30 year old bbc micro reborn

Postby doxuni » Thu Apr 13, 2017 12:42 pm

Hi group,

Just joined this group. I got my 30 year old BBC micro model B back to life, after repairing the power supply, freshly reprogrammed ROMS and some spare parts from another BBC and from RetroClinic...

playing retro games and programming again... :D

You used spare parts from another BBC? Hmm, surely the other one can also be brought back to life? [-o< :D

Yes, I could bring it also back to life. I was even working when I bought it second hand for spare parts for mine...
