I'm still on; just been travelling, getting over jet lag, and then hit with computer problems (sad laptop battery; sad laptop with DNS issues).

Plan is to see what I can help with (MGC, the games archive website) if I've not left any of those too late. :oops:

See you this weekend. :D

A few hours ago I got back from driving around Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Wor..Leciestershire in a baking oven. A few cups of tea and a tub of ice cream, and I'm going to get some kit ready to go over to Halifax tomorrow. :)

I'll be bringing:
Master 128 - with it's intriguing display corruption that only shows up on Tricky's games (even though everyone elses Masters display ok)
BBC B
CUB monitor
Laptop + LCD screen
Matchbox co-pro

..and my latest minor update to my Tequila Worm work-in-progress game. You've no idea how much I've been pulling my hair out re the intricacies of a hardware-scrolled double buffered screen this week :)
I'm going to ..

I'll be along Saturday Morning by 9. If there's no table for me, I'll be having words [-X

Will bring MDFS, cabling, sockets and clock, master+copro, monitor, riscpc, soldering gubbins, world's supply of kynar to see if I can't get this riscpc motherboard back in the land of the living... Better bring some flux and IPA too. Also, scope, multimeter, xilinx programmer and kryoflux.

And a transit.

That reminds me - is anybody taking a User Port MMC interface with them? I want to see if I can get MMC-ADFS to recognise if it is absent.

Thanks to Ian's Econetted Atom I was able to finally get the Atom support working in SoftMDFS. The Atom NFS is so primitive it asks the server for the catalog header in plain text, a function not supported in any file server after Level 1 - until now! :)
