    I buy my things in store if possible.

    The Sony power supply seems to provide as much power as it should out from an AC adapter. Nice. Not like what you can get out from a computer.

    Do you think capacitive styluses work well? I think so.

    It takes some time getting used to the gapless design, though. However, it does have proper PC keys and has a better feel once you have the layout down.

    That Pokey remix sounds so dang good with these new headphones

    Not really. I tend to use VOPM more for FM Music.

    Yeah, or look around on eBay, plenty of people sell bulk cases+instructions (which is what I'm looking into since I need more and Nintendo no longer sells the cases with GBA slots in their online store.
  9. Yoshi648
    September 28, 2012 03:56:07 PM
    Those ARE DS cases

    Seems I forgot to upload the picture of them.. Basically you use an x-acto,razor,whatever small knife based object you have and cut the bottom part of the GBA slot and the top half of the DS slot like this. With that, the remaining parts of the GBA slot will perfectly hold GB/GBC games upside-down. If you want, you can cut the top part of the left half of the case and the instructions will fit in there as well side-ways.

    I had some mini organizer that I used to keep little notes on. It was so annoying when its 16 KB of battery-backed RAM filled up.

    I have lost two flash drives: one 1 GB and one 8 GB. As I still never found them, I assume I lost them on campus or had them stolen. I did once lose my 256 MB one, but I got it back later on.

    I have five drives I carry around right now:
    128 MB - Not really sued
    256 MB - Used for quick transfers of small files, formerly my primary school drive
    4 GB - Formerly my primary school drive, but has since been replaced by SkyDrivel; currently just gets used to move larger files around
    16 GB - Xbox 360 backups
    320 GB - Not a flash drive, but I might as well bring up my hard drive, which is used to store massive files like movies and games

    Now don't make me bring up my cache of SD cards.
  12. Cat333Pokémon
    September 27, 2012 08:07:14 PM
    I remember seeing PCMCIA flash drives way back in the day, but even 8 MB was ridiculously expensive. I still have my first 128 MB USB flash drive, and I've actually had to use it a couple times recently.

    Hmm...remember when cell phones, PDAs, and pagers were separate devices?
  13. Cat333Pokémon
    September 27, 2012 04:09:19 PM
    I didn't know they were that old.
  14. Cat333Pokémon
    September 26, 2012 09:15:02 PM
    Yeah, I'm done sinking money into laptops that keep breaking. This netbook is pretty annoying, especially the mouse and sound volume, but it still manages to survive as a backup, so it's best to just use the mule for a while longer.

    I'm getting a tablet soon, so hopefully that gets some use.
  15. Cat333Pokémon
    September 25, 2012 05:56:39 PM
    I like the difference between the two CF cards I have. One is 8 GB, while the other is 64 MB.

    I keep having trouble with my current laptop. The power supply crapped out and decided to possibly short the battery. (It only runs up to 3 hours now, as opposed to 4:30 hours like in May...and even a week ago.) And now the screen has a nice crack in it, which blacked out part of it so I cannot see it. I'm not sure if I should sink more money into it or just deal with my netbook. I really don't like that netbook, but it has survived more than my other laptops with practically nothing broken.

    Is it a good thing or a bad thing that I've heard of HyperCard and was lectured on it briefly?

    Oh god the local radio is now playing unofficial Gangnam Style remixes
  20. Cat333Pokémon
    September 19, 2012 05:15:41 PM
    Hehe. I have a Pentium processor lying around somewhere that isn't being used.

    I personally want to use a very old-style beige box to install a modern computer. Only troubles are the motherboard IO panel, the expansion slot positions, the screw holes for the motherboard on the case, and the power supply.
  21. Cat333Pokémon
    September 19, 2012 01:18:15 AM
    Is it bad I've actually heard of HyperCard and know how it works?

    I think I still have a D-sub MIDI port joystick, but it doesn't work. I think one of the axes fidgets a lot.

    It looks like IDE. I might be able to ask if I could borrow/keep one and test it out with my Windows 7 machine, but I don't own any Zip disks.
  24. Cat333Pokémon
    September 11, 2012 09:13:50 PM
    Hahaha, nice! Today, I got to see an assortment of SCSI drives, null modem connectors, dot matrix printers, and Zip drives.

    I see someone that never tried Windows Backup since Vista.
  26. Twiggy
    September 6, 2012 11:20:45 AM
    Hope you got the data in the newer backups, too.

    I think I like modern backup software -- they backup changes only, and duplicates are skipped.
  27. Twiggy
    September 6, 2012 11:07:40 AM
    When you're a bit tired, why not try testing out Bing and Google in a blind taste test? (Ignore the layout and focus on the content.)

    You'll find the thread there. Maybe... Hey, go search for fanart there... Two engines are better than one.
  28. Twiggy
    September 6, 2012 09:03:47 AM

    September 5, 2012 01:47:49 AM
    I wish.

    *highstumps* Do whatever you think is best. If the data are all in your user folder, you might want to consider just "mostly" moving the data out. I've noticed that I can get away with a smaller backup when it's not the entire computer, complete with OS components and downloaded-from-the-Internet apps that I can just GoogleBing.

    Also, if you can run it, try to get enough cash to pony up for an OEM copy of Windows 7.
  32. Twiggy
    September 4, 2012 11:06:27 AM
    Since your MacBook is probably no longer getting any software updates these days, you might want to consider downloading any available Boot Camp drivers and turn it into a Windows laptop.
  33. Twiggy
    September 4, 2012 11:05:15 AM
    I think Apple needs a Vista-like fiasco of their own. Incapable hardware running software that demands too much.
  34. Twiggy
    September 1, 2012 08:20:27 PM
    Mmm, so I suppose that it works even worse than Windows over time these days.
  35. Twiggy
    September 1, 2012 07:56:59 AM
    How so?

    I'm getting sick of its instability. I'm considering nuking OS X, when the next update rolls around.

    That would be sweet!

    Nice find! The only Doom I've played was on the SNES. :3
  37. BigN64
    August 26, 2012 06:30:17 AM
    Doom is a pretty good shoot-em-up game. I'd like to get a joystick for the Genesis. Imagine playing Streets of Rage with a joystick.

  41. BigN64
    August 14, 2012 07:12:33 AM
    Nice find on the joystick. That'll come in handy when playing fighting games like Street Fighter. I have the NES Advantage.
  42. Twiggy
    August 11, 2012 08:38:16 PM
    The mouse should work as long as you have Bluetooth enabled.

    August 9, 2012 10:36:24 AM
    OS X seems to use SoundCanvas samples while playing MIDIs from Finder, but there seems to be some loudness equalization hijinks going on. The volume is very uneven.

    It also does reverb better than Microsoft Synthesizer, though, even though the latter is also capable of it.
  44. Twiggy
    August 6, 2012 10:01:50 AM
    Hey, I heard that you have an Apple Magic Mouse.

    After using it for a while, I'm considering just grabbing my old Logitech from my old home this September.

    Whats up? I got an Xbox 360 for free. My friend gave it to me after he bought the new Xbox 360 S (the redesigned model). It comes with: power supply, hybrid composite and component cable, 20 GB hardrive, and one wireless controller. It's the Xbox 360 Premium (20 GB, no HDMI). I don't own any 360 games yet but I'm currently borrowing some of his games.

    Windows 7 still has such an app built in (just type "dialer" on the Start Menu), but I believe it requires an actual handset to be attached to the passthrough port on the modem.
  56. Cat333Pokémon
    June 25, 2012 02:29:16 PM
    We got on the grid at home in '99 with a simple e-mail service, which none of us really used. I just used it so I could talk to my dad during his free time at work. I still have those messages, too, including my spelling of "Picachu."
  57. Cat333Pokémon
    June 21, 2012 11:12:38 AM
    Yeah, no idea what to say about the Dreamcast. Its modem was still ahead of its time, but so it was still during a time of service fees and when the Internet actually prevented you from another service: the phone.

    It's kind of amazing how popular online play is now and how short of time we've actually had it.
  61. Cat333Pokémon
    June 20, 2012 09:32:17 PM
    I wonder what kind of shoddy stuff you could do with an Internet-enabled Genesis, though? The following generation barely had any support for such stuff, and the Internet was...well, there was no World Wide Web on it.

    I'll definitely use H.264 for the destination format after capture, but it's just too CPU-intensive to use live encoding with it.
  62. GalliumGrant
    June 20, 2012 06:39:50 PM
    Thanks, Seiji! :3
  63. Cat333Pokémon
    June 20, 2012 03:49:39 PM
    Oh, any advice for capturing high definition (720p, maybe 1080i, but I don't like interlacing) video? All the programs I've tried so far have problems with the minimal compression formats. Too many dropped frames (might be a hard drive interface bottleneck, but it is SATA II), too large of file sizes (I don't want files over a terabyte.), or just generally difficult to use.
  64. Cat333Pokémon
    June 20, 2012 03:47:22 PM
    I think that's some kind of external video interfacing port. I saw something that used it once, but I completely forgot what it was for. I have Model 1 and 2 Genesises, but neither have it, so I assume it was dropped sometime before the release of Model 2.
  65. Cat333Pokémon
    June 20, 2012 11:25:33 AM
    I'd love to interface all my consoles together in some way, but who knows what the 360 and Wii would do to each other.
  66. Twiggy
    June 20, 2012 09:00:14 AM
    Also, my desktop looks like this.

    Yes, Intel HD Graphics 3000 can run Skyrim on Low at 1366x768. OK-ish. 20-30 FPS. If I hack the configuration files and set it to run at 848x480, I get 30-60 FPS. Remember when you couldn't do anything with Intel GPUs?
  67. Twiggy
    June 20, 2012 08:57:32 AM
    I think I bring around my laptop a lot more often these days, so it's an ultraportable or bust. So I went with this.

    I love hacking stuff up. My Wii is so messed up from soft hacking that some games (don't worry, I buy those--and I've bought WAY too many channels that I have to shuffle with SD cards) take upwards of 5 minutes to start, without hyperbole.
  71. Cat333Pokémon
    June 18, 2012 09:40:31 PM
    Hehe, nice.

    Ah, I don't know that song.

    Oh, I'm getting an HD capture card. Let's see how quickly that eats up my hard drive.
  72. Twiggy
    June 18, 2012 08:51:09 PM
    And when?
  73. Twiggy
    June 18, 2012 07:58:22 PM
    It's an 11-inch MacBook Air

    So my back doesn't get hurt while "lugging" around laptops

    Also, just fast enough to run all my games, even with that Intel graphics.

    (I can also set brightness up with impunity)
  74. Cat333Pokémon
    June 17, 2012 01:05:52 AM
    Is it bad I know exactly what sound byte that is without running it through anything? The word yelled after that is, "Charge!"

    June 6, 2012 09:23:11 AM
    Speaking of the PC version, there's an entirely good chance of mangling that beautiful music of the original PlayStation into bad Mega Drive synth. If you cheaper out on the sound card and didn't have anything that can do samples...
  83. Twiggy
    June 6, 2012 09:14:19 AM
    Also, the software XG synthesizer you have there... Used in conjunction with the PC version of Final Fantasy 7 and 8, well, try to compare with the original PlayStation versions.
  84. Twiggy
    June 6, 2012 09:12:43 AM
    They remind me of SPC
  85. Twiggy
    June 6, 2012 09:04:50 AM
    QuickTime used SoundCanvas samples, too.
  86. Twiggy
    June 5, 2012 09:03:52 PM
    I wonder what SoundCanvas samples remind you of? xD

    I think these XG MIDIs that I have won't play properly on a regular synth.
  87. BigN64
    June 5, 2012 11:41:18 AM
    Nice find! The HD model 1's are considered to be the best versions of the Genesis. The worst version is the model 3, imo.

    I hope to get a Virtual Boy soon. They're a little hard to find, especially for a good price.
