    Hey guys. I have a hobby of working on console and arcade hardware, so I thought I'd share some of the fixes and mods on the blog here.

    These aren't going to be instructibles or the like, mainly just overviews so you can see if it's something you'd like to tackle. There's tons and tons of resources out there for all of these.

    So, full story. My mom is a sixty-three year old widow that lives alone. To counter the idea that she'd be an easy robbery target, she has a huge great dane that could probably eat my leg in one bite. The problem is she is an entirely set-in-her-ways person that regularly gets up early in the morning and walks the dog pretty much at the exact same time, so, if anyone were casing her place, it'd be easy to figure out when to do so.
