Steampunk Playstation One

Last Friday I was looking through some of my old stuff when I found my old PS1. I was wanting to try doing a case mod on an old NES but i thought this could be a bit more fun. Anyway after brainstorming some ideas for designs I settled on a steampunk-like style. So far this is about all I have done. But to explain what I'm going to do to it just mouse over the pics--\/ Let me know whatcha think.

Broken Playstation controller. Help? Answered

Well, last Saturday I bought a Playstation controller from a yard sale. It was an original PS controller, you know, the ones without analog sticks or rumble motors. Anyways, I plugged 'er in, and it played fine. I was able to play for hours with no problems. I woke up the next day, plugged it in, and nothing. The controller just stopped working. I've tried several times since then, and it still is not working.  I cleaned it all out on the inside, I made sure the buttons and button contacts were clean, I cleaned the part that connects to the Playstation, but it still won't work. I tested out a couple of working controllers in the same controller port, and they both work fine.

Inmate makes tattoo machine from PlayStation

A prisoner in the UK wanted to ink some skin so badly he made a tattoo machine from a Sony PlayStation. He did it by attaching a motor from the PlayStation to a sharpened ballpoint pen. It must've worked because he gave tattoos to others before he was caught it was taken away. Sony PainStation via Inhabitat

what game is this?

I don't have much information about this game aside from a vague description, but if anyone recognizes this, please speak up. So... What I know about this game, is that it is a multiplayer "rail shooter" type game for the original playstation.  I remember that each player controlled a crosshair  and each crosshair had a special attack.  I remember the setting looking almost post-apocalyptic with destroyed buildings and tall skyscrapers.  If anyone has the remotest idea of what I'm talking about, speak up please. I'll make sure to check all of the games in this genre.

Yabasic (for the PS2)

I found Yabasic as an extra for a PS2 demodisc, and i recently dug it out from my Ps2 pile. it is a fun and simple piece of software for creating small programs, in which you type a command (eg. print, input, goto, beep etc.) and then a piece of text. here is a code for a simple number guess program, sorry for mistakesREM Number guess gameprint "I am thinking of a number between 1 and 50, try to guess it!"input a$if (a$>13) thenprint "your number was larger than mine!"goto inputendifelseif (a$<13) thenprint "your number was smaller than mine!"goto inputendifelseif (a$=13) thenprint "My number was 13! Congratulations, you win!"Feel free to edit the prints, and the number doesn't have to be 13. there are other things involving string variables and other commands. heres one called identitiy finderREM Identity finder programPrint "What is your name?" :":input a$Print "How old are you, ",a$,"?" :":Input b$Print "And where do you live, ",a$,"?" :":Input c$Print "so your name is ",a$,", you are ",b$," years old and you live in ",c$,", correct?"Pause 5Feel free to add more string variables, just add them as d$, e$, f$ etc.anyway, post coding for more yabasic programs, and use the stuff above!

PSP Fix, Need Help

Hello all! I recently aquired a broken PSP 1000 as sort of a challenge to myself. Now however, I actually want it to work. I need some help with the fix, so here are the problems I have been able to identify: -PSP won't always charge, I strongly believe it is the battery though. When I tilt the PSP around at different angles, it will charge. Also, fiddling with the battery makes it charge. -PSP won't tun on. I have checked the power fuse, and it was burned out. I placed a jumper across it like so many internet guides say, and it now has continuity. When I hold the power switch, the PSP will do one of two things:                                  1. The light will turn off, and then turn back to solid orange (charging)                                  2. The light will turn green for about 0.5 to 1 second, and then turn off -PSP will make a rythmic clicking when not charging, doesn't seem to be a problem though. -Battery is cracked, and I don't know if it works properly because it won't maintain proper contact with the PSP. I have also checked the backlight and USB fuses, they both have continuity  so I'm not worried about fixing them. Right now I would just like it to turn on. If anyone knows anything, please make a comment, perhaps someone else has this problem. P.S.  What is a pandora battery? I keep hearing about those, what do they do? Also, what exactly signifies a "bricked" PSP? Thanks UPDATE: 11/08/2009 I had a friend test the battery, he said the battery works and he charged it for me.  Now the PSP turns on. But, (there's always a but) there is no activity on the LCD. I tried bridging the backlight fuse with tweezers to see if the fuse was the problem, no luck. So what now? All I have learned is that the charge circuit doesn't work and that the PSP turns on with no activity. I held a white LED flashlight up to the screen, but I didn't see anything. any suggestions?

Computer *LAG-O-RAMA* Fest

'Sup. So I have a cheap crappy computer, (even i realize it) and on most games it should work smooth; but it lags. VERY often. But it lags on every game similarly: It would work smooth for about 10 seconds, and then it would be like playing a playstation game on a windows 98. Over and over again. It lags on most the games i have: Battlefield 3, just cause 2, saints row 3, mafia 2, even on gta san andreas. This is very annoying and my parents are alittle stingy on money. H3LP M3 PL34ZE??

Does anyone know how to disable an xbox live gamertag?

Last night someone stole my 360 and my playstation 2 and PSP, laptop, and TV.  I don't need to worry about anything except my 360 right now because that automatically signs me into Xbox live. So I need to figure out how to disable my xbox live account so the thieves don't use it anymore. Anyone know what they are doing?  If it helps, I still have the PC version of Halo 2, so I can sign into xbox live using that game since its on a "Games for windows" platform.

PS360 Controller

I'm planning on making an Xbox controller with a dualshock 3 controller inside.  I'll be making one for me, but I'm looking to earn some money so I'm curious if anybody would be interested in buying a second one for themselves.  Keep in mind this won't be cheap, it will cost up to $100 in parts alone.  While I don't have a lot of experience, I have a lot of skill (see my tvbgone sonic screwdriver for an example). Lastly, keep in mind this is not a sale yet, just gauging interest so I know whether or to make a second one.  Leave comments here on requests for aesthetic features, and PM me if you have a price you'd be willing to pay.  Please only reply if you're serious.  Expect to see a sale post sometime in July, I'll be going by best offer.
