I've been playing the Virtual Console release of Pokemon Crystal Version lately. I remember getting my hands on this game as a child and freaking out about how much more advanced it was over Pokemon Red Version and Pokemon Yellow Version. I named my Pokemon after what was directly to the left of me whenever I caught it. I don't know why I'm telling you any of this. I think I'm going to create a weblog for this inane stuff.
Also check out this guide that talks about how to get your NES up and running. It's basically perfect, and is the reason I've never written one of my own. Console 5's wiki on console repair is top notch, and if it's something you're interested in, make sure you bookmark it.
Happy Easter. Also, Happy St Patricks Day, Happy Valentines Day, and Happy New Year. I've been away for quite awhile. Nothing really to say about it beyond "I didn't come here to update". I'll be posting more in the future. I've made a couple ROM Hacks that I'll be uploading whenever I have a chance. They're not exactly interesting, but someone might find a use for them. Above is a picture of a scorpion that was in my house because I don't have anything else to post right now.

Thank you for everything.
This boy up here is Brak. I adore this wierd cat thing with all my heart. You see, for a former supervillain, he's quite positive and happy. You can read more about him here. This page, as well as many other pages can now be checked out at my brand new links page! Yes, that's right! It's finished and open for business.
And now for some mood whiplash, I wrote this thing about "cancel culture". I'm not a fan of social media culture (which is what this is), or negativity, but I gotta say what I gotta say. I warn you, it's a bit of a downer.
Now, all I gotta do is update the "about me" section with something useful and this'll finally be a fully functional website.
Sorry for the lack of updates. I've been pretty busy with my kids and work the last few months. I hope your thanksgiving was good! Mine was, and I'm happy that I have such a wonderful family. Since I'm not doing modding as much lately, I'm considering making this into a personal blog or something. I don't know.
If you click on it, you can get your very own. Check that place out, it's pretty cool.
One last thing, I've been listening to Achievement by pilotredsun a lot recently. It's very bizzare and unique. I don't really know how to define it, but it's good. I listened to it through twice while adding all the stuff for this update and never got sick of it.
Check out the Famicom Data Recorder . It's why you were never able to save your progress in games like Excitebike. Documenting all of this has been a project of mine for a year or so. The article is still not totally complete but it gives you a good idea of what's going on with it. I plan on going into detail on what you'll need to do to get it running on an NES. I don't expect many people to actually want to try this, so I'm taking my time. Please let me know if you managed to get it going yourself. We can swap Mach Rider scores or something.
I'll post more later I'm sure. I'm hoping to use this space to post NES modding related information as well as anything else that interests me.
