Mad Scientist Wheel Mod from LetsTestDrive



YouTuber “LetsTestDrive” released a video entitled “Logitech G27 Wheel Mod - How To Install Guide – Tutorial” where he took a racing wheel peripheral and replaced the wheel with a larger one. Even as person who mildly enjoys racing sims, this is some mad-scientist level modding.

NES Classic Discontinued

By now I'm sure you have heard that Nintendo has pulled the plug on the NES Classic. Nintendo has now lived up to their long standing reputation of not producing enough hardware to go around and not fulfilling the market desire to have inexpensive versions of the games we grew up on.

I thought this thing was silly when it came out. The whole idea seemed to be founded on pretending the Raspberry Pi didn't exist. Now we say goodbye to the best console Nintendo has put out since the Wii.

Lol. GG Nintendo.

Toying with YouTube Audio Only Embeds

I'm toying with the ID of embedding podcasts that are uploaded direct to YouTube in such a way that only the audio plays, and the YouTube video gets credit for the play. The instructions to do this can be found here.

Here is the latest episode of TCR, audio only, streaming directly from YouTube. Let's hope it works.

Edit: I have rolled this out with TCR 180, but I think the whole thing had limited success. It seems like some ad-blockers are blocking it. Oh well. At least the YouTube embed, although bulky in a webpage layout, still seems to work.
