Adafruit Raspberry Pi Zero Case $4.75
https://www.adafruit.com/product/3252

This is a basic, classic Pi Zero enclosure with a black base and a clear top. The case is as minimal as it gets, coming in just two pieces of polycarbonate that snap snugly together. This case will keep your Pi Zero safe and secure while also looking super sleek. You can use all of the connectors on the edges of the Pi: mini HDMI, microSD slot, microUSB power, and microUSB port. There’s also a cut out to allow a 2×20-pin header to be soldered onto the Pi Zero.

The enclosure was designed by Mike Doell – just like our elegant, beautiful, and functional Pi Case for Raspberry Pi Model B. Made of ultra-durable, super-glossy polycarbonate, it is both good looking and tough enough to toss into your pocket, bookbag, or toolbox. It has slim openings for all your cables, an easy-to-access slot for your Micro SD card, slots for your Pi Camera, and a space for your GPIO cable to extend out from the Pi.

The Pi sits nicely in the base, latching to the corner pegs, and the lid fits snugly on top. If you want to break-out your Pi you can simply snap off the GPIO slot and add pHATs, Bonnets, GPIO cables and other accessories with ease.

Raspberry Pi Zero W $10
https://www.adafruit.com/product/3400

If you didn’t think that the Raspberry Pi Zero could possibly get any better, then boy do we have a pleasant surprise for you! The new Raspberry Pi Zero W offers all the benefits of the Pi Zero v1.3, but with one big difference – built-in WiFi!

More specifically, this giant upgrade is the addition of a BCM43143 WiFi chip BUILT-IN to your Raspberry Pi Zero – just like the Pi 3! No more pesky WiFi adapters – this Pi is WiFi ready. There’s also Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) on board making the Pi an excellent IoT solution (BLE support is still in the works, software-wise).

This is another of the “Lost” videos recovered after the server update. This was back in March and was one of the first attempts at retrying to use Camtasia (TechSmith) to perform the post-film editing. The editing was sloppy as I was trying to salvage a single long video into something usable. The lesson learned here is that it is not possible to take a single-take video and have it be easy to edit.

Shortly after this video was done I began having problems with Camtasia and I switch to VideoPad which at first seems to be more reliable. However, after a few videos, I discovered that it was taking about 1/3 extra time to render and longer video segments would get frozen on one frame for 30-120 seconds making the video useless.

GMH 036 Deconstruction Geek gotta have pot and knobs

This very long 28 minutes deconstruction video is more stuff from the University surplus center, there is a ton of it in my basement. Do you think I got $25 worth of stuff from this college junk? Let me know in the comment section.

This time I was after knobs, meters, and counters from a pre-amplifier that was $3 and 6 Shure microphone mixers at $1 each.

A Geek has gotta have pot and knobs.

This another of the “Lost” videos reclaimed after the new server move. Very similar as to the stuff you find behind the couch when you move it.

The quality is poor and this video has taught me many lessons

* Short video segments are easier to edit than loooooong ones
* Rambling is not interesting
* Indirect lighting works better than overhead lighting
* Jump to fast mode and back in not a good effect
* 20+ minute videos are just not popular or interesting
* I have broken up with my girlfriend (Camtasia) because my new girlfriend (ViedoPad) treats me better
* It’s ok not to know everything, just go back and fill in the blanks later
* 3+ hours to edit any quick video it just too long
* Too much editing makes the final result look choppy

If you watched this entire video then I will buy you a beer the next time I see you, you deserve it.
