(Not for sure, but some low unplayable number like that, especially in the later levels.) And to be honest, I'd jump on getting "The Orange Box...

Re: NEs portables are getting better

It's an FC Mobile with proprietary add-ons aimed at people without consoles. WTF is with that button layout? I hated the backwards a/b on the original, now they've gone and rotated them? Why does everyone think that the TV out on the FC2 is new? It's not. The original had it. Having owned one of th...

NEs portables are getting better

The new FC Mobile looks like it's going to be a big hit. With wireless controllers, TV out and a wireless Zapper...I dunno, it'll be tough to beat? What do you guys think?

What? He wants RGB though :?

He wants to plug his composite video system into an RGB screen. Since the screen can't take composite input, no go.

Re: Fixing Xbox 360s as Summer Income

IU like your idea, but as Valium said, it's not perfect. Even my Idea for money is far form perfect. Doing what Custon NES guy does but for every console. To get consoles in working condition for cheap is hard, then try to make a profit out of it, as today nobody wants to buy expensive stuff. (That'...

Re: Which are the best sites to build a project blog site with?

XCVG - Yes, I do, cost me £70 a year for a .com and site; it would be nice to just have a free method instead, however, if there are benefits to keeping a domain then I will. Dark-Aries - Can't do that in the Google option; it forces years and months showing, or nothing at all - which is the only n...

Re: Which are the best sites to build a project blog site with?

Great, bicostp - will look into Wordpress. If that is better I will use that instead (as long as it doesn't need FTP'ing or HTML; I don't do either). Is there any way to just keep project titles and not have the empty months and years showing - I know it is a blog site but i'm not using it in the n...

Using Google for their blog. Got it set up. Have a look - think it looks neat: http://bacteria-modder.blogspot.com/ - only test stage at moment, so little there. Will use it for completed projects mainly. Early days yet, only put a couple of bits on there to see how it looked, that is all. Needs a ...

Re: oh my god....i just the red ring of death : (

Microsoft's warrenty on RROD is 3 years. You're fine. Stop babying. Mine's used and still hasn't RRODed, and I don't care if it does. It still has an extra year on it since it's from 07. MS atleast did something right with RROD warrenty.

Re: Which are the best sites to build a project blog site with?

Blogger or Wordpress. I dunno bout the PDF part on both of them though, and you can create links to seperate posts if you'd like to. I honestly would make a blog for such a thing though. If it helps wordpress is the same thing that Ben uses.
