    @Jamin3131 Ho ok. Yes the agreement was accepted. Now I'm waiting for other people doing their job. :/

    @FreedomGundam I have to move away from the island since it's too pricey to buy. House is in Laval, very next to the Cartier subway station.

    It was fun being semi-informative / being sarcastic here. Hopefully tech talk can start somewhere else if possible. Long Live the BUTTHOLE!

    Ho wow.

    @LLeg3nd Only 1 month? Isn't a bit short to find an other place? How about the knowledge still here?

    I think it's been coming for a while. I do wonder where the BUTTHOLE will go next.

    I just heard that SRK Forums are closing.

    i've met (not IRL) a lot of people here, so i wanted to give a quick shoutout to everyone who has helped me here.

    Thank you everyone.. i hope tech talk still lives somewhere else.. (Discord maybe?)

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart
    VAMOS

    It's been real guys; I had a fun 4 years on this board. I did start using it less and less though because I got tired of all the redundant 16'er and 17'er threads.

    I owe everything I know about stick modding to this board, so thanks to the gurus and all the people who contributed information and tutorials. If it wasn't for all that good content I probably would have missed out on a fun hobby.

    If a TT discord ever gets set up, hope someone will send me a PM before the forums close!

    Damn, is there anyway to backup the tt section? The amount of info on here is enourmous is enormous and it would be a tragedy if it all went lost at the end of the month.

    Damn, this news. I share a lot of sentiment with some other posters here. This forum walked me through my first few builds, but also gave me the tools to get creative when I felt the need. Thanks tech talk, you are all glorious SOB's.

    I know I tend to save useful schematics locally on my hard drive, and I’ve drawn up my share of n00b-friendly circuit diagrams for basic things; wherever Tech Talk ends up, I’ll make sure to keep and post those things again.

    well shit...this is crummy news indeed. I hope this treasure trove of information sticks around in some publicly accessible format!

    I just registered domain jopamods.com and will be starting to develop my own blog, chronicling my projects and mods. I was hoping to share this here once I got everything up and running next month...
    I guess I now just hope to be able to link the URL to a signature on a profile...somewhere in the future...

    made my own copy of RTD's MCC pinouts but I hope someone is archiving. I can see why they're doing it, they never really finished the transition to the new forums and there are a bunch of broken links in older threads. But man what a bummer.

    @The_Real_Phoenix that's great work on the madcatz qd board. I always liked that thing and glad they kept reusing it in all their models.

    @The_Real_Phoenix
    Yeah, tell me about it. Stupid island.
    I've somehow managed to stay on the island after 2 moves. Was almost going to move off the island on my last move... but no. :P
    But next to Cartier station is not bad; it becomes very easy to get back onto the island and head downtown and stuff.

    @Gummo thanks.

    Here's the latest printed version. Since I cannot print small detail, I change the layout a bit and made a stickers. Bonus now I have the colors of the wires plus the name of the button.

    @FreedomGundam Well I could stay in the apartment (near Jean Talon) that I'm currently renting, but I'm hitting soon my 40, I have to think about my retirement. So I choose a house rather to buy a small condo. My workplace is in near the downtown so I need the subway since I don't own a car.

    Sad to see the forums go. I know that a few years ago I stopped contributing and went back to lurking, as I kind of moved on from this arcade stock hobby, but want to acknowledge that this forum was a welcome diversion and distraction as I was going through some tough patches in life. Being a part of the modding community for like 4 years of my life as a side hobby is a side of me that only some of you know will just be deleted. Take care everybody. I was glad to help when I was here, and will be sad that I won’t be able to lurk to see some of the familiar usernames posting funny or cool shit. Will mostly miss the joystick, ball shaft no homo talk.

    I had posted this on the GD thread, but it really makes much more sense here.

    Thanks to the Tech Talk thread I was able to build my own Happ stick (the main reason I stumbled on this site in the first place), learn the difference in Sanwa and Seimitsu parts, try out new PCBs, learn how to solder SMD parts, built a stick that got shipped to the Philippines, learned to wet sand MDF, had more Dremel references than I ever had in my life, set up 2 wireless dual mod sticks, bought a hand plane (which I still need to get resharpened), at least 5 years of Secret Santa, went to Otakon, found my custom panel art guy for LIFE, spent more on a fightstick CASE than the price of a PS3 (and haven't told my wife how much), continued the annual Rowlf the Dog challenge, actually helped a few locals with some mods that were simple for me but meant the world for them, and connected with a bunch of like minded people that I still keep in contact with on and off the board. The site will be missed.

    Thank you all from the bottom of my heart
    And we build BALLER SHIT! (c) Matskat

    If it wasn't for TT, I wouldn't have rediscovered my love for computers and helping people with them. I also got to participate in the last Secret Santa, which is something I've always wanted to do ever since I've been a member of the site. As someone that's been around pretty much since day 1, SRK has shaped my life for the better.

    Godspeed.

    Me too. Every year I say "Next year", and it hasn't worked out for me so far.
    I'm sure that, wherever we end up, @Darksakul can get it started again.

    So for fellow Canadians looking for some retro console modding supplies and parts, a friend at work just opened up an online store that has a small stock of HD Retrovision and Voultar products. Any Canadian who's tried to get these know how hard or expensive it is to get this stuff over from US stores/suppliers. He's just starting out and trying to figure out which is the best direction in terms of products to keep in supply.
    Have a look if it's something up your alley!

    I earned a full green rep bar in six months just from posting in Tech Talk (right before they got rid of it). Tech Talk will always have a special place in my heart.

    That said, B.U.T.T.H.O.L.E. reset once we move to Discourse?

    GD exists so that @Darksakul has a place where he can be an asshole.

    Either that, or Tech Talk exists so he has a place he can be useful.
