Nintendo DS into PDA?

I have an old DS, and it hit me: could a nintendo DS or DS Lite be converted intto a PDA-style storage/ organizing device? The original DS size seems like it could be made into one of these. Maybe it could still run DS games. Does anyone think this is possible? Can you explain how? And what do you think its capabillities would be?

Wouldn't it be nice: MacPlus PDA!

Main Idea: Building a super-efficient-crystal-sharp-monochromatic-PDA based on the Coldfire / Dragonball CPU, using System 6 from Apple's older software page and a utility such as CopyRoms to obtain the ROM from a Macintosh Plus. This way there are no copyright problems, am I right? An impossible Mission?

iRobot PDA or RCX interface

Here are my proposed ideas for the iRobot scholarship package. With todays technology some of the most useful tools are useful because they integrate so well with devices we already have. I have some different ideas about how someone could interface the iRobot with different devices, here are my main ideas. My main goal is to control the iRobot with my Palm Pilot. This could possibly be done via bluetooth or WiFi, but the most convenient solution would be an IR interface. If I succeeded in this I would create an open-source program for the Palm OS that would allow you to remotely control the operation of an iRobot. I'm also interested in interfacing the iRobot with the LEGO RCX (from the Robotics Invention System). Such an interface would allow you to expand off of the iRobot using LEGO components. For example, you could create a robotic arm out of lego, or have the iRobot control a mini lego-bot. Finally, I want to try and use a Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) controller to control the iRobot. This control scheme would feel natural to the operator, while allowing him to guide the robot. Optimally this would be combined with the previous idea (LEGO RCX) for even greater flexibility. If I'm selected for a scholarship package I will work hard to achieve as many of my goals as I can, and I'm sure that the community would benefit from and be able to expand off of my ideas. There is much to gain from the interconnection of todays technology.

Broken PDA charger connector - options for fixing?

I have a Navman PDA/Satnav with a broken charger connector (the part inside the PDA has come clean off of the board and there's no chance of re-affixing it). The battery inside the PDA can only be charged via this connector via car cigarette lighter or usb. I was wondering what my options are for getting it working e.g. charging the battery via other means or direct connection from the charger lead to the battery? battery details here: http://www.circuitcentral.com.au/Navman-PIN-570-Acer-N35-N35se-PDA-Battery-p-31763.html

Anyone know their PDAs, Internet tablets?

Does anyone know much about modern PDAs or "internet tablets"?Background- like a complete eejit I managed to break the screen on the Guide, so after fuelling my fifteen minutes of internet fame it looks like being relegated to memento status. It occurs to me that for the 80 quid it would cost me to replace the hardware I could probably get a much more recent PDA or similar device and have more adventures with that. I'm not very familiar with this newfangled technology, however: the last PDA I owned before the Guide was a Psion series 3 and I always buy cheapo phones that don't double as internet browsers, games consoles or teasmades. Therefore I could use some help sifting through the wealth of devices available for one that meets my requirements. These, in rough order of importance, are:Browser availableCheap!Competent operating system, preferably Linux, preferably not WindowsExpansion card slot for readily available flash storage (CF, MMC, SD etc)Decent-sized touch screen or decent sized screen and QWERTY keyboardPocket sizedCan interface with a PC (running Linux) relatively easilyIsn't a phone, camera or mp3 playerThe only really important ones are the first four. From what I've seen the Nokia 770 seems to meet most of these. Sadly it only supports 2GB of flash storage on RS-MMC, but I can live with that- it seems small RS-MMC cards are so cheap that I could get several and have a multi-volume encyclopaedia :)Does anyone know any other devices that might fit this description, or can tell me more about the 770?

My Palm pda z22 screen resolution is low after a wet accident! can anybody help to fix it?

Hai I recently got a palm z22 to organize my life. It was really helpful until after a week it got wet in my bag. I didn't know initially it is wet. So I tried to use it the next day it was not working. So I try to charge it. Still it was not on. Then I saw that inside the palm cover is wet. So I used blow dryer on low heat setting. Then I tried to on the power button. I got little success. It was on but the screen resolution is very low. I can barely able to read it. Then I reset it. Still it was in the same condition. I let it dry as it is for a day. Then I opened only the back and blow dry it again. Still it was the same condition. The battery is fused to the back cover. I haven't tried to open the front. Today I am trying to charge it to see whether that will solve the problem. My question is what I can do to get the screen resolution back?

What's the easiest/cheapest way to print/stamp text onto leather? Answered

I keep my smartphone in a book-style leather case and frequently use it to find things out via Wikipedia. It annoys me that it doesn't have "Don't Panic!" written in big friendly letters on the cover. This needs sorting. However, I'd like to keep the cost down, otherwise I could have just bought a copy of the Encyclopedia Galactica.... So, how can I best apply the wording to the leather? Can I stamp it? Print it somehow? Would vinyl stickers work? Keep in mind, this needs to be: - Cheap - Visible on smooth black leather - Durable (I'll be carrying this in my pocket) If the best/cheapest option is paying someone to do it, I'd still like to hear about that option. If this is a stupid idea, please also point that out before I waste any more of my life on it. Thanks!

Looking for suggestions for making a very slim battery holder

I use a PDA that, through some questionable wisdom, is powered by two standard AAA NiMH batteries, but are not easily replaceable. They are plastic-wrapped with a heat sensor and two soldered connections which then connects to a circuit board. . These can be replaced by replicating the set up with tape and soldering in the  new batteries, which works fine, but is a lot of hassle. What I would like to do is design and make a battery holder that will cut out at least some of the more tedious parts. Preferably I would like to find a way to just unhook the connector from the circuit board, and then easily extract the two batteries and replace them with no soldering required. The problems are that the space is quite tight, so any method I try will have to be barely bigger than the batteries themselves.

Mod a Magellan GPS

So I recently got my hands on a Magellan Roadmate 6000t car GPS unit. It's pretty nice, and has a touch screen as well as tactile buttons on the sides of the screen. I don't really have any use for it as a navigation unit, since I know my city VERY well, so I am looking into making it into some sort of pda/minicomputer type of thing. Maybe not even for the Internet, just music, photos, etc. However, there is a catch. Whenever I turn it on, it shows a blue screen. This may be because it is run on Windows Mobile, and it has been disrupted, or because of a hardware failure. But when I connect it to a computer, nothing shows up. So I'm looking for ideas on what to do and HOW. Also, I have a Creative Zen Vision W that I think I might want to put win mobile or something similar on, but the GPS is the first priority. So, any ideas?

Notebook with removable pages? Similar to Circa / Rollabind

I'm putting together a DIY planner, but I keep thinking that I want to have the ability to add and remove pages at will. Some DIY examples I have seen that allow this are the classic hipster PDA, which uses a binder clip, and other designs which use opening rings. I'm not a massive fan of either - the binder clip is a bit too I really like the Rollabind ( www.rollabind.com/ ) and Circa (www.levenger.com/PAGETEMPLATES/NAVIGATION/Products.asp) systems. They provide a set of disks, and specially punched paper, that allows you to snap in and out pages at any time. A major shortcoming of this system is that their proprietary paper needs to be used - the system relies on the right shaped holes. The do sell a punch to allow you to use your own paper, but its very expensive. Are there any other systems out there? I might try the rollabind/circa system, and see how feasible it is to cut the paper yourself by hand.

Astronomer's Assistant

My next submission for the Create Scholarship is an outdoor one. And a night. I'm an astronomy student by education and I have had the opportunity to teach both students and the general public. One of the most frustrating aspects of showing folks where particular objects or constellations are located. Just pointing at it doesn't cut it. Unless you get real intimate in their personal space, they have no idea what you are pointing at. Informing them that, "Betelgeuse is the reddish-orange star right there" quickly results in, "they have colors?" I've used a green laser at star parties in the past with much satisfaction however, a shivering hand or a need for both hands for demonstration quickly makes it a hinderance. I would like to build a robot that continuously points at a selected object in the sky and follows it through the sky. The software would convert right ascension and declination and factor in date and time to provide the robot with the proper azimuth (compass direction) and altitude (angle above horizon) to aim with. The Roomba is great at rotating, so I would refine it and add a stepper motor with encoders for the laser arm. It would also have a tilt sensor to compensate for uneven ground. A red-lcd (for happy dilated pupils) display of all the pertinent information as well as object name would also be displayed. The hardware requirements are minimal as the database for popular objects would fit on most any memory stick. A remote control (wireless PDA or the like) for easy navigation and manual override would be also be included. I think most any amateur astronomer or educator would find such a robotic assistant indispensable. I for one can't wait to build it!

A stroll around the park may soon be enough to charge the raft of batteries needed in today's power-hungry gadgets.US and Canadian scientists have built a novel device that effortlessly harvests energy from human movements.The adapted knee brace, outlined in the journal Science, can generate enough energy to power a mobile phone for 30 minutes from one minute of walking.A slow walk can generate an average of 5W of electricity, but they have models that will produce 13W - enough power for a one-minute stroll to provide half an hour of talk-time.The prototype makes you sound like an extra in Terminator, but the inventors are predicting saleable products within 18 months, probably powering (in the first instance) modern prosthetic limbs.Soldiers may also benefit from wearing the knee brace to power the multitude of devices they now carry ,such as night vision goggles and GPS."They treat batteries like they treat food and water - they are so essential to what they do," he said.Link to BBC articleLink to BBC VideoLink to Science Magazine articleThis whole idea seems like a "Good Thing" to me - even without the computer-control, I don't see why a pedestrian or jogger couldn't wear a pair of generators similar to those in wind-up torches, charging phone and PDA as you stroll around doing the shopping or jogging across the park. Get them with a Nike or Motorola logo, and we'd see hundreds of people wearing batman-style utility belts, stacked with all the gadgets the modern human "needs". It could really help wearable computing take off as well.

Multiple Ideas / Scholarship Submissions

My first two ideas pertain to the realm of sports. Luckily enough I have a city park for a backyard that is big enough for me to hit my low golfing irons. The only problem is having to chase after the balls myself thus consuming valuable time and energy. My proposal is to alter the irobot to retrieve the balls for me in one of two methods. Additionally I would also like to enable to robot to possibly record the location of where it retrieves the ball to help in my swing analysis method 1: Add a mechanical arm, cage and rake system a la the golf cart guy at your local range by sending the robot out on pre-programmed sweeping patterns. method 2: develop some sort of mechanical arm that can retrieve individual balls by locating them with an ir detector as the white of the ball contrasts with the green of the grass. This could also be modified by loading the golf balls with RIF chips and having the robot detect this symbol. The second idea is to turn the robot into a living assistant for my grandmother. Some of the various functions that I would look to add include some sort of panic button, or emergency button especially as it pertains to her falling down and being unable to get up, others functions would include picking things up off the floor as she has troubles bending, and assisting in the transportation of groceries and other items through the use of either hamper like structures attached to the robot or a coat tree like structure. Additionally I would program the robot to take advantage of pre-existing sensors so that it could follow my grandmother wherever she went and possibly provide a better platform for her cell phone as she never hears it and complains about carrying it and possibly add some pda like features.

I want to use nerve impulses from muscles as a data input. Answered

I need to find out how to get a nerve impulse isolated and use it as an input.  I beleive a myoelectric electrode with a window comparator may work.  Instead of using an op amp to boost the impluse to run a motor, I want to use the impulse as a data entry signal.  I know that prosthesis use this system and I want to adapt it for signal input.  My goal is to use several nerve impulse sources to be used as a data input device to allow those with CP, or amputations to more easily communicate.  I am trying to bring a very old idea I had 20+ years ago to reality.  I have joined an open source prothesis forum as well as an Arduino forum.  I want to use the Arduino to "translate" the input combinations into a data form that a computer, PDA, or smart phone could use.  I want to keep this open source as I am not interested in a commercial venture. There are basically two steps.  The first is to use an Arduino to convert 5 touch pad inputs into 120 "characters" that are identified with various platforms.  5 inputs will generate 120 combinations (5x4x3x2x1) and that will give me a simple keyboard input.  I have to work up a timing method so that the Arduino will identify when buttons are pushed individually vs at the same time.  Next to have the Arduino generate a digital output that is compatable with a keyboard to keep the application flexible. The next step will be to identify intended muscle nerve signals from background nerve signals and 'filter" out unintentional signals.  Next, the buttons with the myoelectric inputs as the input to the Arduino. My goal is to have a myoelectric (or similar) input device that does not need muscle movement to generate data that is recognized by (practically) all devices.  It could be used for text generation, then voice synthesis, as well as a data signal for motors on the prosthesis to give better control.  Touch screen devices are proving to be a big challenge for those with prosthesis. Thank you, Paul H

Is my book good ?

Well i hate to bother anyone but can you please take some time to read this book i worked hard on ? i spent  countless hours of my free time over the weekend developing the plot and creatures so can you please take some time out to read the whole thing tell me what it needs or what would be good i already am 16 pages into the sequel so tell me if this is good so i can post the sequel ! enjoy Times come by Alby Chapter 1- beginning It was the night I would never forget,the night.......i....the......the last night I would enjoy life. It was spring of 2017 the night air was heavy in my lungs and you could faintly smell the BBQ and charcoal smoke from cookouts that died down hours ago I could here people talking and having a good time but I think my drink I grabbed the wrong beer it was Sarah's it was spiked I never would have noticed who did it at least it wasn't her to drink it. I simply enjoyed the sky line of Chicago filled with sky scrapers and mirror like office buildings it all seemed like a Bokeh picture to me the drug is taking affect on my body I feel dizzy . I hopped on the train, it was empty as for the weather gave a good reason to walk but I needed to get home safely. In about 30 minutes I was home. I clumsily walked up the stairs and almost fell it took about ten minutes before I opened the door, I then plopped down on my bed and ran to the bathroom and regurgitated everything I ate that night. i starred at the ceiling. I saw every detail to the nearest centimeter and then blurry the specks the marks swirled in my vision and I felt weightless for a while. I starred at the clock and noticed it was about 4:00 am and cursed myself for going to that bar with Sarah I threw up all over my bed. I tried to grab the phone to call the paramedics but I fell and hit my head on my night stand. I passed out from the concussion i fell into a deep sleep a very deep sleep. Chapter 2 Change I wiped the crust out of my eyes and felt my head a sharp pain rippled thru my scalp it was a Gash about two inches in length. i walked into the bathroom I pulled the faucet but all that came out was a wisp of air. I snatched a baby wipe and cleaned off my face I cleaned my wound with alcohol the sting ive gotten used to I used to get hurt pretty bad in the army, I got shrapnel in my knee and they sent me home the first year. I noticed a dead silence on the street I thought they probably closed it off for some type of repair. I put on my white tee shirt and noticed its softness and how it fit snug on my semi-muscular figure I was in good shape for a twenty-four year old, my mom would always tell me most of the people in America are fat but I guess she loves to tell stereotypes for what they are. I put on my jeans and not forgetting the belt this time either. I snatched my keys off the kitchen counter and headed for the door. I walked outside and paused too look at the empty streets filled with litter and carnage . My mouth wide open in amazement I asked myself what happened and pondered the different reasons riot,panic,fire what could cause such a mess, I walked towards a police squad car and smelled something rancid I slowly proceeded, I instantly veered back in panic I could not believe what I saw a dead police officer lying face down with half a chunk blown clean off his head. There were pieces of it every where splattered on the windshield and door of the police car and some on the concrete. I instinctively inched towards him and thought to myself that something bad is happening and I need protection. I unhooked his holster off his waist and placed it on mine I pulled off his Kevlar vest and put it on weirdly enough it barely was messy or smelled bad. I checked the pockets of the vest and took out a pair of keys I knew it belonged to his squad car. I first popped open the trunk and saw it glistening in the sun a Ar-15 assault rifle. I picked it up and the memories of my army training it just instantly popped into my mind. I guess it applied the same here, I slung it around my back and walked into the silence. I took out the pistol put in the clip pulled the slide back and switched the safety off and cautiously held it. I believe the gun made me more nervous than whats in the shadows, I walked down the narrow street and saw it the skyline of the city filled with smoke and fire. I stood in anger and confusion my home town ravaged broken and charred blood stained the streets and walls, but why.....why....how could this... I mean what could....d..do such a thing. I walked away in the opposite direction and then cut into an alley way to piss and paused as I heard a roar I looked up and saw a quick glance of the belly of a apache attack craft it quickly zoom by and then another. I looked away and ran out of the alley and then down the street to see what direction they were heading. They sped towards the lake area and then I saw a tiny black object fall horizontally from the choppers belly and it slowly fell, then a explosion. I could feel the vibrations. the explosion ripped the lake area into nothing....nothing..but....but...smoke. My heart skipped a few beats thinking what if the next one falls in this area I quickly broke my daydream and bolted as fast as I could as far as I could until I saw a woman crawling on the concrete she was Moaning and holding her stomach. I came up behind her and asked for help. She turned on her back “ Sarah? Ohh my god sarah are you okay ?” and she held a gun in her hand a Glock 22 model the slide locked all the way back and no clip in the gun. I kicked it out of her and and sprung on her she begged for mercy “albert you have to stay away from me im turning” she saw that I was armed and quickly told me the gun was unloaded and that she was sorry she told me she would do anything just get away from her . I told her “Im not here to hurt anyone I just want to help” I starred at her beautiful figure her perfect face and thin hourglass body but ragged cloths and red eyes from crying. How and what did she go thru that could turn her into such a wreck. She got up and put her arm around my shoulder kissed me on the cheek and passed out. I dragged her to an fenced off alley where there was a mattress I put her down and sat next to her .she hugged me and began to cry she than jumped on top of me “Sarah what are you doing no we cant do this now no!” I told her I will help her but I dont think she understood a word I said. She looked at me in my eyes I could feel her touch my soul, her blue eyes glared in the sun. “i dont want to die alone please” I stood up nervously, I was concerned for her health when suddenly I heard a bang then felt a sharp pain in my leg. I collapsed in agony and saw the cause of my pain a bean bag round I looked up and saw a gas mask wearing figure he shot me with another bean bag round in the knee, from his shot gun he then walked over my numb body and. picked up both bean bag's and threw it aside two people in hazmat gear grabbed Sarah and took off her clothing I screamed “what are you doing to her!!!” they did not acknowledge me they looked at her body like they where searching for something. Her passed out figure limp as a rag doll they removed her pants then her underwear I screamed “No!! you son of a bitch don't do it ill kill you” they studied a bite mark on her upper thigh they made some type of hand signal and left. the soldiers then they came and started pouring gasoline on the mattress and her body. the one with the kriss super V took his cigarette out of his mouth and then flicked it at her it rolled of of her shapely belly and hit the mattress her body bursted into flames and she spasmed and kicked wildly. Then the man pointed it me and said in a British accent “ knock that fuckin Yankee an put em in da ACP double time, thoes hungry bastards are comin” Chapter 3 world gone mad I awoke on a bed in clean clothes and a hair cut. I stood up and walked into the hallway and noticed that this was a hospital. Suddenly a hand grabbed me. “aey where do you think your going ya damn runner rapist” I starred at him & his arrogant look and heavily customized ACR bushmaster. “get the fuck away from me im leaving what ever the hell this place is” he then sprung up and pushed the barrel of his ACR into my neck. “look if you want to get devoured by those runners be my guest buddy but dont go exposing this place to the infection” I looked at him like he was retarded “infection what infection and why the hell is the army bombing populated areas” he looked at me the same way. “ where were you 2 days ago ? There was a virus it was originally H1N1 but it evolved up to 10 times now its got Chicago by the balls and its spreading across the world as we speak turning everyone into animals devouring and ripping people to shreds and then the virus takes over the dead body and brings it back as a runner also know as a fresh undead body that has the ability to run or sometimes sprint god forbid but after 2-4 weeks without food the tissue breaks down from constant use without fuel and they start to get slow and shuffle around” my mind felt overwhelmed I wondered how my parents were doing in Dallas. “so what am I supped to do here but be a waste of space” he grinned. “well you obviously know how to use a weapon and our records say you have been in the military. you cant take care of yourself out there so we will make you part of out kill squad. “kill squad ?” “ohh shit you mean you have never killed or seen any infected yet ? that means your fresh you can be put to good use in our kill team” he told me his name was henry the specialist of his team kill team Charlie-mike. He directed me to the staff sergeant who looked at me and said “well well well we got some fresh meat hope you ready for 3 months of hard core trainin cuz this wont be easy now get yo ass in the garage and clean every APC tire the armory I think the kill teams ran over a little too much runners” 3 Months later........ the training was more rigorous than the basic military stuff a the armory where there was at least a 100 others conversing and grabbing into boxes of gear. Henry took me to the gunny of the armory where he helped me choose my gear. I picked up dragon skin Kevlar with implanted ceramic & alloy inserts. I took some gloves which I cut the fingers of. My boots where the basic digital camo color probably a left over from the war in Iraq which ended several years ago when our president simply drew the troops out. And European troops and some Russians finished off the big time terrorists soon after we heard no more from any our genocidal efforts finally payed off. I went to the weapon stand where I had to fill out a ID sheet to make sure they knew I had training with combat rifles. I chose the ACR which was in stock by the thousands as a gift from the weapon companies to the American army. I pulled all the safety clips and then grabbed a eotech scope out of a box and locked it onto the rail system of the weapon. I attached a mag pull the every one of my carbon strength reinforced clips. The gunny looked at me with a grin and we left for briefing. Chapter 4 things get messy we met up in the garage of the hospital every runner hunter of this kill force a total of 300 men and women in the huge elevated parking complex of the hospital, a general arrived in the elevator his chrome glasses shined in the evening light so did the many badges pinned on his suit which fit his old figure rather awkwardly. he had two formally dressed men with him they both had desert eagles on there side holsters but the general had a FN 2000 slung around his back. it was worn and scratched its polymer body was embedded with and insignia that I did not see so well as it was obscured by the scuffs and grime he looked at us and smiled his mouth opened and he flung his cigar off the ledge of the building he then begun and explained in a dominant voice. “there are 40 spec op Humvee's set up in formation ready to patrol the streets of Chicago you all will be in sector 6 the most dangerous sector of Chicago but no need to worry we have full fledged firepower of 4 APC's which will Carrie your kill team to your objectives take as much time as needed the runners arent going any where. you will clear the sears tower area a hot spot for runners. look all you men and woman, its time to revolt and fight back. its time to say we will not be scared, we will not be intimidated, we will win back our freedom!!” the whole complex light up with cheer. As the two men in formal wear took out PDA's and started directing people to there kill teams the first man shouted “ Chavez,Williams,buck, and,Samson go to APC #1” I quickly advanced thru the crowd to APC 1 I slowed my pace and saw its matte paint job of digital camo and its pop up dillan machine gun turret mounted on top. I pounded on its steel behind and its back door unlatched I stood waiting for the rest of my team I saw all three walking in a line towards the door I saw him ,the man with the kriss super V he smiled at me and said “no fuckin way you tha yankee we picked up in tha alley way you mad cus we killed your little runner girlfriend” I sprung towards him and grabbed his collar and punched him in the stomach then elbowed him in the mouth all the color drained out of his face. “ if you wouldn't of shot me with a fucking bean bag I would of blown your brains out back at the alley” he looked at me and with blood dripping down his mouth “i was just doing my job. welcome to foxtrot 3 by my names john samson you can just call me hunter” I let him go and he limped into the APC then another walked towards me he wore a Grey baklava and tight fitting clothing and a vest that barely covered his chest which awkwardly bulged out he walked towards me and took off the mask. She looked at m surprised face and said “what ? a woman cant be in the military” “well I..I...I just did not expect to have such a high rank personnel on our team” she looked at me and frowend “were both specialists grade one my names Kelly williams” “a heavily armored male in a hijab walked towards me playfully he came up to me and pulled off his hijab he was a African American . “hey specialist now look Im basically here to keep the moral you catch me ? I was in the navy im Ricky buckman Just call me squid now what do you want to go by kid?” I smiled “echo” “nice choice” Albert “echo” chavez I thought in my head I figured that sounds good. We all jumped in the APC while a kill team of rangers in a heavy Humvee with a mounted sentry gun rolled behind us as the whole convoy of kill force 6 prepared for battle. I thought about all my training aim for the head,short controlled bursts a shot anywhere else just stunned them. They move fast so they have to be neutralized if you get bitten or infected kill yourself with the poison capsule that was given or a team mate would do it. I grabbed a Kukri blade off the weapon rack that was provided in the APC I looked at its razor sharp edge its brushed steel surface reflected no light I sheathed it and strapped it to my leg. I caught the eye of Kelly who was fiddling around with the UAV control panel she looked at me and smiled. The APC's lights blinked red prompting us that we are in a hot zone. The APC vibrated as the co pilot took out a pack of runners with the Dillon remote controlled mini gun. We all loaded our weapons and packed up some ammo. Hunter and squid looked at each other and they bumped fists. I put a clip in my ACR and cocked it I turned on the eotech scope and strapped on my helmet and then slid on a black baklava. The APC driver prompted a alarm which was the signal that the door was opening, the big metal door slowly lowered its platform to the ground and we all got out Kelly was the last one out she grabbed that control panel and slid it into her bag she ran out and flipped the close button on the APC. We met up with the four other teams in our sector who already exited there Humvee's. A black Humvee that I never knew was in the convoy rode up and a military adviser jumped out and barked orders like some scared little dog and then jumped back in glad that he wasn't us. He positioned eight snipers on the roof who where each divided into teams of four they zip lined up the roofs and soon each team where picked up by two little bird helicopters the rest of us where on the ground either Humvee calvary hit teams or long range grenade support foxtrot was positioned on the magnificent mile at least it was magnificent. We cautiously walked down the street with another team of 6 watching our back and little birds with snipers covering us and telling us where the nearest pack is. It was empty until we got a report a pack of twenty runners where heading straight for us about 3 blocks away we had about a minute to prepare, snipers took out some and only six broke there steady aim and where 5 feet away, I drew my weapon and just before I could fire a Humvee rammed half the pack of runners over my team shot at there heads to finish them off . I stunted back and fell startled by a runner with broken legs dragging its smelly corpse towards me, my team did not even notice as they where pre occupied with finishing off the pack it grabbed my boot and pulled itself onto my chest I pushed it back and hunter tackled it and shot it once it grazed its ear he then rad up to it and curb stomped its head in over and over, like an egg it crunched under his boot he then walked towards me and picked me up and then our comm's screeched with a danger code: sector red REPEAT SECTOR RED!! this is not a drill!! squid looked at Kelly “OH shit radio the APC radio the APC!!” Kelly hastily radioed the APC and it arrived around the corner ASAP she got in and took the panel out of her backpack all the rangers got back in there Humvee's and formed up a line of vehicle's and the APC was in front we all jumped in and squid popped open 3 of the four combat hatches. We took stance and poked our body's out of the hatches while Kelly was typing away at the panel. “Kelly get us that predator drone NOW!!” “on it Echo..about.....NOW!! get ready for some boom boom boys” she said over the comm a predator drone deployed from a building somewhere and roared across the city's night sky. The little birds shot flares into out immediate area and the military advisor said nervously over the comm “formation green zone ASAP make space for one more hummer!!” his hummer screeched into our circle formation at the middle of the block intersection. We all could hear the uproar and the screaming rage of the Runners it was 9:00 PM and my stomach dropped as runners came at us from every angle swarming in between all the vehicles as we took out as much as we can the advisor yelled. “Break formation head for lane 3 of sector 5 Kelly yelled “but thats a dead end we have no where to go !!” “exactly now MOVE !!” we hastily rammed out way thru the crowd of runners it was easily about 200 to 300 runners we reached the street which was a dead end it was blocked by a collapsed building from all the beach bombing runs. We waited for 5 minutes until we saw it our doom three times as much runners appeared and headed for the convoy. The driver looked bewildered “Get ready im breaking position” he advanced the APC towards the crowd its massive tires gripping the rubble and concrete so agile and quick. He opened fire the Dillon mini gun until there was not one round left. the APC swiveled madly like a dog chasing its tail, all the blood and body matter stuck to the tire made it impossible to control. The whole interior rocked forward on impact with the flipped car. suddenly a screech and the APC flipped over on its side. the runners ignored the APC and went for the group of Humvee's ripping the rangers out that had not locked there Humvee door and devouring them. We herd the screams despite layer after layer of Kevlar and Armour of the APC. My radio started to squawk. “ Pindad Panser down repeat,flipped on its side calling in little bird for support !! bring in UH-60 shadow for medivac ASAP!” I groaned in pain the impact was hard,i could taste blood in my mouth my world was spinning. my team mates did not move they where all laying face down. I soon passed out Chapter 5 delta crimson “Delta crimson GO GO GO !!” I awoke in a sweat, I felt normal again I wiped my blood crusted face off. I leaned up and saw them. “Squid Kelly Hunter Your all alive !” hunter smiled “the crowds not givin up. Hurry mate we got to get outta this APC or crimson is just gonna have to save us” Crimson was an elite rescue squad of some of the best rescue force members in the military marines,rangers,green berets, you name em they can save you. Suddenly we heard the roar of helicopters. Then the door of the APC light up and blew of its hinges a soldier in a crimson baklava shined a light me and my team he latched two metal hooks onto our APC and then the helicopter lifted us into the air, this vehicle the best attack helicopter crafted by the engineer crew over at Hudson base they called it the Shadow because thats all it was, a quick killer in the night. A man made machine manufactured to kill and thats what it was best at. I broke for the chopper and jumped in then squid then Kelly it started to take off right before it left ground hunter grabbed the bay door and climbed in. “forgetting something ?” He threw me my ACR bushmaster which started to look like the generals FN 2000 it was scuffed and marked in every crack and crease. A crimson medivac specialist handed us some refreshments and snacks he said he picked it up at his last raid. He gave me some meds, adrenalin shots use them as a last resort of energy he said. I looked at squid who was holding his dog tag “ man echo you see how that APC flipped on us I almost crapped my pant's” I laughed at the joke even if its not funny my team needs the moral. I looked it the pilot he caught my stare. “where going to the main objective” I sighed and looked away hunter looked at me and made some type of hand signal. “hey Kelly you think we could of died back there” “easily hunter luckily the runners did not find our APC interesting” I looked over at Kelly who was looking at the cracked screen of the control panel. “hey Kelly what all did you use that panel for” “i saved the whole platoon with this thing while you where taking a nap, now its gone and base is a long fly away. The screen broke when the APC flipped. And the predator drone crashed without me controlling it” “damn, nothing good ever lasts long does it” “well echo thats not true your still alive aren't you ?” I we both smiled and when the happiness broke it was back to work. chapter 6 Raid The shadow landed on the roof of a building about 3 blocks away from objective R.R.T.R (runner ruled territory raid) our forces had to kill all runners and take back the sears tower. Kelly was stationed on the roof with hundreds of other snipers .with her barret M82 which ripped into 2 to 3 runners at a time with its large caliber amour piercing rounds. Military advisors sent Ground troops they marched the streets for the main attack on the R.R.T (runner ruled territory). Soldiers of all pact creed and faction marched side by side. the ISF (Iraqi Security Forces) the IRA (Irish Republican Army) even the CIA and DEA forces were marching along with whole police precincts including the bulk of the U.S military. This battle was inevitable and we are going to win.
