Re: What is too politically toxic?

i love how you think it's totally cool to compare somebody to literal mass murderers, and reserve your harshest judgement for the very gentle pushback received in response to that. totally okay to call somebody a fascist, but out of line for me to reply that i disagree with his concept of political...

Re: Super Magic Drive

Update time! I got hold of an old DOS 486 laptop with a real floppy controller. Got it working, even with the 1.6 MB special format! A bit of a hassle, but I dumped the disk with an application called DISK2IMG. Then I transferred the image from the old laptop via a PCMCIA CF-card adapter, the CF car...

Re: Articles expressing amazement over a 30 year old compute

Most people have no idea how a computer works. It's like magic to them. Why would something break down from sitting still in storage? Wouldn't surprise me if people think the electrons fall out or something.

Re: PAL Gamecube video output options ?

RGB is neither NTSC nor PAL. As long as you run 60hz software then all should be fine.

Where is "here", and why does it cost more there? both krikzz and retrousb sell worldwide as far as I know, for the same prices.

If I format a floppy on the SMD, I can save and load games on the SMD without issue. But the disk is unreadable in windows. So it seems both flopp...

I know it is possible via the parallel port, but I don't have a PC with one of those. I do however have a floppy drive on my PC (USB floppy d...
