Hi everybody, I hope you had great holidays
On my side, I was busy with holidays during second half of July and whole August, but now back normal days routine
I plan to write a blog article about my holidays, but since preparing it takes longer than initially expected, please accept this small article to give a proof I'm still alive even after an handful of typhoons that crossed here during this summer
And, as I'm back to normal days routine, I would like to introduce to you -and in exclusivity- a free virtual tour to cafe-alpha's Saturn cartridges productions facilities
... Well, I'm too lazy to take a lot of pictures, so let's introduce the cartridges warehouse #2
I own three warehouses for storing cartridges before putting them on sale :
- Warehouse #1 : receives cartridges from production facilities, and waiting for final QA testing.
- Warehouse #2 : stores cartridges from warehouse #1 after QA testing. Also stores cartridge labels.
- Warehouse #3 : stores cartridges which failed QA, or cartridges not for sale such as USB dev cart, or old prototypes, etc.
Warehouse #2 front entrance.
In the background can be seen the iron table ... not for
soldering, but for clothes
Please wear helmet before entering
The inside of warehouse #2
There are several labels available for Gamer's Cartridge, and I let user to choose their favorite one during ordering process. So in order to speed-up ordering process, I usually prepare one or two cartridges with popular label ... and hope that user will choose it
Of course, I also keep remaining cartridges with Action Replay labels (as received from cartridge shells supplier) so that it is possible to respond to unusual label choice too
Capacity of warehouse #1 is similar to warehouse #2, and there are no plans of construction works to extend them : developing and assembling Saturn cartridges started as an hobby, and I really don't want all the magic and fun from this hobby to vanish by making production, management, etc as serious as a work activity
