    Paid for my new glasses. I should be able to pick them up in a week or so.

    After I went to my local retro game store/ pawn shop and found a Suparetron hd for $40 so I got it and Super mario world for $15. Planing on ordering some repros of games that cost way to much, but I'll eventually will buy a real copy of harvest moon snes.

    It works great. I was planning on buying one eventually off amazon but they sell them for $90 their, so for $40 I'm happy.
    Also I have 4 US snes game carts and 15 SFC carts from japan. All are rpg's, if I'm not mistaken.

    I brought myself World of Final Fantasy for PS4 last week. Decent enough little game but seems.. simplistic and easy? I'm an FF fan so I'm enjoying it either way, especially the little cameos!

    I forgot
    Snagged an auction last night for a Toshiba Portege Z30-A for only $60. Has some i5 4xxx CPU, either 4GB or 8GB of RAM, and if my research is right either a 128GB or a 256GB mSATA SSD. Not too bad, for the specs of it. Only thing wrong with it is the SSD has a password on it, but I should be able to clear that pretty easily. If not, at worst I'll just have to finally pull apart my busted Surface Pro 2 and steal the one that's in there.

    Will probably upgrade it to 8GB of RAM if need be and use it as my work laptop over the Asus U31SD I have now, which will be a nice improvement (only has an i3 2130m and a GT 520M, which even an HD 4400 beats out)

    I also ordered a Raspberry Pi 3 with a Pi Camera V2 for OctoPi which is arriving today and the printer (a Geeetech A20M with dual color mixing) is arriving on Monday.

    Just won an auction on this nice-looking IBM Thinkpad A22m for a mere 4000 yen (~$35) :D

    Won a Ebay auction for a Japanese super game boy for $5. I haven't found any US/Canadian versions in over 2 years. Paid for it this morning.

    Also bought my bus ticket to mississauga. On it right now. Will be at the reptile expo in about hour and a half.

    When you say Japanese super game boy do you mean the first version or the second one? The first one I feel like you could find everywhere a couple of years back.

    First. The super gameboy 2 is like $50 to $60 right now. And yeah it's been about 2 years since I last saw the 1st in retro game/pawn stores, at least near me. So I just bought a Japanese 1 on ebay.

    It is, but also harder to get hold of. I also believe you can fix the clock speed of the older one so it runs at normal speed now.

    As far as I know the only difference between 1 and 2 is that 1 runs like 5% faster, has less backgrounds and no link port. Atleast that's what I've read. And I would definitely have gotten the 2nd if it was the same price as the 1st. Love that transparent blue

    Thanks. I may do it. I just got to try the super game boy 1st and if it bugs me enough I'll do it
