finally got my ps2 set up to run games off of the hdd (Post)Cool. Thanks for the update on that - I appreciate it.
Gee, it sure is boring around here (Post)

I just wonder what Gannon's up to.

What are you listening to? (Post)

"Last Train Home" by Pat Metheny. This song (and other songs from the same artist) used to be on The Weather Channel's Local Forecasts all the time, and it also appeared on some sappy Publix holiday commercials from circa 2000. I think my brother also used it to annoy me because it was on so much.

Yuka Tsujiyoko, the composer of many of the soundtracks from Fire Emblem and Paper Mario games, cites this artist as one of her influences, along with Hirokazu Tanaka.



Speaking of Fire Emblem, "Blowin' in the Wind" by Juliana Schano is a nice but oddball song on the Thracia 776 soundtrack. Thracia 776 holds a special place in my heart as the most difficult video game I have ever played. I finally found a decent-ish translation that seems to confirm that the song has nothing to do with the Bob Dylan song of the same name.
Nite makes Music, (No, really) (Post)I've never watched the show before, but nice work! I'm glad you're doing music-y things again.
Project Raspberry Pi Famicom. (Post)This should be a lot of fun! I always like it when people do cool things with their Raspberry Pi, and it's a great way to reuse your Super Famicom shell.
Nite fixed my Super NES (Post)My Super NES hadn't been working properly in many moons. After being on for a few minutes, it would randomly shut off. As time went on, the amount of playtime I could get out of it dropped to nil - the power light would go off almost as soon as I turned on the system's power switch.

Fortunately, however, I know someone who's amazing at fixing old video game hardware! I recently sent Nite my Super NES for repairs and a tune-up. Thanks to his magic, my Super NES is back in good working order!

The past few days have been rather unusual with a hurricane approaching, so I haven't had a chance to play it too long, but it's nice to be able to play Super Mario Kart (and NHL '97!) again. It's kind of amazing that the battery still works in Super Mario Kart - after all, this cartridge is now about 25 years old, so the game has technically been powered on for a quarter century.

Unfortunately, I have mixed reviews for my friends at the United States Postal Service. I had to use USPS to ship my package to Nite, since FedEx and UPS won't deliver there. The people at the post office were helpful and friendly, but the Super NES shell suffered some moderate exterior damage during the cross-country trip. It's a long trip, but I tried to be pretty careful in wrapping it, and it would've been nice if it had been treated a bit more gently in transit. Fortunately, the innards were unscathed.

So if you ever need a piece of old game hardware repaired or modified, Nite is your man! Just be extra-careful when shipping it using the postal service - feel free to go overboard with the bubble wrap and FRAGILE stickers!
The best part of waking up (Post)The best part of waking up is cerveza in my cup!

(I don't actually drink coffee. Or cerveza.)
Nite paints on things that are not canvas (Post)Nice sparkly Super NES! The combination of sparkly and super things made me think of this Citi commercial from 2012.
Fun with Regression Analysis (Post)Most of the members here are also members on MFGG, so I was wondering: Is MFGG more active when this forum is active, or does this forum tend to cannibalize the MFGG forums?

After crunching the numbers, I found that there isn't a significant correlation between posting activity here and on MFGG. When I did a regression analysis comparing post activity on the BT Forums and post activity on MFGG, I got an R² value of 0.0346 - which means the model can explain about 3% of the variation. Basically, there isn't a relationship between activity here and on MFGG - activity here doesn't cannibalize MFGG, although it also doesn't increase activity on MFGG.

Now you know.
What are you listening to? (Post)Total Eclipse of the Heart. There may be a reason I was thinking of this song!
