Re: Who's got the most souped-up BBC?

I'm rather pleased with my Master w/ Cherry keyboard which contains MultiOS, CoPro, DataCentre, CF HD and BeebSID.

Needs a BeebOPL though!!

Re: Missing game on Ebay. Did anyone get it?

Ah, so that's where the demo originated from!

Col that's a special tape you've got there, don't bin it!

Any chance of a nice photo? And maybe a WAV/UEF for the archive? :) (Just 3D wars, not the non-Acorn guff!)

I'll open a booking thread nearer the time. I think this has already become the booking thread, Alex! ;) Anyway, well done on getting the extra room thrown in - I'll wait and see what your ideas are for it, but if required I'd be more than happy to set my gear up (likely running homebrew/retro soft...

Re: Power Software Joystick Interface ROM (Electron)

Oh, I've got one of those somewhere. I'll see if I can dig it out so the ROM can be dumped. (I did dump it years ago together with a load of other Elk roms but the floppy got corrupt).

Amazing dedication here from flibble...

Re: Updated - BBC Micro .MMB

We don't have FTP access available to end users, but if you were to periodically send updated .mmb files to the admins we could add them to the stardot server? Also, as the existing MMB file was based on the STH Collection (which I collated back in 2002) any problems with specific games within the c...

Re: Proposal: ABUG London and International

Regarding locations, when I Iooked at the Stardot members 'map' it always struck me that Basingstoke seemed to be a very central location in terms of proximity to a lot of Southern members. Not a bad suggestion at all, reasonably central, and also a fast train from London! Obviously Heathrow area w...

Re: Proposal: ABUG London and International

Ok, yep March would be good - but we might want to look at moving ABug Cambridge away from May next year (assuming Jason F is still happy to host) otherwise you'd have two Southern ABugs back-back. So the potential calendar for 2017-18 could look like this: 2017 May: ABug South (Cambridge) Summer: A...

Re: Proposal: ABUG London and International

From what I recall reading, when some of the guys on here were last looking into running at ABug at Bletchley Park, TNMOC were not open to the idea of opening late on the Friday / Saturday (which to me is a major component of the gatherings) so I think we're best off sticking with CFCH for Southern ...

Re: Proposal: ABUG London and International

Hi, I think it would be great to see a 'true' Southern ABug weekender added to the Calendar - in addition to the Cambridge ABugs of course rather than instead of it - as I appreciate that Cambridge still isn't local if you're in London or further South. In terms of the Calendar there have been some ...
