Very cool piece of hardware!

One piece of advice, do not put boards on anti static bags! The outside is conductive and can fry your board.
People say it isn't that bad, but better safe than sorry. Put it on a piece of cardboard if you are protecting your table ;)

Not trying to protect the table, was trying to protect the board! I'll put it on a piece of cardboard from now on. It usually resides INSIDE the anti static bag so it made sense to take it out and place it on top. I shall no more though!

Thanks :)

It looks like it's on standoffs, anyway, so there should be no worry about the ESD bag (but, likewise, it won't actually help much, either). Putting a bare board on cardboard is probably not good, ESD-wise, though. If you do much electronics work, invest in an ESD safe surface for your bench, and make sure it's well-grounded (aka "earthed").

(BTW, PM reply sent!)

It is on standoffs. Ok, scratch the cardboard =P
What about just being on the bare wood? Would that be ok? You're right, an ESD surface would be ideal..definitely something to look into!

Thatís pretty cool; Does it have a case or is it just a board? It sort of reminds me of R-Zone DataZone (without itís shell) except itís based on the excellent selling Gameboy Advance.



No joke before it powered on and before noticing the edge with the GBA cart, I thought it was a DataZone deshelled.

No, no shell for it, it was just used so some devs could create software before the final board was finished. This is as pretty as she gets =P

These are probably my most obscure bits in my collection. A pair of Elsa Revelator 3D glasses from around 1999, and a tandy/bandai electronic gold game from around 1980.

That's cool, what's up with the glasses? I haven't seen them before
