Mini-teardown time:
It's a Unirex 2.0 Alum8gb flash drive.
blank back
Pop! the lanyard end is glued in, and once it's removed the whole internals slide out the back
Partially glued onto the PCB sticker too, which probably wasn't intentional
Here's the other side.
It's a P283170PS1400011-V2, apparently, which is an overly long name
The chip is a Phison PS2251-70, which is a USB Flash Drive controller, supporting USB 3.2, for drives 4-256 GB, with 30 MB/s read speed and 15 MB/s write speed.
(That's the bottom end of the PS2251 line)
It's got a little LED on the end for activity.
The chip on the other side is a flash chip, but it's really hard to make out.
It's a 521-181009058, HV? MFC
maybe HVT? HVI?
The QR code just is the text on the front, so that's not useful.
It's weird that it has "warranty void if removed" on the inside, though.
but yeah, I can't find the details for that chip.
It's just a very generic 8gb flash chip
I did find a picture of what looks like the same one, but it's more readable.
apparently it's HVTJMFC, which still gives nothing.

I thought I'd play Wario's Woods for #NESWeekend but I forgot two key factors:
1. this game doesn't have a score counter
2. even though I haven't played in a year or two, I'm apparently still pretty good at it. I'm on level 61 now and I don't know when to stop
obligatory mention of the one fact anyone mentions about this game:
Because the ESRB was formed in 1994, there are no NES games with ESRB ratings... except this one.
The game was the last officially licensed NES game, which is why it was late enough to have an ESRB rating. It was released simultaneously for SNES and NES, with the tech versions being basically identical other than some graphical differences

Time for another teardown!
This is the Stealseries Sensei [raw] Rubberized gaming mouse, model M-00001, product number 62155.
This is one of the (surprisingly) few mice that have left and right buttons (that can work at the same time), an ambidextrous design, and can be used on linux.
But the right mouse button is going on this one so I gotta replace it.
Opening it up, we see the main PCB

Welcome to California.
Or as we like to call it... A vape shop named "Smoke Zone"
Fun fact: if you zoom out on that photo, the sky is grey. But it's not overcast, that's just smoke.
What's the weather like today?
Rainy? Sunny? Cloudy?

Nah, it's Smoke.

Twitter, what exactly the fuck do you think I do?
I'm over here hacking pregnancy tests, reverse engineering gamepads, and making death generators, and Twitter is like "I've got it, I know exactly what they want...

I've had it with these motherfucking poor cheese vat yields on my motherfucking timeline

That's weird. A Pro AudioSpectrum 16 is a perfectly normal 90s sound card for any PC... but this is for THE MAC?
Yeah, it's a NuBus card!
With a weird connector, because it turns out it has a breakout box for RCA and MIDI and such, instead of the normal boring 3.5mm stereo jack.

is anyone else scared that the only solution we're ever gonna get for the Flash discontinuation thing is a Linux-on-JS emulator running an old copy of Firefox with the plugin?
yeah sorry we had to completely discontinue flash because reasons, so now the only way it's possible to even think about playing Crimson Room is to download a 2gb linux image and emulate Firefox 2.0.0 at 5 FPS inside your browser
that said, as terrible a solution as that is, someone's gonna make a lot of people happy when it finally exists and everyone with MyOldGame.swf can finally redeploy it on their site, even if it's now a gigabyte of .js files instead of of 400k of SWF
