Re: P.R.E.S. AP5 - Original and Re-Design

What's actually needed is the ACP ADFS E00 with the Hard Drive code put back in place, IDE code added, keeping Page at E00. So will need to use the Bank Switching, on the AP5, to gain the extra memory. The RAM overlay is there already . . . Oh! And JGH :roll: =D>

My VP-996 will program these. Just postal cost, if anyone is interested?

Re: Two BBC Micros free around Mar 2018

Or . . . just let us look after them for you e.g. exactly what Arcadian suggested but if/when you return you get them back :D

If it is permanent (?) maybe we just look after them until you're settled and then we ship them over to you . . .

Re: P.R.E.S. AP5 - Original and Re-Design

Prices and options . . . The cases are not yet available and probably won't be until next month. So, if you would like your kit or built AP5 now, please let me know.You'll only pay for the kit or built unit now. The down side: When the cases are available you'll have the extra postal charges. Sorry,...

Re: Pineapple Virus !Killer

It was written and maintained by Allan Glover. He did work for various people including Pineapple and Baildon Electronics/P.R.E.S. He eventually went to work for Acorn where I lost contact with him.

I did go to his wedding . . . Must dig out some photos . . .
