Not more than a day and a half into our KickStarter campaign and we’re lighting up the tech blogs and creating a bit of a buzz about this! We’re up over $11,000 and are pacing for our goal, but it’s going to be an uphill battle before too long as the praise is almostĀ  out matched by the hate. haha.

But with any project such as this, going on a scale such as this, we knew this was going to be a reality. But, press is press, good or bad and this is what we need to get the word out there.

So anyway, if you haven’t checked out the KickStarter, be sure to do so at the pic below and I’ve also added the links to some of the major tech blogs and what they have to say about it.

The SNES-001 Advance was a huge success! I’d like to thank all who took a look and helped tip off the main sites like Engadget, Hack-A-Day and PC World! All three of these major news sites ran some pretty good press about the unit and I’m quite happy with the end result! Though the unit is still on eBay and no bids as of yet, it still has a day and there have been over 1600 views on the page and that in it’s own right has been amazing! So I’ll keep you up to date with that as more info become available.

But, no good triumph comes without consequence. Over the past three weeks I’ve managed to loose my job of nearly 5 years and have had one of my dogs (a Boston Terrier) fall ill with an eye ulcer which ended up costing my wife and I a cool $2500 to fix…yeah, ouch and a “WTF!!!” kind of ouch. So needless to say, the penny pinching is now upon us as our savings have been drained and I won’t be bringing in the same cash as I used to. But with that said, I do have a new job lined up to start on the 16th of July. So I’ve got some free time in between, but still won’t be taking the vacations we thought we would be.

But enough of that, this is a modding blog, real life is for the day time! I’ve got a couple more projects going that hopefully will hopefully add to the list of completed mods shortly, including a GameBoy Advance mod and finally going to finish up my computer desk with a few major adjustments from what it was supposed to be initially. I’ll be making posts about these in the future, but of course, the work logs can be found over at made-by-bacteria.com.

Again, I thank everyone who helped make the SNES-001 Advance such a success and we’ll see where these next projects go.
