Internal Inspection of the Sega Mega-CD (VA0) HAA-2910

A quick stroll around the internals of the Sega Mega-CD HAA-2910. This one is a VA0 revision making it a launch day console! If not launch day very close to launch day. Definitely in time for Christmas – probably.

In other news geocities.mcretro.net has had a little bit of work done. Mostly in the way the term “geocities.com” and “www.geocities.com” are handled. Turns out Apache2 has a module called mod_substitute and it appears to work well. Not much is online yet while I primarily use the Athens root as a test bed to find obvious issues and try and fix them server-side before pushing more data online.

One of the more exciting things I’ve come across is the way GeoCities stored pictures, images and line bars. Lines are inside icons. I mean sure, I guess? Why not!
– /pictures/
– /pictures/icons/
– /pictures/icons/lines/

Wait a minute, that wasn’t exciting at all. Maybe it’s just too late on a Sunday for me to gather my thoughts. Haha! I’ve also moved a few of the retrojunkie.net hosted websites under the mcretro.net subdomain umbrella:

  • fishtank.mcretro.net
  • frank.mcretro.net
  • geocities.mcretro.net
  • pepper.mcretro.net
  • sonic.mcretro.net
  • space.mcretro.net
  • Slowly but surely I’ll piece together bits and bobs from here, there and everywhere – the internet of old. That said, most of it is coming from that one terabyte GeoCities torrent. Yikes!
