Hello,
As I was trying to add my zip, I noticed the CyanDelta was not allowing me to search my external sd card to select the zip. I have low internal memory, so is it possible so that I can select the zip from external sd card?
Note that I have enough space so that the CyanDelta home directory can contain the expanded zip, but not for both the home directory AND the zip.

Gosh, I wish Nintendo would revisit the old Metroid formula.
If +Nintendo​​​ could do for Metroid what they did for Zelda with A Link Between Worlds, fans would be eternally grateful.

You listening +Nintendo​​? +Nintendo 公式チャンネル​​?

A family member of mine has a legal issue they are dealing with at their workplace. One bit of evidence is a log file from a Windows computer. It is around a quarter of a million lines long when exported to CSV format and contains tens of thousands of records. This being Windows, the date and time formats in the file are weird and its full of inane rubbish ... but they need to sort through it somehow. They were going to pay someone to literally sit down and go through the file looking for specific bits of information.

I hear about this through my wife, and I nearly choke .. It's a csv file .. structured(-ish) data .. this is what computers are for! Humans absolutely suck at this sort of task. Also: time is expensive.

So I tell them to send me the file, explain what they need out of it, and I'll spend a few hours one evening this week doing it. Well, a couple hours spent tonight and I have a little program (written in Erlang :) that zips through their CSV file and produces a file containing an accurate 156-line summary in CSV which they can import into their (sigh) almighty Excel. It does this in a fraction of a second (though I did not write it for speed; it could be faster), is less than 130 lines of code (with proper error checking, etc), and won't make mistakes like a human would 150k lines into the source log ..

Computers are awesome and basic programming skills are the keys to unlocking that awesomeness. It makes me sad that not everyone can write simple programs like this. Seriously, programming ought to be a mandatory subject in school.
