Well it looks like I’m going to be doing some updates to the box before I get started on my NESdrive. I got some RAM for my birthday, which I exchanged for some cheaper RAM and a video card that has S-Video out. I knew I needed the RAM (at least 128MB in order to swap XP Home for XP server) but I decided it had to be attached to the TV if it was really going to feel like a Nintendo.
While I was at home I ripped an appropriate power cord out of the old case I had sitting at home, and borrowed some project essentials from the rents: a soldering iron, some acid-core solder, and a Dremel tool. I also went to Wal-Mart late at night (a popular thing to do in Vero Beach) and picked up some primer-gray spray paint and model glue. Soâ€¦ it looks like the only thing I need to buy will be the DB25 adapter and plastic shield.
