Oh yeah, I have a lovely singing voice (especially after a few brews!). :lol:

PS Once you get past the Kentucky accent that is! :)

Okay, here is a 2nd video. Again, nothing production values here, but
I switched to a Pandigital 8" tablet and it seemed to be a little better
quality video. This video does show more of me actually using the
STacy, and it's desktop.

This is the 3rd video I made - it was actually filmed during the day (I'm a night owl
by nature and profession) so again, the quality seems to be a little better. You can
see the modified speaker grill, 1.44 meg floppy disk drive, and Ultrasatan much
better.

PS Very little audio on this one, what's there is inadvertent.

I decided to do (yet) another video of my STacy. This session shows the STacy's
ability to use an external monitor, in all 3 ST resolutions. I also filmed it using
the PAK 68/3 accelerator boards compatibility mode, which basically turns it
back into a stock 8mhz, TOS 1.4 STacy. Finally, I showed it playing color games
on the external monitor.

I was in a room that wasn't all that well lit, so apologies for the low quality.

Wife at work, daughter had a friend over, got some "me" time to play
with my STacy. Set up on the dining room table, formatting spare SD
cards, wirelessy telnetting into DarkForce, Inside the 8 bit BBS, and
the YYZ BBS. Even played some Hitchhikers and Ultima III. 8)

Almost seems unreal actually using the STacy now, after all the time
we've invested in it. Good times, great people. :cheers:
