Replacing the NES 72 pin Connector Monday, April 16th, 2012 by b-knox

I was in Austin, TX a few weeks ago. It happened to be around the SXSW festival, so every business around was trying to be a venue. Herr Prof was doing a two hour chiptune stint at Game Over Video Games, and somehow or other we got in contact. Next thing I know, I am offered […]
