Patents are quite a bit different than copyrights, and cost a lot of money. The first thing that you do should be to make sure that no one has patented a similar item meant for the same purpose. With patents, it doesn't matter whether or not you've created something that you thought of yourself. If ...

Custom gaming keyboard and mouse for PS3

As some of you are probably aware, the PS3 is capable of supporting a keyboard and mouse for gameplay, but not all games utilize it. I've been thinking about a way to hack a sixaxis controller into a custom gaming keyboard and mouse, but I'm having some trouble figuring out the best way to tackle th...

I hate to say it, but I wish I'd never purchased my Wii. The new Zelda was fun, but I can't play any of the other games for more than a few minutes. The motion sensing aspect of Zelda was well implemented, but in other games it just gets old really quick. If it wasn't for the virtual console stuff, ...

Nice homebrew dude. Any chance of making a graphics upgrade to it? Maybe a plethora of new colors perhaps? Just suggestions, but it looks good as-is. Definitely. Levels are easy...getting the game mechanics to work properly is the harder part. My next release will have all the mechanics fine tuned ...

If you've ever played Lumines for the PSP (or even if you haven't) you should try the game that I made called Clonemines. Here's a link to the release thread which has screenshots along with a download <a href="http://forums.qj.net/f-nds-homebrew-software-and-releases-65/t-clonemines-v02-release-133...

I used to be the same way until I got over the need to constantly re-invent the wheel.

Unless you just really want to know mySQL and PHP, Visual Web Developer Express and SQL Express are a lot more noob friendly.....and free. You can build all your pages without actually having to write any code. You just have to have a web server capable of hosting ASP .NET 2.0 pages.

Bacteria's answer is the simplest answer. I was going to recommend some tricky relay wiring until I saw his post.

No way to know for sure without having one of these things to test with. There was a limitation of 4 gigabytes for memory sticks, but that was due to using the 1.50 firmware as the base for the custom firmwares. Suposedly, that limitation is gone as long as you're using one of the newer firmwares th...

My first move would be to run an IP scanner on the same subnet as the wifi access points and see if I could determine their IP addresses. Then, from a wired connection I'd see if I could access them via telnet or a web browser. Depending on what kind of access points your school has and how they wer...

That may be true, but here's what wikipedia says CompactFlash defines a physical interface which is smaller than, but electrically identical to, the ATA interface. That is, it appears to the host device as if it were a hard disk of some defined size and has a tiny IDE controller on-board the CF devi...

I was already aware of the size limitations, but I didn't know that there was more than one way to access a compact flash device. I thought they were originally designed to act as small solid state IDE disks. *EDIT* I just did a little more searching, and everything I've found says that there is no ...
