Re: ABug SOUTH 13 to 15 November 2020 - Save the Date - NOT A BOOKING THREAD

I hope you are well, don't worry about cancelling I already thought that would probably be the case and totally understand, we would probably have had to cancel it anyway even if you had wanted to go ahead due to the current restrictions imposed on us. I will look forward to hearing from you when e...

Re: ABug SOUTH 13 to 15 November 2020 - CANCELLED

Given the latest developments with the pandemic, it is clear that this event cannot go ahead and have taken the sad decision to cancel it.

As soon as things improve sufficiently to allow a physical event to proceed safely and lawfully, I will arrange to fix some new dates.

Re: LOLPRICE

There are lots of 8271s at this price or even lower, but, unlike this listing from £ittle Diode, they tend to come with a free Beeb.

Things I need help/feedback on: 1) Is there anything obvious in my implementation that I've missed that would stop it from working? 2) Could it be that the modern TL866II with latest firmware and software be blocking my external voltage inputs by way of detection? 3) Would anyone be able to lend me...

Micro-soldering - possible (V)ABUG topic

I want to see if there is any interest in a 'micro-soldering' demonstration as a possible (V)ABUG topic. I have become relatively proficient in micro-soldering (although I would not describe myself as an expert). I thought it might be interesting to set up a demo as a way of prompting discussion abo...

Re: Weekday Virtual ABug feedback

I am very much with danielj on this. I really enjoyed last night. I think an event which is essentially just a social event amongst people with common interests is a nice balance to the much more formal nature of the all day events. I think a lot of us are missing out on the social lives we used to ...

Re: Key features of BBC BASIC for Windows / SDL 2.0

I would love to see a talk on this. I often find a need to write scripts and other programs on a PC to support my retro projects but really don't have the time to learn a new language like Python or Javascript. I would be particularly interested in learning how BBCSDL can interact with the native OS...

Re: All-day 'Virtual' Acorn session #4, Saturday 6th June 2020, 9am - 10pm - NOW FULL

When I first started using Zoom I noticed that my webcam video was being mirrored rather than being seen in the normal orientation. Within Zoom there is an option to change this if you prefer. For example, if you were wearing a t-shirt with the Acorn owl logo on it, you'd want it to be facing the r...
