l33t flea market find

I bought one of these for $5.00. It didn't come with the disc, but that's OK because it was really easy to reflash into one of these. Because I know that everyone cares, it's hooked up to my Xbox and I'm currently streaming Raiders of the Lost Ark. It's working beautifully. :D

How is streaming video over wifi, does it lag? I've been meaning to pick one up. $5 is a steal for those.

It's been playing for about 40 minutes and there's been no lag so far.

That reminds me, Roofus...do you know where the thrift store on Front Street is, down by the metro? There's a Dreamcast there for ten bucks (power cord only, but hey, it's ten bucks). I thought about picking it up myself to see if anybody needed one, but I have two already and am kinda low on cash right now.

Just thought you might be interested.

Yeah, I know where it is. I'm not looking to buy one right now. In fact, I was going to try to sell my Dreamcast stuff as a bundle. Thanks for the tip, though. :)
