The time has come to retire my giant hoard of scsi hard drives and arrays. Some of these have been in use for me since high school or offline keeping spare copys of stuff safe. This all equals a couple of terabytes, but keep in mind back in school for me the average computer only had a 80 or 120 gb drive.
DOS booted from a vinyl record... omg :)

for two years i've been developing a project known as MegaGRRL. it's a portable sega genesis music player that uses the original sound chips, and plays VGM files from an SD card.
the portable version is still in development, but recently i designed a simplified, desktop version of the player, and i'm happy to announce that the schematic, PCB, firmware, and 3d print design files for MegaGRRL Desktop are now available for anyone to build.
if you're an FM synth nerd or just a fan of chiptunes, check it out!

Computers and things and stuff.
I find cool stuff and fix it up. Plans to start a museum for it all.
