    I'll keep this short so you can go read the long actual story. Boing Boing posted this earlier in the day. AccordionGuy posted about his new girlfriend last week. The next day he received an email from a "concerned citizen." Apparently the woman was lying about her background and very disturbed.

  2. Turn original Nintendo Entertainment System into a PC

    If you go to Nintendo PC you can learn how to gut your NES and put in PC parts. All this for under $500.

    I for one love old Nintendo games. I can't get enough of them. But, like so many others, my Nintendo started flaking out on me. I'd have to blow into the games, then blow into the Nintendo, then try the game. 90% of the time, I'd get a flashing blue screen and I would need to try again. Well, I'd had enough of that, and decided it was time to do something different with my Nintendo.

    I decided to put a computer inside my old Nintendo case. I could run emulators, play games with my regular Nintendo game pad, all on my TV. Of course, this was quite a stretch, but I made it happen.

  3. Nintendo apparently has bad timing

    CNET reports today that Nintendo is claiming to fall short of expectations in revenue.

    Yesterday Neowin pointed out an article on GameCube Europe that states Zelda is driving up GameCube sales.

    Both articles point out the new GameBoy SP is selling well too.

    Considering Zelda was released recently it could be safe to say that future sales will be good. Even if the last fiscal year wasn't as good as expected.

  4. Various info. from Robodex 2003

    Neowin has a post the guides you to an article on the BBC web site.

    The show brings together more than 90 different types of robot from 38 companies, colleges and other organisations, up from last year's 72 bots.

    And over at I4U there are a whole boat load of pictures for you to sift through. All of the pages they direct you to are in Japanese. But the pictures are what you're interested in so it doesn't matter.
