    Vintage Computers

    My long weekend project ... Something I wanted to try for a while ... I'm using an Arduino to load a ROM file from an SD card into an 8k static ram chip that the Atari 2600 then reads as if it is a normal EPROM. https://github.com/dadecoza/atari2600-arduino-cart

    How Huawei screwed me over

    I'm subscribed to a local electronics repair Youtuber that recently posted the below videos telling how Huawei said his phone had liquid damage and their proof was a photo from another phone's PCB ... He asked to share his story so here I am sharing his story :) He is probably also lurking...

    Share your current setup and future plans

    The netbook I mentioned in my post above also has an rtl-sdr dongle for monitoring aircraft transponders. We are a couple of friends that share the data between us and don't upload to flightradar24. We use Virtual Radar configured with our stations.

    Share your current setup and future plans

    Home automation on a budget ... Raspberry PI running Home Assistant and MQTT broker. ESP8266 monitoring alarm panel and sending MQTT updates. Old netbook with usb-dvr dongle connected to the front door peephole camera. There is also a script monitoring my wifi router for connected devices.
