Joystick Building

Unfortunately I genuinely don't have the space I think a 1 or 2 button joystick will do, I never really got into arcade games anyway, the only reason I want an old style joystick is because old 8bit games usually don't control well with modern c<snip>

No car boots in my area. I do have a maplin a couple of doors down from where I work, so I should be able to get a good size plastic box no problem.

Also I don't have a c64 any more, so it'll be either USB or Bluetooth.

Well, failing to find a C64 zipstick/competition pro style joystick for a reasonable price, I'm going to have a bash at making one from arcade parts.... should be fun.

If it takes a couple story high tank of fuel to get a shuttle into space, what on earth makes him think he can make it a mile on steam?!

Black Friday Hype

17th November 2017

Waste of time, almost everything in the 'sales' are reduced from their recently upped prices back to what they were a month or so ago. Everything else is usually just old stock that they can't sell the rest of the year.

Those new kryten glove are horrible.
And why the hell have they reversed Rimmer getting the rules wrong? He should be quoting the wrong rule number then being corrected, not the other way around.

Tooth Truths

I recently had to have a back tooth out because I never had my wisdom teeth removed. It seems they can do quite a bit of damage if you just leave them in there.

Spinal's SNES Controller

Upgraded it, got a handful for lipo charger circuits from amazon and used a battery out of a bluetooth speaker that didn't really work properly. So the whole lot is internal now.

I remember a post way back, might have been here, might not have. Someone in Australia posted a photo of the spider they had on their wall, the thing was the size of a crab, how gravity didn't get the better of it I don't know! I'd hate to live<snip>
