Re: Acorn Discord group?

Think of it as modern IRC. I'm guessing most use a smart phone to access it but you can run it in a browser too. Connect to the server and live chat to other users exactly like IRC. A server can be split into various rooms (hardware, software, general discussion etc), users can upload photos and vid...

Acorn Discord group?

Is anyone interested in an Acorn Discord group? I frequent a few other groups (mainly the RMC one and the Amiga one) and they seem to work really well.

Any interest if one were to be created?

Swap - A540 keyboard for an A420/1 keyboard

Hi,

I have a very nice A540 keyboard with my A420/1 and, lovely as it is, I think it really should have an actual 410/420/440 keyboard just so it looks ‘proper’.

So, anyone got a standard arc keyboard they’d care to swap?

Re: Beeb Power Up Issue

The reason is ask is because my beeb has being doing the low burrrp noise and will only continue to boot if I press break. It’s being doing this for the last 30 years! My dad tried to fix it but never managed to diagnose the problem, so I’m interested to read what you’ve done to sort your issue :)

Re: Beeb Power Up Issue

Please forgive my ignorance, but why would pressing break allow the beeb to continue booting normally if one of the ram chips is faulty?

Swap - BeebSID for an AtomSID

Hi,

Anyone fancy swapping their AtomSID for my BeebSID? The beebsid is fully built but doesn’t have the SID chip itself.

PM if you do!

Re: Acorn Atom's Value ?

£260 is a pretty average price for an Atom on eBay. Had it been tested and and photos showing it working it’d have fetched quite a bit more. If you want cheaper then Amibay seems to be the best bet, but they come up rarely on there and get snapped up quick. The other way is to find a collection only...

Hi all, For sale is a brand new, unused BeebSCSI 7_7 which I bought from the group buy earlier this year. https://stardot.org.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16649 I’ve concluded I’m probably not going to use this as I have a DC in my beeb now, so someone else may as well get use from it rather than h...

Workbench 3.1.4 is actually an official release! Yes, after about 20 years the Amiga has received an official OS update. 3.1 was the last Commodore version, and then 3.5 and 3.9 were released by Haage and Partner in 1999/2000. Some consider these to be somewhat non-canonical. 3.1.4 was released by H...
