won't lose power like batteries do, so if you're a multiplayer junkie in the middle of gaming session then the last thing you want is fucking about changing batteries!!

I just ordered 5 ISA XT IDE boards and all the components to build them.



https://www.lo-tech.co.uk/product/lo...pactflash-pcb/

Should be a fun build, I only need one and will prolly sell the other 4 to my mates. Mines going in a Tandy 1000ex so I'll have to build a plus to ISA adaptor which it's pretty easy.

heh, it was on purpose - i dont like charging devices all the time.
just thinking of remote controls :/
but another cool thing: proximity sensor is "wireless" - close to the device
it switches off the lightshow - can be configured
and you can store a couple of configs inside the mouse - really cool device.
never ever again a overpriced and lousy logitech

@BarryB: correct, good point.

@dJOS why allways such huge images? use http://hostthenpost.org/
creates smaller thumbnails for forums - links to the bigger one.

It's a direct link to the pic on the site. This forum is the problem as it doesn't auto-scale images like pretty much every other forum does these days.

ah, ok. i thought it was a random image hoster, now i see.
and yes, there are options on that matter. some plugins for the forum software exists, scaling images on the fly.
maybe after the next maintenance

Had a vacation in Japan and scored a GREAT deal on a Super Famicom set!



It's got some yellowing and other details but I don't care about any of that, I always wanted an SFC as I dislike the US SNES design a lot (and this was MUCH cheaper than the Famicom Mini I originally wanted to purchase on my trip. Prices are mental for those and sold out at most places!). I also got another official controller for it.

1530 with an arduino mod.

Buttons (Play, Stop, Record, etc.) work like on the real device.

I just got a frame for my signed and numbered print of the Dragon's Lair Castle Pan (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/d...ovie-cartoon#/). That turned out to be larger than I expected, but all the better so.

Now to find a wall spot to put it up...

A Rigol DS1052E oscilloscope. Always wanted one. It's been 20 years since I last used a scope at college!
Expect some major Amiga advances (or not !)

I'm off to build some 555 timer circuits!

I didn't buy this today (bought it a few days ago), but it came through today: a boxed Amiga 500, red LED edition, for 60 (plus p&p):
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/222475864804

I've only had a few minutes to try it, but so far it seems to work really well. It needs a bit of a clean and probably some retrobrite attention; and the left button on the tank mouse doesn't work (which isn't really a problem as I've got a spare mouse lurking); but I'm really happy with it. I never had a 500 but it was seeing my cousin's that got my desperately wanting an Amiga, so having one alongside my 1200 is fab!

My wife was less impressed though...

Mac Mini G4 to run MorphOS on it
[ Show youtube player ]

It actually worked, but I am not keen to pay for the software more than for the hardware itself, while the MacOS X for it is free.
