Wordpress site is live!

Hey everyone,

I finally got around to migrating all TWO of my tutorials to Wordpress! The layout was a bit wonky to get to look just the way I wanted it, but I finally worked it out.

http://thepoorstudenthobbyist.wordpress.com

Check it out! It's a bit rough right now but I'll try to make it look nicer.

Also, another update!

I've been taking a summer class that only lasts for eight weeks, but that basically means the workload is double a normal 16 week course. So I've been pretty busy with balancing that, work, and other personal obligations (being a mid-20s guy, a lot of my friends are getting married; also, Nintendo Switch).

But! The eight weeks is nearly over - I plan to use August (before fall classes) as a time to really put some more work into this website. I've gotten a lot of requests to tackle SNES reproductions - and I really want to do this too! - so be on the lookout for that. I'm also trying to put together a video version of at least my NES reproduction guide to make it easier to follow, but I'm not amazing at videography, so we'll see how that goes.

Also, you guys have been great, over the years I've gotten a lot of questions regarding more specific situations and board types for NES repros (for example, converting one board type to another). I'm going to be cleaning up that tutorial and adding in some of the extra research I've done to give a more comprehensive entry.

Please stay tuned, and keep your questions coming if you have them! I might not be able to get to them right away, but I will put in as much effort as I can.

Happy hacking!
