All posts by Godzil

Hello! I am Godzil (or Gozilu) also known as Manoel. I'm the main (and currently only) member of 986-Studio, which allow me to put all of my serious projects (ok some are less serious) and to speak about electronic and computer things. I'm one of the few people that still works on the WonderSwan to document and make it working in modern environment, I make (useless) electronics devices, have a lots of project for the Oric computers, and tons of project to work on in general. My main work is software developer in the embedded market, I really enjoy working on the verge between hardware and software, and most of my knowledge on the hardware side was self thought (I still have a background in electronic from my diplomas) I'm also occasionally a game developer. I hope you will enjoy my blog, Cheers!

New Forum

Hi everyone,

I’ve just embedded a forum engine to allow discussions about my projects or whatever that are not directly related to the blog entry I made.

You should be able to log in the forum by using the same account you may have created on my blog.

If you have any problem with it, please tell me on this blog entry, or in the forum if you can log on it 🙂

Ho and you can use the link in the menu bar to get to the forum 😉

Soon I will try to integrate the blog comment with the forum so that both will work together. I’m still trying to understand how it work and if it really work, as my last test wasn’t really convincing.
