Mark, Anthony, Jeff and Mike.
The three items the raspberry pi zero project had been waiting for. HDMI to VGA converter, usb to usb converter (for the keyboard)
And a usb adapter for programming the SD card.
Nothing displayed on the screen as the pi booted, but fortunately, Anthony knew that the boot config file would need changing to indicate we had a VGA monitor attached and not an HDMI screen. Once Anthony demonstrated how to modify the config file we were in business.
Next week, Jeff is bringing his router for us to set up the WiFi connection.
