Success!! 37 inches of 16-bit glory!

After a good half hour blow-job with margarita-ridden breath I finally got the SNES working. Some combination of me switching out the A/V cables, playing with the power cord, and cartridge friction action finally got me a picture on screen. It worked about 50% of the time, but that 50% got me far enough into Super Metroid‘s Norfair until the screen suddenly went blank. 🙁 And of course, since I don’t usually save in the game (because it takes no time at all for me to actually beat it) I’ll have to give it another go some other time.

Anyway, Nintendo’s masterpiece console will soon be a fully functioning member of the family!
