incredible show from some epic performers. i shot a time lapse. it came out surprisingly well.
After watching the Mario movie with kids, i dropped original NES Super Mario Bros on them. They enjoyed the new (to them) gameplay, while marveling at the limitations: you cannot go back? With me remembering a surprising number of secrets, i got a bug in me to revive this ancient trick. Unfortunately, i wasn’t able to get it working correctly in the limited lives i had. Undaunted, i finally completed it just a few days later while waiting on an OS upgrade.
my favorite part was that it overflowed the numerals and became pictures when displaying the remaining lives. if you got too many extra lives, it ended the game.
There is just no describing the awe and magistracy of exiting that pipe to see Super Nintendo Land in all it’s glory! I was very impressed. However, that impression was short lived after i learned there was only a single attraction. Mario Kart: Bowser’s Challenge’ ride was fun and included some novel new interactive play. However, the interactive elements of the land were few and behind long lines and the required $40 NFC wristband. (my flipper read it as a NTAG I2C Plus 1K ISO 14443-3 NFC-a) It seems that there is only one quest to do involving the collection of four keys. There also appears to be some interaction with the Mario Kart ride, though the specifics were unclear. As the primary draw to the the park this visit, it was in turn the biggest disappointment. i hope this 3D Bowser makes it worth it.
I was invited to a puppy party. Piles of cute! I had a blast! Brought to us by Bliss_Bulldogs.
I came across a damaged Starlink cable. on closer inspection it looked like twisted pairs. so i spliced it like an ethernet and it worked perfectly. This might be a great way to extend your existing runs, or to wire it more cleanly than expected. more info on github.
