Posted by gakon

Wow, I didn't think you guys would get going on the premium stuff so soon. Glad I renewed!

Posted by pseudomyxoma

This sounds like a great idea

Posted by Canteu

Daggerfall alone was worth it. Colour me satisfied after this.

Posted by chogi

More of this Vinny!!!

Posted by VoshiNova

oH SHIT!, Thanks guys!

Posted by Korolev

These random videos have actually proven to be the highlight of my week. I am very glad I remained a subscriber.

Edited by Silver-Streak

Oh god. If this is a new trend along with the Jeff video, these are THE BEST THINGS EVER.
Edit: Also, Vinny's "I don't know, I really don't, I probably shouldn't be doing this at all" is the general way that you learn electronics today.

Posted by LiK

Haha, awesome.

Edited by AllanIceman

This stuff is just great! All of it.

Edited by VicRattlehead

Premium memberships used to be worth 50 bucks, now they're worth over 9000 bucks

...yeah I went there

Posted by RE_Player1

I have a feeling this year is going to be way better for premium content. I like the Happy Hours but this is the kind of stuff I love.

Edited by Cyrisaurus

If I can get one VinnyVideo a week, I will be a subscriber for life.

Oh man that screw moment made me lose it. haha

Oh snap! Xenophobe! I used to love that game.

Christ @Vinny, dust that baby off carefully. Use a hand-held puffer blower (Will should be able to set you up) to clean up around the coil and then the monitor chassis board, it's not directly dangerous to have dust on it but it's not good either, in case of humidity hitting for some reason (small leak in the locale) it could grime up real bad.

You'll have to discharge the monitor from under the suction cup into yourself to have a big chance at dying too, zap caps into yourself for ugly shocks or passing out depending on how much they're storing. Beautiful cocktail cab, appreciated this video, not just as an arcade collector, thank you!

e: Gives me an idea, since I've got my cabinet in my living room, what if I gave it an IEC320 standard power socket in the back instead of a 30+ year old power cable?

Posted by TullyAckland

Vinny seems like the nicest person on the planet.

Posted by Wacomole

So many funny moments, would have been a crime if nobody got to see this.

BTW. Another tip for knowing what something looked like before you took it apart... take a bunch of pictures on your phone.

Posted by Clark

Love it!

Posted by Aishan

More Vinny is always good, but this is an especially great piece of content.

Vinny is clearly a natural with working with dusty, old-ass electronics.

Posted by Sauson

These random subscriber videos are awesome

Posted by Ineedaname

Everything in that video, I want more, that was amazing.

Posted by KarlPilkington

Pretty cool.

Posted by Kato

THIS is why I am a subscriber! Fantastic!

Posted by kingschiebi

That's pretty cool and useful. Not because I do have an arcade machine, but because my wife always starts looking funny at me when I disassemble a PS3 to clean the laser of the drive, replace a PSP screen or something similar. At least she will now know that this is perfectly normal behavior to spend half a day on the ground while being surrounded by screws tools and duct tape.

Also, get Vinny to have some Jar time, too. First two episodes can go exclusively about his thoughts regarding the Witcher and Warhammer universe. As a bonus, include 3 minutes of "Vinny reads.." which is a live reading of any passage he likes in Italian.

Posted by Henrikhoe

YES More videos like this

I would also love to know more about vinny, ryan and brad etc, like that video jeff did, the jar thing. IT was really deep and i loved it.

Posted by Vexxan

Never Not Flapping!

Posted by kickinthehead

The suspense was KILLING me. The entire time I was thinking "They wouldn't post this if he didn't end up fixing it, right? Right?""

Posted by SuperSambo

I don't care about arcade machines or sound boards, but I do love Vinny.

Posted by Forkstik

Love these PREMIUM videos!

Posted by acas2011

Vinny being a champ, what a great way to start a long day of classes.

Posted by sonicrift

This was fun! I'd love to see more like it.

Posted by kollay

I feel better now knowing Vinny is wearing a black shirt.

Edited by K9

Don't do anything risky like this again Vinny. Use expendable interns in the future for stuff like this. Be in the video but direct someone else to touch the electrical equipment.

Posted by CaLe

I enjoyed this really.

Posted by JayHayabusa

These random events videos (Jeff's and Vinny's) are just what I want from this site!!

Posted by Rmack

Random videos like this are what I miss about the old office. I'm a fan of them becoming the thing I pay for!

Posted by MEATBALL

Success! This was great, and even just a little bit of production effort goes a long way.

Posted by LordXavierBritish

$50 well spent.

Edited by YoThatLimp

Man between the dave+vinny, Jeff and Vinny videos we have already eclipsed the vale of last years membership. These are good.


...or something.

Posted by Zecks23

Awesome, would love to see more videos along these lines! Also, Vinny!!

Posted by HobbitCy

great fun : )

change that plug : )

Posted by EnduranceFun

Exactly the kind of content I want to see more of. So awesome seeing Vinny doing things.

Posted by IceColdGamer

This is friggin' fantastic. Excellent content choice guys. Thanks Vinny.

Posted by steevl

Loving these subscriber videos.

Posted by Yalbit

Videos like this are awesome. As someone who has no experience with old cabinets this is great to watch.

I agree 100%. The happy hour can be hit or miss, but it is usually pretty good. It is stuff like this that I really love though.
