is a way to load programs onto an unmodified GameCube using only an SD card and adapter. Perhaps I should temporarily abandon my quest for OGRE on python (which is coming along), and try my hand at GC development. Could be really fun! :)
Looks like I'd need to buy an SD card, a card reader for my PC, an adapter for the Cube, and something called Action Replay, which I can exploit to put a bootloader on the SD card. Probably end up spending ~$100 after shipping from several vendors. Hmmm...
