I've just made a quick and dirty TV output adapter for my quickstart board.
I'm not posting pics yet as this one really is a bodge job but now I've proven to myself that it works, I can write a full guide up about it.
I know my guide will be sort of re-inventing the wheel as the subject has been covered plenty of times before but I'll do it anyway

I've just spent the past couple of hours writing a tutorial on connecting the VGA port on the PropBOE.
I never realised how much time goes into these things.
I'm going to put it on the forum and let people have a look.
Here is a copy of it. I hope someone finds it useful.

I've been looking on the BOE landing page and noticed that the guide for getting VGA working hasn't been uploaded yet.

It wasn't super simple for someone who doesn't know what they're doing (That's me)
I even found a couple of code examples that I just couldn't get to work at all.
I'm going to
While looking around the net for something completely unrelated, I found this
It's a video showing a propeller based system working on a scalextric track.
The prop controlls the start lights, counts and times the laps of the cars and counts down the remaining number of laps.
I was impressed anyway
