Syd Explores the New Place in the Night

In the interest of exploring the new place, my cat has been ending up in weird places (like caught inside the inner workings of the back of the dishwasher) and as seen here when I opened the cupboard at breakfast time.  The soldering gear is for working on the arcade cabinet's control panel, not for making western omellettes.

Because the chips that make my arcade machine work were kinda hanging on wires when I first installed them, I completely unwired the control panel to move to my new place, so the chips wouldn't be banging around in there when the machine was taking the hour-long truck ride. Today I wired them up properly, with the chips mounted in the cabinet, and I was relieved that I finally got my original Pole Position steering wheel working. Coolio. Much neater wiring job this time. I may leave wiring up the "Player 2" side of the control panel until tomorrow.
