Got into the Raspberry Pi game... Now I will never run out of things to play while chilling on the couch..xD   

Nice. Since my brother got me an SNES Classic for Christmas my Raspberry Pi is now my PS1 / MAME machine. It makes a pretty awesome PS1, especially since you can clean up the graphics a lot. So awesome for old school PSX RPGs.

Netgate SG-1000 pfSense router, with the optional mounting bracket.

 

My current D-link router is running on the “latest” firmware … which is from 2010. I figured it was time to replace it.

 

I have a 4-port switch to attach to this router, but I already have 4 cables plugged into it and will need an extra port if I want to add a wireless access point.  So I'll need to get a bigger switch ... and the access point itself. 

I’ll get those sometime next week. For now I’m watching Mark Furneaux’ videos on pfSense to get an idea what I’ve gotten myself into.

Went to a couple flea markets this week and last week and picked up some stuff.

 

Week 1:

Spoiler

large.Purchase1.jpg.6d2fb7777e5b85c6c49a

Working PSP, just a battery that doesn't have any life remaining. Some games and PSP movies too, nothing very interesting. Two GameBoy Colors, one of which worked just fine and the other needed a repair which I somewhat detailed here: 

I bought almost all the Pokemon cards I could find at the flea markets (except for the unreasonably priced ones) and it's unfortunately quite bare what you can get nowadays.. :( 

 

Week 2:

Spoiler

large.5aef6101bc42d_Purchase2.jpg.13dbf6

Some Pokemon cards and two DS Lite systems with chargers. Buttons on both are in awesome shape, touchscreens are alright, the pink one is in alright condition all things considered, but the white one was quite disgusting (as if someone spilled a sugar-y liquid in it) and the top screen has some dead pixels:

Spoiler

large.5aef60feacd90_Purchase2DS.jpg.85b1

But in the process of taking it apart, I unfortunately damaged the touchscreen connected, which will likely mean the touchscreen won't work anymore.. So I'm considered making it a GBA Macro: https://www.neogaf.com/threads/game-boy-macro-unofficial-ds-mod.1171569/

Since the buttons still work great, the shape is nice (IMO) and it has  nice backlit screen (unlike the AGS-001 GBA's I have) it will make for a good GBA system.

Really wish I had money to burn to buy a matte 360 Slim (4GB with a 500GB HDD afterwards, 320GB, or a 500GB) cuz the DVD drive in my trusty Elite is really hating life. As in, you can play a game fine and then a few hours later it refuses to read it.

Well, my friend is buying my 960m laptop and I'm buying a 1250 buck one in August.  I just used part of my laptop funds on this and putting it back in next month.  I sold my original 360 though which was one of those fat arcade models.

Nice. 

I have a SR3100 stored somewhere in the basement. I just need to fix the tuning dial and replace some capacitors for it to be like new.

Ah, someone else got them one.

I got myself one too.  :D I can't wait to push this chip.  It and the board where on sale, so could not resist.

First off, once up in BIOS....turn the light show off.

This be the case it going into.  Big plans for this case, very big plans.  Still need to round up some more parts for this build.

Neat.  How much that cost?  Kind of want to have one to setup on my network.  Heck, I could hide that into my computer case.  :P

I bought it directly from Netgate themselves.   Total with the options I chose was $158, which translated to €129 ... and another €30 in taxes and Customs fees.

Seeing as it is intended as a router and hardware firewall, I would only put it inside your case if your PC is the only machine on your network.  Ideally you'd put this in front of your switch.

Well, my goal is the top of the case to be my network hosting area: switch, router, and firewall.  Right side be my main swiss army style rig and left side be my monster storage/VM rig with cooling housed in the bottom and main case area.

 

Kind of basing the build off my experience with my Guard unit's mobile mutli server setup.  Just, a bit less mobile.  :P

Got myself an upgrade :D Ryzen 1700, ASRock AB350 GAMING K4 and 16gb of G.Skill 3000MHz ram (don't remember what model they are, whatever was the cheapest 3ghz ram at microcenter). It handles Fortnite + streaming 720p60 + chrome open + discord no problem lol

 

EDIT: it's kinda funny but like a minute after I posted this I got my first bluescreen on the new setup lol, couldn't tell what it was tho, was too fast

bought these off a friend.  He switched to a cube case so he sold me this, and he decided to try water cooling, so he sold me his Hyper T4.

 

Only paid $20, which is the price of the cooler alone.  Checked on the case online, and apparently it's a $60, so I'd say I got a good deal.

I am switching entirely to five finger shoes. I really love them because all damping is removed, which means you can feel the ground. The look on peoples faces is also fantastic when they peer at your foot. xD

 

I already have similar ones for running and can only recommend it.
