I’m just a skinny guy in its 20s from Santiago, Chile with a passion for electronics since I was a little kid and a borderline obsession for everything about the Nintendo Famicom (or NES as it’s called outside of Japan). I absolutely love the Internet and I can’t imagine life now without it. This blog is my little way of contributing back to it, since I believe the Internet made me who I am today.
My hobbies include video game collecting (especially retro gaming but not limited to it), modding & hacking of old and contemporary electronics, PC system building, restoration of antique television sets, computers and video game systems, old school professional video equipment, dumpster diving, flea market hunting and mostly anything that runs on electricity.
Specific to electronics, I have a huge interest in television and analog video signaling, from generation to encoding/decoding and display. My latest obsession is getting every old computer and video game system I own to display RGB quality video. I am just getting into SMD rework with a hot air station and I’m also starting to delve into the world of microcontrollers. Got myself an Arduino Uno development board for experimenting and a general purpose device programmer is on the way.
At the moment I do freelance work building and repairing PCs, running local area networks, TV repair, video game mods and repairs, and the occasional custom project that usually involves oldschool video games (like reproduction game cartridges or custom tailored mods).
I am a very lazy person, combine that with my electronics skills and you get my desire to automate everything around me. Complete home automation is my ultimate dream. I think microcontrollers will be my gateway into that realm.
I mostly listen to Heavy Metal, Power Metal and Chiptune music. I’m not much into movies or books as I’d like to. I spend most of my spare time tinkering with electronics, learning stuff on the Internet (or just goofing off) and playing video games.
