Probably just PS1 and PSP titles on there.
I have other (more powerful) handhelds for homebrew :slight_smile:

My USB backup drive decided to bite the dust today. My old drive, a 1TB HGST laptop drive in an enclosure, would overheat, transfer speeds would slow down, and then it would stop working. It would overheat even with the enclosure open and a fan blowing across the drive. I replaced it with a 2TB Western Digital My Passport.

I did manage to get the data off the old drive. I used an old trick from the days of MFM hard drives, ie the “stone age”. I wrapped it in an ice pack to keep it cool. The only downside to doing this, the drive is now dead.

Yea, right. Next thing we see is some odd looking PSP with thinkpad keyboard and 1080P IPS display running 64-bit EndeavourOS. :sweat_smile: :hugs:

Today I just received the fitting rear kit (Samsung SWA 8500S) to the soundbar I bought some days/weeks ago (mentioned that one earlier in the thread).

Now I’m trying to figure out how to correctly set up pipewire for 5.1 support. For this reason I went back using proprietary Nvidia driver (390xx).
Obviously pipewire is only set up for stereo.

I have the Intellimouse Pro in the current version a little over 3 months. The best Mouese I’ve ever had (including several Zowie’s). The current revision also finally fixed the problem with the rubber coming apart on the sides. The only thing that bothers me about this mouse is the Microsoft logo …
