13 February 2023 – International Post Enabled

I have enabled international shipping again. If you want tracking, please choose tracked shipping. Standard shipping does not come with tracking. If you choose standard shipping, patience is required. Please don’t send me an email asking for your tracking number when a conscious decision was made to ignore the tracked option at checkout. Expect delays as the Royal Mail network is not fully operational yet. EU customers, sorry, I am not enabling shipping to the EU via this website. I can’t afford to sign up for an IOSS scheme. Please buy from ETSY [] to avoid courier charges. Maybe if other sites and people stopped copying my work and stealing sales, and some of the modding influencers would actually promote my hard work and original ideas instead of promoting those that copy me, I might be able to afford an IOSS scheme. Everyone would benefit. Imagine that world. It would be great. Instead I struggle on in obscurity barely managing to get by whilst everyone else and their uncle gets promotion. Anyway, I solved the Retro Problem in 2023. It was how to switch a Master System 2 between PAL and NTSC. It will be the best mod anyone has designed for the Master System 2 since my original AV mods. It will be ignored. Yay for 2023.

27 January 2023 – Processing International Orders

Hello. I am now processing all the international orders that were on hold. This includes website and Etsy orders. They should be in the post tomorrow. This means I have a lot to do so there will be a delay with processing current UK orders, but if I work all this weekend I should get on top of everything. Hopefully I can enable international shipping and start accepting new international orders again next week. Cheers

15 January 2023 – International Shipping Disabled

Hello. I have had to disable international shipping due Royal Mail removing all their international services. This is because of a Russian cyber attack that has crippled their critical IT infrastructure.

All current international orders that were placed in the week are on hold. I will process them and get them ready to send. As soon as I can print a label for them I will get them sent. Hopefully this is resolved quickly.

29 November 2022 – Website Migration

As you can see I now have a new website. PhP7.4 has become obsolete and has been removed from the server by the hosting company and because my old Drupal site had a few modules that were not compatible with PhP8, I had to make a drastic decision. I have made the move from Drupal to WordPress. Some things are better, some things are worse. It will take some time before all the content returns and there will be a few quirks, especially with mobile views. Product and guide filters are missing because WordPress doesn’t have an easy way to make these. Those product filters really set my site apart from the rest. I will eventually figure out how to make them. So a few minus points from going from Drupal to WordPress. The positives are big though. Checkout and customer profiles are now much more professional with a few more payment options available. I can finally offer Google and Apple Pay. This move will probably kill my number one ranking in Google but it was a necessary move. Drupal Commerce was an unstable foundation that was always a concern to me. Working long hours getting this site back up and running. It’s not easy rebuilding an entire website from scratch.
