Operation successful. The patient is alive and well.
I managed to break my PSP on Saturday. I dropped it onto a concrete floor when it fell off my jacket pocket as I was dressing up. The battery popped out, the drive shot the media out. It was quite a pectacular crash. My friend noted “if it survived this, I’m getting one”. So I put the battery on and power it on. Smile on my face. “Look”. But then the UMD drive went reading on and on …
After not getting any specific date from a local SONY Service and the need to ship the PSP to Prague, I decided to order the drive and apply czechnology. If you’re not in a hurry, these guys have the drive fairly cheap. I wasn’t sure to trust the $8 shipping either.
The process went fairly well, except it took a lot longer than I expected. I did manage to screw things up in the process. When trying to open the outer drive bay door, my screwdriver went a little too deep and broke the knob on the side. Superglue saved the day. Also when putting back the controller buttons I didn’t position the pad precisely (it fits into the LCD frame) and the right button didn’t work properly. Apart from that it went fine. So now I can compare the insides of the PSP and the gp2x too as I broke the gp2x’ headphone connector as soon as I got the console. It’s like comparing a macbook pro to a didaktik M (my first computer). A milimeter is a lot of space inside the PSP. Being inside the gp2x is like being inside a rintimpin.
Now I need to start looking for a decent case.
So aparently if you drop your PSP onto a concrete floor it goes broke.
The greatest firefox theme there is. I’ve used a number of themes over
time, but this is by far the best. Everything about this is just professional
and beautiful. Thanks for making such a great theme.
This theme is better than ever. Highly recommended!
Beautiful modern theme. I love anything that can customized.
Of course there’s still the most popular theme of them
Any freelance artist looking for a neat icon project may be interested in an

not ring a bell immediately, the Houdini suite of apps certainly has a name in
the CG world. And SideFX are looking to give their apps a Tango

I wonder if you can provide a gstreamer pipeline that would transcode an
MPEG2 Transport stream into a DV stream and shift the source by one pixel row.
The source is interlaced and appears to have the wrong field order.
I happen to have a nicely edited movie that blinks like crazy on TV due to
the fields beling the wrong order.
