So, I'm going to be away for a few weeks (more than a few) and away from my home-base where I can record new videos.  So, in this thread I wanted to post those videos that have been created in the past couple weeks.  I will be creating more, I know in the last video it appears it's the last, but it isn't, I just knew I'd be away for several weeks (i.e. 5ish due to work assignment out of town ).  I have more ideas after this series that I want to develop but I won't be able to for at least a month and I have new items on order that have not arrived to review.  So, it's not the end of the TI 99/4a Wagner's TechTalk videos.  If you haven't seen these, I hope you take the opportunity to look around and hopefully it will be fun/helpful for you.  Please comment below with any recommendations and I'll do my best to add them when I return in late April (I will have internet access, just not the ability to create new TI content as my TI will be at home and I won't be).  Best to all! -Jon

My son and I had so much fun building it!  We (actually I) found it by the side of a dumpster when I went to recycle some cans (I do that mostly to show the kids how to care for our environment and usually take them with me - but not this day).  When I saw that (and 2 others) sitting beside the dumpster I knew I had to find room for at least one of them.  Took it home, rebuilt it with my son's help and man we have a blast with it.  Probably more so for me, I play it several times a week- mostly Millipede after adding a trackball (after thought).  Here's a video I made from my cellphone (not that great) from when he and I were putting it together if you want to see the whole story :)

Thanks to discgolfer72, my nanoPEB now has a case!  I can't thank him enough for his work on the 3D printed model!

Quick question for you.  There are a lot of composite to vga converters on amazon, and they all look the same.  I assumed they all had the same guts and were just rebranded.  Is there anything in particular that led you to buy this one from "ESYNIC"?  I've noticed the reviews of some of the others say these converters produce B&W images from vintage electronics, so I've been reluctant to pull the trigger.  You've confirmed that this one works with the TI, which is great.  Thank you.

I honestly can't say, I based my decision to purchase the one in the video primarily on reviews and what "appeared" would work fine based on the specs.  I knew, in the end, if it didn't work I could return it and try another one.  So, I gave it a try and was pleasantly surprised that it worked really well the first time.  But yes, several did look quite similar and very well may be simply re-branded.  

 

One thing I should have mentioned in the videos is the configurability of the adapter.  After I connected it, I simply pressed on a few buttons to get the proper resolution setup for my monitor.  Overall, it's an impressive device for ~$15.
