`Engrish` is not from just any Asian language, but more specifically from Japanese. Because of the pronounciation of `English` into the Japanese katakana system (style of writing and saying foreign words) the L gets changed around to an R (sometimes). Reason being that the Japanese r/l sounds the sa...

How do you have the whole setup for electricity from a wall source? Maybe when you use a battery, you may have jumped something on the board, or something.

Ok opened the screen and got composite in. Apparently the TV guts are the same as a slightly higher (and more expensive) model that takes composite in so this one does as well, just not through a jack. I am going to take a older three way jack (thanks to my broken handycam) and solder that to the bo...

If I am looking at my SFC boards right, they both seem to have crystals on them. There is nothing else that I can see that would utilize a crystal other than a CPU. But I could be wrong. Also, this does not take into account the mini-SFC. I dont have one to look at. (If you are in America or Canada ...

Wow you all forget like the root of every army building strategy game. Warcraft. Or you can play StarCraft or Warcraft 2 or 3. For fighting, UT is the way to go. The original was awesome. Just my two cents.

Can the SNES run on 4.5 volts? Or can a pocket LCD TV run on 5 volts when it says 4.5? What to do??? Oh yeah, I cant find my thread anywhere so I though I might as well post here as opposed to making a new one again. I got a Active Matrix 2.5in LCD for $5 (well 525 Yen). Anyway, said that the backli...

Crystal radios are radios (like the one in your car, AM/ FM that kind of stuff) that uses the properties of a crystal to tune in I think, I built one once but forgot about that. I dont know what beam robots are but they sound cool, someone please tell me!

Just wondering, what are you trying to use it for?
And to help answer your question, I will ask my EET brother if he knows or has any.

If you know what EET stands for, good for you. Now become one.

The PSP is a decently small piece of hardware. Its very slim and sleek. The nifty sleek style that is Sony is shown in almost every aspect of this portable device. Ben, what all do you want to know about it?
