Not that it really matters, but I've looked into SPIN and it is nothing like BASIC. From what I've seen, it's a lot like C and a lot of the programs have assembly language in them to help make the program run faster. Anyway, I'd say that your next step should be to learn C or C++. If those don't sou...

Well, as it turns out, a guy that I work with had a GBO that he didn't mind parting with. Its screen is in great shape, but the lens is a little scratchy. No big deal since I've got the other one that I can swap it with.

@Bacteria: That GB is immaculate......truly badass! If I thought I could afford what you'd want for it, I'd take it off your hands. Anyway, a couple more hours and I'll call the local places and see what they've got. There's one place about 20 minutes from where I live that might have one. If they d...

I see what you're getting at with the freezer suggestion, but I don't like the idea of the condensation that will form inside the GBO when it gets taken out. I'm going to check with the used game store that's near by and see if they've got any of the older Game Boys. They may not have a GBO, but the...

I just checked, and these are the kinds that don't go away with changing the contrast.

My wife bought this one for me off eBay. The person she bought it from said that there wasn't anything wrong with it, and it plays games fine; it's just that the screen has a few dead lines. If it was just on the left side, I would let it be, but there's dead lines on both sides of the screen and it...

game boy classic replacement screen?

I know it would probably be cheaper to get another Game Boy, but I really need a replacement screen for mine. Anyone have one or know where to get one?

@Sparkfist: I've been thinking of doing something similar to what you're trying to do, and here's what info I've come up with. The Propeller chip manufactured by Parallax is probably your best bet if you don't mind learning a bunch of proprietary assembly language. I was going to purchase the Hydra ...

I had a similar problem when I was working on my SNESp. Make sure you didn't reverse the polarity on your power. If you did, you'll need a new 7805 since reverse polarity will fry it. Also, double check to make sure that you've got your SNES and screen grounds connected to each other.

Are you sure that you're connected to your wireless router? I'd make sure that the SSID of the network that you're connected to is the same as what's set up in your wireless router, as you may have accessed another wireless router from one of your neighbors' houses that isn't encrypted.

I just got done looking at doing a compact flash swap, but the old Thinkpads use SCSI harddrives. It's probably more trouble than its worth to do that particular swap. I'm thinking about getting some more memory for it, but I REALLY want to put a network card in it. It would be nice to also find som...

What to do with an old thinkpad?

I just found my old Thinkpad at my parents' house, and it still runs. Its pretty old, though. I think it's a Thinkpad 355 but I can't remember the number. The processor is a 486SX2 and it has 4MB of ram running MS-DOS 6.22. Anybody got any cool ideas as to what I can use it for. If it had USB ports,...
