Awesome work!! :mrgreen: Thanks for posting! For the screws, I got them from HobbyKing, the exact part is in in the BOM if I'm not mistaken.

I've finally gotten some serious play time in on my portable, and it is freaking awesome! :D Thank you Alec!

I needed to add a bit more kapton tape inside to prevent a short from occuring when playing Bugz. Apparently I squeeze the controller super hard when I am constantly holding down B and rolling my thumb to press A at the same time. Based on the hand cramp I got after beating Bugz on the train ride home today, I would have to say "certainly" I squeeze the controller too hard rather than "apparently". :lol:

This is perfect for showing off to people. I can just walk around with it and hand it to someone for them to play. Much easier than the soft cooler I would carry around with me that had a display and its power brick, a computer speaker and its power brick, the Uzebox and its power brick, and then going "crap, there are only two outlets here".

I've even had people ask me "Is that a new Nintendo?"
