    This Week's Gadget Warehouse is another great Viewer's Video!

    As usual, our viewer's video starts with an email to gizwiz@twit.tv.  Here's the one we received about today's video:

    Subject: Personal gadget warehouse submission: A telnet BBS running on an Apple IIe
    To: gizwiz@twit.tv

    Hey Dick and Leo!

    Back again with another fun Apple II project. This time it's a Platinum IIe running a BBS that's accessible via telnet thanks to a Raspberry Pi!

    We love showing videos from our fans! We'd love to show one of yours too, but you need to send it to us first! Here's how:.

    Want to be a part of The Giz Wiz Show? Then submit your own video! 

    Here's what we're looking for:

    Your home made Videos -- two to three minutes long - in the any of the following categories:

    I bought a piece of crap! Did you buy something you ended up hating? We won't get you a refund, but we might be able to give a platform to vent your disappointment. Remember, "family friendly" language applies.

    I Invented This! Do you invent something? (Or did a friend or relative invent something.) We can't market it for you, but we can help get the word out. Show us what it is, and how it works. Even if it's a prototype, you can get our (and the audience) reactions.

    My Gadget Warehouse! Okay, so you don't have a warehouse. It doesn't matter. Just tell us about your favorite old gadget(s). When and where you bought it, and why you're still hanging on to it. 

    My favorite gadget of all time! Show us what it is, tell us what it does and why you love, or loved it!

    Post them on YouTube and send our producer, Jason, the link! We'll do the rest. (Or possibly nothing, but that's unlikely.) Remember, videos should be just 2 to 3 minutes long. Low production value is fine. Even welcomed; so our stuff doesn't look too bad by comparison. We've set the bar low. Don't trip over it.

    All show submissions go to gizwiz@twit.tv
