:lol: Yeah, you've got to be quick when you're changing a boy. Girls just soak whatever you're changing them on. With a boy, move too slow and you could be taking it in the face.

One good thing about me being a night owl was that it was very easy for my wife and I to take turns with our son when he was a baby. By having different sleeping schedules, we hardly ever missed out on any sleep.

Also, I don't know why this isn't mentioned more often, but cover your boy's crotch with a wipe when changing him. That way, if he pees, it usually won't go anywhere. There may be times when he either pulls it away or he is able to simply pee hard enough to knock it off, but this method works 95% of the time. I've been peed on maybe two or three times at the most in his lifetime, and even then, it was minor.

I've become adept at keeping a butt wipe over his junk while changing ;)

Yes, and it's something that my one partner and I are working on as far as a product offering goes. What console(s) are you thinking?

Sleep has been weird. He's breast feeding, so I can't help too much at night when he's hungry unless my wife has pumped and bottled for me. We're getting the hang if it slowly.


So, I made this for a vendor of mine who's been particularly great and since I'm sort of at a loss for time to produce mods for myself, this is my only new addition to "was bored", did mod" :)

Pretty much the major legacy systems; NES, SNES, N64, Genesis, Saturn, and Dreamcast. The only ones I haven't seen converted to wireless are the Genesis and Dreamcast controllers, are those possible?

Commenting so my tapatalk keeps me updated with this thread lol.

Makes me want to mod something.

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

Hmm, pretty cool!  The bottom of the center stick is oddly flat.  Wonder how it feel in the hand.

 

 

Picked up a Gyromite fami adapter a few weeks back, was bummed that it doesn't come in a nice shell.  I already have another business related project going on with a replacement NES cart shell, so I whipped this up ;)

I think your new business venture is Earthbound Zero repros.

 

Good plan.

 

I just visited your site, looking forward to premodded Nomads.

 

Congrats on the baby.

Guuurrrgggh! Must have Earthbound Zero reproduction! Seriously, how do I get on the waiting list? Also, do you still have any of those GBA back-light packages? I picked up a few original GBAs off of eBay and was planning on restoring them.

I can, but it's really not my thing so much.  I try to avoid using automotive paint as much as possible just because it takes a ton of setup and cleanup.  It's really only worth it to me if I can do a bunch of parts at one time.

I don't do waiting lists just because the list would get really long really fast. I'm gonna try and crank as many of these out as I can over the next month or so.  Hopefully it'll be enough to meet demand.

 

I do indeed!

I didn't mean the automotive paint part so much. More the designing. I don't care about the painting.

Just some of the things done were super cool. Like the controllers and what not.

:) Can't wait for that.

Also since I just thought of this have you ever thought of using a 3-d printer to do custom shells or something of that nature.

The last time I inquired about these items, I wasn't in a situation where I could be spending money on a luxury mod like this. I also only had a single original GBA, the first GBA that I ever acquired, the day that the system first launched. I have taken very good care of it, and its in pristine condition. I honestly didn't feel like modding it, not even to improve it. I want to keep that first GBA spotless, with no additional changes.

 

But thankfully my situation has changed, and thanks to eBay I got my hands on several old, cast-out GBA systems at very reasonable prices. And these dusty, dirty, damaged GBAs are in need of an overhaul. I've put in my order for two of the GBA backlight kits. (one 32 pin and one 40 pin) I went ahead and sprung for two of those scratch-resistant glass lenses. Just couldn't pass that up.

 

I have new external cases on order from Hong Kong. As soon as they get here I'll crack these units apart and make them shine again. I'll post some before/after shots when I'm finished.
