Today (11/29) I did...

Today I implemented the keyboard function and the 'Write mail' function in my server.
The 'Write mail' function is only partially implemented, unfortunately, but I'll fix that once I figure out how to format the address-book menu correctly.

See the videos after the break! Feel free to give me suggestions.

Update: November 28th (Thanksgiving)

Ah, what a wonderful day I had with my family! I love Thanksgiving.

I have one or two questions that I've been asked more than once and I
thought I'd address them now.

1. When can I connect to the server? When will it be available?

Not by December. When I started out, it was a personal project that I
was working on during the meager amount of spare time that I had.
Well, it looks like someone has noticed what I'm doing, and I'll be
putting a higher priority on it than I have been.

I'm sorry to have to say this, but there's no way that it'll be ready
by December. December is only a few days away. I don't have the time
or resources to do it yet. I have a mockup server that works, for
basic purposes.

The next thing for me to do involves, in the short term, going to
OfficeMax and buying a whiteboard and some dry-erase markers; and in
the long term, planning out the database system and the relations.

Thanks for your support, I appreciate it. If you have any questions,
I'm open to them. They just give me more ideas!

Regarding my flipnote server

Hey there!

I just thought I should say that, because I'm going to be very busy
until at least December, my flipnote project is on hold. It's just
until I can find the time to work on it...if anyone shows any

What would you think about a wirelessly-chargeable Nintendo DSi?

November 3, 2013

FlashMe, and a lesson learned about the sun.

Today I installed FlashMe on both of my hacked-together DS Lites (the
ones I use for running distribution servers). One of those things
required a 1 kiloohm resistor b/tw two contacts on the board to trick
the DS into thinking it had both screens going. I had to jump the
anode for the 12V backlight on the bottom LCD because the mainboard's
connectors were messed up. I also directly soldered a power cable to
the charging pins so I could just leave the DS lite running.

Well, I learned my lesson about putting my DSs in the sun today: I
picked them up and they were burning hot. My personal DSi stopped
working for a few hours, but now it's working fine. From now on, the
only part of a DS that I'll leave in the sun will be the external
Yagis I'm using to extend the distribution range across the street
from my bedroom window.

Have a good evening!
