After the success of our last craft review, How to make monster rocks, I was eager to find something equally as fun. After scouring the internet and not finding anything that jumped out, we headed out to the local Wal-mart and wandered around aimlessly until something came to mind. (more…)

I’m always on the lookout for new crafts to do with the boys. You know how it is, you see this super amazing – professional picture of a craft on the Internets only to find out that it was nothing like you expected while actually attempting it with your kids. Don’t worry about it, I got your back.
Welcome to the first craft review on DadvsKids! (more…)

I will be the first to admit it, since the last post, progress on this build has been barely crawling along as I haven’t been able to spend money on parts at the moment. So this post will mostly be a catch up to bring you up to speed to where it’s at today. With no further ado, let us get into it shall we? (more…)

In, um, last weeks update I left off just after getting the I/O panel set in the case along with the power supply jack. I’ve run into some delays as I am saving up to order some new parts, also I cannot stress enough how much things slow down now that I can play games on this thing. (Much of my time has been spent trying to level up enough to beat Dragon Warrior…) Oh, that’s right, since the last update, a lot of progress has been made including getting it to work!

This weeks update is a couple days late as I’m still trying to get a hang of finding time in my new schedule to write for the blog. After NES-PC, Part 4, some of the wires and connectors I needed have arrived, so I ran out and picked up some sheet metal to begin work on the frame needed to mount the DVD drive and ports. I’ve seen another NESPC mod that had a removable frame, while that is cool, I kind of prefer to have it secured to the base. Since it drives me insane when you try and take part electronics only to find the lid is attached to bottom with slightly too short wires, I’m also not attaching anything to the lid. So I’m going to continue building everything up from the bottom and we’ll find out on the way if it was a mistake.
