@jonobie I've really only ever used them to scrub off solder flux residue and other crud on electronics I try to resurrect. That need was quickly fulfilled years ago and still going strong now, meaning I've thrown out all brushes since.🤷

@Gammitin Given what I see on console fixing YT channels, I feel like the owner of this old Megadrive went on to ruin several later generations of HDMI ports in seemingly impossible ways.

@mcc I did not, somehow. My NIN preferences have evolved quite a bit over the years, but I could probably find some joy in those. Thanks for giving me some more musical threads to follow.

@mcc Good memories here, though I remember none of the movie itself. I was introduced to Badalamenti solely because I *had* to buy all the CDs with Nine Inch Nails songs back then. It provided some really delightful tangents I'd never have taken otherwise between Lost Highway, Natural Born Killers, and The Crow soundtracks.

Holy crap…it actually resolved in my favor. The company claiming copyright ownership of the silence in my video has released their claim.

Now, burn the entire system to the ground!! 🔥©️🔥

@directhex That sucks, though still not surprising. Sadly, with Steam installed and the Sega Classics (fastest to download), even the Series controller didn't work once I was in-game.

@directhex It seemed to "find" my Elite 2 controller at one point (not after a page refresh), but it wasn't recognizing any buttons either time.

@directhex Not that I'd be surprised, but which one were you trying? I just got a Series-generation controller to be recognized on gamepadtest.com. I'm installing Steam to install a game to test next.
