Ball Paper Android Game I've just published a new free game on the Android Play Store. It's a simple puzzle/action game similar to the old Windows Game JezzBall. The goal is to cover a certain area of the screen with "wallpaper" while balls bounce around preventing you to do so. Look inside for screenshots.

Converting a mini TV to a composite monitor Some time ago I acquired a combined TV/radio/lamp/everything unit. Unfortunately analog broadcast television has been terminated in France at the end of 2011, rendering this unit practically useless. I thought I'd try to make some use of it by converting it into a small composite monitor and possibly play some games on it.

USB NES Pad adapter A while ago I published an article about my Nes controller USB conversion. However I was not quite satisfied with it as it required to cut the plug of the gamepad and make it unuseable with an NES again. This new revision is a pluggable adapter and does not require to touch the precious original controller :-)

I've neglected to upate the news on bidouille.org recently, but over the last few months I've been quite busy working on another site that will be the sister site to bidouille.org. I'll be offering kits of all my hacks and electronics stuff, and some basic parts and components. I'll make sure to put all the cool stuff I can find as well.

My life has changed a bit as well and I've now moved to a new, much smaller apartment where it is very difficult to store and use the various smelly, corrosive chemicals that I need to etch my own PCBs, so I'll probably have all my boards made by a fab house as early as prototyping stage which means that the turnaround to the shop should be really fast.

So here it is : vikits.com. Go check it out !

I've also updated the software that runs this site to allow me to post more frequently to keep you updated with the state of current projects as they go. That means that I'll probably stop posting both in French and English, as that is considerably more work, and post only in English as of now. I feel that most of my French readers can understand English well enough.

I still can't reply to comments however, so while I iron that other update out please bear with me, and if you expect a response from me use the "contact" link above.

Cheers !

Ogre J'ai retrouvé aux tréfonds d'un répertoire d'archives mon premier site Internet, datant de 1999. N'étant pas de ceux qui renient leurs origines, je le remet en ligne ici. Pour un site de cette époque, il n'est pas trop mal, il n'y a même pas de banière "en construction" ;-) L'article sur les fractales est plutôt bien écrit, j'en reprendrai probablement la suite.
