This blog is coming back to life! (maybe)

Hello to anyone who might read this.  I happened to think of this blog today as I was filling out an "application" for a research position (clearly written by a psychopath), and noticed on my blog stats that this actually gets some traffic.  Also it looks like all my links are broken, which is what I actually wanted to prevent from happening.  I believe I still have the HDD with all of these apps and tools on it, so I will try to fire it up this weekend to re-upload this stuff.

I'd really like to get back into blogging -- it may not be through this blog but I did enjoy doing GB/A development while I did it.  Maybe I'll get back into that, if I can find the time to make a cartridge connector breakout board.

Since this blog I've purchased a domain, over at embedded-tech.com.  I may move all this content over there (editing out the useless content, of course) and host ALL the content on my own server, that way MediaFire won't give me bullshit like removing my files:
This is usually caused because the file is no longer stored on MediaFire. This occurs when the file is removed by the originating user or MediaFire.

So, that means the idiots over at MediaFire just decided to remove my files?  What the hell?

Anyways, since I've had a ton more experience with both programming and electronics (and neuroscience, but that's rather unrelated) part of me wants to give another shot at fabricating my own flash cart -- possibly even for SNES, since my SNES is still in pristine condition and I'd love to have another copy of Super Metroid to mod to my heart's content.

To sum all this up, I will likely be migrating this blog (and updating the Devrs link!) to my own personal website and server, that way I can keep all of the files locally and won't have to trust the clearly unreliable folks over at MediaFire to keep it.

I'd love to hear from anyone who reads this.  Thoughts?  Complaints?  Insults?  Perhaps you're the person who wrote the application I referred to above?  At any rate I'd enjoy reading comments.
