After building up the power and lands of the Capet family over about two centuries, I had control of the Duchies of Luxembourg and Bourbon, and the lands of the Duchy of Lower Lorraine. Capet family members (and therefore potential allies) held the Duchy of Savoy and the Kingdom of Saxony, both vassals of the Emperor of Francia. Bourbon made me a vassal of the King of Aquitaine, also a vassal of the Emperor. Suddenly, the King starts demanding my lands and titles one by one, because I found myself,...

A gamer and his headset - PART 2

Posted 6th February 2015 at 01:30 PM by delushin

So where was I? Ah yea the good old Astro A50s and the interactive customer support over a known built by design interference issue, that is not an issue - remember just turn it up!

It turns out that all of the wireless and battery and connectors and wires and transistors and capacitors mostly reside in the right ear cup. Then there is some noise gate kick in that adds to the buzz which can be amplified...

A gamer and his headset - PART 1

Retro Console Collecting - Part XII (Schizo Resurrects a Console From the Dead)

Posted 12th October 2013 at 10:25 AM by Schizo (Retro Console Collecting)

Welcome back for yet another installation of Retro Console Collecting - the blog that promises updates, and never delivers!
