    The Nightmare That Gph Made Wiz...

    This console is very interesting, but *VERY* difficult to recover, should something go wrong (and it is TOO easy to make it go wrong!). GPH, I hold you accountable for the headaches that this console is causing me - goodness knows what I'd do if I *wasn't* a computer geek!!. Nightmarish!!

I am more curious about how this can be used as a general pocket device, not so much into the games side of it. Can Fluxbox be...

    Wiz Screen Burn - Has Anyone Had This Also?

    Hi there. After having my Wiz on for about 5 hours (charging) I have noticed considerable screen burn - a ghost image of the main menu, whilst I am in the terminal especially, but everywhere on the console. Rebooting does NOT fix this. Not too impressed tbh - looks like my review will have some...
