Hey thats pretty nice, do you have the 'ready to power off' LED on the back
of the raq2's rigged into that system?  I always thought that was a rather

Sounds interesting, what about the buttons any mods for those yet?
At some point I figure its mandatory that we make a hack whereby
entry of up-up-down-down-left-right-left-right-select-enter prints "+30
lives" to the LCD.
