Gruebox 2 lives!

I finally got Gruebox 2 (the grue-phone based on the rotary chest phone) assembled and sorta working. It’s put together, but I’ve redone the solder joints between the handset and the speaker and mic jacks several times, and they’re still really noisy and temperamental. I will likely have to pull it apart again for some further diagnostics, since most games are unplayable (and in many cases unlaunchable… since it can’t even parse the game names.) I have successfully played “Guess the Animal” and gotten the phone status, but Zork was painful, taking 3 tries just to quit the game.
