    Short project of the day -- a homemade composite cable.  I cut the wire off a TI-99/4A RF box (which was broken) and cut a composite cableset in half and BOOM -- a composite cable that will work for TI-99/4A, Atari XL/XE, or Commodore VIC-20/64. 
    There was some cursing involved.  Twisting 4 ground wires together and getting a good solder on them is TOUGH man. 
    A screen photo of the cord in action is the last pic.  It looks and sounds really good.

    Almost new carts I got today. Popped Mario Cart in first and got to level 24 and 226,300. I never got anywhere close to that at any version of Mario Bros in my life.

    just got a nice screen protector for my iPad mini. After taking about 40 min to assure no air bubbles or dust were present I managed to apply it, very pleased with result. Best of all with the stylus has a little drag now and matte finish so not so smooth like on glass, feels more like paper. Tested to make sure, hey I’m no pro but it’s honest art at least 😛to be fair I used the simplest drawing program, no layers or magnification, literally the same as drawing with colored pencils so I am pleased. At least I can make something without a reference. 🤷🏼‍♂️
    My take on HULK.

    Well, the time has come to replace my desktop computer.  I have stretched its life as much as possible but no the DVD drive doesn't work, none of the USB ports work, it freezes when I try to copy and paste files...  I had not realized how old this machine was!  I've had it since 2011!  I believe it has provided me with good service for 13 years! 
    So, I just ordered a new monster computer from Dell.  I9 processor, 64 GB RAM, 4 TB hard in two hard drives, liquid cooling...the works.  Hopefully it lasts as long as this one!  LOL  I did get the extended warranty for the next 4 years.  The one thing I hate is having to transfer data from one computer to the other.  Thankfully, most of my stuff is backed up online, so that will make it easier to restore files.  But setting up programs is going to be a PITA!!!!  Wish me luck!
