  1. games system wise - what would people be doing with them?


    Well, one of my ideas, for example:


    Using a Gameboy to emulate a serial LCD (HD44780 or a graphic controller) via the serial port, and also pass button presses. This would be a cheap way to get a display and UI for various microcontroller projects. It should be possible to do that in the 256k of onboard memory so you wouldn't have to use a flash cart.


    That would be amazing. Someone please do this :D

  2. Not exactly sure whether you'd call these unusual but here goes:


    -Original HP Vectra (PC Semi-compatible from 1985)

    -An e-Reader for my Gameboy advance (the card reader where you could tediously read a tiny program by scanning around 10 barcodes)

    -A still-functional (AFAIK) Game Genie for my original Gameboy

    -A still-functional (AFAIK) Game Genie for my (broken) NES.

    -All sorts of other peripherals for that old NES including a power pad.

  3. -original Apple USB keyboard (the ones that I don't like)

    That's still my main keyboard on the Mac mini. I typed out some code updates for my site last evening with it. :beige:

    Well they are small, have missing keys, and the one I have is hard to use as a hub since it requires excessive force to plug anything into it. Otherwise they aren't that bad, I'd just rather be using my pro keyboard.

  4. Today I dropped by the local college with a friend and checked out the free computer stuff (for the *I've lost count* time) and got:


    -Farallon AAUI to BASE10 ethernet adapter (my second one)

    -Modem Port to female DB-9 serial. I'm really intrigued by this one, is this essentially a null modem cable or is it something else?

    -PC-Card to BASE10 ethernet adapter, probably going to use this on the Armada 1750


    And for the record my friend found:


    -a very long ethernet cable

    -original Apple USB keyboard (the ones that I don't like)

    -and a fairly large (17"-ish) CRT monitor


    Not a terribly bad "haul", if I do say so myself.
