DATELINE OCTOBER 22, 2001:

The Microsoft Xbox turns out to be the suckiest game system ever!

I stopped at my local EB after work today, and tried out the Xbox they have in the store. Man was I disappionted! The Controller is a huge hunk of junk -- it is bulky the buttons don't always register, the dpad sucks! They only had one playable demo, which was Odd World -- after waiting over 45 seconds to load -- it ended up looking like a crappy first generation budget Dreamcast game! Is this the Sony/Nintendo killer Gates made! I am so glad I pre-ordered my GameCube over a year ago!

I can't say how much the Xbox sucks!

It really sucks...

The Xbox sux it really really sux!!!

The sad part is that it is most likely that Microsoft will dominate the game market like they have with all other markets! Why must the world take such ironic horrible turns???

October 21, 2001 - I did some rough testing to see how long the P64 will run on batteries, check it out

October 17, 2001 - I added a picture today (10-17-2001) of where the P64 stands, check it out on the P64 project page

October 17, 2001 - I also added a Message Board today, I plan on checking it daily.

October 16, 2001 - OK, I have made a decision to change direction. I have Version 2 of the NESp in a very good position, and it will be finished at some point in the future.

Anyway, I hooked up my N64 to NESp version 1 through the AV in/out port -- and the N64 looks so sweet on NESp display! My guts turned upside down at the thought of a Portable N64!

I think I will skip past the SNES and build a portable N64.

So, it is decided that October 15, 2001 is the beginning of the P64! I figured I would drop the whole 'N' thing -- it will be obivous what it is when you look at it.

October 11, 2001 - At the request of people who don't know how to read wiring schematics, I added a drawing of what the amp circuit should look like. check it out on in the construction guide.

October 11, 2001 - Here are some more pictures of the NESp VERSION 2.

October 9, 2001 - Today I built the amplifing circuit of the NESp Version 2 right on to the motherboard. This frees up alot more space! I think that you will be very suprised at how thin Version 2 will be! I will post some pictures tomorrow!

October 9, 2001 - Does something look funny in this picture?



Could it be the fact that there is a GameBoy Advance game running on a Wonderswan Color!?!?

This cool unit plays GBA and WonderSwans games!
