just gonna write this videogame post up real quick for time.
i thought the gamecube couldn’t use sdhc cards at all, but swiss-gc works fine with it. if anyone got a modded cube from me, i made an iso with swiss embedded that boots off a xeno. some games work streaming directly from the sd which is surprising, might be a cool thing to add to a more fancy mod.
i have some minidvds but i got a bad brand or something cuz the cube hates them, i just took the lid off and stuck a nc momentary switch on the lid sensor for regular old dvds. i set the laser to 145ohms, i needed to write that down somewhere cuz i forget how low the gc needs to be to read stuff correctly.
ive had 3 gameboy players but ive never seen the actual real gameboy player disc. always had to mod n burn

xbox one is a dumb name
i dont know how anyone was surprised that the new xbox and ps will not be backwards compatible. the additional cost would be beyond belief, it’s not just like flipping a switch be reasonable.
i know why publishers want an online pass style system for used games and i know why billy everyman is terrified of it. i’m just concerned for 10 years down the road when i actually get one of them things, if the servers are all retired are all the games lost to time forever :o that would be sad
the design of the xbox one is clearly modeled after the nes for retro appeals to oldsies. take the extra step and make it woodgrain and i might go for it during its official lifespan.
the original xbox is a more functional media center than the 360. that makes me feel bitter somehow im not sure.
there is a 1f(!) cap in original xbox’s’s which is kinda like the lifespan limit of a replicant, it uses it for the clock, but they will all eventually rupture and potentially damage the mobo beyond repair. beware :o
there is very likely a wii-u drive emulator currently in beta testing. i know it’s inevitable but. i dunno it’s too soon for that, let them sell some games first cmon.
blood dragon looks fun, i only played it for a few minutes but it’s probably worth buying just for aesthetic appeal.

Part of me wants to get really excited, but private corporation + reality show definitely makes me skeptical about it. Also, would you go on a one-way trip to Mars if you had the chance?Aren’t moonrocks poisonous though? I thought that was the reason they held off trying to colonize it.
lunar dust is toxic. but if you’re building an entirely self-contained enviroment for humans to dwell in with elaborate filtration systems (LIKE WE WILL HAVE TO DO FOR MARS COLONISTS) you can work on keeping the dust’s contact with inhabitants minimal.
plus i mean there’s not exactly wind on the moon, unlike mars, so it’s not like you’ll walk outside and OH NO DUST EVERYWHERE JFKFABFBBLORRRG WHY IT’S CLOGGING ALL MY INTAKES HELP HELP
it’s a hazard but it’s to me? a lot less of a hazard than OOOOOPS OUR COLONY RADIATION SHIELDING FAILED WATCH US ALL DIE HORRIBLY IN A MATTER OF MOMENTS

Do you think that would inspire more people to go if we find life on Mars?
i honestly feel that the rovers can do that job just as well as a human, without the potential danger to human life.
Anonymous asked: As I fellow space nerd I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts about Mars One. Part of me wants to get really excited, but private corporation + reality show definitely makes me skeptical about it. Also, would you go on a one-way trip to Mars if you had the chance?
first off no i would never ever take a one way trip to mars. not because the four years in confined seclusion are daunting (i mean, what are college dorms preparing you for if not that?) but because mars itself is really fuckin cold. i am not a fan of the cold. at all. i’m more a canidate for a manned mission to venus, if anything. acid rain is no biggie next to THE COLD.
as to my thoughts on mars one? i dunno. i’m…torn. on one hand the reality show is certainly going to be nothing short of watching these colonists die. maybe quickly. maybe they’ll live five or ten years successfully, but eventually they will start to die off. do we really want to watch a reality show version of jamestown during the starving time?
but on the other hand, look how well the social networking and general public awareness campaign of commander hadfield went. people are suddenly interested in space again. space seems real and reasonable. and i feel like that’s incredibly important to keep that feeling alive in the mind of the public.
BUT if the colonists die horribly, that’s a PR disaster for space. i mean jesus look how challenger and columbia went over. look how laika went over. people just don’t like hearing that space killed anyone. it makes them scared, and like they don’t belong out there. and suddenly funding gets pulled and interest dwindles and…i dunno.
ultimately it bothers me to send anyone on a one-way ticket anywhere i guess.
oh and even if we started terraforming mars today it’d take us close to a millenium before you could walk outside with minor safety features like an oxygen tank.
i really feel like we should be fuckin about on the moon - which, by standards of space travel now, is a shorter trip back and forth than from the US to japan - before we consider zipping on off to an enviroment where a failure of your protective gear will cause your blood to simoltaniously freeze and boil all at once.
