 A cup of joe never hurts!Posted by Incineroar
So the other day I made a tweet that asked about making a Ko-Fi account to allow people to show support to me for things I do (such as making the software for this site which I still plan to publish someday!) Doing all that isn't easy though. Based upon 11 respondents: I decided to make a Ko-Fi page. If you do appreciate the work I do, you can donate at the link below:

 A Gameboy Restoration - My Summer ProjectPosted by Incineroar
So this a quick migration of a write-up I did after restoring a Gameboy back in summer 2017. Just moving it here to keep things consolidated. Anyways...

So this is finally working. It's about time! I now finally have a public demo for this software that can be accessed without any issues. Unfortunately you can't log in - it's only for me, but perhaps that'll change sometime. Now, let's get to work on finishing this trash heap! First though, let's have a little party because I didn't think I'd actually get this software working in the first place, but after pushing through a little bit it's all kosher! Edit: Managed to get Firefox to display the footer bar properly now, so that's a nice little launch update yay! (Update: apparently it's still broken so I'll get to that!)
