Samsung Note 4: One More Button
Technically it’s illegal to touch a mobile phone while driving in Queensland, but I figure it’s the lesser of evils when the only legitimate alternative is to ram other cars off the road when a shit song can’t be skipped. So I had to add a button to my Galaxy Note 4 somehow.
Tecmo sues game hackers
According to several sites, The US arm of Tecmo has sued a group of game hackers for, essentially, making nude codes. Tecmo has sued people for playing with games they legally own in a way Tecmo doesn’t approve of. This is ludicrous. The Register has more. In a surprisingly coincidental move, Taiwan’s Foam Max Enterprises […]
After a long time of no substantive updates I completely reworked the PC Engine RGB mod page. All new pics, all new text, and gobs of new links. Check it out.
My doorbell broke.
My doorbell ceased to function a few days ago. I only noticed ’cause, as a complete fluke, I happened to be on my way out the door when a delivery arrived. The first time I watched the guy through the window as he filled out two forms, put ’em in my mailbox, and left. I […]
Sega Saturn Switchless Mod: Done!
Someone recently asked me to modify their US Sega Saturn with one of my switchless mods and last night I did it. Since my camera’s in the shop, I had to use my celphone to take pics. It did a fairly decent job. Here’s the pics of the job: Closeup view of jumpers Jumpers with […]
V-601SH speaker killswitch
My phone makes a loud chime sound whenever I take a picture, as part of an anti-upskirt measure all Japanese cellphone makers adopted. I’m not particularly against this, tho it’d have been nicer if I could choose my own sound… Recently we were taking care of a kitten, a very cute photogenic kitten, and I […]
Making a Saturn USB pad…
I’ve whipped up a more detailed mod than normal over on GameSX.com, showing in detail how I made a Saturn pad into a USB pad. Have a look-see!
PC Engine CD ROM Mod: Done!
I spent the greater part of my evening putting together a PC Engine CD (with case) system that I could call my own. I pulled out all the stops, with a white (not yellow!) PC Engine system, the cleanest CD ROM I could find, RGB amp, LED swap and region mod. It turned out great, […]
Lots of time spent on new hacks.
Remember that speaker killswitch I made for my celphone? It was externally ugly so I remade it with a different switch and a button I ripped out of a dummy (demo) phone I bought at a surplus shop. It looks damned near factory now, shame it works in reverse now – no sound unless I […]
Today’s tech fun!
Tonight I spent some time putting the finishing touches on an X68000 power supply repair. Once I got it all finished and put it together, it failed to function. Turns out the floppy drives were dead. Let this be a lesson unto you: If your power supply blows, and they often do with these awesome […]
