Re: Questions about Roms on a BBC Master...

Hello! Welcome to the forum. (I wrote this at the same time as Coeus, so it repeats quite a bit of what he said!) So, some quick definitions: ROM - Read Only Memory. In the beeb context, these are 16kb chunks that can be paged in and out of memory. The BBC and Master can work with up to 16 of these....

Re: Econet Interface for BBC Master & Upgrade Kit for Model B / Acorn Speech Upgrade

Retroclinic has the 68B54 - not sure how much. The rest of the parts are easy to source.

Modules are getting expensive :(

Re: The Acorn C5?

I can't say that the Acorn name is about to get me to take a punt on an indigogo campaign for a rebranded $140 smartphone... https://www.engadget.com/2018/02/23/acorn-brand-revived-to-sell-phones/ I'm guessing it didn't get any VCs to take a punt either... Although I could, of course, be completely ...

Re: B+64K - 12k sideways ram working

MultiOS can be reprogrammed happily (it's just an eeprom) - I've ditched viewsheet for anfs, put vanilla adfs back on it and it's already y2k patched...
