Fact of the Day

Posted by Mark

Someone shared this with me in the morning. Did you know the nails on your fingers grow four times faster then on your toes? Also another fact I learned, international banks that are opening up in Kuwait like HSBC and CitiBank are only allowed to open only one local branch according to Kuwait law.

nissan gt-r

Autoblog has tons of pictures of the new Nissan GT-R concept. Supposingly the production car is going to look very similar to this. So far it looks like they have retained most of the characteristics of the previous model which is a good thing. [Link]

Hacked PSP – My Experience

Posted by Mark

Yesterday I recieved my 1GB Ultra II Memorystick Duo and I quickly tried running games off it by copying their iso’s onto the Memorystick and running them using FastLoader 0.7. Majority of the games I tried didn’t work and I even had trouble unraring most of the files. So here are some tips I would like to pass on from my experience.

– Firstly, Mac users, if you want to unrar files, get UnRarX. Its a great utillity that does a much better job then Stuffit. I was getting errors using Stuffit but didn’t get any when using UnRarX.

– Secondly, there are two different types of MemoryStick Duo’s, the regular kinda and the High-speed. Whats the difference? Regular memorysticks read and write at 15MB/sec while the high=speed ones read and write at 80MB/sec. So get the High-Speed (Ultra II) ones since they cost a bit more but offer better performance.

– Thirdly, most of the games like Winning Eleven 9 and Madden 2006 wouldn’t work with the regular FastLoader. To get it working I used Devhook 0.21.

If I have any more tips I will add them to this post in the future.
