My UMD drive isn't working, I'll have to try this. What's "hover"?

I hope they port WoW to one of the next gen consoles soon, but with my luck it would be a PS3 exclusive :) although "WoWii" does look like it would be an awesome marketing tag. I use my Toshiba satellite to run WoW and it only bogs down in Ironforge with a lot of characters on screen. I may try incr...

I've seen HD-DVD's for sale in porn shops. (Yes there are actual physical building that sell adult themed movies and toys, it's not all on the intratubes) and I think the fact that the players are already out and signifigantly cheaper make HD-DVD an easier choice for most adults who may be intereste...

The twin plays games, but they look circuit bent (sprites in wrong places/ etc) and I've tried cleaning it / wiggling connections to see if I can get it to improve, but I think there may be a bad chip / ground / something in there that's not worth any more of my time. The disk drive does not work, e...

WTT: my famicom stuff for PC parts

I'm trying to network my house with a few old PC's and I am looking for a few parts including mobos,CPU's, RAM, DVD-ROMS,cabless, video cards, etc. I have a dozen or so famicom consoles (all but 2 are working and those that don't work probably need new 7805s) and some famicom games. I can also get D...

The board is a "microstar ms 6312" and one of the first things to come up on a google search was "bad caps" which would explain my weird powering down and rebooting problems I've been having. The little thing should be pretty decent (for something pulled from a dumpster) if I can get it to work. edi...

I'll need to research board types some more before I can say exactly wht type of board it is, but it is in a small form factor gateway PC with a P3 1100 mhz CPU. I tried installing a 6 gig HDD I had already loaded an OS on, but now the whole computer powers off while booting. I'm going to try replac...

How many installs should it take?

I've actually dug the old doorstops (computers) out of my closet and decided to either do something with them or find them good homes. I just wondered why some times it takes several tries to install linux or windows. I've got a micro that won't take either. Is this normal or do some of these comput...

I've been looking into replacing my 20-something inch thrift store CRT within the next couple of years and I'm looking at projectors. (BTW the smallest plasma I've seen is around 40 inches, all the normal sized flat panels are LCD's). There are a few decent projectors out there for this price range ...

Wanted: Atari stuff

I keep not buying one of these off of ebay, does anyone have a console, controllers and a couple games they would throw in a box for me? I have a crapload of famicom consoles I need to find a use for and other stuff sitting around collecting dust.

It had an odd plug on the back that I'm guessing went to a mac then? It looked like a 17", but it was in the "junk" section of the store which could mean that it's either so old the store doesn't want to warranty it or that it's untested and maybe broken.
