rather，i cut a square on plastic and "semi-embedded" the usb notebook 250GB on the top of wii.
that's internal, no longer ext.....
Buffalo usb enclosure has the exact white color and contour to match.
Maybe I have you beat here.

OMG we're surrounded by old farts! lol Did you walk to school through the snow up hill both ways with cybercrud? lol
Ha! Agreed! My first computer was also a C64. It's what inspired me to do what I do today. Self-taught BASIC programming on that thing. Wish I still had it...

I turned 40 last month and still can't come to terms with it!!! oh man it just can't be right. I'm saying stuff to my kids my ol' man used to say to me and I just can't help myself.
Anyways I bet none of you have a full size original space invaders in ya spare room??....didn't think so...lol
I remember in 'the day' when I used to literally hold my finger on the tape deck spool so I could get my spectrum 48k games to load, and rubbing t-cut on the atari linx cartridge spades to make em work!
Aaaahhhhhh Halcyon days eh?
Sorry I'm on one now...Ive got a binatone pong, a zx81, and some wicked little Bandi LED hand held stuff that need dusting off in attic. Man, gonna get up there this weekend if my wife n kids give me an hour of my life back.
And as for you Dex, and yes thanks for all your help mate but.... 'mark my words' (there I go again with the dad sh*t) 'time waits for no man....' it wont seem like ten minutes till your like us crumbly ol timers, banging on about cr*p. ;-)
I'm just giving all you y'all a hard time... but then... I was old enough to drive myself to the premier of Star Wars in Hollywood
I dunno why, but all of a sudden my hip hurts! I think it's the realization that I can now be considered an old fart too! LOL! I fondly remember my NES and SMS, which you never had to blow on. And who else remembers having to clean their gameboy cartridges when you got clank lines in the screen? Yep, those were the days!
