Was thinking of going "real life" on my profile pic, but can't seem to take a photo that doesn't terrify the heck out of me when I look at it. Think I'll save you all the horror for now.

And now, it's Mouser's turn at the time warp. This order is much more substantial, yet I'd forgotten all about it. Found the parts elsewhere (i.e. eBay and Aliexpress). I think this one was held up by a transistor that became end-of-line during the pandemic.

As luck might have it, some of the parts in this delivery (which came today - woo hoo!) are actually useful for things I'm doing now. So yay!

So, never having a C64 as a kid, and now have lots of them, I'm wanting to play some games on it -- especially exclusives. What are your go-to games on the #Commodore64?

I have just repaired my first ever #Colecovision! 😎 Bought as dead / for parts, it needed a clock repair and a new -5V power line (I've built a small board for this until I get a new PSU for it). Never used one of these before! As you can see, I totally rock at the Smurf game.

I've since added a composite mod, which definitely improves the picture quality (video shows RF). I need to get a proper A/V jack plug as I'm using PCB phono jacks on precarious cables for now. This console is new to me so if you have recommendations on what to try, let me know!

The Addams Family Sega Genesis 1992 At last, I now have the definitive version. Arrived today, all working and in good shape. Scrolling backdrops galore! 😍

Getting to the end of episode 10 of #Andor and then realizing there's two more episodes...

And finished. Andor is easily the best Star Wars drama so far made. Probably the best tv show I've seen all year too. I wonder how many the slow burn turned off though? Bah who cares, I thought it was excellent. SW obsessives can think what they like 🤪

Kinda works . there's a lot to figure out here ( the map update for example ) #nes @matthughson @bbbradsmith color selection looks janky because of .GIF the idea was to have 4 copies of the tiles for 1 per palette entry. when decoding you'd just use the high byte as palette id.

With a month till Christmas, why not play the game Aurora and I made? You can play in a browser or on a real Commodore 64. Details of how to donate in her memory to the Leeds Children's Heart Surgery fund are at the link if you enjoy it. mikerichmond.itch.io/freeze6…

DigiKey has just dispatched an order for me. The order date? March 2021. Yep, you read that right. Finally, I can fit the composite circuit on my ReAmiga 1200!!! (Except... I've kinda got used to it not being there at this stage. So... yeeeeah, nah)

For some reason, it was the 220uF caps for that circuit that got delayed. Panasonic branded. I guess everyone needed those as much as toilet rolls...

[off topic] Genuinely considering adding a Melon Fusk filter. He's become the alt Prez with all the b******s he comes out with. I wouldn't mention it, but for the fact that even on my curated timeline he keeps bleeding through. More than a little tiresome tbh. [/off topic]

Aaaand it's done. Never used filters before. He's there all on his own. Bless him.

New video!👀 Something I love finding in retro computers is retro repairs. A #ZXSpectrum 128k +2 grey that needed some love and attention. And some components installing the right way round. I had fun with this one! #YouTube invidious.fdn.fr/0_RtEEoXXuY

Does anyone have suggestions to fix the cracks on the top of the board when it has no solder perhaps Epoxy or super glue ?
