There is plenty hot air in the sauna. So you just need to bring swim ware. If the room tomorrow is as cold as this evening I'll definitely visit the sauna a few times :mrgreen:

There are many people on the guest list that I don't know. Are there badges available or should every visitor create his (no women?) own badge so that I know who I'm talking too?

Hello Dave,

I don't think that the model reallymatters, it is for an Atom so it's quite low resolution. It will also be connected to a Pi Zero, I'll bring the adapter from mini HDMI to VGA. Thanks in advance,

Now that we are back to the main topic I can ask for the last time .... "can anyone bring a VGA monitor for me?" I prefer to have two monitors but one will also do. If no one can bring me a VGA monitor then I'll have to leave my Atom at home and I can't show you some new (software) develop...

I'm glad you got it working. Imagine you had to send it back for repair :lol:

As long as the main board is in good condition, any Atom can be repaired :!: We have sufficient knowledge and spare parts on this forum

Re: My New Acorn Atom :)

It looks like the RAM at #2C00 - #2FFF is failing. That will cause the menu program to fail. The rest of the memory map is fine for your configuration. You could try to swap IC12/13 with IC14/15 and see if the RAM gap moves to #3000-#33FF. If so, the 2114's are faulty. Otherwise check if pin 12 of I...

It looks quite easy in this film - even for people who have a desolder station and hot air gun. Did anyone here try this at home? (My wife is out of town with the car otherwise I'd try it immediately :mrgreen: )
