Cancer : choice of the place to cure it

Written by cafealpha no comments
I don't know how it is in other countries, but in my personal case in Japan, I had to choose a place where my tongue cancer will be treated.
The main reason is that the prefectural hospital where I live don't perform such surgeries for this kind of cancer.
Instead, the doctor in charge of my case proposed to write an invitation letter to an hospital that is competent for this kind of surgery.

Same homepage, new provider

Written by cafealpha no comments
Hi, this is just to inform you that I officially switched my homepage provider from free.fr to webou.net.
I started to move everything from last February, and kept under the wrap until now to prepare some contents in this (dev)blog.

Except this blog, everything should be same as in the previous homepage ... sorry for my lack of free time recently

However, if you like learning Japanese, please find my JWPce I use under windows.
It features unicode support (not from me) and kanji <-> French translation support (from me).

See you, and feel free to send me a comment

Howto : Build Saturn cartridge firmware from regular Saturn executable

Written by cafealpha no comments
In this article, I will explain how to build Saturn cartridge firmware from Saturn executable file.

Note : it doesn't magically convert .iso files to cartridge format ! It only convert standalone executable (typically, a file that can be executed after being uploaded to 06004000 address), and doesn't support programs that use CDROM.
So, basically commercial games can't be converted, and only some (not all) homebrew programs can be converted.

NppFTP : The notepad++ plugin that changed my life

Written by cafealpha no comments
I'm using Notepad++ daily. I should even say I'm using it many times a day !

At work instead of the crappy Visual Studio code editor.
At home in complement with gcc and instead of Quartus code editor.
I also use it to write memo, email drafts, and everything else.
