Also it has an RGB SCART connector and is absolutly lag-free.

wow, that looks hella cool! i would want it but that seems to be the size of an Xbox Original or two from comparing it to that Genesis trio. have fun with it though!



Try a baseprint of 2x2 Xboxes ^^;; It's huge. And that's the small one too!


Also, I got those fresh in the mail:



Because I read it here, somewhere, in a post by Xk. Now I just need to sit down and read.

Just a couple games from Japan, arriving earlier than expected, too~



- Pokemon Stadium GSC (N64)
- Custom Robo V2 (N64)
- Crush Gear Turbo (PSX) [*1]
- Fire Pro Joshi All-Star Dream Slam (SFC) [*2]

[*1: Needs a new CD case, this one's cracked in several places; also no spine card, but that's alright]
[*2: Not actually a wrestling fan, just bought this on the off chance the "Human Entertainment" sticker signified a sample cart of some sort, as they have used that kinda sticker on prototype carts, but it's just a retail board]

Seller is called "japan_4_you", btw; ordered from them before, ex. my Japanese DSi XL. Good prices, pretty fast shipping, lots of handhelds from non-working to very good condition, items are well-described; does not have the most diverse selection overall, tho.

Did a little retail therapy and got a bunch of cheap Famicom games on eBay, only spending about $20.

Got Babel no Tou, Binary Land, Ikki, Majou Densetsu II: Daimashikyou Galious, Ninja-kun, Ninja Jajamaru-kun, and Warpman.

Waiting now for them to arrive in the mail, hopefully before I leave for Chicago at the end of the month.

Found in an IBM box that had been in the attic/mezzanine for some time. Looked brand new, worked great. Replaced my 1995 Model M5-2 with this '1984 Model M'.

Reality is it's a 1992 Model 1391401. For whatever reason, IBM left a (c) 1984 IBM Corp on the right side but that part and the FRU number underneath are obvious. Still, a little better than the 1995 I was using. For the record, it's a white label, not a blue.

recently, my new neighbors had a garage sale possibly selling stuff from the previous owners. they had an iMac G3 and an eMac right next to each other for 10 bucks a pop!! they didnt know it was a computer and sold it as a TV that just works. i bought the iMac G3 since it was in perfect condition, unfortunately, the eMac wasn't looking so hot and i didn't have enough space for it anyways, so i left it there to rot.

the iMac came with no RAM or AirPort card for whatever reason and the hard drive was pretty old so i added 768 MB of RAM and a 40GB HDD. it works just fine now with Mac OS 9.2.2 installed. since this iMac is more powerful than my other one that is right beside it, i might install Mac OS X 10.4 as well.



this is my basement, btw

Projectors were always super cool, but the requirement of having a lot of darkness and space always seemed like it got in the way... they're still neat for getting images in places where you can't hook up a TV though

Maybe it's just my massive hands, but I think it's fine. Here's a shot with a bit more perspective.

And I'm probably not buying anything else for a while.

It does have Japanese voice acting, but the in-battle voices are still English.

Funnily enough, the later versions are only superior in that they let you turn off the attack animations. Kinda silly how that game's gotten rereleased so many times but has so little in the way of enhancements.

Yeah, the lack of an option to disable, or at least speed up, stuff like attack or Geo Panel animations is a bit annoying, coming from D4 as my first Disgaea. It would be worse if I was playing on a real PS2, but since that's currently not hooked up, I've been playing in PCSX2 and I do disable the frame limiter from time to time to skip some slower parts.

Works really well, too! Took a while to find all the drivers and/or the most recent versions of them - any DOS ones especially - but everything's working nicely now, in both DOS and Windows 98SE

eyetoy and games

I got a Playstation 2 Eyetoy and a stack of games for $15 on ebay. I mostly did it for the SEGA game; it has a load of minigames based on early-2000s SEGA franchises. You can dance on Ulala's Swingin' Report Show, insert yourself into a Virtua Fight, sort falling Puyos based on color by waving your arms around, fly with NiGHTS by using your arms as wings, etc. Somehow Nintendo got credit for starting the motion-control phase even though this awesomeness predates the Wii by three years ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
