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...

I am afraid that I am going to be only intermittently popping into this event as I have a lot of things going on tomorrow that will require my attention.

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...

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...

Re: Acorn atom repair

The daughter board has a crystal which is marked 4433.615 kHz (or, more, conventionally 4.433615 MHz). This is the PAL colour burst frequency. So, it is probably a colour board. It is not the Acorn official one. Indeed, it may be a home-brew. The more knowledge Atom enthusiasts can probably give you...

I'd prefer to only use one SRAM chip, but it'll need some imaginative address decoding to park that 32K chip between $0000 and $7FFF, while keeping the memory hole open for expansion cards. I think I've got a suitable scheme worked out. Next: installing KiCad... At this level, capacity has little i...

You can join without a webcam. And if you have a webcam, you can choose to join without using it. Although, it makes for a much more sociable event if we can see everyone.

Count me in for the full day. I don't know whether it is interview worthy, but I would be happy to show my replica Atom PCB and, if they have arrived by then, the replica BBC BASIC Conversion Card PCB.
