I think it's cool accessing the microSD is so easy.  Adding and/or removing files is quite easy now because of that.

Not long ago I picked up a ZVG Zektor generator. It allows you to connect a computer running a special vector version of MAME and it can be wired directly to a Vectrex for display (or arcade vector monitor).

I'm building a couple of wiring cables so I can connect it to run on the Vectrex to see how the arcade version of Star Castle and other games run on it. It will be kind of cool running those games with the Vectrex overlays. It will also be neat to see Asteroids running.

The ZVG is a custom card that connects to a computer via the parellel port and uses DOS and a Soundblaster audio card.
