Re: Z80 on a BBC B

I think they are just normal drives but part of the torch z80 set up. They are not switchable either :(

Re: BBC Model B takes up smoking

Ah when I did the Master, it was left for a number of days but I was still a bit weary :) So you touch the points of a single capacitor together?

Re: BBC Model B takes up smoking

How long could a BBC PSU capacitor hold a charge for? When I did the ones in my Master I left it turned off for a day, flicked switch on and off etc. I'm still very wary of working on electronics. In general, there isn't a simple answer to this, as it depends on the circuit, the voltage and the cap...

Re: Megadrive 1 power regulators

While it is in bits, you might as well wire up a 50/60hz switch and a region switch too :)
