Sony MSX HitBit Capacitor Replacement

I made an oopsie in today's video and soldered a resistor where a capacitor should be, no harm though, just a few mA turned into heat during operation.

Anyways thanks to everyone who pointed this out, I have added some surface mount tech to the HitBit to sort this out:

 Jobsa goodun, still seems to function, so this cap is probably belt and braces to eat any transient noise and stop the logic chip getting confused, either way, HitBit is alive!

Sorry for the blog / vlog synchronisation issue!

Ok, I dont really have any fancy pants automation to keep my Blog and YouTube Volg synchronised, I do it all myself and I have been rather lazy! I can see that I am well over a month out and will have to settle down and add these entries! However, if you are chomping at the bit you can head over to my YouTube Page at: https://www.youtube.com/thebackofficeshow

With CES2018, Hoover Dam, Detroit Motor Show and my Tesla Model 3 adventures I am pretty busy, but I promise to keep the videos coming! Thanks for your patience!
