64: Wiggle Your Vectors
I’ll just park that show title right here, and you can thank Brent for that one! Even though February is always a hectic month for us (getting ready for the Louisville Arcade Expo) and such, we didn’t skimp on the free entertainment this month and managed to cram out 3 hours of shop talk on vector HV cages (hence the show title), a DIY Z80 pod for your Fluke 9010 tester, the absolute best IC puller known to man and a multi-Scramble kit that had Brent spending his own money faster than Whitney can – and that’s some trick. We also give the Pins their due and pay some respect to the fantastic PAPA tutorials and the good work done by Bowen Kerins and his team.
Also, we’d like to give a special shout-out to Scott Danesi (www.scottdanesi.com) as he has graciously allowed us to use his MOST EXCELLENT music as the new official soundtrack for the podcast. Yep – we are now officially almost as cool as Total Nuclear Annihilation.
Here’s how the timings for the show break down:
* Segment 1 – 00:00 – 01:15 – Monthly updates
* Segment 2 – 01:15 – 01:56 – Tech and Spend Brent’s Money!
* Segment 3 – 01:56 – 02:41 – News and Feedback
* Segment 4 – 02:43 – Outtakes!
|As always, remember to check our Facebook Page for content in-between the episodes, as Brent and I keep a lively presence on the podcast page and we enjoy great discussion on trending topics in the hobby.
