2 Weeks With The SNES Classic Edition

As the title suggest, I’ve had the SNES Classic Edition for about 2 weeks. That’s been enough time, along with my work schedule and Xadara stuff, to manage to complete everything on Super Mario World and to play all the way through Earthbound. Sure, I’ve touched on a few things – unlocked Star Fox 2 …

The Graphene Theme 2.0 Killed My Website!

Seems like every few months I have something happen with this site that makes me have to either nuke a feature, or go into some kind of emergency “find an old version and throw it on the server” moment. Previously, an update to my podcast management software of choice wound up no longer working with …

How Terrible Fans Ruined Space For Me

Ever since I was a child, I absolute adored space, both the idea of the place, the planets, moons, stars, and other things out there, and the exploration of it – rockets, missiles, men on the Moon, I couldn’t get enough of it! I’ve been learning what I can about these subjects for literally as …

We Have Burnout – Hostility In The Space And Rocketry Online Community

Cutting straight to the point, I’m somewhat burnt out right now – namely, with regards to SpaceX, space subjects in general, and a few other things. Reading comment after comment on the SpaceX front has certainly been a chore, having to see them mentioned in every single space related subject ever is itself quite annoying, …

One Year Ago I Discovered The Cult Of SpaceX

If you had asked my opinion of SpaceX on Septmeber 26th, 2016, I would have told you that I loved them, and that I was excited and happy to see posts relating to their projects, launches, and the like. If you ask me today, I’ll tell you I still like the company, and some of …

How To Survive The Apocalypse Without Really Trying

In case you missed it, Saturday, September 23rd was the end of the world! Not that you could tell by the fact that not a single thing has changed at all. Oh, wait, I’m sorry, it looks like the nut job who predicted doomsday has gone back on it, instead now saying that Saturday was …

Farewell, Cassini…

At the time of this articles publication, the Cassini spacecraft should no longer exist – at this point in time it should have vaporized in the atmosphere of Saturn, the planet it was built to study and always destined to be a part of. This is happening quite early in my time zone – a …

I Found A 3DO Console While Thrifting

As long term readers are aware, one of my hobbies is hitting thrift stores, antique malls, and other such places and seeing what all I can find that may be of use, interesting, or otherwise something I’d want. The past few months have been somewhat dry beyond the usual odds and ends, but back on …

The Reality Of That One September Morning

If there is one thing that I just can’t stand, it’s conspiracy theories. More over, conspiracy theories relating to a certain event 16 years ago today; an event that is better documented than most anything that had happened before, or in many cases, since then. September 11th, 2001. Oh yes, for pretty much every year …

Repairing the Melcor 390 Calculator Part 1 – An Exercise In Patience

So, after many many delays, I got the Melcor 390 calculator fixed. Oh, it was an absolute joy to get done soldering the capacitor in and finally seeing the LED’s fire up with “EEE1” and other garbage data, as this little calculator does when it’s first powered up. If you don’t know what I’m talking …
