    Last week I finally got my package with the parts needed to finish some fixes/mods, so I've been busy. The first fix was a Sega CD (model 2). When I bought it and brought it home it wouldn't turn on, the culprit turned out to be a blown fuse. It's not a difficult fix, so after adding a fuse holder and a fuse everything works like a charm.
    After that I decided to finish my SNES supercic mod which actually needed to be fixed afterwards. As it turned out I lifted the wrong pin (25 rather than 24) on the PPU, so after another quick (albeit more difficult than the last) fix everything runs smoothly on that regard as well.
    Following that, the next project was a Casduino in a printed case, which surprisingly worked out just fine as well (I'm not gonna lie, I expected at least one of these projects to fail miserably).
    Finally, I made a small nightlight for my niece, and slightly modded a 3d print of Koholint island to have a LED in the wind fish egg.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I could not fix it but I replaced the Power Supply for my N64 today. It was making a buzzing sound when turned on and this was causing lines to show up on the screen. Replaced it with a 2nd power supply I had and no more lines or buzz. Opened up the old Power Supply and saw the caps on it were starting to bulge. Safely put it in the trash after that.

    I've just modded my splitting maul. Speaking more clear I've sharpened it. If here are people who use this tool for cutting wood or maybe for some kind of other activity they probably know how important to sharpen it. Anyway it was quite hard work to do it and I've done it well enough. I followed all tips I'd found in article https://cozyhousetoday.com/how-to-sharpen-splitting-maul and got exactly that result I'd expected to see. Rate it guys!

    Installed Coreboot on my Thinkpad X220. I'll be completely honest: I haven't done it due to free/open-source software related reasons (I support FOSS, but disassembling my laptop and hooking its SPI chip to an external flasher just to say "it's 99% powered by free software now" is a bit too extreme imo) rather mainly because I needed to mod my BIOS to remove the whitelist and replace/upgrade the Wi-Fi card anyway. I already had the right equipment for the job so I decided to give it a shot as that'd also give me other benefits compared to the stock BIOS as well (faster boot, ME cleaner, custom payloads, unlocked flash, etc.)

    Flashed TWRP, Magisk, and EdXposed on my Note 10+. Didn't even want to upgrade from my Note 9 unless there was at least root. Just gotta wait for devs to do their thing and release custom ROMs
