This week at Console Classix

Well, last week really, but I'm posting about it this week....

Anyways, the parts finally came in (yesterday) for the new NES reader I plan to work on this week. I actually have to go pick up some SNES carts to dissect for the project. I know it's a loss, but what can I do. They will have to lay down their video lives for the greater good. Plus, we can still use them really. I need to remove their ROMs, but that won't trash them, it will just make it impossible to play them on the SNES.

I made some changes to the browser and rolled out an update. We added a “Random” button so you can take wild ride to who knows where. It reminds me of when the Doctor put the randomizer in the Tardis. (If you don't know what I mean I am talking about THE Doctor and Time And Relative Dimension In Space) We also updated the Facebook Status Update code. Now it's easy to turn the status update on and off. Of course, the more you guys use it the more traffic we will have. You all know what that means. (More games and features!)

Belief it or not that basically ate my week up. I also had some tax stuff to take care of, but for the most part I was working on the browser.

As I mentioned, I hope to get the new NES reader up and running this week. I probably won't get it done in time to get any new NES games up Wednesday, but I'll do what I can. I am probably going to work on adding the categories to the CC browser although, again, I may not get it finished this week. I want to add a commenting system on the game info pages. The user review system is good (although we really need to keep up with it better), but I want something that allows a bit of back and forth between players. I am also planning on doing more blog posts and, as I mentioned in my last post, I am enlarging the number of subjects I touch on. Last, but not least, I am probably going to work on getting more video up soon. I want to show you guys how we go about building an adapter and what have you.

For the moment I'm off. Have fun, cause I'm gonna!
