Build a Nintendo NES PC author hatsuli dies of cancer

It is with great sadness that I share the news of hatsuli, author of the Build a Nintendo NES PC, dying this August. He suffered from cancer for almost two years. His mother wrote to tell me that he was a great fan of the site and visited it everyday.

hatsuli was a runner-up in the Use It Again! contest for his Nintendo PC, which is currently rated among the top 1% of all Instructables.

You people have no idea how wonderful I feel about your comments that keep coming to this page!
Hatsuli really lives forever.
He is in my thoughts every hour of every day.
Bless you all!

Hatsuli´s mom.

Hard to believe Hatsuli created such an amazing mod idea so many years ago.. where even today, communities like iCade and Raspberry Pi and countless others are still trying to perfect. This mod is a complete inspiration, and I plan to tackle it myself. What a great mind with such great execution! RIP Hatsuli.
