Added to Store: Card Edge Connectors for PC1-XT Adapter

If you want to build one of my open source projects, the PC1-XT adapter, which allows you to use some XT/ISA style expansion cards with the Commodore PC-1, you might run into problems when trying to source the specific card edge connectors that are needed. At least if you are only out to buy one or a few of each connector. Therefore, I have now added a set of these two connectors (60 pins angled + 62 pins straight) to the store which should make things a bit easier. You can find them by clicking here.

New webshop

I will probably keep selling some of the products on Tindie for a while, but the main channel will be the webshop, going forward.

A mod for the NES64

While on the NES64 you can switch between the A button and D-pad Up for jumping in games, Edwin Steiner found a clever way to mod the board in a way that will still give you those two options, but also give you a third option letting both buttons work at the same time. He was kind enough to write a very comprehensive Howto on his process, so please go check it out if you would like to modify your board yourself, or if you would just like to see how he did it.
