Re: pspgo build maybe

I'm a big fan of doing things "just because," but in case you were not aware, there is a very active retrogaming community around using software-modified PSPs without ripping apart the hardware. Based on what I saw when looking at a PSP Go, I figured it would be much too little space to do a quality...

Re: Portable arcade I made from a 1960's clarinet case.

This is AWESOME. I love building in old cases. I especially love that it looks stock from the outside.
