What I want to know is this - apart from Engadget and Hack-a-Day, what other sites was this project posted onto - there have been over 123k viewings so far. Perhaps someone could list the other sites this project was posted onto?? It's on Digg, but I didn't submit it. The most popular one is a dire...

Any chance of getting more information on what you did? Is that wire wrap wire? Also, what are the two extra chips on the N64 motherboard?

Is that an L button on the back?

This is truly amazing. Not many things bring me back to Benheck nowadays, but this might actually bring me all the way back to portables. I have to hear more about all you did.

It says in the original Time Fountain text that, since they're strobing, it's not that harmful. Just…don't stare directly into them for a few hours, or even a few minutes. If you're cautious, you shouldn't get hurt.

It depends. I generally don't listen to "current" music. 99% of what's in my library is at least a few years old. • Music from many video games, including… - the Zelda series (The Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, The Wind Waker, Twilight Princess) - Metroid (all games except Hunters and II) - Chr...

One possibility is to get Ni-MH AA-sized rechargeables and battery holders. Wall chargers for these are easy to find, and you can usually get both batteries and charger in a single package. The disadvantage is that an N64 takes 7.5v, so you'll need at least 6 or 7 batteries. Since cheap chargers onl...

Well… You'll need something to generate the 3.3v that the N64 needs, and what's common around here is a TI DC-DC converter, which you might be able to get for free. I didn't go that route myself, but many others have. As for the difficulty, N64s are easy to accidentally fry (usually by static disc...

I am 17 years old, as of May 2. My iPod is 3 years old, as of June 6.

I found the forum after I read about Ben's stuff online and bought the book.

Cheap car amps have 15w/channel, up to 21w/channel.

They're also designed to not draw a ton of power, since some people sit in the car with the key on ACC to listen to music (and don't completely drain their batteries).

If you can deal with 15w/channel, get a T-Amp.

All I can say is that when you hook it up to your computer, be quick. I don't know how NiMHs react to being charged like li-ions…

Just for reference, I have a 2.5 year-old 3G iPod. I stopped using the backlight unless necessary, and the battery STILL isn't dead.
