Lately I’ve been doing a lot of work on the rosco_m68k hardware, specifically on integrating the new Yamaha V9958 video board.

PCB Fab Reviews – PCBWay
Full Disclosure: For the purposes of this post, PCBWay supplied me with a few free prototype PCBs, so I guess you could say that this is a sponsored post.

Wow, looks like I’ve not blogged since February! Doesn’t seem that long, but there you go… I’ve actually been really busy lately, with work and other things. Mostly I’ve been spending some time getting our new app into beta (check it out at http://retroify.me). It’s been a bit of a learning curve for me (it’sContinue reading “It’s been a while!”
