I'm graduating from an undergraduate Computer Science degree this year. As such, I am applying for graduate schools. U of T, U Vic, U BC, Queens, and Waterloo. I think I will get accepted into them all. As far as teachers being overpaid, my father is a professor, and we have discussed it at length. ...

I don't know for sure if this will work triton, but often air bubbles can be coaxed out of liquid plastics by heating the air above the plastic. So running a blowtorch near the seal (not directly onto it) might resolve some of these concerns.

I think this issue is more complicated than people really give it credit for being. I don't know if Ben has, but if I were Ben, and I were going to quit my job to make and sell mods for a living, I would have consulted a lawyer regarding the legality of doing so. Perhaps he could fill us in on this....

I have seen this in person, and the screen looks really lousy (low contrast, a very washed out screen), I wouldn't recommend buying it.

Sounds like a bridge, did you do any soldering? Is their any material on the contacts of your exp pack that could be bridging something?

Sorry about it being a bit cryptic. The 'diode' is actually meant to be a NOT gate. I did that drawing on some very preliminary research, but would now do it differently. The upper of the 2 transistors would be a PNP transistor, and the NOT gate would then be unnecessary. The lower of the 2 transist...

I realized that my drawing won't work, I'm re factoring it right now, doing some research. Well, your drawing won't do it, but lets get first things first: How many cells are you using, and does your set up charge the batteries in series or in parallel using only single cell voltage. That's going to...

You can wire up the device so that when a + voltage from the charger is present, the battery --> game connection is cut off and the voltage from the charger is the only thing that is presented to the drain represented by the game boards and screen. Isn't that exactly what a transistor does? Could I...

Just out of curiosity, how much do you think I can sell this for? I would really like around $5000 USD, a lot of effort was put in.
$2,000 max would be my guess.
Just out of curiosity, what is this guess based on?
