Day of the Sea - 2017 edition

Written by cafealpha 4 comments
Last Monday was a national holiday in Japan, called "Day of the Sea" (海の日). So I went to the sea, and spent a nice day there.


Priority peter in its natural environment :
very similar to me, but without the girls, and with
a TI89 in hand instead of the TI84+

Three years ago, I spent the whole summer period period at hospital without any occasion to go to the sea. So every time I go to the sea is like a little revenge over my cancer

I hope you're having a nice summer too

Gamer's Cartridge out of stock :]

Written by cafealpha 5 comments
Out of stock ":]". I'm glad to have finished this batch
I don't plan to sell Gamer's Cartridge for a while, because stock of parts to build theses cartridges (electronics components, PCBs, labels, etc) is currently very low here. I'm even lacking of bubble paper used when shipping cartridges

So, what's next ? Of course, Saturn stuff  I plan to use this "break" in cartridges manufacturing and sales in order to continue Pseudo Saturn Kai development.
Main feature to add is cheat codes, which is a bit "heavy" one to implement, because processing in order to make cheat codes working isn't documented in details.
But that will be done ! Also, there are some side quests here and there regarding Pseudo Saturn Kai features. I plan to implement as far I can, so it will be limited only by my free time, my motivation, and flash ROM remaining on cartridge

Seeed Studio, very classy and realistic

Edit (2017/05/11) : finally back in stock
I catched the occasion to make some minor improvements to my homepage, such as adding anchor link to some sections, adding some directions for Japanese users, etc ... and I'm already full up with writing HTML

Edit (2017/05/12) : half of the stock already reserved oO

Cartridges are assembled by hand, hence stock is small, but I'm impressed anyway

Vacations :)

This week I went to the beach

Me at the beach, but I use a TI-89, not a TI83+

I live in Japan near to the sea, but occasions to have fun in salted water is limited, because of the presence of medusa from middle of August, so I should enjoy beach now ^^

Because of surgery and chemos (lost 15 Kg in 6 monthes !), one hour is the maximum before feeling dizzy, but going to the sea is fun anyway
