In other news....Started disassemble of an original Xbox. Looks like revision 1.1 or 1.2.

Clock capacitor has leaked but no bad damage. Needs a thorough clean. Install mod chip and upgrade to a bigger SATA hard drive. Replace the DVD belt and clean.

Should be fun as a emulation station!

Cooked Brazilian pork kebabs for dinner.

Not a hair on them :)

Today I stripped and cleaned my first games console - an old PS3 Fat. Very dirty inside and out. Replaced the thermal paste as well. BluRay drive has an issue - the DVD laser works fine but the BluRay one doesn't work at all. Will need to replace it and do the remarry process.

Or install a softmod and play games loaded from the hard drive!

I feel like crap with severe hayfever but that's nothing compared to what's happening in NSW / QLD! Poor buggers up there!

Its hit 43.2° in our back yard this afternoon. Summer will be fun....

Statistically 6 out of 7 Dwarves are not Happy.

A friend of mine can't pay his water bill.

I sent him a get well soon card.....

I'm reading a book on the history of glue.....I just can't put it down....

Replacement Android tablet arrived today. So good to have a working one again!

So...its just hit 39.9°c in our back yard.....

It's been a so-so week in my head this past week. Lots of nightmares, sleepless nights and high anxiety - all of which lead to exhausting days.

On the flip side - some motivation returning. I've managed to get a few things done and my hobbies are looking more interesting rather than them sitting in my mancave gathering dust.

Progress. Slow progress but still progress.

After another night of bad nightmares my PTSD is seriously playing havoc today.

Sesame Street, a show created for public access television to help kids from low-income families learn to read and write, is being put being a paywall which will prevent the kids who most need it from accessing it.
The past 50 seasons are also included in that so they can't be streamed anywhere else.

Fuck capitalism.

Pirate Sesame Street.

Just bought a Nintendo Wii U to mod and install some HomeBrew! Existing Wii with HomeBrew is awesome!

Retro gaming fun today with my PSP! Doesn't happen often so today was fun!

Hi! New to Masterdon having abandoned Facebook. Also using Disporia as well.

Any hints or tips I should be aware of?

Cheers :)
