Similarly, please ensure that the giver is comfortable with you re-selling items you have accepted as a gift. We cannot be held responsible for what happens in these trading forums or for deals done via PM. This must be done at your own risk. If you aren't comfortable with this - make the trade via an alternative site which can apply safeguards of their own. Be sensible - if someone approaches you to trade via PM who is not posting in the public forums, this may be a sign that they are not entirely what they seem. Please report it to the moderators if you receive an unsolicited message from anyone suspicious, so that it can be investigated and hopefully stop anyone being taken advantage of.

Speakers wanted

Postby helpful » Wed Aug 02, 2017 5:43 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm after some speakers. Not the electronic kind, but the human kind who talk about stuff!

I'd like to do a Beeb Bodybuilding Chat (do you see what I did there?) at a ROUGOL meeting. Most (probably all) of our members started out on Beebs and many still have them, so it would be good to show how to make good use of them. This would also be good for some of the newcomers to the forum who have just unearthed their Beeb from the shed and are wondering where to start.

Things that could be covered include some/all/none of the following:
- pros and cons of the CF/SD/MMC storage addons
- where to download disc images and how to mount them to play old games
- getting data on/off Beeb floppies
- setting up Raspberry Pi co-pro to play Tube Elite :-) (funnily enough, most of our members also have a Pi lying around!)
- other addons such as BeebOPL, enhanced video ULA, etc???

Suggestions for other things that people would like to hear about gratefully received, please post them here for discussion.

This would probably be best with a couple of speakers each talking about the bits they know best. It's also less intimidating that way :-D

Our meetings are in a pub/restaurant near London Bridge http://rougol.jellybaby.net/bem.html and take place on the 3rd Monday of every month, so the next few dates are 21 Aug, 18 Sep, 16 Oct, etc.

Volunteers please? Drop me an email on the ROUGOL address - info@rougol.jellybaby.net

Thanks,
Bryan.
