Re: Palettemate / enhanced video ULA with 4096 colours

Looks nice. What software did you use? It looks like CircuitMaker. If so, how did you find it?

Re: LOL DESCRIPTION

I'm not at all sure about this. It is a legitimate limited company. That means that no one else is entitled to register a corporation in the UK in that name. But it would not mean that you would get the IP associated with Acorn Computers. So you may not be able to legitimately use (or protect) the A...

Maker Faire UK, Newcastle, Spring 2018

Yesterday, I attended Maker Faire UK 2017 at the Life Science Centre in Newcastle. It was an interesting mix of exhibits. It was very much a family event and activities were often targetted at novices and children. There were many projects involving coding, Raspberry Pis, Arduinos, 'robotics' (I use...

Re: New Acorn 8bit? Should there be one?

Sorry if this is off-topic.

It would be designed to be simple as possible without compromising on functionality, so novice ...

I plan to book some dates in the next few days unless people have any concerns about this venue or the location generally. The dates I am looking at are 16 to 18 March 2018.

Re: BBC native code to github?

You can post any code you like on GitHub. If it recognises the language it does syntax highlighting. But it will work fine with any language, displaying it as formatted text. It will still track and display the changes between commits. In my BeebOPL project, I kept the BeebAsm 6502 code up-to-date a...

Re: Model B paged ROM breakout board. Interest?

I'd probably be interested in a board if the price is not too high. Would be nice to see the design before committing. Would probably source my own components (but again, price is a factor). As you suggest, even if there is an 80% failure rate on fake ZIFs they are still cheaper.

Re: Model B paged ROM breakout board. Interest?

I bought a cheap Chinese ZIF socket. It took 2 days to fall apart. It was from a very popular eBay vendor. I wouldn't buy anything overly mechanical from China. Paid the premium for a genuine 3M part. Build quality was like chalk and cheese. This is purely my anecdote. Others may have had different ...
