Free NUON controllers

Let's finish this.

In cleaning out my garage I realized I still have a couple dozen controllers left. These are ones that I tried to fix by quickly cleaning the contacts, but couldn't get them working. They may yet function if you take some time to clean them properly. They might also need some light solder work as midnight8 discovered. I don't know and don't have time to debug them. Some are physically broken with buttons or sticks missing.

I have two boxes of about 10-15 controllers each. I will send them to anyone willing to pay the shipping costs. As a bonus I'll throw in a couple NUON pens that I have left. I'll upload a picture of the pen soon, but they're pretty nice Cross pens.

if noone takes you up on iot I would be willing to pay shipping but it will have to be after I get power back from the hurricane and get mail running here. not sure how long that will be and I can't work on them without power anyway. so if noone takes them I will for sure. maybe a few days before I can check the board again but let me know.

Sounds good. They're stored under my bed at the moment so no worries about time frame.

Just to be clear, these are controllers of unknown status. They may or may not work if you clean the contacts. And I would like to ship a whole box at a time. Still interested?

If i end up with any of these after my power is back on I will do like I did last time and If I am able to fix any I will distribute them 1 or two at a time for a very very reasonable cost. I think I got like 7 bucks shipped for the last ones just enuff to cover contact cleaner and gas to buy the stuff and ship them. So no fear if you don't get a box I would put you on the list if I am able to fix any. If they can't be fixed then u really didn't miss out on anything.

skah_T did you find a willing person to take the controllers and pens off of you?

midnight8 has offered to take one of the two boxes of controllers. I'm just waiting on his payment for shipping. The other box is so far unclaimed.

I had several takers for the pens, but I still have a ton left.

I do still have a bunch of the controllers. They are mostly untested and may or may not work. They may work for you immediately or you may need to clean the contacts on them to get them functional. Worst case there would be some defect that prevents them from working entirely.

I'm happy to send you as many of them as you like provided you pay for shipping.

Man, I just don't come by here enough.

I know you were selling those controllers by the box, but doesn't look like you've had any more takers.

I'd take 2 controllers (sorry, can't do much with an entire box hehe) and a couple pens if you still have any. PM me a paypal address and how much shipping would be to 84401 and I can send payment immediately.

Skah_T shipped me a few and I just wanted to say thanks publicly.
Also, you can update that first post with a smiley since you shipped mine :D

He sent 2 pens as well and those are just cool!

Oops, that list is way out of date. I just removed it instead. Glad you like the pens!

I need two controllers. I never did get any for my player. Please let me know if there are any left.

Thanks,

I still do have some controllers left. Once my current round of auctions finishes I will start going through and contacting people that have asked about them. Be sure to send me a PM if you are still interested.

Please remember, these controllers might not (and in all likelihood, will not) work without some debug.

I have one last set of three controllers all boxed and ready to go (along with two NUON pens). I made this package for someone that expressed interest, but I never heard from them again.

This is the *last* batch of controllers I will send out. Send me a PM if you're interested. Price of shipping only.

Remember that these controllers are likely non-functional. These are meant to go to someone that wants to try to fix them.

    they did not winterize any of the plants and they froze
  • The Helper The Helper:
    it is not that power consumption went up it was available capacity went down with power plants freezing
  • Varine Varine:
    What a fucking disaster. Are all of the Texas people okay? I see TH is, are we the only two?
  • Varine Varine:
    How have the other states held up? I just got power back so I have no idea what's going on, we didn't get warning
  • Varine Varine:
    Why the fuck didn't they fix this ten years ago when it happened?
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I'm in it with you and TH as well. My power has been in and out, and I have a ruptured pipe that I need to fix, shouldn't be too bad to fix myself.
  • Varine Varine:
    I hope you're staying warm! Apparently the supply is coming up so hopefully we can get back to normal power soon, mine has been on for six hours now.
  • M Mulciberxp:
    My power has been off most of the last 2 days. We had a generator installed 3 years ago though, so we're staying warm. Water is another issue...
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Where I live has a pool so we are using that to get water to flush the toilets. We have enough bottled water to drink and brush teeth and stuff but it has been a few days and no shower though....
  • Varine Varine:
    I had some water in gallon jugs, and got our water back on yesterday. We don't seem to have any leaks, but I haven't crawled down there to look yet.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    still no water I cannot remember when I last showered now I know how they felt in the old west lol
  • Varine Varine:
    My poor plants are happy, they aren
  • Varine Varine:
    aren't used to going this long without water or lights or normal heat. I think a couple of them froze, but they look like they'll make it
  • Varine Varine:
    Well one of them is pretty rough but I think it was sick to begin with, that one always had some problems.

  • midnight8 midnight8:
    a positive could come out of this. So many people trapped at home could put a dent in the covid numbers in Texas
  • Varine Varine:
    That dude, Tom Boyd, is really upset about the backlash from his "it's your fault you're freezing" thing because he claims he resigned before saying it, so it wasn't like he said it in his official capacity or anything.
  • jonas jonas:
    Almost as if he was saying "screw you guys, I'm going home"
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm fairly new here still but that seems to be the analogous message by several of our politicians.
