Fran's Space Attack! Make Your Own Video Multicade 
(November 2013)

So many people have asked about my Space Attack! cabinet and how to make a multicade so here is a simple overview of what you need to do.  A project like this has lots of details that you mostly have to work out yourself because of the differences in cabinets, monitors, game PCB pinouts, and controller options - but this video shows how to get started and the basics you will need to work out.  I built this cabinet in 2000 to run original arcade PCB game board pulls, but converted to multicade PCB in 2007.

Fran Plays Phoenix! 

Here I play a quick game of Phoenix on my custom built vertical Multicade.  Even though I have played this game since around 1980 I still utterly stink at it.  But it is still fun! 


 
 
The Apollo Hoax Conspiracy Epidemic 
(November 2013)

I am tired of the endless outpouring of videos from Apollo hoax nuts - time to rant!

YouTube is part of the problem - Here is a screenshot of the contrary keyword suggestions I mention for video uploads

Music Gear Builders Group Meeting 
(September 2013)

I joined a group of fellow builders to talk space, show off some cool gear, examine a genuine Saturn V engine component first hand, shoot the breeze, and even jam out a bit.  All good fun - and here are some assorted highlights.  Enjoy!
