I am one who definitely want the backup loader to run games off of my HD. You know how much money that will save a consumer? i have at least 50 ps3 games, countless number of blu-rays and most importantly 3 ps3's with a disk reading error.
One has been sent in to be fixed at 187 US dollars because as sony says "with the economy being down they were forced to implement their new 29 dollar shipping charge. Now honestly, i have the resources and brains to fix my lasers on my lonesome, but we are talking 3 60 gigs that i would rather have fixed by sony rather than me tearing the seal off only to wait another 3 months and have an unfixable ps3 on my hands that i wouldnt be able to send in to get fixed.
These guys are doing more than just allowing the mass to become "pirates", they are actually turning the tide and putting the consumer in control. With that rant said and done, i commend these guys for the incredible drive to even still be working on this machine for as long as they did and if they can save me money i am more than happy to help and do my part "however small that may be" by HV review, donations or whatever.
I was honestly thinking of buying a FGPA and somehow contacting cjpc to mail it to him. So thanks to the people involved and i will say the pressure you are under from the "people" wanting a miracle overnight must be ridiculous, so take your time, and do what you do best, and if there is anything i can do donation-wise im more than up to it. If your gonna save my hard earned cash from being pocketed by sony, i'm sure i can find some laying around to help out with the cause!
