  1. I hope you guys realize that if I can't sell my shit, I can never help any of you and get anything back to anyone. The systems I'm selling are things I've had for a long time now. These systems are mine that I'm selling. Not anyone elses. The customer systems that I still have (which, if I remember right, is like 5 or 6 consoles) I no longer have access to. Tey're at my parents and I now live an hour and half away from them. I've been communicating with certain people and I'm sending some systems back. I know you guys are on a witch hunt. Trying to get me fired from my job, etc. Whatever. You guys can try anything you want to ruin my life - but I can never help any of you if that happens.
  2. All these "new videos" are just archival footage - dated a year ago. That 5200 belongs to Nuclear Pacman
  3. I'm going to be selling off some of my personal systems to get the money to ship things back to people. I don't want to alarm anyone. That's why I'm telling you all.
  4. Frankly, it's no one's business but I'm currently staying at an IRTS facility. I'm the transition of moving away from two abusive parents who've manipulated me my entire life. I lost money on every single console I modded (pretty much). I don't have access to any outstanding systems. The genesis I ruined in the 68k transplant video was my own. I have video of almost every single console I modded and will probably post some of them in them in the future. I only modded (I believe) 20 systems. 4 of which, I still haven't returned because I can't. I'd like to get this settled, but I can't. I'd like to tell everyone that I didn't purposely take their systems, but it's not like anyone would believe me anyhow. I'd like to get this done with, but there's nothing I can do. Believe me, a ruined reputation is worse than any other form of punishment, so you guys succeeded in reprimanding me. I'll be moving into my own apartment in the foreseeable future. I'll be grabbing my stuff from my parents house and leaving forever. I'll be able to start returning things then. For the record, I got a visit from a detective, and given the circumstances - no action was taken against me since PayPal reversed (I think) every outstanding transaction. I plan to keep soldering, posting videos, and modding my own consoles. I don't plan to ever offer mod services again. It wasn't profitable anyhow and having a real job (while nowhere near as fun) is what I'll be doing for money. I plan to keep post on this forums since I quite enjoy having conversations about a hobby that I so dearly enjoy. But this will follow me on here forever and that's too bad; while the circumstances of my inability to provide proper service is sad - I only have myself to blame for that. All I can say right now is I'm sorry.
  5. Hey Josh. I'm actually working on your system right now. I removed the RF modulator, but I'm having problems getting a clean video signal from the system. It works, but the fuzziness of the video signal isn't acceptable. I'm thinking the problem may lie in the 74HCT32. I'll let you know the moment I have more info.
  6. I didn't post because I don't have an update. When I have an update - I'll let everyone know.
  7. I'll explain this before I go to bed. Too often in my life, I've done things simply for the benefit of others. I've done this so much, in fact, that its degraded my quality of life. It took me too long to realize that I don't have to do anything I don't want to do. I'm my own person, and I deserve to be as happy as others. So when I say that I will make this right - I mean that I WILL make this right. If I didn't want to do this - I wouldn't be doing it. I don't see how that can rub someone the wrong way.
  8. I'll post tracking information when I have it. I've explained myself plenty of times. I don't owe YOU an explanation - only my customers.
  9. I don't have 3 hours to work on systems at the moment. Between health issues, family issues, etc - I'm doing the best I can. David500 is local, and I'm meeting him on Monday to return his Genesis. Because of this - there won't be a tracking number for that system. Also, in order to properly work on these systems, I need to be more organized. So a lot of my time has been cleaning up my workshop. I can't work on anything if things are disorganized. I'm sure people would like to receive their systems properly modded and not a haphazardly assembled mess of wires. A couple systems I'm having some problems with - so I'm trying to get those working again. To be honest - I don't feel comfortable discussing my business. I've showed good faith by sharing more than I ever wanted to about myself. I didn't have to come back here. I don't have to make things right. In fact, I don't have to do anything! I'm choosing to do what's right because I feel I have a moral obligation to do so. I had a busy day today - I'm exhausted. I'm going to continue working on things tomorrow, and will provide an update when I get up.
  10. Yup I do. If I'm not online - it means I'm reassembling systems. Oh, btw I'm still replying because everyone asked me to keep posting constant updates. EDIT: Yes, it takes me 12 hours to do this. Most systems I have are half finished, so I'm going through them determining what to complete and what to undo. It's better than doing nothing.
  11. Two other things are ready to ship. Unfortunately, I just don't know who they belong to. I'm currently looking through my PM history to determine what belongs to who.
  12. To be fair, I fixed my mistake the moment I realized I made it. Also - I don't buy drugs; other than the ones I'm prescribed which are Lamictal, Hydroxyzine, Gabapentin, and Adderall. The latter of which is the only "narcotic" medication I'm on. I'll admit I used to abuse, but that was 4ish years ago. If I take anymore than my prescribed dose - it makes me agitated, fills me anxiety, makes my chest so tight that its hard to breath, and gives me insomnia. Unfortunately, it will likely be a very long time before I change my persona on this forum, but I really hope to do it. It was not my intention to make anyone feel bad for me. I'm the one that dug this hole, nobody else. No one should feel bad for me - these are my problems and regardless of their severity; it was irresponsible for me to ignore everybody here. The reason why I gave you a back story wasn't to make excuses - it was simply to explain why everything is so difficult for me atm. Again, that doesn't make it right - it's just an explanation. Btw, I'm really sorry I disappointed you Osgeld. But the only person I have to blame is myself. Hey drummer. I'm taking one last look at Turbo Duo before I send it back to you. That won't delay how long it takes for me to ship though. I'm just seeing if I can get it to work one last time. Also, thanks for reminding me about Keith Courage. I would absolutely forgotten if you hadn't mentioned it. ------------------------- For everyone else - if I have one of your systems please PM me. I'll get it back to you immediately.
  13. It's actually $45 to ship both Priority. I'm not worried about either system being damaged through Parcel Post because I packed them so tight, and used some big boxes so I could add more packing material.
  14. Updated tracking. Atari 2600 - 9461209699939353556788 Atari 5200 - 9461209699939353556771 Once again - they should be in USPS's system within an hour. I scheduled a carrier pickup for tomorrow. For that's that don't know - it won't register that that they've been picked up until my mail carrier is done for the day. Now if you'll excuse me, my hands are shaking too much for me to type any longer, so I'm going to into my bedroom and hit myself in the head until my brain isn't so stupid.
  15. I'll be the first one to admit that I'm capable of blockheadedness sometimes. The current situation just amplifies this mistake and believe me - I can only think of a couple times I've been more embarrassed. Also - what would be the point of me claiming I shipped things if I hadn't? Pretty sure that would be a huge waste of time.
