Fire Behind My House!

The pictures pretty much say it all. Expect that I came home and it was over. Thank goodness the wind was blowing the fire away from my house!

Fail: Game Packaging

I saw this at my local Walgreens, I love those cheep Chinese game controllers. They are all loaded with all the same bad games. In case you cannot see the fail, just look at the image above "…OR IN THE CAR". Clearly not in a car at all.

I fixed my broken Turbo Express!

A huge thanks goes out to nat on the forums for finding the capacitor that is the cause for no video with backlight problem that has happened to a lot of TurboExpresses that suffer from capacitor plague.

Last night I was able to remove the faulty capacitor and replace it with a new one. My Turbo Express is now working great! I had about a year ago replaced one of the 3 audio circuit capacitors to restore sound, but I will be replacing them too. I have to decide if I am going to replace all of the capacitors in the TurboExpress, or just wait for the next malfunction. It think it is probably best to wait.
